Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? It is more important for students to understand ideas and concepts than it is for them to learn facts. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

Every individual has personal thoughts and opinion regarding a point which might be different from others. Some would agree that It is more important for students to understand ideas and concepts than it is for them to learn facts while others would not. I agree with the opinion that "Understanding ideas and concepts are more important to students than to learn facts''. Understanding ideas and perception mean not only to catch up on the important points but also to understand the whole things clearly and get the basic image of those things. And learning fact means knowing the only important facts of those things, in this case we actually don't get so much about this thing. If a junior learns only the fact he would learn only the specific point not the whole part. For pattern say a undergraduate has to read a book, but instead of reading those books he only read the summary of that book. So in this case he will lack behind the knowledge of the concept of that books, he will also miss the logical explanation of any situation. Although he can learn the facts in less time he won't get the concept accurately. If someone learns only the facts of a matter he will lack behind the knowledge of knowing the whole context or whole meaning of that matter. For a case on an international issue a scholar learns only the facts via using social media, and other undergraduate learn the whole question via books, articles,and newspapers. In this symbol it is clear that the latter one can describe that affair easily and correctly with all of the necessary pieces of information. So from the above lesson it is clear that for a undergraduate understanding the concepts and ideas are more important than learning the facts.
