"Why Do We Have to Go to School?" is first and foremost an entertaining, stimulating discussion between a witty teenager and his father. A lively and fascinating debate evolves after the son asks, "Dad, why do we have to go to school?" The father discovers that this isn't such an easy question to answer, as the son turns out to be well-prepared with clever ideas. Still, the father rises to the challenge, coming up with a series of good responses.

Just why do we have to go to school in this day and age where information is right at our fingertips?
