    Tony Blair has banged on about education for all making an enormous statement with these damning words ‘education, education, education’. It is rather easily said and maybe understood by some but doesn’t this vary from individual to individual and from society to society?

    There are many issues involved defining the word education. Generally,

    Oposiciones is understood to be likely to school, then university or college and thereafter getting a job. Obviously, passing of exams reflects how clever someone is. However, do exams reflect how intelligent an individual is or have we as a society attached a label to it? It should be noted that many people are ‘academically’ bright. With this, I am talking about they may be enthused by learning theory at schools and look at hard for exams then pass getting pretty high grades. On the other hand, it needs to be brought to attention that academically intelligent people may lack intelligence in other fields. Maybe you have thought of that? For example, an individual who gets high grades for exams may not have the social skills necessary for the ‘real world’. So doesn’t this mean their studies were a waste of time? Will we must study really hard and acquire a’s and b’s to get the title ‘intelligent’? In the end, when we look at historical figures, did each goes to school? Did inventors start like this. These are the basic questions we have to ask ourselves.

    Personally, being a student at postgraduate level, I have met many individuals from around the world. Using this experience I have discovered that the way in which intelligence is measured in this contemporary society is something to be concerned about. From medical professionals to cleaning staff, I have met a range. Out of this, I’m able to conclude that the way intelligence is measured in society is worrying. Individuals with degrees work in areas with no relevance to their subject area the ones are continually working for reasons besides their academic qualifications. Therefore, are educational institutions preparing us for your big bad world? A response we are able to get from considering what exactly is happening around us. Personally, i feel that ‘intelligence’ is measured inside the wrong way. In the end, academic qualifications are purely depending on gaining a title which sticks with wherever we go but our minds are continuously obtaining information, ideas, where ever you look..from people we meet and engage with. In addition, countries high is not any formal institution to instruct does not mean that the folks that society are uneducated but perhaps more educated as they must gain skills without any type of guidance from ‘so-called’ professional bodies which, after all, aren’t always one of the most brightest.
