This is a good topic today. I feel education is very important. Everyone needs a basic education that you can receive from High School. However, you now need higher education as well.
I live in the suburbs of Pittsburgh. We use to be a big steel mill town. It use to be that as soon as you graduated high school you could work in the mills and be set for life. They would teach you on the job. That is no longer the case. A lot of the mills in Pittsburgh are closed down.
Think of how many adults you know that have had to change careers because of downsizing of companies. There are more and more adults in college now than ever before. That’s because to make it in any profession you need a higher education.
You need more than just a diploma now. Depending on the job you are applying for you need an Associate’s Degree or Bachelor’s Degree.
I think some youth take their education for granted. I know I did in high school. I didn’t apply myself as much as I should of. Now as an adult I’m paying the price for that.
So please, make sure to teach the young people in your life not to take their education for granted. They will thank you later.
