social, emotional, and spiritual.

Functions of education towards society:

(1) Social change and control:

The society is never station. It is progressive and dynamic. The child lives in society. It is the social
environment where the personality of the child can be developed. The old traditions, customs are
preserved and transmitted with the situations, which are ever changing. We should not think or
believe in the blind beliefs, which are hindrances towards our development. Education helps to
walk with the development of science and technology.

(2) Reconstruction of experiences:

Education is life-long process. Life is education and education is life. Life is full of experiences.
One cannot live with his past experiences which are unable to adjust in the society. So education
helps the individual to reconstruct the experience and adjust with the environment.

(3) Development of social and moral value:

Society is always in tension with narrowism. There is no social or moral value. Now the man is
behaving like an animal. Animality can be changed with moral education. Education teaches the
moral value and social value like co-operation, tolerance, sympathy, fellow feelings, love
affection, respect towards elder, helping the poor and needy persons.

(4) Providing opportunity or equality:

Indian Constitution has introduced the term equality because we are not getting equal
opportunities in all aspects. Education teaches us to give equal opportunities in all aspects
irrespective of caste, creed, color, sex and religion.

Functions of education towards nation:

understand its rights and duties as citizens of a democratic country.

(3) National integration- We are living in one country having diversities in respect of color, caste,
language, diet, dress, habits and physical environment.

Educational integration leads to emotional integration. Education trains people for unity, not for
locality, for democracy and not for dictatorship.

Education serves the most important end of educating the man.

(4) Total national development- Education helps for bringing about total national development by
developing its all aspects i.e. social, economic, cultural, spiritual, moral, educational, etc.

Therefore, really education is an essential ingredient for all ages and stages of the life of an
individual, society as well as the nation. Education can be a real panacea for all social evils.

The following are eight benefits of education that help to combat global poverty:

1. Education Raises Literacy Levels

Illiteracy is a cycle which reinforces long-term poverty levels throughout generations.

Individuals living in poverty are often prevented from entering educational settings.

According to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), a
12 percent drop in global poverty could be achieved if each student within low-income countries
received basic reading and literacy skills by the time they left school.

2. Education Increases Income and Wealth Creation

Increased education levels directly give individuals the necessary skills to increase their income
level. Each extra year of schooling a child receives increases that students earnings by up to 10
percent, according to UNESCO.

Education also boosts the income levels and amount of food farmers produce on their land by
giving them the necessary information to cultivate cash crops or follow other measures that may
raise their cultivation levels.
3. Education Helps Reduce Instability and Corruption

According to the Global Partnership for Education, 36 percent of children worldwide who are
not receiving education live in areas of conflict. This lack of opportunity damages their ability to
find employment once the conflict ceases. Education promotes stable and peaceful societies that
are capable of development.

4. Education Promotes Healthier Lives

Education and awareness give individuals the tools they need to take control over their health
choices. Education is also important for the containment of communicable diseases.

According to the World Health Service, an individual who has completed a lower secondary
school education has poor health 18 percent less than individuals with no education.

Prevention programs help to fight the transmission of diseases within affected communities and
reduce mother/infant mortality rates.

UNESCO reported a mother who is literate is 23 percent more likely to give birth with the help
of a skilled attendant or midwife. Further, children born to literate mothers are also 50 percent
more likely to live past the age of five.

5. Education Empowers Females

The benefits of female education are not limited to childbirth. When women receive educational
opportunities they have greater abilities to generate income, their families are healthier, they
raise fewer children and get married at older ages, thereby averting child marriages.

Educating mothers is integral for the societies they belong to. Over the last four decades, around
four million child deaths have been prevented due to an increase in female education according
to a study funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation posted in The Lancet journal.

6. Education, Food Security and Nutrition

Poor nutrition affects brain development and the ability to learn for individuals living within
poverty stricken areas.

According to UNESCO, 1.7 million fewer children would suffer from stunting, a sign of
malnutrition, if all women completed primary education levels. Education also contributes to a
more varied diet which reduces the prevalence of malnutrition.

7. Education and the Development of Technical Skills

With increased levels of education, a countrys residents will be more likely to gain knowledge
of technical skills creating employment opportunities in fields such as agriculture, construction,
technologies and transportation. The development of infrastructure gives children living in
remote areas the ability to reach school facilities more easily, raising educational levels within
that particular area.
8. Education Boosts Economic Growth

Education promotes and fuels productivity gains that boost economic growth within countries.
As reported by the United States Agency for International Development, increasing the average
level of education in a country by one year can increase the annual gross domestic product of
that nation by half a percentage point.

2. Effects of Filipino Time

Productivity Loss

An employee who isn't working when he's supposed to is an immediate loss of productivity.
Routine interruption may throw other employees off, particularly those who rely on the late
employee to do parts of their jobs. Frequently, late employees hinder productivity on a bigger
level than an employer might initially realize. For example, an employee working on a project
who is late 10 minutes each day for a week loses nearly an entire hour of work. If another
employee needs the late person to do his project part, he may lose nearly as much work time
despite being punctual.

Negative Morale

Frequently late employees may lower everyone's morale. The late person isn't following the rules
and may lead other employees to feel angry about the unfairness of the situation. The morale of
immediate co-workers may plummet because the employee's lateness puts stress on them,
especially if they have to cover for the late employee or fall behind in their own jobs.

Customer Dissatisfaction

Late employee disruptions affect time-sensitive areas of the job, such as customer service. If an
employee is late and doesn't make a delivery to a customer on time, for example, the customer
may end the relationship with the employer. A late employee who is supposed to open a location
at a specific time may lose customers if she's not there when she's supposed to be. Multiple
incidents of poor customer service will affect the employer's reputation and may discourage
potential customers.

Management Problems

Allowing one or more employees to come in late frequently can undermine the employer's
management team. Other employees may begin to feel as if the rules don't apply to the late
employee and come in late themselves. When management consistently lets someone slide, other
employees may lose respect for the people in charge.
