ED­U­CA­TION: A FOUN­DA­TION OF DE­VEL­OP­MENT

Sun.Star Pampanga - - PERSPECTIVE! -

ME­LANIE D. TAN

As we go to school, we learn so much from our teach­ers. They share to us not only knowl­edge and skills but the at­tributes of be­com­ing a good in­di­vid­ual. This means we do not only learn how to count, we do not only learn how to spell a word, we do not only learn how to pro­nounce it, or how to make a com­plete sen­tence, we im­prove as the years pass by. Im­prove­ment in this mat­ter is not only lim­ited to aca­demics but more­over for the universal de­vel­op­ment of ev­ery­body and even­tu­ally ev­ery­thing around us.

As in­di­vid­u­als, we all have abil­i­ties. These abil­i­ties can be­come our great­est as­sets wherein sooner or later, when we have reached the max­i­mum ca­pac­ity of our ca­pa­bil­i­ties, we can ful­fill the great­est task that we want to ac­com­plish. That is mak­ing our nation great. This is done by strength­en­ing each and ev­ery one through ed­u­ca­tion for the com­plete ben­e­fit our coun­try.

Be­ing in­tel­li­gent and know­ing a lot of things is not enough. Wish­ing and hop­ing is not enough. Even if we have all the positive at­ti­tude but without do­ing any­thing, it is never enough. We must ap­ply what we have learned from the ed­u­ca­tion that was shared to us. We must act in or­der to show that as in­di­vid­u­als who have un­der­gone years of learn­ing and train­ing in school and ul­ti­mately, we have de­vel­oped the best per­son that we can be through ed­u­ca­tion.

Ed­u­ca­tion is the only thing that could make this world a bet­ter place to live in. For when ev­ery­one else in this world has un­der­gone a proper ed­u­ca­tion, then the ap­pro­pri­ate im­prove­ment will be ev­i­dent around us. Let us al­ways keep in mind that ed­u­ca­tion is an im­por­tant part of a per­son’s life that could make him or her nur­ture a beau­ti­ful life in the fu­ture.
