Childish a Favor

Education in its general sense is a form of learning in which the knowledge, skills, and habits of a group of people are transferred from one generation to the next through teaching, training, or research. Education frequently takes place under the guidance of others, but may also be autodidactic. | Photo: | Education, School, Student, Child, Learn, Books, Classroom,

Education in the contemporary world

Contemporary world provides people with many goods. Some of them are able to appreciate this, the others not so, but one thing is sure ' twenty-first century human beings grow less and less interested in gaining knowledge or developing wisdom. However, as Socrates once said, the only good is knowledge and the only evil is ignorance. If one refers this to the issues of Polish educational system, it can be concluded that starting schooling earlier leads to greater wisdom. Poles' offspring should start their education at the age of six and there are countless examples to prove it right.

Time is pursued by many in this world, being a tool that can shape lives and lead careers. Having the opportunity to start education one year earlier gives pupils a chance to develop themselves and gain one year and can help them succeed in their future. Scientific research shows that kids who started attending schools one year earlier than their peers are not only brighter but also more imaginative and agile. Letting a child broaden his mind when it is most flexible and efficient can't do any harm.

What is more, the educational method mentioned in the thesis has been functioning in many other European countries for years with brilliant outcome and test results. One of the lands that approved it was the United Kingdom, where infants start with the Year 1 at the age of five, so even earlier than the one to be introduced in Poland. Rarely can one meet with complaints about schooling in that overseas kingdom. Citizens are content with their careers and happy with the options provided by the government. The previously mentioned educational solution simply cannot not work in Poland, having so many good reviews from the neighboring countries.
Last but not least, Polish children going to schools when aged six could solve many ongoing problems, including financial and parenting ones. The market and the rules that reign on it aren't likely to change anytime soon, which equals young parents being compelled to return to work a year after the birth of the baby unless they wish to be made redundant.

Private nursery schools may be beneficial, yet also expensive. If their offspring had the opportunity to attend a public educational establishment, the issue of money and care would just evaporate and make many lives easier, not to mention the growth of kids' competences.

In order to maintain both the high level of schooling in Poland and the badge of a forward-looking country Polish nation ought to see the good in the homework being done by a six-year-old. As odd as it may seem at first, such a change in the educational system is nothing but vital. Greatness is a sum of small steps, so let's just imagine what would happen if one could start making them a whole year earlier.
