everything needs a right cause to justify itself.
we go schooling , for we hope that something will benefit us in future.
but the reality is very cruel beyond some students can imagine. they aim high but gain less. and few of them get a very ideal job. and most of them are now suffering from the great competition in job market.
so, here is my question- if purpose of schooling is to benefit us, then why we suffer from it?
as we all know the education is the foundation of a nation, no good education, no promising future.

if the educational system is like an ivory tower, then what's the initial purpose of building it?

thirst for your excellent and original opinions~~~

thanks~~

Teach one how to think and think creatively so that life is made easier!!!

Sure good things are hard to come by so some people squeezed thier brains.
Even Bill Gates,Microsoft need to squeeze his brians to give us easy to use softwares. One need to relax also after the squeezing....

Sometimes, we need genius to help all of us.;lol
What's on your mind now........ooooooooooooooo la la....Kind Regards

if your answer is right , then the purpose of education might have been to creat a great genius to "help us", maybe he is like the point of the tower which defines the purpose of activities of all mankind.
but if he'd conquered the most high place of the tower, mabybe he could be a great liar, and pretend himself as the Messiah, thereupon everyone on this planet worship him as the real king of the earth.

but is he the real savior for us?
and why we need his help instead of our own understanding?
maybe the material of this ivory tower is the stupidity of us, a pile of lazy cats!~~~lol~~

thanks for your sparkling idea~

The main purpose of education for us to use logic and reason with our actions. If we cannot reason with ourselves then we may as well behave like the animals among us.

Education of course also equips us with the specific skills which we can master to display our societal worth and personal worth.

Education can ultimately change anyones life from their past.

Education measures all individuals in the societal pyramid.

Education is not always fair but there are no harm out of education.

Education can only giveth but not taketh away. (in most cases...don't get 'smart' with me haha)

Education is not free and should be until university.

Education is the tool for surivival.

Education is the greatest gift aside from a parents love.
