How important you think education is?
In this economy the only things that gives you any edge in the job market is having a degree of some sort, and even then there is no guarantee that you can get a job.
I think it is important for people to continue their education immediately after high school. The longer you wait the harder it will be to go back to school. I know this from experience. Even if you don’t get a degree that you can use, I think that just the act of going to college will give you experience that you need in the real world.
For those who haven’t finished High School I think it important to their future and to their personality. Even if it takes you longer than others, having a High School Diploma is extremely important. I think that you really do need the skills you learn in High School to function properly in the real world. High School prepares you mentally and emotionally to deal with jobs, bills, and adult life. In my experience, most, not all, people who have not graduate high school tend to have a harder time relating to people. High school prepares you to be a grownup, if you don’t finish it, it is just that much harder to adapt to adult life.
Super short answer: Education is super important.
