E) Invaluable

..........................., the importance of education - particularly among developed countries has decreased. Estate agents, ....................., property developers and online business owners have flourished to become multi-millionaires. In my opinion, education is still very important, but some people disagree to argue that it is less valuable than it once was. I disagree with this statement and this essay will explore the reasons why.  

Firstly, in my country, Pakistan, education is very well-revered. Only the upper-middle classes have a good level of education and even when you choose a partner, the level of education can be of some importance too. A famous case is ................ who was a girl trying to go to school, but was shot by the Taliban who are against the education of women. Even very rich families still study to become educated - this is particularly true in places like India, Pakistan and the Middle East where education has high value. The same can be said for countries like China and certain places in Africa.  

On the other hand, in developed countries - people have become social media stars, Instagram models, ...............shop millionaires with little education or formal training. 

However, it is my belief that they should have education as a back up, as when all else fails education can give them something to do if these things are no longer viable. ...................is a back up plan, but not only does it teach you good study skills - it helps you to develop your critical thinking skills and much more.  

There is no doubt that education is less valuable to some people in society today. However, to those who still do not have access to even the basic level of education it is held in high esteem. For those people education is .......................... 

To sum up, I disagree with the statement, because each factor will depend on the individual circumstances of the person, their family background, their economic level and much more. Education begins in the classroom - as Socrates famously said: "I know that I know nothing". While education begins in the classroom it is a lifelong process. We learn something new every day and in my opinion those who are willing to learn are those who succeed to grow further in society and in their lives.
