  • Yes, it does.

    Yes, I believe that school really does prepare students for life after school, which is usually work. Being in the working environment requires familiarity with certain subjects and, of course, working in teams and being around people. School prepares people for this from group projects, exams and participating in extracurricular activities.

  • School teaches us how to learn

    Many of the subjects taught in school are to show students a taste of each field, to see which area they're interested in. Even if a student is not interested in some subjects, they must take them as the different ways of learning in each subject prepares students for the different challenges they may face in the workplace. Being able to learn in many different ways and adapt to do projects with different areas of education allow students to widen the variety of tools and knowledge they can use in the workplace when they encounter a challeng. Being taught in school is hardly about learning, its about the way students learn, learning how to learn so students are more prepared when they finally enter whatever workplace they choose to pursue.

  • The skills we leant in school can be useful in work.

    Above memorising facts, mathematical formula, or sitting through lectures, schools teach us certain values, such as determination, which adds on to our character. It is through tonnes of practice and hard work that we managed to achieve that degree. Having a degree not only tells others that u are familiar with this particular subject, but it also shows that you are someone who is responsible and determined, who can be trusted with the job.

    Schools challenge our thoughts and train us to be critical thinkers. In school, we learn to articulate our ideas. Besides, nowadays schools place emphasis on soft skills, and provide ample opportunities for students develop their character.

  • sure it is.

    As university life, this is the last happiest time before you graduate. You could got the financial support by any way. You can do what you want without the responsibility. But also is a preparation for the future. You might make a lot of good friends from everywhere. Different personality let you know how to deal with the problem about interpersonal. Learn how to give a presentation in front of people, to know the interest and do the best in everything, try everything fresh. So, school is a good environment to find out our interests and fix our dream and make every step more determined.

  • School does prepare you for work.

    School is very important to teaching you skills. Especially English and Math. If you decide to get into the business world, you can take computers and typewriting. They even offer classes for home economics, or child development. You need math in nearly every occupation out there. If you take the right courses, you can be well prepared when you graduate.

  • It does to a certain consent

    It does prepare u for work life, To a certain consent. It gives u basic social organisation and time management skills plus the subjects u need for your future career. School can't teach u everything, School is there to help u with certain things. School wasn't made to learn students how to brush their teeth or how to take care of siblings. It is mostly common sense or its not the teachers job to teach u that skill.

  • No, it only gives useless trivia

    If I am gonna be a phone app creator and release apps about Creepypastas, I don't need to learn about Rome, Harriet Tubman, Music, Rocks, I only need to be thought about Creepypastas and drawing the map, So school doesn't prepare you for work, It only gives you useless trivia

  • No, it doesn't

    School isn't good preparation for going into the real world and obtaining a career. Yes, you learn some basic skills, but that's about it. School doesn't teach any of the life skills that are needed or social skills, either. School is very different from work, from the expectations to the environment.

  • No it doesn't.

    All it does is teach basic skills, the ideology of 'be like everyone else or die' and about time management and deadlines, and that's just about it.

    School doesn't teach you anything like how to balance a checkbook, or how to pay a mortgage, or how to buy a house. It doesn't teach you about different workplaces or skills you can apply to them, and it doesn't teach you other important things like self-esteem and confidence.

    It doesn't prepare you for work, or if it does, not enough.

  • It depends on the kind of work.

    Whether or not school prepares a student for work depends a lot on the type of work they end up doing. It prepares a student pretty well for, say, a job in academia. However, education on a lot of other things involved in many kinds of work environments is lacking.

  • School does not prepare you for work.

    I do not think school prepares you for work. Any skills I use during work I know from hands on experience. The knowledge I have learned throughout school has for the most part been useless and I do not use it during my job at all. Other things prepare you, not school.

  • School is a waste of time

    -They don't know "real life" things like taxes, Bills or even steps to purchasing a house or getting a job

    -many people state that they know a lot about world war 1 +2 but can't understand credit card stuff or loans

    -students don't get a say on what they learn. If one wants to be a gamer they can't just focus on gaming. If one wants to be a zoologist then maths won't effect them much.

    -adults say that any skills they use during work are from hands on experience. The knowledge they have learned throughout school has for the most part been useless and they do not use it during their job at all.

  • Well, not the American school system.

    The school system in America is based off of Industrial Age standards. This means that you all sit in rows, have little creativity, and no socializing or group work. However, most jobs and careers require teamwork, out-of-the-box thinking, and might not have clean-cut rows. Other school systems might tell you a different story, like ones in Finland or in Japan, however.

  • If our students can't think independently, how are they able to work independently?

    They can't. School forces us to think what, not how. They tell us what to think, feed useless information into our brains to memorize then forget, not tell us how to think. If students are lacking the capability to think, then how are they able to work efficiently? Our public education system was built to produce obedient workers, unable to think or defend themselves, meant to work in a factory. Today, most decent-paying jobs involve some form of thinking, which students do not possess. School kills and suppresses our creativity, which is extremely harmful in workplaces where you need to think outside the box to find a solution. The public education system teaches us to fear failure, scaring students into conforming and performing well out of fear, creating unmotivated students. Students that are scared to fail won't put in effort and will not care. This trait will follow them to their workplace. From day one, school has taught us that monetary gain leads to successful living. We are taught that the primary goal in life is to earn a good salary, and we have to sacrifice one third of our lives forcing ourselves to memorize facts, and do particular things just so we can get a degree that will allow us to work later on --- probably as corporate slaves, as that's the only thing school can prepare us for; to be slaves, conforming to the school system since we were 5. Sacrificing our brains, curiosity, creativity, and motivation.

    Many of the subjects taught in school are to show students a taste of each field, to see which area they're interested in.

  • It's out dated

    Traditional school structure does not prepare students for:

    Technical proficiency: this is a must in so many job roles today. Any job in a start up requires technical proficiency, retailers are all moving online, marketing and sales require you to use CRM, SEO, and other tools, writers get jobs much more easily if they know how to code, etc.

    Self discipline/motivation: Many jobs are continuous efforts and aren't quite so deadline-based as they once were. Many people are becoming entrepreneurs, freelancers, remote workers, or online aficionados. Having strict schedules and deadlines, with guidance throughout, does not help students gain a required discipline and work-ethic needed to succeed.

    Life skills: as many above has pointed out- school does not teach you how to do your taxes, sign up for a checking account, invest money into 401k, bonds etc. It does not teach you about healthcare insurance plans, child rearing, having healthy relationships or remaining self-assured and confident. It doesn't teach you how to budget, eat healthy, communicate emotions effectively or sustainable exercises.

    These are only a few among the many arguments about why schooling- implemented in the 2nd industrial revolution- needs to change.
