Thesis Statement Example

Below is an example of thesis statement.

A good education is important to Filipinos.  It is something they strive and work hard for.  Education is compulsory for children up to 12 years old.  Consequently, almost all children within this age bracket go to school while 78% of youths (ages 13-16) are enrolled.

At present, the country’s literacy rate is around 99%

Foreign companies prefer Filipino workers because they are intelligent, resourceful, creative and resilient.

In the above example, let us presume here that in a study on the current education trends in the Philippines, the country was found to have a very high literacy rate.  Given this, it can be surmised that education is really valued by Filipinos and this is something foreigners admire – a source of the Filipinos’ competitive edge in the global market.
