I am presenting my speech on the importance of education. I hope that the audience would find it useful.
Education is the process through which a person acquires knowledge or learn new skills. Children are educated at schools. They depend on the school teachers for their education.
Education imparts literary skills. A literate person is able to read and write. He can understand the written content. He can read his emails and can draft his letters and emails.
Education brings great respect for individuals and the nation. An educated person is respected in the society. A nation with a large pool of educated people such as doctors, engineers, and scientists is regarded as an advanced nation. Students can opt for higher education after school. He can join college and universities. Some students join institutions that imparts specialization in specific fields. For example, some students join medical colleges to become doctors, while some join engineering colleges to become engineers. They are able to serve the nation in a great way.
Educated people are more likely to be successful in life. They are introduced to the vast opportunities that the modern economies provide. They can choose to join a company as a paid employee, or alternatively they can venture into business.
In the era of modernization, vocation and technical training is also in vogue. Vocational Education and Training (VET) is important because it trains and helps a person to develop specific skills. Such skilled people work in the specific industry of his specialization.
Education is a fundamental right. A child who is deprived of elementary education is actually deprived of basic human rights. Lack of education is the root cause of social issues such as poverty, child marriage, discrimination, child labour, etc.
Education is important because it develops the thinking faculty of a person. An educated person can think reasonably and take better decisions.
Education opens the doors of the vast knowledge that are stored in books, both physical and online. He can use these information in his life for his own benefits or for the well-being of the society.
Thus, we find that being educated is an important factor for achieving success, building characters, and for living a wholesome and happy life.
