“Education is the passport to the future for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.” Education provides stability in life and it’s something that no one can ever take away from you. Education is a component through which our lives can be changed completely. It is a vital component that continues to be in demand through generations. Whereas the way of imparting education is changed from time to time. Now a day education is freely accessible to all but in the olden days, only a few people were educated. And the ones who adored this skill used it for the betterment of their own and family life.
There is a significant difference between traditional education and modern education. In traditional education, the students are taught about traditions, customs, rituals, and religion. While in modern education students are taught about science, technology, language skill and mathematics,s, etc. The knowledge imparted in the traditional education system was enough for one’s own living, but it was not enough to match the whole world.
Both types of education have their own place and importance. We can not judge whether any type of education is good or bad. Modern educations are good in its period & traditional was good in its period. It depends on an individual’s interest. What the person wants to learn. If the person wants to learn about rituals, customs and religion then, of course, they should prefer for traditional education. In contrast, if a person wants to learn about science & technology then definitely modern education is better for them. Everyone should know what their tradition, culture & the stories and beliefs of their religion are. In the same way, it is equally important to catch up with the world in terms of the modern development which is occurring today. It is difficult to infer which education is better. Both the types have their own importance.

Everyone deserves the same education. Education is very necessary for each & everyone in order to improve knowledge, way of living as well as social & economic status throughout the life. It helps a person to get knowledge and improve confidence level all through life. It plays a great role in our career growth as well as in personal growth. Those who get an education
have higher incomes, have more opportunities in their lives, & tend to be healthier. Societies benefit as well. Societies with high rates of education completion have lower crime, and better overall health & civic involvement. Lack of access to education is considered the root of poverty.
