Communication is an indispensable part of our lives.Consequently, in order to communicate, we need to have general knowledge and experience. On the other hand, if we want to create or to discover new things, we need to have academic education. I believe that not only academic education but general experience and knowledge are also important to have.
It is a common belief that if someone wants to be a member of a group of people, he needs to have general education and knowledge, otherwise, he will feel estranged because it wiil be diggicult for this person to communicate with the other people and possibly he wiil becom isolated.
On the other hand, wiyhout academic education, the science, the arts and technology will stop developing. This means that human beings will stop developing and that is contrary to our nature and may be unhealthy.
In conclusion I believe that both types of knowledge are very important. The first completes the second, because academic education is necessary for development, while general knowledge and experience are very important for communication and friendship.
