Top 10 Things That Would Make School AwesomeLike most of you, I'm still in school, and I agree, it sucks. But what would make school, dare I say it, good? Unfortunately, we can only imagine. I still have 5 years to go, and you probably have a few too. So, what do you think will make school awesome?
Just imagine having a rough school day to just come home to a 12 inch tall stack of worksheets and textbooks. Well you probably don't need to imagine because I'm pretty sure 99.999 percent of you have had this happen to you before. Schools say you need a good nights sleep, but who can do that when they have to complete a forest's worth of flattened trees stamped with printer vomit using graphite on a stick. I bet if one day, homework was banned for some reason, we could save thousands of trees. Also, millions of students would have the eight hours of sleep they deserve.
Then we could spend our time as we please! Imagine this, you have been stuck in a classroom all day and you can finally get out and enjoy your time.
Bringing schoolwork home? Home is where you're supposed to get a break from school and see your family and have fun. Homework gets in the way and is unnecessary. They say its to see what you learned but can't they just see the next day, or on a quiz/test? Anything that involves school should be done at school, NOT AT HOME! The only reason to do anything at home is maybe a big project or something. MAYBE.
Homework is crucial sometimes, but when all the different teachers lumber tones of homework onto you at the same time, it can be tough to manage. I think that if the teachers can come up with some sort of homework system then homework could be great. Until then I hate it.
Bullies are worse than homework. You never know! What if your homework is something awesome like listening to rap or eating pizza?
Apparently it's an internet stereotype to hate school.
Me? I like school for most of the reasons you don't.
Bullying is just a nuisance that makes school a prison. Getting rid of it will be the best.
They should all be expelled, it would make decent peoples lives a hell of a lot better.
Of course! I'm sure you would learn as much in 3 days as you would in five days a week, because you just learn the same thing over and over again, plus it gives you more time to finish homework!
Either less days a week, or having the day start later. If we had less days, 3 would be good. If we were getting less hours, 10 am would be a good time to start. More time to get ready and wake up.
Only time I had less days of school in a week was in preschool. When I lived in Minnesota back in first grade, Monday was a part of our weekend.
If there is one thing we complain about, it's we go to school to often. I mean, 5 days a week? 3 would be a HUGE improvement.
"Hi, I'm Bruno Madrigal, and today, we're going to fortune tell everyone who has done something bad to Lisa in the school! No homework, all of the homework will be lit on fire for my vision"
For most of us, this would be a pretty bad idea. Unless your favorite fictional character is Batman or something, you're not gonna learn much. I mean, as much as I think Connor Lassiter is a cool character, he's kind of on the stupid side. I'd learn how to fire a gun before I'd learn anything I would need to know if I want a good job. Terrible idea.
Scooby Doo as my teacher would be awesome because he gets to teach us how to be a better detective as well as getting chased by different ghosts and monsters would be way past cool!
I would love if Firestar or Bluestar from Warriors were my teachers. Yes, I know they are cats, but I think they would be able to teach me a lot of useful stuff about life.
The food at my school is fine, but the prices are stupidly big. A panini costs £2.40, and a sandwich or water costs £1.20. Also they give out these flavoured waters with chemicals in them. My favourite day in terns of food is Friday because they serve fish and chips, YUM!
The food in my secondary school is terrible because they lack variety and they don't have a lot of vegetarian food. The queues are long and I don't want to wait half an hour for a greasy pizza.
Our hamburgers tasted like crap. And I HATED Taco Tuesday. Seriously, what is WRONG with people who don't even know how to do tacos? I wished they hired a Mexican who knew how to cook.
The reason school food is disgusting is because the school hires cheap-ass chefs that don't know what they're doing, therefore produce crappy food.
I agree and disagree. I loathe P.E and exercise at times because of the countless injuries of them (I am very sensitive to pain) and me getting tired after like 30 seconds, and the fact that some people died whilst exercising. But at the same time, it's healthy. For me, as long as it is swimming, basketball, volleyball, and capture the flag, P.E is passable for me, but it's still annoying.
For kids that go home, go on their electronics, and eat chips and junk? Maybe this shouldn't apply to them. P.E. stands for Physical Education... it gives exercise because it's important to stay healthy and fit. Maybe they do sports outside of school, some kids. They probably do, but not all of them. Plus, even for them it's extra and that's good if they don't overdo themselves. I disagree.
Oh my... how great it would be! My P.E classes are mostly team sports and I hate them so much! I suck at every team sport, I'm always picked last and the main thing that is always making me nervous at school is how my teammates will rage at me for being bad at sports today. And I'm still more physically active outside of school! And then I can have fun at least...
Yeah, but only for the kids who get exercise outside of school. If there are kids who go home and watch T.V. while eating twinkies on the couch, they should have to do PE to get exercise. If kids do a sport (at least 2 times a week), they shouldn't have to do PE.
It would give us an extra hour to sleep and get ready and I could have a proper breakfast every day. Currently I only get a bite for breakfast every day because there is not enough time for a proper breakfast.
In my country, schools normally start at 7 AM. I have to wake up at half past six, and it tires me a lot, then we all get sleepy and air-headed in class and find it difficult to focus or think anything. Forcing students to wake up that early is extremely counterproductive, actually.
School is opened at 8:50 for me
But many kids are still a bit tired and unready so it's better if we started a bit later like 11:05-12:20 and have sleepover nights on a certain day or two! (We had sleepover nights in kindergarten <3 got my pajama, lunch and own bed at kindergarten I will miss going there ;-
I normally wake up at, like, 7am or something and then I am forced to get up early and do my daily crap before going to school.
Kids spend SO much time studying and working super hard. They should get a reward to get out be able to see something without realizing they're learning too. In class, they usually get tired of all the working, and soon their hand is tired, their eyelids are heavy, and they're struggling a lot.
Field trips could definitely help with that, I think. They could explore new things while learning at the same time and expressing themselves with what they want to learn and their style. Then the teacher and everyone will know, and it'll be easier for them all.
Exactly. Kids spend to much time trapped in hell (school). It's unhealthy and hurts you're mind. Children need more time outdoors and more fresh air. They always spend time memorizing and stressing, and that's not how you learn. You need to let kids have fun and and let their creativity show, you can't make them hide their thoughts and creativeness.
Yeah! Every day man! And not just dumb, boring ones where everyone in the back of the bus say, " Oh my god, how many more minutes till we get to this place. " Like um... Sea World, Universal, Velocity, Rebounderz, Disney World, Atlantis, Magic Kingdom, camping in Gourd Island, etc
All I did on my last field trip was catch some Z's. But field trips are really educational and most provide hands on structures like Kennedy Space Center.
Field trips make the school year interesting. It gives students an opportunity to learn things outside of the school premises (but still within the school's control). Also, it encourages the students to have some sort of adventure.
Stop saying 'no tests.' Usually teachers will give you proper amount of time, if they aren't then tell your mom or something so she can talk to her. Tests are important so teachers know what you know and where to place you so you can learn best. How would you like it if you got put at something you learned years ago? And it was way too easy? Or you got something super hard? Less tests, I do agree on that. But none? I don't. Some of these things we need in order for school to work. Without school, you don't learn anything. I mean if school never existed. Everyone would be quite dumb, wouldn't they? Respect parts of school because you'll later use a lot of it.
I was in math class, doing ratios. We had been doing ratios for about forever, and out of the blue, my math teacher says, "Time for a test.'' Like, what!?! We aren't even prepared because you wasted your time teaching us something we already know!
Nobody likes tests, and you often don't have much time to study. More time between tests is less stressful, gives you more time to learn, and more time to study.
Why do they have to have so many tests! Well, semester exams and final exams, I'm fine with them. But normal tests are just...No!
What, you would like more Persecution and Excruciation?! That's the thing that I hate in schools; if you're good, it's not learning, and if you're bad, you get criticised over almost nothing! P.E. is a pointless dictatorship that should be eradicated.
My p.e teacher is awesome! She does everything awesomely and lets my girlfriend and I hold hands and kiss and we do tons of awesome stuff like basketball tournaments everyday!
Yeah! I love sports! Playing soccer with the dudes is fun! Basketball and running and football are awesome! We should have more PE! It also keeps us active!
I don't really like Gym Class, but I did like playing Champion Ball, but that was only because there was a substitute teacher!
Less hours per day would mean more time for us to enjoy things we love and to finish homework. Imagine if you have a foot of sheets of homework to complete within a night or you lose your lunch to detention.
Make school start at like ten or ten thirty so people don't fall asleep in class and are more alert during the long day.
I have 9 hours and a half everyday, plus a lot of homework. Pretty annoying.
My school is over 8 hours long. The time should be cut in half to make 4. That would be so much better
If the kids did pay attention in class, then the teacher wouldn't get mad at us and then they wouldn't punish the whole class. where I come from, the teachers can tell, even when a kid says, "wanna sprite cranberry? '
Schools actually DO have psychologists, but they don't try hard enough sometimes...
Thank Jesus my teachers are amazing in high school!
You don't even have to go to school for more than 7 hours, and you get a lunch and if you're young a recess (and if you're older, a free period). The school year is less than all the vacation you get. Stop complaining.
30 minutes to see your friends and talk about stuff isn't long enough. Then it's back off to learning and probably not seeing your friends until the day is over
Most breaks in my school are 3-4 days long. A break from school should at least be a week long at most.
I only get 15 minutes for break and 25 minutes for lunch. 25 + 15 is 40, so I only get 40 minutes of free time/ day.
That would help a lot. The music could help soothe and calm you if you're getting ready for a test, or bring the energy level a bit lower after a break. When you're working, though, you wouldn't be able to hear the teacher. But yeah, that seems good at the moment!
They would think it's a distraction, but it really helps keep the brain going. I would love it if school allows it.
Yeah definitely! I hope this goes in the top ten soon, this could be in the top 3 but it'll be a stretch the way this is going that would make school very fun
I love the chance to listen to my ipoh and focus on my test, but NOO, the school treats my stuff as there stuff and now because of that, I got a C on my writing test.
Yeah, In 1990 in the United States, congress passed the gun-free school zones act, so it's already a rule in all schools.
Isn't this rule common in all schools?
This is already a rule.
That's an obvious rule..
No boring classes. In Australia in Melbourne at Princess hill primary school, my teacher almost only read books and let us have free time, we hardly hard to work at all. We had a Pajama day where everyone had to come in their pajama and it was just amazing, and very easy.
Best teacher ever: my teacher I used to have gave us candy for solving questions that Were as easy as pie, she's really fun, she tells us stories what happened to her once, and more. Her class was like, the room of fun and awesome
A classteaching how to play video games would be much better than a boring History class. Or like Roald Dahl said, he wanted a Chocolate Class instead of studying History.
Games, Videos, and more guest speakers is pretty good, anything to get out of those boring classes.
Four months of summer vacation?! I can't imagine how depressed I would get from lack of productivity and stimulation! I'd say, get rid of summer vacation entirely, and give me a week and a half off of school each month. The needed amount of break each time school gets a bit old. That's about 132 days off of school a year. Throw in a week and a half extra for Christmas, summer, spring, and Thanksgiving break, which is 132+44=176 365-176=189 days of school a year. Which is about how much we have now. But come on, eleven days off a month! Spreading it out like that would be much preferred to me, because summer vacations always get me bored one month in. This is a much more realistic fix, rather than just cutting out school entirely.
In England we only have 6 weeks -.-
Who CARES, we should have more time off! One PROJECT in school here takes 8 weeks on average. We get 2 less than that to spend with our family. It's unfair. This really would make a dream school.
Summer break should be four months. Christmas break should be a month. Thanksgiving break should be two weeks. Spring break should be a month and two weeks
All of the teacher work days are taken in my county when it snows. It means Febraury, March, and April have no days off; not one until spring break. I NEED a few for my sanity.
All the time my school's toilets stink of wee and there is plenty of graffiti in the cubicles. Once there were some girls who thought it would be a good idea to flush a ton of toilet paper down a toilet and flood the place.
Who else can relate?
Hire more janitors
Yes. YES. This is one of the biggest problems of the education system.
In my school there is a thing called quick maths that only focuses on your Grades
Oh yes. Where I live I usually start school in late July. That's way too early. Most students would not be thinking of school at that time. I wish I started school in August or early September like all the other school districts in the United States do. - anonygirl
Woo more time to see my crush in hot clothes...
November to February are the school months!
Me and my friends would agree.
I know "less tests" is already an option, but I feel like this is its own thing.
That would be The Backyardigans would become my classmates.
Icarus from Disney's Hercules would make a great classmate!
Luigi being in my class? He would be my best friend!
Befriending Harry Potter, yes please.
