LET'S DISCUSS

I was reading an interesting piece on the topic that says "Education breeds waste, gullibility and stupidity" today. While I do not agree with most things the author said, I tend to seem to agree with a vital point he made using the illustration or a secondary school dropout and a university graduate.




Education is a rigorous process going through several stages and spending so much just to acquire knowledge and maybe some basic skills or not. The dream of every graduate is to land a job with at least 4 zeros and so we search online looking for jobs that has what we believe we deserve and truth is many do not find these types of jobs as the few available are either left for those who have godfathers or given to the best of bests after a series of interviews using Nigeria as a case study.




The educated will rather spend years hoping and searching for what they call "white collar jobs." A lot are not ready to be innovative or even take a risk. They don't want to do jobs they consider as "dirty menial jobs" unlike the uneducated who doesn't consider any job as not befitting. They are willing to do anything so long it is legal even if the pay is little.




The uneducated seems to be more visionary that the graduates of today. They look into the future. While the graduate is spending 5 years searching for a job with perfect number of zeros, the uneducated is learning a skill and soon he will become a master of his own. By then the educated would have been tired of job hunting and would be employed by this same uneducated as a secretary or an accountant with that same little pay he rejected 5 years ago.




Could this mean that sometimes we are the architect of our unemployment?




Someone once said, "We lie when we say there are no jobs, the fact is there are jobs but they are just not the type of jobs we desire".




Let me hear our opinion on the above subject matter.

Gone are the days when education would solve so many financial problems, but these days being able to capitalize on any opportunity is what makes a difference.

The reality is that, we expect to get jobs with the theoretical knowledge we had in school, but that doesn't get you job or wealth. What gets you that is being able to think out of the box through practicalizing all those theoretical knowledge you have acquired in school.

Besides, don't depend on what you are being taught only in school, it doesn't pay well. 

That's why we see so many uneducated people achieving success more than the educated People.

Education is paramount 

Saying education breeds nonsense is wrong to me 

It all depends on the individuals who did pass through schools and school never padd through them

The problems facing the graduates start from our institutions. We thank God that most institutions in Nigeria has taken enterpreneurship as a core course.

This has to come to play because of the inability to get a well paid job and lack of skills to stand on there own.

Now we need to shift focus and we miss not allow our children to face this same problem.

Let's give them the right tools they can use in facing the challenges of this our world now.

Regardless I still feel education is a Very important.. it prepares us for opportunities ahead.

Someone that is educated and passionate about what he or she wants can always get things going even when there are no jobs out there.. it is just all about commitment
