Paul’s Answer

I think there are several reasons that we go to school.

In a philosophical sense, it teaches us about how to avoid the societal mistakes we have made in the past, and trains us in the methods we will need in order to adapt to the challenges and changing technology of the future.

Think of school as a small example or a microcosm of American culture and society. When you go to a school you will encounter people from many different ethnicities, cultures, and family backgrounds. Where else will you get an education in these particular elements?
It helps teach you about other people and helps you to understand them and their opinions and points of view.

The school environment is also a training ground for life and future technology. I did not learn how to write properly, read a tax form, learn about finances, and utilize the internet or a computer, until I learned them at a school.

School is also a place where you will find mentors in life. People who will inspire you to reach for goals, and achieve things you may never even know about, if you did not attend or experience that environment. My history teacher inspired me to a career in public service, and I am sure if it was not for his amazing example, that I would never have achieved the
things that I attained in life.

Even if you choose a technical program or an occupational skill, the school is the place where you can achieve that goal, and obtain the training you will need to be successful in your future life and obtain the purpose you will require to attain your life goals.

So, there are many positive reasons why we need the school. It trains us about life, diversity, people, technical skills, and future trends we will need to become a great achiever and inspire the generations who will follow us.

Caitlyn’s Answer

We go to school to learn how to think - how to analyze - and how to find resources to problem solve, and how to apply creative thinking to problems. To do all this, our brains need exposure to different ways of thinking including algebra, languages, art projects and scientific research and ideas. Even if you never use any of these things again, you will have been taught points of view that improve intelligence and will make you more competent because your brain will continue to use the neuro-networks it created when you studied these areas.

Melody’s Answer

Excellent question Katelyn. Originally people did not go to school. They learned by doing tasks and activities with family and then would learn special skills by working for someone who did that job. Schools were started to make sure people could learn to read, write and do the math and also to teach the values of the group or country. As we started to make new things and develop, more schools were started to get people the skills or knowledge to work in the new areas. Children were later told to go to school and not work as much or at all.

Schools now serve to help with the same things as in the past, but also new things and the world around us.

That's a fantastic question! I remember feeling the same way when I graduated from high school. College truly broadens your horizons and allows you to explore the subjects that genuinely excite you and align with your passions. It's a transformative experience where you learn how various concepts can be applied to your pursuits in real life. Plus, mastering basic subjects like math and English will certainly serve as a strong foundation for success in any job. So, embrace the journey and remember that knowledge is power - it's all there, just waiting for you to discover and make your mark!

Brandon’s Answer

I think we all go to school for different reasons. For most of us it is to increase our knowledge within a specific field of study in order to find a profession within that field. For others it might be to fulfill a life long passion and want to use the knowledge to fulfill a dream. For many people, going to school can have different reasons and implications.
