Importance of Education in Society


Education, if looked beyond its conventional boundaries, forms the very essence of all our actions. Generally whatever we do in our life is all what we know or have learned in our past life, either through instructions, observation or assimilation. No matter whether someone wants or doesn’t want in making an effort to learn, their mind is always in the process of getting or learning new information or even trying to analyze the similarities as well as all those tiny nuances within the context which makes a certain topic stand out or even sometimes seems to be different for them. If this is true then our mind always have a tendency to hold the potential to learn more, however the truth is, it is we who always stop us from expanding the horizons of our knowledge along with our self-doubt or other social, emotional and economical constraints.

Though most of the people think that education is a necessity for all of us, they always try to use it as a tool for reaching a specific target or for creating their own personal mark in the society. Nonetheless, the importance of education in our society is indispensable and cohering, which is why society and knowledge cannot be think as two distinct entities. Let us find out about different roles of education in our society and how it affects our lives. There are different purposes of education in the society.

Education as Self Empowerment – Getting proper and well education helps in empowering us, thus making us strong enough to look after ourselves in any given situation.

Financial Stability and Dignity of Life – Another importance of education is that it helps us in gaining sufficient academic qualification which is required to get good job whichever is suitable for us at later stage.

Growth in Personal Aspiration – There might also come a phase when the amount we are earning seems inadequate because our aspirations as well as expectations would grow up considerably at that point of time.

Efficiency of Job – For this, higher education is very important after high school and must not be taken as granted. An employer always tries to select those candidates who are highly qualified rather than selecting a candidate who is not so. The reason behind this is probably the employer doesn’t always want to invest in giving training to a candidate, which would also help them in saving their time and money. The organization also always doesn’t want to train them about the tricks of the trade or various other ways of functioning and performing the tasks.

Helps to Plan Further – Those people, who have amassed enough education, would help in steering the path of development and progress for their country. These type of people go ahead and become teachers, scientists, inventors, welfare activists, soldiers, and politicians who work together to form the backbone of our society. Without this pool of intellect, the economic and social framework would likely to crumple and fall, paving its way to anarchy, degradation and violence.

Job Seeker vs. Job Provider – There might come a time when we would no longer feel working for others and would want to take charge and control over our own life and income.
Idle Mind is Devil’s Workshop – Education or learning regularly always gives people of all ages to do something substantial and challenging without letting them sit idle. It helps them to think and use their spare time in doing something productive and worthwhile.

Education plays its role in all spheres of life. If we are aware of the drawbacks of our decision as well as know about the possible contingencies and the collateral damage, our consequent actions would likely to be wiser; this would help us to keep danger at bay all the time.
