Why School Education Is the Most Important Issue in American Life
Of course, the most important issue in American life is the economy. The economy affects everything in our lives. We are all aware of this fact. However, there are other issues that require attention when it comes to politics and economics. One of these issues is education. You might be wondering why I consider education to be so important in this day and age. Well, let me tell you exactly why…
We have a lot of highly educated people who have degrees from top-notch universities around the nation! And yet America still has an unemployment rate above eight percent because many companies cannot find qualified applicants for their open positions! How can this be? There are millions of jobs available, but no one wants them! It doesn’t make sense! If you’re not familiar with the problem then let me give you an example that I came across recently: A company was looking for a “Hair Stylist”. It required at least two years experience for this position because it was a management position… That’s right – they wanted someone with experience running their own business. We didn’t have any adult education at my school. I was told that I would have to wait until after high school to get the education that I wanted.
I will be honest, when I first read this job posting, I thought their requirements sounded like a lot of work. If you look at the amount of time required for each skill – it’s actually quite minimal. It only takes two years to master hair styling; however, if you read the description carefully (which most people don’t do), you’ll see that they are looking for someone with experience in running their own business! If you subtract all of those other jobs from your list and record your progress as a “hair stylist” on a resume… Well… You might not get called back for an interview, or even worse – they might assume that you lied on your resume!
What’s going on here? Why is America making it so difficult for people to find jobs? In my opinion, there are several reasons: First of all, Americans have been taught from day one not to question authority figures such as teachers and professors. We also have been brainwashed into believing that we can’t do anything without some big company swooping in and saving us from ourselves! And finally… We want something for nothing! Many people think they deserve a good paying job just because they exist! They want everything handed to them without any hard work involved…. And yes. I’m talking about YOU! If you want a good paying job, you have to work hard for it!
In order to get a good paying job, you need education. The more education you have the better your chances are of getting a high-paying job. In America today, we have too many people that want everything handed to them on a silver platter. They don’t care that they aren’t qualified for the jobs they’re applying for! That’s why companies can’t fill their open positions… They can’t find qualified applicants who actually want to do the work! America has become infested with “dumbasses” who think they deserve things because of their race or social status instead of working hard and earning what they believe is rightfully theirs. As long as this attitude continues then we will continue having an unemployment rate over eight percent. I’ve only given you one example as proof that school education is important in American life; however there are countless examples just like this one all across our great nation….
If I were President Obama, I would implement these actions: First – We need more adult schools and Universities in America where students could gain skills and knowledge necessary to compete in today’s economy… We can no longer rely on high school and college graduates alone… We need everyone working together so we can put our country back on track again.
I hope that my personal story has helped you better understand why school education is the most important issue in American life. I know it’s a touchy subject and I’m sure some people will disagree with me; however, if we all put aside our differences and worked together in harmony then we could put America back on track again… And this time for good!
