Question :Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? For the successful development of a country, it is more important for a government to spend money on the education of very young children (five to ten years old) than to spend money on universities. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

In the modern world, we are living, the literacy of people tends to be more important than it was in the past times. However, there is heated controversy about the allocation of the budget for the education of every age-based group in the community. While some may think that the government should spend more money on university-level education, many may believe that the education of young children must be the first priority of teaching systems. In this regard, I am inclined to the latter one mainly because of two reasons. Firstly, young children have more capacity and also free time to learn. In this regard, they resemble a white paper that someone -the educational system- can write whatever she/he wants. Also, children have more free time, since they do not have the ability as well as the responsibility to earn money or run a family. Not only their unfolded capacity of mind but also their free time can make them a good investment for politics. In fact, with less budget allocated compared to other parts of society, the government can achieve the best possible result. Moreover, the education of students should be illustrated as an investment in the workforce of the forthcoming. The more investment the authority puts into the education of children, the more civilized our society will be in the future. In fact, with just a little speculation, we can guarantee the prosperity of our society since many of these kids are going to be our upcoming teachers, doctors, and engineers. Without flourishing children, no country can imagine being the world's pioneer in having good human resources. To sum it up, the schooling systems have an important role in all prosperous countries, for they can provide good human resources. Although Many may think that government should spend more money on the teaching of young adults, I think, in a neutral context where no groups of children and adults suffer from a deficient education system, the power should put most of its efforts into young children's literacy, since they have more mental capacity and free time, and they are the future of every country.
