    School is definitely a waste of time, Don't believe me? Okay, here I'll tell you what I do throughout my whole school day and what I'm actually learning. I have 4 classes throughout my school day but on my second and third class I have the same teacher just so you won't get confused. So for my 1st class I have financial management class, in this class we learn how to manage our money correctly, taxes and how to spend our money better. But the problem is that the teacher actually gives us paper work and she tells us to get our laptops and look for our answers on a site and when I go to the site the videos are long and so boring, seriously I feel like I'm killing my brain cells from watching this long boring videos!!! We do this every single day! On my 2nd and 3rd I have the same teacher, All this women is doing is talking in front of the class for 30 minutes or more ( she could be making her stories up ) and then she tells us to get our laptops and work on our project, seriously she won't even grade it and the project is about writing a paragraph describing yourself, OMG how is this even a project? We are literally on our laptops for 3 hours with 30 minutes. On my 4th class I have a computer class, the work is on the computer and the work is so easy that a elementary school student could easily understand it. And I see the teacher on her desk chilling, she is on her computer phone and eating some food. Don't you think I'm wasting my time?

    I am in 11th grade and school makes me so unhappy. I cry almost every morning before school and almost everyday in the bathroom. I have great friends and everything but I can t succeed there. I try so hard to do all my work and make sure it s done with pride but I still don t do well on the assignments. I hate not being able to do anything that I want to do and instead do what a teacher is telling me to do. I need advice on whether or not dropping out is a possibility.

  • Is school useless?

    Best answer: Education itself is not useless. However the structure of primary and secondary school calls to be changed.

    Best answer: Education itself is not useless. However the structure of primary and secondary school calls to be changed.

    First, reduce the hours children have to spend at school. 6-7 hours is a long time to be focused on topics that aren't even helpful with paying bills or looking after elderly relatives - let alone, focusing on topics one may not be interested in or good at.

    So to answer your question - no, school is not useless. But it should be made flexible. Kids are people too - no one likes to be patronised at any age.

  • Is there a way to let college admissions know about how someone got through school through cheating?

    My "friend" during junior year used to steal tests from teachers' desk drawers and memorize the answers. He also cheated and inflated the impact of a community service project he did.

    My "friend" during junior year used to steal tests from teachers' desk drawers and memorize the answers. He also cheated and inflated the impact of a community service project he did. This is not my opinion or something I'm exaggerating. He is a well known cheater in my school, and he does that for subjects he's not strong in. Is there a way I could tell the colleges he's applying to about this. I don't think a cheater should get into the kinds of colleges he might get into over grades he didn't earn through his own hard work.

    Best answer: The "official" bible translation was written in ancient Greek.

    I have the official certificate of speaking Latin from my German school, the "Great Latinum", but that was 30 years ago, and as I didn't become a priest or worked in any other profession where Latin is really needed, I forgot a lot of my translation skills, and most of Latin grammar.

    I remember a student song in Latin:
    "Gaudeamus igitur iuvenes dum sumus"
    (Let us have fun while we're still young men)

    I wouldn't say learning Latin by song these days is easy; better take classes.

    You don't need to go as far as to delve deeply into the fine grammar, but understanding some ancient Roman words makes it easier to understand some scientific terms and even your own language.

    "Gallia est omnis divisa in partes tres, quarum unam incolunt Belgae, aliam Aquitani, tertiam, qui ipsorum lingua Celtae, nostra Galli appellantur."
    my translation:
    "France mainly has three parts, one of them is Belgium, the other one is Northern France, and the south is inhabited by the Celts, which we call the Gauls."
    (Gaius Julius Caesar, Roman warfarer and emperor, born around 100 BCE, stabbed by a knife and died allegedly on March 15th 44 BCE)
