it is important?
Day 20 of the 30 day challenge is to talk about how important I think education is. To put it bluntly, I think it is VERY important! I grew up in a household where education was emphasized and made a priority. A’s and B’s were the only acceptable grades. C’s were not. In fact I don’t think I ever got a C until college statistics. My parents made us do our homework and were actively involved in our school. College wasn’t talked about as something we might do but something we would do. No questions asked. And today I am damn proud of my college diploma. (Sorry, Tara…GO AGGIES!)
I think that in America we don’t value education as much as other countries do. I think it is sad and it will eventually lead to our downfall as a nation. I don’t mean to sound doom and gloom but I just think we don’t put enough importance on educating our youth. We don’t pay our teachers enough and it seems that when we get into govenment budget trouble the first thing we cut is education spending. I am more in favor of cutting certain entitlement programs than education. But that is just me.
Here is a picture of me in high school with my friend, Allena. We were also college roommates (Texas A&M Grads) and she was the maid of honor in my wedding. GO PANTHERS! (We went to Pflugerville High School)
How important do you think education is?
Do you think having a college degree is important?
