I honestly believe that a good education is vital to everyday life. Education is like the key that unlocks the world. If you pay attention in school now, it will make a world of difference later in life. Sometimes, you may wonder, "Why would I need this?" Other times, you may wonder, "Where would I even use this?" You may not realize it, but your school would never teach you something that would go to waste in the future. Schools always have their reasons for their curriculum. Also, you may think school is just unnecessary because you don't necessarily want a career in education. Therefore, you don't feel the need to pay attention during class. But this is not true. Where would you learn to become a chef? Where would you be able to come an engineer? It all starts in school. And if you don't focus and strive for excellence now, reaching your goals will be a lot more difficult.
