As an adult, do you miss school?

I'm in my 50s, but sometimes I wish I could go back to school and learn new stuff and do assignments.

Part of that is because back in high school and college, personal computers were non-existent or not very functional.  Few had any sort of word processor and printer.  So assignments had to be written out with pen and paper or typed on a typewriter where changes were difficult to make and typos a pain to correct.

I'd love to be able to do those same assignments, but with modern computers to see how much easier it would be.

    I don't MISS school but would welcome the opportunity experience school again with my present knowledge and attitude. I would suck up every bit of knowledge and insight that was available.

    I didn't enjoy school and certainly didn't make the best of the good education that was available to me. It is only since leaving school that I have come to understand HOW to learn and the pleasure of expanding my knowledge and ability.

    Not a bit. I didn't like school. Going back for any school at all has never appealed to me. And I've learned lots of new stuff anyway.

    Yes, I’m 25 and I find myself missing high school quite often. Those really were the best years.
