“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself,” said American philosopher, psychologist and educational.

This saying is certainly true simply because one cannot ignore the importance of education. And according to the findings of a recent study in UK, the higher people’s level of general education, not only the more satisfied they were in their daily life but also the more worthwhile they felt. The survey was conducted on over a group of 15,000 people, out of which a whopping 81 per cent of the people with very high levels of education levels said they were very satisfied in life. Also, as the levels of education decreased, so did the percentage of people and their levels of happiness. We spoke to experts to find out how much does education contribute to happiness in life.

Atul Thakur, faculty member at a prestigious Mumbai college partially agrees with the study saying, “Yes, because higher education opens the door of knowledge and also can give purpose of life. It may give the maturity to distinguish between right and wrong. And no, because very few take education as a thirst or the quest for knowledge. Rest of them focus on their career and material gains. So the answer depends on how you define satisfaction.”  –timesofindia.indiatimes
