Top 8 Reasons Why Education is the Key to Success copy (1)

You may have heard the saying that education is the key to success, but it’s really true. In fact, there are eight solid reasons to believe that pursuing education beyond your high school degree in the 21st century will make you more attractive to potential employers and ultimately become more successful.

education is the key to future success

1. Education gives you the skills that companies are looking for

As you progress through a college degree, you’ll learn how to manage your time; how to juggle several tasks at the same time, how to interact with all kinds of people, and new skills that companies are looking for now. At the University of the People (UoPeople), for example, faculty come from all over the globe and are prepared to teach those cutting-edge skills that companies are seeking as they look for new hires who will carry their businesses forward through the 21st century. In short, a real education today means that the institution offering a program of study provides skills that can be applied immediately once the student graduates and becomes part of the workforce

2. You’ll form networks and meet new people

Attending college isn’t just about completing courses and meeting other students. A successful, viable institution of higher learning has partners, affiliates, alumni, and other entities that can become a part of your professional network once you join a university community. Nowadays, when you pursue your education, most universities will show you how to become part of an  online community where you have plenty of opportunities to engage with other students, thinkers, degree-seekers, and problem-solvers like yourself.

As you proceed, you’ll gain a clearer sense of your own ideas and values. And when you’re finished with school, you’ll find that businesses in today’s global society are looking for people who know how to be a part of an online community and can communicate the company brand to their clients.

3. You’ll keep up with changing technologies

When you enroll in an academic program offered by University of the People or another accredited university, you engage in learning while using technologies that hiring companies are looking for. You gain valuable digital experience, allowing your education to provide you with the key to success.

4. You’ll define your career interests.

When you pursue an education in a particular degree, you’ll find that you’ll learn more about your professional interests, what you plan to do with your degree, and what the career options are. For instance, your choice of higher education provides you with resources, contacts, networks, and many other influences that allow you to explore the details of your career choice. You’ll have a much clearer notion of what you want to do, what you are capable of doing, and how to get a actually get a job in your field after completing your education.

5. You’ll develop time management skills.

Even if you are pursuing an education full-time, you may still need to work and manage the household budget, along with many other challenges. In short, because life requires that we wear many hats even under the best of circumstances, the process of getting an education automatically makes you focus on honing those coveted time management skills one of the sure-fire keys to success desired by top hiring companies all over the world.

6. You won’t be left out

Up until the first half of the 20th century, societies across the globe were vastly more rural and much less interconnected. Many people only received a minimal education without pursuing a high school degree. Today, times have changed. Digital technologies dominate virtually every aspect of our lives, making it essential to have the basic high school requirements for working with various technologies, communicating with written and verbal skills, and reaching out to others around the globe. However, a high school degree these days is just the minimum you need to consider entering the workforce in most instances. In fact, between 2019 and 2029, most of the jobs available will require a bachelor’s degree .

education is the key to future success

For all these reasons, acquiring education beyond the high school level is the key to success. We live in an ever-connected society where opportunities and expectations for knowledge and performance increase every day. And that’s why you don’t want to be left behind when there are real resources available to help you succeed. University of the People understands these growing needs and opportunities, and that’s why it makes learning tuition-free and accessible.

What Is Education? Insights from the World's Greatest Minds

Forty thought-provoking quotes about education..

Posted May 12, 2014 | Reviewed by Ekua Hagan

As we seek to refine and reform today’s system of education , we would do well to ask, “What is education?” Our answers may provide insights that get to the heart of what matters for 21st century children and adults alike.

It is important to step back from divisive debates on grades, standardized testing, and teacher evaluation—and really look at the meaning of education. So I decided to do just that—to research the answer to this straightforward, yet complex question.

Looking for wisdom from some of the greatest philosophers, poets, educators, historians, theologians, politicians, and world leaders, I found answers that should not only exist in our history books, but also remain at the core of current education dialogue.

In my work as a developmental psychologist, I constantly struggle to balance the goals of formal education with the goals of raising healthy, happy children who grow to become contributing members of families and society. Along with academic skills, the educational journey from kindergarten through college is a time when young people develop many interconnected abilities.

As you read through the following quotes, you’ll discover common threads that unite the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical aspects of education. For me, good education facilitates the development of an internal compass that guides us through life.

Which quotes resonate most with you? What images of education come to your mind? How can we best integrate the wisdom of the ages to address today’s most pressing education challenges?

If you are a middle or high school teacher, I invite you to have your students write an essay entitled, “What is Education?” After reviewing the famous quotes below and the images they evoke, ask students to develop their very own quote that answers this question. With their unique quote highlighted at the top of their essay, ask them to write about what helps or hinders them from getting the kind of education they seek. I’d love to publish some student quotes, essays, and images in future articles, so please contact me if students are willing to share!

The turning point: Why we must transform education now

Why we must transform education now

Global warming. Accelerated digital revolution. Growing inequalities. Democratic backsliding. Loss of biodiversity. Devastating pandemics. And the list goes on. These are just some of the most pressing challenges that we are facing today in our interconnected world.

The diagnosis is clear: Our current global education system is failing to address these alarming challenges and provide quality learning for everyone throughout life. We know that education today is not fulfilling its promise to help us shape peaceful, just, and sustainable societies. These findings were detailed in UNESCO’s Futures of Education Report in November 2021 which called for a new social contract for education.

That is why it has never been more crucial to reimagine the way we learn, what we learn and how we learn. The turning point is now. It’s time to transform education. How do we make that happen?

Here’s what you need to know. 

Why do we need to transform education?

The current state of the world calls for a major transformation in education to repair past injustices and enhance our capacity to act together for a more sustainable and just future. We must ensure the right to lifelong learning by providing all learners - of all ages in all contexts - the knowledge and skills they need to realize their full potential and live with dignity. Education can no longer be limited to a single period of one’s lifetime. Everyone, starting with the most marginalized and disadvantaged in our societies, must be entitled to learning opportunities throughout life both for employment and personal agency. A new social contract for education must unite us around collective endeavours and provide the knowledge and innovation needed to shape a better world anchored in social, economic, and environmental justice.  

What are the key areas that need to be transformed?

  • Inclusive, equitable, safe and healthy schools

Education is in crisis. High rates of poverty, exclusion and gender inequality continue to hold millions back from learning. Moreover, COVID-19 further exposed the inequities in education access and quality, and violence, armed conflict, disasters and reversal of women’s rights have increased insecurity. Inclusive, transformative education must ensure that all learners have unhindered access to and participation in education, that they are safe and healthy, free from violence and discrimination, and are supported with comprehensive care services within school settings. Transforming education requires a significant increase in investment in quality education, a strong foundation in comprehensive early childhood development and education, and must be underpinned by strong political commitment, sound planning, and a robust evidence base.

  • Learning and skills for life, work and sustainable development

There is a crisis in foundational learning, of literacy and numeracy skills among young learners. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, learning poverty has increased by a third in low- and middle-income countries, with an estimated 70% of 10-year-olds unable to understand a simple written text. Children with disabilities are 42% less likely to have foundational reading and numeracy skills compared to their peers. More than 771 million people still lack basic literacy skills, two-thirds of whom are women. Transforming education means empowering learners with knowledge, skills, values and attitudes to be resilient, adaptable and prepared for the uncertain future while contributing to human and planetary well-being and sustainable development. To do so, there must be emphasis on foundational learning for basic literacy and numeracy; education for sustainable development, which encompasses environmental and climate change education; and skills for employment and entrepreneurship.

  • Teachers, teaching and the teaching profession

Teachers are essential for achieving learning outcomes, and for achieving SDG 4 and the transformation of education. But teachers and education personnel are confronted by four major challenges: Teacher shortages; lack of professional development opportunities; low status and working conditions; and lack of capacity to develop teacher leadership, autonomy and innovation. Accelerating progress toward SDG 4 and transforming education require that there is an adequate number of teachers to meet learners’ needs, and all education personnel are trained, motivated, and supported. This can only be possible when education is adequately funded, and policies recognize and support the teaching profession, to improve their status and working conditions.

  • Digital learning and transformation

The COVID-19 crisis drove unprecedented innovations in remote learning through harnessing digital technologies. At the same time, the digital divide excluded many from learning, with nearly one-third of school-age children (463 million) without access to distance learning. These inequities in access meant some groups, such as young women and girls, were left out of learning opportunities. Digital transformation requires harnessing technology as part of larger systemic efforts to transform education, making it more inclusive, equitable, effective, relevant, and sustainable. Investments and action in digital learning should be guided by the three core principles: Center the most marginalized; Free, high-quality digital education content; and Pedagogical innovation and change.

  • Financing of education

While global education spending has grown overall, it has been thwarted by high population growth, the surmounting costs of managing education during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the diversion of aid to other emergencies, leaving a massive global education financial gap amounting to US$ 148 billion annually. In this context, the first step toward transformation is to urge funders to redirect resources back to education to close the funding gap. Following that, countries must have significantly increased and sustainable financing for achieving SDG 4 and that these resources must be equitably and effectively allocated and monitored. Addressing the gaps in education financing requires policy actions in three key areas: Mobilizing more resources, especially domestic; increasing efficiency and equity of allocations and expenditures; and improving education financing data. Finally, determining which areas needs to be financed, and how, will be informed by recommendations from each of the other four action tracks .

What is the Transforming Education Summit?

UNESCO is hosting the Transforming Education Pre-Summit on 28-30 June 2022, a meeting of  over 140 Ministers of Education, as well as  policy and business leaders and youth activists, who are coming together to build a roadmap to transform education globally. This meeting is a precursor to the Transforming Education Summit to be held on 19 September 2022 at the UN General Assembly in New York. This high-level summit is convened by the UN Secretary General to radically change our approach to education systems. Focusing on 5 key areas of transformation, the meeting seeks to mobilize political ambition, action, solutions and solidarity to transform education: to take stock of efforts to recover pandemic-related learning losses; to reimagine education systems for the world of today and tomorrow; and to revitalize national and global efforts to achieve SDG-4.

Children get their temperature checked and use hand sanitizer

"The future of education is here"

About the author, antónio guterres.

António Guterres is the ninth Secretary-General of the United Nations, who took office on 1st January 2017.

Education is the key to personal development and the future of societies.

It unlocks opportunities and narrows inequalities.

It is the bedrock of informed, tolerant societies, and a primary driver of sustainable development.

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to the largest disruption of education ever. 

In mid-July, schools were closed in more than 160 countries, affecting over 1 billion students.

At least 40 million children worldwide have missed out on education in their critical pre-school year.

And parents, especially women, have been forced to assume heavy care burdens in the home.

Despite the delivery of lessons by radio, television and online, and the best efforts of teachers and parents, many students remain out of reach.

Learners with disabilities, those in minority or disadvantaged communities, displaced and refugee students and those in remote areas are at highest risk of being left behind.

And even for those who can access distance learning, success depends on their living conditions, including the fair distribution of domestic duties.

We are at a defining moment for the world’s children and young people.

We already faced a learning crisis before the pandemic.

More than 250 million school-age children were out of school.

And only a quarter of secondary school children in developing countries were leaving school with basic skills.

Now we face a generational catastrophe that could waste untold human potential, undermine decades of progress, and exacerbate entrenched inequalities.

The knock-on effects on child nutrition, child marriage and gender equality, among others, are deeply concerning.

This is the backdrop to the Policy Brief I am launching today, together with a new campaign with education partners and United Nations agencies called ‘Save our Future’.

The decisions that governments and partners take now will have lasting impact on hundreds of millions of young people, and on the development prospects of countries for decades to come.

This Policy Brief calls for action in four key areas:

First, reopening schools.

Once local transmission of COVID-19 is under control, getting students back into schools and learning institutions as safely as possible must be a top priority.

We have issued guidance to help governments in this complex endeavour.

It will be essential to balance health risks against risks to children’s education and protection, and to factor in the impact on women’s labour force participation.

Consultation with parents, carers, teachers and young people is fundamental.

Second, prioritizing education in financing decisions.

Before the crisis hit, low and middle-income countries already faced an education funding gap of $1.5 trillion dollars a year.

This gap has now grown.

Education budgets need to be protected and increased.

And it is critical that education is at the heart of international solidarity efforts, from debt management and stimulus packages to global humanitarian appeals and official development assistance.

Third, targeting the hardest to reach.  

Education initiatives must seek to reach those at greatest risk of being left behind -- people in emergencies and crises; minority groups of all kinds; displaced people and those with disabilities.

They should be sensitive to the specific challenges faced by girls, boys, women and men, and should urgently seek to bridge the digital divide.

Fourth, the future of education is here.

We have a generational opportunity to reimagine education.

We can take a leap towards forward-looking systems that deliver quality education for all as a springboard for the Sustainable Development Goals.

To achieve this, we need investment in digital literacy and infrastructure, an evolution towards learning how to learn, a rejuvenation of life-long learning and strengthened links between formal and non-formal education.

And we need to draw on flexible delivery methods, digital technologies and modernized curricula while ensuring sustained support for teachers and communities.

As the world faces unsustainable levels of inequality, we need education – the great equalizer – more than ever.  

We must take bold steps now, to create inclusive, resilient, quality education systems fit for the future.

S7-Episode 2: Bringing Health to the World

“You see, we're not doing this work to make ourselves feel better. That sort of conventional notion of what a do-gooder is. We're doing this work because we are totally convinced that it's not necessary in today's wealthy world for so many people to be experiencing discomfort, for so many people to be experiencing hardship, for so many people to have their lives and their livelihoods imperiled.”

Dr. David Nabarro has dedicated his life to global health. After a long career that’s taken him from the horrors of war torn Iraq, to the devastating aftermath of the Indian Ocean tsunami, he is still spurred to action by the tremendous inequalities in global access to medical care.

“The thing that keeps me awake most at night is the rampant inequities in our world…We see an awful lot of needless suffering.”

Education: Measuring for Success in Today’s World

Marguerite clarke.


Experience reveals three key lessons to keep in mind for those wishing to pursue these kinds of reforms: Lesson 1: Benchmark learning globally   In a global economy, the primary benchmark for success is no longer improvement by national standards, but the best-performing education systems internationally. (Having said that, it’s also important for countries to set and measure learning goals that reflect their own national priorities and values.) This usually means participating in one of the many international assessment programs that test the math, science, problem solving or other competencies of students at the same grade or age level in different education systems around the world. Countries – particularly developing and emerging economies – may feel at a disadvantage in this global benchmarking, but should keep in mind that steady improvement over time is the important thing. Korea, which has shown remarkable progress in its education performance on the global stage over the past decade or so (with its economy as the beneficiary), is a good example of this.   Lesson 2: Believe that all children can learn   You must commit to the belief that all children can achieve. No longer can there be a ‘fast’ track for some students and a ‘not so fast’ track for others that leads to dead-end opportunities. One of the secrets behind the highest-performing education systems (think Finland, Singapore, and Japan) is a belief that every child can learn and succeed no matter where they are from or where they go to school. Measuring for success in today’s world means measuring for everyone’s success.   Lesson 3: Spend wisely to make a difference in learning   More money makes a difference up to a point. After that, what matters for learning is the quality of the spending choices. When it comes to measuring key learning goals for today’s world, one of the best investments is to build capacity in the classroom. This includes developing and retaining high-quality teachers who are able to engage in the kinds of instructional and assessment practices that support student learning in areas that are harder to measure on traditional tests, such as creativity and team work. These so-called non-cognitive or 21 st century skills are vital to success in today’s workplace.   Next week, Russia will host a high-level global conference on the theme of “ Measuring for Success ” in St. Petersburg. The conference will explore a variety of student learning goals – for further study, work, and life – and the key role that measurement and assessment play in monitoring and achieving them. The conference is the result of a five-year partnership between Russia and the World Bank to support the improvement of learning outcomes at the global and country level. Countries such as Armenia, Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, and Vietnam will share their successes and challenges ahead. These countries are proof that education systems that take learning and measurement of learning seriously are creating a foundation that will better ensure success for all their children in today’s world.

In the quest to transform education, putting purpose at the center is key

Subscribe to the center for universal education bulletin, emily markovich morris and emily markovich morris fellow - global economy and development , center for universal education @emilymarmorris ghulam omar qargha ghulam omar qargha fellow - global economy and development , center for universal education.

This commentary is the first of a three-part series on (1) why it is important to define the purpose of education, (2) how historical forces have interacted to shape the purposes of today’s modern schooling systems , and (3) the role of power in reshaping how the purpose of school is taken up by global education actors in policy and practice .

Education systems transformation is creating buzz among educators, policymakers, researchers, and families. For the first time, the U.N. secretary general convened the Transforming Education Summit around the subject in 2022. In tandem, UNESCO, UNESCO Institute for Statistics, UNICEF, the World Bank, and the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) co-authored “ From Learning Recovery to Education Transformation ” to lay a roadmap for how to move from COVID-19 school closures to systems change. Donor institutions like the Global Partnership for Education’s most recent strategy centers on systems transformation, and groups like the Global Campaign for Education are advocating for broader public engagement on transformative education. 

Unless we anchor ourselves and define where we are coming from and where we want to go as societies and institutions, discussions on systems transformation will continue to be circuitous and contentious.  

What is missing from the larger discussion on systems transformation is an intentional and candid dialogue on how societies and institutions are defining the purpose of education. When the topic is discussed, it often misses the mark or proposes an intervention that takes for granted that there is a shared purpose among policymakers, educators, families, students, and other actors. For example, the current global focus on foundational learning is not a purpose unto itself but rather a mechanism for serving a greater purpose — whether for economic development, national identity formation, and/or supporting improved well-being.   

The Role of Purpose in Systems Transformation   

The purpose of education has sparked many conversations over the centuries. In 1930, Eleanor Roosevelt wrote in her essay in Pictorial Review , “What is the purpose of education? This question agitates scholars, teachers, statesmen, every group, in fact, of thoughtful men and women.”  She argues that education is critical for building “good citizenship.” As Martin Luther King, Jr. urged in his 1947 essay, “ The Purpose of Education ,” education transmits “not only the accumulated knowledge of the race but also the accumulated experience of social living.” King urged us to see the purpose of education as a social and political struggle as much as a philosophical one.   

In contemporary conversations, the purpose of education is often classified in terms of the individual and social benefits—such personal, cultural, economic, and social purposes or individual/social possibility and individual/social efficiency . However, when countries and communities define the purpose, it needs to be an intentional part of the transformation process. As laid out in the Center for Universal Education’s (CUE’s) policy brief “ Transforming Education Systems: Why, What, and How ,” defining and deconstructing assumptions is critical to building a “broadly shared vision and purpose” of education.   

Education and the Sustainable Development Goals  

Underlying all the different purposes of education lies the foundational framing of education as a human right in the Sustainable Development Goals. People of all races, ethnicities, gender identities, abilities, languages, religions, socio-economic status, and national or social origins have the right to an education as affirmed in Article 26 of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights . This legal framework has fueled the education for all movement and civil rights movements around the world, alongside the Convention of the Rights of the Child of 1989 , which further protects children’s rights to a quality, safe, and equitable education. Defending people’s right to education regardless of how they will use their education helps keep us from losing sight of why we are having these conversations.   

Themes in education from the Sustainable Development Goals cross multiple purposes. For example, lifelong learning and environmental education are two key areas that extend across purposes. Lifelong learning emphasizes that education extends across age groups, education levels, modalities, and geographies. In some contexts, lifelong learning can be professional growth for economic development, but it can also be practice for spiritual growth. Similarly, environmental education may be taught as sustainable development or the balance among economic, social, and environmental protections through well-being and flourishing — or taught through a perspective of culturally sustaining practices influenced by Indigenous philosophies in education.   

Five Key Purposes of Education  

The purposes of education overlap and intersect, but pulling them apart helps us interrogate the dominant ways of framing education in the larger ecosystem and to draw attention to those that receive less attention. Categories also help us move from very philosophical and academic conversations into practical discussions that educators, learners, and families can join. Although these five categories do not do justice to the complexity of the conversation, they are a start.   

  • Education for economic development is the idea that learners pursue an education to eventually obtain work or to improve the quality, safety, or earnings of their current work. This purpose is the most dominant framing used by education systems around the world and part of the agenda to modernize and develop societies according to different stages of economic growth . This economic purpose is rooted in the human capital theory, which poses that the more schooling a person completes, the higher their income, wages, or productivity ( Aslam & Rawal, 2015; Berman, 2022 ). Higher individual earnings lead to greater household income and eventually higher national economic growth. In addition to the World Bank , global institutions like the United States Agency for International Development and the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development often position education primarily in relation to economic development. The promise of education as a key to social mobility and helping individuals and communities improve their economic circumstances also falls under this purpose ( World Economic Forum ).   
  • Education for building national identities and civic engagement positions education as an important conduit for promoting national, community, or other identities. With the emergence of modern states, education became a key tool for building national identity — and in some contexts , also democratic citizenship as demonstrated in Eleanor Roosevelt’s essay; this motivation continues to be a primary purpose in many localities ( Verger, Lubienski, & Steiner-Khamsi, 2016 ). Today this purpose is heavily influenced by human right s education — or the teaching and learning of — as well as peace education, to “sustain a just and equitable peace and world” ( Bajaj & Hantzopoulus, 2016, p. 1 ). This purpose is foundational to civics and citizenship education and international exchange programming focused on building global citizenship to name a few.  
  • Education as liberation and critical conscientization looks at the centrality of education in confronting and redressing different forms of structural oppression. Martin Luther King wrote about the purpose of education “to teach one to think intensively and to think critically.” Educator and philosopher Paolo Freire wrote extensively about the importance of education in developing a critical consciousness and awareness of the roots of oppression, and in identifying opportunities to challenge and transform this oppression through action. Critical race, gender , disabilities, and other theories in education further examine the ways education reproduces multiple and intersectional subordinations , but also how teaching and learning has the power to redress oppression through cultural and social transformation. As liberatory and critical educator, bell hooks wrote, “To educate as a practice of freedom is a way of teaching that anyone can learn” ( hooks, 1994, p. 13 ). Efforts to teach social justice and equity—from racial literacy to gender equity—often draw on this purpose.   
  • Education for well-being and flourishing emphasizes how learning is fundamental to building thriving people and communities. Although economic well-being is a component of this purpose, it is not the only purpose—rather social, emotional, physical and mental, spiritual and other forms of well-being are also privileged. Amartya Sen’s  and Martha Nussbaum’s work on well-being and capabilities have greatly informed this purpose. They argue that individuals and communities must define education in ways that they have reason to value beyond just an economic end. The Flourish Project has been developing and advocating an ecological model for helping understand and map these different types of well-being. Vital to this purpose are also social and emotional learning efforts that support children and youth in acquiring knowledge, attitudes, and skills critical to positive mental and emotional health, relationships with others, among other areas ( CASEL, 2018 ; EASEL Lab, 2023 ).  
  • Education as culturally and spiritually sustaining is one of the purposes that receives insufficient attention in global education conversations. This purpose is critical to the past, present, and future field of education and emphasizes building relationships to oneself and one’s land and environment, culture, community, and faith. Centered in Indigenous philosophies in education , this purpose encompasses sustaining cultural knowledges often disregarded and displaced by modern schooling efforts. Borrowing from Django Paris’s concept of “culturally sustaining pedagogy , ” the purpose of teaching and learning goes beyond “building bridges” among the home, community, and school and instead brings together the learning practices that happen in these different domains.  Similarly neglected in the discourse is the purpose of education for spiritual and religious development, which can be intertwined with Indigenous pedagogies , as well as education for liberation, and education for well-being and flourishing. Examples include the Hibbert Lectures of 1965 , which argue that Christian values should guide the purposes of education, and scholars of Islamic education who delve into the purposes of education in the Muslim world. Indigenous pedagogies, as well as spiritual and religious teaching , predate modern school movements, yet this undercurrent of moral, religious, character, and spiritual purposes of education is still alive in much of the world.  

Beyond the Buzz   

The way we define the purpose of education is heavily influenced by our experiences, as well as those of our families, communities, and societies. The underlying philosophies of education that are presented both influence our education systems and are influenced by our education systems. Unless we anchor ourselves and define where we are coming from and where we want to go as societies and institutions, discussions on systems transformation will continue to be circuitous and contentious. We will continue to focus on upgrading and changing standards, competencies, content, and practices without looking at why education matters. We will continue to fight over the place of climate change education, critical race theory, socio-emotional learning, and religious learning in our schools without understanding the ways each of these fits into the larger education ecosystem.   

The intent of this blog is not to box education into finite purposes, but to remind us in the quest for systems transformation that there are multiple ways to see the purpose of education. Taking time to dig into the philosophies, histories, and complexities behind these purposes will help us ensure that we are headed toward transformation and not just adding to the buzz.

Why education is the key to success?

Education is The Key to Success | Why

The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who can not read and write but those who can not learn, unlearn, and relearn

It is a famous saying of Thomas Jefferson that education is the key to success. If you intend to know how education is the key to success, the answer is clear from the statement that education is a road map that takes into the realms of discovering new things, giving innovative ideas, and bestowing new skills while bringing change in life.

Here, “why education is the key to success?” is our topic. We will discuss the significance of education, the objectives and goals of education, and the reasons why education is the key to success in detail. Only those know that education is the true key to success who want to make the most of their lives.

Significance of Education

Education empowers individuals and equips them with the necessary tools that are super important for success. Without education, we are out of the way, we do not know the direction and we are in obscure situations. It lightens up the present and makes our future bright.

People mostly confuse the word education. They consider that education is got only from school, college or university. The institutions are only the sources of education that provide formal education.

Education in other words is the learning that starts from the cradle and ends till grave. Even a person who never gets an education from any institution or never attends classes can have an education. But how?

In spite of colleges, and schools that are considered the sources of education, we miss the important source of education which is experience. Like institutions, experiences are the most important source of education. Education is not what we get from books only, it also includes experiences, morality, attitudes and values etc.

Education means continuous learning. Good education and good knowledge are a guarantee to make us successful. Career prospects depend upon education. If we stop education after high school, there will be fewer opportunities. So, after college, we will find more opportunities for jobs as well as for business.

They want to go ahead in life and want to learn and grow by getting the appropriate education. They also know how education will open new and many doors. By reading this article, you will be able to find out how education leads towards success and that learning must be continued and should not be stopped.

Today in the digital era, we can get an online master’s degree and we can achieve anything we dreamt of. Along with this, we will attain a skill set that is surety for success. A person with a good and proper education and skill set will not face failure in life and his chances of success are increased.

Objectives and goals of education

Though we achieve all the qualifications we want yet learning is important. So what we can do to keep our learning continue, we can read journals, attend talks, workshops, and seminars, and even attend online webinars. The objectives of education include:

  • To ensure that everyone has access to high-quality education, irrespective of their socioeconomic status.
  • To encourage the growth of the mind and cognition while fostering creativity, problem-solving, and analytical thinking.
  • To promote an approach to development and a fondness for continuous learning.
  • To provide people with the necessary information and abilities for both personal and professional success.
  • To encourage tolerance, empathy, and worldwide citizenship by promoting social and cultural aspects of knowledge.
  • To empower people to take an active role in democratic societies and engage in civic life.
  • To cultivate moral character, honesty, and enable people to make wise choices regarding their health, well-being, and sustainable lifestyle.
  • To make it easier for people to learn digital and technological literacy.
  • To encourage diversity and give everyone access to equal educational opportunities, irrespective of gender, ethnicity, or socioeconomic position.
  • To encourage one’s development, self-assurance, and sense of purpose.
  • To enable people to participate in economic development as well as creativity and prepare them for work.
  • To promote entrepreneurship, creativity, and innovation.
  • To encourage awareness of sustainability and understanding of the environment.
  • To promote interpersonal, communication, and teamwork abilities.
  • To offer chances for physical and emotional growth through extracurricular activities, the arts, and sports.

In order to be specific about the area we choose, we can be in touch with those who can provide counselling to us in our selection of careers .

How Education is the gateway to achieving success in life? Reasons

Let’s find out how education brings success to our lives. know what are the appealing reasons.

1. Education builds confidence

Education builds confidence in individuals. When we obtain a good level of education, and when we know how to learn well and in a proper way, we feel confident in ourselves and in our abilities.

This is an additional self-confidence that can help us intensively in achieving our goals in life. People in positions and jobs are confident of their status and gain their employees’ trust and respect.

A fully confident person tries new things and knows that they will bring success and prosperity. But sometimes, if he does not get the desired result, he does not lose confidence and learns from his mistakes.

To be confident is good but keep in mind that we cannot know everything. Being open to learning new things and learning from others who are successful, is also important along with being assertive and decisive.

2. Thrive for the competition

If we want to be successful or successful businessmen or salespeople, our customers come without our choice, what we can do simply to go ahead of the competition. Although this is not easy yet education can do it for us. Education gives us an understanding of things as well as enables us to understand the mind of the customer.

For instance, if we get a degree in MBA, we can learn how we can boost our business and become successful. Moreover, if we specialize in marketing, we can be able to create unbelievable marketing strategies that can be shared on social media. This is a way of promoting our products or services to as many people as possible.

If we have more and more knowledge, the chances of our success will be increased. In the case of any difficulty or problem, we can find out its solution.

This can be done by learning all about it and the problem will be no more a problem for us. Those who do not consider education important, do not go forward to learn more. The likelihood, they get failure and do not bother to take the time to find out more.

3. Dreams become reality

In life, we have heard many times from people that they had wished to become this and that their dreams did not come true. They all the time expressed their regret and blamed that they should do much progress.

But this is not the case with education. Those who have completed their high school education, learn online , and specialize in a peculiar topic won’t forget that learning is a lifelong skill that will help in bringing dreams to reality.

4. Education ensures control over life

Life is ephemeral and we are not born to live forever. To make our life better and to change it can be in our control. So education can help us in changing our lives for the better one. Being a graduate, one can be able to become the manager of a firm instead of becoming an entry-level employee.

One can become a CEO or shareholder and get profits at the end of the month instead of getting a salary. With the changing passage of time, a new world would open up for us, and new, exciting opportunities will wait for us.

People can also get an opportunity to get an education from the university. We can also get sponsorship for our studies that can be tuition-free also and cannot create a barrier in our going ahead.

5. Life could be in the best phase

Education gives a better and deeper understanding of what is right, what is wrong, and what is fair and unfair as well. It helps us in building our reasoning and developing critical thinking skills. The skills are practical things that are utilized and applied to the situation in life.

Through the tool of education, we get aware of our rights and responsibilities as citizens. We can be able to make more balanced personal judgments and apply them to make the world a better place.

6. Make skilled to be employed

If we get an education at the college level, it teaches us how to manage our time, how to perform multitasking, and how to develop communication with people of different types, from class fellows to professors and from individuals to industry professionals.

These skills are important and integral to the future. If one has to go into the workplace or back into the workplace as a mature student, he will be more careful in getting interpersonal and organizational skills. These skills will help him shine at work and to cope with the challenges that he faces in the professional world.

7. Earning potential with education

It is seen that a college student earns more in his lifetime because he works with more reasoning and with a professional skill set. This happens only when one gets an education from school and college. It will also be more profitable for the student if he gets a tuition-free education.

For those students who cannot afford their studies and borrow from others, they can pay back the loan by developing their own earning sources. Along with this, there are many scholarships available for the students to cover the minimal assessment fees.

8. Its converts ideas into reality

Education is a thing that turns one’s dreams into reality. Being a college student, Mark Zuckerberg dreamed about a connected society and he invented Facebook to connect people with one another.

If one is unable to create a website, a college, or institution can provide a chance to connect with others and to change the whole world by making his dreams come true.

If anyone desires a higher salary, he must feel lucky. American Institute for Economic Research states that college students aged 25-32 earn $17,000 more every year than those who didn’t attend college, and 72% of millennials state that their degree has already paid them off. And those over 32 need not worry, they can also earn more. They are not over age and can find their dreams become one step closer to reality.

9. Confidence and staying power

A degree is certified proof of one’s intelligence. Even if one gets a certificate in a certain subject at the high school level, it is proof to show the outside world the talent and skills he has. This gives an in-depth knowledge of the subject and he can stick out a challenging scenario to the end.

He can get through the difficult time, the deadlines, and the time spent in front of the computer and madly writing the paper.  This builds confidence in himself and others to believe in him.

With all the dedicated time to studying the latest books, and papers, and learning through subjects, one can have an in-depth understanding of the subject matter. The others may have only general knowledge and do not know all these techniques for a prosperous future.

10. Education polishes financial intelligence

By getting an education at the college level, the student is able to manage his finance and can have sufficient cash in short term to bear the expenses of studies. He can do things like work out part-time and earn $100. This teaches the student the budgeting skills and economic understanding that lead him to get success in life.

11. Education channelize energy

Education helps to channel the energies. One wants to learn woodwork or business economics. He may want to learn how to sing a song or coding, he can get a chance to follow a curriculum from the beginning to the end and his energies are charged, and he achieves his targeted goals. When one learns a new skill or subject, it helps him feel more energetic, purposeful, and positive about life.

12. Education equips individuals with the skills that businesses seek

Education is an essential tool that provides students with the skills that companies are looking for. As you progress through a college degree, you learn how to manage your time, handle several tasks at the same time, interact with all kinds of people and acquire new skills that companies are seeking.

13. Education creates connections and encounters new individuals

College life is not limited to classes and peers, It builds networks with partners, alumni, and more. Joining an online community offers opportunities to connect with like-minded individuals, gain clarity on your ideas, and develop valuable communication skills. In the professional world, companies value those who can engage in online communities and effectively represent their brand.

Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education not a preparation for life; education is life itself

14. You will stay updated with evolving technologies

By enrolling in an academic program at Universities or colleges accredited university, you acquire in-demand technological skills sought after by hiring companies. Empowering your education, this digital experience becomes your pathway to success.

15. You will discover and define your career interests

Pursuing a degree helps you discover and refine your professional interests, career goals, and available opportunities. Higher education provides valuable resources, contacts, and networks to explore your chosen path. It gives you a clearer understanding of your capabilities and guides you in securing employment in your field after graduation.

16. Education enhances your time management abilities

While pursuing full-time education, you may combine various responsibilities such as work and managing household finances. The pursuit of education naturally sharpens your time management skills , a sought-after trait by global employers, ensuring a path to success amidst life’s multifaceted demands.

17. You will not be overlooked

In the past, rural societies had limited education, but now digital technologies are pervasive , emphasizing the need for basic high school qualifications in technology, communication, and global outreach. However, a high school degree is often just the starting point for entering the workforce.

Real-Time Examples

Here are some real-time examples of some influential educated personalities who got success through it.

Education is Key to Success: But What Does That Mean?

You would probably expect a life-long educator to write that education is key to success , right? But I’m going to dig deeper than that simple five word phrase — education is key to success — and explore the many dimensions of what it means to be educated and how we become educated .

I won’t go into my credentials here because you can find them on my ABOUT page, but I’ve been an educator for a very long time in many different roles and capacities.

And I want you to know right from the start that I will NOT try to convince anyone that a formal education is the answer to success for everyone! Education is key to success — YES — but there are many dimensions to the kind of education we need to succeed.

What is Education?

Some people immediately think of school when they hear the word education . But education is far more complex than school. Education goes far deeper than what you can get from elementary, secondary, or even university schooling.

My favorite definition of education comes from Wikipedia :

Education is the process of facilitating learning, or the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, morals, beliefs, habits, and personal development. Educational methods include teaching, training, storytelling, discussion, and directed research. Education frequently takes place under the guidance of educators; however, learners can also educate themselves. Education can take place in formal or informal settings, and any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered educational.

an image with black silhouettes of heads against a blue background with a hand writing words that are associated with education is key to success

What Does It Mean to be Educated?

Education is about discovering new things. It is the process of developing enough insight and curiosity to formulate questions, draw conclusions, and understand possibilities.

It’s about increasing your knowledge-base so you can influence and shape the world around you. You can educate future generations and bring about positive change.

Education is about life experiences. It’s getting to know the world around you, going on crazy adventures, and experiencing different cultures. It’s about socializing with people in a variety of settings and learning to appreciate others. It’s also about learning to treat ALL people with respect and dignity.

It’s about getting to know YOURSELF — your strengths, weaknesses, desires, dreams, and inner soul. It’s about developing positive attitudes, values, and morals that align with peace, happiness, and harmony.

Education is about taking responsibility for your own personal growth, developing essential life skills and coping skills to handle difficult times in your life, and unlocking the right doors of opportunity.

Of course, education means you also need to learn reading, writing, and arithmetic! (I don’t want anyone saying Mrs. Ballinger never mentioned school stuff in her article!) Plus, I better not forget to mention Social Studies and Science. The teaching and learning that occurs in schools are important aspects of education, too. This is your academic learning.

But I want to emphasize that far more learning takes place outside of a school building than most people realize. In fact, you might want to read my article about going on vacation during the school year because you’ll never worry about taking that vacation again!

How Do We Become Educated?

From the day you are born to the day you die, you are continuously being educated.

You are constantly learning how to interact with the great big world around you and the circumstances it throws at you.

From the time you start learning to sing the ABC’s until the time you walk across the stage to collect your diploma — you are learning. These are your academic years. While you may have 12 years of schooling in classrooms, you also have a lifetime of learning outside of a classroom.

Whether you are taking your first trip to the Emergency Room for a doctor to cast your first broken bone, or you are planning your wedding to marry the person of your dreams, or you are broken-hearted because you’ve just lost a parent — you are learning.

If you are dealing with a bully on the playground at school , or an adult bully in the workplace — you are learning how to deal with bullying (and hopefully how NOT to be a bully). You are learning that not everyone in the world is KIND and you will face adversity throughout life. But these experiences help prepare us for the next hardship.

When you meet someone with differing abilities (aka: disabilities) such as someone with Down Syndrome or Autism — you are learning. You are learning about their behaviors and how to relate to them. These life experiences will teach you far more than you can learn in a classroom.

If you decide to go to college to become a doctor or a lawyer, or you decide to go to trade school to become an electrician, or you decide to attend an ivy league university to become the President of the United States — you are learning.

When you retire from a long career and don’t quite know what to do with yourself, you have a LOT of learning to do. In fact, you have to do a lot of reflecting so you can redefine your personal growth, and find your passion and purpose all over again. I know this from experience! And here I am writing — something I’ve wanted to do my whole life!

Education is a Lifelong Process

I’ve always considered myself a lifelong learner and as I’ve navigated my way through the online world of blogging, I’ve proven this to myself. Education is a continual process that keeps the mind healthy and the soul happy.

Education does not stop. Whether you are in school or living life on an iceberg in Antarctica, your education continues. You are developing your skills, knowledge-base, and brain power.

Education provides knowledge.

Knowledge is power.

Together, they can turn dreams into realities!

The more knowledge you gain, the more opportunities will become available for you to achieve success in career, personal growth , and happiness.

So when you hear “education is key to success,” be sure to understand that education does not just mean formal schooling or a college degree. Learning comes from many sources and requires a lifelong commitment.

Education is Key to Success

Now that we’ve explored the meaning of the statement, education is key to success , let’s look at some benefits of being well-educated that will help you meet with success in life.

By developing your knowledge-base through diverse and multi-dimensional academic opportunities and life experiences, you are expanding your mind and opening doors to your future.

For example :

  • Traveling across the country will give you great perspective about how people co-exist in different kinds of communities. You’ll learn first-hand about geographical and weather variations in the United States. You’ll be expanding your knowledge-base far beyond anything that could happen in a classroom. When will you be off on your next adventure ?
  • Volunteering in your community will help you develop an awareness of what’s happening in your little part of the world and how you can promote positive change. You’ll learn about the politics of your community and the generational traditions of its people. Again, the first-hand knowledge you gain while being among the people can’t be matched in a classroom. You are learning via authentic community engagement .
  • Enrolling in classes at the local community college will open your mind to opportunities and career choices. You may happen upon a new topic that interests you and decide to make a career change. The college experience alone will provide you with many learning experiences even outside of the classrooms. This is one part of your intellectual wellness .
  • Choosing a new hobby will even help you develop knowledge and enhance your educational experiences. You’ll need to read directions, comprehend tutorials, talk with people, purchase supplies, and problem solve as you learn a new skill. You’ll learn about taking pride in your work and feeling accomplished when you finish a project. These emotions are important to your emotional intelligence.

Remember, ALL of these life choices. opportunities, and experiences are part of your education. You are developing knowledge daily.

Now let’s look at some specific benefits of education (both formal and informal) that have been proven to help you succeed in life:

  • education promotes an awareness of the world around you;
  • education is a resource for developing skills that help you advance in the world;
  • education helps you develop the confidence and knowledge to achieve your dreams;
  • education gives provides you with the ability to be financially responsible;
  • education helps develop flexible thinking skills;
  • education provides you opportunities to explore your creative thoughts and ideas;
  • education helps build your social circle;
  • education promotes an exchange of ideas:
  • education is a source of self-identification;
  • education promotes the development of your authentic self;
  • education helps develop a nation of successful, intelligent people who can care for themselves;
  • education builds confidence and resilience;
  • education empowers you to thrive on competition and success;
  • education ensures you have control over your life in the for of financial intelligence; 
  • education increases your earning potential;
  • education gives you opportunities to learn about conflict resolution;
  • education helps convert ideas into reality;
  • education supports a growth mindset ;
  • education promotes morality and good citizenship;
  • education improves critical thinking and problem solving skills;
  • education makes it possible for intelligent debate;
  • education leads to innovation;
  • education develops risk-takers and curiosity;
  • education lessens the challenges you will face in life;
  • education promotes emotional intelligence .

Sharpen your skills, develop and maintain your determination, set big goals, and work hard until you meet with the success you want to have in life.

And remember, your academic skills and your life experiences make up your education!

Enjoy your journey in life and understand that education is key to success.

What is Success?

Let’s briefly discuss the meaning of success since we have used the term so much in this article. What exactly is success?

Lifehack , one of my favorite websites, has a great article that talks about 19 new definitions of success for the 21st century. These include such accomplishments as:

  • always doing your best and believing you can;
  • managing a healthy balance between work and home;
  • understanding the difference between want and need ;
  • learning something new everyday and continually improving yourself;
  • setting goals and achieving them.

Maybe some of these ideas resonated with you. I believe success looks different for everyone. One size does not always fit all.

People who do TED Talks about the topic of success also believe that success can look different for different folks. These are some ideas about the meaning of success from those highly successful speakers:

  • success is a constant journey of rise and falls, not a one way street;
  • success is that tingle of excitement about what you do;
  • success is sticking with what’s important through tough times;
  • success is creating happiness and fulfillment in your life;
  • success is living a life you can be proud of.

Let me also include the definition of success from the Merriam-Webster Dictionary : 1) the fact of getting or achieving wealth, respect, or fame; 2) the correct or desired result of an attempt; 3) a favorable or desired outcome.

There are obviously many ideas about the meaning of success! I’ll leave you to determine what success means to you! Do you believe education is key to success? What does success look like to you?

Who Said Education is Key to Success?

George Washington Carver and Nelson Mandela have both written or spoken about the idea that education is key to success. Given their specific life circumstances, it is easy to see why and how they would believe education is key to success.

Education is the Key to Success by Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela (1918-2013) has been credited with the concept that education is key to success. He rightly said, “From the poorest of countries to the richest of nations, education is the key to moving forward in any society.” He also said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

These are powerful words coming from a man in difficult circumstances. As a political leader and activist in South Africa, he wanted to see the people of his country prosper and change. He was tackling institutionalized racism and fostering racial reconciliation. Under those circumstances people needed to be educated in social justice.

Education is Key to Success: George Washington Carver

Similarly, George Washington Carver (1864-1943) believed that “Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom.” He believed that education gives us all the knowledge we need to change the world. If we are educated, then wherever we go, or whatever we do, we can do it with much confidence and perfection. Thus, he has also been credited with the concept of education is key to success .

Education is the Key to Success Quotes

Many prominent historians, psychologists, educators, and others have written or spoken about the importance of education. Let’s look at a few more inspirational quotes about education is key to success .

“Education is the key to opportunity. It’s a ticket out of poverty.” ~George H. W. Bush
“Education is the key to self-development and empowerment.” ~Lailah Gifty Akita
“A good education is the foundation for a better future.” ~Elizabeth Warren
“Education is not a name of any degree or certificate that can be shown to others as a proof. Education is the name of our attitude, actions, language, and behavior with others in real life.” ~Barrack Obama
“The key to long-term success in life is your education and skills, your life experiences, and most of all, your personal character.” ~Robert T. Kiyosaki
“I believe the American dream is still alive and that education and entrepreneurship together are its key enablers. Through the years I have observed the power of this combination when the two forces work in tandem. Together they lead to personal success, business success, and societal success.” ~Ralph De La Vega
“Education is not the learning of facts, rather it’s the training of the mind to think.” ~Albert Einstein

two people sit outside with a laptop and some learning materials and the laptop projects the word LEARNING on the screen with multiple different icons related to education is key to success

Education is Not the Key to Success

There are also people who do not believe education is key to success. In some cases, those people are referring to a formal, higher education following the regular K-12 school years. And I absolutely agree that a formal, higher education is not necessary to be successful. However, I obviously believe that education is key to success in regard to the totality of formal and informal learning that equates to education . So I don’t always agree with people who say education is not the key to success.

I strongly believe I have made my case very clear that education is key to success, given that we are educated by our life experiences and mere existence in the world, as well as our formal schooling. Do you agree?

Final Thoughts: Education is Key to Success

Is education a key to success? I hope we can agree that education makes a difference in society as well in the personal lives of those who want a successful future.

I believe education is key to success because it allows people the opportunity to have a better future, plus develop the skills they need to follow their dreams.

Investing time and energy into taking your academic education seriously, as well as experiencing life to the fullest, are valuable measures for anyone who wants to reach their fullest potential and be successful.

I hope you have found value in this article and understand the importance of education — both formal and informal. I encourage you to remember to take time everyday to learn something new and appreciate every learning opportunity!

Sassy Sister Stuff Accessibility Statement

Accessibility Statement

  • June 18, 2024

Compliance status

We firmly believe that the internet should be available and accessible to anyone, and are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability.

To fulfill this, we aim to adhere as strictly as possible to the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) at the AA level. These guidelines explain how to make web content accessible to people with a wide array of disabilities. Complying with those guidelines helps us ensure that the website is accessible to all people: blind people, people with motor impairments, visual impairment, cognitive disabilities, and more.

This website utilizes various technologies that are meant to make it as accessible as possible at all times. We utilize an accessibility interface that allows persons with specific disabilities to adjust the website’s UI (user interface) and design it to their personal needs.

Additionally, the website utilizes an AI-based application that runs in the background and optimizes its accessibility level constantly. This application remediates the website’s HTML, adapts Its functionality and behavior for screen-readers used by the blind users, and for keyboard functions used by individuals with motor impairments.

If you’ve found a malfunction or have ideas for improvement, we’ll be happy to hear from you. You can reach out to the website’s operators by using the following email [email protected] .

Screen-reader and keyboard navigation

Our website implements the ARIA attributes (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) technique, alongside various different behavioral changes, to ensure blind users visiting with screen-readers are able to read, comprehend, and enjoy the website’s functions. As soon as a user with a screen-reader enters your site, they immediately receive a prompt to enter the Screen-Reader Profile so they can browse and operate your site effectively. Here’s how our website covers some of the most important screen-reader requirements, alongside console screenshots of code examples:

Screen-reader optimization: we run a background process that learns the website’s components from top to bottom, to ensure ongoing compliance even when updating the website. In this process, we provide screen-readers with meaningful data using the ARIA set of attributes. For example, we provide accurate form labels; descriptions for actionable icons (social media icons, search icons, cart icons, etc.); validation guidance for form inputs; element roles such as buttons, menus, modal dialogues (popups), and others. Additionally, the background process scans all of the website’s images and provides an accurate and meaningful image-object-recognition-based description as an ALT (alternate text) tag for images that are not described. It will also extract texts that are embedded within the image, using an OCR (optical character recognition) technology. To turn on screen-reader adjustments at any time, users need only to press the Alt+1 keyboard combination. Screen-reader users also get automatic announcements to turn the Screen-reader mode on as soon as they enter the website.

These adjustments are compatible with all popular screen readers, including JAWS and NVDA.

Keyboard navigation optimization: The background process also adjusts the website’s HTML, and adds various behaviors using JavaScript code to make the website operable by the keyboard. This includes the ability to navigate the website using the Tab and Shift+Tab keys, operate dropdowns with the arrow keys, close them with Esc, trigger buttons and links using the Enter key, navigate between radio and checkbox elements using the arrow keys, and fill them in with the Spacebar or Enter key.Additionally, keyboard users will find quick-navigation and content-skip menus, available at any time by clicking Alt+1, or as the first elements of the site while navigating with the keyboard. The background process also handles triggered popups by moving the keyboard focus towards them as soon as they appear, and not allow the focus drift outside of it.

In addition, education is not only about gaining knowledge and skills, but also about understanding of ethics, which will help you become a better person.

Educational institutions can be the catalyst for social change by empowering people who might otherwise be left behind. With education, it is possible for all anyone to succeed.

Education is the key factor for success.

Education gives us knowledge of skills and ethics that has been there in the world which we learn as it helps us to progress further. Nowadays, education is thought of as a way of life where one can not only learn but also share their knowledge with others.

Education Isn’t The Key To Success



education is the key to future success

Or at least, that’s what I used to think.

With the prohibitive costs of education and the high rate of unemployment and underemployment, it’s easy to see why education may not be the best investment for ourselves, even when the contrary has been what our parents have so zealously tried to inculcate into our minds. This argument becomes even more potent because of figures like Steve Jobs, Oprah, and Steven Spielberg, who have found success in their chosen endeavors despite not having university degrees.

Many people who have found success without a university degree say that all you really need in order to make it is resilience and a good work ethic. And while they aren’t wrong in that sentiment, there’s just one problem. Resilience and a good work ethic are not things that are inherent in people in the same way that bravery and courage are not inherent in soldiers.

Education Is More Than Just Knowledge

With the rise of the internet, we have gained unprecedented access to all types of information. And while it can be argued that we have also been exposed to misinformation, a user that is able to discern correct information from bad is bound to learn just as much, if not more, than if he were taught these lessons at school.

But therein lies the first misconception about education. We put so much emphasis on the knowledge that we can acquire in school and we end up overlooking the habits that we can build in school. As so eloquently put by Roman writer Publius Renatus: “ Few men are born brave. Many become so through training and force of discipline. ”

It’s true that resilience and a good work ethic are core ingredients for success, but the question now is where can you build these traits completely? The answer? School.

The Culture Of No Excuses

It’s also in school where students are often faced with requirements. And let’s get things straight. Most employers require applicants to have a degree in order for them to even be considered for a job. This is one requirement.

Life as a professional is peppered with due dates, tasks, duties, and of course, standards that need to be met and if possible, surpassed. Again, another requirement.

The real world is full of requisites that need to be met, whether it’s in a job application, taking out a loan, or even invoking a right. The education system familiarizes us with the culture of rising to the occasion and meeting requirements. You can even say that school is like a simulation of professional life except in the real world, failing to meet standards often means that you face serious consequences.

So, yes, education may be a pricey investment to make, but there are many measures like student loans and Registered Education Savings Plans ( RESP ) that help parents raise funds for the education of their children.

So, while education may not be the single guaranteed solution that allows us to find success, the habits and the knowledge that are acquired during the pursuit of a degree are what truly build a future. You aren’t defined by your grades, but rather, by your character and your merits.

Explained: Why drone courses are important for your future career growth

Here are some key reasons why drone courses are critical for your career growth..

Listen to Story

Why drone courses are important for your future career growth

In recent years, drone technology gained considerable backing and is now on an upward trajectory, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of making India a drone hub by 2030. In fact, to support the dream of many, in 2021, the Ministry of Civil Aviation introduced a drone manufacturing production-linked incentive scheme. These steps have helped the country become a global player in the field of drone technology. In addition, the landscape is acquiring a lot of momentum due to the substantial backing.

What is a drone course ?

A drone course is a carefully designed programme that teaches students all the basic aspects of drone technology. These courses offer certified training programs that address operation regulations and safety issues, giving students the knowledge and skills they need to work in the sector. In the course, students also learn about fundamental concepts of flight, air traffic control (ATC) protocols, radio telephony, emergency identification and management, as well as drone design.

Drone courses often include hands-on experience with various types of drones and simulators to practice flying skills in a controlled environment. In addition, the government's focus on drone technology under the “Atmanirbhar Bharat” has opened doors to become certified drone pilots, drone assemblers, drone operators, and so on. Thus, enrolling in the drone course will provide you with various job opportunities as well as establish you as a market leader, increasing your chances of success.

Here are some key reasons why drone courses are critical for your career growth mentioned by Professor Ashutosh Pandey, Chair – Corporate Relations & Placement & Associate Professor (Marketing) FORE School of Management:

Better career opportunities: The Ministry of Civil Aviation in 2021 mandated that all drone operators, except for nano drones, must possess a drone licence and certificate. The inclusion of demand-driven training courses is mandated by the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020. Therefore, drone technology has the potential to revolutionise a variety of sectors.

In fields like management, science, engineering and medicine, students have the opportunity to get experience with drone technology. This hands-on approach helps cultivate innovation and equips them for roles in industries where drones play a role.

Drone technology is also helpful in surveillance and monitoring, healthcare, logistics, disaster management, infrastructure surveying, urban development, structural analysis, crop growth mapping and monitoring. Consequently, these sectors are vigorously seeking skilled individuals who can effectively harness the power of technology and deliver exclusive outcomes, leading to organisational success. Thus, by enrolling in this course, you not only improve your employment prospects but also become successful in the field of study.

Competitive advantage: In this competitive business world, possessing a unique skill set is what sets one apart. Drone expertise enhances students' employability for employers who are interested in obtaining business intelligence with drones.

With businesses progressively on the hunt for candidates capable of using new-age tools, having the expertise in operating and utilising drones can give you a competitive edge over other job applicants. Additionally, staying informed about advancements in drone technology can help businesses adapt and innovate their drone applications for future success. As a result, opting for a drone course emerged as a smart move to gain a competitive advantage, setting the stage for future success.

Preparing for the future: Owing to their capacity to fly and gather immense amounts of information quickly and simply, drones are becoming a game-changer for everyone. Drones play various roles, including parcel delivery and aerial photography, in everyday operations.
