Education is essential

School is one of the most important things in a teenager’s life, even though it’s a lot of work. If you apply your abilities you may have the opportunities of earning a scholarship which is good for kids who can’t afford college on their own. With a good education you can get a successful career.

I’ve never really tried in school because I didn’t see the point. I missed many days, and didn’t study for tests. Once I got to high school I realized that if I want to reach my goals I would have to start caring about my grades and education.  My goal is to become a fashion designer, in order for that to happen I must have an associate’s or a bachelor’s degree.

Some kids think of school as a place to hang out with their friends, and others don’t even bother to go to class because they “weren’t feeling it.”

As Americans we take freedom of education for granted. If you want to have a good life then you have to start with a good education.
