A person that gets a good education will become a more dependable worker, a better citizen, and a stronger consumer. For example, people would rather higher an educated man rather than a non-educated person. When looking at the long-term effects on an education, our economy needs these educated people to know how to keep the economy efficent and not get into a bind in the future. Someone said if they were Bill Gates (Since is very educated). Would he understand the economy better? Of course not but that's not what I am trying to say. How advanced do you think the computer would be without him? The more educated someone is, the more knowledge one obtains on different subject. Each person has a different level of understanding for each subject there is to learn about. That is why there are experts in every feild you could go into and each part is a piece of the puzzle that makes this world/ economy grow. Since tecnology has come as far as it has in the past decades, there are important skills that must be learned.
