Essential Service?

So you want to make Education as an Essential Service.

Definition of ESSENTIAL: absolutely necessary, extremely important.

Yes I would have to agree that Education is necessary and extremely important for all children and adults. 
But before you deem it an Essential service, ask yourself this. Is it a matter of life and death? I think you would agree with me that Education is not a matter of life and death, relatively speaking that is. 

I ask anyone that thinks Education should become an Essential Service, to sit down with a Primary School Teacher, Intermediate School Teacher or a High School Teacher and explain to them why you feel this way.

Educate yourself by asking a Teacher, what they think is Essential! After all, Teachers do know first hand, what goes on in their classrooms.
