Is education a gateway to wisdom?To understand this, it is important to understand the meaning of education. Education is a gradual process to acquire knowledge or to learn things. It can be done in schools and colleges, or many other ways like providing proper training, conducting workshops, etc. depending upon the type of education. To educate someone also includes teaching about moral values, behavioral aspects, technical skills, and many more. So, people get educated depending upon their needs and the available resources they have.
After education, acquiring all the knowledge, we enter the world of challenges of professional life as well as personal front. Now the question comes that why we have to face challenges when we are surrounded by all the educated people in our professional life? Why it becomes difficult to explain our views one a matter on the family front? It is all because of the differences in the thoughts and practical approach to the education you have acquired, and it is called 'Wisdom'.
Wisdom is nothing but decision-making ability after a thought process that may include your education and previous experiences.
So, education merely cannot help you to become wise. After completing a master's degree, all the batch mates cannot get the same success even when get taught by the same professors. Here the wisdom makes the differences. You become wise when you learn to apply your knowledge in a wise way to solve the issues. You become wiser when you start learning from your past mistakes and your thoughts are not solely dependent upon your education.
