School is highly inimportant. I'm highly smart due to my IQ, but for some reason my highschool refuses to graduate me when I passed all the required classes... School is just stupid and causes many problems. That's just my take. =)

Im the USA it seems to highly matter. I don't care about school personally. I've been to over 10 schools inteh USA and Canada. There is a huge difference in education. If you are smart enough to work, and do whatever you need in life, then why do you have to go to school? you can always teach yourself like I had to...

High School is very important for me. THis is the time of one's life where his career is shaped. and the time you spend in the high school is very educative. you not only learn about the subjects but a lot and this is the time of our life which we never forget, the friends we make in our school last a long time

Yes, you do make alot of friends, but for me personally, I didn't learn a thing in highschool. I learned most I needed to know before highschool.

I think at least high school is very important. There's a real ignorance about public vs private schools in the US. Most have this thought that private is better but it depends on the locale and the school system. Here, locally, our public systems often out rank the private ones. Unless you have big $ to pay for the top notch school, you are probably getting a lesser education than if you sent your kids to a public school. The only plus side to most private schools is that they tend to be less accepting to those who are trouble makers, but not always. Sometimes if you have the money you can get away with anything!

It is very important to finish school!! Most jobs requires you to finish high school nowadays in Canada. With technology and the advances in science, we need to educate ourselves more to keep up with the ever changing world.

It is very important to finish school. Because when you go for a job interview they will pass you over for somebody who has a degree or diploma. I think it makes a difference because the class sizes are smaller in a private school. So then the children get more attention.

Take it from someone who had quit high school in the past...school is very important if you want to get anywhere in life. I am currently going to take my GED. If you don't have at least high school life is very hard.

I think school is very important. I don't think it matters how you get an education, but that you have one. It's hard to obtain a job without that high school diploma.

Schooling is very important for everyperson. It is equally important to finish school. In these days when qualification is an important requisite in every field you will hardly be able to find a job without the required qualification and school is the place where you can start to realize all the dreams of your life. I dont find much of a difference between a public school and a private school.

school is very important so that you have the social abilities you will need later on in life as well as for learning how to do the things you will be using all through life so a good education is very important the mind learns everyday if you allow it to there is a lesson to learn every day it is up to you to figure out what the lesson is and learn from it.

school is very important because it will teach you more than academic things in life. you will be restoring yourself and find balance with your being because of the people you meet and the activities you do. i went to an exclusive/private school and it teaches more than the usual high school. it is more rigid more essential and authoritative.

Finishing school is very important. It doesn't matter how it is done. What does matter is what you do with the education. Not everyone learns the same or preforms better in the same environment. One should chose the career they enjoy and feel they are good at. How much do you find yourself using information you learned in school? I do think more should be done to teach an actual skill in school vice teaching history and things like that.

I think that it is very inportant to finish school. You can't get a job anywhere, even McDonalds anymore, without at least a high school diploma. I don't think there is a difference n public or private schools when it comes to education just because everyone has to pass the same state test to get threw school.
