A good education for the future leaders of our country is a critical element of our society. The question is what elements within our education system create an environment for achieving a good education. There are undoubtedly differences of opinion of what these elements are but one thing for certain is it includes the opportunity to utilize and understand the technological advances now developing sometimes on a daily basis.
We are in a technological age unlike any other in our history. It is important that our educational system evolve into the technological environment to allow students to become familiar with computers, computer programs and the Internet. It is important for students in any educational environment to understand how to utilize the opportunities the Internet provides.
Another element of a good education involves the quality, knowledge and capability of the instructor (s) students have for the subjects they are assigned. Individuals who teach must not only have the knowledge and capability they need to have the desire to make a difference in the lives of those they teach. There many fine teachers in our educational system but when a teacher has the desire which many do to teach it shows in the quality of subjects they teach. This is often displayed in the methods they use to make their points on their subjects.
Like adults each student learns at a different pace. This need must be adapted to reach the individual student to not only meet their needs but the needs of society. Our society needs all kinds of individuals with all kinds of talents. These talents are inherent in every individual whether you are physically fit or have disabilities. Each individual has a right to fit in the workplace and if an individual can do the job they have the right to be given that chance. It is true today there is much competition for each job but this is where a good education can make a difference. Educational institutions that prepares all students with the knowledge and capabilities to succeed in the workforce they can level the field to give each individual the chance to succeed. This is not only what makes a good education but a great one.
Education is a critical element of our society and it is important that the quality of our educational system involves providing a good education for all students. The foundation of our institutions which prepare future leaders has a huge responsibility. It must adapt to the needs of each individual they teach to better prepare them to enter society and be a productive addition.
