When I started to think about why education is so important, I remembered my high school years when I used to spend almost five hours a month on math jobs, wake up at 6:00 am and get ready for my PSAL football game after school. I remembered my teachers, school subjects, study and fun! I never hated school. But I saw many of my peers who hated going to school; I had some friends who did not like the idea of studying. Some needed to be in summer school to be recovered. I personally have always been focused because I wanted to become a software engineer. I know it will be difficult and very challenging. However, I believe I can handle the challenge.
The first thing that seems to me about education is the gain of knowledge. Education gives us a knowledge of the world around us and transforms it into something better. It develops in us a perspective of looking at life. This helps us to build opinions and to have points of view about things in life. People debate about it if education is the only thing that gives knowledge. Some say that education is the process of getting information about the surrounding world, while knowledge is something very different. They are right. But again, information can not be converted into uneducated knowledge. Education enables us to interpret things, among other things. It’s not just about lessons in textbooks. It’s about the lessons of life. One thing I wish I could do is provide education for all: no child left behind and change the world forever!
