I think kids should learn about school because it would explain how school was started and invented and (We could wast time too)

History was meant for people to learn lessons from the past mistakes of our people, what is there to learn from the origin of schools?

Well what have we ever learned about that in our classes we have not learned about that in our classes The history and origin of school is the power of how school started in the first place you could learn about then go back to history and etc.

I don't know what you're saying, but I can provide a few examples of things you've probably learned about in school. The Civil Rights movement taught you not to discriminate. All the wars told you how much wars suck and that we shouldn't go into them anymore.

What does that have to do with any of this

Con

It has to do with learning from past mistakes. Do you need more examples? The history of school wouldn't help because the kids would just fool around and not listen making it a waste of class time, however with different things like wars kids think it's interesting.

Im talking about later in the year when the people already learn about the history and the mistakes of the many men that made them then learn the origin of school as a mental or physic order of words

That might be alright, but the origin of school isn't helpful at all, maybe just over-viewing the first one and learn about the person that made it, the lessons that teachers taught at school wouldn't help because long ago they didn't learn the right things.

But if they taught you about school then I would think people would as a possibility stop saying they hate school and throw fits about it and watch why they need to learn in school otherwise it will keep going on today kids saying "School stinks" and in some cases run from school or even attempt suicide if we taught the origin of school wouldn't you think that people would in further years when your a grandma or a grandpa you may tell your children that this is the reason to learn in school.

Trust me no one will actually like learning about school. It will bore the kids and make them waste time, making it a waste of the teacher's time.

History isn't just to learn about "past mistakes". History is so that we can learn our origins, what makes us who we are, what achievements we made, what improvements can be made, and so on and so forth. To limit the significance of our past to just the "mistakes" we made is really undermining the overall importance of studying history.

Studying the history of school might be an interesting topic, and perhaps it would create incentive for more students to appreciate the fact that they are able to receive an institutionalized education in the first place. That kind of education is not a free for all. It is a privilege.
