It will depend on the learning that you are willing to undergo. A lot of students in the past may have failed in school but were able to get their life back on track once they are outside school. There are just many people who are not made for the confining walls and rules of schools.

Some are better off being online students because they can learn while controlling the things that they want to do. Gone are the days when the only way that people can learn is by going to an actual school. Schools right now recognize that there are some students who can learn better online, and they offer what people may need for that.

I love to code. I believe everything is programmed in a certain way to make it work. From human brains to every single command in the machines.

William Blake wrote the poem "The Schoolboy." In this work, he compared being at school on a beautiful summer day the same as being trapped in a cage. In the second paragraph of the poem, Blake starts to talk about school and how it drives all the joy away.

Blake was an English poet who was also a painter and printmaker. His famous poem is held in high regard, as it expresses true sentiment and creativity. The poem itself is depicted from the perspective of the young boy who hates going to school in a "disciplined way." His purest wish is to be free like the birds and fly off on a summer day.
