Does success at school means success in life?

First we have to give a wide definition of “a successful life” :-)

What does an average school obviously gives us?
What does a typical school fundamentally teaches?
What does life gives you that school cannot give us?

In our reflection, we may examine…
- Learning from others/learning by ourselves
- Creativity/conformism
- Careers/money
- Activity/passivity
- Focus on the past, present or future
- The societal goals of school
- Redeploy ideas/Generate them?
- Individuality/Group
- One way of thinking? An official knowledge?
- Does school give clues to happiness? Does it help to become a better human being?

To start reflecting, I suggest that you read those 2 interesting articles in English:
