Our education fundamentally determines our destiny and quality of life. Your education provides stability and can never be taken away. One can become a better person and get a better paid job by having the ability to differentiate between good and negative things.
The nation observes this most important aspect of our existence as a global holiday. The International Day of Education, which is celebrated annually on January 24 and is acknowledged as a fundamental human right, a public good, and a civic duty, was marked by people all around the world.
History and Significance of International Day of Education
The United Nations General Assembly decided on December 3 to designate January 24 as the International Day of Education. Nigeria and the other 58 members of the United Nations jointly drafted this resolution, and its adoption demonstrated the unwavering political support for altering current laws to guarantee equitable and high-quality education for all.
Education facilitates information acquisition and increases confidence. With its assistance, you can improve both professionally and personally. Additionally, it helps a person develop important skills including mental flexibility, logical reasoning, decision-making, and problem-solving. The day is crucial for advancing legislation that provides accessible, equal education for all socioeconomic groups.
