Do you receive education just for the sake of itself or for finding job? More and more people choose to receive high education now. From college to university, from a bachelor to a master or a doctor. But why are we receive educations? Just for advance our ability and knowledge or just for finding job?

Mainly to increase career prospect, but the process of learning is so enjoyable. Get to participate in class discussions, get to know how and why people think the way they do. We are all adult learners (part time degree program, lessons at night or weekend), with few years of working experience. Sometimes the points brought out by classmates over-ride whatever theories. I mean, experience is real, theory might not be.

for advance our ability and knowledge. i can't go to school now. that will spend me a lot of time and a lot of money to receive a high education. if you don't have certificate you will don't find a good job. so i must advance my ability and knowlege. not just for find a good job. if you have a lot of ability and knowlege , you will do a lot of things for others.
