There are many different opinions on what school is for. Some say it is to learn the academics, others believe school's also teach social and civic responsibilities.. In my opinion, school should be about raising a child who is not just a capable worker for the GDP, but one who is a fundamental requirement to society. Schools need to be facilitating the full development of young children to a young adult; raising people who are vocal enough to question the unquestionable, creative enough to imagine the unimaginable, resourceful enough to answer their own questions, and radical enough to believe they can change the world for the better.
