When I started thinking about WHY EDUCATION IS SO IMPORTANT, I went down my memory lane and remembered all my teachers, school friends. I never hated school as it was a temple for me. I had some friends who did not like studying in classrooms. We soon started loving school and when we left school, there were tears in our eyes because it is not easy to leave a good friend. When I first went to school I liked it very much. But after 2-3 months, I started getting bored due to our teacher as he was from Military (Very strict) and there was a rule that if someone wanted to talk that should be in only English. He told us that this will have two benefits.First, the students who were busy in gossiping will keep silent and second, the students would start conversing in English. Since then I never hesitated in talking in English and that has really helped me in my life, giving my life a proper shape. An educational institution is a place where we learn to read and write and make our lives worth living!


The first thing that strikes me about education is knowledge gain. Education gives us the knowledge of the world around us. People debate over the subject of whether education is the only thing that gives knowledge. Some say, education is the process of gaining information about the surrounding world while knowledge is something very different. But the conversion of information to knowledge is possible because of education. When I ask the people why they are not going to school, they tell me what will happen by getting education since there are no jobs in near future or they do not required require education because they have our own businesses and they have to look after their parental business. But it is the only way to lead a good life. Education is not about learning lessons of the books but about learning the lessons of life.

In our case it is very much important because it not only gives us the opportunities to represent ourselves in society but also brings respect. It also provides us with the means to get settled a good life. Due to our health constraints it is very much required. It is important as it teaches us the right behavior, the good manners thus making us good, civilized and cultured person of the society. It teaches us how to lead our lives. It is the basis of our culture. It gives us an insight to look into our lives and learn from every experience. The future of a nation is safe in the hands of educated and learned. Education is important for the economic growth of a nation. It is the backbone of society.

It is needed to make our dreams come true. Education opens doors of brilliant career opportunities. Better prospects in career and growth. Every employer of today requires his employees to be well educated and having some expertise. It helps create a clear picture of everything around us. Education brings up questions and also devises ways to find satisfactory answers to them. It is education, that builds in every individual, a confidence to take decisions, to face life and to accept successes and failures.
