Lets Read a Story

The value of education

Let me share with you a brief story on the Value of Education.

"Once there was a man who was passing through the desert when suddenly he heard a voice calling on him by saying, “Take some pebbles and keep them with you and tomorrow you will be both glad and sorry.

The man did the same and next morning when he searched into his pocket, he found emeralds, rubies and diamonds. And at that time he was both happy and sorry. He was happy because he had taken at least some and sorry that he didn’t pick more. This is true of education also."

So my dear friends, let’s keep the value of education intact so that we do not feel sorry the coming day. Education is that wealth which no one can steal but it increases the more you share it with others. Having said that, it’s important to be fully vigilant of what we are sharing with others in the form of knowledge as we should share meaningful and life enhancing knowledge and not something that destroys people and communities.

A Powerful Tool

The value of education

Education is the most powerful tool so use it wisely. If you are a privileged person, help others by enlightening them, by teaching them the difference between right and wrong and imparting moral values. If education will be based on values and ethics, strengthened by sound moral principles, then our generation will grow up as rational beings. On the contrary, if education will be founded on selfish reasons then no one can prevent that society from its downfall and there will be chaos everywhere.

So let’s take the onus of imparting good values to our coming generation and never lose sight of the primary aim of education, i.e. to become good and responsible global citizens.

Let's Dive Deeper

The value of education

What is Education?

If I ask everyone that saw this Article – What exactly is education? Is it only about academics, acquiring basic skills and becoming a rational being? Or is it much more than that? And, if it is much more than that then can it be defined in clear terms?

As far as my opinion is concerned, I would like to say that education is a process which is carried down for the lifetime and consists of every possible experience one gains from formal or informal set ups.

Therefore, education, I believe, is something not just restricted to books or classroom teaching, but goes beyond it. It should not be about mechanically learning facts and data, but it’s about acquiring skills, becoming creative in everything that we do and realizing our inner strengths and polishing those strengths so that not only we can be benefitted out of it, but our society and humanity at large can draw a positive force.

The value of education

Unfortunately, in the present times, we are leaving behind the primary aim of education, which has just been relegated to the notion of acquiring more and more marks. Besides, the fundamental aim of education has got further distorted by the governmental policies, double standards of our society and of course the poor economic growth.

The Money Making Business 

The value of education

Education has become a money making business for the private schools these days and the education system in government schools is still poor.

How can we bridge this gap? And, how can we prevent such schools from extorting huge money at the name of education? The value of education can only be raised when no child would be deprived of education and his/her potential would be tapped to its optimum.

Secondly, stress should not just be laid down on getting more and more marks, but acquiring practical skills which can later on become a good source of income for those students and aid in improving the country’s economy.

So we as an educational institute should join hands and work together in making education accessible to each and every child living around us and help our students in first becoming great human beings then a great scholar.
