Do you ever feel you should have had a different kind of education?
No because my father did the best he could at the time by sending me to an elite secondary school in the area and what you build on that is what counts.
Yes because I think I would have probably had a chance to pursue my dream of becoming a doctor given a different approaoh to subject selection.
But you can't cry over spilt milk just make lemonade with the lemons you've been given.
Much of it is probably destined anyway.
No, I don't. I'm extremely grateful for the education I received during my life, both formal and informal. It has been a fantastic tool for everything I have achieved, and a helpmate when things have looked really black.
On my profile there is a short description of some of the highlights of this educational experience.
I went to nursing school in the 80's and earned a L.P.N certificate. I'm proud to say I worked in geriatrics for many years and raised two beautiful children doing so. After my youngest child graduated high school I changed careers. Nursing doesn't interest me now. I'd prefer to have an education in elementary education or human services.
Easily. I grew up around homeschool students. I know two brothers who are teaching classes at the community college and are 13 and 15. It's all about who you are around.
Oh for pity sake. You can't teach in college at the age of 13 or 15 - you exaggerate, deary.
No. I'm not. The younger one has made money creating apps for iphones related to the economy. The older one is teaching a computer class at the community college. You should also look up Jacob Barnett. There are plenty of intelligent children.
Silly girl - of course there are "plenty of intelligent children."
Excellent answer, Iburmaster! Short and to the point! Yes, I agree, children can be very surprising. There was a team of children from my country who got involved in research about ladybirds living in space, and were even invited to NASA. Keep it up!
By the way, I began my teaching career at age 16 - so a word to the wise - be careful what you assume.
What a coincidence, I also began my teaching career at 16!, that was 56 years ago! Still teach and enjoy it.
If you mean by career, then yes. I think that i should have stuck with computer programming as it is a very progressive field and the pay is pretty good too.
No, I am glad that I got my Bachelor of Arts in Education and for the two years in Early Childhood I got, if I would have changed my mind, my choice would have been Journalism, but I decided to teach and am glad I did it. Journalism, Photography and Music are my big loves besides that of Education.
I think my education would have been better if I had been more involved in it. That said, it may have been beneficial for me to go to a private school where teachers take the time to involve you, rather than the public school system that I drifted along in. I didn't take education seriously until I finally went to college and had some friends who encouraged me to study. My grades in college were a great contrast to the ones I had in High School.
Yes. While I ultimately did get a bachelor's degree in Business Administration, in my mind, it was a "basic" degree. At the time, being young and naive of the ways of the world, I chose to go with a basic business education - something general that would serve me across most business arenas. I wish I had been more definitive in my selection. But, when I was young, I didn't know what I wanted to do when I grew up. Now, I do. And, while I now do exactly what I want to do as a writer, I wish I had spent more time learning about the craft of writing so that it would all come easier for me. But, I can't change it now. All I can do is talk about it.
No. I believe I had the right type of education that nurture what I am now. I do hope to do the same for my kids.
It is hard to teach the right values to kids as there are so much influence in school with other kids who are not be taught the right way.
I generally don't live in the past. I'm glad to have had the opportunity to attend college when I did and to have continued my education throughout my life. It was not my choice to be a nurse, but when I was going to college there were not many career choices available to women. Had there been, I would have chosen a different career path. However, I was still able to pursue my interests on the side and ultimately end up in a chosen career.

If you are a college grad, do you think all the work, etc, was worthwhile?I have a Master's Degree that was earned long before things became so costly, so I feel the cost and effort were worthwhile. I don't know if I would feel that way these days. How about you?

Should high schoolers be able to choose core classes based on a choice of future career?Sophomores and upper classmen only though... they already have prep-classes that you can choose, but is that enough. Kids with 4.0's through high school bust their butts on learning useless information (like why...
