Why Evolution is True by Jerry A. Coyne

Can education change society?


Yes. Education is about learning skills and knowledge. Through education, the knowledge of society and of the world is passed on from generation to generation. This may include:
•    education in morality, for example, learning how to act as a loyal, honest and effective citizen.
•    education in research, for example, finding a cure to a disease. 
•    education in business, for example producing economic growth to improve the standard of living.

 

Can education reduce poverty?


Yes. Education has been proven to reduce poverty, and help improve the standard of living for people in society.

How does education affect development?


Education provides a foundation for development, the basis on which much of our economic and social wellbeing is built. It is vital to increasing social equality and economic efficiency. By increasing the value and efficiency of labour, it helps to raise people out of poverty.


Will education reduce economic inequality?


Education reduces economic inequality as it allows people to get higher paid work, and produce new goods and services that benefit the economy and raise the standard of living for themselves and others.

Education has been found to return $8 to the economy for every $1 spent on it. Not only does it bring economic growth, but it also helps produce new technologies and efficiencies that allow the standard of living to be improved.

Education enhances the individual’s abilities and impacts every area of our lives. It helps in our ability to make decisions, to distinguish between right and wrong, gives you the skills to combat challenges and difficulties, helps develop moral and civic values, provides you better communications skills and helps you to understand others, especially from different life backgrounds.
