Progression Through Knowledge Essay

907 words - 4 pages

When one is offered education, one is also offered the opportunity to learn. However, to take this gift or not is one’s choice. Education is concrete, as it can be taught and learned at various places, such as schools, universities, and corporations. How we apply it is the hardest and an indefinite obstacle, but is proven to bid us greatest form of education - knowledge. In return for knowledge, we must fully envelop ourselves into the surrounding world, learning from both mistakes and achievements, pushing ourselves to greater heights. Knowledge has no bounds or limits, offering great insight and wisdom to those who are determined to chase it. In today’s society, education entails simply depositing by both the educator (depositor) and student (depository), creating a banking concept. Education does not take a creative form of any sort, unlike knowledge, and appeals much less to the depository. Knowledge allows for an individual to grow and expand beyond the boundaries that they have been limited to by others or themselves. Education is indeed needed as a backbone for knowledge, but doesn’t entail the interaction and curiosity that knowledge offers.
Students today are not being taught a cumulative education, but rather a “banking concept of education.” After a test or assessment over materials, many classes move forward with lesson plans and do not take time to go over all the lessons learned. This gives students the impression that they can merely braindump by learning the material the night before, taking the assessment, then forgetting it all. Some may argue that English is a cumulative class, which it is, offering students the ability to expand their knowledge by learning from mistakes and achievements. In many English classrooms, the goal is progression. We as students should strive to move forward and do better each time, correcting any mistakes we may have made. Progression is, in turn, the key to achieving knowledge. Education from a classroom setting offers you a firm base and foundation for your knowledge to blossom. Like a flower, education blooms and progresses with achievements (the sun) and mistakes (rain). Once fully grown, education starts to shrivel up, becoming less important to us, since we strive for a challenge and are fatigued with banking. As knowledge forms new buds in one’s mind, it entices an individual to apply the education that they have acquired. Once our minds have blossomed with buds, we can incorporate our experiences from our past to establish a new knowledge, reinventing ourselves as wiser beings.
In the education system, knowledge is not seen as a true form of intelligence and there is very little encouragement to develop one’s intuitive abilities and self-motivation. Since society promotes education over knowledge, students are less...
