Can someone tell me why education is important?

Recently, I have started wondering why education is important. I am eager to identify what the value of education is in the present day scenario of the human society. Whether the new education policies and systems are appropriate and sufficient to enhance the present value of education is an interesting aspect to understand the importance of education. Do opinion articles on education clarify the primary role of education and education systems in our society? I want to find ways to relate the education value and the importance of education in our lives.

That’s a reasonable question! I particularly find it so because I myself had a tough time with the topic during my college days.

Anyway, I believe that in order to answer your question, one first needs to know the proper definition of education. So what is education? Education essentially refers to a systematic process of acquiring skills and knowledge through instructions, studying and guidance. The entity who provides such instructions and guidance is known as teacher or mentor while the entity who accesses or receives education is known as the student or learner. Therefore, as per the definition of education, it is a process through which an individual gains such knowledge and skills which he/she is able to apply in different settings, situations and condition when applicable and required in his/her life. Now let’s put this idea in a more subjective way by saying that the need for education lies in the fact that it is a mode of meaningful survival in our society. Don’t you think education helps us have informed points of view on different things in life and enables us to develop opinions? We all know that different people have different opinions on the subject as to why education is necessary and what the benefits of education are. According to some people, education is essentially a process of gaining knowledge and information for subsequently developing opinions and ideas about the surrounding environment and argue that knowledge is distinct from education. But education is the only mode through which information can be converted into knowledge which we can apply in various contexts of our lives. This is extremely significant and value-bearing for us who survive within the modern human society.

The reason why is education important is because it has multiple benefits for the life of an individual human being as well as on the society as a whole. In the present world, human capital is recognized as the most valuable national resource which can be available to any country. Therefore, when education is imparted to a human being, it not only benefits the person but also the entire nation because an asset is created.

The new policies for education are being developed in many countries across the world as a part of the national governments’ initiative to impart education in the most feasible, value-generating, progressive and holistic manner. The new educational systems and policies are important to enhance the value and importance of education in the social setting and from the perspective of an individual. The recent education opinion articles are also propagating the view that new educational systems are necessary to enhance educational value as well as educational systems. Comment- I would like to add that education acts as a fundamental pillar of the society and I agree with your idea that education is important because it provides benefits for the individual entities as well as to the whole society. Apart from that, it is a common idea that the core value and importance of education lies in the fact that it is deeply linked with knowledge gain which is essential for developing a proper perspective of life and the world around us. Also I agree with your opinion that education not only has positive impacts on the lives of people but also educated entities are valuable assets for any nation and the global society. But at the same time, I believe that though education is important, yet it cannot guarantee knowledge and wisdom of a human being which are also necessary elements of an ideal society.

In my opinion, there is no doubt about the importance of education in our lives. A human being gets to be a better person and a good citizen thanks to education. That is why education is important. It improves the professional life of each person and, by doing that, it improves the whole society. Unfortunately, education is not valued as it should nowadays. It is true that a new education policy is necessary, because some aspects of the current policy are outdated and it affects the quality of the education that students receive.
