Schools are the second most important place for a child after house. They have a great impact on what a child becomes into. However, some people believe that in present times, the main focus of schools is to turn their students into excellent civilians or employees of the country rather than nurturing their individualism. Although schools are for learning the various aspects of the society, I believe that it depends on more on the individual, how they can turn the situations around for themselves.
Schools are a very important part of our society and impart knowledge to the students. However, people believe that they have simply turned to a place where a child learns how to fit in the society. Firstly, the schools teach discipline which in turn makes children into effective workers. It is also taught to children what is right and wrong i.e. what is assumed to be right or wrong by the society in general. Even more, schools instill the cultural values that are shared by the society. The methodology adapted by schools brings into minds of the students the different ways by which a person can succeed in the job market.
On the other hand, few people are of the opinion that students learn individualism in schools. A school helps children discover their potential. To illustrate, a school organizes various cultural events like painting,dancing, singing or writing. There are even several sports that are played. A child who participates in different functions get to know that their innermost potential. Secondly, after a certain age, a child is allowed to choose the subjects they like, this in turn helps them be prepared for the future. Thirdly, a child through school gets to know the environment in which they live in.
Overall, a school is just a medium of imparting knowledge. It depends on the individual as well other factors such as the environment of the country or the house, which decides the way a child grabs the different education conveyed.
