Why are there school?

Now, before saying that this person is stupid, please consider the following:

  1. The original poster of this question may be learning English as a 2nd, or even 3rd, language.
  2. The original poster may be a young child.
  3. The original poster may have made 2 "typos".
  4. The original poster may have some sort of mental handicap.

Now, as for the answer:

School is to help people learn. It helps people learn reading, math, and more. All of these help people later. For example, it's hard to get a job unless you can read and write.
