General education is something which any one of us learns in the childhood and it must be essential as well but as we grow or between the age group of 15-18 we have seen the world we are bound to have enough of general education

I feel like this debate would be better titled "Specialized vs General". When I read "professional education" I think of colleges or those expensive charter/private schools.

I like the idea of specializing education before the teen years, since people are capable of following what they like, or are good at, by then.

I would've loved jumping into a school focused on directing me toward engineering or a science, well before I wasted another 6 years on dumbed-down, cookie-cutter curriculums in sh*tty public schools. Employers could scout schools focused on fields that lead to jobs they need, and schools could more easily find teachers that would benefit the students that are attending them by scouting those same employers.

Someone who's creative with writing/artwork can learn about basic math and a lot more about literature/history.

Someone who's fantastic at math and logic can attend courses for statistics, or engineering, physics, chemistry, whatever.

Professional education help increase and improve production and services to society. It enables people to work and earn money and improve their income. But some general knowledge is useful.

General education provides students with a variety of knowledge rather than just becoming a master of one. Having knowledge about various topics can make a person well rounded. It also exposes people to areas that they may have a knack for but would not have known otherwise because they would just concentrate on gaining knowledge in one area/profession. Students should be exposed to different learning experiences in order to determine which works best for them.
