What is the point of School? Just Do It Anyway

Everyone wants to be a musician, actor, model, reality TV star or sports person. I would be a hypocrite if I said the reason we all go to school is not just to make money and live a comfortable life. But now there are career paths that do not necessarily require school, so is school still a necessity?

Maybe I am programmed to believe school is still a necessity despite the fact I am a living witness of having 2 degrees but being unemployed for 2 years. The question remains, what is the point of school? Did I mention that employers are also just looking for people with experience for entry positions?  As a fresh graduate, how would you have industry experience when you were too busy with courseworks and probably a part-time shop position to pay your way through school. This means the only other way to come out with some experience as a graduate is to have undertaken unpaid internships during your studies. But you needed to make some money to survive school and did I mention to get considered for internships you also need experience?

Back to my question, what is the point of school?
