Why some schools have separate sections for education and employment?

Even though we have the resume attached...
Do we still have to put the extra-curicular activities, honors again on those sections?
Why do they ask us to do this? (I mean...they do check resume right?

They're looking at thousands of applications, so getting a standardized report of an applicant is usually easier to parse than looking at each resume to get its contents. It isn't that much work to list the contents of your resume one more time in the application. Besides, with online employment applications on the rise, get used to this because plenty of employers will require the same thing. It's for their convenience to read your application easily, and you should just respect it and give them everything they want to see in the way they want to see it.
