அனைவருக்கும் கல்வி என்பது மனித இனம் முழுவதற்கும் கல்வி வழங்குதல் என்பதை குறிக்கின்றது.

நமது சமூக கட்டமைப்பில் சுதந்திரம், சமத்துவம், சகோதரத்துவம் எனும் முக்கோண கோட்பாட்டின் சமூகத்தின் இயல்பாக நிலைநிறுத்துவதே கல்வி தான். தனி மனித பலவீனத்தை அகற்றி தனி மனிதர்கள் சமூகக் கட்டுக்கோப்புக்கு உரியவராக மாற்றும் பணியை கல்வி மட்டுமே முன்னெடுக்கின்றது. வாழ்க்கையை மேம்படுத்துகின்ற நமது குணங்களை சீர்படுத்தி மனதை ஆற்றுப்படுத்துகின்றது. மனிதம் நிறைந்த சமூக கட்டமைப்பு உருவாகுவதற்கு சமூகத்துக்கான சமூக உணவாக இருப்பது புத்தகங்கள் மட்டுமேயாகும். வீட்டுக்கொரு நூலகத்தை நாம் முன்னிருத்த வேண்டும். புத்தக வாசிப்பென்பது சமூக சுவாசமாக மாற்றப்பட வேண்டும். அப்பொழுது மட்டுமே கல்வியின் மீது கட்டப்பட்ட அறிவார்ந்த சமூகம் உருவாகும்.

மகாத்மா காந்தி கல்வி பற்றி தனது கருத்தில் கல்வியானது சகல பிரிவுகளிலும் தனியாளிடமுள்ள ஆற்றல்களில் உச்ச விருத்தி கல்வி மூலம் நிறைவேற்றப்படல் வேண்டும் எனக் கூறினார்.

Reading Books

1. Children who read often and widely get better at it.

After all, practise makes perfect in almost everything humans do, and reading in no different.

2. Reading exercises our brain.

Reading is a much more complex task for the human brain rather than watching TV, for example. Reading strengthens brains connections and builds NEW connections.

3. Reading improves concentration.

Children have to sit still and quietly so that they can focus on the story when they are reading. If the read often, they will develop the skill to do this for longer.

4. Reading teaches children about the world around them.

Through reading a variety of books children learn about people, places, and events outside of their own experience.

5. Reading improves vocabulary and language skills.

Children learn new words as they read. Subconsciously, they absorb information on how to structure sentences and how to use words and other language features effectively in their writing and speaking.

6. Reading develops a child's imagination.

As we read our brains translate the descriptions we read of people, places and things into pictures. While we are engaged in a story we are also imagining how a character is feeling. Young children then bring this knowledge into their everyday play.

7. Reading helps children to develop empathy.

As children develop they begin to imagine how they would feel in that situation.

8. Reading is a fun.

A book or an e-reader doesn't take up much space and is light to carry, so you take it anywhere so you can never be bored if you have a book in your bag.

9. Reading is a great way to spend time together.

Reading together on the sofa, bedtimes stories and visiting the library are just some ways of spending time together.

10. Children how read achieve better in school.

Reading promotes achievement in all subjects, not just English. Children who are good readers tend to achieve better across the curriculum.
