Education opens one’s mind and allows for the improvement of one’s life.
I believe education is the most important tool a person can receive that can bring the most success in society today. Education can help lessen the challenges a person will face in life for being equipped with the necessary knowledge, skills, and attitude, one is capable to make better decisions to better his life and of others most importantly.
The more knowledge a person gains, the more opportunities that person can achieve. One example of this is getting better options in career and personal growth. One who has completed higher education can easily qualify for various job and career opportunities compared with a person who has none. Thus, extended education is vital these days, for it equips a person with the necessary skills to easily cope with work demands and to meet the job standards.
I believe education is significant because it helps a person develop a unique perspective of looking at life. It played a major role for all individuals in society. It has allowed the community to succeed both socially and economically by developing common culture and values. It is the reason our world is what it is today. Doctors have been close to finding cures for cancer because of higher education. Our technology has been enriched compared to the previous century, all because of education.
If the importance of education is not recognized, then someday education will become less relevant. Education serves to unite and strengthen our country. Without education, people would not be able to distinguish right from wrong. If this happens, then our society will find itself at a large disadvantage compared with other countries. “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world,” once said a wise man named Nelson Mandela, and that is why I strongly agree why education is important as the key to success.
