School forms an important part of everyone’s life. In this 21st century, the education system has rapidly changed and now students eagerly wait to learn new things. Not only students but parents too are demanding an education system that works for and with them. So I am of the opinion that students should be required to stay in school until the age of eighteen.
Some studies suggest that our brain absorbs information more readily at a younger age than at older age. By the age of 4, a child’s brain is more than twice as active as an adult’s. For example: If a child learns a new instrument and then remain out of touch with that instrument for 10 years or so. Then also he can play it much better than an adult beginner. This shows how active a child’s mind is then an adult.
During school days we learn new things, new languages and almost all the good things that gonna help us throughout our life. The path to a disciplined life is laid first in the school. Also along with other mates, a child learns much faster and better so to be in school until the age of 18 is a perfect time to lay the foundation for a brighter future and be a good human being.
Secondly, a child learns major lessons of his life in school like self-control, honesty, kindness, duty so it’s very important that he/she is subject to such lessons at an early age. School-life prepares us for the life outside our comfort zone. Not only school makes a child learn the basic skills of reading and writing but also makes him learn basic topics that will be required to absorb specialized skills further in his/her career. For example, arithmetic rules are important to move on to the more complex topic of integration and derivation. A student is required to absorb all the basic information for higher studies until he/she turns eighteen.
Some people might not agree with my stand as they see many flaws in the education system. For the reasons stated above, I feel that students should be required to stay in school until the age of eighteen. [360 words]
