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 for them to learn how to speak and to write. Students at the higher education level require knowledge to gain valuable information regarding what they are studying. Managers in companies require education to improve them in decision making and adapting to changing environments. One cannot say that they do not need any further education no matter how smart they are because education is always improving.
This is why education is becoming increasingly important, and it has now become a necessity for everyone. In the past two decades or so, parents did not see education as important for their child as they believed that their child only needs knowledge on certain issues. If parents still have the same mentality today, their child will find it difficult to live in today’s world, which has become very competitive. Even at a lower education level, students are already competing to determine who will get the highest grade in the class. If these students are already so competitive in school, imagine how competitive they would be when they move on to higher education and, after that, work.
With the standard of education getting higher, an organization’s demand for an individual’s education level is also getting higher. Many years ago, a fresh graduate could apply for any job they want with a high school certificate. A few years on, expectations grew, and the minimum requirement was a diploma certificate. Today, many students with degree level certificates are unemployed unless those are holding certificates from prestigious universities. Imagine, if degree holders are already missing out on jobs, how those with only high school or diploma certificates fare? The level of standard and expectation of education has grown to a level where one cannot afford insufficient education. This shows how important education has become.
