Expert Answer:

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” These are the words of the great leader Nelson Mandela who believed that education is an instrument of social change.


Looking at human history, we can see that we have come a long way. Man has struggled with the evils of ignorance and has labored under the curse of blind faith. It took his unquenchable thirst for knowledge and his insatiable curiosity to deliver himself from the dark ages into the age of progress and brilliance. It is knowledge has helped us to perceive the world around us and banish ignorance.

In my opinion, education is an essential factor for every human being to make a mark in this world. It helps people gain respect and opens new doors of opportunities for them. Our society today benefits greatly from education. Human life is greatly enriched and this helps in the progress and evolution of our society. It is an indispensible part of our lives.

Unfortunately today, education is a privilege reserved only for a few and is denied to many. Social inequality is responsible for this injustice. Earlier, factors such as class, caste and gender caused hindrance to the spread of education. The rich were the only ones who were able to afford education. The upper caste people thought of it as their sole privilege. Women were deliberately kept away from education since the society believed that women cannot achieve any academic glory.

Today the situation is much better; due to the tireless endeavours of many great souls, education is available many. This is to not say that we are successful; a lot of gaps are still to be filled. Organisations like UNESCO have strived towards achieving this objective.

In order to make education available to all we must undertake the following measures.

Firstly, education should be made available at the grass-root level and young children must be encouraged to attend schools. Primary education should be made compulsory and free for all. Secondly, vocational education that gives people essential skills to survive in the society should be imparted to all. Thirdly, governments should focus on achieving gender equality as far as education is concerned. Orthodox views about women not needing education should be banished. Finally, governments should ensure that quality education is imparted to the citizens through good study material and qualified staff.

Through these small steps, we can hope for a golden future where everybody can reap the benefits of education and contribute to the progress of the society.
