Currently, the condition of the world during the COVID-19 pandemic is getting worse day by day. Even though some countries have started over their activity for almost all of their sectors, they keep following the health protocol. As result, the number of the face-to-face meeting and learning processes is limited to online school and meetings. This is used to minimize the virus transmission from one patient without symptoms to other healthy people.
Especially in this condition, the education system makes the biggest differences in its system and curriculum. This happens because online schooling is less effective than offline or face-to-face schooling. As result, the quality of the students decreases along with the number of offline classes. If this condition happens for a long duration, the students can decrease almost all of some education category including knowledge, communication ability, problem-solving ability, analytical thinking, and also attitude.
Almost all teachers and schools maybe face the same crisis in the past 1 year. They cannot make real interaction with the students that will help them to understand the course easier than before. Moreover, the limited communication online also gives a big impact on them to deliver the message from teacher to students.
Why Does Education Important?
Most people must agree that education is important for everyone in all sectors. Starting from formal and nonformal education, courses, education foundation, and school, all kind of education is very useful for everyone who studies about it. The learning process also keeps going from time to time. There is no limitation to the duration of learning. This happens because the learning process can be done anywhere not only at school but also at home, street, and many more.
For some countries, they put education as one of the people’s rights and the government of the country must facilitate them to get a better education. Each country relies on each other to make the most skillful citizen build a strong country. Even, the county put education as one of the important things they have to do. Another reason are:
- Education is the basic skill that everyone must have to face in real life. Education does not only teach students about theories but also skills that they may need in the future. Even, you can easily compare people with and without education. The non-educated person can be recognized easily.
- Education builds people’s mindsets slowly. When children started their education from kindergarten, the teacher slowly also builds their mindset through education. It may be unseen because the teacher did not tell it by word, but they change the mindset through their action. As the owner of purest heart and mind, children can easily follow what they have seen and heard before at school. So, it is important to put your children in the best school since they were young.
Also, putting children at a certain education level also makes them more careful about the environment around them. Especially for children who spend more time at home by themselves only and lack socialization with the other, they tend to be more selfish and do not care about the condition around them. By education, the children can slowly learn and realize that they do not live alone, but there are many people around.
How To Make Differences Through The Education?
There are so many things to make difference through education that can affect the students, the communities, or even the country. However, it needs a long process to do. We can do several things such as:
- Put the children in any education foundation or school as early as possible to make them more eager to realize the importance of education for them. The sooner, the better the children will get the knowledge and skill from them.
- Improve critical thinking to make better innovation and solutions for the problem faced by the government. Commonly the problems are about the number of public schools that still far from expectation, the quality of the teacher, school facility, and many more.
- Provide open donations is also important to make difference through education. Our humanity sense will be sharpened by this action. Donations can help the education process in poor area to better than before.
