    Tony Blair has banged on about education for all and made a huge statement with one of these damning words ‘education, education, education’. It is extremely easily said and perhaps 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 phrase education. Generally, Oposiciones is described as likely to school, then university and thereafter finding a job. Obviously, passing of exams reflects how clever a person is. However, do exams reflect how intelligent one is and have we being a society attached a label into it? It must be noted that some people are ‘academically’ bright. By this, I am talking about they are enthused by learning theory at schools and study challenging for exams and then pass getting pretty high grades. However, it needs to be brought to attention that academically intelligent people may lack intelligence in other fields. Perhaps you have considered that? For instance, an individual who gets high grades for exams might possibly not have the social skills needed for the ‘real world’. So doesn’t this mean their studies were a waste of time? Do we have to study really hard and obtain a’s and b’s to get the title ‘intelligent’? After all, if we take a look at historical figures, did they’re going to high school? Did inventors start like this. Fundamental essentials questions we must ask ourselves.For me, like a student at postgraduate level, We have met many individuals from around the globe. Using this experience I’ve found that the way in which intelligence is measured in this contemporary society is one thing to think about. From medical professionals to cleaning staff, We have met an array. From this, I’m able to conclude the way intelligence is measured in society is worrying. People with degrees work in areas with no relevance to their area of interest the ones are constantly being employed for reasons apart from their academic qualifications. Therefore, are schools preparing us for that big bad world? A solution we could get from looking at what exactly is happening around us. Personally, i feel that ‘intelligence’ is measured within the wrong way. In the end, academic qualifications are purely based on gaining a title which sticks with wherever we go but the brain are continuously collecting information, ideas, where ever you look..from people we meet and engage with. In addition, countries high is not any formal institution to show doesn’t mean that the individuals that society are uneducated but perhaps more educated since they must gain skills with no form of guidance from ‘so-called’ professional bodies which, let’s face it, aren’t always one of the most brightest.
