Insert Social benefits of school There are many spillover benefits of the school culture, which are not directly taught by the teachers including the acquisition of an effective culture of teamwork from group-work in classes and tolerance of diverse ideas and positive behavior. The eventual social culture enables individuals who have successfully passed through the school system to; find and retain gainful employment in virtually any environment (having learned in an almost similar community); have functional families, and; be concerned and productive members of a society in the same way the school social culture demands of students. Specifically, the school culture molds individuals to refrain from and report antisocial behavior for action in a more practical way than is captured in the learning curriculum.
The school is one of the finest social environments where individuals learn social skills and emotional control through simple social interactions with one’s classmates, school mates, teachers and other support staffs. As such the school enables students to gauge and or develop their individual attitudes about themselves and or others in respect of prevailing social culture which is normally too comprehensive or complex to specify in the syllabus or school regulations. In addition, free-play and other games that do not require the input of teachers naturally molds individuals to associate with healthier social habits students learn from their peers. This in turn challenges and or compliments the largely theoretical culture of teaching which does not normally embrace the culture of experimenting and innovation. By being active citizens who really are concerned with productivity, the society will likely benefit from lesser burdens of containing antisocial behavior and the outcomes of such behavior which often weakens the social economy.
