school for succeeding in life?

Hi there! It is not Mrs. D. writing here. But one of her students in class 5 (grade 13). So, just to explain the topic I would like to condider today: students’ lives. In a broad sense: mainstream school for life?02obama.600

Today, guys, we are going to talk about Obama’s school life.
During an interview on a talk show called “The Real”, Michelle Obama talked about his man. Did you know that Barack Obama wasn’t a good student? She said that he didn’t do anything while he was attending High School. He only started being serious when he  went to Columbia University and met her. Michelle also underlined the fact that he wasn’t good at school because he didn’t have a dad. What a sad thing…
So guys, do you think school is important for succeeding in life? Can anyone succeed in life? What is personal success, anyway? Money? Public recognition?  Or something more and more valuable than that?
Is there perhaps a link between a person’s “psychological traits” and his/her success?
Let me help you here. Personally, I believe that the link between them exist, only strong and very determined people are supposed to succeed and doing big things in life.

And you, what is your point of view on the matter? What do you consider success in life? What are failures instead? And which role does school play in all this?
