Question description

"Education: When is it important and under what circumstances is it not?"

Address the following based on the Instructor Insights, lecture, and Webtext materials:

  • Thereis a longstanding belief that education is a critical element to escaping poverty. This belief is very popular in the United States and is pushed throughout the developing world. There is some truth to this belief, but it depends on the circumstances of the individual, the country, the type and subject of the education, and needs of that education.
  • For example, to be a surgeon requires extensive formal training and education. Surgeons hold an important and prestigious position in society. But while all that is true, what if your car broke down in the middle of the desert and you do not need a surgeon but rather could use a good mechanic or tow truck?
  • Education is not always relevant or appropriate for the circumstance. This is true based on the country in question, the needs and circumstances surrounding the economy in a country, as well as the individual and skills being sought through that education.

Consider the following when crafting your response:

-  Outline the most significant obstacles to obtaining an education in developing countries. Suggest at least two (2) reasons why education should be a priority in the developing world and why, perhaps, education in a developing country is NOT a priority.

-  What are some significant overall strategies--aside from building more schools--that can help people escape poverty through education?

-  Where (realistically) can the money come from to pay for education in developing countries?

-  What are some cultural aspects regarding education the hinder a country's development or hold people back from escaping poverty?

-  What kinds of education may be needed in a developing country? Be specific the country, culture, and type of education. (e.g., are women allowed to be educated in some countries/cultures? What about countries that practice the caste system?)

-  Why is education sometimes not the best choice for escaping poverty? (i.e., think opportunity, skills needed, and local situation)
