Why is school compulsory?
Surely, if we knew which lessons we wanted to do, we could be taught in greater depth about subjects we are interested in and not have to suffer through those that aren't. Those who don't want to go to school? They simply don't get a job (well, unless, they know how to get one or start their own business). Education should be readily available to those of any age, no matter what they've been through, but if someone doesn't want to learn, they'll make it impossible for those who do. Due to the greater depth of education, it is likely that there would be less homework, therefore less pressure on students and student-teacher bonds would be easier if the subject is one that is liked. Readily available education would be essential for all and due to the ability to renter it at any time it would provide a second chance for if your job choice change.
Parental pressure would be the main issue with the actual choosing of subject studying, as with old fashioned voting where people could force you to choose based on their opinions not yours, but generally, there may be a decline with stereotyping certain jobs and lessons for certain sexes.
Unfortunately, it would probably cause the homeless and unemployed numbers to rise due to recent generations being perceived as lazy as technology continually replaces manual labor. You could possibly solve this by raising children with a practical life goal to work, but then there would be a parental pressure as they would have to decide on the child's early lesson while they are too young to appreciate the education.
Of course this is more theoretical then practical. There are so many ways in which pure public attitude could bring an entire system to the ground, so this dream of compulsory schooling where I am not forced to exercise and can study English as long as I am awake will remain just that, a dream.
