1 May, 2022

Education is one of the most effective ways to make people better and more productive. It is a tool that can make people easy to lead. Education removes naivety and ignorance from a person.

It is a continuous and life-long process. Education ends at our death. First of all, education gives a person the ability to read and write. Reading and writing is the first step of education. It enhances our knowledge, develops confidence and helps to discover our skills.

Education must be imparted from an early age to get the maximum advantage of it.

A highly educated person is probably very likely to get a job. Uneducated people are probably at a huge disadvantage when it comes to jobs. It seems like many poor people improve their lives with the help of education.

Education makes a person a better user of technology. Education certainly provides the technical skills necessary for using technology. Hence, without education, it would probably be difficult to handle modern machines. Education is a ray of light in the darkness. It certainly is a hope for a good life. Education is the basic right of every human being. To deny this right is unthinkable. Uneducated youth is the worst thing for humanity. Above all, the governments of all countries must ensure to promote education.
