Education is truly critical for personal growth; being a learned and knowledgeable individual contributes to greater quality of life and overall happiness. It exposes you to information you previously didn’t know and helps you reach informed opinions on myriad topics. Education is capable of making huge changes for you personally as well as in society at large as you develop new skills and learn to apply them in your life. Education is key to reducing poverty and achieving equality worldwide. It can be acquired both formally (grade school, university, etc) and informally (outside of a structured learning environment). The majority of learning comes from informal sources, outside a classroom, in community programs, museums, libraries, etc. What educational activities do you enjoy?
