We believe in the value of being informed. Knowledge is Power and Education opens doors. Lifelong Learning is crucial to continued self improvement and development. Know about News and Current Affairs. Know how things work. Know about Science and Tech. Know about Human History and Black History. Know about Sociology and Religion. With education you can stand tall and proud, because you know what you know, and no one can take that knowledge away from you. You will be like the giraffe walking across its kingdom surveying the landscape from a lofty position.
Being ignorant or ill-informed may end up embarrassing you or someone close to you. It can cause you to be quiet in company because you don't know what people are talking about. It could be that either you have not experienced what they are talking about, or you have not heard or read about the subject matter.
Why is education so important?
Education is undeniably one of the most important aspects of life. As we grow up, education can help us to develop as people, learning new life skills and improving our knowledge. All of this information is then carried across into our daily lives as an adult, helping us to become better, more informed citizens and enabling us to lead happier and more successful lives.
Happiness. Education can improve your levels of happiness, helping you to feel more confident, self-assured and empowered throughout your daily life. Education doesn’t dictate happiness, but it can certainly help to boost it.
Self-sufficiency. Those with an education are far more likely to be able to become self-sufficient and work to earn their own living, making informed and well-calculated decisions in order to reduce dependency on others.
Determination. Setting goals is one thing, but reaching them is something else entirely. Those who are well-educated are more likely to set themselves more challenging goals yet will have the willpower and determination to do their best to ensure success.
Health. Statistics show that child mortality rates drop when the mothers are better educated. Since well-educated people are also more likely to have better jobs, this means that any children they have are more likely to have a better lifestyle throughout childhood.
Economic Growth. The success of a nation is dictated by its residents; a good national level of education leads to economic growth throughout the country.
Freedom. Working across different languages, cultures and countries is made simple for those who are well educated. Knowledge and self-confidence can help to ensure that the world really is your oyster.
Peacefulness. Greater understanding and tolerance comes from education, as people learn about other cultures and embrace the differences. This can lead to peacefulness and a far more ethical outlook.
Adaptation. Education opens our eyes to new ways of working and doing things, helping us to welcome new techniques and adapt to change.
Reasoning and Logic. When highly educated people encounter a problem, they deal with the issue in a calm and collected way, using logic to reason out the most viable solution.
Personal Development. When you sit down and take the time to learn something new, you are opening yourself up to a whole new range of possibilities, learning new things which can help you to grow and develop as a person.
Career Opportunities. Education opens the door to a wider range of careers.
Leadership. Education makes it easier for you to lead others, who have not had the same level of exposure to knowledge.
