Learning in general is very important. You start school when you're about five years old, and from there to your first year of high school most people are still learning. Once you hit high school, a majority of people will drop out each year.
Some people will drop out because they have really big issues going on in their life and being at school can add more stress to them. Others will stop going because they're not interested in the courses that they are made to take, and everyone else just says,
"It's just not for me".
I can relate to the dropping out because I wasn't really interested in the courses. That was two years ago. Last September, my grandmother had done some looking and found the CALA course. When she told me about it, I knew that my luck had changed. I was being given a second chance to better myself with education, to prepare me for a better job in the future.
Today I am currently still attending the CALA course, and it's giving me that push to strive for perfection. I have a five month old son and I know that since I am able to have education once again, I can get that good paying job so I can support him. If I didn't have this second chance, I'd be stuck working a dead-end job for the rest of my life, but knowing that I am going to school and I can do what's best in the future has really made me a much happier person.
The more education a person receives the more power they will have towards controlling what they want in life. As the saying goes:
"The teacher gives the test before they give the lesson," which really when you think about it, the real test in life is to see how far you are willing to go to be successful with your life, even if that means taking that step, going to school as an adult, and actually getting the happiness you were longing to have by graduating out of high school.
