Heyy friends!

I just saw a Telly Buzz article on education and it got me thinking.

Education is the most important thing in the development of a child, but also in the development of a country. Through education, a country can move forward and progress in the world.

If the education in India was focused on, our country would be on the top and able to provide a better life for its population.


At the moment: the average literacy rate: 64.8% - meaning only 648 out of 1000 people in India know how to read and write.

And already India has the third largest Gross Domestic Product (a way of measuring the size of an economy).

India also has one of the fastest growing economies in the world, with a growth rate of 9.4% (2006-7)!

So imagine what India could achieve if education levels were increased!


What are your thoughts on this?

Do you agree? Or do you feel there are other factors more important?

Please feel free to discuss and share your thoughts!

Yes I feel education is very important. It opens a lot of doors for you in life and with a good education you can get very far in life Big smile It also makes you more recognisable as a person with a good education background and increases chances of employability.

It also makes you a better person and makes you more knowledgeable about the world Approve Big smile

You only get one chance to be educated so why waste it? Tongue

Yeah I agree.

Education is very important in life. Most young people don't realize how important it is. That's because you don't really see the benefit of a good education until later in life. :)
