Top Ten Reasons Why School Should Be Optional


The Top Ten

1 Not everything you learn is necessary


I don't dislike school masked. I made this list since I was surprised no one made something like this already. I feel bad for those who do dislike school. Also, there are reasons why I gave this lit a more positive title. Haven't you noticed it wasn't titled "Top ten reasons why school sucks" or anything like that? - Oliveleaf

Yeah, but what about what IS important? Think about it: If it was optional, many couldn't know how to sum or even speak correctly. The educational system does need change, but this is not the way to go. - Martinglez

I think school should be mandatory up to at least 5th grade so students can learn the core subjects, then students should be able to choose whether or not they want to continue school.

2 Some teachers don't care about the students

A teacher who only taught me last year completely forgotten me! She didn't even recognise me!

Jusge a world idea meant for a purpose because 3 people. 10/10 logic - ProPanda

3 Students could spend more time with their family

Well as a child/young adult you spend more time at school than home )=

Unless you go to a boarding school (and there's probably a reason for that), school isn't 24/7 - ProPanda

4 Some students have a hard time

There are programs for this situation - ProPanda

This is actually normal. - Powerfulgirl10


5 There are school bullies

Beat their asses. Go hard or go home. That's how we handled things out where I chill. Funny thing is that our parents approve of it - Mcgillacuddy

Either fight back, tell a teacher, or ignore those pricks. - Powerfulgirl10

So tell a teacher! - ProPanda

If you have a group then you won't be bullied - zxm

6 Most students forget what they learn

It's so true I'm in a swedish school and I forget a lot of thing. they try to force oss to learn more thing than anyone can then they gives you a test on somthing else

It is true because I'm a 10th grader and I don't remember half of the things they tell me because its not important to me like if school was on topic we enjoyed or got our attention then maybe we would all want to go to school.

Well that's their problem - ProPanda

Not always - zxm

7 School causes a lot of stress

I know it's a silent killer!


It put us kid under a lot of it and the shuv a lot of thing in or heads thanking that were going to remember it

And rewards as well. - ProPanda

8 Teachers don't understand the students

Most of them care about money, its like why does it matter if students learnt it or not - zxm

They were students once as well. They understand - ProPanda

No, not at all they don't even understand that some students are different in developing - RoseCandyMusic

9 It is very cool these days to be stupid

I mean, just look at our President!

I like how nobody commented on this item - Mcgillacuddy

Yes I no haw 2 spelling now

10 Students won't need to worry about popularity

They will worry more about being unsocial - ProPanda

The Contenders

11 People spend a significant amount of their lives at school

Homework is too much with little time to actual finish them, unless you want to spend time of your sleep time to do it.

12 Lunch tastes better at home

Then bring home lunch! - ProPanda

I meant the freshness of home food. - Oliveleaf

Well that is true for my school. - Powerfulgirl10

Who made this list?

13 It's a waste of time

I hate how you spend 5 days a week and 6 hours a day at school and then you have homework for 3 hours. Sometimes you even have homework during weekends
When you're supost to be relaxing and/or doing stuff you actually enjoy

Seriously, 8 hours in a god damned class, summarizing and rewriting and relearning the same stuff? Some of which we don't need? No thanks.

We could be spending time eating chocolate. Seriously.

School is boring torture with a lot of crabby teachers yakking at you all day

14 It's all work and no play.

Instead of five days at school and two weekend days, there should be four days of school and three weekend days. - BeatlesFan1964

2 days school, and five days weekends - zxm

School should be seven days.

15 We are forced to take classes we know we won't major in

Other subjects you might not do in high school is taught and we should have all subjects or basically school optional

Like I hate how boring Social Studies is so obviously I won't major in it, why am I forced to take it?

I wish it was optional but I’m forced to go everyday

16 School is similar to sending students to prison for 7-8 hours

This was posted by a nun that chokes on a banana on google just search up nun and you will see me

17 School keeps you away from being a kid


18 School can cause depression

You can become suicidal too

Studies show that kids who are too pressured about school do consider suicide
