Merits of Education
Education is basically a process of learning whereby we are able to get knowledge and skills through values, habits, and beliefs and it is an activity that is practiced in our day to day activities. Education has proven to be part of our daily activities and therefore we can say that it is also part of our way of living and for this reason we are going to discuss on the different ways in which education has become advantageous to us.
Due to the fact that we are able to attain knowledge and skills from education whether it is informal or formal the knowledge and skills are able to be used in the operation of our daily activities which are able to help us to develop our lifestyle and also our way of living in the community. We all enjoy a good lifestyle and try to live a comfortable life and one of the ways that an individual is able to achieve this is through being formally educated and acquiring a job that will be able to pay him a good salary to be able to meet his financial requirements.
We have been able to find out that most countries invest a lot of money when it comes to education so that they are in a position to offer formal education to most of their citizens in order to empower them economically and provide them with financial benefit to be able to survive on their own and this leads to the country being stable economically and also being able to survive on its own financially. The formal and informal type of education have both contributed to specific professions such as doctors, medicine men, carpenters, engineers and all other professions which have been able to fabricate our lives to be easier through the production of various products, equipment and also technology.
Education generally has been able to sharpen our minds and provide us with a wider thinking capacity so that we are able to calculate and examine certain circumstances and also make decisions depending on our education level and also able to think. Formal education has assisted us to be able to know how to relate with other individuals in terms of mannerism and also certain behaviors. As a result of the exchange programs that are normally experienced in various institutions, this has led to cultural interaction due to the fact that different students are able to come together from different countries and be able to learn together under the same institution. In this discussion, we have been able to talk about the various benefits that are experienced as a result of education, while considering both the formal and informal type of education.
