    Seriously, some kids would be much better staying in the
    farm and learning how to grow potatoes than going to
    schools..

    There are uneducated potato rednecks who are more
    successful than me..

    Excuse me, but I am a bit sore against formal education
    systems for many reasons and everytime I hear people should
    be enforced to go through it I feel like strangling him.

    No need to "Excuse.."

    You make valid points. I practically walked away from my Eng
    career all because of some political inside-stuff going on.

    So.. all that education and expense = *poof* gone because I
    refused to play their games. I had several other
    opportunities elsewhere, but by then I was fed up and worn
    out.

    Growing potatoes may have been more satisfying - and
    consistent.

    However, the education system *does* provide some structure, a
    plan, builds social skills that helps most people.
