While there may be elective courses students can choose, much of secondary school can feel more like an obligation or chore than a choice.
This may be due to the fact that many curriculums are pre-established, many classes are chosen for students and many assignments come with rigid guidelines that don’t leave much room for creativity.
Developing oneself in the above ways is extremely valuable, and higher education can help you do so.
This is perhaps the least-accepted reason, culturally, to pursue higher education.
It’s an educational circumstance that most of us push through because we know a high school diploma is important.
