Logically, their next questions are “Why must they get an education?” and “Why is Education important?” To these questions, we often answer with great and pride and wisdom “Education is important because it will prepare you to go out into the world and accomplish anything that you set your mind to do.” This reply often sets the stage for motivation and achievement in school.
