sometimes it's helpful to have a guide. develop your own opinions yes, but also learn how to articulate them and express them to other people.
One VERRRRY important skill.
And as you come up to leave school and look towards any further stuff, like University, the staff there have already experienced a good amount of life and can help you make decisions based on their experience. School isn't your total education, but it shows you what's out there and will help you get where you want to be.
also learning to navigate the bullshit you encounter in school is a life lesson all on it's own! prepares you for a lifetime of dealing with small minded people :D and learning how to avoid them, haha
Yes, always keep learning, only you are responsible for your education.

Sometimes I like to think of school as helping you build bridges of connection and communication.

Sure reading Moby Dick is probably not going to put food on your table.

However, if you know someone else has read Moby Dick, especially since you know they had the same teacher or curriculum, then you have a starting point of communication whether you hated the book or not. Finding that first thing in common is the first step in communication.

I think of the news and newspaper this way too. Most of it is pointless, but it gives old men something to talk about over coffee in the morning and develop relationships that will in turn become useful.

Finally, its kind of like this site too. We talk about a vast array of topics but the one thing that first started that path to communication is that we have or have an interest in the mohawk hairstyle and the personality that goes along with that. It implies a connection and even extra trust in knowing that a person may have a better idea about another topic because you can identify with them about something else.

Empathy + Knowledge = Trust.

Finding that common ground, even if its BS to your eventual career knowledge needs starts building you common bridges of communication that moves you toward empathy with your knowledge on your way to trust. Trust is important, because that's who people tend to buy from and who people tend do business with, people and brands they trust.

Side Note:
It will be interesting to see how school systems evolve in the coming years. The model "sage on stage" is getting more and more outdated. They say the one place a time traveler from 100 years ago would feel the safest is within a university lecture hall. That's good food for thought.
I loved the BS that had nothing to do with my career. Like I got to take a weaving class, a ceramics class, a sci-fi english class, etc etc. I wish I had the time and money to explore more, like a flash class or another illustration class.

Not only can education open paths of communication with other people, it can help you learn about yourself.
Cliche but true :P
you guys dont listen at all
yeah, but if we listened to you we'd be accepting your opinion instead of making our own :P
no its u guys r more focus on the title then the details why the fuck would i want you all to have my opinions love?
you illustrate my point, by seeming incapable of communicating an intelligent thought. educate yourself, yes. but use all the tools you have available to you, school being a very powerful tool to educate yourself. and maybe learn some grammar and spelling along the way :D

is it more petty to not learn from other people because you disagree with them, or to not even try to learn at all?
i think dawn has a point, G.M.M highlights a decent argument naturally and the "building bridges" and social structure argument is a sound one but i think your missing her point. School is important as a "base" which is mentioned in her opener to her discussion, people should take the time to read more than just the title. you need the basics to develop yourself as a person but i think dawns point is that there is a level where you are no longer developing but in fact being molded in to what society wants you to be. sure further education is a headstart on future careers but does that alone create intelligence? i know people who have followed to system by wrote school college university and come out no more of their own person, still just as dependant on others and about as developed in the "real world" as they were at 15 however they could teach me until my ears bled about micro biology!
i respect more the person who does well in life by their own initiative, if you are independant and talented and really your own person you dont need to follow the guidelines and paths laid out for you by further education and the state, do well on your own standards, develop outside the system and BECOME YOUR OWN PERSON, dont just fit the mould that the continued education system pours you into. i appreciate people find things they enjoy in the school system as jenni has said but who is to say there isnt endless pastimes outside state control that you will enjoy just as much or even more so? just because it is supported by educational authorities and ultimately the state doesnt make it any more worthy of enjoying.
i think independance is one of the most important things to learn and to truly gain that you need to step outside the mainstream and really develop your own opinions and experience life.
sorry for rant just this is something i feel quite strongly about.
