Every single one of us has something that is good at and has something to offer. Through our life we have a responsibility tot discover what that is. That is the opportunity an education can provide.Maybe one could be a great writer, maybe an innovator, an inventor or even a mayor, but you might not know that until you join student environment and understand that you need an education to do it. You are going to need a good education for every single one of those careers.
A successful and developed nation is based on bright minded, skillful and wise people. A person cannot drop out of school and just drop into a good job. One gets to train for it and work for it and learn for it.
This is not just important for our own life and our own future. What we make of our education will decide nothing less than the future of the country we live. The future and the prosperity of the nation depend on us.
What we are learning in school today will determine whether we as a nation can meet our greatest challenges in the future. The more educated and cultured people there are in the country the more flourishing and thrifty the country is.
As for example, we can take Japan, which after the World War II reformed its educational system with reference to the American one. Up till now, Japan has one of the best educated people. The Japanese control individual responsibility by observing the group rules, which include the insights and critical thinking skills, social studies to fight poverty and homelessness, crime and discrimination, and other measures that make the nation more fair and more free.
That is why we have to set our own goals for our education and do everything we can to meet them. Our goal can be something as simple as doing all your homework, paying attention in class, or spending some time each day reading a book. Maybe we will decide to take better care of ourselves so we can be more ready to learn and become educated.
