The Importance of Access to Education

I have always complained about school being difficult, since elementary school. However, sometimes I forget to remind myself of the privilege I have to have an education.

After volunteering and tutoring students from different backgrounds and who live in other living circumstances, I have had a different perspective on education and its importance. Every child deserves to have the right to education, no matter the circumstances. 

Educating communities means developing schools that will educate children and create the leaders of tomorrow. As a result of better education in lower-status and rural communities, will lead to systematic changes on multiple levels and allow for better opportunities for these children to break generational curses.

Education can help provide a lot of information that is not known and helps prevent the misinterpretation of information. Education is important because it can lead to many positive outcomes, such as learning and understanding more about policies, governments, available benefits, etc.

Education is especially important for girls because girls’ education can transform communities, countries, and the entire world. Girls’ education strengthens economies and reduces inequality. Over 129 million girls are out of school currently around the world. Girls’ education is essential for future generations since children of educated mothers are much more likely to go to school than mothers with little or no education.

There are several ways low-status communities and rural communities can improve their access to education. A parent’s investment in education is crucial for the success of their children. Giving parents information on the value of education will be essential to increasing and maintaining school enrollment.

Computer technology will improve education in developing countries and enhance the educational experience of both students and teachers. The computers should have age-appropriate learning software and a technically educated staff that knows how to maintain them. 

Providing food during school will alleviate these children’s hunger during class and encourage school attendance. Education plays a low critical role in lower status and rural communities since it helps develop the people of the rural area.

With education, there is always a bright future for children in these communities.
