There are many definition of education but in a simple way education is an act or process of passing on
or gaining general knowledge, building the ability to reason and judge, and generally training oneself or
others mentally for matured life.
Many underdeveloped countries today do not pay attention to the importance of education in the
society and this has made most countries not to be developed. I ask myself what advantage it will be if
most of these underdeveloped countries have people in the government who are well educated and if
they could give proper attention to the education sector of the country in order for the youth to develop
and be able to reposition the country as they are been called leaders of tomorrow.
It is well known that education leads to success and I will be discussing the importance of education and
why I think education is the backbone of anybody that needs to change the world in a positive way.
Education can never be underestimated as education forms the heart of any society. The knowledge of
making new discoveries, executing these discoveries for the success of any society can be achieved
through education. The growth of many developed countries today can be attributed to the quality of
education that is been imparted to the people. People who have quality education are able to improve
the society by making reforms that will cause economic, social and political growth and development of
Education opens your mind to better understand the world around you and how things works. Learning
the different cultures and happenings taking place at different places around the world is possible
through education. Our horizons are been broaden through education so that we can not only confined
to what is happening in our countries but what is happening around the world.
Good jobs today are given to well educated people, this was stressed in the words of the United State
President Barrack Obama, when he said "In an economy where knowledge is the most valuable
commodity a person and a country have to offer, the best jobs will go to the best educated- whether
they live in the United States or India or China". This statement shows the importance of education in
getting the best jobs in the society and holding the best positions in companies.
Education helps you to have confidence in life. You are able to plan your life effectively when you have
education as it will help to analyze problems of life and be able to come out with solutions to those
problems that you might face. Educated people are able to make decisions that can change life in a
positive ways as they will have acquire alot of experience as they learn new things every day.
The importance of education is well evident in developed countries as it play a major role in personal
and social development. Education has been used as a means to alleviate poverty, oppression, and war
as the leaders are well equipped with knowledge to guide the country towards growth.
In some countries, there has been problem of overpopulation which is one of the greatest worry of
mankind. Overpopulation can be attributed to lack of proper and better education. Sex education needs
to be taught to the youths who are adult of tomorrow.
Financial growth in one's life can be achieved through education. Instructions on how to manage money
and invest the money wisely can be achieved when you have good education as you are well
knowledgeable on the ways to start your own business and reducing the risk of getting bankrupt.
Education has been used as a major tool to inform people of their rights and services that they can have
access to. In order to be able to differentiate between doing the right and wrong, education plays a vital
role as youth are been taught what ought to be done and what not to be done in the society and how
they can be a responsible person in the society.
Lastly, children from their early age needs to understand the importance of education. This will help
them have open minds and be able to have the determination to learn new things as their brain are able
to assimilate new things when they are young.
