Top Ten Reasons Kids Hate School


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

Here are the reasons I CANNOT STAND homework. I am in the 8th grade and homework is my number 1 stress of school. There is not enough time to get it all done. I spend 1-3 plus hours a day doing homework. I do not understand how we can spend time with family, have some free time to eat or play a video game, or do anything really. The teachers assign homework every day, including weekends, and breaks such as Winter and Spring break. Currently I have 2 packets for History, 4 packets (2 pages each) in math, Two science poster projects, and a video essay for math, all due Monday and Tuesday. They where all assigned on Friday. I DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH TIME. A few of the assignments where given on Thursday and I stayed up all night doing them and still haven't finished. I was late to class and got in trouble. Also my science class assigns a 2 page essay due every other week. Not to mention I have 3 projects that are due next week that I haven't even had time to start. I am so stressed out I ...more

I agree! My school doesn't want the students to get stressed, so they gave us only Small work. When I get home, I do my homework early, and play games for the rest of the day. And on weekends, I have fun with my family and friends. - WilsonAsmara

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

NEEDS TO BE NUMBER ONE. Girls in my class sarcastically cat call and humiliate me, kids beat me up, get me into trouble for stuff I didn't do, and gang up on me, emotionally abusing me until I'm on the verge of tears. If I even attempt to fight back I'll get kicked in the gut, laughed at, or insulted even more badly. Two kids once hatched a successful plan to get me in trouble, and then knowing that I couldn't do anything to them, snitched on me, went up to my house to humiliate me, surrounded my desk and pushed it against the wall with me between the 2 surfaces, cracked my knuckles, walked up to me and emotionally abused me until I was on the verge of tears. My pathetic excuse of a teacher shipped me with another girl in my class and got the whole class to laugh at me. Girls cat called me sarcastically and humilated me in the hallways. Everyday at lunch, 4 boys would insult me until I felt like crying, and would occasionally throw things at me. I was so scared to be out in the open ...more

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

That should be #2 behind bullying because every time I have no school I wake up at 5AM with pleasure, but when there is school I feel really tired and don't wanna wake up, wish it started at 10AM

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.

Deal with it you bratty children

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

Once my science teacher- who me and everyone else hated- gave me a zero on a science lab about potential energy. First of all I got stuck with the most annoying group ever- a popular kid who thought he was good at everything and judged everyone based on their popularity, an aggressive girl who got in trouble a-lot but probably should have gotten in more trouble- the only reason she didn't was because she was a girl. These people were in every single class with me too. There was also this dumb kid who was in compacted math with me, he probably should have been in regular, and he made fun of my speech problem (I stutter a-lot and mispronounce things) We didn't do very well with the kinetic energy lab and then I was absent- because I didn't want to go to school and get more homework from sexist teachers who overreact to everything most boys do and underreact to everything most girls do. Fortunately though the teachers didn't like the popular kids very much, except for a couple of kids in ...more - spirit49

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

Cursing is normal now a days at school, even the nerdiest kids curse now, this is why I'm glad I'm being homeschooled, social life? I. don't. Care. - FallenBlaze

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

I had a History teacher in 7th grade that yells at the top of her lungs in front of the whole class because we've got students that keep ruining the whole thing for us! I feel bad for the students that have to deal with her yelling nearly every single day! Let's describe this teacher! She humiliates her students, even swore once, and ripped the papers during a test 2 times! She gets away with all of her yelling! at least she heardly gives homework! Not to mention, every student here at my school complains about her, that they want to sue her and get her fired! To add on to the confusion of the problem, my Special Ed English teacher and the assistant teacher said that she will be the nicest teacher that we will ever have! Well, so yelling at students and cursing at them makes them a good teacher? No! Not only that, I once even cried 2 times in front of the whole class a few minutes after her frightening and stormy lecture, because it was so scary that I could not even handle this ...more - SansicTale5

8 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!

I hate it! Some exams had some questions that me and my friends didn't know but we answered them anyways. I had no choice but to accept the failing grade, that is why exams should not be a thing anymore. - BigFatNoob

9 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 have an opposite problem...
The teachers explain what to do for most of the class, and we only get a few minutes to actually do something! - neehawgamer

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.

It's useless! It shames kids more than making them fitter! It encourages bullying and shames the unathletic kids. And I hated group activities because my teammates yelled at me when I screwed up. I almost cried because of that! Like come on! It's no big deal if I screw up! It's just a game! Not the Olympics! I'm trying my best! Yelling at your team won't help at all you tryhards!

10 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.

At my school, you are FORCED to stay in the cafeteria the entire 20-minute period. 20 minutes is not enough time to eat, and a fifth of that time is used getting to lunch, opening your lunchbox, and opening the wrappers. And our school lunch is made of gross, processed meat. Once when I tried to hide away in the bathroom, I was pulled out of there and forced to sit back down. You have to sit down the entire time, and the seats are CRAMMED. There are 28 students and 2 tables. They need to purchase larger tables or purchase more. Some children in my class don't eat the cafeteria food because of its repulsiveness. Once I stood up, but the lunch monitor told me to sit down. I stood up when he wasn't looking, but he saw me and yelled out "Do you want to go to the office? You can stand all you want in there! " I sat back down and remained quiet. Once I bought a really good school lunch, but then I sat with my friends, but the annoying kid in the class sat right next to me. He touched my ...more - BasicSean

11 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

I hate popular girls, there's one in my school. She thinks she's so awesome because she has an instagram and always posts sexual pictures of herself and says things just for attention. She hangs out with a big group of other popular girls, they do nothing but talk crap about others and making up stories about being suicidal when they just want sympathy

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!

This is the biggest reason I hate school.
I actually never had any friends in my life, not kidding (Well I have one friend which had the same problems I had. I never met him in real life, but he doesn't chat with me now since he got friends)
It makes me feel so lonely and sad when I see everyone chatting, laughting and being happy and all that stuff. They always push me aside and I am always the last one to be chosen for a group or team. I always try to be nice and do anything anyone wants. I write their homework and projects, lend them pens. But nobody ever lets me borrow their pen!
It basically made my whole life harder because I became really shy and anxious around people and have really weird reactions when someone talks to me (It's really hard to control) so they make fun of me! But I feel really good whenever they do that because they give me attention and I realised I am extremely desperate for attention, good or bad.

I kind of wrote some unnecessary things, but ...more

13 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 -_-

Why can't they make it appealing to students

14 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 absolutely HATE pressure in school. Its like, you don't do one crummy piece of homework? NO REDOS! You get sick? Well, you should've squeezed your homework between trying not to throw up and throwing up. Didn't come to school for family purposes? Well, why didn't you do the essay at your great grandmas funeral? Oh, and you decided to use a homework pass on your birthday? You got it last trimester, so it doesn't work now. All of that pressure just builds one on top of the other, about the homework you didn't do and the late essay and the pop quiz, causes a lot of students to break. Oh, and family life? You don't have it in your teachers eyes. So it doesn't matter that you were babysitting your sisters, you should've redone the test while trying to keep your sister from breaking that case. Family life and school life just causes my back to break from that weight on my shoulders.(I am the oldest child in my family, so all of these things happened to me before.)

15 Teachers

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

Uh teachers will just non-stop talk their unfair unsanitary I'd be alright with them if they didn't talk so much I'd be able to learn but nope it's talk talk talk

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.

So basically...we do 2 hours of homework, send it to our math teacher and she doesn't GIVE A CARE IN THE WORLD TO MARK IT! She is also very strict, she glares at us all and makes us do all of the work, not just any work, HARD work! She's terrible! - Coreforce

16 No Reward for Hard Work

They say always say the reward for hard work is knowledge even though the teachers do not teach you stuff in the real world

You spend at the least 6 hours of school working non-stop and switching from class to class. And what do you get guess what you get homework we can't even apply most of the stuff we learn to reality. - Zozo_Sweetiepie

There doesn't have to be rewards, only honor - BigFatNoob

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.

17 Can't Use the Bathroom

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

Lol ima be homeschooled I don't need no idiotic teacher telling me what I gotta do - FallenBlaze

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

So in school after we ate, we would go to math and we can't go use the bathroom... I'm SORRY I can't DIGEST FOOD IN A SECOND AND HAVE TO USE THE BATHROOM IMMEDIATELY

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. Oh and here's one thing: Maybe you can't go when something important is happening.

18 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

A girl in 5th grade could literally say the moon landing happened in the 1800's and she would get the question right, while I (true story) accidentally wrote wolfs instead on wolves and she took my grade waaay down. Not to mention she threatened to send me to the office because my hair was "too long". even though it just barely went over the ear. - Stalin

19 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

20 Test Taking

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

Why the hell to tests exist even tough the teacher knows what you done on the work?!

When I was in 1grade I failed because it said 345 +a three digit number that I can't remember

I'm in 8th grade and we had an English benchmark and some of the questions as which of the 4 words is similar to the word in the question and some of are so easy and here's one of them. Which word is similar to evacuating and I'm like BRUH it's leaving what is this a 5th grade benchmark not 8th grade

21 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)
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

22 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

There's one of the main screw ups in our education system! (Not to start debates) Yayy! It's kind of obvious not all maybe 600 kids in a school learn through a tasteless lecture. I'm glad we are improving in those ways, but we have a while to go before every kid can learn easily. - LynxTemper

In high school I was placed in a special ed class. In that class the teacher taught them basic stuff like counting coins, telling time, and math that 2 and 3 yr olds know like 1+1=2. I am very intelligent, and despite that, she FORCED me to learn the easy math.

I had a few friends that prefers harder work as well.

Uggh I hate when teachers say "if I can do it, you can do it" those are lies

23 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

These were the best, I remember my classmates were pissing off my math teacher and then he was yelling and right there the alarm went. God has spoken - FallenBlaze

I also hate when the teacher says to go behind them, like if were the last class, were gonna die - FallenBlaze

Seriously, I would run in a fire no matter what those little oxygen theives tell me. I care more about my own life than rules. (Luckily no teacher has done this and I hope they all have the sense to let us run for our lives! ) - LynxTemper

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

25 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

26 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.

Okay so once we had a huge project about science. We had to be put in groups of 3 or 4. My group consisted of me, this girl, and a boy who never helped. I told them that tell had to help. The girl said she'd help cut. But she never did cut. And don't even ask about the boy. Anyway, I did all the work and they both flirted and talked. I eventually told the teacher everything and they got in trouble. So we got our own grades. I got an A, the girl got a D because she only got the supplies and cut some things. And the boy got an F. Wow.

27 Stupid Rules

This has to be one of the things I hate about my School. My School are just so bad in my opinion because the rules in my class is that if we forgot to bring our books or break the School rules (Fighting in class, running in class, swearing, etc), we have to pay money for it, and for me, I'm the type of person who always forgot easily so I often forgot to bring my books and have to pay money for it. Right now, I'm trying to be sneaky by not making everyone knows that I forgot to bring my books and that I have to pay money because honestly, I don't support that, and I don't think that's avoiding the rules because that kind of rules is not good, it will make you think that money is the solution to every problem. For me, I feel like if we forgot to bring books or break the School rules, we should just get send outside of class or get our score minused. - Hoenn4Ever

My second elementary school banned running at recess. - Cyri

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-

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

28 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

Exactly, I didn't feel like sleeping to early, I like to sleep at over 9pm and I will still be tired, God please add 1 or 2 night hours of sleep - BigFatNoob

29 Racism

People don't have to like anyone else's race, religion, etc. But the teacher needs to ban racism, ban discrimination and teach their students to get along with others, whether they like it or not.

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 German. It really sucks because I've been called a Nazi. - neehawgamer

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...

We don't need them! We have an online website which shows our homework! We're not forced to fill them. But at home I was once threatened to get slapped in the face if I don't use my dumb planner. Like what.

Some teachers can't plan their lessons hence repeating the same thing over and over again it gets so Boring

The special ed teachers at my high school made me use my planner, but not the regular ed teachers.

Planners should be optional. Some kids really have organization issues and need them, but that's the minority! - neehawgamer

33 "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?
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.

Teachers always do this. Every year. Every class. It's silly. Why must we? Some people are shy. Not everyone wants to give an introduction speech. - LynxTemper

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

35 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)

Basically lunch time: "Girls on the left and boys on the right! "
At home: me: *playing with boys or brother*

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!

36 Weekend Homework

I honestly hate homework but not on the School days, but those that are usually on weekends or break time because:
1. Weekends or breaks is suppose to be a time where you relax and try not to do School stuffs, but instead, they give you tons of homework
2. Is it seriously not enough for School to give us homework when we have 7 hours of studying? Plus, the subjects in my School are usually 2 hours long, for most - Hoenn4Ever

I don't have it - mathguy37

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.

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

School should be a lot shorter

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.

39 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?

41 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

44 Getting In Trouble for No Reason

One time at my school, one student was bullying another student and the teacher told that student to come to the office and she also told me to come to the office as well when I didn't even do anything. And once, somebody threw a chair on purpose and one of the chair legs hit my head and I was crying due to the pain. Luckily, I didn't get a concussion. Then the teacher told me stop crying, you are not a baby. And my teacher also said that I am too old to be crying over little things. She said it's OK for babies and toddlers to cry over small things because they don't understand yet. She said that the only time we should cry is if we get hurt. But I did get hurt. The chair hit my head and it hurt. So what's wrong with crying for that reason?! Also that student got expelled a long time ago. When I was in grade 10, I injured my knee. I had to walk with crutches and it took a long time to get to different places. And other students helped me with my stuff which was nice. And because it ...more

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 a summer program, two kids I know the names of were picking on me. So eventually, a teacher came up to me and said the bad guy was ME! What? I didn't do anything wrong! (if I remember) However, my 2nd-grade teacher came up and defended me and said that the two kids were the bad guys. I survived, but still technically means I got in trouble for no reason.

Another day, we played this game where we knock people's pins down in 2 teams, I was on the far right, and one of my biggest archenemies ever was on my left. Someone threw a ball, and it moved very very slowly to my archenemy's pin and knocked it over, she didn't notice. I claimed it was knocked over but she thought I knocked it over and called a teacher (which she always did when we picked a fight) and the teacher said she could reset it and I got in trouble. - hoppingicon

45 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!

My high school special ed teacher is EL DIABLO!

-She is RACIST AS HELL (constantly picks on me and NEVER the other kids. I was THE ONLY ASIAN in her class)
-I got in trouble for STUPID reasons, including saying "horse" and "Disney"
-She makes up stupid rules! For example, once she forced us to run the school's track RIGHT AFTER WE JUST ATE LUNCH. She wants us to vomit! (We didn't because we were smart enough to disobey her dumb rules)

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

46 Teacher's Pets


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

My English teacher has this award she gives every month to 1 English student in each of her classes. It's (supposed to be) for people who are extremely kind hearted and are leaders. Guess what? Two of the meanest girls in my grade got it because they are pets. One girl literally changed my life for being so amazing. I've never seen her do anything that even a dumb person would think is sort of mean. She hasn't even gotten a smile from the teacher. It's honestly kind of sad, so many undeserving awards given out...

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!

47 Students That Have Anger Issues

I've never met a kid with anger issues, but I HAVE met a girl who pretended she had anger issues. Her name was Justice and she lied to me and said she had a short temper and she got really mad at people when they messed with her. I teased her a lot, even though it was a risk. She just laughed every time and teased me back. Her backpack had Twilight Sparkle on it and her favorite color was pink so I wasn't really falling for her act. She giggled a LOT. I sat by her at lunch one day and I asked her if she really DID have anger issues. She pretended to get all mad and yelled in my face. Then I said she was just pretending and I pointed out how she was lying. She got all mad and she said that she would prove it to me. My friends and I watched her and she punched an innocent little boy in the face a whole bunch of times and he got a bloody nose. Justice got suspended. What a b-word.

Ohhh the fifth grade flashbacks. There was this one kid. They had caused plenty of violent incidents, one requiring us to move to a different class while it was being resolved. People may think I have a bit of a temper, but prepare for my fifth grade life! (Luckily I didn't interfere) - LynxTemper

I have anger issues (because of school, duh) but I don't let it out because I'm extremely quiet in my class. - Lucy1402

In high school there was a girl in my special ed class who would hit/punch the wall sometimes.

48 Heavy Books

I didn't know students could be used as pack mules. - raspberry714

Heavy bags and no lockers at my school. Teachers then yell at us when we complain that our backs hurt. Don't you think it's a problem when EVERY STUDENT complains about backache?

Sometimes, it just turns out that I have to walk to school and walk back on some days. I also have to carry a few textbooks in my bag and it is just so heavy. I just wish they had PDF versions of the textbooks so I can look at them on my laptop rather than lugging all my books every day. Then it will be easier to walk to school and I don't have to worry about back pain and bad posture.

When you can't consentrate on your work because your back hurts and you tell the teacher they all just say stop complaining as if it doesn't matter and I have to carry my books and my laptop in my bag and my back get so sore by the end of the day.

50 Bus Rides

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

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

In Brazil My Home Country The People Don't Goes To School With Bus The School Bus Are Vans.
