Human rights are rights that are essential to all human beings, regardless of their language, religion or sex. Human rights include the right to life, right to work, right to speech, right to education and many more. Each one has these fundamental rights, without any discrimination. The right to education is a basic human right of every one. It deals with the right to know and have a chance at changing your way of living.
Education is all about learning new skills and gaining knowledge. It develops one’s personality and sense of humour. It helps us build our opinions and have a point of view on things in life. Education makes us capable of interpreting things around us, and not just about learning life lesson.
Without education, we cannot progress in life. Without education, we will not be able to explore new ideas, which means we will be not able to develop new innovations because without ideas, there is no creativity and without creativity, there is no development. A country which is more developed has more educated people than a country with less education and development level.
Our system is such that rich students get more and more educated while the poor end up remaining uneducated. Nowadays, getting an education has become more costly, so much so that poor parents of even the most talented students cannot think of getting their wards admitted into most educational institutes.
We need a system that will provide equal opportunities to both rich and poor students and contribute to the development of the country. For a country to evolve, we need education that can make the country more developed. It has been rightly said by Carl Rogers: “The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.”
An educated person is prepared for life and challenges that come with their way. Uneducated people are lost in their own world, unable to communicate with people because of their lack of knowledge. One should get an education in such a way that they are able to give birth to inventions that solve problems and make our lives easier and comfortable.
If we compare the life of an educated and uneducated person, both are different in every aspect. A majority of educated people will have a well-paying job and phenomenal career. For them, every day will be a welcoming challenge towards self-improvement. Educated people are more likely to get opportunities to go on trips and campaigns, whereas uneducated people might never get those opportunities.
Thus, the right to education should be available to everyone so that they have a chance at making their lives better, which in turn can make a family, society, state and country better and help in development as human resource is one of the most important resources one can use in the development of a nation. The right to education is like opening the door towards light; the light that can change one’s life; that makes one a human being; that closes the doors of darkness, that, when falls upon anyone, gives a way to them to live a brighter life that gives power to make others live the same way.
Thus, we can safely conclude that the right to education is one of the most beneficial rights that a country can offer to its citizens.
