I believe that education is very important for a kid whether it be at a public school or private. Private schools may seem to always have the better educating system but it’s what you make of it. If you’re stuck going to a public school it doesn’t mean you’re getting the worse education, if you treat it like you’re somewhere else and actually care about it and do the work and get good grades you can make it into whatever you want it to be. It’s what you make of it, if you slack off in school and don’t care about it then you’re not going to do good because you have an attitude of dislike towards it. If you work hard and put a 100% into your school work then you can end up doing well in school and being able to go to college.

I believe that school is what you make of it. If you hate school and everything about it then you’re not going to do good even if you claim to be trying your hardest, the amount of work and effort you really put into it usually shows with the grades you receive at the end of each semester, year. Many kids though do not get the privilege to attend school and learn. Reasons may be pertained to money, time, or they live in a third world country where a select few get to go. School is a privilege and I believe that every kid that gets the chance to go needs to make the best out of it even if it is one of the most boring things that you can do with your day.
