Reflective Essay on Education

What do I think about Education

Education is the pursuit of knowledge, not a goal that can be reached after obtaining a college degree.

Without a college degree you may be just settling for a certain job, which can lead to unhappiness. Going to a job everyday that you really don’t want to do doesn’t help your self-esteem.
