Education ends at college


knowledge ends with life...

...mohandas karmchand gandhi

Well this is one of most favorite quotes...as it reflects my strong views on the educational system in our society...with according to me is defunct...pathetic....and useless...

My reasons is that i don't believe in education...i believe in knowledge...these 2 things may appear quite similar...but there is a hell lot of difference

education n. 1 systematic instruction. 2 particular kind of or stage in education (a classical education; further education). 3 development of character or mental powers.  educational adj. educationally adv.

knowledge n. 1 a (usu. foll. by of) awareness or familiarity (of or with a person or thing) (have no knowledge of that). b person's range of information. 2 a (usu. foll. by of) understanding of a subject etc. (good knowledge of Greek). b sum of what is known (every branch of knowledge).  to my knowledge as far as I know.

Well...i believe that its the knowledge that can take the world to the path of progress...not education...But what people are doing is just laying stress on education...and not on knowledge...

Students just cramm up their lessons...give exams...get good results,,,and everyone is happy

...but whats the benefit...of such kinda of learning...its ultimately not going to help the society...

Knowledge on the other hand....dispels darkness....ignorance...and shows u a vision of a better society...Am often amazed...to see the knowledge of illiterate...uneducated men...

Knowledge of their work is all thats carrying them forward....

Ya education is important...but knowledge is indispensable...

so friends be aware,,,of your surroundings/....of yourself...education itself can just start your career

the growth would ultimately depend on your knowledge,,,

Those were my views on the topic...Education Vs. knowledge

waiting to hear your comments...

i agree with a lot that u say in this article ......its just that i feel wisdom is even more important than knowledge.......here is why...

'Knowledge and wisdom, far from being one,
Have at times no connection. Knowledge dwells
In heads replete with thoughts of other men,
Wisdom in minds attentive to their own.
Knowledge, a rude, unprofitable mass,
The mere material with which wisdom builds,
Till smoothed and squared, and fitted to its place,
Does but encumber what it seems to enrich.
Knowledge is proud that he has learned so much,
Wisdom is humble that he knows no more.

yes ... i think the present education structure stresses more on marks than on pratical or valuable learning ...and th fact is even if u get really good grades throughout ..its not necessary that it makes a good career... but if u have a knowledege bout stuff it will get u further in ur career even if uve not been a shcolar...what matters is how much we put it to use.

Abolutely..
the report by MCenzee itself speaks out man..
it says that though India produces many a graduates each year,but very few are worth employable..
and its the education system which is inherently to be blamed for it..
now we having raised the issue,why not see an alternative mode of system to tide over the crisis..!!
