It tells about what an ideal school is. An ideal school should be a place where a student learn how to overcome his/her uncomfortable zone and take their own decisions. This is what parents wish for their child. It is really important to have good control in academics but it is of no use if you don't know how to face undesired situations, not independent and there is lack of confidence which a student learns in an ideal school. Hence, the future seems to be meaningful if you give your best in present.
