The necessity of education - Why Education is Important ?

The necessity of Education in the Life & Importance of the Education

The Education is extremely very important in the life of the human. It provides the knowledge about the world, things, culture, science etc., Without Education is it very difficult to understand the things without the education.  NIC Results here providing why the Education is important.

Why education is so important in our life?

The first thing that strikes me about education is knowledge gain. Education gives us the knowledge of the world around us and changes it into something better. It develops in us a perspective of looking at life. It helps us build opinions and have points of view on things in life. 

People debate over the subject of whether education is the only thing that gives knowledge. Some say education is the process of gaining information about the surrounding world while knowledge is something very different.

They are right. But then again, information cannot be converted into knowledge without education. Education makes us capable of interpreting things, among other things. It is not just about lessons in textbooks. It is about the lessons of life. Education is must for every person living in this world. Doctors, scientists, farmers, artists, writers and full-time nomads all work together to make this world a beautiful, diverse place. It has the power to make your world beautiful. Yes education is a very important part of the life.

The importance of education in life can be understood well under the following points:

Education Makes Better Citizens

Man is nothing but an animal. It is the education that teaches him many things, teaches the manners, rules and regulations of life etc. All these things result in converting man from an animal to well-mannered citizen. Brings Confidence Nothing in the life can be achieved if we don’t have belief on ourselves. Education is what brings self-confidence in us. We get the confidence of doing the things on our own. Our self-confidence then helps us in passing all the difficulties that come on way to our aim. Education also makes us better in communication with others.

Ensures a Bright Future

An educated person lives a happy life always. He/she has a bright future that on one can pull from them. Education wakes the hidden talent and skills of any person. This hidden talent and skills give us employment and a completely secure future. It is the education that helps us in achieving new heights in our life.

Character Building

Education helps people grow as individuals. It opens your mind to many things that you haven’t been exposed to before, and classrooms allow for healthy discussion on difficult subjects. Education helps build social skills, problem solving skills, decision making skills and creative thinking skills. It introduces you to different cultures, religions and thought processes that you may never be exposed to otherwise. Education also provides a stepping stone to the real world, offering many different courses on proper financial techniques, life planning and personal development.

For example, many people are educated, skilled in many trades, but then they use their skills and education to cheat, disturb with creative fouls for society. That’s why it’s important for teachers, boards, syllabus creators to regulate topics to certain value (useful) goals. So that students, connect and focus on the good values and usefulness of their education for the development of society and country.

Education has to be accessible to all.  Thanks to modern technologies and internet innovators. Due to them, now rural people, poor people, and people living in huts are able to get access to education through mobiles phones. Even they can show and guide their kids by becoming aware of the information that they are getting from videos, search engines, and social media.

The necessity of education cannot be over-stated. Education is one of the basic needs of human being. It is also essential for any kind of development. The purpose of education is to enlighten the individual and develop his/her capacity to the limit. It helps us distinguish between right and wrong. It enables us to make the right choices in life and to perform our duties properly. It ennobles our mind and refines our sensibility. In this way education can really remove the darkness of ignorance. Besides, education broadens our outlook. It promotes humanity and universal brotherhood. Thus education promotes understanding among people of all climes. Education can be used as catalyst for a change for the better. Education provides us with the knowledge of health, sanitation and population control. It also enhances our ability to raise crops, increase industrial production, store food, protect the environment and carry out our social responsibilities. Thus education contributes enough towards a change for the better and its necessity can more be felt than described.

Why is Education So Important in Our Life?

When I started thinking about why education is so important, I remembered my high school years when I used to spend almost five hours a month on math homework, wake up at 6:00 AM and get ready for my PSAL soccer game after school. I remembered my teachers, school subjects, the study and the fun! I never really hated school. But I have seen many of my peers who hated going to school; I have had some friends who did not like the idea of studying. Some needed to be up in summer school for recovery. I personally was always focused because I wanted to become a software engineer. I know it will be hard and very challenging. However I believe I can handle the challenge.

The first thing that strikes me about education is knowledge gain. Education gives us a knowledge of the world around us and changes it into something better. It develops in us a perspective of looking at life. It helps us build opinions and have points of view on things in life. People debate over the subject of whether education is the only thing that gives knowledge. Some say education is the process of gaining information about the surrounding world while knowledge is something very different. They are right. But then again, information cannot be converted into knowledge without education. Education makes us capable of interpreting things, among other things. It is not just about lessons in textbooks. It is about the lessons of life. One thing I wish I can do is, to provide education for all: no child left behind and change the world for good!!

One Real Life Story about Education shared by Sundararaman Parameswaran, Software Engineer on Quora

Once I was travelling in train with family to attend a function, I was sitting in the Window seat with my hands placed on the window pane like this

As the train was moving fast, suddenly i felt a water splash in my hand. For a moment I thought it was rain. Remember that it was a dry afternoon in summer. I looked through other windows and confirmed that it was not raining. Then again I felt it . This time harder. I could see water all over below my elbow. I realized what was happening. I went out to the immediate next row in the front.

I could see an old man, probably in his 70’s, and probably a construction laborer(he had his equipment near to his seat). He had just finished his food and was washing his mouth, gargling and spitting out of the window.

Obviously I was angry. I asked him what he thought he was doing, I explained him whatever he was spitting out was coming straight to me because of wind, but to my surprise he did not believe it. His argument was that when he is doing the same thing in the wash basin in the same train it doesn’t happen.

Had he gone to school, had he studied physics, forget him not doing it, at least I could have made him realize easily what he just did.

Conclusion

No doubt education occupies a prominent role in human life. Not to speak of spiritual life we can’t even enjoy the worldly life without education. If professional knowledge develops our professional skill, the spiritual knowledge makes us achieve the supreme goal of life that is selfrealization. Besides it is true that the formal school and college education can make us engineer, doctor, teacher, computer expert only. 

Such formal education, of course, is needed and it has its importance in our life. But it is equally remarkable that such formal education can’t make us a good human being. It is education with values which can make us a good human being, divine human being and can help us achieve the supreme goal of life as well. India is badly in need of Value Based Education and Teaching System which inculcates among the young students values that they need to imbibe and embalm within them. Value based education imparts morality, integrity, character, spirituality and many more. It builds the qualities of humility, strength and honesty in a person. They become better citizens of a country. People with high ethical values will never cheat others. People are taught to co-operate with each other.

They make their life happier and work hard to make others happy .Our history and mythology taught us of excellent values education. We the Indians, talk loud of our cultural heritage, we talk a lot of the characters of Ram, Krishna, Raja Harishchandra, Sita, Savitri and for that matter many more Bhuddha, Mahavir, Kavir, Ravidas, Chaitanya, Ramkrishna, Vivekananda and Ramanujan. Good that India have these great men- god heads and godly as a part of our heritage. We have not to go out anywhere to seek for ideals. We have them all in our mythology and history. But what is needed is that they be not decorations on our walls but should be a source of enlightenment within. And how would that enlightenment come- from where and in what form?

Value-based education is the only means which can give to our young the right direction. There is need for value based Education system in India. Education system should have a holistic approach to education. Education without values no doubt can produce degree holders, doctors, engineers and so on but can it really produce enlightened human beings which considered the main motto of education. This is a million dollar question before our present education system. There is need for imparting proper values among students. A child learns a lot from the people around him. If the social environment is not good, then it becomes very difficult for him to display ethics and values in his behavior. 

We hear it all around that children, students are going astray. News papers report how polluted is the environment of our educational institutes. And how the students are involved in violence, drug addiction and anti discipline activities. The only way to solution of these problems is the value based education. It should be incorporated on a large scale in our present educational curriculum from primary to higher education. It has to be a part of life and life is a constant education and the process of living is a process of learning.
