Education is a cornerstone of society that gives people an opportunity to grow. Throughout the history of humankind, hundreds of professions have been invented. Nowadays, children and teenagers can choose to become anyone they want, from a confectioner to a professional soccer player, from a lawyer to a musician. However, some jobs need many years of training and education to provide benefits for the world. One of those professions is firefighter, which I chose to become.
There are plenty of reasons why education is crucial for people that want to become full members of society. One of them is that it helps to improve the economy. It provides an opportunity for people to get enough knowledge to help the community they live in and secure themselves financially. It creates more employment options because even when the number of jobs is limited, professionals are always highly appreciated in their field. Education helps to develop critical thinking and stress tolerance, as well as helps with socialization. It is crucial that “everyday effort and stress, as well as the dangers and risks of the firefighter profession, make it one of the noblest and one of the most difficult occupations at the same time” (Zivkovic et al., 2021, p. 37). It promotes equality and treatment for anyone regardless of age, gender, race, or sexual orientation.
To conclude, education is one of the most fundamental parts of society that affects most of the people’s lives. It creates a workforce that drives progress and serves the communities around the country in many ways. The profession of a firefighter requires a full understanding of the situation and what actions need to be taken. It demands knowledge, persistence, and stress tolerance because people’s lives depend on them.
