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

Excuse me? I learn way more in books, and most of the stuff we learn in school are pointless. Want to learn something at home? Ask your parents or friends (which you can find in other places than school). This list is just terrible like the person who made it.

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

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.

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

But you can make friends outside school- and if you meet them through a club/group, online or other places where you can express a certain interest, you are more likely to find someone with similar interests- and you can meet more people while not being stuck in school, you aren't just friends with the random people you were forced into a class with. - Flamesofsilver

Lemme translate the title for you: School is where you make bullies who wouldn't leave you alone because they think they are so great or something...In life, we have many other choices to make friends other than school, you can make friends online, outside,...those two are just for example, there are many other ways you can make friends. School friends are usually not that great, they are competive, anger by points, bullies, mean,...not the exact type of friend you would want in your friend list, wouldn't you?

3 Education qualifies you for a larger variety of occupations

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

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

4 Memories

You mean HORRIBLE memories? One time there was a horrible bully who called me fatty and stupid, but I gave him a beating he'd never forget, and I got in TROUBLE for it. I'm a rebel now. And you shouldn't get in trouble for just slightly hurting someone. I had a feeling he was just overreacting. And the teachers put my hands behind my back like they were about to arrest me! RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE BULLY! Do you think that was not embarrassing? The memories of stressing about tests, being bullied, being bored, ah, good memories. NOT. The only truly good memories are going on field trips, really. Or maybe recess. The only time when your free.

I have many memories at middle school. Memories I'd like to forget. Like that time I was tied to a tree for 2 hours. Oh god... No... STOP! NO!

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

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.

5 School turns you into a harder worker

More like gives you depression for life.

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

It actually made a lot of people lazier because school cares more about how well you remember rather than understanding and enjoying learning.

That's why its Stressful

6 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.

HA! No! You sit on your butt all day. Totally going out more often.

7 You can become disciplined

Their kind of discipline teaches us to become rebels.

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

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

Yeah and the other students are such role models that you end up in prison

8 Summer becomes a miracle instead of just a season

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.

Hey, this is true...

This is the only accurate item on the list.

this is the only one I agree with

9 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.

Hey this is true too

10 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 >

I get in trouble so much but I never get caught some other random person does lol

Only the kids who I hate. Luckily, someone in my class who bullies everyone in the class always gets in trouble. He gets so many minutes taken off his recess - CinderpeltandCinderheart

The Contenders

11 Getting up so early

YAAY! Wake up before you want to and go to hell! I totally want that

Why the heck is this thing on the list?

YAAAY! I get to get up at 4 IN THE MORNING to go to Prison in Hell!

This is a bad thing again

12 People in poorer countries don't necessarily get it

At least the parents can teach the kids

13 You don't experience culture shock as much
14 Helps you get the jobs you actually want

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.

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

Most of the stuff we learn in school is pointless

You want to get a decent job? Go to school. I don't know why people say it's pointless, without school you would get nowhere in life. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

15 School will make you stressed for life

Stressing is bad so what is your point?

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

Which stressing is bad

Cause stress is why school is good. HOORAY STRESS - Midevilnight

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

I have literally no idea what this says

That's specific - Midevilnight

17 Lots of Homework

YAY! I got 27 pounds of homework! It's gonna keep me up almost all night and only get 30 mins of sleep!

I'm not even in a regular school, but my parents give me so much homework that less than half of the time between my dinner and bedtime is free time for me (one night I got only 5 minutes on the computer because I had so much homework).

Not this reason, I hate HOMEWORK!

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

18 They make your life depressing

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

There comes the irony - MChkflaguard_Yt

This a bad thing

But that's bad. - CinderpeltandCinderheart

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

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

My mum's excuse too

20 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.

21 Failing exams challenge you

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.

Exams is one of the reasons I honestly like school.

22 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?

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

...said no one ever.

23 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

24 Homework is just using your brain.

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

It's still bad

Its not even just school..colleges have it.

25 Teachers have to work too.
