Go for it, study your brains out but you nee a balance between school and the real world (socializing) is what i believe

is education really that important???



Education is important that much I can say based from EXPERIENCE..

School however is not really important unless you like to start working with high payoffs $20/hr above..

Think of it this way..
1.) You attend school and study hard until the last day.. You will have sacrificed your precious youth into reading books and stuff.. However, it all pays off in the end since you are given a good position (After you graduate from college/university granted that you have honors/ or graduated with flying colors)

2.)You did not attend school/ Dropped out of school.. You did find some work (sales for the sake of arguments).. It pays low at first then maybe after 2-5 years of HARD WORK, 50 percent chance that you will be promoted to be able to match the salary of a regular University Graduate student.. (50 percent chance because some business when hit with the effects of recession tend to lay off workers with the HIGHEST/HIGHER wages in order to save money... REALITY is never fair for as long as human beings value THEMSELVES before OTHERS)

So in short, either way you need to work hard in order to have a good life.. It's just up to you whether you want to do it in school or at work..

Also, Education is IMPORTANT however, there are many ways of being educated other than schooling.. You never learn EVERYTHING from just going to school..

As a matter of fact, yes. Education is definitely important. And without it, you're just useless person with no knowledge of anything. Might as well go jump off the bridge while you're at it.

No, if i could pick up a manual and read it, then school is unnecessary. Hows that for the hard truth?

Yes. Study harder and educate yourself by watching intelligent programs and talking to smart people so you don't ask dumb things again.

Education is power.

When you learn things outside your little tiny world, you start to expand. For centuries women weren't allowed to learn how to read or write because eduacated men knew that reading expands you and makes you question concepts.

How are you supposed to understand the world without an education?

i think that education is kinda over rated in the sense that they base your grades and "knowledge" on things that everyone has to repeat...anyway in the world we live in today it is very important to be able to get jobs and things even though i think they really could sum it down...but who am i to question the educational system...
