Did anyone else use to watch Quantum Leap on TV? I feel like I’m Scott Bakula, leaping from one wildly different scenario to another. Yesterday was handwriting and today is, well, deeper.
Education, important or not?
First, we need to establish what level of education we are discussing. I think everyone (OK, nearly everyone) can agree that education to at least 16 is vital.
So we’re talking about higher education.
Higher education, important or not?
If you were one of those people who couldn’t wait to get out of high school, disrupted every class, and didn’t try to learn anything, then further education is pointless. But is pointless the same as unimportant? No.
I think education at every level is important, but I agree it is not for everyone.
There is no point in furthering your education if you do not want it.
But what is education?
After high school I went to college and then university, I knew people who went straight to work and learnt on the job. LEARNT ON THE JOB. Just because you’re not in a classroom doesn’t mean you’re not in some form of education.
My personal conclusion
Education is very important, whether it be in a classroom setting, on the job, or self-teaching.
