Julelai, my teacher said that is ok the word "educacion".

Everyone has a right to an education
What does education mean? The word “education” is defined as the activities of educating, or instructing or teaching that imparts knowledge or skill. According to the Human Rights Commission, the right to an education is the development of human potential to the enjoyment of the full range of human rights. Because of this, I personally believe that education is an open window to many good opportunities. Also, it should be a priority for governments to make education available and accessible to everyone.

Education should be a priority in every country. The education of today’s students from elementary through graduate school should be considered essential for a country’s future. If we offer a good education to our students, we will have students with excellent knowledge, skills, and abilities in different fields such as science, technology or electrical engineering. Although we know that today’s minimum wage for jobs has not increase in many countries, many educational programs from the governments have been closed by lack of economic resources. As a result, governments must prioritize their expenses for educational issues. If the governments do not accomplish it, we will have a high rate of illiteracy as well as low rates of people working in professional occupations. Therefore, people should be educated in order to make informed choices that will provide more taxes to the governments who may have to increase their educational budgets.

Although, many people share responsibility for the realization of education, the primary obligation falls on governments to make education available. Governments have obligations to respect, provide and fulfill the right to an education. In addition, governments must impart education from basic level to higher level. They should provide educational services and give more priority to instructing people. Schools in many poor countries are not likely to build up enough money for education, so in many cases levels of education are low. However, countries that do have money fail to include education in their budgets. For example, in The United States the investments in education are low, especially in higher level of education. As a result, many students after graduating from high school cannot afford a two-year or four-year institution such as college and university.

Finally, a priority for governments is to make education accessible. Governments should unsure that no one is exclused from education regardless of race, sex or religion. For example, it means that if a disabled student finds difficult the use of a service, then an educational institution has to make changes to the service. In order to make the right of education a reality, governments should provide more opportunities for people such as low tuitions, free educational programs that will enable them to get an education. Governments should stimulate and support educational institutions to participate in financial aid programs. It will help students to have more opportunities to attend college and get a higher education.

Education is an open window towards a successful future. Moreover, education should be a priority, for education is a fundamental right set by the Universal Declarations of Humans Rights. Therefore, to pursue the aim of education for everyone, it should be an obligation for governments to make it accessible and available.
eh? if you are trying to define education, then why is your topic still the same?

If education is what you're defining, then do it in such a way that encompasses all aspects of knowledge acquisition.

Good luck.

Let me give you an example of a definition essay. It's something I wrote years ago.

Sorry about the lousy formatting.

What is a translation

A translation is no translation, he said, unless it will give
you the music of a poem along with the words of it.
John Millington Synge (1871-1909) in the Aran Islands (1907)

Synge thought translation is an art. According to
Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, it is more of a
science; it is "an act, process, or instance of translating" "as
a rendering from one language into another." In other words, as
a point of contact between two mutually unintelligible
languages, translation renders possible the comprehension of ideas
originally expressed in another language. But can
there always be a one-to-one lexical equivalence between the
translation and the original words? We Chinese call pink "powder
red"; we think the computer is the "electronic brain"; but we
will not eat soup--Chinese "drink soup". Chinese call American
herbs "scented grass"; our own herbs end up in a pot of
bitter medical brewery.

No one can deny that language is an inalienable part of a
culture; accordingly, a translation is vital in understanding
another culture in the lenses of one's own.
The interpreter is in reality translating a culture. Since
direct equivalence in lexicons is not possible, the lexicon
closest in meaning is being adopted, vocabularies adjusted
for the audience in the translated language. Hence, a mastery
of one's own language becomes just as important. Ned Rorem once
commented, "the art of translation lies less in knowing the
other language than in knowing your own." "Random Notes from a
Diary," Music from Inside Out (1967). He is right: how can
people learn about other cultures when they cannot understand
their own?

However impossible it is to restore the original shades of
meaning in a translation, translators should not prevariate, or
intentionally deviate from the original words, since the
audience is appreciating another culture through them. Let me
translate a quote from Confucious, "If language does not speak the truth,
affairs will not be successful." Analects (6th c. BC)

But this cannot qualify as a translation, at least not to Synge.
I did not give enough justice to the beauty of Confucious's words.

Julelai, I know that if I am talking about education, my topic should be just "education", but my teacher gave me that specific topic, Everyone has a right to an education, and I can't change it

Then tell us why everyone should have a right to education. Refer to your last thread.
At the moment you are concentrating on benefits to the government/society. Does this really answer why everyone should have a right to an education - you need to focus more on the individual's rights, not the benefits to society. - Why EVERYONE when surely a society also needs plenty of people who do not directly benefit the society by the level of their education, how would a society benefit from a grave-digger or road-sweeper ora fast food server with a university degree? So, why should the many people who will go into this type of job still have the right to a good education?
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
