Body 1: The advantages of schooling until the age of 18.
Ý 1: Acquire knowledge & be well-educated -> provide children with sufficient preparation -> easily get a job in the future.
Ý 2: Schools are small society -> children experience difficulties there -> become more mature.
Body 2: Not all students should stay at school until 18.
Ý 1: Some people have poor academic results -> should leave school and work instead.
Ý 2: Some children have an innate talent -> should attend proper training course -> nurture their ability and excel at it -> Example.
It is believed that all children under 18 years old should receive education. While I think that this policy exerts many positive effects, I hold the opinion that it is not suitable for all.
On the one hand, there are some advantages when under 18-year-olds attend school. Firstly, they will be well-educated because during this time, teachers impart broad knowledge to them, which will provide them with sufficient preparation for their future life. With qualifications and knowledge achieved after 18-year education, youngsters can easily land a decent job to cover their basic needs and increase the comfort of life. Secondly, this period increases their maturity before they lead their own life. In fact, schools are a small society but safer because of teachers’ support and schools’ discipline. Experiencing difficulties there for 18 years, students become more mature to live independently.
On the other hand, not all students should stay at school until 18 years old. The first exception is for those whose academic performance is too poor. Instead, they should be allowed to leave school and work manually for their living and support their parents. Another case is children with inborn talents who should enter a more suitable training course to nurture their innate ability rather than learn academic subjects. For example, a boy who is excellent at playing soccer should be trained to be a professional football player instead of learning until the age of 18.
In conclusion, albeit beneficial in terms of career prospect and mental growth of children, 18 – year education system should not be applied to students who always lag behind other classmates or have their own inborn aptitudes to develop into future jobs.
