Why education is one of the most powerful weapons to transform society

Education is one of the most powerful weapons -- it can change people, communities, entire nations and the future of humanity.

Nelson Mandela has rightly said that 'Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.' Yes, education is the key to eliminate all problems. If you want to grow and be sucessful then you need to be educated!

Education provides you the tools to improve the quality of life in modern society both economically and sociologically. Education is power and no one can ever deny this fact. Education has the power to change your entire life. Starting from promoting gender equality to reducing poverty, it is one gesture in which you receive information and give systematic instructions in return.



So in order to be successful, you need education.

Learning is a never-ending process, every human being keeps on learning till the end of life. Learning modifies your thinking capabilities and conception. Thus, your ideas keep changing due to it. You break the pre-conceived barriers with changing mindsets. This change helps you to interact with others. You feel free to express your ideas and this is how education changes you.

Society is made of up different kinds of people and the mindset of each of them differs a lot. An educated one can guide to the right path in a better manner, he/she can come up with a variety of ideas which may be related to political participation, social equality or environmental sustainability. So it is pretty much clear that the power of knowledge can help you walk in the right path, take the right decision and can help you in bringing the change that you always wanted.



Every problem comes with a solution but sometimes problem-solving can be difficult and tedious. An educated person will always try to find the answer to the questions 'what?', 'why?' and 'how?'. This very attitude will help him/her solve problems.

Poverty and education are very much related to each other because people living in poverty may stop going to school so they can work, which leaves them without literacy and numeracy skills, which anyhow effects their careers. Hence, education increases individual earnings and put an end to your lifelong sufferings.

The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any said Alice Walker.


Educated people know what is right and what is wrong. So if something is going wrong anywhere, then an educated person has the courage to raise voice against the injustice. Truly educated people will not refuse to stand up against injustice.

Even Union HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal 'Nishank' in the 57th convocation of IIT said that education is a 'weapon' which can transform the lives of students, their families and society.

Hence it is rightly said that education can change people, communities, entire nations, and even the future of humanity.
