Not every child thinks of school as a fun place. However, all that homework does pay off. You wouldn’t be reading this now unless someone taught you how to read; the chances are good that you learned how to read in a school. Education means more than just learning one’s ABCs. It is necessary for social and economic development. In the developing world many children have to stop their schooling due to financial concerns of their family. Children regularly help out at home or have jobs themselves to help their families earn money. This means that these potential students are not in class. Rural areas throughout the world have fewer schools.
This means that it is harder to find an available school that has proper learning resources. Currently rural areas are generally not as educated as urban areas, which creates an educational divide between rural and urban areas. This divide furthers the gap between urban and rural wealth.
Without a proper education, children and families will have trouble getting out of this circle of poverty. Some students cannot afford the school fees for uniforms, books, supplies, and other indirect costs that are hindrances to attending school. This is true for both rural and urban areas. Governments should waive these fees so more people can afford to go to school. Universal primary education has to be accessible. This means schools must receive an equal distribution of funding regardless of geographic or socioeconomic locations. Poorer people and places should not be treated differently.
Oxfam Quebec and the Canadian Commission for UNESCO are two organizations advocating the necessity of education for all in Canada. Youth voice their opinions and contribute in both organizations.
Education is fundamental for development and countries around the world need to embrace this in order to develop. Developed nations can help developing ones by cutting debt repayments. Oxfam points out that Zambia had to cut their education budget in order to qualify for another round of funding from the IMF. The better educated a country is, the easier it is to develop economically.
Even when nations have supported education, it is harder for certain segments of the population to get access to schools. In the developing world more boys attend schools than girls, with Western and Southern Asia having the biggest discrepancy. Without equal education for all, gender equality will be harder to attain.
Education is a first step for any nation towards success.I want to appeal to the Gilgit Government to start scholarship system for the young talent in the field of education and support new generation for better future of Gilgitin future.
Education is the first step towards the betterment of any society. So, there will be any educational society in Gilgit
which should be work in the field of education.
