According to Liberal perspective, education encourages a child to develop his mental, physical, emotional and spiritual talents to the full. No any society can make progress if its people are strangulated by ignorance.
In fact, a society never grows bigger than the knowledge of its members. The more you destroy educational system, the more you fade away the equality of opportunity in the society. Education is what rises someone above his or her condition of birth.
However, if a country wants to get the children of poor poorer than their parents, it withdraws quality education in the society. In fact, it’s the fastest agent of social stratification. With knowledge, a poor child often changes his social class.
Biologically, it’s a privilege to survive for 3 months after your birth, and also, it’s a right to have an atmosphere of learning as a citizen of a country. Thus, it’s a recipe for national progress to invest in education. The best thing to do is to invest in knowledge and productivity. Nobody doubts about that.
May we see the best in Nigeria.
