Note: So do I need a higher education? Most of those who received higher education, and then came to the conclusion that he does not need it, begin anti-propaganda education. And often they do not even understand that they caused the unsatisfactory experience themselves. How is this possible? I want to tell you in this article. Skeptics of higher education ask you to read to the end and answer the questions. And if after answering questions, you will still consider that higher education is “evil”, then I am very seriously ready to delve into this issue and consider your arguments. So, why there was a theme. Recently, I increasingly hear and see, especially on the Internet, a lot of anti-advertising of higher education. And since I myself am in the system, I know it from the inside, I think I can talk about it, scold and praise it. And in general I have the right to raise this issue.
