For a long time I've been skeptical of the idea that we need to go to school to learn things or that school is the best way to learn things.
Need I give examples? How many people would say they know nothing except what they learned in school? Many people learn multiple languages without school. Many people learn practical on the job skills without school. There is a story that Ayn Rand taught herself how to read at the age of 3 or something like that.
Brigitte Gabriel learned English in Lebanon from translations to English on TV shows. Not in school.
Some decades ago my brother Bob acquired a big fat textbook about welding from NAIT (Northern Alberta Institute of Technology). He read the book and then applied for a job as a welder with no experience and no formal learning about welding. The boss said, can you weld? .. Sure, no problem... Let's see you weld. ... I see you know what you are doing. .. He got the job and that is how he became a welder.
The stuff you learn in school is not necessarily of more value or better learned than what you can learn on your own by a combination of books and on the job.
The main advantage of school is you get a diploma or degree. But once you prove yourself on the job, you don't need that. There are exceptions in some professions because of government requirement.
Some people get the diploma or degree and it doesn't do them any good and they owe $100,000 plus interest and they wasted some of the best years of their life. And they might be better without their education, especially if it's about philosophy.
In the age of the internet it should be easier than ever before to learn without school. The potential is there; there may be some questions about how to best use it, like what's worth learning and the order of learning it.
