    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.

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.

  • 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.

  • Are reading disabilities genetic?

    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.

    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?

  • 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.

    I'm a freshman in High school and I am considered a good, nerdy kid. I care about my grades; I stress about every class, test, teacher and opinion. Recently I have befriended some peers of mine, these peers are nothing like me. They kinda care about grades, they're carefree and act like normal teenagers. They smoke, drink and do things they shouldn't. I realize they're a bad influence but they are people I relax with and have a good time with. Since hanging out with them I've started not caring as much about my grades, going to school baked, I ruined a relationship of 2 of them. I've became closer to one of the guys in the group, we're now talking. I love these people, they're the people I want throughout high school but I know I can't drop out of high school for any stupid decision.

    I hate school so much with a burning passion. There is so many reasons so i'll just list them out. I know education is important but I hate school. 1. They put useless stuff in your brain 2. I feel hopeless and lost at school 3. I'm very angry, anxious, depressed, moody, self conscious, and overall not happy there (i'm happy anywhere but school) 4. The lunch makes you want to puke 5. Too much Stress and it caused me issues 6. No one understands you 7. Only a small amount of friends care 8. Too much work 9. Too many rules 10. The dress code makes you feel like sh*t 11. It's a mess 12. Way too many people 13. very loud 14. and more other crap I know that school is a good source of education but it's not working for me. My parents won't home school me and they tell me just to deal with it. I had a mental breakdown today at school and I just can't do it anymore.
