Education is important in life because it gives people the skills and tools they need to navigate the world. Without education, people would not be able to read, write, calculate or communicate; they would also not be able to perform jobs competently, accurately and safely. It also teaches people about the world in which they live, including information about history, philosophy and culture.
At its most basic level, education is important because it gives people the baseline skills to survive as adults in the world. These skills include basic literacy and numeracy, as well as the ability to communicate, complete tasks and work with others. It is also essential for nearly every type of job or career, and in many cases, education makes the difference between being able to perform a job safely, accurately and being unable to perform a job at all. However, many people believe that it is important in life for reasons beyond basic survival skills.
Eleanor Roosevelt famously said that it is important to good citizenship because it enables people to contribute to community and country. Others believe that it helps to answer life's big questions, including on how to live, work and love. Still others believed that it teaches people about the world around them.
