During my senior year of high school, we had to give oral reports in our Gov't&Economics class. This girl gets up in front of the class. For a little back story, she's the one that argued with the teacher that the U.S. was an island because it's surrounded by water. When he reminded her of Mexico and Canada, she told him that the whole thing was an island. Refused to hear the word "hemisphere".

Anyway, she's in front of the class, and mentions Arkansas. She pronounces it, as a high school senior, "Ar-Can-Sus".
Teacher: "It's 'Ar-Can-Saw'."
Her: "Well, that's just how I pronounce it."
Teacher: "Well you pronounce it wrong, Perla. You're an idiot. Sit down"

I don't understand the problems people go through in reading and writing. I don't find it difficult at all. Reading is just reading. And writing is super simple, especially if the topic is something I know about. And then it's just arranging your argument into neat paragraphs. I was in World Literature and English III AP.  
I'm not trying to brag or anything, I just ponder what makes this stuff difficult to some people. If it was Calculus and stuff I would understand, but it just confuses me. I feel like I am the only person in my class that actually listens to the teachers and does the work. Instead of talking all day and browsing the internet on my phone like others. It especially get's on my nerves when they complain about the difficulty of the work. Bitch, if you'd 						*******					 listen for 5 minutes, maybe it would be easier to understand. Honestly, I go to a mixed school, which is 85% Hispanic. We only have one teacher in each class and 30 kids or more per class. I'd usually finish my work so fast (usually because the teacher has to dumb down the work for everyone else) that the teacher would sometimes ask me to explain 						****					 to people, which I have no problem with, but when I have to explain the concept of how the Earth rotates around the sun and not the other way round (This actually happened, dumb duck-faced bitch) I die a little inside.  Sometimes the work (especially in Contemporary American History) we would get a study book, a sheep of paper with 10 questions, the chapter we need to look at, and a pencil. ALL of the answers, and I mean all of them, are printed clear as day in the book, sometimes even as Chapter/Section titles. Sounds easy, right? Apparently not, since some people can't finish it in 45 minutes, and do it for homework, except not because they are lazy 						*******					 that can't spend 3 minutes learning.  
TL;DR People in my school are retarded and cannot complete the simplest of work, and it's their fault for not paying attention.

One day in science class, the dumbest bitch of all time, who once got 1- ******** % in a maths test, was asked "Name a plant that produces asexually through the formation of a runner. I whispered in her ear "St. Patrick's Day" and the stupid idiot, with all of the confidence in the world said St Patrick's Day.
What has become of the world. :(

I wonder if they could read something as simple as this.

I swear clever people are attracted to these areas of the internet. No meaning to insinuate that I'm clever ;_;
But seriously: I read a whole Shakespearean monologue (the one where Ariel describes some stuff about leading some people somewhere) without fault, first try, in front of my entire class. In 6th grade.
And most of my friends could easily do the same, except Mike, he's a ******* retard.

Yeah I know that feel, I'm in Grade 10 too and I swear me and my friend are the only ones in our classes that can perfectly pronounce easy words like that -.-

lol. I know what you mean dude. In my english class, we were studying Romeo and Juliet. The teacher had set aside a 6 month period for the whole play, watch the movie (with Leonardo DiCaprio) and final project..... only 5 months was supposed to be on the actual BOOK portion.

Instead however, Every student who got As and Bs in the class spent 3 months learning how to properly speak Shakespearean and the students who got Cs Ds and Fs were sitting and laughing their asses off at the so called "Smart" students struggle with something we learned in about 2 weeks. Even the guy who lived in the run down city next to our school's town, who is quite litterally close to being retarded due to lack of proper education, learned faster than them -.-'

The laughing stopped when we were reading about 60 pages each night to compensate for the ********* .....

What I really hate about people reading out loud in class
is their inability to pause at commas and periods,
and how they just ignore punctuation all together.

Everything just sounds like one big mash-up ************ .
