High school might seem like a waste of time to young people. In part, they are right - of the 7 hours spent each day in a chair at Boredom High, 5 of those hours may indeed be a waste. However, the knowledge and experience gained in the two hours of usefulness are invaluable. Additionally, the benefit of finishing something tedious and difficult stays with a person all his or her life. We’re into instant gratification today, and four years of high school are neither instant nor necessarily gratifying. However, just like wearing clothes or driving a car, having a high school degree is a basic requirement for the majority of American people. Without it, life is harder. This game is a great way to engage kids in thinking about why they should stay in boring old high school. – Kathryn H.
