    What for did / do you go to school ?

    In the very rapid information spread like this era, it seems that school is not the only place anymore to get education or science. If the function of school is to get knowledge; you can go to public library and find any book that you like for the science that you want; or you can browse any topic, website, or blog in your computer at the time you are on line. Or, do we, in this time, go to school only to get the certificate or the diploma from a legal institution so that we can use the paper to continue our study to the higher level ? How important is school in developing your character ?

    I think school is more to prove to who may hire you than the learning, although it does do somewhat more and stresses the points most important of your study. Having more education not only gives us the added knowledge but also confidence in ourselves and pride when we have done well.

    I would argue that there is a difference between information and knowledge.  Information being what you find in the library or on a computer and knowledge being the application of that information.  You need to interact with others to apply that information.  No matter how much a scientist works alone, his discoveries are going to be used in the real world on real people. They are not going to be use for him alone.

    Even though we can go to a library or a computer to gain information so easily in today‚Äôs world schools are still needed.  There is more to learning than just information.  How to apply that information in life is what school is all about. The exchange of knowledge between different people, in real time, face to face, is very important.  There is nothing like it.  You cannot create the same type of energy you get in a room of 20 -25 people solving a problem or exchanging ideas on the computer.  The library and the computer/internet are tools.  Very useful tools, but they cannot and should not replace human contact.
