Critical thinking:

This essay is very much impressive because education is considered supremely valuable. However, I do not agree with a few ideas of the writer. Is only formal education important?  Can’t we become educated through informal education? Do all the educated people respected as much as a rich businessman and powerful politicians? So I don’t agree with the writer.


This essay impressed me very much. Before reading this story, I don’t know the value of formal education and University degree. But this essay inspired me to study well to take a university degree. Now, I have decided to become a scholar to have comfortable through learning.
