“The more that you read, the more things you will know, the more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”—Dr. Seuss
Education isn’t just about learning maths or science at school. It’s about getting the knowledge and the skills needed to better ourselves and the world we live in. It is a critical investment that gives the highest returns. In this competitive world having a good education is vital because it is a weapon to conquer the complex world.
Education assists an individual to survive in this world, by making them self-dependent and sufficient. It is fundamental to economic development and growth because one educated person educates several others, so the sharing of knowledge never ends, it is indeed a circular flow.
Education is further just learning how to read and write. Education helps us to build up personally, professionally, and socially. It also helps us become better genres of ourselves. And it broadens our perspectives to aid us learn about different societies and cultures.
Insight into Education and Knowledge
Education is curriculum and time based, but knowledge is gained from experiences and is limitless. The periphery of education is very limited but knowledge has no boundaries, for it, the world is a school.
- Education is the process of obtaining knowledge through formal institutions like schools, colleges, universities, etc., while knowledge is a lifelong learning process.

- The periphery of education is very limited but knowledge has no boundaries, for it, the world is a school. It is something that is changeable and cannot be standardized in any manner.
However, I believe that education is incomplete without knowledge, that it goes hand in hand, and only together, it leads to the enlightenment and upliftment of mankind as it brings into action the potential in a man. It shapes an individual’s true character and makes them who they are. Hence, it should be ubiquitous and boundless, as it can be acquired from anywhere and everywhere; from places, people, experiences, failures, accidents, the environment, etc. It has the ability to bring a person from darkness to light.
Why Educate? How can it rule the world?
Education helps in ruling the world, it gives an individual an edge in life. It gives power to the people, helps them improve their decision-making capabilities, makes them more mobile, and gives them access to social networks, altogether helping them prosper in their lives.
“Education is the key to eliminating gender inequality, to reducing poverty, to creating a sustainable planet, to preventing needless deaths and illness, and to fostering peace”. And in a knowledge economy, education is the new currency by which nations support economic competitiveness and global prosperity.
The UN’s Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) of providing universal primary education to all and eliminating gender inequities, has propelled many nations and multi-governmental organizations to uplift educational spending. Therefore, it is fundamental to economic development and growth.
Education is the foundation of peace and prosperity
To achieve our objective the Foundation for Peace and Prosperity identifies communities that are in need of assistance with regards to basic education i.e. food, study material, educational supplies, medication, and social and community development projects. Thereafter, the Foundation starts off programs that will provide for these needs and therefore improve the quality of the beneficiaries’ lives and their quality to further develop individually. The introduction and running of these programs are observed on an ongoing basis to ensure success.
Education can be the most effective tool to tackle large-scale poverty entrenched in various parts of India. Children who receive holistically and quality education are enabled and empowered to grow up into mature, skilled, and qualified adults who are eligible for picking up employment or launch their own enterprise.

when it comes to voting, educated people have enough knowledge to carefully choose the candidate. One will know what to consider in choosing the right candidate to serve and protect our country. One will be able to recognize the social issues that the country is facing and will be capable to help in their own way.
Considering all the above benefits, it is apparent that education acts as a key element that charges the development of an economy and the world as a whole.
It is not the one and only factor that can rule the world rather it can help a person rule the world in a right and an ethical manner.
