Education has been the foundation of the modern age world because of the need to educate the youth of the world. Countries that live in poverty have no affordable education system or an education system at all. By making education free for everyone then society can move together as one instead of competing country to country to see which one is able to advance faster. Education is the main tool and way for progress. Thus if a country wants to ensure its future it has to fully ensure that the majority of children have access to education. The main way it can do that is by providing free education for them.
People with basic knowledge have proven that they have more tools and competences to face the problems of their lives. Therefore, the government wants to avoid supporting them as much as it can; it has to ensure that it allows them to become independent adults capable of solving their day to day problems, or they will become dependent on the government. The government should, in-fact place enough investment in its citizens that would be important for developing the nation. A basic education will invite individuals to curiosity. This type of curiosity will provoke problem solving for basic and then advanced issues. Building and solving problems will create more opportunities for learning, building and growing.
If the government helps their citizens with providing education it will increase economic growth and there will be more money in the education, health and other sectors. Having more money in the Health care system will improve and extend quality of life. This will in turn make better workers and more productive workers. Birth rate can increase and by extension, the population. having more money, and more healthy persons and better technology can catapult a small country into the mainstream. The small change of free basic education can cause a ripple of positive effects.
Education also provides critical and progressive ways of thinking to individuals. Therefore if a country looks to become better in every way in time. It has to provide its citizens with the tools to achieve it. The country will benefit from it indirectly. But it will be its best option. As countries like South Korea, Singapore, and Japan provided resources to their citizens to improve and they improved their countries.
By making education free for everyone, society can move forward together as one. Education is a basic right which everyone deserves. It is the main tool and way for progress. The ability for persons to learn and grasp concepts should not be dependent on their socio-economics or location. Not only that education is a basic right and need, education empowers a nation. I urge you to see that it is time to fight for our right to education, our government needs to provide it without charge to their citizens.
