The importance of education is not a new theme. We have been discussing this for many years. I think most people know the value of education and how vital it is to our society.
However, we have lived in a materialistic side of our society for so long.
Where did that materialism come from? It has a great deal to do with the way we have lived up until now.
Back in the early days of our civilization, there was a great deal of virtue and ethics. There was a lot of spirituality. We all considered ourselves to be part of something larger than ourselves. That is how I am beginning to see the world.
I was taught about education as a young boy. I learned about things like colleges and universities and the important of those things.
The connection between education and society is an interesting one. How many people have considered where their education came from? I doubt very much that many people would say that their education was a product of their parents’ education.
While the products of that education are part of who you are,
your education also gives you the skills that are so important to who you are. It is no accident that some of the greatest inventions have been the products of those who were educated. It makes so much sense that education is so important to society.
We cannot just say that education is important to our society. We have to take a look at what education does for us and then take a look at what society expects from those that are educated. This is something that is always discussed but rarely discussed in concrete terms. Society’s values are always placed in opposition to education. If we want to take a look at the importance of education, we have to look at our own education. Have we always done things the right way? Or have we always done things a certain way that is outside of the norm? Where do we fit in?
We have to realize that our education does not happen overnight, nor does it happen on the day we reach adulthood. We can gain knowledge over the course of our life, but it takes a lifetime to learn everything that we know.
Society is going to expect us to live according to the values that they have set out for us. Some of those values will be more noble than others. This is fine. We should accept that.
Society has gone a long way to recognizing the importance of education for those that go to college and for those that work in society. There have been numerous ways in which society has respected the value of education.
- There are even more ways that society should respect the value of education.
- Education is important. It is important to those that want to be successful.
- We should all be proud of the education that we have received, and it is an honor to be part of this great educational society.
