Education is defined as an ability to think, apply it in the world and to know the value of life. It is not limited to self-education, but also it is important to spread it to every human around. The experts in this area that it is no end for education, as in every stage of human life we learn something.
Education is about learning life, however, education itself is life, as it is the key to find great characters hidden in every individual.
Many people feel like a “failure” when they didn’t earn good grades because they receive a formal “education or they didn’t graduate with a college degree. However, for everyone is important to know that people who don’t do great in school or don’t go to college are just as valuable and brilliant as anyone who does earn a college degree.
Sometimes parents, teachers, and people from your surrounding might have told you some abusive words, because of your low grades or minimal expectations for your success. We assure you that they were wrong, because the academic achievement, impeccable grammar, or a Ph.D. represents intelligence, while fewer degrees, bad grades, or manual labor professions represent some kind of ‘lower’ intelligence or just a different way of seeing the life. Most of the people with a lower degree are very intelligent, but they simply like their professions and the higher degree is not necessary for them.
An average American public school typically recognizes three types of intelligence Academic achievement:
– Those who can study well,
– Those who can memorize information from reading or hearing it, and
– Those who conform to what various teachers like.
That means that there is no question that students who earn high marks do have terrific brains and an impressive work ethic.
