Education In Today’s Society

educationI wish to talk about the topic of education. Is it still important? Has it altered? Is it much better? Or is it even worse? When I was maturing as a child I was always informed that getting a great education is the secret to success even from those who never ever completed college or even High School.


Going with elementary school, JR high school, and secondary school was not easy.

Obviously there were other things I wanted to do as a children besides going to school everyday. But as I went into senior high school it got even tougher for me to go and complete school. I discovered myself cutting course and getting failing grades. To be sincere, I hardly completed secondary school, all I cared is that I finished.

Soon after secondary school I put on a few colleges and naturally I did not enter. Then I attempted to try to find work and I had concerns with discovering work. Ultimately and finally I went to task corps. But before job corps I served in American Conservation National Service Program. I finished my Task Corps technical training and lastly went into the labor force.

There were strange things that I seen that was happening during these times and some individuals I understood. People who completed college could not get jobs! It was all over the news! Individuals losing their jobs that were college graduates and buried in college debt! Then I understood that me never ever completing college was not that bad!

book_and_applesIn my viewpoint education has actually altered greatly. It is not as excellent as it utilized to be. Do not get me wrong education is still good and you can still do fantastic things with finishing and getting a quality education however it’s really not necessarily the key to success in life. Some of the worlds most effective men and women dropped out of school and are making millions and billions doing it. Money they would have NEVER made finishing college.

Hopefully you do not see this as me bashing education. I am not bashing it or downing any individual who still believes that it is the key to success in life or who are in school. I just want to open the eyes of everybody and let you know that whether you get a good education or not you still have a chance of being a success. As long as you strive and think in yourself.
