Knowledge is the main driving force of modern society. It is a source of power and competitive advantages in work and life. The world has never developed at such a rapid pace. The model of going to college to gain knowledge for life is outdated. If you want to succeed today and stay ahead of the race for improvement and change, it is essential to upgrade your knowledge and skills continually.
Education should not be elitist, locked behind branded University walls, high price tags, and within the minds of professors and teachers. As John Dewey poignantly explains, knowledge is a human right. “Education is not preparation for life. Education is life.”
Achieving merit and ability is only possible through education. Education plays a significant role in propelling individuals towards upward social mobility, but As Sonya Sotomayer so beautifully articulates, ‘Until we get equality in education, we won’t have an equal society” We are far from a level playing field if those without advantage can not access knowledge to participate. What kind of hegemoneous society do we have if only those with opportunity represent and lead us?
