The world is fast becoming so complex that the need for education is absolutely necessary in order to secure a good life. There are hardly any jobs left for people without former education. If you were to find one your salary and conditions would be less than good. To give someone an education must be one of the greatests gifts there is

You are right and have exactly explained the importance of education. According to me Education is like the basement of a house. A house cannot be built without a strong basement, but once the basement is built we can use our creativity to built the house in the design that we want.. Education gives us the basement for the life and we are free to choose the career of our life based on our education

Education is very important to me and I think your parents sound educated, what wonderful advice to give you. Knowledge is everything, without it how can we make decisions? How can we help others, raise children and be a meaningful part of society? How can we get jobs? It is true, no one can steal your education away from you. Look what you can do with your education, you can read, write, enjoy conversations and all of that on the internet too! It is so sad to see so many kids going without education. There are those who can't be bothered to be educated and live of the state and then there those who are so desperate for an education that are ambitious and want to get on in life but in their country they don't have free education. Life is very unfair. Rejoice in your education!

Your parents may not have been able to finish their degrees but they are doing everything for you which is wonderful. Parents sacrifice their everything for their children. They sound like they are very intelligent. How lucky you are to have such fine parents.

Although it is possible to get an education without formal training, getting an education in whatever manner is extremely important in one's development. There are some people who have completed college who are neither well raised nor well educated, but a good education, however it is acquired broadens one's outlook and makes it possible to make wiser decisions which normally results in a happier life. Although misfortunes may still come to people who have a good education, such people usually know how to handle adversity better and so the little bumps and scrapes of life don't keep them down.

The education is very important. Without enough education, a person can be quite ignorant. Your parents are right. Nobody can take away your knowledge. It will be beneficial for your whole life. And it's likely you will have a good job because of education.

Education is so important. From the moment we are able to talk to our parents, from the moment we open our mouth and say something and from the moment we learn how to walk and make gestures, all are part of an education either in school or at home, we are educated by our parents and teachers. They nurture us to be who they want us to be. In the end, it is in our hand what kind of person we wanted to pursue based on what we learned from these people. Education will only commence after we finished our studies. Sounds weird? Yes, it is true, because this is the time we can apply what education means. Because of education, we can proudly show who we are, tell the people of what we have and share those knowledge to them by telling them how wonderful being an educated person.

Yes, I have heard the same lesson from my parents. I think education is also a good partner for us, in the different phase of our life, we need to keeping learning and freshen our knowledge in order to fit ourselves well with the society. Besides, education can help us understand the world and the things happens to us. With higher education, you can see the deep-seated side of things and you will be more proud of yourself.

Wow that was a great topic...It was too important for me... My mother wish nothing but to finish my study... She do a lot of effort to help us in financial aspect and give moral support to keep on going and study hard.. Now the youngest in the family is 4th year college this coming semester... The sadness things are some people who can afford to continue study without any problem in financial aspect don't appreciate education...

I think education should last your whole life. I left school at 18 but ever since I have been self educated,or I went to classes, I have taken training courses and I got a degree as a mature student. I will always continue to study and learn, on my own or at classes. It does not matter how you learn but I do think it is important to keep on learning.

I think education is just not important to earn money but its also important to make someone sensible human being like in past ages when there wasnt any education people tend to live in wildly manner the one who got the arm power rules but now education has changed it all and i totally agree with your grand parents that its a treasure but it must not be kept from other its the treasure that should be spread as far as it gets ,it really brings out the most out of humanity and gives the guidelines to live on...

First ,education cant decide our whole life.But it has big impact on our life and the society.Education help people to know him or herself clearly.With education,we understand this society and discover what a kind of person you should be. Most important is that education help people to understand the rules of the society.It push people to remember the traditional civilization and creat new civilization. Education makes this world run faster!

To me, it's the IDEA of education that is important. Education need not end in the classroom. Everything we learn in every way and in every place is a part of our education. I stopped going to school after I finished highschool, didn't go onto University, but I'm doing pretty well with my natural intellegence.
