Education is purposeful process or experience thorough which society has formative effect on minds, characters, or physical ability of each individual. In its technical sense, society deliberately transmits its accumulated knowledge, skills, and values from one generation to another.
It is impossible to become successful person without having a decent education. Education is not only a learning at school, college or university, and a process that "comes on one's heels" of man all his life from birth to old age. For example, it is impossible to become a good teacher, only to acquire knowledge in a prestigious college. In addition to pedagogical education a teacher must constantly upgrade his or her knowledge and skills for many years on the job. This suggests that the process of education must be sustained for long time.
System of formal education in almost of all countries consists of preschool, primary (or elementary), secondary and post-secondary (or higher) education. Each of the periods of education system gives to person a specific knowledge, skills and life experience. Many countries take huge attention to primary and secondary education. Governments pour huge fund into these types of education system, but on preschool education, I think, they don’t pay enough attention.
My point is that preschool education is more important for person. Because during these early years (from birth to 5 years), a human being is capable of absorbing more information at a time than they will ever be able to again. The environment of the young child influences the development of cognitive skills and emotional skills due to the rapid brain growth that occurs in the early years. Studies have shown that high quality preschools have a short and long term effect in improving the outcomes of a child, especially a disadvantaged child.
The parents are the first teacher for infant, and then the relatives, preschool teachers come to help parents in education of the child. Our life depends of how much attention, skills and knowledge we received in early childhood period. If parents, preschool teachers give more knowledge and more attention to the child, then he or she would adapt easier to the school, then a college, and make more friends during the person's life.
I have remarked only an education base, its first step- preschool education because I think that this section of education is deprived of government attention. Government should take into account this cost in the countries’ budgeting and allocating money for cost item like education.
What do you think?
Education is very important value for our society, and his fundamental place is in the early childhood. Then, during a lifetime, a person can improve or not it, depending of him/her self.
