Education is really important to one’s life, it is because without education one’s life is not that good. A person who is educated will be having a good life. He can easily land a job after schooling. He could be having a good type of job because he finished his studies or he is educated. On the other hand, if you are not able to finish your studies, it could be difficult for you to have a good or stable job in the future. You could have a very tiresome job compared to those who are educated.        It has been said that “Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself” and “Education is the key to success in life” so everybody must give proper importance to education.

We are the architects of our own future. We are the captains of our own lives. What you will become in the future is the sum of what you have done at present. One way to become successful is through education. Education is the process of receiving or giving systematic instruction. It involves the acquisition of knowledge and learning of skills. It provides a contributory characteristic which helps to maintain and adapt society and its values.

Article XIV, Section 1 of the Philippine Constitution clearly states that the state shall protect and promote the right of all citizens in our country to quality education at all levels and shall take appropriate steps to make such education accessible to all. The government of our country has been doing its part since the beginning. Our government officials since then are doing their best in order to provide quality education to all Filipinos. This is evident with the government’s program EFA or Education For All.

John Dewey once said “Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.” It means, education is a lifetime process with no true beginning or ending and which really lasts for the whole life. It is through education that you can change the face of the world. More than that life is the best teacher we might ever have. People learn more effectively through their own actions and mistakes. Life teaches us. That is why, we consider life to be the best teacher.

According to Solomon Ortiz, “Education is the key to success in life.” Education
plays a significant role in designing our future as a successful person in life. Man becomes “man” through education. He is really what education makes him. Without education, man is absolutely nothing. He is a slave or a savage without education. Education liberates man from ignorance. Education frees man from slavery and savagery. It is also clear that no person can open the doors of opportunities and success in life without being educated. It is because education equips man with knowledge and skills that he can use in achieving success in life.

Education is important. It is the greatest equalizer in life. It gives us knowledge of the world around us and changes it into something better. It lays the foundation of our future and it really plays a great role in our career growth as well as in the personal growth. It is indeed an instrument for prosperity and refuge in adversity. So, education is definitely important to people of all ages.

Education is not received. It is achieved. Education is not filling of pail, but it is the lighting of a fire. It is just like a lighted torch that gives light to our life and guides us in achieving our dreams and aspirations for us to become successful in the future. That is why, it is really necessary to study hard and to educate ourselves. Remember that people will not make difference between right and wrong until they are educated. We may learn the true essence of education, that is, to know the good from the bad, the truth from the falsity and we may prefer the good and the truth.

Education should be given proper importance by everybody. It is the only thing that parents can give to their children that cannot be shared or given to anybody. It cannot be stolen also by anybody. It is only yours for the rest of your life. Education should not be taken for granted. It is simply because education is beneficial to everybody. If you are educated, your life will be successful. Remember, education is useful, education is essential, education is life.
