Why is education important?
But just Why is education important?
As a teen, you probably heard the song “We Don’t Need No Education” by Pink Floyd; probably sang enough of it yourself. You were pretty convinced that you did not need any education or any teachers to bug you into studying to get a job. You see many people that are well off and did not go to school or college – so, why would education be such an important factor?
Well, that’s not exactly true. The first reason to stay in school is that it creates more employment opportunities. When you go to school, you are acquainted with a variety of potential industries that you may not have known before. For example, look at most IT experts nowadays; it all started with a passion for computers and Math. School brought them the information they needed to advance.
If you are well-educated in high school, you can take that opportunity to go to college and earn a degree. The higher the degree you hold, the better your chances of getting a job. Employers are more likely to hire you if they see that you have a degree in your hand. It will send you on the way towards financial security and a higher-paying job.
Education is also important for turning you into a member of society. For example, a person that received education (at school or at home) will know the proper way to behave in public. They will know what should be done in a certain circumstance or how they should act.
Education teaches you to become a proper member of society. It opens doors to multiple opportunities, and it gives you a chance for better pay. Sure, you can learn everything from Internet courses nowadays – but nothing compares to the experience that you gain from the class. The more thorough you are with your education, the better you will grow as a person.
