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.

Trust me it's not uncommon. I once got a huge negative score for saying that "Too hot to do homework" is a bullcrap excuse for never doing it ever.

I graduated from high school a year ago, so I'm not far gone from what they are teaching right now. My little brother is also in high school and I talk to him about it all the time. I do not disagree with the cartoon, but I did mislead you, as I meant to say "post" not "picture" and I apologize for that. It's the posters false interpretation of the picture (see his title) that got me riled up, as it seemed to hint that he was just using the picture as an excuse to unify under the "school sucks" flag.

I don't think that was the point of the picture at all. What I got from it was that schools are placing far too much emphasis on students being able to pass tests, while not actually learning anything substantial, and also far less emphasis (even going so far as to cut spending from) the arts and other activities.

I'm really not referencing the picture. It's the posters annoying misinterpretation of the picture that makes me angry. Seems like if people see stuff like this they instantly unite under the "YEAH SCHOOL SUCKS" flag.

I agree that it was misleading. It was pretty much a brainderp, but what I meant by "picture" was "post", including the title and OP's interpretation. I apologize for that.

i think its implying to the fact that although testing the main subjects standards are high, too much of the budget is placed towards it, my personal secondary education music department was a ******* mess because, Music got no budget whatsoever we had nothing to use. its almost a sense to make the classroom colorful. i agree with you that there is nothing wrong with schools how they are, but the budget on the arts really does need improving.

THIS I can agree with. Schools these days seem to misplace budget a lot. Such as putting all their efforts into the sports programs, and taking from arts/choir/band programs and so on. It also wouldn't hurt to improve school utilities from time to time, like getting some more decent bathrooms.

I remember in my middle school, every other month we'd get a whole new batch of Mac Computers. Top of the line stuff. Now, if you go and look at our music department, we didn't have enough money to buy staples for the sheet music packets in choir, we didn't have enough for new strings for our instruments in the music class, we had 4 people to a keybored in music class and all the guitars we did have were all so badly beaten up, I remember one kid picking it up and the neck splitting down the fretbored. Please for the love of god, fund the music programs. Stop buying usless computers when we have 4 classrooms worth of 7 month old macs that we don't use anymore.

Our highschool was raising money for an asfault football field. the goal was one million dollars. It's been going on for about 6 years, and we've only raised about half of that. But every year, they cut the bus routes even more, they bring the price of food up by a dollar or so, and they add the price of football games. Now, our sister school wanted to buy an asfault field too. They paid about half of what we were paying at 400,000 dollars. Bull **** right?

Total ********. Seriously, we don't need that much ******* money for high school football. THIS is part of the reason we aren't getting enough kids educated.

You really know whats ****** up? 147 students in my brothers 8th grade class got ipad 2s instead of books. It ended up costing the school $2,000,000 for all the programs and ****. His school doesn't even have good instruments. they have 3 beat to **** guitars, and probably 10 keyboards.

these guys ever heard of a large open area called a field? One million dollars put towards making the ground a more annoying surface to fall over onto, when the money could be put to real things that matter in making a person who will go onto achieve something in his life.

I recently listened to an NPR report about this form of teaching in Japan. It's a huge problem for them now because while everyone can pass the tests, they are losing a large part of their creative thinking and problem solving skills.

But at the same time students are being pushed through the highschool system because they have athletic prowess. Some schools even go as far as allowing coaches to take the sat and act for their athletes. My college doesnt have very high requirements in the first place but people are getting in and expecting to not have to do homework. Just something ive noticed i went to highschool in Alaska and there isnt as much of a problem with that but there still is one

Well, My perspective is that school is equal to torture today. I DO NOT give a **** what happened back then. Sure! They had whips, rulers, and paddles, BUT DO NOT GIVE A **** ABOUT THAT. SCHOOL IS TORTURE TO ALL OF US. DOWN WITH EDUCAT- nah, i'm just kiddin, but I did hate school!

necessary? maybe to work for a corporation by learning how to do repetitive labor without question but to be a HUMAN you don't need to learn how to obey and stand and sit and listen on command, you need only to learn and the real world can provide that. lets use an obvious example, how is Algebra important to the function of society?

We have to learn the most important things in school so we can evolve our brains and later gain the knowledge for deep space exploration, when we're ready. It's either School, or become a forgotten extinct race, planet.

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

thanks. i appreciate that. people say teaching is a thankless job. i say ********, its thankless to teachers who cant control their class(students), and dont connect with the students. i do, for both. i dont yell often, but when i do, my students know to shut the **** up real quick(i have a deep voice, and can yell fairly loud). i also dont write students up if they misbehaive. its pointless. they get a free vacation. **** that. if i think a student deserves a writeup, i simply give them homework of a book report, 5 pages long, on a book they havent read. if they complete it, they were up all night, and they wont forget not to **** off in my class. if they dont, they get a zero, which will pull their grade down a letter roughly, and they have to work harder to counteract the zero. im a hardass when i need to be, but its not very often.
TL-DR-im still a great ******* teacher
