I agree with Oussama but I didn't undrestand how he will continue his studies in electronics in Turkey.

What is the true meaning of education?
I think learning knowledge,skills, values,beliefs and habits.
I hope Oussama will do one day because he is very confident.

I totally agree, we have not to stop learning whatever the reasons. To be educated and updated leads to be qualified employee, respectable and happy individual.

Hope he achieves his goal soon and makes his dream come true.

yes i agree with oussama, because i think that we can never get a well built country if the citizens are not educated

That is so terrible-when the war breaks in your life and tears it apart. I hope that oussama will realize his dream and he and his family, and the whole country of Syria will never confront war again. And of course all the terrorists will be burned by daenerys

Yes I am agree with Oussama, I think that if our goal is to build our country we have to be prepared for this, the education is the way..

Yes, I agree. When you learn something like math, arts, history or other thing you create a opportunity, many opportunities will appear in front of you.

"The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness." Proverb 15.14 - Solomon

Yes i agee with Oussama, education is so importante.
For me, education is the only way to get a better life, hopefully a happy one.
