Why do you need la before escuela when the English version doesn't have the before school? Seems la makes it specific to a certain school while the English version did not imply this.

English and Spanish are different languages. In English, it does make it specific, but in Spanish, it's just proper grammar

According to spanishdict.com, that's a polo shirt in Spain (and a t-shirt). The correction programming can be less than helpful, but until they get it fixed you can come to the discussion page to find the correct answer using the vocabulary that you're learning.

The la before escuela is not necessary. For school not for the school

The la is necessary. You need "para la escuela" to say "for school" correctly in Spanish.
