Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.  ~Albert Einstein

Gaining an education can be a  rewarding experience and just like you i’m happy to be  educated.

Education is a part of human development, without education life as we know it would be different and weird, wouldn’t you agree?   The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows.  ~Sydney J. Harris

Albert Einstein once said, “according to this conception, the sole function of education was to open the way to thinking and knowing, and the school, as the outstanding organ for the people’s education, must serve that end exclusively.” Einstein may or may not agree with Malcolm X. You decide!
In the essay “Homemade Education” Malcolm X talks about how education changed his self perception and the perception of others. Malcolm X is the perfect example of how the pen is mightier than the sword because he used his homemade education to achieve greatness and become one of the most memorable public speakers of our time.
All this he did by himself in a jail cell.
Getting an education and getting a degree are two similar yet different propositions. Getting an education is based on one’s interests and what makes him or her happy.
People who get an education do so because they want to live in freedom of the mind. Getting a degree is different because it’s about going through a process and finishing with an ending.
So while at school pursue to get an education….. and a degree does comes in handy too……… deal?
