Essay 23

Epictetus, who lived from 55 AD-135AD, claimed, "Only the educated are free." Just under 2,000 years later Benjamin Franklin, one of the most influential founding fathers of America, said, "An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest" Unfortunately, many people are still dropping out of school and not pursuing a degree. Maybe these great thinkers were wrong?

Assignment: How do you feel about the idea that education is not necessarily as important as the two people mentioned in the passage above claim it to be?
