Why should education be less about the money and more about education?


Before we get to the heart of our topic we need to understand one thing clearly. What is education all about? “Education is ornament in prosperity and a refuge in adversity.” and “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all” ~ Aristotle.


With that under way let us begin our reasoning behind our topic. According to www.debate.org 71% said yes to more education and 29% said no to less education and more about money. Here are few reasons on why chose yes, “Education is better than money because without a good foundation, there would be no way to make good money.”, “Give a man a fish, feed him for an evening teaching a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.” And “Education is light.” On the other hand, “Money is everything.”, “If you have money, you can get almost everything in life food, clothes, shelter and also education so money is better than education.” And “You can’t live an easy, happy life only with education, whereas you can do the same without education and only money.” These two point perspectives just two altered reasons which vary from the point of understanding education itself which is understandable. Point of the matter is both education and money are always contradicting each other. In my terms of understanding on why education is needed more than money I would like you to look around and where has education taken you. a brother can speak but cannot write, a sister can draw well but cannot read, a group of friends lack more in social works but more on social media. Open your eyes my dear friends to those that fail and help those who are poor to learn more and more. Our system has been forcing us to get 90% marks but where will 90% take you in this world? Of course! They will say money is the key but for those that grew up without money they still make impactful gains more than you and I. Look at Bill Gates you all know his story, Michael Jordan, Steve jobs, etc. Look at their contribution to the world mind you they started with nothing but gave everything for us to live with, to learn and to teach.“Educating a soul is more important than to take one’s own for capital.” I want you to remember that because it will make you understand the need for education. We are in the age of change but our system is still the same how are we suppose to move on without understand where to start?


I urge you for our generation be it may you choose to be an educator or not I would like it for you to give more to education and less about the money. You will know more from deep within.
