Question:
Do you agree or disagree with the following statement
There is nothing that an uneducated person can teach an educated person


In my eyes I think that there are a lot of things that an uneducated person can teach an educated person. The main reason why I think so is because even though the person is uneducated he may have knowledge from his experiences or from his upbringing. This is especially true for older gentlemen. Some of the most successful people in the world have been school dropouts.Although many people will not agree with my point of view and say that such cases are not the norm. One one hand such people are rare, but on the other hand most uneducated people will have atleast some information worth listening to.

First, I believe that an uneducated person can get knowledge without an education because of his upbringing or by his life experiences. A 60 year uneducated king would without a doubt have more knowledge than a 25 year old educated soldier. There are two types of smarts book smarts and street smarts.
For example Richard Branson is one of the richest men in the world but he dropped out of high school to start his first business. Richard Branson will have more knowledge about business management than an MBA student even though Branson does not have any formal schooling.

Second, In my view an uneducated man has a chance of gaining knowledge from books and news papers even without a formal education. He or She can get someone to read them for her, especially if she or he is rich.
For instance, a rich house wife may get bored because she stays home while her husband goes to work all day. To pass the time she might read books relating to whatever field she is interested in. She has a lot of free time in her hands, so she might read for a large number of hours a do and hence may amass a wealth of knowledge

In conclusion, because of the above reasons and for many other reasons I believe that every person uneducated and educated has knowledge worth teaching. Uneducated people are not as disadvantaged as they may seem.
