How much practical value did you derive from your education?


does college make a dfference anywhere other than applying for a job? How would you compare the value of your education to what you have learned since?

    That's what I was trying to say. I don't have a college degree, but I am considered an expert in my field because of the time and experience I've had. There's alot of emphasis put on higher education, but it's not always necessary.

    I am not sure which side your answer falls on. I suspect that you don't adduce philosophers as evidence of education that has practical application in the world of work. Nor am I sure how entrance requirements or occupying seats pertain.

    I think that you touch on what prompted me to ask the question. It seems to me that I learned far more from work experience.

    That said, I am grateful that my humanities education introduced me to an appreciation of literature.
