Education is the single most important factor in
the development of a country
Many years ago, one great scholar Voltaire said "All the known world, excepting only savage nations, is governed by books." Education is important of country’s development, but are it is the single most important?
Just as the saying goes: "so many people, so many minds". It is quite understandable that views on this issue vary from person to person. So this essay will discuss the advantages of education in the development of a country.
Some people are of the opinion that education isn’t the single most important factor in the development of a country. They firmly believe that we have other important things in the development of county.
Developing economy is a primary task for a country. Economic factors
determine the progress which a society can make. If a country only
focuses the development of education, it won’t have much progress.
2. A stable environment
Without a stable environment, we can accomplish nothing and may
even lose what we have gained. We need a stable political
environment in which to develop our country. The development of
education it won’t have much development if the country remains
in the war too long.
3. A good leader
It’s not the main cause of development, but it’s also important for
country’s development. Without correct leadership, the enthusiasm
of the masses cannot be sustained. A good leader who has a great
foresight and plans for the future can turn back the powers of
These are arguments in favour of this contention. However, there are a large number of people who hold a different view concerning this case. They agree that education is the key to development of country.
1. Science and technology are No.1 productive forces.
How to make the progress of a country? In history, or at present, if
the nations aspire for development that the first step is develop
education. "Knowledge is power", a slogan by Francis Bacon of 400
years ago has turned into reality. Knowledge has become the main
motive force and source of the global economic development and
High-quality professionals are the most important factor in
2. Education can make social tranquility
Education has two types: cultural education and quality education.
Cultural education can improve people’s literary training and social
scientific knowledge; Quality education can teach people to have a
good social moral values. If all people of a country have a good social
moral values, crime won’t on the rise. They all can get a good job if
they have a good cultural education.
3. Education can deliver people from ignorance
We are a cleanly white paper when we born, we know nothing about
the word. When we go to school, we start learning. Slowly, we start
to understand about literature、social and cosmic intelligence.
Everything starts here. People can’t without education. The president
also needs education first, then he can leader his people.
As far as I am concerned, I am inclined to be on the side of the latter view. There are numerous reasons why education is the single most important factor in the development of a country, and I would like to explore a few of the most important ones here.
One of the reasons that are given for it is that education can advance quality of the people. Wisdom is to the mind what health is to the body. We all know the Africa. Africa is abundant in minerals. However, there are most countries are very poor. Why is there such a phenomenon? I think that their
illiteracy rates are high. If the people don’t study that how do they know to
work? Moreover people who have well education will conduce to developing the country. They can get a good job and they can give their children a good education when they become parents.
There is another factor that deserves some words here. Education can stimulate the development of the high-tech. Today, Technology permeates the whole of our lives. Which country has the best technology that they can make the most money. For example, in the United States, in 2010, the local government's fiscal expenditure is $ 18,000 billion USD; the gross expenditure on education is well above 692 billion USD, which is approximately 37% of the Government's gross expenditure. America is a super power. It have the best universities, they are teach and R&D the latest technology. Without these universities American won’t be a super power.
Most important of all, some people agree that the progress of a country is not only to education. Development of a country has some time to do with its economy. However, if the development of economy without a good worker and high-tech, it won't has a substantial growth。
In summary, education is the step one of the development of country, everything from here and start here. From above, we can predict that a country want a substantial growth should has a good project of education. But at the same time, we should develop production and bring about prosperous economy, laying a good foundation for education. They not only oppose each other but also complement each other. It is only with such determination could the country trigger off the undreamt-of developments and the people enjoy better living.
