    Tony Blair has banged on about education for those and made a huge statement with these damning words ‘education, education, education’. It is rather easily said and maybe understood by some but doesn’t this change from person to person and from society to society?There are lots of issues involved defining the word education. Generally speaking, Oposiciones.pw is defined as planning to school, then university and thereafter obtaining a job. Obviously, passing of exams reflects how clever someone is. However, do exams reflect how intelligent one is or have we being a society attached a label with it? It must be noted that many people are ‘academically’ bright. By this, I mean they’re enthused by learning theory at schools and study hard for exams after which pass getting pretty high grades. On the other hand, it must be brought to attention that academically intelligent people may lack intelligence in other fields. Have you ever looked at that? For instance, an individual who gets high grades for exams might not have the social skills needed for the ‘real world’. So doesn’t this imply that their studies were pointless? Do we have to study really hard and get a’s and b’s to obtain the title ‘intelligent’? After all, if we look at historical figures, did they’re going to college? Did inventors start similar to this. These are the questions we have to make a list of.For me, as a student at postgraduate level, I’ve met many individuals from around the globe. Using this experience We have found that the way in which intelligence is measured within this contemporary society is one thing to be concerned about. From medical professionals to cleaning staff, We have met an array. Using this, I can conclude the way intelligence is measured in society is worrying. Individuals with degrees are working in areas with no relevance with their subject area the ones are continually being employed for reasons other than their academic qualifications. Therefore, are educational institutions preparing us for your big bad world? A solution we are able to receive looking at what is happening around us. I know believe that ‘intelligence’ is measured inside the wrong way. In the end, academic qualifications are purely according to gaining a title which sticks with wherever we go but our minds are continuously obtaining information, ideas, where ever you look..from people we meet and interact with. In addition, countries where there isn’t any formal institution to instruct does not mean that 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 face it, aren’t always the most brightest.
