My Understanding of the True Meaning of Education
With the rapid development of society, almost everyone wants to be educated.However,many people hold an erroneous:view towards education. They think, probably most parents do, that through education, they will, or their children will; turn out to be either prominent scholars or rich merchants. TO them, education Suggests merely fame or riches.
The aim of education, in my understanding, is set upon deeper and more important mental accomplishments andmoral culture. When we study at school or at the university, we are certainly aiming at a profound learning of various subjects, for that is one of the essential things and a fundamental indispensable for building up our future career. Equally important is the moral education which we must receive＇either at school or at the university, for building*toUr character.
On the other hand, education does not simply mean "going to school."We cannot consider ourselves well-educated and superior just because we are the fortunate ones who can go somewhere to study, thus looking down upon those who cannot get such golden chances as ours. It is a truth universally known that that a doctor is different from a blacksmith is not because the former has received higher education and the latter has not.
To conclude my essay, I would like to quote an old saying "Learn whatever it may be, whenever you can,and you will, "and this, I think, is the true meaning of education.
