Often kids are forced to do assignments and homework and tests, and study things they do not choose to study that society has pushed on them. Some of the results of this are sleep deprivation, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, even suicide. Forcing kids also prevents them from following their passions if they are not core-related. If you ask anybody they will tell you they have favorite subjects and activities, as well as ones they don’t enjoy, and sometimes it’s also about teachers’ personalities and the fact that they get to teach you the way they want to teach you and not the way that you want to learn. There is no benefit forcing someone to learn what they don’t want to, because they are going to focus on the things they do want to learn, and if they don’t need or want to know it they will forget it anyway, so what is the point? Human rights are human rights whether you are young or old. Adults are not forced to learn against their will. Young people should not be forced either.
