From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Over-education is the phenomenon in which individuals
feel burdened or oppressed by the weight of their education. A
good education is something prized in all cultures, but
education can be felt as an obstacle to happiness, and may
contribute to mental health problems.
Sometimes this term relates to the problem of employing
people with higher education. For example, some employers avoid
hiring people with doctoral degrees, because they find the
presence of someone more educated than themselves a potential
threat to their own position.
