The word education is derived from educare (Latin) “bring up”, which is related to educere “bring out”, “bring forth what is within”, “bring out potential” and ducere, “to lead”. In ancient Greece, Socrates argued that education was about drawing out what was already within the student. (As many of you know, the word education comes […]
We are living in an age of science and technology, but many people do not know how to study the sciences. Many students struggle to understand the hard sciences like physics and chemistry, which is why they end up taking these classes over and over again. This section explains how you can learn science more […]

The modern public school system is broken. It’s not just the school itself that is failing us, but also the government and parents who buy into this flawed system. We need to do something about it because our children deserve better than what we’re giving them now. Is Public School really Free? Public schools in […]
Play is an excellent way to learn and has been shown throughout history as a stepping stone for children who want more than just fun. Kid’s play not only entertains them, but also provides opportunities in education with unstructured time spent interacting freely without adult supervision or instruction from teachers.
In recent years there have been many studies done on how kids’ informal games can be used by educators looking at developing skills like creativity through arts & crafts projects while exploring topics such social sciences (economics), geography/geology etc… They are able explore these subjects before they even take any level.
Play and Learn in Pre-K
We all know that kids need to play outside sometimes, but did you realize how important it is for them?
Playing has long become an essential tool through the growth of children.
This is according to Katherine Green, a faculty member from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology.
In fact she says there’s research showing the positive impact this typeof activities can have on literacy skills as well mathematics growth among other things including social competence, regulation and child’s confidence. So when we ask ourselves what should our child be doing during his/her free time – shouldn’t he or she also spend some?
Play and Learn in Kindergarten
Kindergarten is the time when children learn how to work together in teams and on tasks with rules that can be challenged by another player or group. It’s also an opportunity for them explore their creativity while learning new skills such as taking turns, following instructions (even if they’re unclear), sharing things equally among teammates so no one has all of the responsibility put onto him/herself alone–and most importantly: having fun!
The word education is derived from educare (Latin) “bring up”, which is related to educere “bring out”, “bring forth what is within”, “bring out potential” and ducere, “to lead”.
In ancient Greece, Socrates argued that education was about drawing out what was already within the student. (As many of you know, the word education comes from the Latin e-ducere meaning “to lead out.”)
Education is a measure of how well a person has stored and can process information about reality. These are based above all on connections between what is going on in the world and how you deal with it. Education describes both the process of learning and the transfer of knowledge as well as the result, the information skills in a person’s brain.
Is school important?
School attendance has been compulsory in Germany since the 19th century. Before that, education was an accidental good – especially for the social elite.
Today it is actually the task of schools to create educational equality, better said equality of opportunity: all children should have the best possible access to socially recognized positions, jobs, prosperity, power, and political influence.
Today education is free and compulsory for all children – but it is still distributed very differently. Virtually all of the human knowledge can now be found on the Internet for free. Competencies are therefore even more important than knowledge – and wisdom is something else.
Why is education important?
I bet you yourself can think of a few answers straight away when asked why education and school are important …
Let’s do a headstand for this: Imagine that you had no education at all.
Then you would not be able to use this technical device on which you are reading this text.
You couldn’t read at all.
You would not even on the idea come, the question “Why is education important?” To ask.
A social life without education is not possible, especially not with our complex digitalized society in times of climate change
But: a large part of our education is not visible, we have got used to it.
Because: Education is more than what is taught in school – education is the number of skills, knowledge, meaningful behavior that we have learned.
Unfortunately, the corona pandemic has also shown us that public education is still failing in some places: many people do not understand the connections behind a pandemic and prefer to believe in crude conspiracy theories. In addition, there are many people with mental health problems despite high-quality schooling. Despite (and because of) high-tech industry, there are serious environmental crises that threaten our existence as humanity (bee deaths, climate change) – so there is still a lot to be done in our collective education. Do your part!
The importance of education is something that our society hasn’t really grasped its significance yet. The culture you live in, the environment, the people you interact with – all of these factors have a massive impact upon the way you perceive things, in this case, the importance of education.
The real purpose of education is to evolve yourself. Education is meant to help you reach a higher state of being, which is far beyond finishing your higher education, or earning any sort of degrees.
