• You misspelled 'necessary'....

    You own incompetent spelling serves as enough of a reason for why school is necessary.... I mean you completely botched the word to, it wasn't just one wrong letter. Thank you though for being the poster-child of why we do need school though, it makes my job a LOT easier....

  • School Is Essential to the American Dream

    Today, education is crucial to succeeding in the world. It's growing more and more difficult to succeed without a college degree, and any success is almost unheard of without a high school diploma. The world is only going to continue to be more educated, and if not everyone has an equal chance to obtain an education, it will be impossible for the poor, who are already at a disadvantage, to have upwards mobility. If school wasn't mandatory, the poor would generally drop out earlier for various reasons (e.G. Working to support family). This would lead to a general decline in the literacy of urban youth, and hinder their ability to compete with children from better off families.

  • No but yes at the same time

    Let me explain, school itself isn't necessary. The stuff we learn is not necessary, however the fact that you make it all the way through the difficult levels of school is necessary, because it shows that a person is dedicated and has the ability to learn. 75% of things learned at school are not necessary, however it is important for colleges and jobs to be able to see that you where able to deal with these 75% well and have the ability to work with these difficult topics. So the stuff we learn isn't necessary, but the fact that we learn it is. Kind of confusing yes, but that's just how I feel.

  • Necessary, but not mandatory

    The freedom of education is a public necessity. Needless to say, it should be severely reformed- for I feel that it doesn't adequately equip students for the future. It shouldn't, however, be forced upon the populous as mandatory. Both state-funded schools and privately owned schools should always remain an optional alternative to the workforce.

  • Better education Program

    Yes education is the key to succeding in life. Knowledge is power.Why would get rid of education. Poor education programs does not mean you should get rid of education as whole. Developing a better education program is what is needed. Maybe paying the teachers more money and they would care more and take more time out to make sure your child is learning.

  • To a certain extent.

    12th grade should only be necessary for those who want to do a job with more math skills required. We dont need to learn the math version's alphabet if we dont plan to become server managers or something. After middle school we start learning crazy math that is wrong if not done how the school wants it.
    Common core forces you to forget PEMDAS and do crazy math that makes no sense. All common core does is make smart kids feel dumb and dumb kids feel smart. It's a f***ed up system that is syphened of it's simplicity.

  • School is necessary.

    I'm 13. I hate school and am a terrible speller and I'm terrible at math. But if you have no education you cant have a job. If you want to get married and have kids the I think that an education is necessary for that. Because one wants a stupid husband of wife because certainly don't!!

  • Yes, but it shouldn't be

    Unfortunately in our current society, you must be over-qualified for a position in order to be hired. Like many others here, I also think that 80% (or more) of the stuff we learn is useless. And why do teachers think that shoving things down our gullets will help us "learn" it. I can tell you right now, memorization and learning are not the same thing. Furthermore, our ability to remember what that motor mouth said three weeks ago and write it down on paper shouldn't determine our future. We should be able to learn what we want to learn when we want to learn it, and school simply doesn't allow that because of the hours of "necessary" work that cripple us and our time. However, the development of our society has chosen its path, so strap in...Its a long road.

  • School Is Necessary

    I think school is necessary because you need to learn so you can get into college and get a good education for your job so that people will pay you and that way you can live and afford everything. That is why I think school is very necessary for life.

  • School is very important in our daily lives.....

    It's so much fun.....
    Go ahead and admit it, school can be fun. Learning new things is fun. Exploring new ideas is fun. Succeeding in your classes is fun. Excelling in your extracurricular activities is fun. Even eating school lunch with your friends is fun. We know not all schools are created equal and for some of you, the buildings and equipment are less than awesome. But your quest for knowledge goes beyond what happens in the classroom. You're learning from your teachers, your classmates, and the entire school staff. When it's all said and done, you'll graduate from high school with a lot of great memories of all the fun times you had in school.

  • No life skills!

    Ok just because we learn addition and that does not mean we have REAL life skills like hunting or plating a garden! Yeah we need to know how to do math but will it kill them to teach us better life skills like thos! NO I DONT THINK SO! Pls

  • Part of the abortionist agenda.

    School is just so that we can FORCE children to learn about s*x. Then, when children get pregnant, abortion doctors kill the babies with our tax dollars and laugh maniacally as they rich children out of the womb! It all adds up. You might pretend that you don't know, but deep down, you know this in your heart to be true!

  • School is dumb

    School teaches you the non-necessary skills of life. If a person learns how to pay their bills and everything clean a house etc... And be able to work in the farming industry then you will be able to make it in life. You will have food and money. Look at the people in our past, most of the people back in the day didn't ever go to school a day in their entire life and they we're still able to provide the necessities for their family. School is absolutely the stupidest thing in the world, just another way for the government to collect a pay check.

  • I learnt more from home then school

    Before attending school, I eventually learnt how to read and write from trial and error. Since then I've loved to read books and was more informed on things I was supposed to learn that year then the rest of my year. Even now I still excel in things that I'm required to learn in the future but not now. The only thing that drags me down is the fact I dislike schools. Imagine this: You're attacked on the street but you're too shocked to scream and before you know it stolen one of tour belongings, what do you do? Oh yes, clearly in this situation Math will help you or even telling your teacher after the event has occured. How many schools teach that things are not very friendly after you'ce graduated?

  • Read This Article
    This article sums up why the school system is so messed up. It shows that the school system is a ancient tradition that has yet to adjust to the changes of the last few CENTURIES. We need to have the schools totally demolished, reasses what kids actually need (not homework!, and rebuild a better system
    This is the start of the future.

  • Education is not school

    Education is important and children can learn outside of school. Parents should allow time for a child to get curious, that's when a child may discover their love for video games goes beyond leisure and enters the technical aspects, or a love for building blocks can be developed into a love for architecture. Oprah, Steve Jobs, Spielberg, and many others never graduated from a higher learning institution but Oprah's love for people developed into the ability to help people. " If you don't follow our dreams someone else will hire you to follow theirs." People learn more through real life than they do cramming for standardized tests.

  • You're not going to die if you don't go to school

    Not going to school is definitely not recommended. Humans lived for hundreds and thousands of years without school but we survived. In society at our present day, school is becoming a major, major part of our life. If you don't go to school at 1000 BC you're just an everyday hunter / hutwife, but now, you become a under-qualified beggar.

  • You can do the same at home in half the time!

    I am currently in middle school, not sure about high school, but everything I've ever learned in shook I can learn the same if not better online or on YouTube. I can even learn everything in about a quarter of the time. All school gives you is a lesson plan.

  • Does Not teach you how to succeed in life

    We go to school for about 7 hours. We wake up early in the morning and go to school to learn about things that will not always help later in life. They do not teach how to get a job or how to get car insurance. They do not teach you how to manage money nor how to spend your money correct. I do not see how knowing what happened during the cold war will help me find a place to live or when will solving for x help me . Okay maybe some of the classes we take will help for our jobs we want but sitting down for an hour getting our brains brainwashed about politics . In history we see the American side of everything . What about everyone else's facts.?

  • In what school do they teach life lessons?

    They literally do it no where its insane if i ask a teacher,how do i clean my room. WTF are they gonna say, put stuff where it goes. Like for real your most likely a single adult with 40 cats u over weight loser stop being a teacher and do something with your life.
