• No. What better for a child to do then spend their youth learning and preparing for life?
  • Absolutely not. There is nothing more precious than knowledge. Being educacted opens more than just doors and opens minds.
  • Only if people's time would be put o good use (versus hangin' out at the mall or the video arcade)
  • Not at all. Maybe my last year of high school, but not the rest of it. When you are older you are in a better frame of mind to really understand so much more than as a child when you can't get a big picture of life. And you still learn more as you get older.
  • Oh my gosh, no!!!!! There is sooooo much to know and so little time to acquire even a bit of it. If I could change anything in this world it would be to ensure that all people had a college education. Just think how different the world would be if each child's parents had a college education. . . in whatever they wanted to study . . . anything!!!!
  • Unfortunately that sounds a lot like someone who is trying to rationalize quitting school. It is, in fact, the dumbest thing I ever heard but if you lack the capacity to study or get deeply involved with a topic of study then you're right, it's a waste your time. The benefit of higher education is crazy beneficial in many ways but you might just not have the capcity or the ambition. Flipping burgers at McDonalds pays lousy and it's boring work but it is one way to live your life.
