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.

Yes, you do learn, but a big chunk of it is totally worthless. Seriously some of the things you learn do not help ANYONE. Piles are more interesting than them.

That is why I Like school

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

Yeah, that's a good reason, but what if you are an outcast? What if you don't have friends? You see other people copy the homework of their friends and you're here, having to do your homework to study on your own, just to realize that others have better grades than yours.
Having no friends means you're eating alone at lunch every single day. Having no friends means you're bored during pauses. Having no friends doesn't mean you're bullied, but having no friends means that everyone else in the school will see you as an outcast, and thus no one will talk to you.
If you're happy with being alone for more than 5 years, I don't know how you think this way. Having no friends at school is horrible. - MaxPap

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

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!

I my school there is a huge load of clubs you can choose from and you can join a lot of inter-school competitions. And not to say working on projects with random classmates. They make good memories. - MChkflaguard_Yt

5 School turns you into a harder worker

More like gives you depression for life.

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

If by that you mean makes you lazier and shortens your attention span - Midevilnight

6 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?

For some schools the rules are ridiculous, these are an exception. But for most the rules are sensible. That's OK - MChkflaguard_Yt

7 You get out 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.

Your just Sitting on your *ss All day - schoolsucks

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. - higgsboson2142

Hey, this is true...

Or, Summer becomes something you hate because school isn't around.

It's a bkessing

10 It's fun to watch kids get in trouble

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 person who added this to the list is right, it's fun to watch kids get in trouble, but I feel so bad for the kid in trouble. - XxDJPartyGirl1034xX

Y'know, except when it's you getting in trouble because some jackass doesn't like you and will do anything they possibly can to get you in trouble. Why does this list even exist, there are tons more reasons to hate school than not - Midevilnight

12 People in poorer countries don't necessarily get it
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.

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

I want to be a scientist in medicine. Chemistry and biology in school actually helps me to become one - MChkflaguard_Yt

19 They make your life depressing

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

There comes the irony - MChkflaguard_Yt

That's not good - schoolsucks

But that's bad. - CinderpeltandCinderheart

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. - CinderpeltandCinderheart
