GlobalizationPart A): Crucial links between development and education as mediated by colonialism and neoliberalism? Education is majorly done for literacy purposes. During the colonial period, education was majorly focused with a need to attain the county’s sustainably goals. For instance, with education, colonialists were assured that productivity in the agricultural sector would be positively affected. Farmers will have acquired new farming techniques and learn on how to cope with risks that might arise. In addition, farmers got to understand on the responses that are required in the market. Through education, the status of women was enhanced due to the fact that people started to be enlightened.
Chemical applications to farms were also acquired by farmers after they were educated. In addition, it aided them to have title deeds thereby granting them the opportunity to engage in loans and other money lending institutes. All these were heading towards development. Education was directly connected to economic policies such as decline in population which was set so as to be able to gain economic stability of the country. In regard to this, the standard of living rose up mainly because the country was able to control the population economically.
It is as a result of education that a person has the knowledge of protecting the environment. If development creates inequalities, how can education alleviate them? The development of both economic and social life across nations has proved to be an education process because people will be in a position to come up with new institutions, new technology usage, adapting the environment and also altering on their behavioral patterns. In undergoing education through schooling, all aspects of life that are interrelated will come close to one another thus being termed national development.
When this is done across the globe the equality will be achieved. It is therefore a fact to say that people who have acquired basic education will be in a better position to come up with new approaches on how activities are to be carried. With the rapid technological change, it demands that people acquire skills so that they can work with it effectively. Inequality is a state where individuals do not have full access to life opportunities resulting to different social classes.
Equity is considered complementary especially is in fundamental respects in the need to pursue a long-term prosperity. It is therefore expected that both institutions and formulated policies in their area of concern such political, social and economical lives are so far the only factors that promote the development of these aspects. In the efforts to reduce the poverty levels in the society, equity is highly considered because it finally resulting into development because the poor in the society will have benefited from the opportunities that is within their society. Inequality has been found to emerge in many countries because of two reasons; first, in developing countries markets have been noted to fail majorly in the land, insurance, credit and human capital sections of the economy.
This indicates that their rate of expenditure is very high while their resources are at a stand still. The consequences that might arise thereafter will affect education sector. Children who are in less fortunate families will not be able to go to school. In addition, agricultural sector will suffer and unskilled labor will not be lucky as they will not get a chance to go to their neighboring richer countries to work.
