What Is An
Do you know ... do you really know ... what it means to be an educated person? We are told that it is a good thing to be an educated person. We are told that people who are educated can live better lives by getting better jobs and doing a lot of important things that require a good education. That's very true. The problem is that we are often confused and mistaken about what it truly means to be an educated person.
You see, education is not an accomplishment or a diploma. It is an attitude ... it is a way of approaching life.
You see, education is not simply knowing a lot of facts. It is an attitude ... it is a way of approaching life.
You see, education is not simply a matter of being well trained in a career skill. It is an attitude .. it is a way of approaching life.
The key to becoming a truly educated person is learning how to learn. And I don't mean learning how to pass exams, stuffing your head full of facts, or mastering a skill. Some of your classmates at GED Prep are disappointed because we are not helping them play out their mistaken notions of education. In these classes, you are expected to learn how to learn -- how to find the information you need in order to accomplish a goal, how to struggle with difficult situations and still manage to grab onto knowledge and understanding. You need to plan you work, keep track of your accomplishments, interact with others in the same situations, and display your new-found levels of ability and understanding.
If you are content to be a trained seal who merely masters a couple of tricks for passing the GED, that's your business. You will be disappointed with your GED Prep experiences at Free-Ed.Net, though, because your classmates are being prepared for passing the GED, getting into college, and learning how to learn whatever they need for a more successful and rewarding life. It is sad to see a person going through life not having a clue about what they are missing.
