Why Do We Have to Go to School? free pdf "Why Do We Have to Go to School?" is a 10,000 word fictional dialogue between a young man and his father. A fascinating debate evolves after the son asks, "Dad, why do we have to go to school?" This lively and captivating conversation serves as a thought-provoking discussion on the current status of educational policy and practice - specifically, regarding the use and role of technology in the classroom. It is beautifully decorated with related icons and word blocks. This artistic touch shows how books have evolved with technology, which closely parallels one of the themes from the dialogue. The images appear in color in the e-book edition and in black-and-white in the paperback edition. SON: Dad, why do we have to go to school? FATHER: Son, you need to learn valuable skills, like the three R's. SON: What's the third R? I can think of A-R-E, as in, "Are you going to let me stay home?" and O-U-R, as in, "Our time is being wasted in school." FATHER: No, Son, you misunderstood. The three R's are reading, writing, and arithmetic. SON: Why do they call them the three R's? Two of those words don't even begin with an R. FATHER: Well, they do have an R in common. What would you call them? SON: War! FATHER: Now, Son, there's no reason to become so violent about it. SON: But, Dad, hear me out. W.A.R. stands for Writing, Arithmetic, and Reading.
