Tycoonism “She knows what is the best purpose of education: not to be frightened by the best but to treat it as part of daily life.”

July 31, 2009

Education is not an end but an means to an end. In other words we do not educate children only for the purpose of educating them, our purpose is to fit them for life.  As soon as we realize this fact,we will understand that it is very important to choose a system of education that will really prepare children for life. It is not enough to choose the first system of education one finds,or to continue with one’s old system of education.

In many modern countries,it has for sometime been fashionable to think that by free education for all whether rich or poor clever or stupid-one can solve all the problems of society and build a perfect nation. But we can already see that free education for all is not enough,we find in many countries far large number of people with university degrees than there are jobs for them to fill. Because of their degrees they refuse to do what they think as low work, but we have only to think a moment to understand that the work of a completely uneducated farmer is far more important than that of a professor,we can live without education but we will die if we have no food. In fact,when we saythat all of us must be educated to fit us for life,it means that we must be educated in such a way that,firstly eac of us can do whatever job is suited to his brain, aptitude and ability. Secondly,that we can realize that all jobs are necassary to society, and that it is very bad to ashamed of one’s work or to scorn someone else. 

So how can we incorporate learning in the home?  I believe that learning is an opportunity that one gets every single day.  We do not stop learning and we do not stop to read every single day.  One way to encourage children is to allow them to read good educational materials.  There are libraries available if money is a problem.  There are also very good second hand books stores in the cities and the opportunities to be able to get and obtain books are endless.  One just have to use their wit and common sense to find them.

Learning has to be fun, and learning will become enjoyable to a child who has learned to accept learning and challenges at a very young age.  This is our aim and our goal as parents and once we have instill this to our children, they will cower when faced with daily challenges.
