    I think education is very important.

    I just think the way we (USA) Go about it is all wrong. Nobody wants to wake up early in the morning for 5 days a week to go to a place that is very prison like and forcefully taught stuff that they may not even use in their life. Okay I think it is perfectly fine through...

    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...

    self-education—it's all very important. I find it sad when people do not value education. Without education, we cannot progress and become better human beings.

    True education isn't the school system.

    The school system is designed to teach you to become a slave. The greatest thing in school I learn was social skills and deal with different personalities

    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.
