Education - What is It?5698442
Tony Blair has banged on about education for many and made a massive statement using these damning words 'education, education, education'. It is extremely easily said and perhaps understood by a few but doesn't this differ from person to person and from society to society?
There are many issues involved defining the term education. Generally, Oposiciones is described as planning to school, then university or college and thereafter obtaining a job. Obviously, passing of exams reflects how clever an individual is. However, do exams reflect how intelligent a person is or have we being a society attached a label with it? It needs to be noted that many people are 'academically' bright. From this, I am talking about they are enthused by learning theory at schools and look at challenging for exams and then pass getting pretty high grades. Alternatively, it should be delivered to attention that academically intelligent people may lack intelligence in other fields. Perhaps you have thought of that? For instance, an individual who gets high grades for exams might not have the social skills needed for the 'real world'. So doesn't this suggest that the studies were pointless? Do we need to study really hard and obtain a's and b's to find the title 'intelligent'? After all, as we take a look at historical figures, did each goes to high school? Did inventors start similar to this. Fundamental essentials questions we need to ask ourselves.
For me personally, like a student at postgraduate level, We have met many people from around the world. From this experience I have found that the way intelligence is measured on this contemporary society is a thing to think about. From medical professionals to cleaning staff, I have met a variety. Out of this, I will conclude that the way intelligence is measured in society is worrying. People who have degrees will work in areas which has no relevance for their subject area and people are continually working for reasons apart from their academic qualifications. Therefore, are schools preparing us for your big bad world? A response we are able to receive looking at what exactly is happening around us. I know feel that 'intelligence' is measured within the wrong way. In the end, academic qualifications are purely based on gaining a title which sticks with wherever we go but our mind are continuously picking up information, ideas, you name it..from people we meet and have interaction with. In addition, countries and then there isn't any formal institution to teach does not mean that the individuals that society are uneducated but perhaps more educated as they have to gain skills with no type of guidance from 'so-called' professional bodies which, let's face it, aren't always one of the most brightest.
