Top Ten Reasons Kids Hate School

Razor79

The Top Ten

1 Homework

I mean I hate all of this stuff but homework brings the hell of school to your home! - moose4life19

I hate homework if it's fun however it also means the teachers are not doing there job properly cause home is our free time were meant to learn at school not home shows how lazy they are. I mean they just wanna get paid why tell us to do work at home If we wake up early to study there teachers are extremely lazy

I hate everything about school Bullies because I can't stand seeing people being teased [I stand up to them] Waking up early I have to wake up 5 hours earlier than I want to for something I don't like. Mean Teachers my teacher is so mean and unfair. Studying I have to study for like 4 hours! Heavy books. Summer Math Packets! Uhh I had one last summer and it was so hard and boring but homework is the worst. I mean can't we just do all of this at school I mean were in school for 6 hours right? That should be PLENTY of time to do all of the learning

Well first School Sucks then giving you school work at home. It is all madness

Homework just wastes your life and makes you stop doing what you like to do, such as drawing, playing video games, going online, playing with your pet, etc. Who cares about homework anyway? I don't. - PhilTheCorgi

2 Bullies

Should definitely be number one. Suicide (sometimes) caused by bullies is the number one death in America. That is absolutely disgusting knowing that calling someone fat, ugly, whore, slut, worthless can lead to so many problems. People say that words can't hurt, but they can they hurt me

Words can't hurt? Who said that? Apparently, even one word matters. And If they're bad ones, they will affect others, even It was just the regular "fat" word - MLPFan

Kids **HAVE** to go to school. They have no say in the matter. The last thing they need, is to be harassed by their fellow pupils or students.

I don't get bullied but whenever I see a one bullying another person I get mad

I hate bullies! They are just terrible only judging people and making people feel bad about themselves.

3 Getting Up In the Morning

Worst thing ever! As soon as that alarm sounds at 6 am I know another day of survival of the fittest starts. It sucks even more when your in winter and your all warm and sound asleep then you hear your mom come and rip the blankets off of your body the cold comes and you just want to either yell at your mom and blame the government for school being mandatory or you just want to kill yourself... you decide.
- PePsMeX

I know right getting up in the morning is the worst! Like I have to get up at 6 am and it the worst and when every time I get up my eyes hurt and I'm so hard to get up - thenewalfmonster68

Blah... I hate this part of day... you kno were you wake up... and your cold... then you put on your blanket.. and you'll be all warm... AND THEN YOUR MOM walks in your room and pulls off your blanket and says "GET UP TIME 4 SCHOOL" and you'll be all cold again... DAMN!. I hate that lmao... then right after school you finish your dream off, LMA0 - SmoothCriminal

I so agree with SmoothCriminal. As soon as the banket gets ripped off, I just try to preserve body heat cause I know the mothers gonna rip it off ya again. - booklover1

When I have to get up my mom will turn off the light I hate it! it hurts my eyes

4 It's Just So Boring

I thinks schools should introduce this concept, we do math, reading, history and science until High School, then in High School, all of our classes are electives like cooking, theatre, art, and so on. Your parents and other adults would argue and say 'but wont you forget everything about the subjects if that happens? I don't think I would forget The subjects even if I didn't have to do them in High School cause how I forget everything if I was forced to learn about it for 8 years or however long it actually was. And so much stuff especially in math is unnecessary like Algebra, in the real world, when have you every had to do that complex piece of crap subject, math for me is adding subtracting and maybe multiplying, that's all you need to know about it. So I think in High School they should just let us only take classes about stuff we would actually be able to pay attention in

I can't wait until I'm thirty and say "Oh man! I wish I remembered how to make a parabola with this arc and these points on the Coordinate Grid! " - Juan-Luis

Well because you do maths, then you do writing, then you get tired and your not allowed to sleep in class, then you get ultra bored, wouldn't you rather wake up at 1:00 pm and go outside and eat ice-cream.

NEEDS to be higher. Heck, needs to be NUMBER ONE. It's basically everything on this list!

No. There are worse reasons, such as bullies. I'd say this does deserve being 4th place, though.

yes true!

5 Grades

This is why I refer to school as the stress factory.
Whenever I get a bad grade on a certain subject, they call me parents and say that I am doing terrible in this subject. At least my parents know I'm trying hard, because lots of the teachers seem to look at the negative and try to harass us so they can tell get us in trouble OUT of school! They say good grades get you into good schools, which is true, but the stress won't help! I hate this!

I'm not showing off or anything but I'm very sorry for you. I get stressed a lot but I always seem to get a good grade. 52% was my lowest mark ever. - sryanbruen

I just kinda had an epiphany while reading this. So, you see, grades were invented as an incentive to learn, but it has be taken so far. Everyone I know freaks out about getting the grades to get into the top 10%, most of them try to take all AP and pre-AP and stay up all night so they can get that one grade up. I just think that really it's all unfair because some minds naturally hold more information than others and the purpose of school should just be to give you some information to help you in the future, not to stress you out so much you have to start taking anti-depressants and caffeine pills to stay awake all night.

Okay, grades are idiotic.

I have a terrible grade in one of my classes, math, which is beyond unfair because I am definitely one of the smarter kids in the class, not in a bragging way but because a student had an argument with the teacher that if he stuck a fork into an electrical outlet he would be able to shoot lightning bolts like Storm. This isn't even the lowest point my class has gotten to. So how do I get bad grades? I work hard on everything I get, and that is why. My papers have been late because I was trying to actually learn more. One assignment was marked down because I decided to learn about Strong Force, something we hadn't learned about in eighth grade because these kids are still struggling with PEMDAS in eighth grade, and it took extra time because I'm not able to skip the lectures about things I learned in fifth grade and I think were part of our common core that year. The geniuses of our class are dragging the handful of competent students down as well. On ...more - pandagirl

So our life is determined by letters and numbers. Well that's definitely not stressful! - AnnieCallie

6 Annoying People

Why is everyone such asses nowadays? Believe it or not, school is supposed to be interesting and learning about things, but the annoying people you deal with everyday make it a horrible experience. People need to stop judging others and leaving people alone.

American teens becomes stupider every year! What a rip off!

Hooray! Another stereotypical jerk! Despite popular lore, there ARE intelligent Americans. - CatCode

To me, the majority of the school is annoying! In my middle school, only three kids in the WHOLE SCHOOL (including myself) liked Nirvana! That's gotta say something about modern society! It's wack!

I'm in 5th going into 6th and most of the people in my class don't know who Nirvana are. About 75% of people in my school don't know who the Black Eyed Peas are - lelennyface

Yesterday somebody stole my gum pack (A lot of people chew gum in school to stay focused), and every single day people play those annoying Boyfriend/Girlfriend games (Asking me about dating people from school). Even if I keep gum a secret, people still know about it because of the rattling sound and they could either see or smell it in my mouth. They know almost everything about me. I do kinda sound mean because they won't leave me alone. A boy named Demitri kept calling me stinky, ugly, and a troll for no reason.

7 Mean Teachers

One time my parents were gone and I was staying with my grandma, and she got really sick and I saved her because I called 911 when she couldn't reach the phone and had to spend the day at the hospital. I thought she was going to die. And the next day Miss Bigelow (3rd grade teacher) asked me where my homework was. I told
her the whole story, and she didn't believe me. I got Grandma on the phone, and now she believed me but she still counted off for not doing my homework. - Trivium

When I was in third grade I had my worst teacher in the history of ever in my life. She never helped anyone. Her accent was hard to understand anything so the most of the kids (except the Spanish kids) were failing. When she pulled up a parent/teacher conference she was explaining things that were so not true, and after that my teacher had given my mother some work that would improve my grades. The stuff on those work sheets didn't even make any sense. She never taught any of it. And me nor my mother could figure it out. And in the middle of me trying to finish question 5 it had been an hour. And my mother asked me if I had been yelling mean stuff to the teacher (As I said it wasn't true) I told her no. She had a extreme face which meant tell the truth or your grounded. I still told her no. And she said okay. She also told me that my teacher wanted to have a student/teacher conference with me and some other class mates. We all had to sit in a huge circle during lunch and while ...more

Trivium your teacher was mean! Dang. My math teacher is SO mean One day I was just sitting in class daydreaming and my teacher screams at the top of her lungs PAY ATTENTION PAY ATTENTION! And another time she asked a REALLY hard math problem. I didn't know the answer so I didn't raise my hand. A lot of people had their hands up and my teacher calls on me! AND she expected me to do it IN MY HEAD I was like what I can't do that in my head!

Well, it is likely that you were not paying attention in class, so you could not understand the subject. Next time, try to focus a bit more so that you understand more clearly. No offense, okay? - SansicTale5

Mean teachers defend and protect bullies trust me that happen in 6th grade ago but thank God I'm done with it.

8 Physical Education

When I was in eighth grade, which was my last year of middle school, my friend and I took an advanced math class at the high school. The classes at the high school are longer than the ones at the middle school, so it messed up our schedules. We had to miss the first 5-10 minutes of our next class because of this, which happened to be gym. We would sometimes miss important information. Before the school year had started, we had let the coaches know that this would happen. At first, they marked us tardy every day. It took them a while to get used to our schedules, but they still forgot every now and then. Also, when one person was late or not in gym clothes, they made everyone run for a longer time. They expected everyone to know how to play sports, so they never explained the rules. When we started our basketball unit, they made my team demonstrate how to play in front of everyone. I'm not great at sports, so I was only picked to be on a team one time (which happened to be my ...more

I don't hate school, but I hate P.E or gym. Once, my school was making all the upper-grades play volleyball. It was complete hell for me and my friend. The boys in the class thought it was the Olympics, or if they lost/someone dropped the ball, we'd all be expelled. So, naturally, I dropped the ball once. (Clumsy me.) And a one of the boy screams, "ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! " That wasn't the end of it. Every time I or my friend missed the ball, one of three boys would roll their eyes, scream at us something like "Oh come on, slow-poke," or wouldn't talk to us and mope around for the rest of the day. The teacher was standing right there where the net was, so in the middle of this whole thing; and he didn't do anything. I love that teacher, but I guess he just didn't think it was too big to notice.

The first nail in the coffin was when one of the boys yelled at me as the volleyball came my way, "Don't get it! I'll get it! " And he lunged in front of me ...more

It's boring. It's useless. It's a time waster. If I could, I would stop Physical Education altogether, and stop children from having heart attacks and having their minds plagued with sports.

I'm terrible at sports so there being a class where I have to terribly in front of everyone ( cute boys, girls who stare at you in disgust, BFFs pretending your doing great, sporty people screwing their face up and wincing oh and not to forget the teacher who has the power to make you redo EVERYTHING! ).

9 Exams

The worst part is that my school always give us very 'HARD' exams. How much hard you study it won't be of any use. It is almost impossible for us to identify what answer for each question. Our school doesn't even have the mind for us to get good marks. They don't even think how much it affects our future. And we don't have any other choice because this is the only school in our area. Everyone knows that there are good, average and below average students in the world. So they should make the paper more easier and give us questions according. Our school thinks that we are some kind of 'SUPER INTELLIGENT ROBOTS'. No matter why there are hundreds of failures in my school!

Worst thing in the world!

I hate exams! You take all these tests in the beginning and show that you actually know what you are learning! Than near the end of half the year you take this EXAM THAT IS WORTH 75% OF YOUR GRADE! We are teens what do you expect we want to have fun!

The thing that ruins you're summer and never let's you reach you're dreams. NOBODY NEEDS TESTS! IT IS SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN! - DominiusDarkKnight5

10 Bitchy Popular Girls

I don't think I would put up with them, just call them sluts and walk off

They are super annoying and ct lik they are the princess of every thing.

I don't mean to share a sob story, and hopefully it doesn't seem like I'm asking for attention. But these girls make my life even worse. My mom died a couple years ago and now I have a horrible step mom who verbally and physically abuses me and an older step brother who tries to beat me up everyday. My dad tells me I should just deal with them because I have to live there for three more years anyway. One time my brother punched me in the stomach until I passed out and my parents did nothing. My grandfather died in 9/11 before I was born and my grandmother lives in Sweden and I'm never able to see her. I haven't seen my mother's parents since I was 4. My uncle is emotionally and verbally abusive to me and is always ruining my mood. He says the worst things, he made fun of me when I came out and told him I was pansexual and said it didn't matter because no one will date my ugly ass anyway, and he said that just this morning. One of my aunts is dead and the other refuses to see us. My ...more

Ugh, that sucks. I feel sorry for you if you have to go through all of that. Really, really sorry - MLPFan

Well that was rude. Please be respectful to everyone, especially when they're popular or most popular. - PhilTheCorgi

11 School Lunch

My school lunch is disgusting EVERY SINGLE DAY. One day at school we had to eat chicken wings that were raw. I threw up and one of the cafeteria ladies made me mop up my own puke and said I was being disrespectful to their food. I told my teacher and she said I shouldn't barf out school lunch because it was offensive. Now at my school, you can go to detention for throwing up. That wasn't even the worst part, about three months ago we were having "tomato soup" for lunch. I love soup, I almost thought it would taste good. Then I ate it. Thankfully I didn't throw up. Then I forgot to buy a chocolate milk so I got up in line next to my friend for lunch. I watched the process of making the soup and it was NASTY. They squirted ketchup in a bowl and then they put it in the sink and turned on the tap water. It was boiling tap water so it made it look a little like soup. Then they served it. I told all the kids at the cafeteria to watch and me and my friend counted three kids that ...more

Wow... That's horrible. I can't believe that they would make kids do something like that, or eat something like that!

Good thing I live in Australia where we bring our own food to school. I feel sorry for the kids in U. S who have to eat that slop.

Here in the states most kids have both the option to bring or buy lunch (at least at my school. )

The schools put no effort in making their lunches. And they serve the most disgusting things ever. Half the time, the food is expired/rotten, or under/overcooked. And bugs end up getting into the food way too often.

Yeah that's so true. I remember when I when to a elementary school, we had pizza on Fridays., they tasted like cardboard. And in my current middles school, they serve fries and they're also taste gross. They don't taste like fries, they taste like water.

12 No Friends

It's really unfair because this year I was separated from all my friends and I'm all alone in my class (full of popular kids by the way) and I'm alone for projects, or groups during sports

If you have social anxiety, then school is practically hell on Earth. For some reason, teachers feel that kids with such a mental condition should simply "get over it." They understand the true misery of being alone.

Let's list some stuff:
Not having partners, so you have to do 100% of the work by yourself instead of splitting the work with someone.
Always feeling alone and jealous that all of annoying popular kids have friends.
If you screw up on a test or do something stupid in gym, then you can laugh about it with your friends. If you don't have any friends, then you're left alone to cry in the corner and feel ashamed for your failures and no one will comfort you or joke about it with you.

This is what actually happened to me this year! Like come on first year in high school!

It's super awkward when the teachers tells everyone to pick a partner, and you have no friends in that class. Then you have to got tell the teacher and they ask the whole class of anyone will be my partner. It's kinda embarrasing and it makes me look like no one likes me. - Popsicles

13 Pressure

I hate school. They expect you to do everything in such a short period of time. If not you either get a bad grade or you do it for homework. I don't even want to start with getting in trouble for forgetting one assignment. I stay up till about 11:00 every night working on homework. I hardly have any te for school because ok stressing about the big test or project. I hate having to do projects too. I can't trust anyone because I'll end up doing most of the work and getting a good grade for both of us even though I'm the only one who deserves it. I love weekends and all but teachers ruin that too with an assignment that they forget to check when we get back. I hardly even have time for sports anymore

Dude you've got it EASY. On the weekends I'm stuck driving 2 hours from home and going to all these school for the WHOLE day. I don't get time to do anything fun, and the next day I study for tests. - Apex320

I really feel horrible about the pressure kids go through at school.. And teachers know this but they don't make things easier.. Instead they make things harder... Being a teacher is a beautiful profession.. Teachers today insult the profession... They are unprofessional if anything else... Not like long ago...

Well, I don't think you should call ALL teachers unprofessional, but the pressure is just too much. Thanks to this, my blood pressure is NOT normal. I mean, they're obsessed with us getting into collage, so there's all these collage prep school which drain every last drop of energy in you and melt you to the core. Then there's pressure to pass the SAt, ACT, and all these hellish (but strangely necessary) tests. They don't understand that not all jobs require skills learned in school. But, to be honest, they just don't listen. - Apex320

Once I was supposed to be doing this project on how Charles Dicken's life influenced his writing. So since I have bipolar depression, I was about to get to work on it, but then I had this little crying fit. So we were in the library, and the librarian is super nice. She took me to a back room and told me to come back when I felt better. Every time I thought I was better, I would start crying again. So after a little while (maybe ten minutes) I decided to just suck it up because this is a partner project, and I don't want him to have to do all the work. So I got working and after the whole thing was over, the teachers (who saw my little breakdown) took points off for not working in the library, even though I came back out and did it. This is the kind of pressure I have in all my classes except French, because I'm just naturally good at that.

I'm Asian and my parents constantly pressures me to get straight As :(

14 Work

Every time you complete a worksheet the teachers always have another one waiting for you

School should not be work. ( Because when we grow up we have to get a job then work until we die)If we have to learn something when we are older our bosses should teach it! My ideal school would be candy pencils, allowed to wear what you want instead of a hideous uniform, fun teachers, no homework and any kind of bullies will be expelled. Unfortunately this probably wont happen

God I hate doing work all the time it so boring -_-

Work teaches you how to write neatly and know words your entire life. But still, work does NOT make you attractive. It teaches you how to be a hobo and an unattractive ugly person! - HelloWhyImHere2

15 Popularity

Does nothing but adds stress among todays people. It has grown a crippled and crude society that is the reason why issues like bullying or racism exist. Popularity is a common root for suicide, and anyone reading this, if you agree, vote for this as why kids despise schools.

I live in Canada, there's a lot of boys/girls that are more popular then me. I'm a loser for some reason, I don't even act like a loser and no one likes me for some reason, the I'm the least popular boy in my school, always feel bad about myself everyday, only nerds like me, and I hate them. If I didn't go school this wouldn't happen. I'm 8.

Popularity is not fair, you know. If you're popular, you get all the kids as your friends (and most popular people use their "friends"to bully other kids and the cover up for them) And if you're the opposite, no one wants to be your friend and they don't care if you're wearing something new (if you're a smart kid, they'll just use you for your homework). It's not fair at all... Do those jerks know that school is for education and making friends with all the other kids, and not for popularity and to make fun of weaker kids? I don't think so because if they knew, they wouldn't care about popularity... - MLPFan

Everybody was asking me to do favors every time and it was so annoying. They need to start asking someone else for favors too. Being popular is good, but it will make everyone ask you for favors every time. It's very rude to always get the same person to do jobs, because then they'll get bored, and nobody wants that. Sometimes, you may feel like hitting and kicking because of that, but you wouldn't actually do it, because that's bullying. Nobody enjoys being bullied or insulted. I usually feel like saying "Stop asking me for every single favor", but that would be mean, so I wouldn't actually say it. People were also telling me to do things I'm not supposed to do, which is not very nice. If they do that to you, don't listen to them. - PhilTheCorgi

16 People Cheating On Their Work and Tests

Yeah, I've had to cut a few corners when I was in high school.

I hate these people. They are spoiled and lazy. In my school, if you get a bad grade, You wont have recess. The students cheat other students to get passing grades. Worst of all, they always act smart. These people are complete liars. They know that lying is wrong and no one likes a cheat! But, they are trying to be on the smartest student of the year ranks and they are trying to be called very smart as possible without studying. Some of them even threat other pupils. If they confess that they cheat, It would be fine (a little). But if they are also liars This would happen:
Teacher:Okay kids. Here's your exam sheets. You have 90 minutes to finish this (giving sheets to students)
Later...
Kid 001:Hey you! (whispering)
Kid 002:What? (Whispering)
Kid 001:Can you show me your sheet?
Kid 002:Wait, isn't that cheating?
Teacher:Okay, What's going on?!
Kid 002:(pretends innocent) It was Kid 002, teacher! Kid 002 ask my work! (pretends to cry)
Teacher:Kid 002, You're ...more - MLPFan

We had to draw a portrait of ourselves once, and I worked really hard on it. Lots of people said it was really pretty, and I was pretty proud and satisfied (which I'm not very often). We had about 5 weeks for the drawing, and this girl in my class didn't do anything at all, every single lesson. The lesson before we had to turn in our drawing, she asked the teacher if she could take hers home and he said yes. The next lesson, she had this really realistic and pretty drawing of herself, and I asked her how she did it and she started laughing and told me her mom made it for her (her mom's an artist). So she literally put NO EFFORT at all in her drawing, and she got higher marks than me, which still annoys me now and that was almost two years ago. I really don't mind when someone gets higher marks than me, but I do when I've worked really hard on something and the other person hasn't. - Silverfeather

People always look at my work, and it is making me uncomfortable. - PhilTheCorgi

17 Favoritism Among Teachers

I once had a health teacher in 9th grade who would always try to slip in little feministic tidbits into her lesson, as if her misandry wasn't blatantly obvious enough. She would put us down, as if our being male was unholy and sinful. She once played a game in the class where we would add and subtract points based on our life choices:
Teacher: If you have a vagina, add 3 points. If you have a penis, subtract 5 points.
She had low expectations for us males, and said that the world had the same expectations as well. She intentionally ruined our grades, and misgraded 2 of my tests, both of which I scores perfectly on. In the end, she gave me a final grade of C. For health.

Last year, I had an old teacher who was teaching sewing and cooking (it was a required class) for her last year. She had already taught for 25 years, so she was going deaf. You often had to repeat what you said several times before she would understand. She was also extremely quiet, so it was difficult to hear what she was saying when 40 students were talking as well. She would never explain how to sew anything. She would just tell us what we had to sew and expect us to make it perfectly. But her absolute worst quality was her sexism. Her bias toward girls wasn't hidden. Once, when the class was talking too loud, she got fed up and made everyone get out of their chairs and stand at the back of the room. She proceeded to assign every boy to a seat. After she was done, she let the girls choose where to sit out of the remaining seats.

They lie when they say that you all are equal to me while saying that they look out for students whom they admire and they do not judge you by your work your behavior or your hard work I so do not support this idea of favoritism among teachers

I once had a 5th grade teacher. The class pet was the girl, who has this so called "cute face". With it, she could get away with just about anything. Everyday, she would forget to do homework, but sit her "cord face", she would always get away with it. She also has a double persona. With teachers, she's so nice and cute. With fellow pupils, she's harsh and rude.

Ugh! Teachers! Majority of my teachers like me but the rest hate my guts for no apparent reason! They get on my nerve and they don't pay attention when someone is breaking the rules. I was sitting at my desk quietly reading and suddenly my teacher glared at me! What the heck? I'm reading quietly then you're glaring at me like I'm doing something wrong? Are you kidding me?! Other time, the same teacher walks up to my desk and is all like why are you crying?! I was all like I'm not. Then he's says oh and rolls his eyes at me. Everyone stared at me and laughed like little devils. I HATED THAT TEACHER! Thank god he recently got fired! He doesn't even pay attention to when someone's breaking a rule or bullying someone else. He was a nasty cruel devil who was always on his stupid phone/tablet! He was sassy towards me and even expected us to know high school level things. News flash: WE'RE IN MIDDLE SCHOOL! He was totally impatient and just LOVED to snarl at us! But what I despise most about ...more - ShadowSwashy

My homeroom teacher (who is actually a sub of a sub for my real homeroom teacher). Where to begin.

She's always simultaneously trying too hard to pacify the class (if she catches you saying something rude to someone you have to say three nice things about them before the end of the block) and not doing it well enough, always targets specific people, and two things in particular she did are absolutely loathsome:

A while ago, she assigned a study guide for the class to do, but not only did we only have half the information we needed (and she told my friend it was just a worksheet) and gave it to us over the weekend, the other teachers specifically TOLD HER NOT TO GIVE WEEKEND HOMEWORK and she rejected that in front of their faces.

Two weeks later, she assigns a two-sided worksheet for us to do, but we don't know half of what's on it and she TELLS US WE NEED THE TEXTBOOK that we CANNOT TAKE HOME to complete it. Two girls were confused about it and asked her about it, ...more - WonkeyDude98

My teachers hate me so much. They always try to embarrass me in front of the class, give me bad grades, make people think I am a bad kid. And not going to school is illegal. One time a student was chatting to his friends and he had to stay in for lunch. And guess what! My teacher said, you do the crime you do the time. AND that's WHAT PEOPLE SAY IN JAIL! Oh wait, school is jail.

One time I was whispering to my classmate while we were taking a test, the teacher sent me in the hallway and told me that I need to finish the rest of my 6-paged test. For a 5th grader. Wow. Then I was sitting out in the hallway singing Untitled by Simple Plan and my teacher sent me to the office and she told me that I was disturbing the class. - HelloWhyImHere2

19 Can't Use the Bathroom

Kid: can I go the bathroom?
Teacher: NO. WHY didn't YOU GO DURING RECESS?!
Kid: BECAUSE I didn't HAVE TO GO DURING RECESS!

My teachers were so mean we had to hold it in till break

One time in first grade, when the girls were lining up to go in the school building, a girl literally soiled herself in line. Poor girl. AND SHE WAS WEARING A SKIRT! I feel bad for her. Seriously, why can't teachers let kids use the bathroom? Oh, also in third grade, a boy that not a lot of kids in the class liked peed his pants. Even a friend of mine laughed at him and I told her not to. Even my mom peed her pants because her teacher didn't let her go while WATCHING A DANG MOVIE. It's just a movie.

20 No Reward for Hard Work

No matter how much effort the teacher only gives you more useless work. Never a break never a reward, the result is that we learn to use minimal effort to make school and become lazy workers as well as not striving for our dreams.

I remember in school I always tried my best but then I had a bad day and (I don't really want to put it) happened and I got in MORE trouble than if one of the people that are usually bad so then I REALLY lost it and said maybe if those years of pretending to be someone I wasn't just to serve under a complete idiotic society had been worth something I wouldn't have been myself for once which to be fair is what you have been trying to make me do for the past 5 years. I got sent out the class for that so I put my book in the bin and sat down and refused to move

I have a best friend that had trouble staying up doing work and when he got back to school the teacher said he did a terrible job and I think that the teacher can be a stupid jerk sometimes.

No matter how much you finish your work teachers just say 'ok here's another sheet' IT NEVER ENDS!

21 Summer Math Packets

Why should we do stupid work during the summer! Summer is supposed to mean playing outside and sleeping.

Which is why I wrote an anti-Summer school song called 'Purpose of Summer'. - sryanbruen

The purpose of summer is to get away from school, not to bring school to your house. I already have to do a summer project already. GAHH! Summer is made for sleeping in, playing video games, and hanging with besties. Not bringing school home!

I never do summer packets because that teacher can't do anything next year! Screw summer packetss, they are a waste of time after180 days of hell. - l9me

22 Fire Drills

In my school the fire drills are so bad if a real fire happened everyone would die. Here's an example of a fire drill Me Running teacher stop running Me this is what you do during a fire teacher but you have to listen to me Me I would die if I listened to you teacher You said die you're suspended. - nonblock7

In my school fire drills and so bad that we would die. Here's what's happens kids get up and TAKE there phones. Teacher gets us in a lane then waits for us to get quiet. Then we walk out but by the time we would get we would die because the think walking out of a school walking in a line is a good idea because everyone would run but the teachers would yell at us for TRYING not to die!

And the teachers want us to die. We had to start over and go back read then go out to the feels slowly! I mean if it was a real fire we'd die! And the reading was ten minutes! And we went out for an hour then the fire truck came for no reason! I mean a baby could be stuck in a fire smoking house! They stood there for a while and the teachers yelled at me for YAWNING! She said "(my name) stop yawning! People will catch your absent mindedness and we won't have smart kids! " And put me on sad face.

HERE ARE THE REASON WHY I can't NOT STAND Fire drills.Teachers think they are smart like waking Calmly during a fire drill and guess what if there was a real fire we would DIE we have to run for our lives and that sound so annoying and also the annoying girls in my class I’m in 6th grade and guess what they scream And plus who the hell think walking calmly during a fire drill is a good idea our teachers once told my class that go back to the school building and try again I mean if there was a real fire we would die we would run as fast as we can to save our own lives and plus whoever made the rule thinks that walking calmly during a fire drill is just stupid.Signed WhyMeBoy2

23 Teachers Think All Kids are the Same and that We All Learn the Same.

I was forced to do a complicated math method instead of a method I used for my entire life because it was "too easy" I ended up getting zeros on all my test and my parents hate my teacher now

I asked some of my teachers for higher level work, but guess what? They gave me a crap ton of nothing. (To be technical, that would be boat load, which is 126 gallons, but crap ton is fun to say.) HOW ON EARTH ARE TERRIFIED, MONOTONOUS, AND DOUBT VOCABULARY WORDS? Everyone else might have the I.Q. of a rock, but I an the smartest person in my entire school. Can you just kill me already? I always do my homework, always get at least a 95, and can learn and memorize concepts quicker than you average middle-schooler. - Merilille

I am in the highest level of my class, and I am still bored. I have been bored for eight years. I have never failed a class. I want other material. I used to be able to get all the homework for the week and do it all in one night and turn it in the next day. Not anymore. We are not all the same. Isn't that what you teach us? That we're all different? I think I'm right. Why is the school system a gigantic hypocrite?

This one is a biggie. I have Pretty bad ADHD which I never use as an excuse, but it does tend to get in the way. When I was in 6th grade I had a really cool teacher who would help me out and found out the best way to teach me. Now I'm in 9th grade and my math teacher wont even give me help, and he makes his college aid come "help me" which is really just giving me the answers and not helping me at all

24 Stupid Students

Yeah guess what the stupid kids are very mean and very rude I'm a very smart and intelligent person and he pulled me and learning support which is so stupid and all the kids think they're also popular but they really are not there just mean and rude people and they think they're so cool it's extremely annoying I'm sick and tired of all these mean kids who called me names and other people names in the class it's bull crap I want out of this stupid class he did it's literally a who and they think they're so cool it's extremely annoying I'm sick and tired of all these mean kids who called me names and other people names in the class it's bull crap I want out of this stupid class he did it's literally a hellhole

They always ask, "What are we doing again? What are we doing again? What are we doing again? What are we doing again? "

I don't mean to insult students who don't understand concepts, because people learn at their own pace. But I do hate students who don't understand anything AND hold up the entire class for about half an hour in the process.

Oh my gosh I am in 6th grade and there are these ignorant insolent idiots who don't even know how to read, and what's worse is that we have been talked not about Franklin Roosevelt for weeks now and some kids still can't pronounce his name even remotely right. (Fraenk-eelein Roseeeveeeleeet) I can't stand here kids, now I do understand that some kids do have disorders and some just don't understand, but there are just some kids that I call the face of insolence that don't care about anything and are in inclusion math. (Inclusion Math is a math class for kids that are 3rd grade math level or below.) Now I am a straight high a student. (My lowest grade this whole year has been a 98 in science.) I keep asking for higher work but the teachers just say that they have to keep it fair for my peers. Now I have been moved up into 3 honors classes for the smartest kids in the school and I love those classes, but I just dread to go to the other 5 classes.

My school has the ugliest and stupidest students - s10484

That's not very nice. You shouldn't judge their looks or their brain. - PhilTheCorgi

25 Anxiety and Stress

I get stress all the time! Like when the teachers give you a lot of homework and you can't finish it all at home because of how late school ends. Especially because you might have other things to do at home. I wonder if any teacher ever thought about that.

I have that and my teacher scares me always! My mom told her I'm introvert shy and has anxiety! And she always yells at me and puts me with no partner because I'm "dumb witted" "absent minded" "non-white"

School is a load of pressure.

26 Bitchy Teachers

Hey! I live in India too. And, by the way, why did you tell everybody that the teacher called me a bitch, Nina? She did call me a bitch, though. And I feel so angry when I think 'bout that! And, to the guy below me, Nina is a girl, not a guy! And, if you are still wondering who Nina is, she's d one who wrote about a girl being called a bitch! And I'm the girl who was called a bitch. Grr! Please vote 4 this. I hate that teacher! She's a bitch! #burninhell!

I totally agree with the guy below! I live in India too, and boy do we have bitchy teachers.

I hate my yearbook teacher she makes me sit in the back of the class on the floor because there are not enough desks but there are 50 open desks and then she doesn't give me the paper for the project I try to ask her for it but she always says not now not now but then when it's due she yells at me and when I tell her that she didn't give the paper to me she says well you should have asked for it

Very true I suffer with this bitchy teachers

27 Report Cards

Its unfair how report cards make you look bad all because you've done badly in one subject, even if you do well in others. They are so stressful and sometimes its not even your fault when you get them! :'(

Your mother should have been grounded.. To have an eighty in math is terrific.. Your mother is your stress she expects perfection.. And were all are not perfect neither is she... She should be grounded till she is eighty

Back then you got your report card once In a while. That once in a while, You would get grounded and yelled at because of your grades. NOW, you can see your report card everyday through your student portal! So that means that now you have to get yelled at almost everyday!

My parents are Asian and they expect me to get all As on my report cards...

28 Partners Who Don't Pull Their Weight

Okay so I had a science project and we were doing it on Saturday in the morning. One kid in my group said that its to early for him and he has to play video games so I emailed my teacher and luckily he got kicked out of the group. Everything was going okay until the night before it's due and one of my partners said that she can't do one of the slides about the particle theory ( by the way we have been learning the particle theory and how it operates since the first week of school and the school year is halfway over). So I was pretty mad because we assigned everyone work for the project. The worst part of it is that she doesn't do any curricular activities, she was supposed to do it a few days ago and she said she doesn't want to do it because she wants to do other things. By this point I'm ticked off. I ask another guy in my group and he says he's busy but an hour later after he first replies I ask if he's done and he said he's busy. How are you busy when your on your iPad can someone ...more

What's even worse is when they say out loud they hate working with you when they're not doing anything, and then expect you not to take offense like you're some kind of computer. And then they take all the credit.

That's why I don't pick lazy people for my groups (if I even do get to pick) one time though, we had to make a magazine article as a group, and everyone HAD to work... Haha their article sucked so bad, but mine looked like a real one.

I try's my hardest to work with people in my class, but they never let me and make me get in trouble by saying that I did nothing when I was giving such useful research with where it was, but only two people did it, while another classmate and I got in trouble for doing "Nothing" I HATE GROUP PROJECTS

29 "Let's Introduce Ourselves"

This is the way teachers think we'll make friends. It's stupid because if the teacher is too strict, and has a kid who is shy, the teacher will yell at the kid until they say their name. Or if the teacher is too soft this is the way it will go.
Teacher: What's your name, sweetie?
Kid ( quietly): Lenny
Teacher: What?
Kid ( quietly): Lenny!
Teacher: Fanny? Your name is Fanny?
Kid: Lenny!
Teacher: Stanley? Roger? Jonathan? Andrew? Cameron? What is your name?
Kid: IT'S LENNY!
Or kids will make fun of your name, or call you a different name for a long time. Either way, it is annoying and it creates more enemies than friends.

Sigh, at least I'm not American, people will REALLY make fun of my name

I hate these. Every year, no matter what grade you're in, the teacher will make you introduce yourself in front of the class or make you fill out a packet about yourself. The teachers try TOO HARD to make us make friends. What if I don't want to ake friends with these random kids? We just introduce ourselves to get it over with, not to make friends. Before the whole worksheet and lecture concept, I think school was just made to force kids to talk to other random kids. And if I was an adult, I don't think I'd feel comfortable leaving my kid at a random building for like 6 hours with a bunch of random kids and adults. Schools should just stop making us do these things and just let us make friends when we feel like it.

I can barley speak in front of the class for two reasons one I don't like being In the center of attention and two I'm embarrassed of my voice because I'm a girl and I have a really low voice and it sounds really weird and I've had people make fun of it so you know I just don't like when the teacher forces everyone to talk and most of us could care less or really don't want to so yea I hate this one

I also have a deep voice. In fact, some idiot said I deserved to sound like a "woman." I mean, just because I sound like a man doesn't mean I'm a bad person! Gosh! - Powerfulgirl10

We don't do it anymore luckily. But it sucked in younger grades. Once we had to fill out a phone packet to introduce ourselves. It had a picture on a paper of a phone and text bubbles texting to ask "What is your name? ", "How old are you? ", etc. We also had to draw a picture of ourselves on the "selfie" part. Plus in 3rd grade, I had to write about my summer. DO YOU HAVE TO KNOW? - DumbWays2DieFan

30 Getting In Trouble for No Reason

Back in Grade 6, the principal called me down to the office. When I got to the office, he started getting very angry at me. He said that people saw me throwing rocks at a car and I broke a window, I didn't do this and I tried telling him it wasn't me. He thought I was lying and he called my parents, when he called them he told them everything and he said I was trying to lie. I had to walk over to a person's house and apologize to them for breaking their car window with a rock. When I got home my parents yelled at me. They took away my T.V. , video games and all of my stuff. They grounded me for the entire weekend with nothing to do. Turns out, I was the wrong kid, some other kid with the same name as me threw rocks at a car window and the stupid principal got confused. That's why I hated my principal

In 8th grade, I got a lunch detention because the teacher of the period before let us go AFTER the bell rung. It wasn't even just me who was tardy, there were three other kids as well, but apparently, they hadn't had as many tardies as I. I was panicking all day up to lunch, and was actually crying, because this was the first "delinquent" move on my record that I hadn't even caused. I was walking as fast as I could, and that still didn't help. The teacher just didn't give us passes so we wouldn't be late for whatever reason, so the teacher got mad and marked the four of us tardy and sent us to get our passes in the office. This was my fourth, so automatically, I had a lunch detention. Mind you, I didn't actually go to the lunch detention, because someone told me that the teacher who had let us out late had sent an email out, and that if I was supposed to go I would have gotten a slip of paper. Hopefully this doesn't come back to bite me later, as I'm sure it won't look good for me.

In 3rd grade, I had a friend who I passed funny notes back and forth with. Most of them were just funny drawings. Within a few weeks, we got a new girl in the class, and she was extremely rude to me about things. One day the teacher noticed me and my friend passing notes, and she didn't take the notes, but she asked us to stop, and so we did, and never passed any more notes. The notes from that day and previous days were put in a little tote thing on my desk. Everyone had a tote of their own, and they sat at the corner of our desks. About a month after we stopped passing notes, the rude new girl decided to pull a move and took a note out of my tote and said, "Teacher! She's passing notes again! " The note she grabbed was from like the 2nd week of school. The teacher was all like, "What did I tell you about passing notes?! I told you to stop! " and my friend and I got in trouble, and she wouldn't listen to either of us and believed the other girl because she was ...more

31 Stupid Rules

Me: Can I go to the bathroom please?
Teacher: No, didn't you hear NO bathroom breaks during class
Me : fine
**During walking to next class I don't have recess at all**
**goes to bathroom, comes out**
Teacher: why are you late?
Me: I had to go to the bathroom
Teacher: couldn't you have held it in?
Me: yeah but I told the last teacher and he said to go after class
Teacher:Yes but you are late, you will get a detention and don't you ever be late again
Me: But-
Teacher: don't TALK BACK TO ME YOU SHOULD NOT BE LATE YOUR SUSPENDED

Some schools will get us killed when we get outta school like this one. Teachers always say if your in a fight don't fight back walk away or find an adult, yet in reality if someone is hitting you, you wouldn't walk away or no t fight back as they would beat you up and/or kill you and yet in school when you defend yourself you get in trouble school logic

When I was in middle school, the principal thought was a good idea to ban girls from wearing tights because she thought was some kind of sexual thing. Girls end up wearing tights and protesting for three months.

I'm a diabetic too. One time I asked to go to the nurse while a low blood sugar, and the substitute teacher yelled at me and said to sit down. I ended up being about 45 when I got home

33 Length of the Day

You sit for 7 hours and listen to a bunch of useless crap being taught to you. Dumb isn't it?

I agree. A lot of stuff I've been learning is confusing, especially in math, but at least I'm not in school because of summer break, but even when something confuses you, sometimes you still have to learn it. That is why I like learning about dogs, because I love dogs. - PhilTheCorgi

It's long and you have to spend it with people your most likely don't like and half the time you fall asleep.

Why do we have 7 hours at school? If you take away break and lunch time, that's 1 and a half hours you don't have to spend at hell. And why make us be here for that long and teach us stuff we already know that's just plain stupid. At least let us bring our phones so we don't die of boredom.

We sit for most of the day... don't the teachers know we could get ADHD from that! >:/ - FERM1

34 School Starts Too Early

I have to wake up at 5:45 just to ready for school. My parents once said, "If you sleep more your brain has more rest and energy for the test! " How could that even happen if I have 6 hours of sleep!

That is way too early. I'm glad that doesn't happen to me. Imagine you have to get ready at midnight, that would be terrible, and I wouldn't want that. - PhilTheCorgi

Good thing that now I'm in 7th grade and I'm in middle school but in elementary school I had to get up at 5:15 in the morning damnit! - Artattack

I have to wake up at 6-6:30 to go to school and I go to bed a 9:30. But after complaining about being tired my mom made it 8:30-9:00 but being a teenager I don't feel tired at that time because a teenagers biological clock makes them tired later so the need to wake up later but since school averagely starts a 8-8:30 teens don't get 9 hours of sleep so they are zombies in the morning and can miss important information and even some have been in car crashes

You're lucky you get to wake up at 5:45. I have to wake up at 5:30!

35 Racism

I am a Filipino-American( Filipino parents, born and raised in the US). I now go to school in the Philippines. Prior to moving her about 3 months ago, I visited this country four times to visit my relatives. When I visited, I was nothing but amazed with this country. Now being out of the US for a significant period of time, I just feel like a normal, boring Philippine citizen. Now, back to the racism part in my school. FIRST of all, these people are the most rude and ignorant people I have ever met. These people ALWAYS use the N-word. It is like that is literally the only word they know. Let me level, the majority of Filipinos are not subjected to very dark skin. Most of us are just brown or yellow. Calling other people the N-word for no apparent reason is a JERK MOVE. I mean, I know they have colonial mentality, but come on! That's basic stuff! They are always curious about other countries and they stare at you for an uncomfortable amount of time like were aliens. They are so curious ...more

I'm Chinese, what's wrong with being from there? One time I bought a toy car to school, and I got detention! The next day I saw a white girl bring her phone to school. The same teacher that took my car just ignored her. So unfair!

Kids always falsely accuses me of being racist because they want me to be in trouble then when they hear someone being really racist they don't give a care

37 The Whole Class In Detention When Only a Few Did Something

In fifth grade, this happened at least every other day. One kid or two will be talking, and the teacher makes us sit in silence for about thirty minutes. If one kid doesn't do their homework, she'd hold the marked blank sheet up for everyone to see and say something like, "Your grades won't get any better if you don't do your homework! " She restricts us of everything because two knuckleheads won't shut up. If there's going to be a party and two kids got in trouble, she says something along the lines of "Hmm, I don't know. I'm thinking about calling the parents to tell them not to come." And she never calls the parents! She makes us nervous, and never actually goes through with it. My school had a Field Day, where every grade gets to just play games, have a barbecue, have a show, eat ice-cream, and listen to a DJ, so pretty much a free day, usually in June. So, my teacher literally ruined all the times we weren't having fun. She said not to chant, and every other ...more

Yes! This has happened to me a LOT during 4th grade. I am a really good student in school. I am a straight A student. I never have any behavior issues at all. Sometimes, I am quiet, but sometimes, I am also very social. Lunch isn't my favorite part of school, but I still respect lunch. However, goofballs in my lunch group in last school year made all people in my lunch group owe HALF of their recess. I hate getting my self into trouble, so I have extraordinary behavior. (I am in Student Council by the way. ) One time, kids kept being loud. (As usual. ) At first, it is a warning from the teacher who is on duty. If 7 goofballs mess up, then ALL students don't talk for five minutes! Crazy right. If one kid talks because someone bullies them, the victim owes recess in the office, instead of the bully! When we are allowed to talk again, it gets barely loud, so the teacher says " Everyone owes half of their recess... expect for (cross category teachers name) class. At this time, if you ...more

I hate this. The Entire class getting into trouble just 'because 3 idiots can't shut up! This tells me that Teachers can't tell a bad kid from a good one!

IKR! I had a similar situation on the last day of my Biology course before the spring break. What happened is that we were doing a quiz (Kahoot) & one, just ONE person was carrying on. The teacher then threatened to punish them and he completely ignored the teacher. Then the Kahoot gets disbanded & we need to do WRITTEN WORK! Complete BS!

39 Teacher's Pets

MOST ANNOYING THING EVER

You know what's even worse? When the Teacher's pet is your BFF. My best friend is so talkative and she always wants to show up her knowledges and she gets on my nerves. We sit together on class and she always steals my thunder!

Same. My friend acts like she's so intelligent she complained about how she deserved being in High School math. I mean she's my bff and all but she brags and boasts too much and is not modest. - ShadowSwashy

How teachers automatically think that if a guy plays a sport he's like a trouble maker jock! Also teachers also even on the first day like girls better than guy! So sexist!

I felt like sighing when I'm always told to do favors, because it's annoying. It is most likely that everybody gets me to do favors, but even when I feel like sighing, I wouldn't do it right away, because I think it's a little rude. I would only do it in my head. Even when I make a necklace with a card that has rules on it, it wouldn't work. It used to work, but not anymore. Now it became useless because people are still asking for favors and it's so annoying. I've had a dream about people bothering me to ask for favors before, and I need a dream that's more interesting than school. I keep having school dreams and it wouldn't stop. If I don't want to school dreams every night, then I should stop talking about school. - PhilTheCorgi

40 Useless Planner

I hate the planner because it is a waste of useful paper and the fact the at some kids like this girl uses it and I'm like "yeah like the teacher gonna check rose if we write the homework or other stuff that were so "gonna" forget" like in 6th grade where the teachers checked to see if you wrote the homework like we have short term memory loss it is so dumb and it waste paper and even worse trees which give us vital oxygen to survive!

I only use it as a surface to stick reminders on, and never actually open it. Back in eighth grade, the planner was also the 'hall pass' that required a teacher to fill out some table row. Not only did this delay going to the bog, but it also took teachers time, too. It was a hopeless attempt to make kids purchase the $20 dollar planner. I'd rather get in trouble for not having a planner-pass than cough up twenty dollars for a spiral-bound book of bull.

Planners are the most useless thing ever because in pretty sure we can remember we have homework and I'm still confused why some kids use it when the paper used in it a useful tree that is giving us oxygen to live or maybe used for a book NOT a planner that will be thrown away because it's inly use is as a pass but even then you could just use a small sheet of paper

My teacher makes us write what we learned and what we did in class every day and it's like writing an essay because I'm one of those kids who puts too much detail in everything
It drove me to skooicide

41 School Takes Up Most of the Day

Life is short, we cannot spend the majority of the day in hell-on-earth.

All of you are right we never get enough brakes and always get more school days

And after school you get homework so your up till 12 am doing freaked reports and crap!

I wake up at 5:30 AM and go on the bus at 6:47 and go home at 3:00 pm. So basically we have about 5 hours and 30 minutes and have about 9 hours wasted at school. That takes about 70% of your day.

Let's see... Weeks: 2 days off 5 days at school! Months: 2 months off 10 months at school! It's so stupid! Who divided this?! Here's a better one. Weeks: 3 days off 4 days at school. Months: 6 months off 6 months at school! Agreed?

42 Sexist Teachers

Hopefully, not that much innocent students get molested by perverted teachers. I've never had problems like that, but I hear almost every month at least once that a teacher had molested one or more students. Don't they have health classes that teach you not to do that stuff when you're young?! SCHOOL'S FOR TEACHING STUDENTS, NOT RAPING OR MOLESTING THEM TEACHERS! Students come to school to learn, NOT TO GET MOLESTED! (P. S, sorry for the yelling)

My friend had this teacher who would not let girls where sweatshirts in his class, and he also looked down girls shirts! Get that perverted freak out of the school! The principal made him allow girls to wear sweatshirts, BUT HE DIDN"T GET FIRED! I don't go to that school but if I did, I wouldn't go to his class!

In 7th grade my math teacher hated me and my friend. She blamed everything on us and we were the only 2 guys in the class. And even a few of the girls tried to defend us and that didn't even work she was mad at us for no reason a lot. like what did we even do!

One time in 3rd grade, we had these "table groups" or whatever. There was only one girl at a table with 3 boys. She moved her because of her being the only girl. But when there was only one boy at a table, she didn't care. Plus, in the class, there were 10 boys 11 girls. 1 girl moved so 10 boys 10 girls. Then, I switched to the class because of a bully, and it was 11 boys 10 girls for once. But the teacher complained. - DumbWays2DieFan

43 Weekend Homework

It's ironic to think you can get all your work done during the week, because teachers set so much that your free time is completely taken up on the weekend. I struggle to simply watch a late night movie nowadays.

Exactly. I get weekend hw all the time. And when I don't do it teachers scream their heads off. I didn't do it this weekend. What I'm going to do is walk into my home room and say "weekends are for relaxing and earning money, you get money just by being here, we don't. Homework is usually bottom of my concerns over the weekend"

I just don't do my weekend homework. Or my homework at all. I think it's a waste of time and I do it before I get to class. I take mostly honors, I see many people in my class doing their homework under their desks because they actually want to enjoy their nights and weekends, like me.

I don't have it - mathguy37

44 The Pointless Work

Busy work is what fill my every waking moment. All busy work that I have to memorize to pass a test.

Most useless thing to learn "i had to do it in middle school once" is how to do the Macarena. - DumbWays2DieFan

45 Bus Rides

So in 9th grade I had to ride this handicap bus for the morning and afternoon and there was like no seats on the bus and it doesn't help that my stop (a apartment complex) takes up the majority of the seats. Them the bus driver never comes on time. She suppose to be there at 6:30 but tells us to be out at 6:23, so we go out there and she don't comes to like 6:40 or 6:50 and sometimes like 7 when school starts a 7. She would always make us late even for mid terms and finals and she will just make a excuse that she overslept. HOW DO YOU OVERSLEEP WHEN THE FIRST SCHOOL YOU PICK UP IS IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD.At the end of the year she never came to pick us up just leaving us out there.

In the afternoon she was even worse. So for like a small part of the year we had this 'handicap' girl on the bus (which she is not I see her walk like everyday) so everyone had to go to the new area the bus was at. So school ends at 2 and she only gives up 5 minutes to get to the bus that is on the ...more

I think it's safe to say that Grade 4 was the worst year when it comes to riding the bus. My brother and I had to move away in the middle of the school year. First off, our bus driver didn't bother to give us assigned seats (which were necessary) so we had no where to sit. And the kids yelling "Hurry up! " didn't make it any easier. My bus stop was always crowded due to the fact that my stop was an apartment complex. I'm an introvert, so that was one hellish experience. Turns out our bus driver quit a few months before school ended. It would've been easier if she would have at least made it through the year. And this was all because we (the bus riders as a whole) were "loud and obnoxious". As an introvert (as I mentioned earlier) I was one of the quiet ones. If anything, that whole mix up was most of the other kids faults. Our new bus driver was always late, in the morning and in the afternoon. We were usually the last bus to arrive at school. Almost everyday the bus was late. Me and ...more

Riding on the school bus sucks it's terrible it's the worst thing ever honestly I hate it you know every morning I went to sit there until the bell rings which is so damn bored with us on the bus forever I mean it takes such a long time for the bell to ring and we just sit her ass down on the bus and do nothing you know it's extremely boring the bus boring and it's stupid screw the bus and another reason why go socks people are so damn loud honestly I have autism I can help my sensitivity I'm very sensitive to loud noises and it sucks when people start screaming and yelling about it it's like shut up I have autism should be respectful for people have issues don't be rude you know something or so inconsiderate and selfish be nice people and always remember the bus sucks

Kids are annoying on the bus. I hate pop music and that's what the bus driver plays. Kids always say "turn it up". When that's not happening, I'm getting bullied for no reason. I also see girly girls with gross makeup. If a pop song ain't on the radio, then it's a dumb commercial. - DumbWays2DieFan

Why do you hate pop music? I respect your opinion, but I just wanted to know why. - PhilTheCorgi

46 Projects

School projects are a waste of time. The point is for YOU to learn something, but in projects you have to spend more time figuring out how to show what you know and make it pretty and neat than you actually spend learning something.

Also, group projects can be extremely unfair esp. When hard working or at least average kids are grouped with slackers. My friend was once paired (by the teacher) with one of the lowest achieving students to "help the other girl succeed at something" of course she did all the work, but that wasn't enough and they got a D. This caused her grade in the subject (science) to drop from an A to a C-. To make it worse, the teacher then would not sign to allow her to be in an advanced science course in highschool because it was required to have an A or B in middleschool science. Her parents tried to negotiate, but everyone said that if she was barely passing middleschool science, there was no way she could handle highschool advanced science. Eventually, I ...more

I always seem to be paired up with kids who never let me say anything! We had to do power points on ancient Rome last year, and I like to make jokes, and I suggest one of us faint at the introduction of our project when we said " the fall of Rome" an my group lectured me on how dumb of an idea that was and how it was THEIR job to decide what was right. That made me really mad! Am I not part of the group? And I programmed a game on scratch and all of a sudden the game failed, and I was blamed! Vote this on the list!

Projects are stressful, time consuming and a lot of projects don't teach you anything. In 3rd grade I was supposed to make this dumb "mouse house".Basically I had to make a house for this mouse that was in a book we were reading. I had to use all recyclable materials and I had to decorate the inside of it (with recyclable materials). What is the point of that? It's not like someone is going to hire me for making a house for this imaginary "ralph the mouse" and I'm certain it won't help me in college. Projects are also really time consuming (if you want to get a decent grade) and stressful. Once I was up until 11 to work on a dumb project. Because I was not finished, I woke up at three, stressed out and exhausted just to finish the stupid project. I had an assignment where I had to write an essay where I was supposed to explain why something in school should be added or removed. I chose to write about why projects should be removed. Clearly that essay made me learn more than that mouse ...more - Imreallyboredrightnow

As bad as dress-up projects. On the second of March, we had to dress up as my person. My person was Billie Holiday/Eleanora Fagan/Elinore Harris, whatever you call her. I’m currently in 6th grade. We had to do this. In fifth grade, it was the Wax Museum. My last year’s person is Jesse Owens, even though I’m a girl. In fifth grade we had to memorize our lines before we present to the grades below us and other people’s parents. I’m glad my parents didn’t come, or I would feel embarrassed. In junior high, we don’t have to dress up as a famous figure, so HIP-HIP, HOORAY! Y’know... I am a shy person. - HelloWhyImHere2

47 Stalkers

Yea, I agree there is this girl in my school who would not leave me alone. She sneaks around following me every where and listen to my secret conversations. People all it a creepy obsessive crush but I call it stalking.

You know those people who won't stop staring at you in class or those other ones who follow you around at recess? This is what I like to call it. - FluffyBanana

I'm going into 7th grade and back in 6th there was this creep named Keith who sat next to me in math

I had special ed teachers who constantly stalked me in every class

48 Hypocritical Teachers

I'm in 6th grade and my homeroom/ 1st period teacher is a witch. One time, my friend was absent so I used her absent chair to prop my feet up comfortably. Then, the witch says that if we put our feet up that we will get a mark and that it's disrespectful. She said that WHILE SHE HAD HER FEET ON A STUDENT CHAIR. So I thought about that and put my feet up again. She yanked the chair from under my feet (which stunned me a bit), and yelled at me. I said, "YOU had your feet up." The room went silent for a bit and then she was all like "EXCUSE ME?! HOW DARE YOU! " My mark said "correction of teacher, attempting to argue" I was praised by the other students and got a high five today by a girl I don't know. Heheh

My teacher says we aren't allowed to eat lunch when she does, which is way earlier than our actual lunch time. So she sits in class eating food she got from subway or someplace. In elementary school we were allowed to have snacks. It was helpful when you miss breakfast and not have to wait until 2:00 to eat food. My teacher has a long lunch everyday for like, the whole period.

I got to a charter school and when we walk in at the beginning of the day, we sit down against the walls/lockers and wait until we can go to our lockers (at eight o'clock. ) Now, in the car line I get that we have to listen for our names to be called, and we can't talk. But in the morning all we do is walk our butts in, sit down, and wait. The teachers talk, but we can't even though there's nothing to listen for. They act like we aren't people, and we're dogs that are barking really loud or something... - ShyGuySwag

The school people are hypocrites themselves. I don't know if I'm using hypocrite correctly, but ill tell u a story of what school does. They say not to change yourself, but they always try to change you with things like P.E. are we allowed to change ourselves or not? - DumbWays2DieFan

49 It Lasts 8 Hours

To the person who wants to kill them: they're probably dead.

Who the hell divided this thing

Whoever decided school to last this long must not really like kids

My high school lasts 8 hours and 11 minutes long (7:30 AM-2:41 PM)
