The Purpose of Education

What is the actual purpose of education? This question demands

us to ruminate upon the years of structured learning and testing

that bestows us with the stature of being ’Educated’.

The discourse on the purpose of education never seems to

terminate. An ensuing question that follows is that ‘Should

people become educated to gain capabilities for entering the

workforce, or should they be nurtured towards becoming

responsible citizens through social, economic, cultural and

intellectual development eleanor roosevelt once

intellectual development?’. Eleanor Roosevelt once quoted in a

1930 article, "Good Citizenship: The Purpose of Education".

Another prevalent question that comes up in the minds of

students is that ‘Why am I learning to solve such complicated

and tricky mathematical/scientific problems that will be of

slight use in real life?’. The answer is fairly simple. Apart from

the substantial usage of such problems in mathematical and

scientific discoveries, the main purpose of having such problems

is to strengthen one’s mind to enhance/expand skills such as

mental, numerical, analytical so that they are well placed to

face any challenge of life hands-on.

The most acknowledged purpose of education has been to direct

people towards the full realization of human intellect and its

capabilities. In the present day, the purpose of education has

reformed from that of producing a literate society to that of

producing a learning society. Let’s take a look at some of the

Key objectives of Education:

in true sense education sets the foundation

In true sense, Education sets the Foundation for achieving

Success in any sphere of life. It develops individuals into prolific

citizens who use their knowledge, talent and learned skills to

sustain themselves while pushing the human race forward in

areas of equality, justness and harmony.

Famous psychologists suggest that Education should not only

teach children civic knowledge but it should also inculcate civic

skills, which include respecting others, sensitive towards

environment, fellow beings, flora & fauna, working in

collaboration, conducting oneself in a way that is fair and being

a responsible participant of the community.

Education helps us unfold the hidden layers of our being through

the realization our potential and talents. It helps us tap into

latent talent, so that we can sharpen our skills. It helps the

world to produce marvelous scientists that innovate and produce

futuristic novelties.

On the surface level, education is much regarded as a medium

to gain sufficient academic qualification to get suitable

employment at a later stage. As one moves ahead on the path of

learning, their remuneration or salary becomes their market

value based on the education level and background. For

instance, an IIT Graduate is more likely to be offered a higher

salary package than any other engineering graduate from other

Indian Universities.

We must bear in our minds that, ‘’those who amass enough

education, steer the path of development and progress for

their country’’. It is these individuals who become teachers,

scientists, inventors, welfare activists, soldiers and politicians

who work together as the backbone of society.

As famously quoted by Swami Vivekananda, ‘’ Education is the

manifestation of perfection already in man. Like fire in a piece

of flint, knowledge exists in the mind. Suggestion is the friction;

which brings it out.’’ This evokes that the purpose of education

is only limited to the amount of knowledge our minds

accumulate!
