The utility of education received by today’s children has arisen a fierce discuss in the society, due to the increasing competition in the employment market for the graduates. In my opinion, national education as an essential part in one’s personal development can eventually be supportive in many walks of life.

It is undeniable that students can lay a solid foundation by learning a range of theoretical knowledge like math, language and etc. during their school age, which is an effective way to accumulate knowledge and broaden their horizon; as a result, children’s potential could be explored and a clear perspective would be gained when they select major in later higher education. Besides the benefits of compulsory courses, school is regarded as a micro society to shape younger’s personalities by conducting moral education, which also means that the campus provides an environment where the youth can socialize with each other to acquire some abilities about how to maintain and develop the relationship.

However, the current education system is not flawless. To be specific, the public blame the high unemployment among undergraduates on the lack of practical knowledge in the overall university curriculum which attaches more importance on the scores and diploma rather than evaluating students’ real ability of solving problem and overcoming difficulties; consequently, the necessary experience in future working cannot be guaranteed by schools. The low competency leaves people an impression that the younger generation is not reliable.

In conclusion, the drawbacks does not mean that the contribution of education can be ignored; what students get during both mental and intellectual growth can never be replaced by any other forms, while the system could operate better under appropriate adjustment.
