IN life your parents your elders and teachers all tell you to get a education its very important that you stay in school because now and days you soon or later going to need a High School Diploma to work at Burger King. Now to me personally it depends what you want to be when you grow up if you want to be a doctor or an architect and etc then you do need a Education higher then a High School Diploma or a GED. IF you want to be a Nurse or a Doctors Aid, or a Construction worker they have classes for that in college and once your done that you can go straight to it it doesn't really require much. Some people think its pointless since the world is going to end in 2012 or sometime soon. Religious matters people think its not important since Jesus is going to come before some of us Young people even get done College Me Personally, I want to take up a class and get a good job. Finish College with a PH-D and Be Happy for the rest of my life thank God. I will give him the glory for that wow. Well yeah Overall To Me Education is a MUST in Life I Finish High School With a 3.93 GPA and I have a IQ of 128. I'm proud of myself and I know I can do what ever I want if I put my mind into it. And as long as God is Standing next to me I can For sure

I have a different perspective on education and success in life. I feel success is defined by the individuals definition of what success is. To be successful in life to me is to be happy, fulfilled, and at peace with what I have and where I am at; no matter how little or how much I have. Education plays a major role in the financial success for most individuals. Although I have seen a number of well educated people with Master's degrees and Phd's who were totally miserable with their "success". Success based on what you have, the pedigree after your name, or your professional stature can be temporary and removed without moments notice. When Success is based and achieved in the realm of one's self identity, values and contentment, then they are secured to keep and claim without the risk of ever losing them.

For me, Yes, school and education have huge factor in success in life because base on what I see in successful people they are educated people. Here in our country parents is doing their best to earn good income for the education of their children. There are also other successful person that even they don't finish their schooling they are still successful because they have very good talent.

Normally that could be a factor because most of the companies are looking for a degree holder. But there instances that passion on certain skill makes us excel and open an opportunity for us.

School is essential as certain good characteristics are imparted to us by our teachers.But i can't say they are everything you need in life.Education after school and life experiences teach us even more about how to succeed in life.School education does help but its not everything in life.

I think unless you have some great talent that is going to make you famous that you need an education to be successful. And even then some talents run out. You can't be a singer or actor forever most of the time. So it's always good to have an education to fall back on.

These days it matters a whole lot if you're looking for a job. Almost all companies now wants to hire a graduate even with those low positions. But i know a few people who were successful in the jobs and held a high position even if they were only high school graduate and a few were college undergraduate. I think if the company looks NOT on the diploma but on the skills and how good the person can work FOR the company, i think this kind of thinking would be better. There are other personnel; even if they are graduates cannot perform well their jobs. I wish its something like that...

For me, it really matter.School is very important in order for us to become successful, as it is where the basics of learning begins. Gaining knowledge and wisdom in school will help you when you are an adult. You'll find that doing your very best in school will reap benefits for you in the future.

Well, for me, it is a big factor but not everything for you to succeed. Your education is an advantage when applying to a company. They look up at your resume. And there are position that specialized skill is a must. Like in the Communication. But of course,if you are lazy and not using your education to pursue your dreams it won't work. Determination, strong will, trust in GOd, wisdom are enough.

Oh yes education is a big factor in one's success in life. As if you're a degree holder there are more job opportunities open for you. You have self confidence and feel you can meet the qualifications needed in a job you're applying for. Thou there are cases where undergrad or people who didn't get enough education succeed in life as well. Those who are in to businesses, where their parents able to give them capital to start their own. Those who are industrious that do farming and later got big plantation of crops or fruits that resulted to big exportation business. Though education is a big factor but it still depend upon the status of an individual.
