Today, it’s hard to imagine life without books or world without schools. From the moment we wake up to the time we fall asleep, education executes itself in countless forms and manners; from all the equipment and services we use to every subject matter we discuss, from any skill or knowledge we invest in our job to anything new we try to innovate. I wonder how human life would be if there was no any system of education and none of the knowledge and achievement of past would have transferred to the next generation. I guess it would be like trying to fill a bucket with a hole at the bottom where every effort to fill the bucket or enjoy what is filled would be a total waste of time.
Aristotle has quoted, “The educated differ from the uneducated as much as the living from the dead.” Understanding of life is solely based on seeking education. Several courses and textbooks we study or knowledge that we gain from nature helps us in developing logical skills together with several mathematics and scientific details. Knowledge through education helps us in exploring of human potential and pull ourselves out of oppression and poverty to take control over our own loves.
Education is that tool which has conserved the past and shows the way for the future. So, here we list the top 10 reasons why education is very important today.
10. Prevents from being cheated
Educated people are less likely to be cheated by anyone, be it in monetary issues or in terms of getting equal opportunities. Frauds and cunning persons take advantage of the unknowingness of the illiterates and loot their money by signing faulty documents or deprive them of their rights. Educated person can easily detect if something’s going wrong and prevent himself from being cheated. It may be from buying date expire goods to not knowing the interest amounts of their investments where uneducated persons will be in loss due to their ignorance.
9. Enhances confidence and makes you heard
Nobody in today’s world listen to what the uneducated have to say, or even if listened are not taken note of. You have a “Prof.” or “Dr.” in front of your name and each word you speak becomes a new philosophy. So, to be an authentic speaker you have to first of all have a proof of your knowledge and an educational degree is what you will need. Any illiterate country guy doesn’t have that courage to stand and emphatically put forward his ideas even if they are worth mentioning. Education makes you confident and able to confront the world and lead with your ideas.
8. Preserves natural resources, art and culture
Educated people are aware of the importance of natural resources and its degrading quality in the present and hence they contribute towards its preservation and proper utilization. Unaware that future of this planet rests on the remaining natural resources, the uneducated people are cutting trees, killing endangered species, and polluting every other source. Art and culture, which carry the history of human civilization, are the foundation of our society and its preservation is equally important, which can be done only with sufficient knowledge and study.
