Is getting a higher learning really important?

education - this is the only treasure that your parents can leave you.

Is going to college that important? I know a lot of people who graduated from college and yet they can't get a job. So jobs look for experience rather than knowledge. Is it better to start working early rather than wasting your time studying?

in my country a college graduated has better opportunities to get a job compare to those who has experience but only graduate from junior or senior highschool. but for those who prefer to start their own business, graduate from college is not necessary

Absolutely. I believe that the higher your education the more opportunity you will have. People would rather hire someone with a PHD rather than someone with an Associates degree or no degree. It is a constant competition in the job market and higher education seems to give you the advantage most of the time. I hope this answered your question. Best of luck to you
