College vs High school

In today's society high school and college education have similarities and differences. Some examples are, between teachers and professors, social conversation with teachers and professors with students etc. Although high school teachers are similar to college professors, there are still differences. For example, expectations, attitude toward class, and interactiveness with class vary between college and high school.

A comparison between teachers and professors is that both are educators and are socially interactive with the students in the classroom. They both are direct and give their full efforts to teach in the classroom. In the classroom they show an equal amount of interest in each student and never have favoritism over anyone.

Although, high school teachers tend to care more about the students education and success and find that classroom interactiveness is important, where in college professors already expect you to have interactive skills and to be able to adapt to the new college environment.

Thirdly, high school and college are both excellent educational methods. They both teach the student body about life and how to get through it.

Education in both high school and college prepares us for the work world, which is the real world were there are no teachers at all.
