I’m not going to sit here and bash school (even though it’s shit), but there seems to be a misconception between school and education. We were always told “You need to go to school to get an education,” but all of that is far from the truth. I mean sure, we learned how to count, read, spell and other basic things, but from a certain point, it all became slightly pointless you know…
Please tell me one time I’ve used the Pythagoras theorem or finding the perimeter of an isosceles triangle in life. I can understand learning it if you’re going down a route that requires it, but in the grand scheme of things, it’s pointless.
University fully highlights the difference between school and education and how much of a scam it is. Unless you’re going into the medical field or law, there’s honestly no need to waste your money on it. Everyone that has gone to university knows that you learn jack shit in your lectures (you probably won’t even remember anything that’s said), until you go home and study it for yourself, which ultimately shows EDUCATION IS FREE!
We’re paying 9k a year for slides, FOR SLIDES! Just to get a piece of paper at the end that doesn’t even guarantee you a job. Everything is on the internet now, and you can teach yourself whatever you want how you want, tailoring your education personally. I didn’t know a single thing about marketing before I searched it up, and now I know each of the disciplines, the different types, SEO, CRM etc. Just from me educating myself.
I sadly might have to go back to University, but the honest truth is I don’t have to. If I knew better I would have done an apprenticeship as I would be where I’m trying to be now (although I didn’t know what I wanted to do then). Don’t get me wrong, school is good for the basics and a few other things, but the whole “education system” is fucking terrible.
But what can I do about it 🤷🏽♂️?
