because it prepares children for the future. It teaches them what they need to know for when they are older. I know its not fun but its for the best of us.

Really?! What's wrong with American schools? Theres nothing wrong with American schools.
Report as
I think american schools and the children in them can do better.
Report as
I'm sorry, all of this is coming out wrong. Let me rephrase: I think american schools can do better, and they don't realize how much further our children can go.

I prepares them for life! Can you imagine what type of life people would have with no education? Not knowing how to read, write, count or any of the things that are taught in school.. It's very important!

Excuse me, but I think you are confusing SCHOOLING and EDUCATION. What someone receives in a modern school cannot surely be called a satisfying education? If people did not attend school, they would learn to do things like reading, writing, counting etc. at their own pace, in a more satisfying and enjoyable way and at their own pace, not when it is shoved down their throats by 'teachers'. They would learn it naturally, just as you or me learned to walk or talk, in themselves much more difficult tasks than learning to count or to read!

Because you get an awesome feeling when you know something! I mean seriously, who wouldn't want to brag sometimes? Learning things in school can help you achieve that. Also, you get a chance to meet people your age and build long lasting relationships with them. It helps you prepare for college and your job.

To help children know some basic units needed for a job, it prepares us for the real world. I know some stuff like science and social studies might not help, but there are plenty of jobs that includes the use of this knowledge. If you didn't go to school who would build phones or other electronics and stuff that pleasure you. We wouldmt wnt 2 tlk like tis wood we? Yea, science also helps with building roller coasters! Love them! Excuse my bad grammar just giving an example. I just don't get the point of the long tests they give us.

But school isn't good! It tears children away from the learning they have done since birth, places them in a institution where they are bored into memorizing mostly useless facts, and teaches them to hate learning! Before school, young children look forward to learning about new things, and actually learn much harder thing BY THEMSELVES than they would ever learn in school. Did someone teach you to walk and talk, the two hardest things you will ever learn? No! You learnt it by experimenting, picking up on your mistakes, and correcting them! In school, if you make a mistake, your 'teachers' and peers will ridicule you for it. Outside of school, if you make a mistake, you can learn from it and thus improve your understanding of it!

Some jobs require you to have diplomas as prerequisites. So do higher levels of schools. You can be doctors, lawyers, etc. But then, not every job need schooling. http://www.school-survival.net/successful_dropouts.php.
