Nations developments are measured by their investment in education. Investing in education is, factually, an investment in the future of the nation. No civilization can last without knowledgeable and moral people.
Education provides the public with one of the most powerful weapons to success: knowledge. Ignorance is the enemy of any society; it leaves them vulnerable to the endless challenges of life. Building societies and nations begin with supporting them with the power of knowledge. The fate of any nation and civilization lies in the hands of its future generations. Investing in the education of future generations and their psychological and physical well-being is essential for any nation that wishes to last and continue its developments.
Governments are responsible for providing the means to strong and moral education to all of its citizens. It is also, the government responsibility, to provide completely free education of all levels including high education. Most state universities and colleges in the country have shifted from being educational institutions to unethical money-making institutions that benefit plutocrats by: exploiting the public with student loans, shaping the education to maintain the status quo, and controlling what can be learned by censorship and harassment. Legislatures must keep politics out of education.
Parents have the right to choose the type of education their children would receive. The government’s role should be advisory and impartial toward parents’ elected type of education. No student should be forced to learn values or information without the permission of their parents.
Educational institutions must only teach facts and objective information without any direction toward certain ideology. Controversial facts, morals and social values must not be taught in schools. The facts must be proven scientifically with a common consensus. Disputable theories have to be taught as a hypothesis along with its counter opinion. The universal and indisputable rules and values of morality and society must be injected in the educational process. Values like peace, justice, respect, self-control, kindness, selflessness, cooperativeness, honesty, generosity and bravery are universal moral values that are essential for any society. Religious education should be available and optional. Sexual education must not be beyond protection methods and pregnancy control. Public schools must not directly or indirectly teach sexual relations types, preferences and family structures, especially in middle and high school; the psychological sensitivity is the highest in this age. It is also vital to focus on building and developing critical and logical thinking skills; it pertains to every aspect of life.
