Aiste, 15, Lithuania

The theme ‘education’ is very popular nowadays. Every day we ask ourselves about how and what we should learn in the future. I think that the most important aims for us are to develop our skills, general knowledge, learn how to communicate and collaborate. To be a real member of the society, a person needs not only theoretical, but also practical knowledge which he/she should get at school. We should give more attention to practice than to theory, because that is what we need in life. We also need lessons about different problems the world has to face, about cultures of other nations. This helps us to better understand and analyse our past, present and future. School shouldn’t be only the preparation for life. School has to be life.
