Education Leads To Freedom

Education Leads To Freedom



There are many things in​ life that I care about, but there few things that I get passionate about enough to​ write about to​ people I don't know. One of​ the things that I just cannot talk enough about is​ education. I believe that everyone who lives in​ the West needs to​ understand the absolute privilege and value of​ education.

I became passionate about education when I lived next to​ a​ family growing up whose children didn't attend school. I have no idea the reasons why or​ even the legal ramifications of​ the situation, I just know that they did not go and that they never learned how to​ read or​ write. I remember feeling really sad about this even as​ a​ little girl. Sad because I didn't understand why I got to​ attend school and learn all these things when they couldn't. And sad because I knew somehow that their lives would be very different than mine because they didn't have the opportunity for an​ education.

I have continued to​ be passionate about education because I have a​ deep belief that education is​ the primary thing that leads to​ freedom in​ the lives of​ people, families and even nations. if​ you think about it, many of​ the choices you make each day would not be in​ your life if​ you hadn't had the education that has given you the abilities you have. For example, take reading alone. What would your life look like if​ you were unable to​ read? Pretty different, huh? it​ is​ the education you've had that has taught you to​ read and hence opened up an​ entire arena of​ possibility for your life.

What does this mean for you? Well, if​ you're reading this article than the chances are that you've had the privilege of​ an​ education and that you are able to​ work. it​ also means that you need to​ take that privilege seriously and use it​ wisely. Think about ways of​ continuing to​ learn. if​ you aren't a​ reader, then that is​ my first suggestion: become one. Become a​ person who enjoys the privilege of​ education by reading and learning all you can.

Another great way that you can use your education to​ impact other people is​ to​ teach them. See what programs exist at​ local schools and get involved with helping children in​ their earliest years of​ education. See what kind of​ impact you can make on lives simply because you have had the gift of​ an​ education. Education is​ far too costly a​ gift to​ be taken lightly or​ wasted.
