The importance of education is immense when it comes to an individual’s life, but the actual worth of it is realized by people who can’t get it. Just like the worth of light is understood by people who live in darkness, the value of money is best understood by the poor; education is no different. People who have access to it fail to realize the worth of it and the people who can’t afford education know what value it holds in shaping their lives. The gradual steps an individual takes in the field of education brings him closer to building a happier life. It helps in personal as well as the socio-economic development of the nation. If a man is a seed, education is like the nurturing water that helps develop, shape, and strengthen life.
Importance of education for individuals
On a personal level, education helps an individual learn the difference between good and bad; right and wrong. It helps people gain perspective, find a purpose, form an opinion, and build a dignified life for themselves. An educated person weighs the pros and cons before he performs a task. He thinks before acting and learns the art of righteous judgment. Education helps people build a confident, individual, independent personality. But not everyone who goes to schools and colleges reacts in the same way, as education is the means and the path one takes is their own. The involvement of education in one’s life can be easily seen their demeanor, and these educated individuals go on to form an educated society that is vice free.
Importance of education in society
A society that’s filled with uneducated men and women will always be chaotic and filled with vice while a society with educated individuals builds a socially cohesive society. The society that fails to respect education and doesn’t focus on getting its men and women educated falls apart. People fall in evil traps; they lie, cheat, betray, and are filled with negativity. Such societies are not healthy and never survive. On the other hand, a society with educated individuals helps in building each other and don’t bring each other down. A society that understands the value of education and focuses on providing quality education forms the foundation of not only an economically strong but socially and fundamentally secure country. Education is the only thing that can remove corruption, unemployment, and environmental problems. People who are educated not only understand the vital problems of society but work towards the eradication of them. While the uneducated society overlooks the problem and doesn’t even believe in the existence of issues that affect them, they think of living a selfish life and don’t care about the damage they cause to others.
