有些人觉得老师应当只关注(focus on)学术科目，这是老师的基本职责(fundamental responsibility)，比如幼儿园(nursery school)和小学的识字、算术、美术、音乐、体育；中学的外语、物理、化学、自然、生物、历史、地理；大学的各种专业知识(specialist knowledge)。但学生和老师相处时间长，除了学习学术科目，在为人处世方面也会潜移默化(unconsciously)地受老师影响(influence)。
所以，我认为老师也有责任教学生如何判断对错和行为得体，比如守时(punctual)是好习惯，而浪费是坏习惯；应当重视家庭，尊重长辈；应当相信工作，相信人，相信神(believe the God，西方人常见世界观之一)。这些做人方面的内容(How to be a qualified citizen)对学生在未来职业的帮助甚至超过专业知识。虽然孩子们也能从家长处或媒体上学到相关内容，但老师通常是主体。
Some people think that the main purpose of schools is to teach children to be a good citizen or worker rather than to benefit them as individuals. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
People attend college or university for many different reasons. Why do you think people attend college or university?
People attend colleges or universities for a lot of different reasons. I believe that the three most common reasons are to prepare for a career, to have new experiences, and to increase their knowledge of themselves and the world around them.(41words)
Career preparation is becoming more and more important to young people. For many, this is the primary reason to go to college. They know that the job market is competitive. At college, they can learn new skill for careers with a lot of opportunities. This means careers, such as information technology, are expected to need a large workforce in the coming years.(62 words)
Also, students go to colleges and universities to have new experiences. This often means having the opportunity to meet people different from those in their hometowns. For most students, going to college is the first time they have been away form home by themselves. In addition, this is the first time they have had to make decisions on their own. Making these decisions increases their knowledge of themselves.(68 words)
Besides looking for self-knowledge, people also attend a university or college to expand their knowledge in subjects they find interesting. For many, this will be their last chance for a long time to learn about something that does not relate to their career.(43 words)
I would recommend that people not be so focused on a career. Instead, they should go to college to have new experiences and learn about themselves and the world they live in. This may make them better prepared for their future.(41 words)
