    Would the world be a better place if everybody was educated?

    Most constitutions advocate for free primary and secondary education for citizens in order to have a more literate population.

    Certainly the world would be a sweet, livelier and a better place to live in if all of its populace are schooled.  What I'm saying is that negative traits like greed, avarice, bigotry, enviousness, racist, covetousness, hypocrites, self centered, habitual liars, cruel and all its ramifications are erased from the world's lexicons.

    Having a diploma but ill-mannered will not make one eligible to contribute to the upliftment of the general welfare

      Your diploma remark reminds me of a fellow who once talked about "Educated fools"

    I don't think it's quite so important for people to be EDUCATED as it is for people to NOT ACT SO DAMN STUPID!!!!!

    Yes I think if everybody in the world could get enough education in all subjects they found interesting there would be an adequate amount of  intelligent entrepreneur and inventors creating entertainment, food, cures,  transportation and a lot of other things.

      Seems like education is not bad at all for everybody's sake

    I believe the question to be unanswerable. I've known uneducated people who had the kindest hearts, most gentle nature and successful lives. In contrast I've known highly educated people with doctorates who had no living skills whatsoever and were negative radicals who brought no joy into the world at all. Perhaps the answer lies in defining "educated" and about what. Great question!
