The importance of learning is enabling the individual to put his potentials to optimal use is self-evidence. Without education the training of the human minds is incomplete. No individual is a human being in the working world until hehas been educated in the proper sense. Now I'm not saying you're not a human being without education. The mind was made to be trained and without education a person is incomplete in that sense. Education makes man a right thinker and a correct decision-maker. It achieves this by bringing him knowledge from the external world, teaching him to reason, and acquainting him with past history, so that he may be a better judge of the present. Without education man as it were is shut up in a windowless room. Witheducation, he finds himself in a room with all its windows open to the outside world. In other words, people who are not educated have less oppurtunity to do what they want to do. It also shows the importance of eduaction.
