    I don't agree with that at all, my Dad retired recently and he has returned to college and is doing a full time degree programme. My Dad's not as old as the Californian lady in this story who recently got a degree in Art History - Woman Earns College Diploma at 94.

    According to me, Education is more important than work(job), because your whole
    future is fully depend on your education.If your education is good, then you get better and best job.So do sincerely study...Best of luck for your future..:)

    That's the truth that it's never too late to finish your studies and succeed in life.

    This is such a very intriguing topic. Nevertheless, it would all depend with the person, regardless if others would find job as a need prior to education or others would find education as a passion or a continuing process connected with one's life. The important thing here is both education OR work are tools to prepare and have a good future. After all, as human beings, we grow through learning. It's a matter of knowing what we want in the future (such as what kind of work=income) to determine the best strategy available at the very moment.

    People who like me do not like education i will drop it provide the thing you doing is able to allow you to have a steady income per month. If not it would be good to stick to education.

    What? You don't like to study? If you are not well educated, you can't find a stable and steady job.
    Did you know that each day, we are able to learn something new? Even though it's just one new thing, it can always make a difference.

    My opinion is that you have to do both but no matter what will be the first: you can start with education and then start working or you can start working and then study.

    I think the practical reality in which we live is more important than education, where education is not only information but experience rather than as information and cultures

    I also think he should change the style of education in our lives and link it to work because he is the one who prepares you more than education

    According to me education and learning is one of the most important processes in today's society. A job that makes enough money for you to support your family but if you do not educated so you cant do job.

    I think that work and education are complementary to each other without education does not benefit the work and work without education leads to a lot of mistakes

    I think, work is more important because we do hard work to get money, and if we have money with us then I do not think we need to work to get it.The practically work is important, if you show you are competent enough than education doesn't matter.

    I hate the rote method of education. I think our education system sucks big time. There is no practical exposure. It is just cramming up theoretical lessons.

    Learn while you earn! There is an immense scope to learn in a more conducive environment while at work. Enroll yourself in part time courses without compromising your work commitments.

    The things we learn and the experience gained in the meanwhile shouldn’t be underestimated. Things that a classroom won’t teach will be taught by your work place.

    For me Education in more important, because if you lost your job, since you are educated it is not so hard for you to find another job, but if you lost your and your not educated as well that would be the worst senario ever.

    In my opinion, education and work are both as important. I think that one cannot go without the other. I've met some people who are highly educated and might even be geniuses but are not working. On the other hand, there are also a majority of people who are working but has stopped learning and improving themselves.

    I personally think the education system where I live is horrible. You really only learn the basics. I think you learn the most when you are out experiencing it. You can't learn without really experiencing it. When you think about it, you do lose a lot of wwhat you spent hours a day every week learning.

    Work and Education both are equally important for every person in their life, as only education is of no use unless you use it for development of yoru self and your business and to work better and imrove your self its education is very important for everybody.
