The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education”- Einstein. What does he mean by that? And do you agree with his statement? Support your point of view with reasons and examples from your own experience.
Einstein once said, “The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.” What I believe he meant by saying that is that the education system does not prepare students enough for the real world. This may be because schools nowadays heavily emphasize on learning literacy and numeracy only instead of equipping students with general knowledge. In my opinion, I agree with Einstein’s statement to a certain extent that the education system does limit students’ learning in certain aspects such as basic living skills and preparation for the working life.
When students attend school, they basically go through daily classes which educate them on numeracy and literacy. Although learning these skills are important, schools should also put some emphasis on basic living skills. This means that students should be taught how to think outside the box and also to survive on their own in certain situations. These basic living skills are important as they equip students with general knowledge on how to survive on their own.
Furthermore, schools also provide very little preparation for the working life. Although students will complete their course with basic skills, they are not equipped with the right skills such as communication and interpersonal skills which will aid them in scoring their first job.
However, although the education does limit students’ learning in certain aspects, the fundamentals that schools cover are also essential. Therefore, I agree with Einstein’s statement only to a certain extent.
