    Here in America, education is over rated. I spent 100,000 US dollars. And could not find a job. In what I went to school for. Then you have people like Mark Zuckerberg, and Bill Gates that dropped out of college. And they are billionaires.

    I do not agree with this opinion about education. In our time many young people have a dream to get high education and in the future find job in different companies. I have the same opinion. Sometimes studying can be hard, you will not have enough time for it. So in such cases you can use help with studying from friends or some writing services like Paperell and others in writing paper compositions.

It's a very valid, though perhaps lightly a subjective question wether a traditional education is a waste of time.

    I've finished only high school and last several years I was mostly skipping through it all, just visiting from time to time, spending rest of it on walks and wanders. I can tell you that I in no way feel more limited in my knowledge and intellectual capacities than those who had high school, university and degree and so. However, I do think I might have had it more easier had I actual diplomas or some profession behind me, but then again, I know lots of people who are in their 30s and still learning, and then those who had the best university possible behind them and forced to work in MCDonalds (At least for a while) because those professions are stuck in a loop "To hire you we want references from your previous work in same field which you don't have because you never worked in this kind of work before hence we won't hire you". Me, I'm stuck with oddjobs right now here and there but because I'm aiming to be a storyteller it's a different story, pun intended. I think the best advice would be "Don't waste your time." If you feel like school does not teach you anything, quit it and do what you think will bring you more, try it, try that and this, be productive for yourself, but Do Not Waste Your Time. Don't just go from something because it's a waste of time, and then waste your time. Always do something about your time, in formal ways, in a new, creative ways, and you'll get somewhere. Sit on your mama's couch thinking it all gonna come by itself, and you'll Waste Your Time As Fuck (Trust me, I Know that ; ) ). Also, never quit something when you are already more than half way through to it. Like some people are like "Fuck university" on a last year, and that's definitely five years wasted. Finish it already and put that diploma behind your belt, it'll be useful at some point somehow, and in the meanwhile you'll decide what you really want, with having at least something from that wrong direction you took, but still with progress made rather than being back at point zero.

    haha, what a rant...Usually those who fail in getting proper education claim it is a waste of time and energy. You are stuck in odd jobs exactly because you have no proper education and cannot find a job that would be different because wherever you go, you're asked what education and experience you actually have. I'm not saying being educated means one's life is complete but it is always better to be educated than to be illiterate as education means not only being able to find better opportunities in life but also being able to protect yourself. Education also means better salary as for example an educated computer programmer can earn a decent sum even where I live while an armchair philosopher with no education, a dreamer with no proper skills will always end up cursing education and their dull life with odd jobs and low wages.

    Of course education is a waste of time. Who need education. For example, me speak perfectly without education. Education overrated. Me hungry. Me go eat now.

I am an engineer by education, and I am a very creative person at the same time (found of music, animation, etc). So I start my self-education in animation. I don't have any problems in songwriting, but it was very hard to organize all of my thoughts for writing scripts and essays. Here's a guide to writing a reflective essay VIRUS Anyway, all of the knowledge, that I get in my university helped me in the creating process. So I think that there is no difference what kind of education will you choose, the main thing that it should satisfy you.

    I guess it is also depends on an attitude. 'Cause if you're strongly believe it is a waste, more likely it will be for you. Because you won't take it serious and won't work for it. But if you're highly motivated and you know the purposes for getting that kind of education you need - you will definately take advantages of education and won't feel it was (is) a waste.

    School pretty much failed me, I wasn't interested in many of the subjects because I couldn't see how they could possibly use the content once I had left, it also turns out I was terrible at school exams, so I left school feeling that my experience of formal education had failed me - Oh I was very good at a particular sport though.
    It wasn't till enlisting in one of the UK Armed Forces that I got involved in technical things, realised I had a very good spatial awareness in different subjects, started passing trade exams at 98 or 99%.
    I've then had decades solidly based in computing, I have never stopped learning, I've even taught particular complex aspects.
    So has education been a waste - yes, has learning, NO!
    The thing is, there is no 'one size fits all' - for some an apprenticeship suits, others a degree or masters helps them, I would note one thing though, at various times I've trained people joining to do what I did, having a degree is not a good measure of intelligence or maybe I've just met some really dumb graduates, the ability to apply learning can be a huge step above having a piece of paper saying 'I did this', what you do with it THEN, is the hard part.
