According to Bacon “ Reading makes a full man; writing an exact man and conference a ready man.” And if someone asks what reading, writing and conference make together, anyone would say that all of them stand for Education. In other words, we can say that education makes anyone complete, accurate and worldly wise. It means that no one is complete without education.
Education is necessary an all-round development of the personality of a human-being. He cannot hope for success, name, fame and prosperity in life without it.
Even a nation would be devoid of any progress, if its citizens fail to have the benefits of education. H.L. Wayland has correctly said,
“Universal suffrage, without universal education, would be a curse.” For the success of any democracy, education is a must. Imagine a country with illiterate ministers voted to power by illiterate people!
An educated man will never find himself stranded in the midst of any difficulty. His brain, developed by serious- thinking during his academic years, will unfailingly arrive at some solution to the problem that besets him. This is what education prepares us for. And most of all, education gives us not only the mental but also physical strength necessary to face any challenges of life with dignity.
Education is not the filling of a bucket, but the lighting of a fire. Education comes from living life, following passions, accessing information, observing, reflecting, and being inspired by wise and courageous elders in the community."The objective of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives.
