We caught up recently with Tim Lehmann to ask, "Why is education important?" Lehmann tells of the impact education has made on his own life and why it benefits everyone.
I think education is the gateway to "better." We are a better society when people are educated, we are better individuals when people are educated and we make better decisions when we are educated. Education has become one of the clearest indicators of life outcomes such as employment, income and social status, and it is a strong predictor of well-being.
My parents, who are both college graduates, aided my path. It was instilled early on that education was the great equalizer and that you get out what you put in. As my grandfather was fond of saying, "The more you learn, the more you earn!"
It has had an incredible impact on my life. It continues to impact my attitudes and altitude. I continue to believe that there is an "education effect" that correlates to better social and economic outcomes based on how much education a person has. I know in my life this is true.
