I see a recurring theme here that school means knowledge. That is incorrect.

Education + common sense = knowledge



school doesn't guarantee knowledge but it promotes learning ... it merely opens the door but its up to the student to walk in and look for knowledge himself ... so if you use it correctly then school does mean knowledge
but if you expect school to do all your work for you and give it to you ready and summarised as if it was fast food then you're wasting both your time and theirs

Alternatively, you've wandered into Eton College, and you're correct.


Muahahahaha, take that Britain's hilariously unequal educational system.

Is this because you busted your ass off for four years and still don't have a job? MAYBE IT'S YOUR PERSONALITY.


That's no way to talk to somebody who has a liberal arts degree!

IMO, higher education is generally worth it and like most other things, you get out of it what you put in.

There's also a lot of people who shouldn't be going to college who just go because they've been told it's what their supposed to do after high school.

It is a 'waist' for you if you do not know how to make benefit from what you have learned so far. A wise people will know how to make profit for themselves from their own knowledge anyway.

Do whatever you want, but you have to be sure not to regretting your decision in the future.

Sadly, I'm one of these people. But, I try to make the most of what I have now.

Ahhhh... A good old troll thread... It's a nice classic one where the OP evokes irony in his post to get users to point it out and think how he's dumb and all... Not bad sir, but you need some practice in your spelling. You spelled waste wrong on purpose and created a title that would make users believe that you never finished high school... But you started writing better in the post... Which makes your mistakes even more obvious... Obvious troll is obvious... Nice try, but you can't beat a guy like me

Its a waste if you do something with no job at the end. In the UK to many students are going onto further education simply to get pissed for 3-4years and are doing courses with virtually no jobs at the end.

I did part time while working in the industry so now am fully qualified as well as having earnt fairly well for last 5 years. instead of 1 year.
