I am from Pakistan and the present government of my country is quite serious about education. They are focused on the following points.
Improvement in the quality of education
Some of the material/subjects/courses are out dated and need improvements. Government is also trying to bring market based education to the students so that more of them would be able to get jobs.
Uniform System of Education through out the Country
There are three educational systems are currently working in the country.
and the problem is, they all have different syllabuses, different styles of teaching and are following different standards of education. Government is determined to merge these three educational systems into one with a single syllabus, so that everyone could get similar highest quality of education. This would be done under a team of educational experts, who will develop a uniform syllabus and this is already happening.
Enrollment of out of the School Children
There are millions of boys and girls, who are not getting education at all.
Boys are not getting education because their parents are not aware of the importance of the education and prefer to make their children learn something on shops and small factories that can make them able to earn for the basic necessities of the life.
Girls are not getting education because there are many communities in different parts of the country who still thinks that this is against their family honor, against the teaching of the religion and their ancestors' customs.
Government is gonna get those children into schools by offering them financial benefits, and in this way government is also planning to get rid of child labor.
Smart School System & Educational Volunteer Program
Lack of teaching staff is and could be a problem in different parts of the country. Specially for those regions/parts and in general through out the whole country, Smart School System will be introduced. In these schools students will be benefited from online and recorded lectures which will significantly overcome the need for large number of highly qualified staff and more children would be able to get education.
Educational Volunteer Program is also a part of this strategy, in which educated youth would be invited to voluntarily offer their services for teaching the children.
Education is important in every country. It is the driving force of development in the very country. Any country that wants to develop and improve the lives of its citizenry should take education seriously.
Unfortunately, education has taken the back seat in my country. Currently, all federal universities are on strike and nothing is been done to address some of the issues which have led to the strike, like poor infrastructure in most universities, unpaid salaries of lectures, the list is almost endless. For a country that spends more on subsidies than on education, it says a lot about the people we have on people and their agenda for this country.
My opinion is: illiteracy and poverty are tools used by the political class to keep the people docile and easy to manipulate. They will not relinquish this power they have over the mass of uneducated and poorly educated individuals in my country.
Until something is done to salvage this issue my country will not develop as it ought to and sooner or later this will haunt the same people who have made this to be so.
Education is super important in India. And there are three main reasons for that. India was a British Colony, and therefore we have borrowed from them, the idea of elite schools and feeling superior about expensive education. Therefore, it is extremely important to go to a good school, good university, and be able to speak fluent english to get noticed. Second, historically, a class of people in India called Brahmins or pundits, have always been the go to source of suggestions for kings. Religion is secondary here but the learned class, to say it more correctly, has had a lot of sway in political and important decisions throughout the hsitroy of the country. Even till today, this educated class occupies almost all top positions in the country. There are other problems associate with it but educated people have always been in a position of power. Third, India is an emerging country with class and wealth divide and education is seen as the best tool to break those societal divided we witness here. Once you've gone to a good school, your intellect is your ID, not your caste, religion etc. Also education is a great tool to land a good job and break out of the poor section of society, and corporate jobs are aspirational.
There are the obvious benefits of education for which also education is important in our country. One has to learn something in life. But what India misses is social education at an early age, which should impart some sort of civic sense to society at large.
Education is a process to humanize humans so that humans can become individuals / individuals who are mature, intelligent and able to overcome various problems that arise.
Therefore, there is nothing more important than education in realizing a generation of people that is good for a country.
Why is everyone (citizen) entitled to education?
The main reason is that education is the main pillar in the progress of a nation. Without education the State will be destroyed, in addition to other fields such as economics, social, cultural, defense and security.
A country is said to be advanced if education is a country that is developing rapidly and adequately and with quality (capable of giving birth to great humans). With education we can find out something that doesn't know to know. With education we can improve our potential and our way of thinking.
Even in a history of the hadith the Prophet said, if you want to be happy in the world must be with knowledge, if you want to be happy in the hereafter also with knowledge, and if you want to be happy in the world and hereafter also with knowledge. Here it is emphasized that science is very important and primary, even people who are knowledgeable and useful to others have a higher position.
One way to get knowledge is through education, because with someone's education it is not easy to be deceived, so the next generation of the nation must be able to become a Human Resource that reflects that the next generation of Indonesian people is educated and must benefit the surrounding environment.
Education in my country (Indonesia) is a complex and broad problem, so there are various problems. Education is a system that is really good and quality in any way. In Indonesia applying 9-year compulsory education, while someone who is accepted works on average having a minimum formal education background of high school or equivalent.
While education in my country is not only formal but also informal and non-formal education, and what is prioritized from education is the development of a better and dignified mindset. But until now the implementation has not all been carried out as mandated in the Law on National Education.
Children who should receive the right to education are often helped to help their parents to make money and not go to school, so that the child's right to education is neglected.
Ironic indeed, for the current generation only to get basic education, their parents ignored it.
This does need more attention from the government, while the education system in Indonesia has changed, every change in leadership, the education system has also changed, with no consistency in developing good and running ones.
The task of developing education itself is not only the state represented by the government, but the duty of all elements of society, about the importance of education in the life of the nation and state. So because of the importance of education, we must pay serious attention to the problems of education.
so-and-so much. thanks
i cant speak for my country of origin as i haven't lived there for years but i have lived in the Philippines for close to 9 years now and having studied and mingled with Learned people of this country, i have all reasons to believe that Education is very important in the Philippines.
Aside from having very many professionals doing great all around the world, credentials earned and qualification initials after ones name are also highly regarded. This i noticed through out my studies, both undergraduate and post graduate. For Instance, my clinical instructors in Undergrad were very particular and strict on every academic credentials they have achieved be added to their names, without missing a letter. This would not only make known the education qualifications of the said instructor but also subconsciously alert us the students of the educational rank of our teachers, something that acted as a great motivation for us the students.
In graduate school, where most of learned people were my classmates, and even more learned people were my professors, my observations were proven even further. Here i had classmates who had more than 5 Educational qualifications to their name and they would include each and every one of them to their names. Some professors Emphasized the initials be put in a particular order.
introduction of a particular learned individual would always include a full profile of their educational achievements and that would always be mentioned with Great emphasis.

Education is very important in my country Nigeria. Where I come from, not everyone is raised up from the city. That is to say not people in the village might not see the need for educating their child or children or might not be financially buoyant enough to educate their children. But those who live in the city due to exposure or awareness, they know the need for education and so therefore will stop at nothing to see that their children belongs to the category of bright future leaders.
Without education the children roam the streets and this is not good for them.
In my country, if you want to get involved in politics. You must first of all have an academic background. This is because of government is seriously concerned about the well being of the people.
When a leader is an intellect, he has to strategize how he will take care and serve his people in the most beneficial way. The masses are happy when this happens.
Education has helped to groom professional's in different fields like engineering, health workers, teachers, etc. Which all serve a purpose to humans. Without education these things will not come to play.
So education right now is very important in my society.
YES, of course in my country PAKISTAN there are so many high education facilities their kids best future development and the organization in our country that lead to the bright future of Pakistan
In our City Islamabad, there are many highest universities that I want to share with you some of the names. NUML University, NUST University, CUST University, IIUI University, and there is another some of universities that are the most papular in our country. If you want to come study here I recommend to NUST university because of this one Top in all over Pakistan.
As you know the best education is lead to the best future. Some peoples are not affording the expenses of education their government should be available to help that people they wanted to study. But the government are not helped many peoples they are poor but want to the best future. Well, that depends on the best government organizations.
It is important in my country and there are currently many reforms that the government is making to better the education system. Education is really important as parents are paying top bucks to bring their kids to the best schools in the country. That's one area of spending that parents aren't cutting down on.
Most jobs now require a minimal degree or else the jobs that are offered would have a been a lower paid job. Tutoring centers in my country are mostly pretty successful as they usually rack in lots of cash from parents who want their children to make it to some of the best universities. In my city, there is Curtin University and and I guess a hundred more around the country. Many graduated parents now know the importance of sending their kids to school and making sure that their kids would do well in school.
The government now is introducing new modules which adds in blockchain, data analysis and many of those crypto related topics into the university system.
Here in the Philippines, education is very important.
Most of us, if not all of us believe that, education is a must to have a better life. We have a saying that "education is something precious that no one can steal from you."
If you prefer a good job or higher position here, you will need to have the right credentials such as the required degree in education. It ismostly required by companies or employers.
That is why the government and other organizations give much attention in improving the educational system in the country.
Here in the Philippines, education was viewed as very important. Knowledge earned from education is something other people cannot take from you. It was even believed that it can eradicate poverty.
However, it is something I don't believe on. Many Filipinos who acquired higher education end up with jobs that's not accordingly to the courses they took. There are even people who never reached college yet they were very successful in business aspects.
Education is important, but the misconception that it is the only way to ened poverty should be dismissed.
When I consider the actions of our government with regard to the education sector then I am afraid it is not important enough to them. There is hardly any money spend on new school buildings, the class sizes are increasing, they have not really any agenda when it comes to digitalization, bullying and violence in schools among pupils are a big problem. I would advise nobody to send his children to public schools any more.
