Education Does Not Make One Better Education does not make intelligence. What is education? Education can be high school education, certain levels of college education, and life education; these are places that require particular knowledge or skills, for a profession. In many different aspects of life education, such as society, is not beneficial to your knowledge. Educational experiences through your daily life will not make young adolescents better through the exposure to television, the influence of music that is listened to, and trends on social networks.
First and foremost, educational experience through the exposure of television does not make adolescents better. When young children from the ages of two to seventeen, are exposed to inappropriate activity shown on TV shows they are bound to do what they are watching because of the simple fact that it catches their eyes.

The ones that listen to this music or hear this music are influenced by the ones who create it: titled as rappers. The genre that this music falls under is called Rap. Adults and, especially, teenagers that buy and download this music, influence others around them just by listening to rap music. A peer or co-worker could ask someone what music they are listening to and when they hear it they might like it. Their show of interest leads them to start condoning the music. Rap music spreads from one person to another, like a virus. Young boys these days look up to these artists that create this music. They claim them as their role models. For instance, Lil Wayne, a rapper that talks about smoking pot and getting high, having sexual relations with an uncountable amount of women, getting arrested for possession of drugs and illegal weapons. Sooner or later people start to talk like this, and it changes the way we…
