There are many stages of a child’s life that drives him/her towards a better future. One such important stage which has huge impact on a child’s future is his/her primary education. Primary education serves as the basis for everything that a child does in his/her later life.
But before coming on the topic, let us discuss about what is primary education all about? Primary education is actually the basic, elementary education which is provided upto standard VIII. It can also be defined as the first stage of compulsory education as it is compulsory for people to receive atleast primary education. The main aim of primary education is to provide basic literacy to all pupils.
Now, coming on the topic, we will talk about primary education in two ways, effect of primary education in terms of studies and moral education. Now, if we talk about studies, these initial years of education bring in clarity of concepts for the children which serve as the base for their later years of education. The most common example which can be given in this case is that in our primary classes we hardly pay any attention to the basics of English language like grammar. When we grow up, most of us go back to those very primary English books to clear our concepts so that we can improve our communication skills. Similarly, we see many students around us everyday who are not able to comprehend what they are being taught just because their basics are poor. Thus, in this way the elementary education creates a huge impact on the future of children and serves as the base for better future of children.
Now, if we talk about primary education in terms of moral education, we see that primary education serves as the base for better future of children in terms of morality also. When a little child starts going to school, this is the first time when he/she starts knowing the good and evils of the world on his/her own. This growing age of a child is very crucial as without knowing the difference between good and bad and right and wrong, a child tends to divert towards wrong, evil means. The elementary education given to children at this time certainly serves as the base for better and joyful future for them. Education at this stage is just like shaping a pot during its making. We can mould the pot anyway we like. The whole personality of a child in future depends on the shape that we give him/her at this elementary stage. Therefore, primary education in terms of moral education, certainly serves as the base for better future.
Primary education not only acts as a base for better future of little children but also for the whole country as a whole. The government of our country has made primary education compulsory for all the people. This is because primary education is the foundation on which the development of every citizen depends and the development of citizens of a country means development of the nation as a whole. Thus, primary education serves as the base for better future of the whole nation also. This shows that how important primary education is in our lives.
To conclude, primary education, definitely, serves as the base for the better future, not only of people but nation as a whole. It makes our concepts clear which help us in our later education and also helps us in becoming good and responsible citizens in future.
