I Think Education Is Important

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,343 People

    I'm so gutted I couldn't be in London today,

    to protest for #FreeEducation with my friends. Education is a right and not a privilege. Knowledge is power, and to make higher education inaccessible to so many is to limit their power. Power to the people, I say. The Tories want a better economy? Give students the potential to...

    Does Anyone Work In The UK (or Abroad) In A Community School?

    If so, what is your experience of it, positive or negative? This sprung from a conversation I had a few days ago with other Learning Support Assistants in the college where I work. We feel we have the professional and interpersonal skills, but obviously there is much more to it...

    Why Education Makes a Difference

    I believe that being educated, especially in a liberal arts setting, opens a person's mind to a certain degree.  I feel that through the courses you take and the experiences you undergo, communication skills are better, prejudices are lessened...because prejudice is really...

    A Friendly Gesture.

    I hated school while growing up. Got mostly barely passing grades in all but a few subjects, where the teacher made the subject interesting to me, and those I aced. But, at age 16 I dropped out and at 17 joined the navy. A Liutenant, whose name I can't remember, took a liking to...

    I think education is very important.

    But as educated people ,we are expected to be kind and considerate.But are we so all the time? Then why do we have racist attacks and white collar crimes.?We keep blaming others for our problems instead of dealing with them in the right way.Are we educated or just literate?

    Knowledge And Education

    I do think education is important. Education is a shield against ignorance. It is a key that opens up many doors. Work hard, learn, understand, just struggle for a few years so that you can be stable for many many years. For those who crawl, climb, sweat . . they...

    What if the reason most people don't like math,

    science and geometry is because how completely logical they are and what does that say about the mindset and educational (and yes, scientific) literacy level and sense of reality those people possess?

    Spirit and metaphysical are the next sciences for us to become with. Learning of the gods and the ancients will help us discover our inner selfs(souls). I think there is a LOT of information that is being COMPLETELY overlooked by most.

    Education is the key to life.

    If you really think about, all these low paying low class jobs like a cashier, waiter/waitress, delivery guy will be replaced by machines in the future and that us what scares me. People today need to go to school before the workforce is completely replaced.
