There's a difference between schooling and a good education.
Learning anything should not cost.
The ultimate goal of teaching someone something is the hope of getting the maximum benefit out of that person for the things they've learned.
But, getting a good education does not mean it's good for the learner. We are forced to learn the things that the system wants us to learn, not what
we need to learn.
If schools taught a few different subjects, for example, human behaviour and its consequences, perhaps the world might be a better place.
Clever children from poor families face being overtaken by less bright children from affluent homes, research suggests.
The findings are part of a study for the Sutton Trust which says UK social mobility has not improved since 1970.
It says rich children are catching up with poorer peers in developmental tests between ages three and five and will overtake them by the age of seven.
When you decide the education level of a person by the temporary financial gain you get from the student, then you have got a big long term
I'm sure there are many people who have gone to Harvard or Oxford and have been outshone in their respective jobs by people who didn't attend
colleges or Universities.
I never went to college or university. I was forced, by my father, to get a full time job at age 16. Now, I'm multi skilled. Jack of all trades,
master of none.
Yet I feel I've had an immense education from life and living and the variety of jobs I've had.
Most of my working life has been cut sort on several occasions due to Englands many problems since the Thatcher years. I've had no choice but to swap
and change my skills to suit the moment.
I've worked with cars, have helped build houses, run mainframe computer systems (ICL VME 3980 systems) been a motorcycle courier, plumber and now I
own my own two small businesses, so success is what you make it, no matter your level of education.
Forrest Gump is a prime example
If the world was not so interested in teaching about financial gains or how ro control everyone else, I'm sure this topic would be a lot different,
and so would our lives.
