Not sure how to answer this one, but I'll try... 1.) To learn to read & write. (Eg... ! At the end of a question and ? At the end of a statement.) 2.) Through education, a person becomes aware of the world, empowered and more able to choose a better future. (Eg... The welfare state of mind is self defeating cycle of ignorance and dependence.) 3.) To achieve the ability to listen and follow directions, observe rules & boundaries, and show enough self discipline to conform. (Eg... pretty much every convict in prison is there for being unable to these simple things.)
The importance of listening in school is that listening ensures better understanding and improves communication. To write a good essay for your assignment you should first gather the points, chose a good topic and then plan how to express your ideas. The first thing to have is an introduction that should be followed by a body and finally the conclusion.
