Education is still the way forward, it is never an old choice.

Education is still the way forward, it is never an old choice.
The other day, I was going through some documentaries and I saw where some of the top business people that we have in the world saying that for one to get to the top, they should care more about the business world and less about education. This has made lots of people to believe that it is not essential for us to focus on getting the right education.

I think that we shouldn't discard education no matter what people say about it. I think that we should support the idea of people getting educated first before thinking about going into business. Do you agree with that?

Agree

No knowledge, no power

I still believe that with right education, you have many opportunities in your way. It's still important to have a proper education. I don't have anything about people who are at the top of businesses. But, not all can survive with wits and being street smart, there are people who need to be educated well so they can survive in real life.

Education will give you the edge.

Having an education gives you an edge. You are presented with better opportunities, higher-paying, more stable & sustainable jobs, leading to better financial security. Education also opens our eyes to the bitter realities of the world.

Advantage

I believe that education allows you to specialize a specific topic. This will in turn create more opportunities for you. I understand how most businesses do not look into one's education but to one's skills because where is the education if you are not capable. However, it is also important to consider how education shapes a person. How it changes their perception, their manners, their ignorance and the like. It is crucial for a person's development.

It is great to have knowledge

Education is a great thing. It can give you many advantages in life, for example, advantages regarding job position. Many companies require from their potential workers to be educated. Also, when someone is educated, it means that they have wider knowledge about the World which may imply that such people are more tolerant than those who are not educated. So my vote goes for education!

To be quite honest, I kind of understand how a person in charge of a business would feel that education is less important to them than focusing on business. The fact is that a lot of leaders of huge companies aren’t actually all that educated about the products that their companies produce. For example, there aren’t many CEOs of video game companies that know how to actually program a video game—they’re all about the business aspect of it.

Education is important for the people who want to work for those companies and produce actual content, but the leaders need to know little more than how to advertise their product in a way that sells it.

Education is still important. There are many folks who are interested in studying but they can't afford to study so basically they are more likely want to earn because they have insufficient money for them to study in schools and universities until they come into the point where in they needed money for living so choosing between the two, they will just prefer to earn than study.

Education is still the way forward, it is never an old choice: Yes thats true Education is the wealth you have that no one can stole it from you. Those individual that don't pursue there education but handling a business now it is maybe because that he/she has a relatives or connections withbthat certain business already and if non she/he has enough capital to build his/her own business. how about those individual who don't have a connection? the thing they have is the education they have in there selves to compete to those in another way of basis.

I still have to go with getting education. Not all people are like those businessmen who are at the top of their game. At least, education is a tool for you to have greater opportunities.

I think people are just different in their own way. You should not rely on a single thing for ultimate success. Why would you force yourself to study in school if your passion doesn't require you to have a proper education? It is basic to have one but in the real world, skill and attitude are more important. Some skills require a proper education though. That would be the case that I'll agree.

I think that getting educated is very necessary even if you are planning to venture into any kind of business or profession. Once you are well educated, you will have greater confidence to face all the challenges in your business or profession. When you are well educated you will have a lot of Employment options even if you are not able to be successful in your business or profession. However, one can also be successful in his profession or business even if he has not received any formal Education

Education is still important. Yes it's possible to be successful without being "educated". There are quite a lot of college/high school dropouts who are very successful now, anyone can do that too with the right connections and a lot of hardwork. Keep doing what you love to do but go to school just in case you fail, success is not for everybody.

I agree that education is still the way forward. I just think that we need to re- imagine the way we offer education. I think that education is not going to school and assessing students according to how much knowledge they can retain and put down in 2-3 hours. Education is finding learning through practical experience and coming up with a way to offer solutions in a new way to old problems. This is why it is said the A students are academics, the B students are CEO's and the C students hire both the A and the C students.

Of course. A lot of things can be learn outside school but education is your weapon to the real world. You have to have a background for you to survive this very demanding society. We were sent to school to ve prepared for a life.long battle. It will never gets old. I just hope that they can teach the kids something that they can apply in the real world. More practical subjects that will hone and discover their skills for them to develop it and use it for their future.
