The Function of Education

“The function of education is to

teach one to think intensively

and to think critically,

intelligence plus character-

that is the goal of true education.”

Martin Luther King Jr.  


As I see it. . . . . . . .


The function of education . . . .


True education prepares you to successful function and complete in a completive business environment, in life and to develop the social skills to effectively interact with others. 


There are multiple parts to effective education.


There needs to be a teacher willing to educate and mentor the student to the best of their ability and being out the best in the student


The student needs to be a receptive and be willing to open their mind to education and to effectively apply their knowledge.


But most important for the education of the younger generation are the parents.


The parents need to be there to encourage their children to learn and recognize their full potential in order for the children to full fill their destiny. Parents are a critical component in supporting the education process for their children and to become an active participant in their education.


Where there is no effective education there is no progress in a person’s life and the person’s life becomes unfulfilled.


An educated person has the advantage of knowledge, skills and gains the advantage of applying them with confidence.


The function of education is to create a strategic advantage. It prepares you to maximize you abilities and to reach your full potential and to live your destiny.

It seems that the development of intelligence plus character seems to be ebbing in today's society. Character in business is coming into question more and more these days. Thanks for sharing!

Intelligence plus character -- how true, you need both.  If you could have only one, I would say 'character'.  Have a great day, Eric ^0-0^

Martin Luther King was correct. Without the foundation of education, many people will not succeed.
