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?
sort by best latest
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.
Academics, you don't have to learn from school. It can be taught at home. The practical side of life we learn on our own,by interacting with others. No need to go to school for that. You asked for the value of my education. I answered it is priceless
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.
I think that's what parents are for
