Is Education a Basic Need?

By Abdul Ghaffar Jalbani

First of all, we should understand the real meaning of Education. In our society, commonly, education is defined as the process through which one can acquire knowledge and learn skills of reading and writing. Education is not the process in which one’s reading and writing skills develop only. According to scholars, what we learn from teachers or anyone else must reflect in our actions. Our behavior, character, dressing style, and interaction with society is defined by our education. It is often said that degree is just a piece of paper but real education is seen in one’s behavior. 

‘It is wrong to say that education is provided in schools, colleges, and universities only. we learn many valuable concepts from our family members, neighbors, and another member of society. It is also called Education.’

The person, who has not read even a single book in his life but knows the ethics of living in a society is better than the person, who has read thousands of books in his life but unable to know the ethical values of society. Education is the third eye of humans. This Eye helps us in the selection of the right path through which everyone can achieve his or her settled goals. Education tells us about our responsibilities in society and the country. Education makes everyone strong to fight against evil. It is wrong to say that education is provided in schools, colleges, and universities only. we learn many valuable concepts from our family members, neighbors, and another member of society. It is also called Education.

Everyone wants his or her child to become well mannered, responsible, strong, and the owner of a beautiful character. Above mentioned qualities can be expected from an educated child. Education makes us able to understand what is good or bad for us. An educated person knows very well about the ethics of society. Education is a ray of light in the darkness. We can brighten our society through the brightness of Education. In my opinion, people can live without money but cannot without Education. 

Finally, education is a basic need of every human on this planet. To deny this need is evil. Education tells us the open difference between right and wrong. Educated youth is considered the backbone of every country. Anywhere, everybody is judged on the behalf of education. Educated youth can open the doors of success for a country. The bright future of the nation depends on educated youth.
