Many people still believe great education to be the key to success. If you want my humble opinion, I truly believe it is not the case with people living in the modern world. We live in the age of high technologies, computer geeks, hackers, talented autist children. We are exploring new areas, altering our life approaches, expanding our horizons and clearing our minds from useless information that does not serve as survival or progress tools. I believe new generation is focused on self-exploration and self-expression rather than on accumulating knowledge these days. Thanks to technological progress, we no longer need to spend time transforming our heads into libraries.
Education system, though, leaves much to be desired in terms of efficiency and compliance with modern day life realities.
