Some people claim that many things that children are taught at school are a waste of time. Other people argue that everything study at school are useful at some time. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.
People take different attitudes towards the usefulness of school education. While some people regard it a waste of time to study at school, I would agree with the opponents who believe that everything imparted by academic institutions have their justification.
Admittedly, it is easy to understand why some young individuals are disappointed about the results ofschooling, particularly for those pragmatists who look forward to immediate rewards from anything they have done. There do exist some businesses where the oretical proficiency is eclipsed by empirical knowledge. Let’s imagine a hypothetical situation where two candidates compete for a position of car dealer or estate agent. Supposing that one applicant has just graduated from university while the other is a senior sales person without degree, the former would have less odds to win out.
However, I choose to standby those who believe that every course is worth learning, whereas it is just a matter of time for the knowledge to shine a light. Living in a rapid-changing era, few people can anticipate the future trend of the market, meaning that anything we learn, though it might not benefit us at the moment, will have its role to play in our future careers - what the world needs in the future will not beskilled worker anymore but more versatile talents who can switch between different roles using diversified knowledge. By contrast, those utilitarians who overlook the importance of study will be justified to be myopic and inevitably be left behind the new wave of business. One convincing example is the success of Woody Allen, the famous movie director. Were it not for those seemingly useless knowledgeof history, literature, music and art, which he has accumulated for the past oflife, he would have not been able to tell so many fantastic stories in hismovies.
In conclusion, academic education might seem time-wasting to those short-sighted people, I believe thatstudy will be one of the most rewarded thing we ought to do.
