    Do you think the education taught in school and colleges are useful for the jobs available ?

    In your opinion, the things we learn in schools and colleges are used outside it too in our day to day life or the jobs we are employed for. Whether the degree and knowledge we got after lot of hard work are used other than preliminary screening of the jobs.

    Colleges, I'm not sure. But other grades of school, I don't think so, at least not the common American educational system. After we learn the basics in elementary school, only some of that information becomes useful depending on where we go in life If you excel in history, and become an archeologist, how useful is your knowledge of a popular novel going to be when you're digging up dinosaur bones? not very, unless it revolved around archeology in a strong enough way. The educational system before college is designed to just prepare us for everything. They don't know what students want to do with their lives, and often the students themselves aren't sure. So it seems easiest to prepare them for everything, and let them choose what they want to do when they're old enough to pay for school themselves.

    Learning is an ongoing process. I think that formal education helps us to become a well rounded individual. It is the grounding needed to become a valuable member of society. However in most jobs, the training is much more specific to the work you will be doing for them. Often a degree isn't used, it is merely the foot in the door to get a job. Most of the adults I meet, who have degrees, are not working in the fields they studied..
    Interesting question.
