Dont take education for granted

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Don't take education for granted Imagine. You're asleep in your warm cosy bed, comfortably wrapped in your soft silky duvet cover and you're dreaming about Christiano Ronaldo, until a loud piercing sound awakes you from your comfort. Its 6:30 in the morning and your alarm is blaring in your face forcing you to get ready for school. How many of us feel like this every single morning? Every day we have to go through 7 long periods of lessons, annoying teachers that get on your nerves and endless amounts of homework. This is school, isn't it? We all find that in our daily lives, school is a burden. But have any of us actually thought that school may not be a bad thing, that it may not be a burden? You, me, all of us here, even Miss Mitchell have no choice. We're all part of a system. A system we can't get out of, a system we have to go through, but ironically it's a system we all take for granted. ...read more.

It's not fair. You and me are part of this lucky 38%, but yet we wish we were the other 62! Why? Why do we feel the need to hate school? The problem with us kids these days is that we are constantly thirsty for more and along the way forgetting what we have. None of us want to be here listening to these speeches, we would rather be at home sleeping, watching TV or on Facebook right? But by you coming to school, sitting in lessons even listening to these speeches can help you. Who knows where we would be in the future, without education. Receiving an education itself sets stepping stones for us to walk on. Two thirds of all jobs require a higher education, or advanced training. Without a good primary education, you are less likely to keep up with your peers. Without a high school diploma, you're likely to earn a salary three times less than average, and without a college degree it's harder and harder to find a job that can help you support your family when you're older. ...read more.

Conclusion

You're asleep in your warm cosy bed, comfortably wrapped in your soft silky duvet cover and you're dreaming about Christiano Ronaldo, until a loud piercing sound awakes you from your comfort. Its 6:30 in the morning and your alarm is blaring in your face forcing you to get ready for school. Now how do you feel? Every day you are waking up to a crucial chapter of your life. A chapter which will lead you to experience the world in a whole new light, a chapter which will give you the chance to make your dreams reality and a chapter that will give you respect. Education gives us the prospect to grow up in a world with no limits to our dreams and I know for a fact that in every single one of you there is something special, and that special something is needed in our world. Whether you're the next Bill Gates, Einstein or Barack Obama, what you know today is what you are tomorrow. ...read more.
