How does education really help me and our society? I thought about being less dependant on other countries, but that's the only one i can think off. This is a very hard question if you think about it, eventhough it might sound very easy. Any ideas?

Education is key to civilisation because it helps members of our society comprehend their surroundings. Education also stops scientists working from scratch and proving things previous scientists have already proved, in this way it allows science and technology to advance faster.

In essence education is used as a tool for the human race to pass on knowledge to their children, in order for them to improve their standards of life. Education is also needed to prevent discimination from ignorance, statistics have shown that direct correlation between lack of education and prejudices such as racism.

In the 21st century, we don't need education. People who "want" to be educated can do the job, along with computer and various other technologies, don't you think?

Well of course we don't need education, we're all born with knowledge of the alphabet and numbers...

Those who "want" to be doctors are welcome. I'm arguing that education should be a voluntary issue here.

Well we need people to further the technology don't we, and of course not all of it can be operated by the layman so we need people skilled enough to operate it.

Yeah it is, but who would want to NOT do AS/A2 unless they intended to get a permanent job at Burger King or something. If everyone is accepted with GCSE's, then that won't be much of a problem. Those who want to continue are free. It's like getting the Masters and PhD. You don't have to, but it's better if you do.

That's a problem of the system which allows too many graduates.

Does anyone ever feel like they are talking to a brick wall?
Of course people arent accepted for high class jobs with merely GCSEs. Would you really want someone operating on you who just scrraped a C in biology GCSE?
Thought not.

basic education provides skilled workers for hi-tech jobs such as software engineering, etc. since the uk has become deindustrialised and more service orientated. education provides awareness and structure within life allowing you to do things that you would take for granted like right now talking on ukl forums.
