Spanish is the most common second language in the world and the most popular language taught in the United States schools. One reason it seems Spanish is the most popular second language, is over 20 countries claim it as their first language and over 400 million people speak it. More people on earth today speak two or more languages. With numbers like that it seems we all should learn a little bit of this popular language.
In high school I spent time in France after completing my required classes in French. Once I returned home I rarely ever spoke it again. I regret that I have lost that language. My son does attend preschool Spanish, but I will push to keep him exposed to the Spanish culture and language as he gets older so that doesn't happen to him.

They have to write endlessly on the board because they have to stop and change for different classes. They might have to do the same lesson over and over again for different students and this will mean drawing and writing the same thing over and over again.
Their life is very monotonous. Their legs and arms are probably aching. But, their workday doesn't end there. They will have to ...

These questions are focusing on the usefulness of education and learning to the learner and to the society. This is the subject of transfer of learning.
Parents send their children to school because they believe the school can transmit desirable attitudes, skills, knowledge, behaviors and attitudes to the children. The government funds public schools because it hopes that by so doing the society will have citizens that are productive and self reliant; that have a positive attitude to fellow citizens, public and private property, that will shun crime and live peacefully with others, and that can bring social progress.
Thus, parents, governments, teachers and citizens all believe that learning gained in school should be ...
