Education is learning what you didn’t even know you didn’t know. – Daniel J. Boorstin
Education is a tool that we should never play with; it is like a lamp that gets one’s mind out of darkness. I always pity parents that believe there is no value in education. Some have even concluded that education is valueless. This is like saying you prefer darkness to light or staying in the world of unknown instead of being in the world of known. They have forgotten that “A child without education, is like a bird without wings – Tibelan proverb” This is like saying you prefer darkness to light or staying in the world of unknown instead of being in the world of known. There is always a joy in your heart when you know what you needed to know. There is no substitute for a heart that is well educated.
There is a level of personal fulfillment when you unlock what baffles understanding and cannot be explained. When this is done, you will know that you have enlightened your mind and the mind of those that are willing to receive from you. I believe everyone is in the quest of knowing, that is why we should not joke with education.
The value for education has eaten some people to the extent that they say take away my money but don’t take away education. They believe with education money will eventually come back. It is not about money, it is all about right education.” A man informed is a man reformed-Bolarinwa”
It is worthy to note that right education is my focus in this article. A right education adds value to your life and to people around you. J.F. Kennedy said “A child miseducated is a child lost”. I am not talking about education that is self-destructive but a right education that will bring about a transform and better your life.
I will like to drop this with some students that feel they aren’t doing well academically. Confucius said “It doesn’t matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop”. You can be great academically if you don’t stop.
