Post-Secondary: Printable Application

Here's a paraphrased story from an individual with the online handle "hereticjones" that illustrates the point of education.

A frustrated student in class exclaimed loudly, "Why do I need to learn this?!  I'll never use this, so it's completely irrelevant to the rest of my life!"

The professor patiently waited for the outburst to end, then calmly said something that shocked the entire class: "You're right." 

 

Fascinated by the response, the student and the class were speechless and stared at the professor in disbelief.

 

The professor then took a deep breath, faced the class, and continued, "You don't need to learn history, chemistry or calculus. All things considered you're never going to use specific facts and figures. You might, depending on where you go career-wise, but that's irrelevent.

 

"You see, you're not planning for the rest of your life right now. What we're trying to do here is not teach you knowledge you might need someday. What we are trying to do is sharpen your mind.


"You don't learn these things for the sake of the facts, the facts will exist with or without you. You are irrelevant to the facts. History and mathematics and science all exist independent of your knowledge or ignorance. Much like you don't sharpen a blade for the sake of the stone, you don't study for the sake of the information; you sharpen the blade so it is an effective tool. Likewise, you sharpen your mind so it can cut through any problem you may encounter in life.

 

"If you approach education from the point of view that what you're really learning isn't what to think, but how to think, you will be preparing yourself for anything life throws your way."
