Educators go through a rigorous application process, and every answer they submit is reviewed by our in-house editorial team. The 12-20 years that we spend in a classroom are only part of the learning process that begins the moment we are born and ends when we die.
And to some, who believe in a life after death, our learning continues on indefinitely.
Outside of all the things that previous posts have said, school teaches you how to get by in the world.
It teaches you how to deal with bosses (teachers) that you may or may not really like.
School prepares us to be the future caretakers of this planet when our parents are dead and gone, and it gives us the knowledge to pass on to our children and the future generation.
As such, we should appreciate the great gift we have when we're able to attend school.School introduces you to other points of view, which is necessary to learn tolerance and empathy.School provides you with exposure to diversity in culture and religion, something we also need to develop tolerance and empathy.Many go on to higher institutions for 2, 4, 6, or 8 years, getting rewarded with college degrees in preparation for their chosen careers. Throughout our lives we are constantly learning new things and will never stop learning new things.That is the importance of schools-to help prepare us to better live our lives. Our formal years of schooling may be over with, but the learning continues on until we die.Submissions must be received by [email protected] later than 5/31/19.Winners and their schools will be notified by June 11, 2019 to coordinate scholarship funding and for the schools to receive the Stop the Bleed Kits and Training.Some schools are more effective at helping with this than others.School also provides exposure to activities, ideas, and fields of knowledge that you might never encounter otherwise.School provides you with a formal structure that real life learning does not, and that structure helps you to learn self-discipline.One of my father's favorite sayings when we were growing up was, "School teaches you to do the things that have to be done, when they have to be done." The trick, in my opinion, is to internalize the lessons of school without losing one's creativity and joy in learning.
