Education has become one of the principle factors in the countries’ development. Many people admit that higher education is the best way to get a successful life. After graduation, university students can find a better job, improve necessary skills and contribute to the national development. The purpose of this paper is to argue that people should be required to undertake a university education.
One of the main reasons that people should go to university is that if people do not have qualifications, they will not be offered a suitable job. In fact, the managers always choose a candidate with a higher degree. The company just see the abilities of people who do not have any degrees after their probationary period. Therefore, they will not waste time and money to hire staffs who have not yet graduated. Breen (2009) states that in Korea, people who do not go to university are restricted to get a good job that they have competences to attempt. In addition, if people get higher degrees, they will get better positions with higher salary than others who do not graduate. As Potter (2006) argues, “Graduating from university is an excellent financial decision, with earnings gap between a high school and university graduate growing larger every year”. Furthermore, people have lots of chances to join in the most professional working environment after graduating. “If you are a graduate, there is always the option of looking for work overseas” (Mansoor, n.d). Mansoor also claims that people not only probably find employment but also have opportunities of working in other countries.
Next, graduates have many occasions to improve their skills and enjoy the independent life in university. In the article “The Benefits of University”, the author (2012) states that enrolling in university, people can participate in diverse activities. There are many clubs in institutions such as martial arts, sports, literature and arts and other interesting groups. Thus, students can satisfy...
...PrimaryEducation in India
The Government of India in 2001 launched the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA), a nationwide programme to provide universal primaryeducation, thereby encouraging secondary education also. The Center passed The Right to Education Act in 1 April 2010, which guarantees free and compulsory education to every child in the 6-14 age groups. But, the lack of awareness on the requirement of pre-school education & operational challenges including the availability of quality teachers are some of the issues that still limit the widespread benefits from the government act. Though the number of institutes has gone up significantly since then, but most of them provide an average education. Many state-funded schools in India lack even the basic infrastructure. In fact the quality of education, especially in remote villages, is very dismal. The quality of teaching in elementary schools is not up to the mark. Teacher absenteeism is widespread, teachers are not adequately trained and the quality of pedagogy is poor. One of the major challenges is the diminishing inclination of youth towards the teaching profession. The low salary base, lack of incentives and a lethargic job with less of dynamism have made the profession a last resort for the youth. Also, the profession has lost the level of respect that it deserved. Nowadays,...

Education in India today is nothing like it was in Pre-Independence and Post-Independence Era. Education System in India today went through a lot of changes before it emerged in its present form. Present education system in India is also guided by different objectives and goals as compared to earlier time. Present system of education in India, however is based around the policies of yesteryears. After independence, it was on 29th August 1947, that a Department of Education under the Ministry of Human Resource Development was set up. At that time the mission was the quantitative spread of education facilities. After, 1960’s the efforts were more focussed to provide qualitative education facilities. The present research focus on steps through which our indian education system had gone through. The basic moto of this research is to show that india has done serious efforts in education nd has shotremendous development but it is still lacking in comparison with developed nations. This study is an effort to suggest some measures for its improvement.
..."He who opens a school door, closes a prison." ~ Victor Hugo
The first time we are introduced to formal education is in school. The school years are the grounding years of one's education. Schools are institutions that lay the foundation of a child's development. They play a key role in developing children into responsible citizens and good human beings. It's a school where young talent is recognized and nurtured. On leaving school, we are all set to soar high in life, and enter the real world in pursuit of our dreams.
Education provides us with knowledge about the world. It paves the way for a good career. It helps build character. It leads to enlightenment. It lays the foundation of a stronger nation. Education makes a man complete. Kautilya, an Indian philosopher, royal adviser, and professor of economics and political science very rightly underlined the importance of education, some 2000 years ago. He has highlighted the fact that education enriches people's understanding of themselves. He has said that education is an investment in human capital, and it can have a great impact on a nation's growth and development.
So, Why is Education Important?
It Gives Knowledge
"An investment in knowledge pays the best interest." - Benjamin Franklin
A direct effect of education is knowledge gain. Education gives us knowledge of...
...Types of institution
Spain Higher Education institutions have been around for centuries. Spain's universities are some of the oldest institutions in the world. One of Spain's institutions was founded in the earlier years of the thirteenth century. Higher education in Spain is mainly comprised of universities. There are currently around 75 universities where there are approximately 56 state owned and 19 privateuniversities that are ran by private enterprises or by the Catholic Church. (Hampshire, 2003 p.1) Spain's higher education institutions had experienced a fast growth in student population due to a huge influx of high school graduates or "secondary school leavers. (Mora, n.d., p.1) In Spain's history the nineteenth century was a critical year because of the French Revolution and the huge impact it made on higher education institutions. One of the impacts that it made was the changing of the structure of the state. Under the Napoleonic system of higher education, adopted by Spain, the universities were entities hat were totally regulated by laws and norms by the State at a national level. (Mora, n.d, p.1) Professors were considered civil servants and they were to move from one institution to the next. All of the academic programs were unified amongst the universities and they even carried the same syllabi. "Higher...
...Topic: The Importance of a UniversityEducation
In 2010, with a population of 2.71 million, Jamaica had a tertiary enrolment ratio of 2.29. A recognized higher education institution in Jamaica is an institution offering programmes of study to students who have successfully completed secondary education. Through this, the development of Universities in Jamaica has evolved. These include several colleges anduniversities which has served a limited number of Jamaican students over the years. These included the largest campus of the University of the West Indies (UWI) and the College of Arts, Science, and Technology (CAST) today known as the University of Technology (UTECH). But are Jamaicans using this to their advantage, to manipulate the art of gaining knowledge?
Universitas magistrorum et scholarium, A community of scholars and teachers. From the initial name one can already paint a picture in their mind of what a University really is.

Like many institutions universities also doubled as places of worship and religious...
...Education and Transformation Essay
Transformative learning is the process of “using a prior interpretation to construe a new or revised interpretation of the meaning of one’s experience in order to guide future action" (Mezirow, 2003). It is also a process where “an education that is transformative redirects and reenergizes those who pause to reflect on what their lives have been and take on new purposes and perspectives” (Will McWhinney et al., 2003). Jack Mezirow’s central idea is the process “to make meaning from our experiences through reflection, critical reflection and critical self-reflection “ (Dirkx et al.,2006), Mezirow named this process perspective transformation. According to John M. Dirkx (2006) transformative learning is emotionally driven and focuses more on a deeper learning, his view suggests a more “integrated and holistic understanding of subjectivity, one that reflects the intellectual, emotional, moral and spiritual dimensions of our being in the world” (Dirkx et al.,2006). Transformative learning is a process most individuals have experienced once in their lifetime and it is a process that I can closely relate to. My personal experience of transformative learning is closely relevant to John M Dirkx emotional approach to the process and Mezirow’s Subjective Reframing (self-reflective) (Dirkx et al.,2006).To demonstrate my personal transformative learning experience, I have included my story in this essay....

Science 1 in the Early Years
Assessment: Item 1- Views of teaching and promoting science of young learners
The pedagogy of play can be hard to understand and part of the reason for this is it’s so difficult to explain how children learn by play because play isn’t simply; it is complex. Each child begins their early childhood education with a set of skills and prior knowledge that is influenced by their family, culture and past experiences (Fellows &Oakley, 2010). The past knowledge should become the foundation for developing an understanding of scientific concepts (Duschl, Schweingruber & Shouse, 2007). Children are naturally inquisitive, creative and aware of the world around them (Campbell & Jobling, 2012). Play is an important development tool and an effective way to teach children scientific concepts while using their prior knowledge (Preston, Mules, Baker & Frost, 2007). Learning science through play shows children that science is useful and enjoyable and is a significant aspect of the real world (Bulunuz, 2013). This essay will review teaching science through play, theorists who support play and the way in which the Australian curriculum and EYLF support play pedagogy.
