is education really as powerful now as before?, or before's education is much powerful than now..coz i just noticed this thing about education here in our country philippines.. youths right now really had hard times speaking in english..and i must include myself too..sometimes i cant really talk straight english, specially when im talking to my step dad who is an american citizen.. and in math youth of this time im not pertaining to all just some, really had hard times to when given a simple arithmetic..what is the problem with this,.is this because education now is not that quality as before or the problem is just on the student/youth today?..coz i noticed that older people like my grandmother who did not even graduate in elementary level can speak straight english and can solve hard math problems in just a minute even in second.. give your opinion to this..is the problem really with the education today or just because of the youth who dont really like school?is education more powerful today or yesterday in times of our grandparents?..what do u think?

I think that the education is the most important thing in one person, if one person has got a very good education from the school and his parents he would get succesful on his life so its important to take a good education when we are a child, have a nice day on mylot and happy earnings also.

I think education is so powerful to me. It opens my eyes, lets me know more about the world. Education is also change my life.And I don't agree with you. That education can not equal to speak English good. English is just a tool.

education is really very powerful...when used at proper places it can do wonders...although there are some people who use education for wrong purposes...bu education in subjects like science and maths can do many wonders for the human applying it and for the whole socirty altogether.

In the US Knowledge is power, you cannot get a good paying job without an education. Used to be all one needed to be was a high school graduate now a college degree is needed.
