The Importance Of Higher Education - Is Higher Education Worthwhile?

“After all, what is education but a process by which a person begins to learn how to learn?”

The word origin of the word Education is Latin. Education means the knowledge and skills that one gains from being taught. Providing informative experience, education leads one to acquire knowledge through learning process. Being the most profound and significant of all the facts that influence one in his individual life, education pays off well in the affairs of his everyday living. Basically, education as a whole helps individual to grow and develop from within while improving his thinking and reasoning process and showing the way to become acquainted with his potentials whereby he can be more independent and more self-confident

to make careful judgments and so to live life satisfactorily.

As education is an informative experience, it is to be considered as ongoing process of acquiring knowledge through learning. If a person gains more knowledge, he can possess more awareness and intelligence.

The more an individual becomes educated, the more he has general awareness and the more he is in possession of information, facts and ideas and truths and principles. Education is also included in the sources, such as, age and experience that bestow the wisdom upon a person. It thus must be borne in mind that the expansion of higher education is a powerful force for change and development. It may be rightly said that gaining higher education is gaining higher skills. The more it's acquired, the greater advantages it brings in some or the other gratifying form - without going in vain at all.

Higher education has a lot to do with the way of higher wisdom and professional development with rich experience. Evidence that the modern world we live in has surpassed all the ages can be found when we see the numerous benefits of science and technologies that have made obsolete the traditional kinds of activities. They are nothing but the boon of higher learning and knowledge.

Although seeing the

social status and standard of living of business persons, entrepreneurs, industrialists or the people who are well-off, one may think for a while that possessing plenty of money is a matter of destiny, but soon he must be satisfied with this convincing evidence that in order to keep the status remained and to sustain the whole business and its functioning state, there are hands of highly educated and highly skilled people behind the whole process and success. In this way, higher learning becomes the source and the higher learning is attained by higher education.

It is not necessary that each and every job requires higher degrees or higher education, but there prevails a common understanding that in order to execute particular job, a candidate should have Post graduate degree. It is to be seen in the fact that the curriculum or the syllabus is designed as per the degrees. The higher the academic degrees, the higher the syllabus and more advanced curriculum. In this way, higher education is the requirement. It is assumed that a highly qualified candidate whose concepts are well developed, can handle even more advanced tasks and as such one must try to upgrade his knowledge and experience through higher learning that is attained on the basis of higher education. It can thus be said that attaining higher degrees means being more capable to execute more advanced and complicated tasks.
