In just a few short years, the idea of free college has moved from a radical idea to mainstream Democratic thinking. President Biden made free college one of his core campaign planks , and one that the first lady has been promoting for years. In his recent address to Congress, the president also signaled that he is ready for legislative action on a scaled-back version of the idea as part of his American Families Plan .

Two weeks ago, the nonprofit College Promise (CP)—led by Martha Kanter, who served as President Obama’s undersecretary for education—also released a proposal that will influence the free college debate. (Full disclosure: I previously advised the Biden campaign and presently advise CP, but have received no compensation for these efforts.)

In today’s polarized environment, the free college idea stands out for its bipartisan support. A majority of self-identified Republicans has supported the notion of free college in some polls. In fact, one of the first such statewide programs was put in place by Bill Haslam, the former Republican governor of Tennessee. While this could go the way of Obamacare, which faced strong GOP congressional opposition despite the law’s origins with Republican Mitt Romney, free college seems different. Biden’s latest plan only applies to community colleges, which focus on career and vocational education of the sort Republicans support, as opposed to universities, which many Republicans view as hostile battlegrounds in a culture war.

But I am less interested in the politics than the evidence of effectiveness. I have studied college access for many years and run two randomized control trials of financial aid , which produced some of the first causal evidence on free college in Milwaukee. Two years ago, Brookings released the first installment of the Milwaukee work, which I carried out with a team of researchers. Since then, we have collected more data and learned more about how students responded over time. Below, I summarize our just-released study (co-authored with Jonathan Mills), compare our results to other financial aid programs, and then discuss implications for the Biden and CP proposals. Consequently, I conclude that the evidence increasingly favors free college and “open access aid” more generally.

What Did We Learn in Milwaukee?

I developed The Degree Project (TDP) in 2009 as a demonstration program in partnership between the nonprofit Ascendium (then known as the Great Lakes Higher Education Corporation and Affiliates) and Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS). TDP offered all first-time 9 th graders in half of MPS high schools $12,000 for college as “last-dollar” aid. Students could use the funds for college if they graduated from high school on time with a GPA of 2.5 and a class attendance rate of 90%. Also, as is the norm with free college programs, students had to fill out the FAFSA and have at least one dollar of unmet need. The aid could be used to attend any of the 66 public, in-state, two- or four-year colleges in Wisconsin. Ascendium provided up to $31 million to fund the grant and, as the main program administrator, sent regular letters to remind students about the program and its requirements. The organization also worked with school counselors to support students becoming eligible for the funds and preparing for college.

TDP was announced to students in the fall of 2011. Using anonymized data, we then tracked students’ high school, college, and life outcomes for eight years, and we recently received data extending through when students were roughly 22 years old. As a rare randomized trial, we could estimate the effects by comparing the control and treatment group outcomes. Here is what we found:

  • For students who met the performance requirements, the program increased graduation from two-year colleges by 3 percentage points . This might seem small, but the denominator here is comprised of low-income 9 th graders. Half of the control group did not even graduate from high school, let alone college. The effect amounts to a 25% increase in two-year degrees.
  • The framing and design of the program as free two-year college changed student decisions in ways consistent with what free college advocates suggest. The $12,000 maximum award amount was selected because it was sufficient to cover tuition and fees for a two-year college degree. The fact that TDP made two-year college free, but only reduced the cost of four-year college, was clearly communicated to students. This appears to explain one of our main results: Student enrollments shifted from four-year to two-year colleges. This is noteworthy given that students could use the funds at either two- or four-year colleges. In fact, students likely would have been able to use more of the $12,000 if they had shifted to four-year colleges. The only plausible reason for shifting to two-year colleges is that they were really attracted to the idea of free college.
  • The “early commitment” nature of the program had some modest positive effects on some high school outcomes . Students learned about TDP in their 9 th grade year, giving them time to change their high school behaviors and college plans. Although it did not improve high school academic achievement, we find that TDP increased college expectations and the steps students took to prepare for college. TDP recipients also reported working harder because of the program (even though this did not show up in the academic measures). This highlights the fact that free college might also help address not only college-going rates, but the long-term stagnancy in high school outcomes.
  • The merit requirements undermined the program’s effectiveness . Though the 2.5 GPA and 90% attendance and other requirements were arguably modest, only 21% of eligible students ended up meeting them. So, they ended up excluding many students. We also tested the two main ways that the merit requirements could have been helpful: (a) merit requirements might provide incentives for students to work hard during high school and better prepare for college, and (b) merit requirements might target aid to students who respond to it most. We find no evidence of either benefit. While students did work harder (see point [3] above), this appears to be due to other elements of the program, not the merit requirements.

Overall, these results suggest that aid is most effective when it is “open access”—that is, aid with early commitment and free college framing, but no merit requirements.

What about the evidence beyond Milwaukee?

Our study also reviews other research on financial aid, including federal aid, state merit aid programs, and the newer “promise scholarship” programs that mimic free college. Our study is not alone in finding that financial aid improves student outcomes. In fact, the vast majority of the most rigorous studies find positive effects on college attendance and college graduation. Given the strong average benefits of college, we can expect follow-up studies to show effects on employment earnings, voting, and other outcomes.

What about the costs? Open access aid is more expensive to be sure. More students receive aid and the aid levels per students are larger than traditional financial aid. Is it worth it? Our analysis suggests it is. We carried out new cost-benefit analyses of multiple programs, including TDP, but also other actively studied programs in: Kalamazoo, Michigan; Knox County, Tennessee; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and one statewide program in Nebraska. We also used estimates of the average effects of aid taken from prior literature reviews. All of these programs pass a cost-benefit test. That is, the effects on college outcomes, and the effects of college outcomes on future earnings, is much larger than the cost to the government and society as a whole. Moreover, it appears that benefits-per-dollar-of-cost are at least as high with open access aid as with more restricted programs. This means that open access aid provides greater total benefits to the community as a whole.

Back to the Free College Proposals

What do these results mean for President Biden’s and CP’s proposals? The table below provides a side-by-side comparison. The main difference is the level of detail. This reflects that the CP plan was designed to align with, and flesh out, the Biden campaign proposal. Perhaps the only substantive difference is that the CP proposal (and the Milwaukee program) includes private colleges. The Biden campaign documents exclude private colleges, though the American Families Plan just says “free community college,” signaling alignment with the CP plan. Both proposals are clearly in the category of open access aid.

There are numerous similarities between these provisions and the Milwaukee program that my team and I studied. All three programs make two-year college free (or nearly so) for all students without income requirements and through early commitment of aid. All three require the FAFSA and high school graduation. Importantly, unlike both the Biden and CP proposals, the Milwaukee program had merit requirements, which undermined its success. This is partly why our evidence is so relevant to the current debate.

Some might wonder why the president has scaled back the proposal to just free community college. This reflects that the idea of free college—even the “scaled back” version—is such a marked departure from past policy, especially at the federal level. Free community college alone would still be arguably the largest shift in federal higher education policy in the past half-century.

Caveats and Concluding Thoughts

We cannot make policy from evidence alone, but it can and should play a key role. Sometimes, policy ideas have such limited evidence of effectiveness that it is difficult to make any plausible case for a large-scale, national program. In other cases, there is enough promise for pilot studies and competitive grants to establish efficacy. With free college, we seem to be well beyond that point. In addition to decades of results on general financial aid programs, we have a growing number of studies on state and local programs that all show positive evidence—the “laboratory of democracy” at work. The idea of a large, federal free-college program therefore has more and more credibility.

A decade ago, it was not at all obvious that this is what the evidence would show. There was really no evidence on free college programs when we started this project back in 2009. Also, there were good reasons to expect that such a large increase in aid would suffer from “diminishing returns”—the idea that the next dollar is less effective than the previous one. This could have made free college more costly than the benefits could justify. Now, we know better.

I do still worry a bit about other factors and challenges. For example, the above analyses can only capture the immediate effects of financial aid, yet a federal free college program is such a marked departure in policy that it could alter political and market forces operating on higher education in unpredictable ways, perhaps even lowering college spending and quality. Also, if the proposal remains focused on community colleges, then this will shift students out of four-year colleges and into colleges that currently have very low completion rates. There are also other ways to increase college affordability and access that do not require free college (e.g., increased Pell Grants and income-based loan repayment), some of which target funds more narrowly to the most disadvantaged students. And there are many details to be worked out as the president’s allies in Congress try to generate sufficient support without (a) sacrificing core principles, or (b) creating new problems that can arise when grafting new federal programs on to widely varying state contexts.

Still, it is not often that an idea comes around that addresses a widely acknowledged problem and has both research support and a fair degree of bipartisan political support. The stars seem aligned to make some form of national free college a reality. The more evidence we see, the more that would seem to be a step forward.

  • Essay on Importance of Education

Importance of Education Essay

Education is one of the key components for an individual’s success. It has the ability to shape one’s life in the right direction. Education is a process of imparting or acquiring knowledge, and developing the powers of reasoning and judgement. It prepares growing children intellectually for a life with more mature understanding and sensitivity to issues surrounding them. It improves not only the personal life of the people but also their community. Thus, one cannot neglect the significance of Education in life and society. Here, we have provided an essay on the Importance of Education. Students can use this essay to prepare for their English exam or as a speech to participate in the school competition.

Importance of Education

The importance of education in life is immense. It facilitates quality learning for people throughout their life. It inculcates knowledge, belief, skill, values and moral habits. It improves the way of living and raises the social and economic status of individuals. Education makes life better and more peaceful. It transforms the personality of individuals and makes them feel confident.

Well said by Nelson Mandela, “Education is the most powerful weapon to change the world”. To elaborate, it is the foundation of the society which brings economic wealth, social prosperity and political stability. It gives power to people to put their views and showcase their real potential. It strengthens democracy by providing citizens with the tools to participate in the governance process. It acts as an integrative force to foster social cohesion and national identity.

In India, education is a constitutional right of every citizen. So, people of any age group, religion, caste, creed and region are free to receive education. An educated person is respected everywhere and well-treated in society. As a kid, every child dreams of being a doctor, lawyer, engineer, actor, sportsperson, etc. These dreams can come true through education. So, investment in education gives the best return. Well-educated people have more opportunities to get a better job which makes them feel satisfied.

In schools, education is divided into different levels, i.e., preschool, primary, secondary and senior secondary. School education comprises traditional learning which provides students with theoretical knowledge. However, now various efforts are being made to establish inbuilt application-based learning by adding numerous experiments, practicals and extracurricular activities to the school curriculum. Students learn to read, write and represent their viewpoints in front of others. Also, in this era of digital Education, anyone can easily access information online at their fingertips. They can learn new skills and enhance their knowledge.

Steps Taken By Government To Promote Education

Education is evidently an important aspect that no government can ignore in order to ensure the equitable development of a nation. Unfortunately, some children still do not have access to education. The Government has thereby taken initiatives to improve education quality and made it accessible to everyone, especially the poor people.

The Government passed the Right to Education Act 2009 (RTE Act 2009) on 4 August 2009. This Act came into effect on 1 April 2010, following which education has become the fundamental right of every child in India. It provides free and compulsory elementary education to children of the age group of 6-14 years in a neighbourhood school within 1 km, up to Class 8 in India. On similar lines, there are other schemes launched by the government, such as Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan , Mid-Day Meal , Adult Education and Skill Development Scheme, National Means cum Merit Scholarship Scheme, National Program for Education of Girls at Elementary Education, Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya, Scheme for Infrastructure Development in Minority Institutions, Beti Bachao , Beti Padhao, etc.

For our country’s growth, we require a well-educated population equipped with the relevant knowledge, attitude and skills. This can be achieved by spreading awareness about the importance of Education in rural areas. There is a famous saying that “If we feed one person, we will eliminate his hunger for only one time. But, if we educate a person, we will change his entire life”. Henceforth he will become capable of earning a livelihood by himself.

This essay on the Importance of Education must have helped students to improve their writing section for the English exam. They can also practice essays on other topics by visiting the CBSE Essay page. Keep learning and stay tuned with BYJU’S for the latest updates on CBSE/ICSE/State Board/Competitive Exams. Also, download the BYJU’S App for interactive study videos.

Frequently Asked Questions on Education Essay

How can the literacy rate in india be increased.

People in rural areas must be informed about the importance of providing education to their children. Also, with the COVID-19 situation, the government should take steps by providing laptops/phones for children to follow online classes.

Are girl children still denied their right to get educated?

Although awareness has now improved, there are still many villages in India where girl children are not provided with proper education or allowed to enrol themselves in schools. This mentality has to change for the betterment of the society.

Teaching subjects/academics alone is enough, or should students be introduced to other forms of educational activities too?

Extracurricular activities, moral value education, etc., are also as important as regular academic teachings.

Why Is Education Important? The Power Of An Educated Society

Looking for an answer to the question of why is education important? We address this query with a focus on how education can transform society through the way we interact with our environment. 

Whether you are a student, a parent, or someone who values educational attainment, you may be wondering how education can provide quality life to a society beyond the obvious answer of acquiring knowledge and economic growth. Continue reading as we discuss the importance of education not just for individuals but for society as a whole. 

a student graduating from university while showing the time and impact their education provides

Harness the power of education to build a more sustainable modern society with a degree from  Unity Environmental University .

How Education Is Power: The Importance Of Education In Society

Why is education so important? Nelson Mandela famously said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” An educated society is better equipped to tackle the challenges that face modern America, including:

  • Climate change
  • Social justice
  • Economic inequality

Education is not just about learning to read and do math operations. Of course, gaining knowledge and practical skills is part of it, but education is also about values and critical thinking. It’s about finding our place in society in a meaningful way. 

Environmental Stewardship

A  study from 2022 found that people who belong to an environmental stewardship organization, such as the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics, are likely to have a higher education level than those who do not. This suggests that quality education can foster a sense of responsibility towards the environment.

With the effects of climate change becoming increasingly alarming, this particular importance of education is vital to the health, safety, and longevity of our society. Higher learning institutions can further encourage environmental stewardship by adopting a  framework of sustainability science .

The Economic Benefits Of Education

Higher education can lead to better job opportunities and higher income. On average, a  person with a bachelor’s degree will make $765,000 more  in their lifetime than someone with no degree. Even with the rising costs of tuition, investment in higher education pays off in the long run. In 2020, the return on investment (ROI) for a college degree was estimated to be  13.5% to 35.9% . 

Green jobs  like environmental science technicians and solar panel installers  have high demand projections for the next decade. Therefore, degrees that will prepare you for one of these careers will likely yield a high ROI. And, many of these jobs only require an  associate’s degree or certificate , which means lower overall education costs. 

Unity  helps students maximize their ROI with real-world experience in the field as an integral part of every degree program. 

10 Reasons Why School Is Important

Education is not just an individual pursuit but also a societal one.  In compiling these reasons, we focused on the question, “How does education benefit society?” Overall, higher education has the power to transform:

  • Individuals’ sense of self
  • Interpersonal relationships
  • Social communities
  • Professional communities

Cognitive Development

Neuroscience research  has proven that the brain is a muscle that can retain its neuroplasticity throughout life. However, like other muscles, it must receive continual exercise to remain strong. Higher education allows people of any age to improve their higher-level cognitive abilities like problem-solving and decision-making. This can make many parts of life feel more manageable and help society run smoothly. 

Emotional Intelligence

Emotional intelligence is key to workplace success.  Studies  show that people with emotional intelligence exhibit more:

  • Self-awareness
  • Willingness to try new things
  • Innovative thinking
  • Active listening
  • Collaboration skills
  • Problem-solving abilities

By attending higher education institutions that value these soft skills, students can improve their emotional intelligence as part of their career development in college.

Technological Literacy

Many careers in today’s job market use advanced technology. To prepare for these jobs, young people likely won’t have access to these technologies to practice on their own. That’s part of why so many STEM career paths require degrees. It’s essential to gain technical knowledge and skills through a certified program to safely use certain technologies. And, educated scientists are  more likely to make new technological discoveries .

Cultural Awareness

Education exposes individuals to different cultures and perspectives. Being around people who are different has the powerful ability to foster acceptance. Acceptance benefits society as a whole. It increases innovation and empathy. 

College also gives students an opportunity to practice feeling comfortable in situations where there are people of different races, genders, sexualities, and abilities. Students can gain an understanding of how to act respectfully among different types of people, which is an important skill for the workplace. This will only become more vital as our world continues to become more globalized.

Ethical and Moral Development

Another reason why school is important is that it promotes ethical and moral development. Many schools require students to take an ethics course in their general education curriculum. However, schools can also encourage character development throughout their programs by using effective pedagogical strategies including:

  • Class debates and discussions
  • Historical case studies
  • Group projects

Unity’s distance learning programs  include an ethical decision-making class in our core curriculum. 

Communication Skills

Effective written and verbal communication skills are key for personal and professional success. Higher education programs usually include at least one communication course in their general education requirements. Often the focus in these classes is on writing skills, but students can also use college as an opportunity to hone their presentation and public speaking skills. Courses such as  Multimedia Communication for Environmental Professionals  provide many opportunities for this. 

Civic Engagement

According to a  Gallup survey , people with higher education degrees are:

  • More likely to participate in civic activities such as voting and volunteering
  • Less likely to commit crimes
  • More likely to get involved in their local communities

All these individual acts add up to make a big difference in society. An educated electorate is less likely to be swayed by unethical politicians and, instead, make choices that benefit themselves and their community. Because they are more involved, they are also more likely to hold elected officials accountable.

Financial Stability

The right degree can significantly expand your career opportunities and improve your long-term earning potential. Not all degrees provide the same level of financial stability, so it’s important to research expected salary offers after graduation and job demand outlook predictions for your desired field. Consider the return on investment for a degree from an affordable private school such as  Unity Environmental University .

Environmental Awareness

We have already discussed why education is important for environmental stewardship. Education can also lead to better environmental practices in the business world. By building empathy through character education and ethics courses, institutions can train future business leaders to emphasize human rights and sustainability over profits. All types and sizes of businesses can incorporate sustainable practices, but awareness of the issues and solutions is the first step.

Lifelong Learning

The reasons why education is important discussed so far focus on institutional education. However, education can happen anywhere. Attending a university that values all kinds of learning will set students up with the foundation to become lifelong learners.  Research  demonstrates that lifelong learners tend to be healthier and more fulfilled throughout their lives. When societies emphasize the importance of education, they can boost their overall prosperity.

Unity Environmental University Commencement diploma covers

The Role Of Unity Environmental University In Society

Environmentally conscious education is extremely valuable and should be accessible to all.   Unity Environmental University  offers tuition prices that are comparable to public universities, and financial aid is available to those who qualify. Courses last five weeks so that students can focus on only one class at a time. This ensures all learners are set up for academic success. 

Unity believes in supporting students holistically to maximize the power of education. This includes mental health services,  experiential learning opportunities , and  job placement assistance . Students in our  hybrid programs  can take classes at several field stations throughout Maine and enjoy the beautiful nature surrounding the campus for outdoor recreation.

Sustainable Initiatives

Some highlights from Unity Environmental University’s many sustainable initiatives:

  • All programs include at least one sustainability learning outcome
  • All research courses are focused on sustainability research
  • Reduced building energy use by 25% across campus
  • 100% of food waste is recycled into energy 
  • Campus features a  net-zero LEED Platinum-certified classroom/office building

While many schools value sustainability, Unity stands out because  everything  we do is about sustainability. We also recognize our responsibility to model how a sustainable business can operate in a manner that’s fiscally viable and socially responsible.

Make An Impact At Unity Environmental University

While the phrase ‘education is power’ may sound cliche, it is also resoundingly true. Higher education has the power to transform individuals and societies. Unity Environmental University understands its power to make a positive impact on the world. That’s why we were the first university to divest from fossil fuels.

The Importance of Free Education

Most people would argue that free college is an unwise decision. The questions of, who would take advantage of the program and where would the money come from to fund such a cause, Perhaps are questions that may be brought up. These may be valid concerns, but free public college is actually a great idea. Most jobs now require a type of skill or higher than a high school diploma even for a low-end job. Therefore public college should be free because education will benefit the nation, increase skills to fill jobs, and increase college-educated citizens.

Free college would benefit our nation with better jobs and higher pay. College attendance levels are low due to the cost of tuition if we as people need the education to obtain jobs, why is it so expensive? With tuition steadily rising it’s putting citizens out of reach of an education that is needed in order to have a substantial living. Even some minimum wage jobs are now wanting workers with more than just a high school diploma or G.E.D. “A high school degree does not adequately prepare people for success in today’s high tech economy”(Scholastic ). This is why public college should at least be free. People would greatly benefit from this and have some hope of maintaining a good job. With a free college program in place, there would be less discouraged citizens of America in seek of a postsecondary education.

Without paying upfront

America is at stake if its citizens aren’t educated, they will eventually be tossed away into low-income situations and struggling to make it day to day. Graduating with high student loans would mean being forced to pay them your whole life, No one wants to be stuck in debt and paying for the rest of their lives. “Since the 1970s, tuition and fees at public institutions have increased by more than 350 percent, while pay for working–and middle-class households have stagnated”( Warren, Sonti). “As an outcome of the cost of public-college education is now accounts for almost 15 percent of the average family’s annual income, the total student loan obligations exceed $1 trillion and some are still counting to rise”(Warren, Sonti).

Not only would free college benefit the nation but it will increase skills to fill jobs. There are current skill gaps that need to be filled in our country. Public colleges are essential for providing workers with skills, especially for jobs that require some post-secondary technical education and/or on the job learning. Public college being free would be a great head start to learning the required skills needed to perform the jobs. The economy needs this to help and expand the workforce. Free college is essential to those who want to make a difference. Skill training is required for almost every type of job today.

Employment today would greatly benefit from a free college program because employees would have the skills needed, this will help close skills gaps in the community and workforce. Most importantly the unemployment rate would become lower if students could retain the college education that is needed. A college education would help practice and prepare for more critical job skills. This is great and will make workers pay better. “There’s plenty of research that shows investigating in higher education generates a return on that investment as high as 10 percent annually” (Levitz). Students would be able to focus more on their studies rather than worrying about how to make enough money to fund each upcoming school term.

With free college, there will be an increase in the more college-educated citizen. More college-educated citizens are Tremendous to the community and well being of the future. A better-educated population could result in smarter decision making at every level of society, which could lead to faster progress in solving our most difficult challenges. The former president “Barack Obama has proposed a new federal-state partnership grant program that would make two years of community college free“ (camera). It is great that he was aboard with the idea of free college. That goes to show there is still hope for the idea and how much it would benefit America. “In the first year of the Tennessee program, 57,000 students, representing almost 90 percent of the state’s high school graduating class, applied for the program” (Camera). This program increases college-educated citizens the most efficiently. The higher the college-educated population the better outcome of obtaining knowledge and being able to keep up with the economy.

Students are in need daily of a post-secondary education. After high school it is vital that one goes on to extend their studies for the workforce, it is hard to accomplish this goal when tuition is high. More people could go to college and have a higher pay off with a free college program in place. The free college will benefit skills, educate the population and help the economy. Those that are willing to succeed will greatly appreciate free college. America is constantly growing and needs educated citizens to benefit the nation. This can be extremely helpful to students who struggle with affording college, elders who never got to start or finish their degree, and others that are trying to gain skills for the workforce.

Overall free college is a positive move in society and is a great idea. Education is the key that unlocks the door of opportunity. College should be free to everyone equally and not based on taxes or income. Taking out student loans can be very pricey and hard to pay back Causing debt. Some parents are still paying their student loans while trying to pay for there children’s as well. Finally, college should be free to better the country as a whole. It would help stop the poverty and crime. “I think we have to push to reduce the student-loan interest rate for existing debt. The most egregious thing we do to these borrowers is made the debt nondischargeable”(Levitz). The free college will keep the U.S. United.

How it works

The role of ethics in education is crucial and multifaceted, impacting educators, students, and the educational system as a whole. Ethics in education refers to the implementation of moral principles within the educational context, guiding behavior, teaching approaches, and policy making. This essay explores the significance of ethics in education, highlighting how it contributes to a positive learning environment, the development of responsible citizens, and the overall integrity of the educational system.

Moreover, the integration of ethical values in education plays a pivotal role in the development of students as responsible and moral citizens. Education is not just about imparting academic knowledge; it also involves nurturing character and ethical judgment. By integrating discussions of ethics into the curriculum and creating opportunities for students to engage in moral reasoning and ethical decision-making, educators can help students develop a strong sense of right and wrong and prepare them to navigate complex ethical issues in their personal and professional lives.

In addition to these direct impacts, promoting ethics in education also has broader societal implications. An education system that emphasizes ethical values contributes to the development of a more ethical and just society. It fosters a generation of individuals who value integrity, respect, and responsibility, which are essential for the healthy functioning of any community.

In conclusion, the importance of ethics in education cannot be overstated. It is fundamental in creating a positive learning environment, developing morally responsible individuals, maintaining the integrity of the educational system, and contributing to the betterment of society. As such, a strong commitment to ethics should be a cornerstone of educational policies and practices at all levels.

The Importance of Education

Updated 18 October 2023

Category Education ,  Life

Education has been a powerful instrument that guides the society in achieving human desires and aspirations. It is in the nature of human beings to have big dreams in life. Everyone desires to be successful and lead a prosperous lifestyle. However, a successful life is a fruit of good education. I believe in the value of education because it has the power to transform one from nothing to something. From a naïve young boy or girl to a future president, banker, pilot, accountant and computer scientist among many more successful careers. Therefore, education is the most important tool that children can inherit from their parents.

            I come from a family of educated individuals. My parents have successful careers achieved through attaining college education. My father is a banker while my mother is a dentist. As such, I come from a family that values the importance of education as the sheer driving force of the society. My parents have nurtured me to be an obedient person. They have provided me with shelter, food, clothing, happiness and most importantly, education. Since I was young, my parents taught me the importance of being the best in what I do. They advised me that education is the key to attaining a prosperous future through hard work and determination. There was a point during high school I felt I like I didn’t have time for friends, play and watching movies. I used to complain a lot and my parents helped me realize that it was only short term. I remember one discussion we had whereby my father emphasized that education requires just a small sacrifice so as to reap the fruits of hard work. Since then, I have been determined to be a scholar who is result oriented. Parents play a big role in parenting and in the educational achievement of their children. Ben Carson, a renowned neurosurgeon came from a humble background. His mother made sure that Ben and his sibling read two books during their free time and submit a written book report to their mother for marking. His mother also regulated time spent watching TV to two or three episodes and emphasized the importance of education. Ben’s mother also provided them with spiritual and emotional support to overcome challenges. To this day, Ben Carson thanks his mother for his success and for her strong belief in the value of education (Carson, 2005). With this note, parents are important figures in a child’s life and they can determine the success or failure of their children. My parents also pressure me to succeed academically and in the future because they believe in the transforming power of education.

            I believe in the value of education because it is a tool that nurtures skills and imparts knowledge in the community. Education has given me the necessary knowledge and skills that relate to peaceful coexistence with people. Through education, I am not blinded by the differences in people in terms of race, ethnicity, color, culture, and religion. Rather, I appreciate diversity in the human race knowing that we are all equal and deserve fair treatment. Education has given me the power to avoid bias and prejudice. For instance, the society uses stereotypes to judge people. Muslims or people of Arabic descent are seeing as terrorists while blacks and Hispanics are seen as criminals. Due to my educational background, I can separate chaff from wheat by noting criminal elements in the society but I cannot conclude that the ethnicity they come from is violent or otherwise criminals. Education has opened up my mind and the belief in possibilities. I was taught that we can be anything we aspire to be as long as we put effort and work towards our dreams. Education has become an essential component of human life because there are endless opportunities with proper education. School attendance opens up doors for academic excellence as well as economic success.  As a result, I value the power of education because it can take a person to places never envisioned. On the other hand, I have firsthand experience in the suffering experienced by most uneducated people. One of my cousins dropped out of high school during his teenage years. My cousin was a football player and usually hanged out with the “cool” kids who were perceived as more successful in their social groups. However, most of these students were disobedient, naughty and engaged in drugs and alcohol. Unfortunately for my cousin, excessive partying took a toll on him that he dropped his academic score. To make the matter worse, he could not attain the score to be enlisted for full scholarship for college as a football player. He was dropped out of the high school team and frustrations led to his school dropout. He could not find a decent job and once he found a job, the pay was not sustainable. He has endured a lot until recently when he decided to go back to school because he realized his childhood dreams cannot be achieved with proper education. Similarly, during high school, Ben Carson as a teenager went from being an A student to a C student due to peer influence and nagged his mother that he wanted Italian shirts to be as cool as his colleagues. After being given an opportunity to manage the household expenses, Ben realized that his mother was a genius because she managed to give them a decent lifestyle. Ben focused more on education and excelled from a C score to an A and finally he studied medicine (Carson, 2005). His experience as well as that of my cousin motivates me to perform incredibly well academically, so that I can benefit from the life skills offered by education. Therefore, I do not take education lightly for I know through education, my dreams are valid.

            In summation, I believe in the value of education in the society. It is the key to a functional and productive society. Education is an instrument towards a successful career and a fulfilling lifestyle. Without education, I would have made it this far. Education has given me the knowledge and skills to be a productive member of the society. As such, education is life.

Stop Corporatizing My Students

Mortarboards with tassels lie on the grass.

By Beth Ann Fennelly

Ms. Fennelly, a former poet laureate of Mississippi, teaches at the University of Mississippi.

I have taught creative writing at Mississippi’s flagship university for over 20 years, and I’ve witnessed a powerful outcome: Students who master written and spoken communication can change the world.

Which is why the educational trend focusing on student outcomes is so alarming. In September, Mississippi’s state auditor, Shad White, published a report, “ Plugging the Brain Drain: Investing in College Majors That Actually Work .” It notes that many students are likely to leave our state after completing their educations, presumably for more exciting opportunities elsewhere. Mr. White proposes tying educational investments to majors that dovetail with workplace needs in Mississippi.

He cited a Texas bill signed into law in June that overhauls how the state funds its community colleges. Money for those colleges in Texas is now allotted based on student outcomes that prepare them for the work force. Mr. White said the Mississippi Legislature should create a study committee of work force experts to outline the most- and least-needed programs and design a university funding structure with the state’s work force and economy in mind.

It’s worth noting that nowhere in the eight-page report is educational value discussed in relation to anything other than money. I wonder what value he’d ascribe to John Keats’ “Ode on a Grecian Urn .”

In social media posts, Mr. White dismissed fields like African American studies, gender studies and anthropology as “useless degrees” in “garbage fields.” Instead, in the report, he recommends that students enter fields like construction management.

See how efficiently students in the poorest state are shunted toward the vocational: It’s not personal. It’s business. This, despite a study by the American Academy of Arts and Sciences that found that humanities majors are comparably likely to be satisfied with their jobs and employed in supervisory roles as graduates from other majors.

The report is unsettling because we’ve seen universities around the country enact budget cuts that have reduced humanities offerings.

In August, West Virginia University proposed cutting academic majors and programs, in a bid to reduce the budget shortfall caused in large part by declining enrollment. The process, as outlined on the provost’s website , seeks to create “a more focused academic program portfolio aligned with student demand, career opportunities and market trends.”

Consider the terms the provost used: trends, market, demand, portfolio, metrics.

Despite an outcry from students, professors and alumni, the university’s board of governors voted to slash 28 academic majors and 143 faculty positions in September. While humanities wasn’t the only area of study to take a hit , programs or majors in fields like creative writing, world languages and music were among those initially flagged for discontinuation.

Last year, the University of North Carolina, Greensboro, contracted with rpk Group , the consulting firm that has worked on West Virginia University’s restructuring, to devise an academic program review in the face of declining enrollment and changes in state funding. Its website asserts that “innovation disconnected from the business model is not sustainable.”

Reducing education to a business model changes what, and who, gets taught. Framing students as entry-level employees emboldens this nudge toward the vocational. But students need a wide horizon to explore, dream, try, fail, try harder, fail better. They need, if you will, to be useless — for a while, anyway.

It’s true that a great majority of my students won’t go on to be writers, but they will go on to be readers who, through literature, educate themselves cognitively, emotionally and spiritually. They’ll leave my classroom prepared to think critically, to consider another’s perspective and muster empathy and to recognize fake news, fearmongering and demagogy.

Maybe that’s why the Shad Whites out there seem so keen to thwart my students working toward “useless” degrees. After all, they can detect faulty reasoning faster than a sneeze through a screen door. So let me suggest that higher education administrators jettison the corporatese. My students’ degrees are high value only if they’ve reason to value them highly. My campus is not your corporation. My classroom is not your boardroom.

And should you need help choosing apt metaphors, check out a creative writing class, maybe even one at West Virginia University, where, happily, such classes still exist. Or perhaps one at the University of North Carolina, Greensboro, where an outside consultant hired by the university’s chapter of the American Association of University Professors has reported that the university “is in solid financial condition” and that instead of cutting academic programs, it might do better to trim bloated administrative costs. (The university disputed the accuracy of this report.)

As for Mr. White, he’s welcome to audit my creative writing class, though he might have some catching up to do. My students happen to be pretty great, not least because they have “traveled in the realms of gold,” to quote Keats — a quote that doesn’t mean what Mr. White might hope it means, that they’ve entered the construction management field. It means they’ve read a lot of good books.

A Free-Speech Fix for Our Divided Campuses

Clashes over the israel-hamas war show that, for the sake of american democracy, college students need to be taught how to disagree without fear or hatred..

Clashing demonstrations on U.S. college campuses over the Israel-Hamas war included dueling events at Brooklyn College, Oct. 12.

Listen to article

(12 minutes)

The Israel-Hamas war has created a crisis of protest and confrontation on American campuses. At Cooper Union in New York, pro-Palestinian student demonstrators pounded on the door of a library as fearful Jewish classmates sheltered inside. A Cornell undergraduate used a campus website to post threats to attack the school’s center for Jewish life. At Harvard, students who signed letters blaming Israel for Hamas’s attack saw their names emblazoned on a truck in Harvard Square and posted on websites in an effort to hurt their chances with potential employers. Both Brandeis and Columbia have taken steps to penalize pro-Palestinian student groups for activity they argue violates university policies, prompting charges that they are selectively suppressing activism.

As the conflict continues in the Middle East, college students are alternately emboldened and alarmed, faculty are at loggerheads, donors are irate, and college presidents are embattled. But the crisis presents an opportunity. Amid the turmoil, there is a chance to ask how our campuses reached this point and, more important, what they can do to become places where differences of background and viewpoint serve as catalysts for understanding and growth rather than for tribalism and conflict.
