Picture a guy of a middle class family who has just lost his father because the family couldn’t afford to spare the sum for his operation. Ask him or try to convince him to pursue education and he’d immediately ask you what he could possibly get from obtaining a degree. And what exactly do we say to convince him? That it’ll increase the literacy rate of this country… a’H possibly “surely” make you a better person.
Who gets the benefits from the development and technological advances it’s obviously not 4 the people belonging to the middle class, Bereft of electricity, clean drinking water and proper roads forget about higher education majority of our countrymen cannot afford basic education because in our country it will not even get u a decent job so most people don’t bother with that either.
Let me tell you an about an incident, an international organization started a project in the rural areas of Sindh. The purpose was to provide the people with the basic education, mainly to write letters, applications, the basic calculations and a few sentences and words of English language, when a father of a ten year old boy found him eager to join the program he thrashed him and cursed the teacher for putting fancy ideas into the boy’s head. He forbids his son from studying,” “Education is useless for us. My child will help me in my work, which will eventually help us earn our livelihood.”
Not everybody can afford to study in the private institutions, no doubt after getting a degree from any such institution You’ll be able to earn a good amount of money n you’ll get a decent job at your doorstep, some of my friends will say that there are people who cannot afford, even then after studying from a very average school they do well and are awarded scholarships for their higher studies but tell me how many are they? how many of them can be amongst the position holders, it means that a person who cannot afford to study in a private institution must necessarily be an exceptional one. Kisi nay sach hi kaha hai paisa paisay ko khenchta hai.
Some people think that there is no relation between education and earning money to some extent it’s true but if u look at the issue practically you’ll see a different scenario education does contribute towards the development of one’s personality but who will spend years of his life studying just for the development of his personality if he knows that it wouldn’t help him feed his family.
I welcome you all to comment on this issue, don’t forget to mention whether you’re supporting the statement or you’re against it.
