You dont really mean to ask this do you?? I suppose to educate you as to why you should be in school. Try to find a decent job without a good education. Try to have a decent conversation without education. Try to NOT live in the gutter without a decent education.
I wonder this myself. I agree with cinderella. Isn't everything you'd want to know on the internet? Teach kids how to read, spell and use the computer, then they can get the education they need instead of learning crap that you'll never use after graduation. Also look at the tax money that could go to something more useful.
Without an education you can't do much, unless you are lucky enough to be talented in other ways. Although our system has been in a steady decline, it does serve a purpose. It keeps children off of the streets, at least during daytime. Most families today can't make it on 1 income, so that leaves kids to fend for themselves. So it does put you in a learning environment in relative safety & your whereabouts are normally known-so it is a babysitting system
