School




Studies have shown that well-educated societies have lower rates of violence and crime, and societies that emphasize accessible, effective education see their economies improve as well. As the world moves toward automation and demands more high-knowledge workers, education will be at the forefront of ensuring that the workforce is ready and able to tackle challenges that arise. The knowledge learned in school plays a major role in peoples' daily lives. Knowledge about history improves cultural understanding, and basic math skills help people keep their finances in order. English courses teach students how to read, comprehend and analyze written material, which is a crucial skill for nearly all modern jobs. School is also important for developing important social skills. Communication skills are important for succeeding in a wide range of fields, and spending time with others improves students' social skills. Humans are social animals, and schools provide a means of ensuring that young people have a stimulating environment that will lead to more empathy, understanding and social growth. As someone who has spent over half of her life as a student, I can vouch for the importance of school. While new school years are often met with groans and complaints, it is our civic duty as parents and human beings, to educate our children, not to mention ourselves. School serves a number of purposes from building confidence to teaching children the importance of teamwork and working with others. School helps guide youngsters though the establishment of a daily routine, which is of utmost importance as we direct them toward the workplace, and as they become productive members of society. Students are provided with access to new ideas, including science and language, and are given the opportunity to learn more about world cultures, geography, and personal history. Let’s take a look at why school is so important to children of all ages (and adults too! Learning about new subjects and becoming proficient in a skill can help a child (or an adult) grow exponentially. School increases confidence because I we have access to classes, teachers, and administrators that support our love of the arts, and will give us a community of fellow artists to have as a support system. This small community gave us a sense of belonging and a safe place to experiment and grow our skills. Humans are social animals and we need people around us to survive. School, can be an excellent way to build a network of friends and a like-minded community. A school environment offers students the opportunity to learn to work with others, which is a very important “real world” skill. Through games and projects, and even participation in after-school sports, children can learn the importance of forging relationships with each other. These activities can also help us learn to manage difficult personalities, find our way as leaders, and better understand the way we work as individuals. Working with others is all about managing different personalities and finding ways to make your workday run more smoothly. School doesn’t merely teach facts and figures and numbers and letters. School is crucial in preparing children to become their future selves. Perhaps one of the most important reasons to attend school is the wealth of knowledge and information provided within the school setting. School provides a safe haven for the spread of ideas, and often gives us access to subjects and ideas that we wouldn’t regularly find in our homes or with our friends. A school can function as the center of a person’s community and can act as a meeting place, a place for children to grow, and a second home. School is not only important to us as individuals school helps society progress by educating its members who bring their newly acquired information to the workforce. School boosts confidence and teaches us to establish and maintain friendships, and helps us learn how to work together as a team, which is a primary tenet of any successful society. Without school, knowledge would not spread as quickly, and our access to new ideas and people could easily be cut off. A world without school would create difficulties in language learning, and would stall the dispersion of economic growth, tolerance, and the appreciation of our fellow human beings. For those who are currently enrolled in school, keep up the great work!
