Importance of Education
Every human being needs oxygen to survive in the world. Education is as important as this because education gives people the knowledge and skills they require. Education is important to people of all ages and it has no limit. Children require education in order for them to learn how to speak and to write.
Education, the pillar of our society, without it progression toward the future would come to a complete standstill and eventually start to regress. Because of this we regulate our education with politics to preserve and equalize it for all who wish to pursue it, or so we say.
We see competition everyday in our lives, the presidential election, every sports team in existence and especially in our own school boards. Everyday there are competing aims for why children should be educated, and that purpose is in a permanent state of flux. The politics at play can be concerning to some.
Looking at the history of schooling in the United States, we can find that originally our education system had the purpose of preparing our students to become citizens for the new world.
