I have left school for a long long time but I am someone who loves to learn and receive more education but have no money to do it.Of course we can always learn some free knowledge though the internet in today's world but it is just so different from what we can learn from a school setting and atmosphere.If I have more money , I would love to go back to school for another degree and learn some more knowledge.What do you think?Share with us.

Well going back to school and learning i find it very awkward yes but honestly speaking i want to have my school days back not for learning and having education but for the fun i had in my school days. My school days were so awesome and it is nothing like that today. Though there was strictness and lot of rules and regulations unlike in college you have lot of freedom but having living in that atmosphere of school is very cool we had lot of friends, during that time there was nothing like tension, worries just have to concentrate on studies. So basically if given a chance to be in school i would like go and have back the fun i had with my friends.

Yes,I will,if I have enough money,I would like to quit my job and go to university again.I enjoy learning and that kind of life.But the reality is just so cruel.I have to work to earn my money to support my life and family.and I don't have much time after working.Everyday I got so tired.I don't want to do anytime but watch TV to have my brain rest well.

I graduated college but i am still yearning for a higher education, my husband too is suggesting that i also take my masters degree, like an MPA = masters in public administration or an MBA masters in business administration..but i am thinking about it because right now i do not know how i could squeeze it in with my schedule plus chores at home for my children..and also i might also go and take law. i am thinking about it deep and i might have definite plans for the next year for that. **crossing fingers***

I have left my school for 3 years and never want to back school. In China,in my hometown, we have huge study pressure when I was in high school, I had to went to school at 6:30am and back home at 10:10pm and there were 2 one hour breaks for lunch and supper. we studied 9 subjects which couldn't be used in society at all. We didn't have Saturday or Sunday any more from the second year of the high school and had only 2 weeks for summer holiday and 1 week for winter holiday. All these things make people like crazy when they come into college, because the got the "freedom". Most of them will be wandering for 4 years because the all don't know what they want to do in the future. there are big problems in Chinese educational system, we all know that but can do nothing about it.

I wouldn't wanna go back to school again. I don't wanna go back to deadlines, requirements, etc.. I have learned enough in there that I'm more than willing to learn from out here.

It would be wonderful really if I could go back to studies to increase my educational qualifications. Looking back, I really had no need to quite studies after graduation and go for a job but you know how temperamental youth is…at 21, I was straining to go for jobs and money and higher education was not on my focus. However, now I feel that if only I had studied for a few years more, my job opportunities would have been much higher. No use crying over spilt milk though…even if I do go for higher qualifications and get those degrees, its too late to have any impact on my career.

I would love to go back to school. Now that I think about it, I never really realized how much I had it made while I was still studying! Also, I would prefer the idea of really going back into school instead of just taking an online course. There is something about structured education that I really like and I think really conducive for learning instead of just doing it on your own.

Hi wild, I do love to go back to school to learn more. Two things really kept me from it. One, I don't have the time and the money to do it. Two, I hate to be in a classroom full of students and a teacher that looked like my two kids at home. I wonder what would they call me there? Oh, I'm not really interested to know!

I too would love to go back to school. I'd get my Masters either in Computer Science or Writing. I owe so much money, but I haven't gone over the limit for getting a loan for school. I can't get a decent job to pay my debts, so I might as well go back to school. If you can, go back to school and get another degree.

Hi there! Same too me too~ I would love to study more and more. But only for favorite subjects. Even if there are free education program here but still need to figure out other thing as well. So I think I should save my money first before I ever try to pursue my study to the next level.(^^)

I will love to go back to school for any kind of study because now I know how to learn and what is the importance of school in our life. This time I will be the best student of the school :D

If I won a lot of money, there is nothing that I would like better than to spend my life learning more and more topics and getting another education. I have paid for my education up until degree level now, and I would love to be able to take that higher and do my masters degree and then eventually a doctorate. Education is something that is so important and very amazing but, sadly, it is not open to everybody and those people who have more money do actually have a lot more options open to them in life.

I went to secondary school from age 11 to 16 years old. Then I went to a further education college from age 16 to 18 years old. I went to work as a children's nanny at that age and then traveled around Europe by train. I came home and got a job as a container marketing controller for a ship brokers. Sadly two years later I got made redundant and in the recession I couldn't find another job. I gave up looking and got a working holiday visa for Australia. I let my cottage out and bought an airline ticket around the world. I spent over a year on that trip came home got married and the next year had a baby. I studied for a GCSE Maths grade C or above and an A Level English Literature. I went to university and studied Education plus English Literature. Then I became a primary school teacher like I am now. I did an A Level in Travel and Tourism for my own enjoyment. I have got enough qualifications and wouldn't be able to go back to studying full time. I have a teenage son, a disabled 4 year old son and a 2 year old daughter.

Yes, I'd love to go back to education. If I won a large amount of money, I would give up my job & do that without having to have the responsibility of working to pay the bills.
