    What will prevent a promising youth from

    dropping out of college / school (not for financial reasons)? I am not saying college is the only option. I mean most Education systems are designed for vast majority of average intelligence. How to take care of people who cannot fit into it for some reasons?

    Education is the bread of the soul.

    And by "education" I don't just mean knowing the Newton's laws. I mean critical thinking. I mean manners and behaviours, I mean drawing the lines between real and fake, I mean knowing what's good and bad, knowing what's propaganda and what's not. This is real education and the...

    Its different being a student

    and being a parent. You can really see how important education is after having your own children. I home school my children so I can see first hand. I hope soon there can be a way that every child can afford education. Message me and say hello! Id love to hear from you

    The only way for a system to keep it's people

    dormant and focussed on personal anger, misfortune and jealousy, to keep them far away from the important bigger picture in life, is to provide biased and simple education. Educating yourself is the key to growing in life.

    I recently got my doctorate in education.

    I don't intend to actually teach, though. It was more for a purpose in having credentials. I work for an educational concern and my job entails writing, illustrating, and editing. I enjoy it very much and it pays more than what a university professor would get.
