Education is a way to suceed in life. I believe that u got to have some kind education to be able to understand and have giudence in life. Education can be thought just about from anyone and everywhere. To me, education shouldnt cost money. For example, education can be thought from music. The singer Tupac.
Tupac didnt really have an education, but he thought education thru his music and poems. Like Tupac says"its not an image;its just a way of life;its a mentality". Yes we do have education in our minds and i believe thats where education begins. If u have education u will be a great sucess in life and u will be admire. Tupac once said"hearse wheels rolled away the remainsof a young man who our childrenwatched,admired and perhaps emulated to some degree"
Education is the key to success. I feel that knowlegde is power,To be successful in this system. Tupac said that education is life experiences that instead of teaching students English they should be teaching politics. inviting the rich to see the life through the eyes of the poor. With education we can provide or self with better jobs. To be a role model, for the poor to become a aware and successful. knowledge is the way of understanding this system and the pain it brings. Guideness upon the people who can't see there's a way out. Lets focus on how we can be better instead of being bitter.
Knowledge is the first thing you need to open up the door of success. Education is every important to everyone. Personally, I dun think you get to a step of success if you only get education. There is only half success to me. Our life is always needed to keep updating new stuffs and getting new knowledge everyday. You would never finished learning if you really want to learn things in your life. In the book, Tupac had a great attitude in learning stuffs. He was not only wanted to learn those basic stuffs at school. He would also want to learn some other stuff such as, “religious, cults, sex education, drugs and police brutality”. (P.77) He want himself to be prepare for the real world. As I can tell he was already a maternal guy at that time.
Education in Tupac's life was not the norm. I felt Tupac was bored with the whole, "teaching from the book, one instructor and so many students." I felt like me, Tupac was very smart, but school could not' and/or did not keep his attention. Finding it more educational, from the everyday people, people he say everyday, doing their everyday, day-to-day routine. From the working people, to the students. Drunks, to "crack heads," also people who sold drugs. In addition, I am sure many more. Me, I never done or had any interests in drinking or doing drugs and that’s all because I’ve seen people, that I love, who I was close to, done it and lose totally control of themselves.
Tupac stated, "I think that we got so caught up in school being a tradition...”(Holler if You Hear Me, page 76, last paragraph, third sentences) I have to agree!
