Yeah I think it is. Without education (unless you get lucky and win the lottery or something similar) it's likely that you won't get far in life.

Confucian Values ~ Cultivates diligence and hard work. Studying makes you set goals and gives you pressure to excel. Builds a strong work ethic.

Practical Uses ~ Knowledge is built upon. So...like knowing your Calculus you would be able to build upon already existing foundations and possibly discover more things. Technology is a great example ~ without knowing what happened before people wouldn't be able to advance.

If you were educated you would know why it is important. You would know why you are studying so much, right?
Education is the most important thing you could do while you live on planet earth. With it, you could grow in there, if you
know what I mean. You could defend yourself; change things; be someone. It's ridiculous question and I have
no idea why I'm answering it.
Of course its important; do you want to be ignorant for the rest of your life?

Just remember this no one is better than you and your not better than anyone else. We're all equal whatever our jobs are.

i personally didn't graduate highschool I was all fuck school. I don't have a job but I probably make a lot more money than some people that have went to college and highschool.
i sell marijuana to a lot of people. I make about $350 a day soemtimes up to . I am an honest person I am not harming anyone. I have doctors. lawyers, etc coming to me. The rest of my time goes to training in martial arts.


You're selling marijuana yet claiming not to be harming anyone? Nice.


umm ,marijuan adoesnt kill people dumbfuck. nor does it make people sick.
alcohol kills people. drunk driving and killing the liver fuck that. You dont here bout people being too stoned to drive now do ya.


Depending on how you use marijuana, it CAN be very dangerous. For example: When you SMOKE marijuana, it has 20 times more ammonia and five times more hydrogen cyanide and nitrogen oxide than tobacco smoke. It may also pose a high risk of lung and breast cancer. If consumed many times a day, in the long term, it can lead to heart attacks and stroke.

Thanks for proving that you really did never went to school.




I'm going to add my part, on telling the idiot (that clearly should have stayed in school) why marijuana kills.
You realize how many people are slaves to making marijuana? Even if you grow it, or whoever supplies it
grows it. There are innocent people around the globe dying, while the work growing it. It might not have to
do anything with you, but just know that you continue to sell, and they (customer) will continue to demand more.
That means more people dying to grow it. So YES, marijuana kills in ways you have no idea.
You don't know how to write properly and yet you think you're something. You sell weed for fucks sake! You're an
amateur. You're nothing.
It's a shame people think marijuana is safe. Smoking a joint is like smoking 15 cigarettes. Cigarettes
give people cancer right? You should be able to tell what happens if you smoke dope.

Yes it's important. We don't want another Charles Guiteau situation on our hands. Or do we?

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?

- no, it wont cause choas. crime doesnt cause choas, because in the USA-statisticly, most criminals dont get convicted or caught. only half of all crimes get reported. and like 12% r actually tried in court and found guilty.makes sense if u know how the justice system works.
and those that do get caught, usually get a light sentence- like a few months. and r back on the street doing what they used to do. peace over war

As much as I hate to admit, education is important in life, and it would be more welcome if the teachers not just hammering knowledge into students's head....

All in all, i think it's a good thing, just make sure you have an open mind about other things.

yep, schools were built by the same people who built prisons.and no, it hasnt moved from that purpose. it is still a place to force children out of thier individuality, and force them into "good citizens"- quote from my high school theme song.

Well if you're taking algebra, that can help you decide which soap is cheaper to buy, the gas mileage you're getting, etc

um...no. you can tell a cheaper price of soap by simply looking at the price tag. Gas mileage is told to you on your car. why waste time trying to figure it out by your self? just get an iol change and let the professionals tell you. most of the stuff u use in school wont apply to real life at all.And niether does college stuff, unless it relates to your major.

A physics class can simply help you out in almost anything that applies to the realm of life.

like what? most of that is simply common sense and will never need to be calucated by the adverage person.

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.

well its a social experience that people can do without. all it does is force children into some puesudo environment where they r forced to join some "click" and make them selves feel serperior to everyone else by bullying and hurting ne one who isnt in that "click". And for those who choose to be loners to escape all the bullshit- they r simply screwed. Didnt u know the exact same thing happens in prison?just throw in a few security guards in the schools and a prison is what u will get...wait....they have already done that....

and no, you will never use trig in ne thing out side of a job dealing with math.

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.

LOL. if they didnt spend 9 hrs a day in school, they would have time for that. and the USA school system has tons of flaws. Like people getting shot in the schools. Kids not passing ne of the major test to pass. Teachers not doing their job. Parents not caring.Integration.Ignorance. stupidity. and that foolish rule "everyone deserves an education" AKA- everyone is forced to get one.Even the people that dont want to be there.

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.


o yes, the key to true success is knowing who to blame for your failures peace over war

Well.. It's hard for me to accept the fact you're somewhat intelligent with all of those spelling errors but I do agree with you somewhat.

Sure technology helps a lot, and that's the new question of the day. Is technology making our society worse by making us lazy? I believe it to an extent yes. We should challenge ourselves, even if it's just calculating MPG's I do it for my car, simulating the brain even somewhat keeps me from going brain dead.

They aren't forced to join some "click" they choose to, they choose to be a loner, there is no one forcing them to do anything. But then again, i'm an existentialist and believe that we make our own decisions and there is no set path for us. We create our destiny, not god. It's society in general that fucks up kids, not school alone, you're just using school as a scape goat for the bigger picture.

I never said that the US school system was good

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
Parent's not caring, ignorance, and stupidity has nothing to do with schooling. It all comes down to poor parenting and a lack of time within a parent's day to help the kids out with normal children/teenage issues everyone goes through. I believe that if we were to not have some sort of schooling system people would automatically think "I'm to good for this, why do i even have to go?" And all of that negativity would then lead to you choosing not to go to school. Not to mention at 15, who the fuck wants to sit in a classroom all day learning about world war 2? I don't.. But you get older, you mature, and you figure out, hey good thing i went to school otherwise i wouldn't be able to afford the outrageous cost of living. You shouldn't get the choice from 1-18 to choose if you want an education or not because you're not an adult, you're not mature enough to make that big of a decision on your own, and you're sure as hell not ready for the real world.
