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.

That is true everything they teach you you don't actually need to get certain jobs

3 Students could spend more time with their family

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

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

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 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 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

8 It is very cool these days to be stupid

I like how nobody commented on this item - Mcgillacuddy

I mean, just look at our President!

Yes I no haw 2 spelling now

9 School causes a lot of stress

And students forget half of what they learned because of it. - LightningBlade

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
12 Lunch tastes better at home

I meant the freshness of home food. - Oliveleaf

Then bring home lunch! - ProPanda

Well that is true for my school. - Powerfulgirl10

Who made this list?

13 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.

14 It's a waste of time

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.
