As the cyclical and seemingly never ending debate about education rages on, the topic - somewhat ironically, often poses more questions than it provides answers.

But what is the value of mainstream schooling? Why is it that some of the most high profile and successful figures within the Western world openly admit to never having completed any form of higher learning?

Paying homage to Jefferson Bethke's "Why I Hate Religion but Love Jesus", a piece that received 22 million views in the space of a week, I address a number of these issues in my offering "Why I Hate School, but Love Education".

With scores of school leavers wanting to further their education with no guarantee of their dream job at the end of it, we should ask ourselves whether qualifications still hold the same value now as they did in previous years?

Does success in the school system correlate to success in life? Or is the school system simply geared towards fact retention and regurgitation?

What is true education?

You can't beat statistics with a bullshit story. Education correlates positively with income. I do agree that education isn't for everyone. Information is wasted on those who don't put it to use.

Yes, but the brain is like a muscle. You must train it and use it; the way you train it is by working hard and memorising stuff. You might not use all the information you learn, but it trains the brain.

Author Derek Thomas Lirio ( ago)
Modern day education is broken, because it is designed to breed masses of obedient workers. I began skipping school in the 10th grade. Not to hang out with friends, but to go meet with local executives who wished to hire me as an independent web developer.

First off, bravo on the John Williams music from the "Sunshine" movie soundtrack -- one of the best, and a brilliant choice for the content.

Second, we're all building someone else's dream all the time. Every time you buy a Pepsi or load of bread, new hoodie, soap, drive your car, etc. It's hard to escape. You meant it in terms of occupation, but it's a slippery slope.

And third, totally agree with scholastic standards. I dropped out my junior year of high school, and I'm grateful for the fundamentals they bestowed upon me in such an uninspired fashion. But they can only teach so much before you realize the hypocrisy and propaganda laden throughout the curriculum. I had much more prolific results from the education I sought out myself, guided by my personal passions in tandem with objective truth. Amen to this man's insight. Self education is soooo much fun and as interesting as you want it. And school can't teach creativity, which is both necessity's finest tool and the mother of modern invention.

Shout out to all my home university frat brothers and sorority sisters. Education is priceless...

One question I've always had in my head is, "Who are you without school, grades, and education alike"? All these kids who cry over getting an 89% on an exam, who spend their whole weekends studying for a test they don't give a damn about, who are they when all that is taken away? Who are you without all the external influences and predisposed ideas affecting your own thoughts? Do you really enjoy solving for the missing angle in a triangle, or learning about the chemical makeup of a cell, when you have no desire to become a biologist or chemist in the future? To all you adults out there, when's the last time you've used ANY of the subject material you learned in grade school? Sure maybe its good to know about how the physical world works, and how the different nations on our earth have come to be, but how does any of that help you build and grow as a person? Does it teach you how to see other people's perspectives, or to show compassion to the people around you, strangers included, or to think for yourself and form your own opinions and ideas? Are you really living your own life? Or are you following a guide and a path that someone else has formed for you? Whats most important at the end of the day is YOU, not what someone else thinks of you, not someone else's opinion on what best for you, etc. We all know our education system is outdated, and frankly, I don't feel comfortable following something that was developed so long ago, with nothing in mind but the control and the "greater good" of a nation, not the individual. Why do you think the arts, and other creative, mind provoking subjects are so poorly funded and supported? The powers that keep us in control have a certain agenda, and how we feel about it does not matter to them. We grow up, being taught and conditioned to think and act in a certain, limiting ways. We go to school, put countless hours and loads of energy into subjects most of us have no interest in, just to go to suped-up, less restrictive versions of the same thing in college. We present employers a nice fancy piece of paper showing that we graduated, even though all it takes is the ability to remember facts, dates, names and numbers, and to plan for following assessments accordingly, much like what a robot would do. Most of us give in to the corporate slavery that is working as an adult, where all we do is go to our mostly boring, repetitive jobs, make money, buy consumer goods, pay taxes, etc. Where is the LIFE in that? In this whole process, where is there room to think freely and follow our own desires and ambitions? School does not TEACH us to do any of this, it only delays our pre-programmed, voluntary submission into a system designed to keep us down, and follow orders given by people who's thoughts and ideas may not be any better than our own. Only the most intelligent (and often outspoken :/ ) of us can see through the facade and open up our eyes for once in our lives. I don't presume to know everything, as I am only 16, but what I do know is that true joy stems from doing what you want to do, because you want to do it, not because someone else told you to. Like I said I'm not trying to act like I know all there is to know about whats going on in this world, but I, at the very least, encourage you to think for yourself, and find ways to do what you enjoy. Money can be made in a myriad of ways, don't let that be the sole factor that decided what life you're going to live, what job you're going to have. Don't be afraid to look into and research what doesn't sit right with you. Its ok to let go of certain thoughts and beliefs that, although may have brought you comfort and "ignorant bliss", may not have been the best for you in the grand sense of things. Love you all :)

Well school is.... dependent on the situation, if you wanted to become a doctor you'll need school but if you wanted to become an author, animator or someone in the creative arts then you don't really need school, I mean sure get a bit of extra education but still if you don't need it don't use it, If more and more people did this society would realise the drop in students and eventually allow students to do what they want

There are only three types of people that will pass high school. Those with good memory. Those who play sports. And those who are rich. That's the damn truth. Cause I remember this dumbass rich classmate of mine manage to get inside one of the most prestigious university. And students who play sports all of a sudden get scholarship while the average students get put down. Iam not saying that school is bad. We all need school for education. But the school system favours the most popular.

To just follow something you like to do is scary because you might change your mind or realize that to make money with that particular love or talent may come in a from of a career or job you don't like. What i always think when i hear a message like this, is that the people being used as examples are or were driven to do a particular thing. For someone who does not known what he wants to do with his life, is school not the answer?
