Education: Does Schooling Really Matter?
By: Monique Brockington From a person's early childhood days of elementary school, the most popular question that your teacher asked was, "What do you want to be when you grow up?". Of course we gave the most common answers such as a dotor, a lawyer, a teacher, a nurse, a fire fighter, a policeman/policewoman, president,or like mommy and daddy. We were also taught by our parents & teachers that if you stay in school, do well & go to college, you could be whatever it is you want to be. With hard work & persistance anything is possible. As children some of us were taught the importance of a good education, to think of schooling as your financial ladder towards your future. Who you are or turn out to be in life based on your social status will be achieved through your education & occupation.
