you need to go onto university and study for 3/4 of your life to get an amazing job anyway and school exams contribute nothing to that shit, hard work is what gets you there

and if you just want a regular job best hope you dont do well at school or they just look at your exam results and are all hell nah nigga u overqualified gtfo and then you're stuck in a limbo

Just think about how bad of an idea it would be if we "all learned at our own pace".

Learning isn't fun until you find something you enjoy... what makes you think we'd learn a little bit of everything on our own?

Um... everybody is born different (well, unless you have a monozygotic twin)


Pretty sure there's actually only two ways to be born.

so most people are really born the same

Not on our own, but at our own pace. A grade 10 math class is designed for a 15 year old with an IQ of 100. I usually get the lesson in the first 5 minutes. Why do I have to waste 1:25 minutes of my time and why does someone who needs another hour to understand it be under all that pressure?


because you're not special

How is it at your pace if it's not on your own? It's your pace you're just sharing it with someone?

You can't have one or the other, you must have both.

Real answer TS: it would cost far too much to personally tailor every student's curriculum to their specific needs, that's why.

Quote by ealimoradi
You can be in a biology class for example, you read the lesson, ask the teacher your questions, give a test to prove you have learned the lesson. When you passed all the tests you graduate. Now someone can graduate high school in 2 years or 8 years without all the weirdness of skipping a year or being held back.



there is no way you could honestly learn and retain an entire high school education in 2 years, learning is easy, remembering what you have learnt requires plenty of tedious revision.
I "learnt" heaps of stuff that I don't remember now as an adult, tests are a sucky way to measure learning, I could do calculus like a mother****er as a 15 year old, but now I'd be screwed if I tried to do any of that shit.

Well, in one respect, we do.
We all go to school, were we are assessed in our abilities and find out what we're good at, then a lot of us go on to further education to study a group of subjects that we wish to specialise in, and we may even carry on studying those or even different subjects afterwards. It's entirely our choice what subjects we study.

The reason we are educated in groups is mainly because it's the most efficient way for lots of people to learn. Y'see, there are a lot more students than teachers so if we all had one to one tuition, there wouldn't be enough teachers to go around.

Well sounds like you're just mad you are still in school.

If you seriously only want to have fun sometimes and not all the time go ahead and get out early.
You're not socially developed enough before 18 to really function in any kind of job setting.

Plus, you can graduate early if your parent and you do the right stuff, a kid graduated with me from HighSchool at 13.

No. 60% of people in theory have a an IQ of 95-105. They would stay in high school for 4 years. The 20% less intelligent would stay longer BUT the 20% higher intelligent would graduate earlier, thus a rough average of 4 years would still be in place. Also, teachers would have to do much less work since they wouldn't have to construct lesson plans therefore justifying a lower salary.

You tell the the teachers union how justified that lower salary is and see how far you get, plus the added bureaucracy in constantly assessing student progress would add millions of dollars to any country's education budget.

IQ is very useful for judging people. For example, if someone brings up their IQ in conversation then I can instantly judge them as a prick and stop talking to them.

"fun" for me is to be a part of the scientific community. In our science class, we where coloring safety posters with crayons. If education was more self paced I could possibly be in a lab, adding my little puzzle piece to the great puzzle of science. Instead I'm coloring something telling people to not put lab equipment in their mouths. I'm due to graduate in two years; when I'm 15, which I guess is still better that the conventional 18 but it two more years of torture which I honestly think I can't handle.

Dude, you're a kid, you're thinking about this like a kid, however much you think you know, trust me, you don't know shit about most things, patience and compromise are important virtues you must have in order to work in a professional environment, no one is better or more important than anyone else, you could get a job cleaning toilets and that job would not be beneath you, you're only human, just like everyone else.

In some central African countries that is the life expectency. But I highly pretty sure they don't have internet access

I know trivia too, it doesn't make you clever, stop trying to be what you think you should be and accept that you are still growing and learning, and that you have a while until you're ready for the big scary world.
Anyway I'm tired of arguing with you, I'm off to drink bourbon because I can.

This is hilarious!
IQ does not determine intelligence on the whole - there are many different types of intelligence.

Quote by ealimoradi
If schools were self-paced wouldn't that contribute to our society much better? Wouldn't our productive be much higher since more intelligent people could start working earlier instead of being being held back by the average?

so you think that, for example, because someone's not good at maths that they should have to stay in education for years and years longer so they can catch up with someone much more advanced in maths, even though they want to be a builder?
