Education Is A Right

Education is imperative, if you wish to make the most of your life. And I think that everyone ought to have equal opportunities to grow and foster their own abilities.

Gone are the days when education was a luxury, affordable only to the wealthy. Although there are people who still harbour the archaic belief that education ought to be available only to the 'financially elite', there are now a variety of educational facilities which cater for every socioeconomic group. I love that - I love that educators have the opportunity to reach people who might otherwise have been left to slave in go-nowhere jobs forever; people who would otherwise have not had an education, and who would never have had the opportunity for personal development.

I don't think that anyone deserves to wallow in ignorance, not when they have the desire to extricate themselves. Education is a fundamental right, something which ought to be granted to every willing person, no matter where they fall on the social scale. It angers me that some people are being deprived of an education (especially in the poorer countries) just so that others can benefit from their ignorance - grr.

Wouldn't it be great if everyone had education which would lead to a job that they loved doing. I was lucky that I got a job as an engineer doing work that I though was valuable to the country. Think how had it would be to get up every morning and go to a job that you don't like.
