Another issue in determining who is well-educated is: who gets a say in what it means to be well-educated (Kohn)? Every state has standardized tests. Some states like VA will still allow a student to get a diploma in High School if they fail the “SOL” test. Others will not allow it. The other problem with that “Test” is that not only do you practice it for weeks before the actual test, you get copies of that subject in the SOL tests from YEARS back starting from the year before. You pretty much get the answers to it. All you have to do is memorize. There is a difference between learning and memorizing. The only secret to my success is studying hours a day. Other smart people can pick up lessons without taking a single note. So, I may look less educated compared to the student who does not take notes at all. I believe it is all a matter of opinion.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
