umm this is what get to cheating.....
see the topic is that the education system is just asking us to mug up but think of it as if a doctor mug's up so,
if a engineer mugs up so,
the things just go wrong


Do you understand the meaning of the word "context"? Do you understand the meaning of the word "mug"? Do you understand the difference between this discussion and the one you quoted from?

Okay. So, to sum up your statements, you are saying that the topic is that the education system is just asking us to usually cylindrical drinking cup with a handle up, and you are admitting to having quoted me out of context in attempting to prove a completely unrelated point.

Is School to make us a Good personality or grade us?


The school is to educate you. As all workplaces, efficiency has to be counted, therefor grades were invented. Above grades of course stands the usefulness of the study in the grown-up life.
Schools are not made to form your personality. That's the job of your parents and people in general. A good school of course cares for your behaviour as you spend a lot of time there,and even better schools educate you on the principles of ethics (what is a science, therefor doesn not recognise good or evil).

If a school's said to be a place to worship,a temple so why does that temple cost's us?


I assume you refer to the phrase here "schools are temple of knowledge". Well, that's just a figure of speech, invented at the very down of Separation of State and Church.
But to give an answer: schools are not free to uphold. They have expenses. In a "western" society the state has enough money to provide the minimal resources for free for those who really need, and you do not have to pay for the straight-out education, but you'll be encouraged to buy at least minimal-quality stuff for pen(cil), notebooks, and books what you can handle however you want. This system ease the taxes, limits the time people spend in the education-system before going to work, and educates a little financially.

It's practical why Does only big people with big money are successful?


Bigger salary, bigger chances, easier ways. But nothing is guaranteed. A lazy, dumb, or simply unfortunate rich can go bankrupt, while a poor guy with a good idea (think of Microsoft, or Facebook) can go successful.

why poor people are even not let in the school?


Again: education costs money. If a state is so poor it can't afford free basic education, than it has to compromise.
All state though as soon as possible makes basic education absolutely free for everyone because that way people with talent can be discovered, placed to works matching their talent, and on other field they remain healthier by not doing dumb things (eg. they learn to wash hands!), and have higher moral for the hope that they at least have the chance to be rich one day.

Also, in english slang, a gullible person. To "mug up" also means cramming before an exam or suchlike. I think the term he is searching for is "**** (Alternative short name for rooster) up".

Were you just being deliberately harsh, or did you really not stop for two seconds to consider that "mug" was slang? The above quote puts the phrase "mug up" in a very clear context: it means you've made a mistake, like "screwed up" or "messed up." The word "screw" is just as out-of-place as "mug," so I don't see what the problem is. Besides, even if you didn't know, he literally provided a definition for his usage of the word.

I suspected it was some form of slang, or at least a miswording/mistranslation of it. I really don't care what he is trying to argue at this point, as he is arguing with the wrong person for the wrong reason in the wrong context and the wrong thread. That is all I am trying to address here.

On second thought,

Realy?
have you seen the education in India?
You cannot say anything without proof.


To answer your question, no. I have not seen the education system in India, and I doubt anyone else here has. I think I can safely say that the education system in India and the education system in America (and Britain, for that matter) are entirely different. I'm not sure how exactly you want us to respond.

It's like starting a discussion over the contents of Thai food in Thailand when all I've ever eaten is Western steakhouse food in America. Yes, they are both food, but it's impossible for one to provide an accurate opinion on the other, especially with proof.
