schools should be more like college, no need for class everyday and unbelievable amounts of redundant homework.

"When you get to college, the course load will be worse."
First day of biology class: "your grade will be based on these 4 tests and the final."
"Is that all?!"
"No, I'm also dropping your lowest test grade."

true ******* dat m8. A few days ago I had to buy a book for like 70 euros, which I will probably only be needing for one semester and then throw it away in the corner for the rest of the year.

70 Euros? I've got a class with not one but two $200+ textbooks.

Lots of people have it a lot harder probably, but I still cry ever tim.
User avatar #48 to #4 - zoologyexplain (09/04/2014) [-]
Ridiculously true.
A lot of people actually have a problem wit that though because they don't know how to study without assignment structure. I never understood that but whatevs.
#65 to #4 - John Cena (09/04/2014) [-]
Depends what classes you take. bio usually comes with a lab which takes an annoying amount of time (all our labs are 3 hours and then lab work on top of that). Language classes in college are a lot more rigorous in HS. Also it sounds like you went to an easy college(or at least one below your abilities) if those 4 tests didn't stress you the **** out.
User avatar #108 to #65 - lolollo (09/04/2014) [-]
Do you really believe the stress you feel in class determines its imporance? You're certain it's not the subject matter? It's purely how hard the tests were?

And finally, are you certain YOUR tests weren't stressful because you may have picked the wrong major?
#110 to #4 - John Cena (09/04/2014) [-]
its the same thing in my biology class too, BUT each test is based off 200 something pages of notes a month.
User avatar #102 to #4 - basicargentinian (09/04/2014) [-]
lel 4 tests....I have 2 and I can get out of the final with an average higher that 8/10.
#124 to #4 - LarsGoes (09/05/2014) [-]
kinda it's not about the number of tests but the difficulty of the tests themselves, isnt it?

mfw college is actually much harder than highscool because I'm not majoring in art.

I have to look forward to another 3 semesters of math involving Calc 3, Differential Equations, and Numerical methods.

Those are technically just Gen-Eds.

>be me
>learn cursive at an early age
>imprint that **** into my mind
I almost failed one of my history classes in high school because my dumbass teacher couldn't read cursive. It wasn't that I have ***** handwriting either, she was just ******* stupid.
>hfw trying to read my ****
>hfw I absolutely refused to attempt to write in print
User avatar #46 to #5 - deathchain ONLINE (09/04/2014) [-]
I had a similar situation. I sort of forgot how to write in print because I only EVER wrote in cursive. But my cursive was practically illegible to everyone but me, so my history teacher kept docking points on the essay portions of tests until one day she said she would just give me a zero for the essay unless I wrote in print.

This was a problem because I only remembered uppercase print and sucked at writing in it. So all of my essays were written in uppercase serial-killer font. It took four times as long to do, I cramped the **** out of my hand every time, and I never finished any of the essays from that point on, so I lost points anyway.

University=college

In america, a college is basically a university, but less prestigious. Or something like that.
User avatar #53 to #49 - liberalgodess (09/04/2014) [-]
a university is a collection of multiple colleges
User avatar #130 to #49 - meganinja (09/05/2014) [-]
liberalgodess is right. In the US a University has many different colleges. For example, my school has I think 7, such as the College of Liberal Arts, the College of Engineering, College of Business, etc... although all of them have a name but I can't be arsed to remember that **** .
#81 - hentaisweetie (09/04/2014) [-]
Why is it minatory for students to learn science, complex math, and art while none of those things are guaranteed to be useful unless you get a job catering to that field and yet no school makes learning how to handle taxes, finances, or vehicle maintenance a requirement for graduating.
#158 to #81 - John Cena (09/07/2014) [-]
The subjects themselves may or mey not be useful later, but the techniques, methods, and metacognition are required to learn anything new.
#83 to #81 - ainise (09/04/2014) [-]
Basically to make a well-rounded individual, to allow you to touch in all of the fields you may eventually move on to and to make you grow.

To explain on this, I had a wonderful professor stand up and explain why him learning roman architecture helped him in construction. None of the actual things from then were used, but rather how the romans thought was what was important. The concepts were relatively useless to him, and he never harkened back to roman construction to help him in a modern project...but learning how they solved problems - that is something that greatly helped him.

And this wasn't just limited to this ancient architecture class, he continued to explain how all facets of schooling greatly helped him in becoming the rich, successful person he became. Retired only 18 years into his job, passing a successful multi-million dollar business to his children and now teaches at community colleges to try to help the kids who don't have the money for the best teachers.

Why is it mandatory to learn science, math and art? Because it expands your mind, gives you a greater understanding, makes you question things and most of all: makes you a more well rounded and intelligent individual.

He couldn't pay his student loan debts AND afford new clothes, so he just never grew.

Elementray school: I still prefer to write in cursive, I think it looks cleaner than my standard hand writing
Middle school: Yes, that is what an English class does; teaches you English.
High School: When every high-school class claims to be college level, none are. Although his second statement is true.
College: I never heard a teacher say that, or anything at all like that. Then again, they just asked for it typed in this day and age, and don't care how you write your notes. Secondly, What classes is he taking? Mine are ******* hard as **** . You ever try majoring physics? Its not fun.

IDK, I don't see the funny here.
#20 to #13 - cerig (09/04/2014) [-]
Well TBH I wholeheartedly agree with you from a science/math perspective. But in regards to English/writing, its essentially true as in the comic.
User avatar #25 to #20 - grandmasterjax (09/04/2014) [-]
Maybe, I was considering a writing minor.

Fellow physics major here, I concur with college. Maybe the college assigned gen. eds. are like that but it's been a bit of a struggle through most of it

User avatar #73 to #13 - wimwam (09/04/2014) [-]
Most of the people who argue that college is easy did not major in STEM. I agree on every one of your points though, with the possible exception being that I feel like cursive writing is obsolete in an age where most lengthy documents are done on the computer.

Anyone have the picture of the elementary teacher with an ak47 and the sandy hook sign in the background? I'm just too lazy to go back and look for it.

The reason you don't get it is because you have an engineer's degree.

"MUH SKOOL MADE ME LERN KERSIV AND I'LL NEVAR YOOZ IT EVAR AGAIN!!!!"

People seem to not realize that your cursive signature that you use to sign docs and **** is basically your fingerprint in text form.
#127 to #126 - tenlolilimit (09/05/2014) [-]
but you don't need to write in cursive, you could just do it in your regular handwriting
User avatar #129 to #127 - gmarrox ONLINE (09/05/2014) [-]
Yeah, but that would make your signature significantly easier to forge
#133 to #129 - John Cena (09/05/2014) [-]
Your signature doesn't even have to be in cursive, it can be in absolute gibberish as long as it at least attempts to make out letters.
User avatar #134 to #133 - gmarrox ONLINE (09/05/2014) [-]
Yes, but as long as that gibberish is unique, no one else will be able to forge it easily.
#99 - John Cena (09/04/2014) [-]
protip: use cursive to write notes faster(you might write slow at first, but once you get used to it, it iwll beat your current speed)

superiortip: learn to type

From where I come from you learn how to write and read cursive on the 1st grade.I thought it was like that everywhere.
User avatar #34 to #33 - flemmi (09/04/2014) [-]
i, in germany, learnd it in the 2nd or 3rd grade. but it was always volunteer to write howevery you want, as long as the teacher can read it. I never really learnd how to now write cursive.
User avatar #35 to #34 - darkbladept (09/04/2014) [-]
Yeah,in Portugal from grade 5 you can just write the way you want to,if the teachers understand it.
User avatar #36 to #35 - flemmi (09/04/2014) [-]
it is funny in general you can only imagen what someone wrote in cursive but always know when they write the standart letters. yet we still teach cursive because we would not write fast enough without it. (i think that was the reason we learnd it to write faster)
User avatar #37 to #36 - darkbladept (09/04/2014) [-]
I think that you're correct.But caligraphy looks amazing IMO.
User avatar #38 to #37 - flemmi (09/04/2014) [-]
Caligraphy is the art of beautefull writing. i really looks awesome but it so slow. i tried it once. and it took 2 minutes for my own name.
User avatar #39 to #38 - darkbladept (09/04/2014) [-]
Yeah.
