Once I traveled to the countryside I looked through the bus’s window I saw some houses are big and the others are small. When I asked those people who live in the big houses that did you send your children to school? All of them gave me the same answer is yes. When I asked those live in the small houses the same question. Only some of them send their children to school. Then I asked the second question that why did you send your children to school? Those who sent their children to school answered that because they wanted their children to have good future.
From these answers to my questions above, I ask myself, “Why many people send their children to school in the expectation for the good future of their children?” You may have the same doubt as I am.
In my opinion, most people go to school in the expectation for better future. Many rich families send their children to expensive schools in return for good quality of education and bright future for their kids. They dare to spend thousands of dollars to pay for the school fee. Why? Isn’t it knowledge important?
Yes, knowledge is very important. It provides you good future, a lot of money, big houses, expensive cars, and a sweet family. These are common goals for most people. Why not try to study? Instead of watching TV 4 hours a day, you should watch only 1 hour and spend other 3 hours in reading, doing exercises or writing essays. These activities will help you sharpen your knowledge after school.
