School. I’ve never really liked school. But I’ve never really hated it either. School can be fun, but it can also be the very opposite. There are many good things to be said about school, but there are also many bad things to be said about school as well. School is just full of pros and cons, goods and bads.
There are many pros, or good things about school, things that I like. One of these “pros” is having good, trustworthy friends that, if you did not attend school, would be very difficult to find. Another thing I like about school is that there’s always a club to be in, or an activity to go to like a football game or a dance. And probably the most important (and probably the least popular) is your education because a good education will help you to become successful in life. You could become rich, or famous, or both, if you just use the education you acquire at school to its limits.
I also believe that there are many cons, or things I don’t like, that go along with the pros. One of these cons is the large amount of homework that is ever-present. There’s just too much to do all the time, what with the homework, and with after-school activities. Another con I have is the teachers. They all have teaching methods that are so different from each other that it’s hard to keep up with them! My next con is the rules. Rules are like a pathway; if you stray off just a little, you’ve broken a rule, and that happens all the time.
Though there are many cons for school, I believe that the pros outweigh the cons and we should just take the good with the bad. And again, school is just full of pros and cons, goods and bads.
