The norms, values and the ways of doing things which form important parts of the heritage of our society are passed on from one generation to another through the process of education. Besides, education provides learners exposure to other people's cultures thereby promoting cultural assimilation. It would not have been possible to know anything about iconic people like Socrates, Aristotle, Lee Kwan Yew, Martin Luther King Jr, and Nelson Mandela, if I were not educated, taught and exposed to their lives. Yet, all their stories have impacted my life and the community at large. Thus education creates cultures by acting as a pathway for both cultural transfer and cultural
In fact, education helps one become a helpful member of society. An educated member definitely has a greater chance to contribute to their community. Education helps an individual become an active member of society and participate in ongoing changes and developments. Throughout history, different generation have impacted the world due to the importance of education shaping society. Society and education are closely bound units and consequently cannot be separated from each other.
Education is a virtue in our society. The growth and development of a successful civilization depends on an educated populace. Schools were created to serve this purpose, to educate the youth and prepare them for their professional and personal lives in the future. However, while we do learn mathematics, history, literature, and art – all of which are important skills and subjects – the real importance of school lies on a different spectrum. The most important lesson that schools teach children is the truth about society and the real world.
As Educators respecting a child’s culture is very important to us, firstly it is a way to build a child’s sense of belonging. When culture is valued child will feel more secure and develop sense of belonging to the centre and the community. It’s very essential to gain a child’s trust and show understanding and respect for his/ her cultural background because that is where they come from and it’s not going to change. Secondly including their culture will make a child feel belonged and he/ she can then make more social interactions with other child and respecting their colour, language and cultural background because everyone is not the same. If we educators show that children have a sense of belonging, children will feel more confident and build more safe relationship with everyone.
Education in our society is not necessarily followed by employment (Green, 2010). However, we are still expected to study in order to increase our chances for employment. My parents worked hard in order to be able to provide for us and to give us the ability get an education in order to get a well-paid job, so we would not struggle later in life. In my family, we were all expected to study. That in a way put pressure on me to meet the expectations my family and society had.
This influence however can be a byproduct of what those institutions are trying to achieve, it can also be intended to maintain hierarchy. Educational institutions, from elementary school all the way to colleges, tend to embody and represent the values that their respective society holds in high regard. Those educational institutions, then embody those same beliefs and try integrate them into their students. A big part of a students ' life is spent at educational institutions, especially at a young age where they accept the guidance of others around them. As Davidson explains in her essay “As we have [learned], an infant’s neural pathways are being sheared and
In the era of 21st century , life has become much more easier and advance . people now are more civilized and it all happened due to the education. So education is like a future key for every young gene like us. To get education, one has to enroll in the school , a school is a small group of society where it consist of number of students with two different type of gender, male and female. People do have a notion that boys and girls should study in different school rather than attending the same school or class, so that the learning would be effective and more knowledge would be obtained.
We increase our understanding of our own culture by viewing it as one of many cultures existing on earth. We learn that our values, goals and practices increase do not exist in a vacuum and are dynamics concepts that can be molded with exposure to other culture. Merely reading about another culture wills not increase understanding of our own culture .It is essential furthermore, to approach the study of other people with an open mind and without the idea, that one’s own culture is superior to other. By keeping open mind, one process, enrich his understanding of
Schooling is (as they want us to believe) education, but at its lowest and stupidest level. They appear to be the same thing, but in fact they have different meanings and outcomes. Schooling is what modern school applies on students. Indeed, schooling is all about making young people slaves who will lead the world in the future in a very planned and structured way. Governments
Schools in all societies were purposely created as a challenge to preserve the contents and practical social, political and economic heritage of society. We can tell education from a broad perspective as being a process of socialization into the norms and values of the society into which one is placed. On the other hand we can look at education from the rather narrow sense of what happens in the school.
