When you walk into class on that first day of kindergarten, all you can feel is a little bit scared, nervous, or maybe even excited. You don’t realize that that scared or nervous feeling will stick with you all throughout your elementary/high school career. Every new grade you enter into will be different, maybe even more or less exciting than the last one. What you don’t realize is that every day you walk into that classroom, you are learning something new even if the teacher is not teaching, but by checking out your surroundings or listening to other students speak. Every day you are being taught something different than the day before, it may be on the same lesson or a whole new one.
As you grow up in school you begin to see the importance of education, and why it is important to show up. Education gives us the knowledge of the world around us and helps us get ideas to make it into a better place, it changes the world far more than we know. It helps us build up our opinions and teaches us to express them. Attending school helps us build up our character and shapes us into something great, it shows us who we are. When you think about it, nothing is more important than learning to cooperate and work well with others. Education helps us acquire new skills and knowledge that will help impact our future. As we talk about how we want our future to be or what we want our future to hold we keep one thing in mind, and that’s if we want to continue our education or not. Education is not just about being smart, but about fulfilling the duties that we will have as our future selves.
Being educated doesn’t just mean being smart, it also means that you are aware of the world and how things seem to work in it. It mentally and physically prepares you for what the future will hold for you. To lead a good life and to get spiritual and material happiness that lasts for a long time, it is absolutely essential to get educated. Education is the only element that is equally significant for all sects, ethnicity, and social groups because it has the power to uplift everyone. Education is the means of upgrading our skills and attaining more knowledge and it is one of the best means possible. Education starts at home so we should take steps to ensure that the environment in our homes is helpful for our children to learn as much as possible.
