    Thanks for that great reminder that , aside from having acquired education, be it in class or elsewhere , getting rich requires '
    the ability to continue learning, growing, and providing value for their employer.' and society. This is useful at all times but especially if you live and work in an age of rapid technology change over. It is the reason that some highly successful people suddenly find themselves impoverished. They are unable to make the change over.

    I wouldn't be quick to say no neither will I be quick in saying yes. Education gives you the added advantage in securing a job especially if you're seeking a professional job. Since you'll be versed with knowledge and skills required in the job market. However this wouldn't necessarily mean you're Successful. There are self made billionaires out there who didn't necessarily finish their higher level education but they're successful. This is because most of them established themselves in other areas of their lives eg talents.

    In conclusion therefore, I would say, though education is a crucial thing in the life of any human being, it's not necessarily the key to success.

    No,I don't think Education is that necessary for someone success.It is obvious that we have many people who are very educated,but are very useless in the society at large.I personally believe that , passion is the key. You have passion in something,then determination follows and that is it.passion and determination are the key factors for someone's success.

    I'm sorry to say but being educated doesn't mean being rich. It's kind of vice versa because the rich people are rarely the ones with university degree. I think that wanting to become rich is a setback to becoming rich. If you're trying to study hard just in order to become rich, you'll lose passion and drive for the things you might like which can bring you the money. Money can't be a goal to life there's a lot more to it

    Being educated in the general sense doesn't have anything to do with being rich BUT being financially educated has everything to do with it. That is the dividing line.

    I believe that we can all agree that a majority of individuals aspire to be rich, and the most typical reply is to study hard and achieve too grades. But it is hard to do so, when you are bombarded by instances in the media where high school dropouts have created their own businesses and are earning millions. The pressure to succeed has driven many to consider the education system as a means to provide for oneself in the future, as you have. Perdonally, I find that it depends on how you want to earn your living. For the routes in particular fields such as stock exchange, a considerable amount of research should be taken and an understanding of the process is necessary to hopefully earn a living. As long as you have a clear goal, and the steps to do so outlined, you should be able to reach your goal without perusing further education, if it is not mandatory.

    No. Of course education helps you to become wise, and wise people usually come to wealth naturally, but in the capitalist world we live, I believe that the wit to undertake at the right time, have a good strategy and work hard, furthermore, are a kind of key to wealth. Know what to do and at the right time and direct your efforts well, whether or not well educated. Also, I have a personal idea that money doesn't make you rich, but wisdom does indeed bring a very great inner comfort that provides lasting happiness, greater than money can provide.

    I think education is meant for wisdom. Even if you cannot succed to pass your exams ,there is still hope that you can become rich only when apply some small logic.

    I really don’t think that education is a must to become reach. What you need is skill. Once you discover you are good at something and a apply common knowledge to it, you are good to go.

    I believe the main purpose of education is not to get you rich but to teach you to become a better person and to equip you with skills and knowledge to have better opportunities in life. I believe education is not necessary to become rich, but essential to become a person with respect and self worth. Take your education seriously and you will have a brighter future ahead of you.

    Education is a gift and it's the only thing that no one can take it away from us. Education doesn't promise wealth but it offers knowledge and wisdom that we can use to our next journey of finding a job. There are so many famous billionaire who did not finished a single degree but instead they pursue their talent and become a successful person. You need to discover your talent and skills combine with your education and surely you will become rich.

    Getting a four-year degree course is something that most people really aspire too, some even go for post-graduates studies. While it's not a sure way to get rich, in general most people are able to get a decent life because they were able to graduate. On the other hand, I know of some people who doesn't have a college diploma that made it big. They were far more successful than those who work an 8-10 job. The secret to getting rich depends upon how you manage your life, how creative and resourceful you are to make a difference.

    Well I use to think education is the way forward and I don't give in to any argument with anyone on that but on a closer look at think education is not really the foundation of wealth as we think it is but just a guide to maintain wealth.

    I won't accept it anymore because most of the persons I know right now are very educated but are not as rich as those who spend their time investing in their talent.

    I think talent is a vital and important key to riches, not just talent but both talent and passion which is a zeal to take whatever you do seriously .

    Education is indeed very important but not necessary to become rich. College degrees are needed to have a stable income but not exactly a big one. Some professionals only make up enough to live through the day and nothing to spare. There are also some professionals who make a lot. Being rich is not a product of education. It is with combined effort, motivation, hard work and a good attitude. Don't stop. Better yourself. Never give up on your dreams. I believe that these are necessary to become rich and successful.

    Education is a tool. Just because you have it, doesn't mean that it'll help you get along further in life. There are many wealthy people who come from nothing, who might not have even finished high school. If you don't know how to use a tool, then it might as well be useless, and it might eventually rust away.

    Look at Bill Gates for example. He never finished his college education, and yet, he managed to build a business empire based on technology. While being learned gives a person an edge since it's possible that he's already encountered something similar theoretically, so many more factors can come into play. Hard work and dedication to any craft is paramount. A willingness to learn and adapt is another. I believe these are more important than any degree.

    Still, having a degree wouldn't hurt.

    Education increases the chance of entering a high-paying job. But you can still pursue your dream while educating yourself at school. You do not need to drop out because it hinders you to achieve your dream. You can use what you learned from school in reaching your goal.

    I think education is just to give you wisdom, skills and experience in living with others. I believe by the time you complete high school; you might have acquire all these.

    So if your target is to become rich, then you can start the business of becoming rich after the high school education.

    Remember Rich people are made up of both educated and non educated, so it does not mean you should be educated before becoming rich.

    With courage,determination honesty,integrity you can archive success without Education. A good example is Bill Gates,with determination he has become one of the most successful Entepreneur of all time. Everyone need to learn and study to achieve success. Education is necessary for empowerment. Education gives you an opportunity to build a foundation in which you can accomplish greatness.

    Hey. In my view, education is very important. it is not just the intellectual part, but it gives exposure and helps you view the world in a different perspective. Your reasoning becomes sound...you get what I mean. It grows your level of understanding, and interactions and so many other important life skills.

    It will definitely depend on the context of education. Rich people did not get rich without someone teaching them or without their willingness to learn. So I must say education is essential if you really want to get rich.
