Essay on adverse effects of education

Answers (1)

Education is important for personal development. Education rears us to become a fine human being and culturally acceptable person. Education is important as most of us earn our livelihood from it. Education is important as we gain the knowledge necessary in leading a meaningful life. Everyday activities involve science, mathematics and languages. We don’t even realise how important a good education is. 

But education has its own effects. In this day and age, the competition in academics is rising. Children are burdened to score better than the rest.  It leads to unhealthy competition amongst peers. It becomes a race to perform better than the rest. This leads to diseases like anxiety as you are anxious to get the best marks. Children get depressed if they cannot keep up with the pressure. Due to such pressures, children fall ill to poor health, which reduces their performance. To score better, students resort to cramming rather than learning the lesson. When you cram up the lesson, you don’t  learn as learning is the basic purpose of education. 

The typical classroom learning can become monotonous and boring. It reduces the creativity of children as young age is where you explore your creative mind. Children miss out on things like travelling and enjoying festivals or functions as they have to devote their time to study. Excessive studying is harmful to children as it takes away their youth. Youth is meant to be enjoyed with studying, dancing, singing, cooking, drawing and playing sports. 

Children should balance their time between study and playing. Both activities have adverse effects  in excess. They should be proportionate with each other. That way you will end up feeling productive and happy, which will lead to learning and scoring better. This is a combined effort of children and parents. Parents should not pressure their children to score better. They should celebrate their child's achievements and counsel them when they make mistakes. They should ask their children to ‘learn’ things . Their relationship should be a friendly one where children are at ease with their parents. We have to know the basic purpose of education which is learning things that make us productive,efficient and a learned person.
