Why is it 학교를 and not 학교에/학교로?

Both are correct and synonymous. With 가다 or 오다, 을/를 can be used for emphasis. However, a space is missing between 안 and 가요, so I fixed it. We are sorry for the confusion.

Go to school:

학교를 가다 ~ attend school (purpose: school, to get an education)

학교에 가다 ~ commute/travel to school (destination: school)

학교로 가다 ~ head towards school (direction: school. School might not be the final destination).

So both 를 and 에 are fine

Shouldn't it be 학교에... 학교로...

Doesn't 가끔 mean often?
