Well no **** . Cheating is nearly better and more rewarding than actually doing your homework/studying. Unless you got a sense of guilt for cheating (which i don't got).

Studying a subject you got no interest off is off no use, i think most of us can relate.

I had to cheat my way through a Spanish class once.
I got through two years of Spanish and couldn't even ask for a glass of water if my life depended on it.
I accidentally added it onto a resume and had to be the bilingual translator for our company for a half year

I cheated in 2 of my exams because they placed me in the wrong class and refused to allow me to change it.

Our school system is not broken.

What is broken is society. Morality and a sense of right and wrong.

In high school, I could never understand it. Kids said all the time " I dun gif a fuc." When I finally understood the pidgin english, I realized they didn't care.

I am not spectacular, I worked hard in school, I got good grades. I knew it would pay off in the future, I felt a sense of accomplishment when I got an 'A' on a class, or made the honor roll.

The only ******* difference from me and these ******** kids, is I had a parent who tried.
Who raised me as a friend, but not to a point where I was out of control. There was a mutual respect. And in that, I was taught the right morals and values, and to respect others.

This is not the case for most of my peers. Parents don't think it's their responsibility to teach their kids. Some parents shout and curse and fight around their kids. One could only look at a recent .gif that made it to the front page of a young mother literally throwing her baby so she could go ' **** some bitch up.' Society is degrading. Morality is dead.

Don't blame the ******* system that janteel and shaniqua don'twant to learn algebra. I went through the system, I turned out fine. Everyone could do what I did, try as hard as I tried, if these kids were actually taught the value of hard work and respect by their parents. Instead, they're taught the value of some dank kush, nikes and "cred."

Sex is sensationalized, young mothers are made, and it gets worse. You think kids are bad now? Just ******* wait. 10 years from now you'll want to slit your ******* wrists over how disrespectful and goddamned stupid these little ******* are.

You've probably seen the swaglets by now. Well, that's just the ******* beginning. People who actually give a **** are dying, the government is subsidizing stupidity and laziness. Throwing more money at the problem won't work, either, unless you decide to give a pinch of weed for every A.

you know how ******** school is?
I have a heart condition so i can't participate in gym righT?
they excused me from it and gave me a credit.
But i was still supposed to attend, so basically i'd show up to gym fully dressed (not in gym clothes) and sit there like a **** head.
bad, right?

Now get this
next year, i'm taking drivers ED. two weeks into it, they pull me out of it.
why? because i didn't complete GYM.
Even after i explained the situation they wouldn't let me take it.

High school is the biggest waste of time. Run by idiots, for idiots.

Kids spend more time trying to memorize **** in a small interval of time worrying about upcoming grades, rather than being interested into the material they're learning.

I'm preeeeeetty sure just about every country's students cheat on tests.

Does this mean that all of the country's education systems are broken?

Because I think it's just kids being kids.

Also in a manner of speaking, adults kinda "Cheat" at their job as well, like slacking off and stuff

When I went to school it was impossible to cheat. Most tests were open book to encourage you to find the information also we had to take notes during lectures and received a grade for those. At the end of the semester we were individually tested one on one with the teacher with a verbal test, your basic paper test, and also you had to solve one very complicated question that was about 10% of your grade. The only down side is that you could get out of truancy by getting your GED. I had to do this and passed within two weeks at the age of 17. We had a law pass about six years ago that you could not drop out unless you are an adult (18). I never found an issue with the school system being flawed not even after No Child Left Behind. We had a choice in high school to take things that you would enjoy and pay attention to like more specific biology/ science, math, English, second language, physical education, arts, history, and even military related classes.

TL;DR school is good don't drop out.
User avatar #96 to #84 - thegirlyoudespise (10/15/2013) [-]
where i live you can drop out at 16 or in some cases, you just being a sophomore

Teachers dont care if you take notes, just as long as they put out the information
we're all tested at the same time, same test, no one on one connection

interesting to see how places differ when it comes to education

Honestly, that **** might have been acceptable in high school. But in college, I often find myself studying information over and over so that I can try to actually learn it and be able to articulate it. For example, In my Philosophy class, I stayed up nights trying to read about existentialism, Stoicism, Quine's Web of Belief, Albert Camus, etc. Because It wasn't enough to just remember definitions, I wanted to understand the concepts. One night I believe that I actually managed to crack the surface of understanding philosophical concepts.. but it could have been the lack of sleep.

Too bad that it has been 2 years since my last philosophy class and I can't really remember concepts in depth.

I still think schooling after 8th grade should be optional
User avatar #273 to #254 - Sethorein (10/16/2013) [-]
That's a bit much... at 14 you're still pretty juvenile and you're smack in the middle of a sensitive period for mental plasticity. It'd be a waste not to utilize that time and to just shove people into the work force.

I'd have high school teach more practical skills like doing your taxes and more emphasis on civics courses though. Not everyone is going to need higher order math but everyone needs to know their basic rights and how to pay their taxes....

rant below
American high schools are set up in a kind of way that caters to people who aren't as smart, and doesn't let people specialize in what they are good at. You need a certain amount of credits for every class. Now, hear me out here, but i think the kid should get more a choice on what he wants to do. If he's in 11th grade and doesn't think he's going to be a biologist he should be able to take an extra class dealing what he is good with instead of taking a class that he is terrible at and will never use. Kids (at least ones that show that they are responsible enough) should get more freedom with school and be allowed more flexible schedules. I have been on both ends of grades. I went my freshman year getting absolute **** grades because of some personal stuff i was going through, then the next year i got all A's and B's. But I honestly didn't feel like i accomplished anything. Grades are a really terrible way to judge how intelligent a student does, the only thing grades really measure is how well a kid can do a task that the teacher has set out for them. Yes, that also means that the kid is motivated and all that **** . But a kid could grow up getting good grades and still have no idea what he is doing with his life after highschool.

TL;DR School is hellagay and needs to be switched up a bit

"creative, non-traditional, lateral, mold-breaking answer acquisition." Cliche, perhaps, but if I saw a student show me a NEW way to cheat, I might let it fly.
