We all have a school life didn't we? Doesn't we all are said "You are reading in the best school........."
but there we are tortured at the point to lose our Self-Confidence by just being Grade as fool's?
Is School to make us a Good personality or grade us?
If a school's said to be a place to worship,a temple so why does that temple cost's us?
It's practical why Does only big people with big money are successful?
why poor people are even not let in the school?

Whoa now, school's ain't a place of worship.

They aren't the only people, but the means to becoming so are easier. They get more of an "edge", per se, because of a well starting off point.

why poor people are even not let in the school?


Not sure how it is where you are, but if you are hoping for a good and cheap education, your worse off being middle class.

As for school's in general, I detest how the American education system is run. It's all about the grades and not the students. It also hinders creativity, and as Emp stated just pushes people along the system.

Here in Britain it's all about where your school comes on the exam league table, to the point where it's normal for inspectors to write most of their report based only on exam statistics, before they even go into the school.

in school they did not only teach you and for some reason because they are payed they also want you to be a real man to have idea to share knowledge to explore and to have experience they its a part of growing up so we are lucky because we go to school grad in college and have job unlike to other poor people around the globe who do not have any opportunity o go school

As mentioned the school is not a place of worship, nor where you get cast in a mould; it is, ideally, a place where not only you are being educated about diverse topics, but also where you meet many people your age and are confronted to situations you would not experience otherwise; you sometimes have to work with kids you don't like, you learn that way how to cope with certain situations.

Of course it is inevitable that by teaching kids you also teach them our culture, perpetuating it; but you cannot possibly reinvent our culture every generation, can you.

The poster is from India, hence I guess the figure of speech, also with regards to some of the other statements.

Not that it would make the argument any less confused and convoluted in my view, but...

19912, You could look around for free scholling systems to a greater or lesser degree (not free as in financially, but of the mind), while not that thick on the ground in India, I know there exist some. Where they don't exist, one could strive towards them

I don't know what this will do for you, but check for starters: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_democratic_schools#India . See also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_school , for possible inspiration if nothing else.

mold you say? Think again then why only people which have never gone to school are not respected if,
it is, ideally, a place where not only you are being educated about diverse topics, but also where you meet many people your age and are confronted to situations you would not experience

if it is a place to meet people just go out and ask someone.....

I'm not sure how schools are run in India, but schooling is necessary in order to learn your basic and advanced necessary skills to accomplish your life goals. The method by which schools achieve this can be argued, but that's a different thread. Schools are a necessity. Back in ancient Greece, they had schools, and depending on what you were going into, they were a lot tougher than they are now. (ex. Spartan children would get their bare backs flogged once a year to prove how tough they were.)
