Is there a correlation between education and happiness?
The question goes back to Aristotle – perhaps even earlier. Of
course there have been many more recent studies and articles
about the topic undertaken in universities and published in
popular periodicals. The New York Times published one on the day I’m writing
this called Does Education Make You Happy? The answer is yes, although
education is no guarantee. We can all point to educated people who aren’t
happy. But in general, the more educated a person is, the happier they are.
Some of the reasons are obvious.
