Reasons Why the Modern School System Sucks

The modern school system formed today is pure garbage. Here's ten reasons why it is garbage in general. If I missed a reason feel free to add it.

The Top Ten

1 Learning irrelevant or pointless subjects that don't matter

You don't need crap like Isotopes, Slope intercept or even Algebra for that matter.

I understand some people wanna be scientists, chemists, historians, website makers, etc. so in that case, make it optional and make it only for the kids who want to be those or who want to "learn" them. - DumbWays2DieFan

2 The curriculum that teachers teach is based off of a lesson plan assigned by the government

I think it would better if it was based off what the teacher wanted to teach the students but I can't stop the government so... it probably won't change anytime soon.

Stupid government - DumbWays2DieFan

3 All of the tests that are required get ridiculous and stress out the teachers just as much as the students

Yes. Just about dumb stuff. Would be better if it was about paying taxes or something useful. - DumbWays2DieFan

Mainly with Istep or NWEA.

4 The homework assigned is based on subjects so forgettable that students would probably forget about it in a week

Homework should be banned it's basically slavery. - DumbWays2DieFan

Honestly this just downright explains itself.

5 It's not helpful at all

"The mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell." No one cares. - DumbWays2DieFan

It's pretty useless and pathetic to be honest.

6 It stresses out students more than it helps them

Yeah. My dad thinks he stresses more at work than we do at school but I doubt it. - DumbWays2DieFan

I thinkk this is quite self explantory.

7 It's all about what the government wants students to learn rather then what the students want to learn

Which I'll add isn't great at all.

I don't wanna learn geography, history, etc. I wanna learn how to pay taxes, how to get insurance, etc. instead of your uselessness. - DumbWays2DieFan

8 It destroys creativity

True art class has almost ruined one of my favorite hobbies for me - Ihateschool

Yeah. It would be boring it we were ALL barehead. - DumbWays2DieFan

It destroys creativity pretty fast.

Especially with all the pointless Dress Code BS - christangrant

9 It makes students not want to learn

I want to learn only useful things. I can also Google up the life cycle of a fly if I want to know, which I don't. - DumbWays2DieFan

Especially considering how annoying it's gotten.

10 Too many pointless assessments via Istep or NWEA

Not to mention these assessments aren't helpful.

Just asking you "what does this Latin word mean? " or something. - DumbWays2DieFan

The Contenders

11 They think people will learn by listening to someone talk for 20 minutes

We can google up 99% of the stuff they teach us. I'll only do it for the useful things though. - DumbWays2DieFan

This is why I hate school. - 445956

Trust me it's worst at my school... the classes drag on for 70 minutes or in otherwords a hour and 10 minutes.

12 It feels like the same thing happens every day

I swear when I go to School the days are always feel like the same day as before and yes this includes days with tests. - christangrant

My school never changes the math subjects anymore. Always graphing and I swear it's more scientific than math sometimes.

13 Students are learning more from the internet than from teachers

So we shouldn't have to get up early and stress over tests. We can just get out google - DumbWays2DieFan

Which is one hell of accomplishment.

14 It's too strict
15 It feels like prison

Only difference is that prison gives you free food and in school, you pay for that gross crap. - DumbWays2DieFan
