Basically, school is a joke and anyone who believes it's a "learning institution" is brainwashed.

Reasons school sucks:

1. You have no rights, no true freedom and are ultimately an expendable client.
2. The curriculum and textbooks are full of skewed and biased versions of history, and outright mistakes/lies.
3. School teachers, or the majority, are payed so little they have no motivation or intention to "educate" us.
4. It's a complete rip-off, you shouldn't have to pay thousands of dollars for an "education".
5. It's structured in the most exploitative way, students are at the whim of the school, not vice versa.
6. Food sucks, unhealthy and immoral.
7. You have to ask to go to the restroom.

Ultimately, school kills the students natural thirst for knowledge, it's forced curriculum makes children learn arbitrary material that they're not even interested in and has no relation to their REAL lives. If you still have the chance, DROP OUT.

Discuss?

Welcome to the majority of people who have or had the same thing
But were damn lucky even enough to have an education

Everything you listed depend on the school you're going to. I have an English teacher who I KNOW has a lot of motivation and fully intends to educate us to his ability.

Sounds like you had a bad school day and now you're taking out your aggression by attempting to come up with legitimate reasons why the educational systems suck without any information backing it up.

Buck up, boy-o.

ah well, i care about my grades because i know an education can provide me with something to fall back on if i fail in my unrelated endeavors

Well I'm not totally against the concept of school but I am strongly opposed to gym class. I don't think anybody should be forced to get fit. Health is a choice and not something that should be forced upon anyone.

I actually agree with a lot of that, and have talked about it several times.

In school they seem more interested in getting idiots in the seats than actually educating the people that have actually stayed on for post-16 studies.

Quote by Lespauljames
wht a jerk, its douchebags like you, who sit in the back of history flicking boogers at the window, thats why teachers dont want to teach.
i advise not dropping out, as grades = further education = more chance of a good career


Erm...I don't know you or him very well but judging from those two posts and his ability to actually construct a coherent argument I'd say he isn't the oaf you are making him out to be.

I WOULD drop out if I didn't know that society is going to fuck me over for not having a diploma. I say this same thing every day to someone. I hate school, and have no interest in finishing it, let alone furthering my education. I'm only going to so I can make a living.

6. Food sucks, unhealthy and immoral.


Agreed, those damn hamburgers do nothing but fight and sleep with prostitutes!!
Nine planets surround the sun
Only one does the sun embrace
Upon this watered one
So much we take for granted


So let us sleep outside tonight
Lay down in our mother's arms
For here we can rest safely

Well, I can see why you'd think school is a joke. After all, your school has neglected to teach you how to spell.

Quit being a pair of floppy labia. Education is a gift. Try getting a great job without one. I'm trying and it's impossible.
The information they give you is yours to interpret - but if you look into even the smallest portion of it then the institution has done its job by way of indirect education.

Kids, Black Zeppelin is going to lead you to become one of the people who should wear government-regulated helmets.
Stay in school.

Suck it up. School may suck for you but just get through it then you'll never have to worry about it again. The education system over the pond might be crap, but what choice do you have - be a drop out or be at least mildly successful?
NOPE.
#37
are you a communist?

little ridiculous if you ask me. School isn't about learning the things you'd like to know. High school is mainly to expand your capability to study and understand any information, learn how to do research, give you basic knowledge about our planet and history, learn to speak and write the language on a mature level.
it's puberty that's making school look terrible. When you pass that stage, you'll love learning.
