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.

2 Some teachers don't care about the students

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

My maths teacher once flipped my buddy off.

3 Students could spend more time with their family

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

This is a very true point, I want more quality time with my grandmother

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

4 Some students have a hard time

This is actually normal.

Bullying exists and

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.

So tell a teacher!

6 Most students forget what they learn

Yes it did right to me. I learnt physics and chemistry in high school but when in University I took a liberal arts major (social studies), and I literally don't remember all the things from those subjects which I have learnt for almost 2 years.

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

7 School causes a lot of stress

I know it's a silent killer!

And rewards as well.

8 Teachers don't understand the students

They were students once as well. They understand

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

This is true, as not all of them know what we might be going through

9 Students won't need to worry about popularity
10 It is very cool these days to be stupid

Indeed I truly agree to this impressive argument and you have my fullest respect.

I mean, just look at our President!

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

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.

Well that is true for my school.

School food is terrible

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.

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.

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

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

This is true in many cases.

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.

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

School should be seven days.

17 School can cause depression

I was depressed because of school for many years.

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

18 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?

Yep true, only 2 or 3 will like to do something in the useless classes

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

This is indeed true.

20 Sometimes kids don't feel safe at school

Yeah I have been bullied by lots of people.

21 People spend so much of their lives doing school and homework we don't have enough time to do what we enjoy
22 Some people don't want to learn

I didn't want to relearn shapes so i did algebra instead, the work i got from the new teachers at vine is too easy for me and i think it's time for some hard work.

Some people just don't want to learn, so be it. If they don't want to put in the work to get a decent job, let them pay the price. School wastes too many resources on them anyways.

I came up with this. Thanks.

23 Students don't get enough sleep
24 Students don't get paid
25 It teaches as much immortality as it does discipline
