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.

People are no longer interested or value their education because philosophy is no longer emphasized in eduction. People are..... for example, given a math formula and told to provide calculations based on it. Sounds kind of boring. I'd kill myself if that's all education was. People need to start asking WHY in education. They need to go all the way back.

That would be nice, but that is not a formula for getting hired. The path of least resistance is to memorize the answers to questions you might be asked in an interview, and then to provide those answers.

this is partly why I dropped out of faculty. i'm now attempting to bypass lower back, yet I nonetheless experience a similar. I even ought to have 4 semesters of a overseas language. Which i'm getting will be efficient with the starting to be Spanish speaking inhabitants, even though it has no longer some thing to do with my container of learn. There are a pair different criteria that i have self belief a similar way about. Its like, enable me basically take the instructions that genuinely pertain to what i want to earnings. yet, on the different hand, this is sturdy to have a nicely rounded area of comprehend-how. only for existence. HS diplomas arent nicely worth a lot immediately because everybody has them. We pushed staying in college a lot that now everybody has a hs degree, so the subsequent problem is a 4 12 months degree. contained in the arrival decade, i imagine a similar will ensue back. we are pushing everybody to have atleast a 4yr degree, that quickly, everybody may have one and then they'll want masters. they want a larger element of practise bc it shows you may stick by ability of it to finish a objective that different applicants cant. Its a thanks to tell apart the better efficient workers from the 'no longer so better efficient' workers.Hope

people don't value their education now days because everyone knows everything. now especially with smartphones anyone can look up any topic and learn about anything on the fly... doesn't mean their experts on the subjects by no means but people seem to think they are because they read a article or watched some youtube vids..

What I have found in working with a college degree is most uneducated or somewhat educated workers with experience totally despise college educated workers even though the college educated worker is doing work that the uneducated worker with experience doesn't know how to do. Maybe its the fear mentality of 'He's gonna take my job'.

The sad thing is these uneducated workers with experience are usually in a supervisory or management role. As for whether I value my education my answer is a definite yes. I put significant work into earning my degrees. Its value to me is as a personal accomplishment more than a vehicle in getting high paid employment. Seems that most employers are more interested in certification and experience over college degree and experience.

Of course certification with a college degree is more valued by employers. If one has the money that is the way to go. IMO, the certification grind is a racket providing profit for the companies doing the testing and training.

I've lost track of the number of times that people on this forum have said that schools are liberal brain washing factories designed to create obedient zombies. Or that college is an expensive day care centre for millenial students, or a cash cow for hard left socialist professors who want to push gender neutrality on us.

So, should I value education or not?

I have a degree in woman's studies, a phd in gender studies, and a master in political correctness.

RESPECT ME.

And yes, this is all b s. It's hard to respect an education system when gender studies is considered to be a real subject

Most people live life blind. They don't want to see the truth because it's confusing or it's to much work. That's at least my take on it. You can't convince the unwilling.

Depends on the degree... lot of useless degrees out there that someone paid 6 figures for that will get you making about the same as a burger flipper to start out.

A BS in IT even with certs will start me out making less than I do right now as an Aviation mechanic so I am working on my Masters in security management, it is something I have to consider with a child now, if it was just me and the wife then meh we would make the change.
