I've met a few people in my life that aren't really interested in an education, they think that you can do without an education and do other jobs, and they are interested in only the social aspect of it. People need to value their education more. If we are ever going to become an educated society people need to value their education more. It's not a matter of going through grades kinger garden through college and grad school and then whatever school after that and just getting good grades, in order to learn, a student must be willing to learn and consent to the idea of learning. Not enough students care about their education. They could care less about math, science, and history, they end up working at safeway, or, some other mediocore job, and they really don't get far in this world because they didn't put the effort earlier on in their life to further their education.
I believe that people need to value education more. We are taught in school what we aught to know in life. Those that don't pay attention in school don't learn what they aught to know in life.
My question to you is why don't people value education as much as they should? Our education system is designed to educate people yet if people don't care about education they won't become educated. Education standards should be raised, and, more people should start paying attention to their education.
