Are degrees in education essential to success in life?

  • YES YES YES

    Speaking as a whole, people will always need that degree to get a successful and future. yeah maby someone gets lucky and is born into a wealthy family, but not everyone is that lucky you know!!! Some people only rely on scholarships and grants just so than can be successful

  • COMPLETELY YES!

    Degrees in education are essential to success in life because there is less of a chance of success without one. There are people who can succeed without them and people who fail with them, but it's so hard to even get a foot in the door now without one that it's not worth the chance. People don't necessarily need degrees to be employable, but no one will give a chance otherwise.

  • Yes I agree they can increase your chances of getting hired and lead to economic growth.

    Having a degree can improve your chances of getting employed. Though a degree cannot guarantee an individual's success in his field, it does improve his chances of getting hired. Additionally a degree offers individual greater options to explore opportunities of their choice. It also improves the literacy rate and thereby helps in economical growth.

  • A degree in educations is essential to success in life.

    Financially speaking a degree is essential for success. I will say that there are the few people who have gone on to have financial success without the aide of a college education but it is not likely to happen. For many jobs a person will also need continued education even after a degree. Education to keep up on the changes in your chosen industry. With technology as it is today and the speed at which this world travels it is necessary to have a degree with education on the specifics of your chosen field. Granted, there are other ways to succeed in life, with family, friends and loved ones....but unless financial security is not one of your priorities a degree is a must.

  • It is necessary to earn university degrees for becoming a successful person. I do agree with the necessity of university degree. It gives people a

    Rounded experience of life, by academic study people learn the first lesson of their life. The university degree can increase the chances of getting hired and lead to economic growth, identify the knowledge of a person, it makes societies more strong and powerful. The degree can easily judge a person and it can also tell the interests of a person. 1 So in my opinion university degree is necessary to become successful in life.
    Firstly, university degree gives people a rounded experience of life. People who attend the university earn the experience in different aspects of life from different sectors. For example, a student who goes university can learn the real facts and earn knowledge from their academic books, teachers, friends which is not possible if s/he do not go to university. The university degree can increase the chances of getting hired, such as when someone has a limited time to find the experience and suitability of somebody he does not have the chance to go through his/her brain except the university degree. In the current world we found that there are more job chances for the graduate students rather than undergraduate students.
    Secondly, the university degree can identify the knowledge of a person. By just watching at the results of the university degree can give the view of that person’s knowledge. For example, if a student is good in his class and receive a high grade than he has more knowledge than others and vice versa. It leads to economic growth. For instance, a graduate student knows better about how to earn more money and how to live well with a limited money. S/he also knows better on the economic conditions of his/her society and family and can solve it.
    Finally, it makes societies more strong and powerful. There is a proverb that the ink of a knowledgeable person is more valuable than the blood of a martyr. For example, if there is a knowledgeable person in a society than anybody from outside think hundred times before they do anything wrong and another example is that it makes the society stronger in financial terms by earning more money. 2 Degrees in education are essential to success in life because there is a less chance of success without one.
    In conclusion, I would like to say that for a successful life, it is essential to have a university degree. As people receive experience from university and become more knowledgeable, friendly. Academic study makes people social and it helps a society to be strong and powerful. University degree also increases the chances of getting a dream job and leads to economic growth of the society. It identifies the knowledge of the person. The university degree can help others to judge a person and it can also tell the interests of a person. Finally, I would like to tell that university degree is the most supreme power of a person, which shows the ability of a person as well as the limitation

  • Education is a great way to have a wanting job.

    By education, people gain more knowledge and wisdom. Those kind of things help make way for people to have a worry-less, happy life. People who doesn't have homes and food are mostly people who are not educated well. This is the reason why education is very important for human life.

  • Lets go education!

    Education= life or GOOD life. Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! IT'S GOOD FOR YOU! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! IT'S GOOD FOR YOU! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education! Education!

  • It depends on what you want to be.

    To be a doctor, you have to take 12 years, unless your a fast learner, my dad wants me to go to college, I want to go to ASU it all depends. Like Michele Jackson, he was famous from singing, with is a natural talent. Unless... Illumanity confirmed. Aslo, you go thousands of dollars in debt. Students loan

  • Degrees in education are essential to success in life.

    Firstly, a degree gives you a chance to get a well paid job. You won't find any employer who wants non-graduates without any knowledge work for him. Secondly, many people say that there are many people that became successful without an academic degree such as Maradona, Bill Gates, Michael Jackson and so on... I'm sorry, but there are much more stars, politicians, famous people who have degrees. People who became successful in life without any degree really have a gift and they themselves and their parents helped them to develop this gift. And nowadays many people are too lazy to do something to reach their goals. I don't even want to talk about football players, it is off the subject. And finally, everybody say that many people with degrees are jobless. Well, who told you that get a degree is enough. What are you thinking about? That a university and a degree will give you a very good job and a high salary just after your graduation. Well, you are wrong. You have to make an effort to reach your goals and to make your way in the life.

  • Lacking an educational degree does not mean a person will not succeed; a degree is only an achievement and not indicative of a person's character or ambitions.

    Many, many people in our history have succeeded, some far beyond even general standards, without having a college or even a high school degree. Not having a degree does not mean a person is not ambitious or capable or even unintelligent. Walt Disney, for example, didn't graduate from college or high school and was enormously successful. He had the ambition and the motivation to press on and it paid off; others can do the same.

  • Absolutely a no!

    A degree is not an important key factor to success... Hard work is... In my point of view, school is only there to nurture people... Why waste time to get a diploma or degree, when you can spend your time working for someone else and in return, have someone else to work for you in future...

  • Two diplomas are better than a degree and experience adds to it even more.

    For example engineering is learnt by practical exposure to problems. Engineering shouldn't be learnt online or by correspondence. Similarly management is a practice and seldom learnt in a class room. Instead of having a degree in textile technology one can have a three year diploma in textile engineering technology and have a business administration diploma with a concentration on marketing, finance or general management. By the way today's employers are complaining about skill gap. Our education system is not exposing students to practicality or real world scenarios. Degrees are nothing but theoretical knowledge. A degree doesn't guarantee success unless you implement the knowledge practically. It also doesn't mean that a degree holder is always good at solving problems by the virtue of their education. Many subtleties are learnt on the job and cannot be taught in class room.

  • To be SUCCESSFUL a degree is not near essential

    According to the most recent US statistics the number of citizens hired with just a high school diploma or less was millions higher than all college graduates combined. On average a tradesman make about 46,000 dollars a year, and the average college student makes about 50,000 a year. If you account for the price of college a degree is not needed.

  • Not Necessary Because

    There are MANY rich and successful people who didn't even attend the school or high school or are university dropouts. There are many people who made great contribution to the world but didn't even go to school like wright brothers and Thomas Edison. I accept that there are great scientist who completed their education but as compared to so called non-educated ones, they are few. Why is that so many engineers and doctors remain unemployed, few gets low wages jobs who are not happy with their lives. Besides that, there are so many successful businessmen who didn't get any professional education. Though it is necessary for a balanced society to have good engineers, doctors and other professional but that should be limited to ones who's sole purpose and interest is to become that professional, he/she should make that profession their source of financial stable life but to do it for the betterment of the society, and it's duty of society to pay them well. In todays society, it has become a trend to get that well paid profession degree whether they have interest in that field or not, that's where supply and depend phenomena come, and they cry after having that degree. Where as in business, you don't need any professional degree or interest, just a little knowledge of how to use your brain, and the revenue is guaranteed. And when you have enough income, do whatever your interest is just dont make any profession to support your life and try to earn by working day and night, trapping in that life long rat-race. So to conclude, degree is not necessary for a successful life..

  • College is not a necessity for a successful life

    College is not needed to be successful. There are plenty of jobs that have high pay and has a great work-life balance that do not require a degree. Jobs such as mechanics, technicians, and even small business owners (all jobs that get good pay) do not require a degree, therefore it proves that you don't need a degree to be successful.

  • Degree is not needed but helps

    In today’s world, most jobs require you to have a college education. But it’s not always needed. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you won’t be successful. Although you may get more money when you have a college education, money isn’t always what makes you successful. Being successful to me is whether or not I am doing what I want to do and if i’m happy with what the outcome was. If I am not content in what i’m doing then i’m not successful. Whether you go to college or not, women still make less money than men do. The things I want to do when i’m older don’t necessarily need college, but i’m still going to get it because if it doesn’t work out, I still need to be sufficient myself.

  • Degrees are often overrated

    Having a degree is merely a status symbol - also depending on what career path you are taking. There are a lot of course offering degrees at tremendously expensive fees which doesn't leave the student equipped to do the job after graduation. It can be an overpriced stepping stone, but is not a final destination into success

  • Degrees in education aren't essential to success in life.

    Degrees in education aren't essential to success in life.It is mostly because if your degrees in education says that you can be a teacher,you still can be a firefighters.And even if you can be doctor you still can be a writer.Education is not essential to success in life.It is just my opinion.

A changing world

A good read is the Betrayal of the American Dream, Bartlette and Steel. They describe a US that has shipped many of the manufacturing jobs overseas and we don't have those Blue Collar jobs anymore for those who seek a trade in lieu of a college education which, by statistics, leads to a white collar job. Our government has instituted deregulation of many different market segments like: trucking, airline industry and most recently, the financial market segment and in each case it has caused more harm than good where job conditions are far worse i.E. More hours, less pay and less benefits. Employers today want to see applicants with college degrees who hold potential for growth within the organization and can contribute to the overall success. Unfortunately, Wall Street is now in control of key decisions being made by business leaders and our Congress goes along with those that are more wealthy that can influence and and buy votes, so the lesser educated and lesser social class will have even fewer opportunities in life to be able to "get rich quick", which seems to be the goal of the millennial generation. My suggestion is to get a job early to earn money and understand that having money will influence every major decision in your life. Get a college education as the number of opportunities will grow and learn to talk in an adult world about real world issues to gain the respect of those who can help you in life. More often than not, its your ability to relate to people, utilize your education and catch a break that will help you toward success. Many times people say its who you know, not what you know that will get you further than the other guy and often this is true, but you'll never get that exposure to the 'who you know' if you can't get into their circles. Unless we quickly establish incentives for companies to bring manufacturing jobs back to the US, we will become a nation of less opportunity. Noone ever said it would be easy and you have to work for the rewards in life.
