For anybody that's out of school, do you miss school? Or are you just glad you're finally over all that work and homework?

Like most things in life, there are pros and cons to school.

If you think working hard at school sucks, you're in for a nasty surprise. Working in the "real world" is probably more challenging, and depending on your job...sometimes a lot less pleasant.

There's also a lot more pressure once you're out of school.

If you screw up at school, you might end up failing a test or retaking a class at worst. In real life, you'll have to work hard just to keep up with paying the bills, keeping a roof over your head, and a bunch of other things you take for granted at school.

Also, school is one of the few times when you get to hang out with 40 or more of your peers, sharing jokes, having fun etc...

When you grow up, there are far fewer opportunities to bond with people in that way.

On the plus side, leaving school means a lot more freedom. You get to stay up eating ice-cream and watching Netflix all night.

There are also a bunch of adventures you can go on, rewarding things you can do, interesting places to see.

But remember, working hard in school is a great way to set yourself up for a more successful grown-up life!

I enjoyed my primary years more than secondary/high school. Although I loved my sports throughout all years. I'm 40 and I still have dreams where I haven't completed my homework and I wake up and think "Whew, it's not real and I never have to do homework EVER again!" Instead I get to meet my bills. So the nightmare of homework definitely had an effect, my teachers use to single you out and humiliate you infront of the class. 

There is a programme on TV at the moment, British schooling v Chinese. Some teachers came to Britain to set up Chinese schooling with a class of over 50 students for 3 weeks as a competition to see which is best. They have a 12 hour day, starting at 7am and ending at 7pm. The results are in tomorrows final episode.

I graduated in 2012, and yes, I miss school. I really do. I guess after 12+ years of going through the same routine really does hit you.

By "out of school" ... If you mean "graduated" ... That means they have to work harder.  Possibly even going to school for more education, while working a full-time job.
