    Tony Blair has banged on about education for all making an enormous statement using these damning words ‘education, education, education’. It is extremely easily said and possibly understood by some but doesn’t this change from person to person and from society to society?There are numerous issues involved defining the word education. In general, Oposiciones.pw is described as going to school, then university and thereafter obtaining a job. Obviously, passing of exams reflects how clever an individual is. However, do exams reflect how intelligent an individual is or have we as a society attached a label to it? It needs to be noted that some individuals are ‘academically’ bright. From this, After all they’re enthused by learning theory at schools and look at a hardship on exams then pass getting pretty high grades. On the other hand, it needs to be taken to attention that academically intelligent people may lack intelligence in other fields. Maybe you have looked at that? For instance, a person who gets high grades for exams might possibly not have the social skills needed for the ‘real world’. So doesn’t this suggest that the studies were a waste of time? Do we need to study very difficult and get high gpa’s to obtain the title ‘intelligent’? After all, when we take a look at historical figures, did they go to high school? Did inventors start like this. These are the basic questions we must ask ourselves.For me, being a student at postgraduate level, I’ve met many people from around the globe. From this experience I’ve found that the way in which intelligence is measured within this modern society is something to think about. From physicians to cleaning staff, I’ve met a range. Using this, I’m able to conclude the way intelligence is measured in society is worrying. People with degrees will work in areas without any relevance with their area of interest and people are constantly working for reasons apart from their academic qualifications. Therefore, are educational institutions preparing us for your big bad world? An answer we can receive looking at what exactly is happening around us. I personally believe that ‘intelligence’ is measured within the wrong way. After all, academic qualifications are purely depending on gaining a title which sticks with wherever we go but our minds are continuously collecting information, ideas, take your pick..from people we meet and engage with. In addition, countries and then there is no formal institution to teach does not mean the people in that society are uneducated but perhaps more educated because they must gain skills without the type of guidance from ‘so-called’ professional bodies which, let’s be honest, aren’t always one of the most brightest.
