    Question Corner: Schoolwork

    Some of my friends have stopped doing their homework or studying for tests. They just want to goof off. Sometimes I want to join them. Is school really worth the effort?

    Yes. School is for learning. It’s important to study how other people solved problems so that you can use it in life and learn how to solve your problems. Christ is our example. He studied and was a hard worker.

    Don’t goof off with them! School is worth it! First, you can get a better job by doing well in school. And second, you’ll be able to teach what you learn to your kids.

    School is definitely worth the effort! Education is super important, and it is one of the only things that we can take to heaven. So we need to take advantage of that and listen and study hard in school. Don’t join your friends!

    School is important because it will help prepare you for work one day and even everyday life as an adult.

    Even though it might not seem like it now, anything you stick to honestly and diligently will pay off in the end. Try leading by example. For the Strength of Youth says, “As you strive to live the gospel, you will encourage your friends to do likewise.”

    When we die, our knowledge from earth comes with us. Going to school lets us get our knowledge. Also, higher education will most likely help you get a good job so you can provide for a family. School goes a long way in heaven and on earth.
