WHY YOU NEED MORE EDUCATION

WHY YOU NEED MORE EDUCATION

The old approach to learning is to get knowledge. Knowledge was found in a classroom. School had a monopoly of classes.  The bright rose up, the not so clever dropped out. School also made social classes for those who got an education. The knows had the jobs while the know nots got to do the work. If you missed school, you missed knowledge.

If education is limited to school, then no one else is learning. This would mean that knowledge stays still and does not change. The value of a person in life must then be limited to the time in which he or she went to school.  After school, that value fades with time. School has fading returns in life unless that value is updated. You could go back to school or you could learn how to learn and then learn for life.

Education is too important to be limited to school. Your growth depends on you remaining relevant. The world is changing. Much as we may not want to change with it. It is changing us. And changing the way we see things. The good old days when everything was sure and easy are gone. We must now use the newer, available tools to realize the goals of long ago and where we want to go. For these three reasons, you need more education.
