Education and its importance in our lives.

Education is a very important tool in the life of a human being. It gives an edge to him over other living beings. There is a saying which says a person without education is equal to an animal. The importance of education in our lives and the benefits of education and the importance of education were brought out briefly in this article.


Education is a tool to understand new things and a way to discover new aspects and getting the knowledge improved. There is a misconception that education is all about writing examinations and getting good grades and marks. It is not a tool for getting marks. It is a tool to have a better and interesting life.

Role of Education in our life

Education will give an ability to understand what is right and what is wrong? If the citizens of a country are well educated the country will progress further. The literacy rate in developed countries will always be on the higher side than other countries. Education plays a very important role in the life of a human being. It is the only aspect which keeps a human being above all the living beings. The education gives an edge over other living beings which make them as the front-runners. Education is an ornament for a human being. It brings beauty and value to the human being. Education is the only wealth which will go on increasing as you spend it. The specialty of education is that nobody can steal away from the person and no lock and key are required to keep this safe. The education is the friend you possess when you are in an unknown place. A rich man may be respected in his own place but an educated person will be respected wherever he goes. A person without education is no way better than an animal, people say.

The parents are the first teachers

The process of getting educated starts from the moment you are on this earth. It will get continued until the last second of your life.The process of getting educated will start from the house and the parents are the first teachers for a person. They teach how to crawl, how to walk, how to eat and how to behave. The parents will educate the children to know what is good and what is bad. They teach the importance of values, morals and ethics in our life. They teach why to respect elders and why to behave properly. They will teach whom to respect, whom to love and whom to like. They teach the importance of being good and doing well in the life. The parents are responsible for sowing good seeds in the minds of the children.

Teachers role in education

Once the child starts going to school, the teachers have to educate them regarding ways and means to differentiate good from bad. The teacher will play an important role in the life of the student to develop himself as a good citizen. The teachers should develop the skills in the student which are useful for his life. They should teach them how to develop a positive attitude in their thoughts. The students should learn tools and skills which will be useful for them to invent solutions to the problems in the life. This will make the student have a happy and meaningful life.The parents will sow the seeds and the teachers should nurture them to grow in a correct manner.

The Society and its impact

The society will also have a say in the education of the children. An educated society will provide a good environment to the student to learn and understand the importance of education in their lives.


A country will progress well if the people are well educated. A country will be always in a better position if the citizens of the country know the importance of Education and if they are propagating the same ideology in the society. Education is the way to have a more meaningful life and remain immortal on this earth even after our death.

Through this article the author has brought in the importance of education and it is the must factor for anyone to survive and proceed in the life. Recognising the need for the education even the central and state governments have been formulating and continuing the program of free education for the poor and thus the ultimate aim is to have education for all. But in rural areas where the dependence of the people are in agriculture, the children are also employed in agriculture fields and thus forcefully foregoing their education. Though the government also employed the volunteers to induce the child towards the need for the education, the families are refusing under the pretext that for them the learning of agri practice at the early age is important as their children are the apparent legal heir to the next generation of agriculture profession. So having complete and full education in India is facing uphill task in many states.

Education is the most important thing in our life and it is the backbone for our growth and development.

One thing which is to be understood in connection with the pursuit of education is that merely acquiring academic part of it will not be sufficient to lead a satisfactory and fulfilled life. We have to understand the true meaning of education in our life and then only we can reap its benefits in totality.

A complete education is one which prepares a person to accept challenges of life in a normal way and use his faculties to fight his way up using his educational skills.

The ultimate aim of education is to achieve wisdom in our lives and students or parents should consider this as its sole purpose.

The author has not well defined the education. I have studied education (Shiksha Shastra). I will write two-three definition of renounce educationist. Education is a lifelong process. Human continue learning till death.
According to Gandhi Ji---Education is the all-around development of the pupil.
According to Vivekananda-- Education is the manifestation of perfection already present in human. Means bringing out the hidden talent inside the pupils.

Education is a must and the same must be in accordance with the time. If we look back there was a period, may be hundreds of years back, when no formal education, as we have now, was not there. But people had education in the respective field and performed well. Take, for example, a farmer who knew his work thoroughly, did not have any formal education. He did not undergo a course in agriculture. But he knew his job and worked hard to feed others. Many could not even read and write. Hence education is the knowledge in the field one works.
The modern education, of course, makes an individual capable of choosing his job. And he will have access into the modern technologies developed in that specified field, since he has acquired the capability to search the related literature. Modern education gives the ability to do such selections.
