The teen years are said to be the most free and happiest period of ones life. You get to do many things in your teen years and most importantly, teen years are full of freedom as you do not have many responsibilities as adults do.
However, there is one most important thing in the lives of children, especially in their teen years. It is nothing else other than Education. Education as defined in the Oxford dictionary is a process of teaching, training and learning especially in schools and colleges, to improve knowledge and develop skills. Hence education can be said to be the main (and probably the only) responsibility of those children in their teen years.
You might wonder why education is so important in the lives of teens. Well, there are plenty of reasons why it is so. This article therefore aims to explain those reasons that prove the significance of education in the lives of teenagers.
Listed and explained below are some of the main points that show the significance or importance of education.
Provides knowledge and information
The first and the most important fact about education is that it provides teenagers (and even adults) insight on various topics and areas such as Math, Science, Religion, Health, Social Science, Geography, and many more subjects belonging to different fields and disciplines.
Education also helps in improving the Intelligence Quotient (IQ) of the child. The main reason for this is because, when the child/ teenager learn subjects such as Math, Logic, and Statistics, their brains develop in such a manner that they are able to think and solve problems in the best or at worst in a much better way.
Helps make/ take quality decisions
The knowledge gained through good and effective education helps children/ teenagers to better evaluate a problem and take/ make better quality decisions. Hence, this would help the lives of those teenagers to be full of light, fun and prosperity.
Helps in their future
Education lay down the base or foundation (platform) that enables teenagers to build their future (lives) upon. The simple idea of this phrase is that proper higher education would help them find suitable jobs and earn a living, thus enabling them to live in a much enjoyable and comfy manner. Most people of late are unemployed due to the fact that they are not educated, or educated enough, which makes it merely impossible for them to find a suitable job. So as teens, priority should be given to education as it holds great significance in their lives and in their future.
