So much is wrong with this picture. I wonder if anyone realizes how easy school is, and that 90% of people who complain about it just don't like homework and not getting to be lazy. SOMEBODY has to teach you history/math/english and so on. If everybody were left to their own devices our society would be even stupider then it is, and we're already doing pretty ******* bad. Sure, I hated homework, and getting up early, but it was easy. I left with a **** ton of useful information, that I'm going to use SOMEDAY. maybe not frequently, but ******* someday. The point of school is education for the masses, so that everybody has the necessary resources to ******* function. Most of the time in school the teachers spend giving you the ability to breeze through tests, which I did, because it was ******* easy. One day, when you're responsible for your own bills, rent/house payments, and the only regularity you have in your life is having to go to work or maybe college, you'll realize that being in school, for the same amount of hours on the same days of every week, with few responsibilities and somebody else feeding you and paying your utilities was easy. Now to wait for my red thumbs for being rational.

Because you can learn how to do everything necessary to society by going out and playing outside all day!

i take some offence to this(i know its not directed solely at me, but still), for i am a teacher, and i try to make my class as fun and laid back as possible, within reason. every morning, when i go into my classroom, i go on this site, find some funny OC, and attempt to draw it on my board. when a student asks where is it from, i tell them, and when imm done teaching, i show them. i allow people to draw in my class. i allow profanity in my class.. i allow most forms of self expression in my class. yes, profanity is a form of self expression, within the right context. i allow peoples opinions to be heard and spoken freely.
TL ; DR- im a great ******* teacher

I don't think this is the problem... I mean look back to the 1960's. They were far more strict in the classrooms and it was unheard of to encourage creativity and free thinking. Yet back then, students scored far higher on tests and society functioned smoothly. There's a serious problem with this generation's sense of entitlement. I believe the problem starts at home, not at schools.

American middle schools:
Telling kids to "follow their dreams" and that they can "be what they want to be" while at the same time making the kids who want to pursue a career in music take the same ******** music class as the kids who don't know **** about music. (music is just an example that I can relate to)

Telling kids that they are all "special in their own different ways" while at the same time picking favorites and giving undeserved bad grades to anyone who isn't one of the predetermined favorites.

Still telling kids to "follow your dreams" and "if you work hard enough at it you can be whatever you want to be" while at the same time giving homework which takes up all your time on weekdays and some of the weekend so that not only can you not "follow your dreams" in school, you have no time to "work hard enough at it" even outside of school.

An anon put it quite nicely in comment #212:
"Our entire system at achool is a facade. After primary school its basically just trivia questions to keep us busy. There is no purpose for me to know that Kilimanjaro is 3 962 meters high. To fact that I know this, tells nothing about my intelligence, it only tells about my ability to learn. There is no purpose to this fact, yet this is what goes on tests."

For anyone who's going to say "you only think that because you got bad grades" I got straight a's every report card every year since first grade and have been going to a private school since sixth.

Think we and our parents (probably bad grammer) work our entire life up until the age of 17/18 to learn, but the knowledge never stays. Ask your parents a question from middle school and they probably won't know, some may though. Not to mention that little piece of paper you get or "diploma" means so much, even though it is a lie. And lets say you grow up to be a lumberjack in a tree service, did you ever need to know chemistry, geometry, history, or algebra to know how to swing an axe. not saying you should drop out but this system is not perfect.

Please correct me. if not T ******* L ******* ; D ******* R.
