Top 10 Reasons Why Kids Shouldn't Hate School

Why do so many children complain about school!? Yeah, it can get annoying, but that's where you LEARN!

The Top Ten

1 You learn

Excuse me

I know I need a better opinion but what the hell? Things you learn in school are pointless! I hate school, you don't. Yeah, it prepares you for adult life but I still hate it. Settled? - EpicJake

Yeah, you learn to sleep.

Yeah, but name one useful thing you learn from school besides grammar and spelling? You can't, come up with one can you? That's because, half of the garbage you learn in school is useless I've learned more from YouTube than I have from school and that's sad.

Yeah so what can you sos?
don't know what sos means it mean save our souls

2 School is where you make friends

So school is the only place you can make friends?

I know you can make friends outside school--I have, online and in camp, and I know the struggle of being socially awkward/anxious/too shy/quiet to try to make new friends, but if I had never gone to school, I wouldn't have made any of my friends. You see them every five days of the week (unless they're sick or left you behind on vacation), and even if you get into arguments, get jealous, envious, yell at each other, real friends won't leave so easily. True friends don't just break off. (Unless you truly do fall out.) Like I mentioned, you can make friends a lot of places besides school, but one of the only reasons why a lot of people enjoy school is because of their friends, including me.

True. You sure you would make friends outside of school? Would you just go up to Walmart and tell some kid "I needa socialize I'll call you my friend"? I don't think so. I have fun with the drama at my school. - Jamble

Yup it teaches you what true friendship is all about- True friendship is telling the teacher that your friend told you he's depressed so they can call his parents, and a psychiatrist will put him on drugs that will turn him into a mindless zombie incapable of feeling depressed. So what if he doesn't talk to you again, that just shows how much a brat he is. He'll thank you when he's older

Sarcasm people, it does wonders

3 School turns you into a harder worker

It makes you work TOO HARD

By causing stress and depression because of an overload of homework Or the focus on memorization instead of actually understanding the concepts - Randomator

More like gives you depression for life.

True - Jamble

4 Education qualifies you for a larger variety of occupations

Yeah but there’s a lot of useless things that the government requires you to learn - Randomator

Haha, last comment- but we don't choose what we learn, and because we learn a lot of stuff not related to our future career, we tend to forget stuff that isn't practical to the extent where many adults who don't have complicated maths as a part of their career, have the maths knowledge of ~ grade 5 level.
Plus, all that rubbish about 'mental maths, because you won't have a calculator with you every day' is untrue- we have smartphones with calculators. - Flamesofsilver

5 Memories

Most school memories are From things like sports games and dances and clubs. Not the actual sitting in class learning useless things part - Randomator

HAHA, mostly mediocre memories that aren't good at all.

About me getting bullied. - XxembermasterxX

It depends on the memory. For me, one of mine was watching Disney's Hercules in 7th grade. That was a GOOD memory. Another one of them was constantly getting in trouble for no reason by my high school special ed teacher. Those were VERY BAD memories.

6 It's fun to watch kids get in trouble

At my school, it was lunch time and a grade 1 kid peed his pants and he got yelled at by the teacher. The teacher was asking him, "Where's the washroom? ", Then after a while, another student put a wet floor sign and the janitor mopped it up. Then one of the class helpers took that kid to the bathroom. Luckily he brought an extra change of clothes. Then another helper told the teacher that somebody should watch this child. When the incident happened, the teacher told us not to laugh about it and then me and my friend counted five kids that laughed. I was also laughing because when I see someone else laughing it makes me laugh. Then the teacher was asking me "Why are you laughing? It's not a laughing matter. You know better than that." It's just that laughter is contagious. Then I faked the situation and said that I was laughing about a comedy show and not about the incident.

Especially if they got you in trouble with the teacher for no reason in the first place >

When they deserve it yes. - Userguy44

Yes - Jamble

7 You get out more often

Er what I know you sit down all the time.
But it means kids get outside more often.

Really, I thought School most of the time was you sitting on your bum all day

The average outside time in school for just elemetery school is 15-30 min. EVEN PRISON GETS MORE OUTSIDE TIME.

Yeah, for 5 minutes, then you go inside and sit on your *ss all day. - 3DG20

8 Summer becomes a miracle instead of just a season

true - Jamble

This is the only accurate item on the list. - 3DG20

Summer becomes a celebration when changing from one grade to another. If you were to just sit at home, all day long, the seasons wouldn't really matter much, and all things would kind of just string together. - higgsboson2142

Hey, this is true...

9 Helps you get the jobs you actually want

How is having Geometry, shoved down my throat USEFUL to become a ACTOR?

I want to be an actress, musician, YouTuber or author. School helps with none of that. - 3DG20

And some stuff you learn at school you won't need in your job.

I do kind of want to be an Animal Studier but I learn about animals from books instead of school. That means school doesn't help me with jobs.

10 You can become disciplined

Their kind of discipline teaches us to become rebels.

You don't become disciplined- you are forced to conform.

This is just a terrible reason

Saying the word "gun" gets you suspended... yay discipline?


The Contenders

11 You discover hidden talents

Hey look I can find X and read some useless Shakespeare plays! - Randomator

Hey look at that! Who knew you were such a good writer? Or tennis player? Or trombonist? - higgsboson2142

Ah, yes. I discovered my hidden talent of doing all my homework at the last minute.

Not true

12 Because many people can't enjoy the privilege of education

Not a excuse

Or how many poor kids in america go to very underfunded schools - Henry1000

My mom's favourite thing to say when I complain about school.

It's true. Do research idiots. - MChkflaguard_Yt

13 Watch kids get tackled because they throw Gatorade bottles at another kid.

I have literally no idea what this says

That's specific - Midevilnight

14 Every teacher isn't cruel.

*COFF* YES THEY ARE *COFF* - Midevilnight

15 People in poorer countries don't necessarily get it

At least the parents can teach the kids

16 You don't experience culture shock as much
17 School will teach you how to deal with obnoxious people

The best way is to be as obnoxious as possible, and if you can't do that learn the art of invisibility.( see you can't say school never taught you anything cool. Invisibility, that's pretty rad! )
Unfortunately students who don't learn one of these arts tend to arrive at school with guns and attempt to kill everyone. Damon you side affects!

Sarcasm people, it does wonders

You mean by suspending them or having them sit in the office for an hour? Yeah, that's how to deal with bullies outside of school. - CinderpeltandCinderheart

18 Failing exams challenge you

This is a bad thing

In school your worth is measured by your grades. If you aren't a straight A student, you're paid little to no mind. If I get a bad grade on a quiz or assignment it destroys me, not challenges me. It's horrifically stressful -- your entire future seems to rest on that very transcript you're building, and it feels like if you don't get an A your life is over and you'll never get into college. I've known people, including myself, who are only happy when they are not at school.
School doesn't teach, it's not about learning -- it's in human nature to be curious and learn. School is about memorization and preparing for a test, only to let you forget the information you "learned" just a week later. It's not and never has been about learning.

Oh, and I have heard of cases of teens committing suicide just because of bad grades.

No, no they don't. It actually discourages you.

19 They make your life depressing

This a bad thing

That's bad, what's the point of this

There comes the irony - MChkflaguard_Yt

But that's bad. - CinderpeltandCinderheart

20 You get exercise

LOL. Only in PE - Randomator

For you sporty ones there and those one who aren't
No matter lesson or no You play with friends

21 Homework is just using your brain.

Yeah exactly! So you can reiterate all the useless information that you learned - Randomator

Its not even just school..colleges have it.

It's still bad

22 You’re there for 7 hours
23 School will make you stressed for life

And this is another bad thing

That’s another bad thing. - 3DG20

Stressing is bad so what is your point?

Stressing is bad though. Are you saying you want us to suffer? - CinderpeltandCinderheart

24 Getting up so early

This is a bad thing again

That’s a bad thing. - Userguy44

Why the heck is this thing on the list?

No, that’s a reason kids should hate school. - 3DG20

25 Gives you something to do during the day

I have much better things to do

I could have done so much with my life if school didn't exist. I could have wrote a successful blog, read books and gain information at my own pace. I could have learned how to love learning. I could have played outside and made friends that aren't obnoxious. In my childhood, Video Games might not have been necessary. But since friends that I did have were inside doing homework, I would have had to retreat and waste my thumbs on Pokemon.

I think I had a better relationship with the Pokemon in the Gen 4 games, than my parents (who constantly yelled at me) or my teachers (Who always punished me by telling my parents about things that I didn't even know I did, Maybe a classmate decided to tattle on me just to get me in trouble. Maybe I actually did something wrong. I was a gullible child back then.) The Pokemon were silent, and they accepted me. They didn't constantly yell at me. They were just pieces of Data, but to me, they were like family.

Yeah but I’d rather exercise and do something productive - Randomator

But I don't want to do something boring... - CinderpeltandCinderheart

26 Lots of Homework

That is also a reason students hate school, so great job on being a troll. - 3DG20

This is another bad thing

Oh yay an additional 2-3 hours of stress every day as if school wasn't enough! Good luck doing anything extracurricular and keeping good grades - Randomator

Homework makes you stressed, so it isn't technically a good thing. - Userguy44

27 School is where you become civilized

School teaches you morals and various basic stuff you will need. Math helps you to do trades and run business, language helps you to communicate, and science to understand the world. How can you become a civilized person without these? - MChkflaguard_Yt

I swear most school haters end up uncivilized, if you like school, ypu grow up as a nice, understanding person

...said no one ever.

28 Childhood is short. School is part of childhood.
29 Teachers have to work too.
30 Primary school we have playtime, Secondary school we have school break.
31 Year 6 finally you can sit on the school benches.
32 You get holidays that you don't get in work.
33 It was originally for religion, just for boys.

That's good? - Midevilnight

34 No one has to repeat a year in the UK

Don't mind me I’m Just a U.S citizen passing by. This item is completely irrelevant to me - Randomator

35 You can get into a fight with another kid
36 It's easier than a job.

Detention is better than losing your job.

37 Detention is better than being fired.
38 There may be some funny students
