People often debate the value of formal education. Some believe leaving school and going to work before graduation has advantages. Others believe success will come from staying in school. How important do you think a high school education is in today’s society?
In my opinion, the purpose of high school education is to develop skills that will allow you to find a good job or create wealth through your occupation. In that way, it is a kind of long-term investment that costs money and time.Like any investment, it has risks, you can end up with no job or being unable to make money using the knowledge you learnt at school and being forced to work in a completely different industry where you may be paid peanuts. There is a certain number of factors that can influence success after being graduated. One of them is being able to adapt to the demand of the industry you're intend to work in and to apply efficiently the theorical knowledge you learnt at school, and unfortunately that matter is not taught at school, it really depends on your character and adaptability. Another one is how passionate you are by your major, if you really love what you do, there is great chance that you'll be successful. but in reality, many young people don't quite know what they want to do after school. I think for indecisive people, staying in school may not be the best option. They should go to work sooner, figure out what sort of occupation they'd like to do and then have the adequate training. In another hand, completing a high school education may open you many work opportunities even in industries not related to the major you studied or can give you the possibility to continue your study during your career.
