Most of the government funding should be used by schools to teach science rather than teach other subjects in order for a country to develop. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

Due to the limited government funding, we should get the most use of it in the right way. On top of it, having a well-designed plan in what should be taught in schools plays an essential role in the success of education.


Science, including physics, chemistry, biology etc., is undoubtedly the driving force of the development of modern society. Without the advancement in science, we would have no convenient public transportation, cheap electronic devices and informative internet. Therefore, the statement that government should invest most of their funding in the education of science is true to some extent for the reason that the cultivation of talents is the foundation on which science could be developed.


Nevertheless, I would argue that, the investment in other subjects, such as literature, law and art, is equally important the development of society. The advancement in science is not the only factor that promotes the development of society. People, who pay too much attention to the teaching of science, neglect the importance of other factors which may be more vitally important for a country to develop. For instance, people’s sense of responsibilities, people’s feeling of happiness both have significant influence on the energy and time people devote to their work. Generally, people who are well-educated by schools in the subject of literature or art tend to enjoy their lives better and hence have higher efficiency when working. Besides, nothing seems more indispensable than the power of law to the development of modern society. For example, without the protection of intelligent property by law, government could not give enough encouragement to inventors and scientists.


To conclude, government funding cannot be allocated mainly on the teaching of science, and it should be used by schools to teach other subjects which are equally important.
