[color=green]Importance of a high school Diploma (when the audience is high school dropout)
Education is not meant to provide with degrees and diplomas to become doctors, engineers, MBAs and accountants. It is the way of pruning a person’s abilities, to help him become a good human being and a well-mannered citizen. In simple words, the penetration of civilization in a culture can be estimated by the percentage of the society’s educated people.
It may occur that the primary and secondary school classes are just a small fraction of the professional careers, and therefore their results can be neglected. However it is not the real case. Any graduate can correct this misconception of young children, because he knows the importance of the basics which are taught in these years of school. Besides, no professor in a professional university, will try to clarify those small misconceptions of a weak child, which he assumes to be understood by every child. Then, the weak subjects become a nightmare.
Admittedly, low scores of high school diploma can lead to problems in taking admissions in eminent universities. Thus, it may seem very simple and easy to avoid the results of high schools, but actually it is a life long loss to any child.
Even if a person do not enter any professional career after high school, his strong basic knowledge of all subjects can help him in acheiving any goal in life. His knowledge gives him confidence in himself, and help him in better understanding of real life problems and situations.
Thus, taking a high school failure, an easy matter can result in severe problems for a person.
