We, Parents commonly say education is the only legacy we can bequeath our children. We work and strive hard to make both ends meet just to put our children into good schools. We are their first educators; we are responsible to train them the fundamental learning skills by instilling the foundation of good moral character, discipline, values and how to interact with others to prepare them to their formal studies.
Edification is a fruitful and beneficial factor in a person’s life. By means of learning, one’s capabilities and potential can be harnessed to the fulllest. It equips us to become a whole person to gain confidence in making crucial decisions, to face what life has to bring, to accept loses, failures and successes. In our family, it is only Yahmir who is still studying, he'll be in first year in junior high school this school year. My husband, my eldest son and I are graduates of different courses. JM still will pursue on taking up a masteral degree that could add color and employer attraction to his cv template to achieve his dream of getting a more promising job in the future which I am very happy about.
It is sad to see street children who never had experience going to school, or had stopped to pursue their studies due to life’s hardships or lose of interest; they are merely not aware that schooling is equally important with our basic needs. As far as I know every person, whether rich or poor should not be deprived of acquiring wisdom to know the world around us, to become more productive in building opinions and wise decisions to achieve better accomplishments.
Education does not stop after graduating, self learning continues for more opportunities and a wider choice of jobs.
