Thread: Is education even necessary?

    Is education even necessary?

    Why do people even need a formal eduction?

    Dave Thomas dropped out of high school at the age of 15. He was the founder of "Wendy's" fast food stores.

    There are millions of stories of Americans who became wealthy with no real education. This belies a well known fact-you don't use anything you learned in school in the real world.

    It is good to be smart, but better to be ambitious.

    Umm, yes. What the hell kind of question is that?

    I'd agree our current education sucks, it's too conservative. But that's not to bash education entirely

    Too much patriotism and Christianity in our schools.

    Some of the education systems are lacking in basic knowledge, but parents can fill the gaps by teaching their kids at home in conjunction with what the school teaches them. Leaving kids to flail about in a huge sea of education without a life jacket makes for a stupid adult.

    I don't know about everyone else but if I need an operation he or she had better have a formal education.

    Dave Thomas is clearly the exception, not the rule.
