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?

Dear teachers,

I don't care about literature, I don't care about algebra, I don't care about PE, I don't care about history (only computer history, I don't care about RE, I don't care about geography, I don't care about poetry, I don't care about half of the math stuff I learn, and so on.

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.

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!

My maths teacher once flipped my buddy off.

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

I have had a lot of very nice and caring teachers, but only a few who don’t care.

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

I go to school for 7 hours straight and get to spend like 2 hours with my dad

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

This is actually normal.

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

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

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

So tell a teacher!

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.

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

You think I care or listen to what we learn its worthless

I forget some of what my teachers say in minutes.

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

They were students once as well. They understand

That's why they give so much homework

Often this is true but most of the teachers try their best :)

8 School causes a lot of stress

I know it's a silent killer!

And rewards as well.


They stress ua so much to well on a test about USELESS THINGS.

9 It is very cool these days to be stupid

I like how nobody commented on this item
EDIT: Took you guys long enough to comment on it

I mean, just look at our President!

Yes I no haw 2 spelling now

10 Students won't need to worry about popularity

They will worry more about being unsocial

The Newcomers

? Schools don’t let kids do the work they want to do
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.

My english teacher said this "you spend 60% of your childhood with your classmates" but all of them are annoying.

It's very stressful

12 Lunch tastes better at home

I meant the freshness of home food.

You can't always bring home lunch

Well that is true for my school.

Then bring home lunch!

13 It's a waste of time

We wake up at the crack of dawn just sit in a building for 6-8 hours having to learn the same and see the same people over and over again. And a huge chunk of the things we learn is useless unless you want to join those professions. And when we come home, we get 3-6 hours of work.

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.

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

14 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

Yeah it is sometimes.

15 School keeps you away from being a kid

I want to enjoy being a kid not waste my life at school.

It kills your childhood.

16 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.

School should be seven days.

Once you get in middle school it’s like you will never have any fun, but at least there’s dances.

2 days school, and five days weekends

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

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

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

18 School can cause depression

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

I was depressed because of school for many years.

You can become suicidal too

19 Sometimes kids don't feel safe at school

Yeah I have been bullied by lots of people.

20 Students don't get enough sleep
21 It teaches as much immortality as it does discipline
22 There are stinky washrooms at school
