In life do you even use lots of what you learn in school?... Or can we just research what we are interested in?...

Report as

Absolutely. What I learned from grade school to college I use everyday, in my dealings with different people, with finances, work, with human nature, in speaking different languages, with travel, even on ask. In fact, you earn the respect of strangers immediately depending on your college degree. I have learned where to look for answers, how to cope with life, help others, etc. School is one of the blessings God has given me. Finish your degree and you will see.

School gave me a very strong foundation for what I know. Since we never stop learning I think of it like a very strong and wide base for a mountain of accumulated knowledge.

Yes. You might not use the knowledge right away but you will. As you find yourself in various jobs and life situations you'll find the more well rounded your educational base is the better prepared you'll be.

so you mean in life?
do you mean "in life"???-- researching is basically what school teaches you how to do properly, but it also teaches you social skills and makes learning fun and interesting. and maybe most importantly, school will influence you to research and learn about things that you would normally not even think about.

You will be surprised later in life at how much stuff you thought was senseless will come in very handy to you. If fact, as you enter the workforce you will be amazed at how often you will say to yourself, "I sure wish I had paid more attention when we were studying that."

even though school seems dumb it does give you what you need. math is everywhere you read all the time history well now that one depends on the person i had a history teacher who got me interested in history. exercising (p.e.) is something we need to do to stay healthy. so what do you think?

When I was in basic, I colored better than most & stayed in the lines pretty good. When I was in shield & storm I brought shorts because I knew it would be hot, thanks geography class. From gym class I learned to tie my shoes before going out for a run. In shop I made a bellows-no real point there. My star trek lunch box was much cooler than the my 3 sons box.That's about all I learned, & used later in life.

It's not so much about what you learn. School is a training ground for your brain. It's like going to the gym for 12 years. You learn some things, forget others, and relearn some of them layer on, but the real important thing is that you strengthen your cognitive faculties. You never stop using your brain and having to learn new boring things in life. Wait until you have to pay taxes and when you own any property. You'll finally understand why you had to learn all that crap in school:)
