Being educated is about more than grades and a piece of paper saying you have satisfied a school’s academic requirements. Being educated is actually about learning and more importantly, being able to demonstrate what you have learned. Education is something you can gain both inside AND outside of the ‘box’ of the classroom.
Now, don’t get me wrong….school has its value. I don’t discredit our educational system completely. But, I believe that true higher learning comes from living, making choices, and learning from those choices as you go. Life and experience are the greatest teachers. Heed their lessons….because they will always test you. Don’t think you have it made just because you have a fancy piece of paper with some administrator’s signature of approval stamped on it. Because there are plenty of degreed dummies walking around here with their chests poked out but their brains tucked in. Don’t be one of them. Learn to think outside the ‘box’ and never stop learning. Let life school you.
