and why is a good education so important?
Here are a few thoughts on
education from MyNewOffice.com.
Why should we get get a good
education? How do we get a good education? Is it all related to just having more
money, or is there more to it than that?

a good education, whether we have attained that education or not! Sure, a good
education allows you to buy tangible items you've seen advertised in the magazines

wanted to get an education! Some 20 years later after owning a computer store,
I am headed back to school again, working at nights to save money for school.
