The Importance of Education
Henry Peter Brougham said it perfectly, “Education makes a people easy to lead, but difficult to drive; easy to govern, but impossible to enslave.” It is for this very fact that we have to be educated. History would tell us how our forefathers were maltreated by different colonizers because they were ignorant. You see, people can take advantage of the less educated because it’s easy to fool them. However, it was a great thing for us Filipinos because we were able to recover and evolve – from having been called ignorant and dumb, we were able to prove to the world that we are intelligent and talented people.
Getting Access to Quality Education
While education can be formal or informal, yet we have to understand that Quality education is something we cannot just find anywhere. For formal education, it has to take place in an institution that is capable of offering it. One that has the characteristics of being a good school or a good university which include:
- Qualified teachers and professors – This is the first consideration of a student in choosing the school where to study. It follows that education in a good university comes at an equally good cost because they need to hire highly qualified and expert professionals.
- Good infrastructure – a good university has well-built premises with well-equipped classrooms, restrooms, learning centers, libraries and eateries.
- Understanding and able management – The management should be good enough at answering the needs of the students.
