Anger is one of the basic emotions and all of us experience it in certain situations. From an evolutionary perspective, anger has been given to people in order to survive. If something negative happens in a person’s life, it usually irritates him. Anger is a normal reaction in such situations. It helps to resist them and facilitates their solution. It always helps to prove one’s point or to say “no” when it is necessary. Anger is considered as an irritation of secondary or higher degree. Unfortunately, it can result in rage, or even violence. Everything depends on the person, situation and the ability to control negative feelings.
Initially, this emotion was not considered as negative. But today it is one of the most frowned upon emotions in society. We are forced to avoid any manifestation of anger. As a result, the problem often remains unsolved. In fact, anger is a very positive feeling.

In the modern world education is not just a requirement and moral value, but also an expensive market product. One of the major characteristics of modern education is the directly proportional relationship between the age of educational institution and its value. While other market products value innovation and complete change and modernization of the portfolio, education values proposition based on the conservative and tested system that is checked and evaluated through years.
