Top Ten Reasons Why School Is UnnecessaryTheMainReason
The Top Ten
One thing wrong with the top ten reasons on this list:
1. Unrequired- Your parents get arrested if they don't send you to school by a certain age, so yeah, it is required. (And homeschool is still school, TheMainReason, just so you know)
2. Early awakenings- That sounds like a medieval movie title or something, also school is the same length no matter what, so giving you an extra hour in the morning would just mean one less hour after school
3. Social awkwardness- How do you make any friends if you don't meet people?
4. Dangerous- Yeah, blame school shootings on our president, not the schools.
5. Long hours- You can't make hours shorter, OK? If you mean school is too long, well, if it was shorter, you'd just have more days of school, which I'm certain is also on this list
6. Unhealthy food- Since when? Are salad bars just so unhealthy that the entire existence of school is completely unnecessary?
7. Teaches you life lessons you could have learned elsewhere- Sure, ...more - TheInsomniac
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capable of learning these things themselves, and we do not need to be taught by school systems, that are mostly outdated and failing anyway.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
No one likes going to school. But it would be a lot better than being an uneducated, jobless, homeless bum. Because that can happen if you don't go to school. - 445956
What is wrong with you school is important16 Comments
I HATE waking up early in the morning. I'm not a morning person at all. I'm a night bird.
Seriously, what kid would go to bed late because of homework and wake up too early?
Ok I agree I have to get up at 6: 15 every day - GleamingShadow

Umm... this is completely wrong. How can you meet friends if you don't meet people?
What if you don't get along with other people. - TheMainReason
You'll being noticed and being bullied. That's all. I know, I did. We must be strong. - 09ShamsulBahriel
Okay reasons that school can be dangerous:
Bully's That Beat Kids Up
Non-Called For Dangerous Punishments
VERY HARMFUL TEACHERS WHO GIVE HARMFUL PUNISHMENTS LIKE PADDLING CHILDREN TILL THERE BUTT HURTS SO BAD!
(Maybe If In Intruder Drill) Kidnappers
So yeah, school could be pretty dangerous in some ways
BEWARE OF THE FLYING SAUSAGE! (Oh wait that was Grange Hill)
I don't have to worry about fires because there is a fire station beside my school
Just get rid of the law - Bear Arms and then no shootings. The last time a school shooting happened in UK (Scotland) in the 90s.7 Comments
97% Mean Teachers
2% Nice Teachers

I read on this list about teachers being tired, well actually in my old school one teacher was a pedo.
Some are evil
Some teachers are mean to you but are NICE TO OTHERS I mean what?2 Comments
That's one of the good things

yes gross - Hummingbirdf
Breakfast is literally ALL SUGAR!3 Comments
I agree, long hours are the worst
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
That leaves lot more time to spend at home. Better study your math - Billyv
I agree with this list. We spended like 8 hours and we STLL doing homework. We don't even get time to break.
They actually don't teach you life lessons barely or at all.
I have a laptop I can learn there
I learnd some stuff they taught me in school from a cat no joke - thunderclanrocks
My social studies teacher is super strict and just because a kid wasn't on what they were supposed to be on they got sent to the principal's office I hate her
We already knew it though
My high school special ed teacher is so strict that once she got mad at me when I said the words “horse” and “Disney”.
Home is the best place in the world. - TheMainReason
Unless you're being abused.
How isn’t this first? Bullies are literally the worst thing about school. - Userguy44
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
Kind of goes with danger, but their not as fatal. - TheMainReason
At my school we had head lice! In kindergarten everyone who sat next to me had it. A kid was gone for a moth and had to get his head shaved. I am surprised that we did not get it in my TK class.
Flu, Ebola, the Cold, STD's, just a couple of the things that are transferred publicly. Another good reason to be homeschooled instead of actually going to the actual school. - TheMainReason
KingSlayer93316 gym class is one of the most useful classes they teach you ways to do sports and sports make you fit and if your not fit then you become obese and nobody wants to marry you then you die from obesity.
Social studies; school: u need 2 know history! Me: but...it already hap
*cough* Everything that was taught in Gym class *cough* - KingSlayer93316
I wont need atomic number of neon.I also do not need to know what ligaments in my knee if there are any.7 Comments
They share too much boring stuff like Algebra and Calculus but Algebra is Needed but not Calculus. The School stands for Six/Seven Cruel Hours Of Our Lives and homework stands for Half of my energy wasted on random knowledge and the last Math stands for Mental Abuse To Human. - retardedkid
It all starts in 7th Grade - 23windomt
Stress is a big one I'm literally slowly dying
It's a pop quiz.2 Comments
'You can't eat in class' DO THEY WANT US TO STARVE? 'You can't go to the toilet in class' DO THEY WANT US THE PISS OUR PANTS AND GET BULLIED? 'No fidgeting or you get detention' MOST OF US NEED TO FIDGET OR GET OFF TASK TO CONCENTRATE IN THIS BORING SCHOOL! 'Kids, you have to do this equation and blah blah blah...' WHAT TEACHERS DON'T REALISE IS THEY HAVE TO MAKE SCHOOL FUN IF THEY WANT KIDS TO LEARN - grumpycat
Teachers who constantly gets the good kids in trouble. In school, I have always been a good, kid, but some teachers constantly treat me like I'm the bad kid!
Why Even bother going to school if you're just gonna forget it? I will have better luck living off the land than having a real job and paying bill's and taxes. (also at least 50% of what we learn we don't use in real life)
That's definitely going to happen every time summer vacation starts.
My teacher says "get out your workbooks and turn to page blah blah and don't forget to show work and I have to tutor a blah bha hurry ba
Gym class. - Misfire
"Let there be light"
"In the beginning"
Noah take two of every kind of every animal onto a wooden ark.
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
Gym class. Need I say more? - KingSlayer93316
I mean they stopped calling cooking classes "Home Economics" when I was around 11/12 years old.
Learning is dehumanising kids today but butt! It gets worse for example get out your books turn to page 34 solve problem 3 blah blah blah they teach obedience but don't they teach that at church. Also it gets ugly... atop talking, stop it! Don't say that you basted only adults swear. God
Unless the school sends u home
This is epic! I really agree By James, 5 years old
Exactly. You know my school doesn't allow regular book bags. we have to buy string bags and we have to do it once a month cause the bags break. I just hold all my stuff now, Smh
Except math. Because for me when that is math. It is just so wrong - mathguy37
Social studies?! Really!
When the states wanted to teach Creationism. When they already had Religious Education. (R.E.)
They teaching the most unnecessary stuff like who gonna think about similes and metaphors in the future.
The only thing I really need is math for calculating my money
Not if you want a diploma - GleamingShadow
What the title says. - Lucy1402
It honestly is.
School and prison have similar rules. For example, they both have times set to eat, drink (unless you have a water bottle or something), and use the bathroom (in some cases).
I AGREE! Work is clearly bad for kids. - Raichu
My opinion is that school especially mine takes out 19percent more imagination than youtube.
