In this week’s episode, Bev and Marina talk about education and what it means in today's world. What do you think about when you hear the word education? Does it conjure up images of school and/or university, or something much more than, and far beyond, those institutions? What about our education system itself? Is it providing the best possible environment for our children, or is narrow and outdated? Are exams actually the best way of measuring a child's ability, or should they have been left back in the Victorian times that created them? Bev and Marina discuss these topics and more, including the snobbery around going to university, choosing schools for our kids, and the ladies' own experience of education.   How much has your perspective of learning and education changed as you've got older, and does maturity bring with it an appreciation of what a privilege it is in a way we couldn't understand in our youth? Perhaps in terms of living a life As Good As It gets, we should remember that our education doesn't end when we leave school or university; learning is something we can, and are, continually doing, and not always within the confines of the traditional idea of education. All we need to do is take a look at the world around us, and the wealth of information that is at our fingertips on a daily basis, and we may become far more educated than we might have expected.
