What The Learn in School

"What They Learn in School" was one of the poems that I liked the most. The main purpose of this poem is to give all the kids the right message that many might have not gotten. The author clearly states what is right and what is wrong for the kids. By all the messages the author gives in the poem tells the readers how much he cares for the kids and how much success he wants kids to get in their future.

I loved this poem mainly because of the messages he wanted to get across by his lines in the poem.

And they mainly want to teach them not to question, not to challenge, not to imagine, but to be obedient and behave well so that they can hold them forever as children to their bosoms as the second millennium lunches towards its panicky close.

This is one of my favorite lines from the poem because it teaches the children a life lesson. Not to question the elders is a life-lesson for the kids. This stanza shows that he wants children to have the best future.
