Meaning of Education:
It is true that education is primarily responsible for all the inventions and discoveries that have led to development of the mankind. Our entire progress can be attributed to the boon of education by making successful use of it.
Role of Education:
Then, how can education help in bringing change desired in world of the day? Today, our world is beset with many problems, like diseases, excessive population, global warming, hunger, lack of healthcare facilities, lack of sanitation, nuclear holocaust, poor environmental conditions, poverty, scarcity of resources, terrorism, violence and wars. Of course, education cannot serve as a magical wand to solve these and other such maladies but it can, certainly, give a positive direction to the humankind towards finding the solutions.
Good Education:
This calls for the need of good education. What, then, is the good education?
Martin Luther King Jr. had explained aim of true education as, “Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education.” It is very important for inclusion of moral education in our basic curriculum and, thus, make character-building as an integral part of the good education. Good education is a gift that places a person on a higher pedestal in life, compared to his or her unfortunate fellow human beings who could not avail of it, because of their circumstances.
WB Yeats had said, “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”
Therefore, true education can ignite the fire of intelligence. Education should be conversant with the global perspectives also so that a person can easily adjust in any part of the world. This calls for developing global vision.
A successfully educated person can lead the world to be a happy place where peace and tranquility would rein to bring in the prosperity. Therefore, it is important for everybody to
avail of good education for seeking true knowledge.However, only wandering in the forest of education or diving to the deepest possible
depths of the ocean of knowledge, aimlessly does not serve any purpose.
