    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. 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,... show more
    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.

  • Should I send my kid to private school so he does not have to be around a bunch of blacks and Mexicans like I did?

    Best answer: When I was young, we moved from an area with a higher than average minority population to a similar income level area that was practically all white, the schools were much better.

  • Poll: Is school a waste of time?

    I personally think school is a waste of time and I am a student saying this. Seriously, What kind of education am I even receiving? The education at school is a joke, You really don't learn anything it's just memorization. Right now I'm at school typing this, And I'm wasting my time right now,... show more

The education at school is a joke, You really don't learn anything it's just memorization. Right now I'm at school typing this, And I'm wasting my time right now, Right now I could be sleeping, cooking, working out or just working but instead I'm right here at school doing absolutely nothing but wasting my time. And I can't believe how some people actually believe that school is good for you and not a waste of time. Hopefully those people wake up and realize that they have been lied or they have been brainwashed.

  • Seriously why does school exist?? How could anyone believe that school is good for you?? What can l do?

    School is not about learning, School is about memorization and wasting time. Like right now, I’m wasting my time at school when I could be cooking, exercising or sleeping. Seriously I have to wake up at 4:30 am every single day just to be in that piece of trash called school. OMG what am I even learning????... show more
    School is not about learning, School is about memorization and wasting time. Like right now, I’m wasting my time at school when I could be cooking, exercising or sleeping. Seriously I have to wake up at 4:30 am every single day just to be in that piece of trash called school. OMG what am I even learning???? Seriously I learn more outside of school. And you know what’s the worst part? My parents made me stay after school for drivers ed which even wastes my time even more, Seriously it’s a bullshit class!! I ain’t learning ****, Seriously every thing is bullshit after school!! And I keep telling my parents how school really is and they just laughed at me. They said how grateful I should be that I’m in school. They say how school is the only place where you get your education, how school is so important. Seriously they have been brainwashed, Education is important not school unless the school is a good one. So what can I do?? I am crying as I am typing this at school, I just wished people can understand that not all schools are good, they are just abusing kids.

    I understand that people like to see their friends and I understand that school is nessesairy in society. I actually kind if like school. But God damn it sucks. It stresses me out and I don't have time for it. I want to work so I can pay rent and but food. Now I'm back in school and it just doesn't seem worth it. Yeah the payoff WAYYY down the line is good. But for now it's just so draining. Did any of you go through school without ever feeling like you are wasting your time?

  • Does life change after high school?

    Best answer: I don't really know where your mother gets that idea from.. life changes COMPLETEY when you start working. You meet new people straight away, eventually you may meet a partner, get married, (for some), etc etc. It is absurd to think that nothing will change.

    My dad struggled with English, I don’t know the name of his disability/ies but he didn’t make it through high school. My older brother was fine but when he got into 10th or 11th grade his grade in reading was starting to go down and chances are he partially has it. I’m in 8th grade. I’ve always been an avid reader/writer. When I was 6 I would write my own books out of copy paper and staple them together. Last week, I just received the information I won a local essay contest. These last two days in school, when I was in reading, I’ve been struggling. Stuff that I’ve done and understood has just not then there in my head. I could not understand an essay whatsoever and it was stressful and embarrassing because I’m looked upon as one of the smarter kids in class. Then yesterday, it took me 1 class period for a simple quiz answer. I had kept writing answers then crossing them out. I ended up just giving up and writing random stuff. Nothings clouding my mind, no boy or girl drama. I hope this isn’t permanent. Does anyone know what’s happening to me?

  • I'm in grade 11, Is it okay for me to drop out high school once I turn 16?

    I learned that our current school system is really useless, outdated, obsolete, created during the Industrial Age, I'm labeled by either stupid, or smart by my test scores, I don't need to know "calculus: or "physics" or even Shakespeare. Unless I want to become some scientist.

  • Does high school really go by fast?

    The seniors at my high school said that it does. But do you think that's true? I'm a Freshman and it has felt like I've been in high school forever(even though it's been less than four months.) :/ I'm planning on graduating as a junior, also, anything to get out sooner.
