Education and School are two different things. School and hard work would be siblings but school would be a distant relative. Education is the key but why do we have to go to school to get it. Any more becoming educated is becoming the encyclopedia of dry facts that are only used for the test and all of these facts are stuff you could google at any time. So why do we need to go to school to achieve being educated.

To begin my argument, I have to start by looking at your statement from a literal standpoint. The definition of education as written in the dictionary is, "the process of receiving or giving systematic instruction, especially at a school or university." And the definition of school? "An institution for educating children." So yes, education is not equivalent to school, but education comes as a direct result of schooling. Based on the exact definition of education, you need some sort of instruction or schooling to achieve it, making school very necessary for education. Further, your argument about googling any necessary information is invalid, because without schooling, how would we learn to read or write? How could we possibly learn to search for topics if we didn"t know how to spell them, or read up on the information about them? And without school, where would we learn to ask questions? Without a basic understanding of numbers and science and literature- which comes with education, which, as I"ve already pointed out, is a direct result of schooling- how do we know what questions to ask ourselves? Without teachers presenting us questions that tell us what is important, how do we decide what is important?

Why do we go to school. "To make ourselves success full in the dog eat dog world." Education is the key. But why send us to school. Education does not mean to go to school. Hard work and education are siblings but school is a distant cousin. (Suli Breaks) Mark Twain once said "I never let my schooling interfere with my education." To understand this you need to dig deeper.
Education is the key but why do we need school to get an education. Education has been confused with fact gathering. "There is more than one way in this world to become an educated man" (Suli Breaks) Any more becoming educated means becoming the encyclopedia of dry facts to take a test about something that you will probably never use later on. "Everyone is a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it"s stupid" " Albert Einstein. The success of students is measured by their ability to repeat what they have been told on to a piece of paper, but is education supposed to be about filling ones head with facts and terms than can be looked up on Google at any given time? (Why I hate School but Love Education)
School can actually get in the way. Thinking outside the box in school is like stepping outside of the bunker in the middle of the war. You are wanting to get yourself killed. They encourage it but why do they shoot down your ideas after you show them it. They do not want you to change the education system if you can call it that. They want everyone to leave school the exact same. It"s a factory move kids in and out make them just good enough to make it to the next level and only that level. They put kids on a behavior plan so that the other students don"t get the same ideas and rebel against the school.
Did you know every nine seconds a student drops out of school. Why? Most find it irrelevant and uninteresting. What if education was tailored to every student instead of the commonly used one size fits all. And if we were seen as teenagers instead of little numbers on big spreadsheets

A teacher once told me you could go your entire school career failing, but still be a genius

School is the only thing that will tell people you are educated, because nobody will believe you are educated without school even if you are the smartest man alive. Pretty sad imo.
