Illiterate will not be those who cannot read, but those who do not learn 90
In future illiterate will not be those who cannot read, but those who do not learn’- By some writer, Discuss what do you understand by this statement.
The idea of judging anyone’s literacy based on their capability of reading, writing is a topic of debate. Because there are some other factors like to be able to learn, unlearn and relearn. In my opinion, gaining only academic qualification doesn’t mean that we are good at learning. In this essay, we will discuss other points also relates to education and illiteracy.
Firstly, nowadays, students do not want to learn but to obtain good marks only. Learning is a long life process. Learners learn from third mistakes, experiences. They don’t repeat the same mistakes and try to learn from a baby also. Internet is a wealth of information whatever we ask it has the reply to that. It has information about that particular thing also about which nobody else knows.
Another crucial aspect of this argument is that in this globalized era, where information about anything is so readily available thanks to the ubiquity of the Internet, people can learn various skills, enhance their knowledge about other cultures and above all broaden their horizons. Apparently, with an open mind, people can thrive and excel in their career, unlike those who do not consider acquiring knowledge limited to schools and colleges. A deluge of examples of this scenario can be seen both in affluent as well as impoverished nations.
From the above points, we can conclude that to define illiteracy based on read-write is clueless in this modern era. Education is not only to be able to read and write but use that to enlighten someone’s life and never feel ashamed of learning at any age because it’s a never-ending process.
