One Year, One Month, One Day
How far have you delayed?
Few are deprived, few are naïve.
The gift of education is only in the hands of great.
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” – Nelson Mandela
The world is competitive, and in this growing competitive environment, it is must for all to have a good education. We need education so that we’re able to understand the society that we live in, to learn about our surroundings better.
Modern time, American educational philosopher, John Dewey, argued that the main purpose of education is not so much to prepare students to live a useful life, but to teach them how to live pragmatically in their current environment. Also education is like an investment in human capital and hence, is one of the fundamental factor which helps in economic development. Education also brings equality among the people and helps in awareness among masses in various aspects. In short, education helps in self-development, economic development and social development.
In spite of the fact that education is the most important tool, today, education still remains a dream for millions of children around the world. According to surveys more than 72 million children are deprived of primary education and 769 million adults are illiterate and hence they have no awareness about how to improve their living conditions and of course of their children.
In developing country like India, where economy still has to rise, education remains the first investment for growth and development. To revive the economy and culture, education plays very important role.
The change I wish to see in the coming year is that every child in the world gets a fair education. No one remains in the dark in respect of acquiring education. Now the question arises, how to provide a fair education? The judiciary system plays an important role here by amendment of certain rules which includes the necessary education till a particular age or to provide free education at primary and secondary level, and to check whether the laws are been implemented and followed, especially in rural areas where literacy rate is very less. The worse part is that education is infidel with politics and is commercialized and hence been corrupted. If our education system goes unchecked and unguided by politicians, then this system is doomed. Therefore, the authority of education should be given to those people who have an inkling towards human perfection and shouldn’t be in the hands of politicians because they majorly belong to the higher class (barbarians) so they will only seek their self-interest.
“If you educate a man, you educate one person. If you educate a woman, you educate a nation.” Talking about the importance of girl education, which is effective because benefits are felt throughout the community when we educate a girl. If a woman is educated, she will be better able to educate her own children also she can influence her own members towards education and an educated housewife can be more effective in the growth of family, is more likely to prosper higher income.
Education shouldn’t remain just a mere dream now. This is the change I wish to see in this coming year. Educating every single child should be our moral right.
