Task: The teaching high school should be focused on the success of students in the workforce rather than in academics only. To what extent do you agree? My Ans: It is undeniable that education is a quintessential part in our life. Pedagogical experts have made a significant progress in the development of education systems. However, more emphasis should be placed on practical skills that are related inherently to the job market. It is agreed on this assertion and analysing the main reasons: job satisfaction and personal development of students will be discussed. To begin with, students engagement with practical activities is by far more important than academic achievements and results in job satisfaction. For instance, companies in Italy usually hire students who have involved in extracurricular activities especially internships. Those students are usually well paid and feel comfortable in the work environment. Conversely, those with only academic background usually are rejected by many companies, leading them to not being satisfied with their job. This shows that teaching practical lessons applied in the job market leads to job satisfaction. Furthermore, interpersonal skills of students are improved through teaching them practical trainings. For example, Saudi Arabia has changed its high school education system by adding two compulsory hours dedicated for the teaching of extracurricular activities related to the job market. This change has improved students performance in the work environment as been reported by many companies. It is clear that interpersonal communication skills of students are evolved adopting this teaching style. To sum up, academic achievement alone can never widen someone's horizon and lead to job satisfaction. Students engagement in practical internships in high schools should be promoted to foster interpersonal skills and empower our next generation to be successful in the job market. ******************************************** I am a non-native English speaker, I practice every day by writing an essay.
