    what's the point of school

    we go to school everyday and we don't get anything out of it.most of us try to get out of going to class by sitting in the office or pretending to be sick.the teachers are boring.some of us drop out.the only thing we can look forward to is coming home and being able to watch tv

    Well school is to get a education and to make us ready to go to college so that we can learn some of what we well be studying so its faster in college and we can then get a job faster.

    School is supposed to provide us with the knowledge we need so that we can become functioning members of society and make something of ourselves. I don’t really know how to put it more simply than that.

    I really don’t see what is so bad about school. Of course every school has its issues but they definitely benefit us all. If not for school providing our education, not many of us would be nearly as knowledgeable as we are now.

    Honestly, I don't see why you even need to question this.

    If it weren't for public education, not many would be able to read or write. If the majority of a population is illiterate, then movies, books, TV shows, video games, and yes, even anime, could never be scripted, or written. That means no Dr. Seuss, Harry Potter, Spiderman, Star Wars, Halo, or Lord of the Rings.

    You say you don't get anything out of it... Whuuuaat? I understand hating math and PE, but like your teachers probably say, we use math every day, and hopefully you employ some reading and writing skills every day —even if it's text messaging it's still writing—, comprehension skills... well, it seems that alarge majority of the youth don't use that, but— science is used every day —space shuttle, satelites, surgery— et cetera...

    If you really hate school that much, then you really, really, really must hate being in any sort of working society.

    No school, no advances in knowledge. No advances in knowledge, no advances in technology. It's practically living in the Dark Ages, for crying out loud...

    Re: what's the point of school

    I've been to college and don't regret it one bit. It might be hard to believe since my English is so bad. But I do not live in an English speaking country.

    You will not learn anything of value in High School, except for some math. Those strange things like calculating volumes will be handy trust me.
    And you learn to speak and write with style. There are a lot of hard language stuff that you can't read if you haven't gone to college. Like contracts.

    Of course going to college won't guarantee success. And a lot of high School drop outs are millionaires, and someone with a Masters degree from college might end up working for an idiot that never even finished high School.

    But the chances of success are 10 times higher if you have an education. The chances of getting even an construction Job is higher if you have gone to High School. A high school drop out might not even get the job.

    Re: what's the point of school

    It's obvious the point of school, as many have already pointed out to get an education. Good luck trying to get a job when you can't read, or know basics maths or even basic communication skills.

    Once your out of school for a few years, that's when it hits. You'll be wishing you'll be back in High School because of how easy it is compared to the rest of your life and all the worries that comes with being out of school XD but of course the up side is that you are now an 'adult' with freedom

    If you think that without an education you can have lots of things in the near future you are a messed up individual. The point of school is to get an education that will help you accomplish the things you have dream about since you were little.
