is education really that important???


it is, with out an education, you cant learn what has been discovered, you cant spell,read or anything else, its things you need to know to be able to know what has happened plus it helps in shaping who you are like if your going to be a mer cashier at a fast food restaurant or the next Einstein thats how this world keeps advancing, through education, it brings out the creativity of the human mind, did you know that doctors stil dont know how a human brain works, they know what parts it has and some stuff but they still dont know what it is, plus you cnat geta good job with out knowing what it is your doing, i can keep going on and on but im too lazy XD hope this sorta helps you in turning that light bulb in your head on XD


all thats brainwashing. u can go to the library and learn all that crap. Education doesnt have to take place in school. you can educate yourself.There aint nothing in school u cant learn out on the streets. and if all u got is a highschool diploma, you will still be working at a fast food restuarant.No one will be the next Einstein. Cause even he didnt become famous through education.freedom brings out creativity, not the brainwashing done in the oppressive school.Did u know schools and prisons were build by the same people for the same purpose?

school is for fools. peace over war


well now adays, its hard to get a good job with out a paper saying you finished school, you cant be learning thngs on the streets and expect to be the next virgin president, poeple wont care about you, now adays you have to have something to back you up that you are capable of doing your job


u can always become an assassin or mercendary. u can sell drugs. run a black maket. or just steal money. it all requires a special level of education u cant learn in school. peace over war



but it would be illegal and it will cause chaos right?

School was built not for education initially. It started out as a place to instill good morals and help enhance mental retention to the higher class of society. But it's moved on from that.. In all honesty if you think about it some people say "I'm not going to user this in real life ever.." .. Well if you're taking algebra, that can help you decide which soap is cheaper to buy, the gas mileage you're getting, etc. A physics class can simply help you out in almost anything that applies to the realm of life. I feel as if school is not just for education, it's a social experience, if you were to seclude yourself from the world and only read books about life where's the experience of it? I feel like most people learn by doing, and by going to school and getting an education you're doing many other things than just boring trigonometry. I think that a lot of school systems are flawed though, it seems like the US standards push us towards getting good test scores and becoming the best at getting high SAT scores which determines your intelligence. Where I would think it would be better to learn more so along the lines of problem solving skills, social skills, and daily life skills that your parents might not have the time to teach you. All in all, i think it's a good thing, just make sure you have an open mind about other things.

omg i was wondering this yesterday when i was on my way to class !!
I think education is important but i dont think i need to go to school everyday heres my reason why:
i never listen and rush my homework at the last minute
i grab a revision guide or notes when its exam time and thats how i get good grades
So why do i need to be taught so excessively?

that phrase has a nice ring , yet are there ''fools'' going to school for education

How more you get educated , how more you know
how more you know, how more you'll forget
how more you forget, how lesser you know

so Education ish pointless in my view,

sorry..."education" in the topic title was misspelled..... -->my apologies



Unfortunately, most of the education you learn in high school and intermediate school are very impractical and overall... pretty useless. While there may exist some classes in High School that promote independent thinking and analysis, for the most part, high schools tell you how to think rather than teach you how to think and study. For the most part, doing well in high school is pretty much for college entrance and preparing you for heavy class loads and independent studying. It gets better in college. For example, I never studied in high school because it was annoying and boring; but now, I enjoy studying. Ironic ain't it?

On the other hand, education is important. On a very practical basis, based on what you're studying, it will get you jobs and such. Another aspect of education which is important is that it allows you to become a leader in the world. I know you hear this a lot and it gets annoying to hear, but to be honest, there's no better way to put it. You can't actively participate in improving the world without knowing what's going on in the world. In addition, education, primarily in humanities and history, allow you to surpass the boundaries of racism and narrow-minded views that plagued our ancestors.

schools is for developing you little thingis into persons
you wont need the stuff they teach you, but its no waste to just have thought about this shit at leat one time

at the end you have some basic knowlege and got a way of thinking, which leads you through your life


at last remember that teachers counldnt survive in a real job world. nearly 50%of those just failed somehow and ended up being a teacher. if they make you crazy remember that you will have the last laugh

nope. education isnt important at all. everything can always be solved with meditation. and if you pray to your god enough, he'll give you luck and money so you can live on.


well, at some times, you need some sacrifices to make god happy (you know, like how those aztecs did, with flashy style and all that). anyways, if the situations evolves into something more messy, just say "i didnt do it". it usually works so even if they dont believe you, just keep saying "i didnt do it" like theres no tomorrow. remember, faith is important.
