    Do you think that social life is equally important as education?

    I believe you receive an education through your social life: life skills such as negotiation, communication, service, etc.

    However, for students in program of study, academic obligation supercede social engagements for the season of study.

    In American society, the social life is considered by most to be the essence of education. As a result, we are a nation of hustlers that can easily navigate their way through any bureaucratic process better than anyone else in the world. Automated customer service over the phone? No problem. On the other hand, we are becoming a nation that thinks fame, money, and nepotism is the end all be all.

    We could use more of a balance with an in-depth public education--objective sciences and social studies are in order. Our biggest problem is that our students graduate and still don't know anything. Americans throw up their arms baffled at politics and geography. Meanwhile, the answers are very simple when you understand the historical context of events. But we don’t study history here. Our history is nothing more than an extension of the New Testament—the hagiographical accounts of several larger-than-life political figures that the History Channel reveres as gods (with a few exciting wars thrown in for the guys to read about).

    We have always placed an emphasis on social life over education. In Texas, we have these things called "High Schools", which are nothing more than training facilities for future college athletes. Young women are taught how to wear makeup there.

    There needs to be a balance between social life and education. Ignorance (lack of knowledge: "education") can lead to a life of social and economic poverty. If you don't have an understanding of how things work, it will be difficult to get a job. If you don't have social skills, it will be extremely difficult to develop relationships or even keep a job. So, if you have an adequate education, enough training and continue learning throughout your life it will make your life experience more meaningfully positive. The thing to remember is that learning takes place intellectually and emotionally so formal and informal education is the key.

    Living In a small rural area where 1/2 the population is Old Oder Amish you can really see how not socializing a child affects them.They Are only educated to the 8th grade they can speak two languages English and their Dutch German.The kids where the parents have shops and are around English people (what they call any one who is non Amish ) are more verbal they can carry on a conversation with out being shy or intimidated some of them will just stand and look at you when you speak to them not because they are not allowed they just don't know how to carry on a conversation with someone outside of their little world.These kids are smart kids they are just not socialized and they would be completely lost outside of the Amish settlement.

    yes social life is extremely important as education. Man is considered to be a social animal and has to be a part of the society. Education is a tool to help you develop your social and personal skills. Dearth of knowledge can lead to disastrous consequences. One needs to remember, social  life is the essence of education.
