People attend to school to get a basic academic education which allows them to get jobs, and also to learn their basic rights and how to use them. Children attend school to learn a basic degree of literacy in core academic subjects, such as reading and math. But, the value of education transcends classroom learning; it teaches students to interact with one another in a manner that ideally results in tolerance, respect and community building.
