In many countries, prison is the most common solution for crimes. However, many think that better education is the most effective way to prevent people from committing further crime.
To what extent do you agree or disagree?
In a number of nations, it is common to send criminals to jails to prevent crimes. But some people believe that it is better to educate people to restrain them from committing offences. I completely agree with the given statement.
First of all, it is an ineffective education which is responsible for unemployment. Without education and knowledge, it is hard to get jobs. Consequently, these uneducated people indulge in criminal activities such as robbery and killing others for money. Had they received a good education, they would be employed and they would not need to resort to such illegal and immoral acts.
Often educated people to live in a community with other educated and productive people. They share nice thought and work toward the positive development of self and others. When people are engaged in productive activities they automatically have no time to think of criminal acts.
Undoubtedly, this is also true that not all crimes can be prevented by promoting education as some of the most famous criminals have been master’s degree holders and working in reputed companies at outstanding positions. Still, most common forms of criminal activities such as robbery, killing and molestation can surely be controlled to a significant extent by educating people.
In conclusion, while the education has been found effective in prevention of typical offences, some sophisticated crimes such as cybercrimes, embezzlement cannot be handled as they are performed by well-educated individuals.
