    Yes of course. Its necessary for one to have education. Knowledge is power. Its even an equalizer. Everyone is equal in education.

    These great geniuses, like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs were blessed people with a very rare gift. The key to the success of our lives is only in our hands. And that key we can achieve, we can only achieve through education. If your desire is to win in life, grow professionally, fulfill your personal dreams, spare no effort to add as much knowledge as possible. Knowledge is the key that will open the doors to your success. And all you need is a little effort. It is turning that knowledge into action.

    For me, the necessary things you need to succeed are good character and attitude. It doesn't necessarily have to be education alone. Education only gives you an edge not necessarily success. I have seen a lot of educated people who never succeeded. Search for people who are at the top of their chosen careers. Some of them, are high school dropouts, college undergraduate and even elementary education only. You will be surprised at how they manage to get there. It was due to their determination and hard work how they ended up on the top.

    Education may or may not be the key to success. It really depends on the person, and his or her character. I know a lot of people who graduated from nursing, marketing and business administration, but instead of pursuing a career in that profession, they choose to work on a different field. Are they successful right now? Yes, they are. Some of them are even team leaders in their companies. Formal education may not be always the key to success, but the person’s values and character will always be. Perseverance, patience and hard work pays off.

    I don't think education is a key to success. It just solely depends on anyones hardwork and perseverance. What is education when you're just lying there all day playing pc/mobile games stand up and eat just repeat it everyday. I know someone who graduated two degree courses but still remain poor because of his laziness. No house of his own, no savings. And, I also knew someone who never graduated primary school but living a good life now. It's because he works hard to achieve his goals in life, persevered and keeps moving on.

    Education is the key to success. Education can be divided into two the formal one and the informal.Formal education is gotten within the four walls of the classroom.Informal education is not something you get within the four walls of a classroom. Education gives you knowledge and you need knowledge to compete in this competitive world.

    I also believe in the power of education. I have watched from a television program how powerful education is in lifting one's life out of poverty. A certain student left his poor family and hometown. He went to a bustling city and applied for a job and at the same time went to school. He was a working student. After he graduated, he started an engineering company. To cut the long story, he became a millionaire and a very successful engineer.

    I believe that there are more true stories to prove that this is true. I remembered the story of my own grandparents. They were not educated. But they were farmers and they work to send their children to school. My grandmother boasts of this that though are just farmers yet all her children finished their college education.

    All of her children have respective families. One of them went to work in London. The other went to work and lived in the United States. In short, through the hard labor of my grandparents they invested in the education of their children. The children in return does well in school and graduates their courses. Now they are successful in their own fields. That is how powerful education is in changing the status in a person's life.

    Yes. Education is still the key to success and can be the way to escape poverty. Though there are people who were dropout college students that are successful today. However, this does not indicate that going to school is worthless and would not help you get a job in the future. These kind of people are smart and could think innovatively. They apply their brilliant ideas to solve a particular problem, which is helpful to the community. But, most of us are not like them so we still needed to go to school to be educated and perhaps apply our acquired knowledge in the real world.

    I too, don't support that education is really the key to success.

    If you are able to complete your high school and can read and write well, I think that will be the time for you to turn and look for what you intend to do in order to achieve your aim by becoming rich.

    Growing up my parents has always taught me to value education .They told us that we are not rich and a good education is what they could ever leave us. With that in mind I continued studying and before I know it I earned a degree. There is more to studying than earning a diploma. When you are in school you grow as an individual and you learn to use your knowledge in your everyday life. Some people will say that we do not need education to become rich. They will name names of famous billionaires that are college drop-out. I think a lot of people are missing the point. These billionaires did study and went to school they just did not earn a degree. So basically we need education to become successful and for some lucky people they did not need a degree to become successful.

    First of all, how do you measure or define success? Does it mean amassing of wealth? A lot of people connotate success with lots of money. However, a lot of people even with their mountains of wealth are not even happy. For me, success is having a happy and contented life. While having wealth may lead to success because if you have lots of money, you will be able to help a lot of people by creating jobs and charities, money is just one factor to success. For me, other aspects of success are having a healthy well being, a healthy spiritual life, and a happy family life. In all of these, everybody needs education and you do not need to end there. Practice what you've learned in school. Getting a diploma is not enough. You have learned proper nutrition and wellness in your school, apply it in your life. You've learned how to be a good Christian or whatever religion you have in your church, use that knowledge to be a better person towards your neighbor. You have learned how to be a good parent, a good child or a good brother or sister from your parents. You have to do the same when you grow up. Therefore, education is not only learned in school. However, I do not disregard that school education is not necessary. But it is not solely the key to success and knowledge is not only gained from school. It is everywhere.

    Well, its depends on what type of job you are looking for. Some people in this world are very lucky to have been seen and are now famous celebs, rappers, singers, etc. But these jobs can fall and fail at any time, however by staying in education you can obtain a long-term job like banking which will last for a longer time and can maybe even help you earn more money than being a rapper. To conclude, yes education is crucial to obtaining success these days

    Education is not necessarily the most important thing. I think people don't consider why it may be that people succeed. The education system mainly is based on learning facts and information, then regurgitating it for a test. It is true that having a degree in college is usually the first thing employers look at when getting a job, but if that is why we say education is important, do we actually value education, or the jobs it gets us? People who do well in school may not do well in life, because life is more than just memorizing facts. It is also important to have creativity, drive, grit, and a bunch of other things not taught in school.

    Education is the key to success. If someone wasn't educated, they wouldn't have the means to survive in this world. Of course, sometimes it depends on certain circumstances. Nowadays, education may be seen as second to money. Universities seem to be more aristocratic than based on merit, denouncing all of the hard work students have put into their education. People aren't as worried about their learning abilities as they are about their wealth nowadays...

    Education is truly the key to success, in the sense that most people need to be educated in order to have the skills required to pursue any job and also enter any profession.

    I agree, education is not only required to establish a good financial condition or a luxurious life but also it makes identification of yours in front of society. An uneducated person sacrifices a lot throughout his/her life. For example, it will be very difficult for him/her to make his/her children educated. It will be very difficult for an uneducated person to make balance and stay updated in society. There are tons of reasons why education is the most necessary thing now a day.

    What I have understood about education is not to be only on bookish knowledge it is beyond obtaining the degrees from school and colleges or university. We actually register to formal setting of school education because everyone needs to bring together and learn how to read and write , in this process we are training our self as literate person. so as to access to any form of education in different languages and materials. Education is all about moral values,knowledge, positive as well as critical thinking. To achieve success of course education is important so as to allow yourself to think out of the box
