Top Ten Reasons Why School Is Unnecessary


The Top Ten

To the person who claimed we need school to read and write: I went to Preschool when I was four years old. We did not learn to do either of those things in Preschool, and if we did in Kindergarten then I don't remember. I taught myself. Literally. By the time I was four years old, I was reading books TO my parents rather than having them read to me, I could recognize short words individually, I knew every single letter of the alphabet and what sounds they made, and I knew how to write. Not very well, but I knew how to write. I was bored when we were learning to read and write because I already knew all of that stuff. If any of you truly believe you need school to be successful, then so be it, I can and will respect your opinion; I don't think that school is completely unnecessary either. However, children are perfectly capable of learning these things themselves, and we do not need to be taught by school systems, that are mostly outdated and failing anyway. If we can learn an entire ...more

I'm in 9th grade now, but since 7th grade I've taught myself everything! Even in the smaller grades they didn't teach they, they're, their and my teachers literally fall asleep in class and don't teach us at all. We never use the things we learn in real life, and I'm constantly being bullied and they will not do anything about it.

Not as fatal? I agree that shootings are awful, but if you are pointing a gun at yourself, it is much worse. As much for as the people who love you. - keycha1n

You spend more time in school than at your own home. About 8 hours in school every monday through friday for 9 months every year until the 12th grade with a short azz three month summer break. - TheMainReason

18 Irrelevant subjects

I'm surprised people are giving such meaningless reasons? The main reason why school is terrible is because nothing relevant is being taught. I don't need to know about inverse variation, chemistry, how to say "I wanna go to the beach" in Spanish, or what an appositive is.
Adults forget it almost instantly after they finish school, it's a god d-mn waste of time and it gives me a headache that people think school is actually helping students. It's not.

Highschool should be more like college, but freshman year, students should immediately decide on a career as well as back up jobs and study accordingly, instead of students who want to be, say an artist, but they are being forced to learn things that have nothing to do with such. How about how to own your own business? To be your own boss? How to do taxes? And more importantly learn skills essential to your career BEFORE college so you have even MORE experience.

it's bs and I wanna throw up
