the importance of education in developing countries

Despite great progress in the past few years, children are denied education. We must understand that education and development go hand in hand. The Role of education in developing countries is a very important one as lack of education causes poverty and slow economic development of a country especially if the country is a developing country. Education is very important for everyone it’s a primary need of any individual, every girl or boy child should have the right to quality education so that they can have better chances in life, including employment opportunities, and better health.


The role of education in poverty reduction is huge. Some advantages of education are: it boosts economic growth and increases the GDP of a country. It even reduces infant mortality rate, increases human life expectancy. Education is an important investment in a country as there are huge benefits. Education guarantees lifetime income; it promotes peace and reduces drop-out rates from schools and colleges and encourages healthy competition. Many children dropout form colleges as they are not aware of the advantages of college education.Education helps in making the right decisions at the time of conflicts.


These days school students are restricted only to academics. We also need to ensure that school education equips children with necessary life skills. Special focus needs to be given the most vulnerable and groups (including children living in slums, children with disabilities, and girls) who are most likely to be affected because of lack of well-trained teachers, inadequate learning materials, and unsuitable education infrastructure. Good teachers are a very important ingredient in every Childs education. Educated girls and women tend to be healthier, earn more income and provide better health care for themselves and their future children and these benefit also are transmittes from generation to generation and across communities at large, making girl's education one of the best investments a country can make.


In India, a combination of discrimination, social attitudes, poverty, lack of political will, and poor quality of human and material resources leave children with disabilities more vulnerable to being excluded from education. It is essential that societies adapt their education systems to ensure that these children can get educated and have a better future.


Children who have access to quality educational programs perform better and are successful in their lives. It is vital that the education system in developing countries must be built in such a way that students apply their minds in the development of their country.


Access to education can improve the economic and financial lifestyle of citizens and determine the prospects of future generations, especially in developing countries. However, achieving these goals is complicated. Policymakers have implemented various measures to increase access to education but the results are mixed.
