A good education system is vital to train individuals to achieve economic success. In turn, a good economy is necessary to provide the financial resources required to have a good education system, and those financial resources must be carefully managed to produce a quality education system capable of producing good students. Businesses must have qualified employees to be successful, and individuals must have good skills to be good employees. Education is thus important to both the individual and businesses. Finally, if an individual is well-educated, he or she is typically capable of gaining profitable employment, and he or she will usually spend more money. This stimulates economic growth and with economic growth, there are usually adequate financial resources available for education.
