Top 10 Things That Would Make School Awesome

Like 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?
The Top Ten
1 No Homework

Just imagine having a rough school day, only to 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 night's 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, we could save thousands of trees. Also, millions of students would have the eight hours of sleep they deserve.

2 No Bullies

Bullies are worse than homework. You never know! What if your homework is something awesome like listening to rap or eating pizza?

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 people's lives a hell of a lot better.

3 Fewer Days a Week

Of course! I'm sure you would learn as much in three 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 fewer days a week, or having the day start later. If we had fewer days, three would be good.

If we were getting fewer hours, 10 am would be a good time to start. More time to get ready and wake up.

If there is one thing we complain about, it's we go to school too often. I mean, 5 days a week? 3 would be a HUGE improvement.

4 Your Favorite Fictional Character as Your Teacher

Scooby-Doo as my teacher would be awesome because he could teach us how to be better detectives. 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.

"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."

5 Better Food

The food in my secondary school is terrible because they lack variety and 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.

The reason school food is disgusting is that the school hires cheap chefs who don't know what they're doing. Therefore, they produce crappy food.

I always check my food to make sure they aren't feeding us poison. Plus, when we have cheeseburgers, they put the slice of cheese on the bread, making the bun all wet, shiny, and wrinkled up.

6 Fewer Tests

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!

7 Later Start Time

In my country, schools normally start at 7 AM. I have to wake up at half past six, and it tires me a lot. We all get sleepy and air-headed in class and find it difficult to focus or think about anything.

Forcing students to wake up that early is extremely counterproductive.

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.

School opens 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. I got my pajamas, lunch, and own bed at kindergarten. I will miss going there.

8 No P.E.

I agree and disagree. I loathe P.E. and exercise at times because of the countless injuries (I am very sensitive to pain) and me getting tired after like 30 seconds, and the fact that some people have died whilst exercising.

But at the same time, it's healthy. For me, as long as it is swimming, basketball, volleyball, or capture the flag, P.E. is passable, but it's still annoying.

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 always makes me nervous at school is how my teammates will rage at me for being bad at sports.

I'm still more physically active outside of school! Then I can have fun at least...

9 More Field Trips

Kids spend so much time studying and working super hard. They should get a reward and 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.

10 More P.E Classes

Yeah! I love sports! Playing soccer with the dudes is fun! Basketball, running, and football are awesome! We should have more P.E.! It also keeps us active!

That would be kinda bad because we can play sports however we want. PE is an art, and art means original styles!

PE is my favorite subject ever. I love all sports so much! More PE would be awesome (and swimming more often, not just one term!).

The Contenders
11 Students Paying Attention in Class

If the kids did pay attention in class, then the teacher wouldn't get mad at us, and they wouldn't punish the whole class.

Where I come from, the teachers can tell, even when a kid says, "Wanna Sprite Cranberry?"

12 Fewer Hours a Day

Fewer 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 nine and a half hours every day, plus a lot of homework. Pretty annoying.

13 Kinder Teachers

Thank Jesus my teachers are amazing in high school!

14 More Entertaining Classes

No boring classes. In Melbourne, Australia, at Princes Hill Primary School, my teacher almost only read books and let us have free time. We hardly had to work at all.

We had a pajama day where everyone had to come in their pajamas, and it was just amazing and very easy.

Best teacher ever. My teacher used to give us candy for solving questions that were as easy as pie. She's really fun. She tells us stories about what happened to her once and more.

Her class was like the room of fun and awesome.

A class teaching how to play video games would be much better than a boring history class. Like Roald Dahl said, he wanted a chocolate class instead of studying history.

15 Shorter School Year

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.

November to February are the school months!

I'd rather seven months, not three quarters of a year or three Mercury years.

16 Psychologists Were Hired to Help Mentally Ill or Misbehaved Students

Schools actually do have psychologists, but they don't try hard enough sometimes...

17 Longer Breaks

Thirty 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 per day.

18 Being Allowed to Listen to Music All the Time

I can understand why this is a rule because students might not learn in lessons, and listening to music makes it easier to ignore the teacher. But to fix that, just listen while you are completing the classwork or task!

Not only does it make students more positive about doing their work, but it can also help them focus, like if they were listening to study music.

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!

19 No Guns Allowed

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?

20 Faster Computers

Each computer could have 8GB of RAM instead of 2GB, which would make them more pleasant to use.

21 Longer Holidays

In England, we only have six weeks. Who CARES, we should have more time off! One project in school here takes eight weeks on average. We get two fewer 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 workdays are taken in my county when it snows. It means February, March, and April have no days off - not one until spring break. I NEED a few for my sanity.

22 More Focus on Learning Than Grades

In my school, there is a thing called quick maths that only focuses on your grades.

Yes. YES. This is one of the biggest problems of the education system.

I like learning. I don't like stress.

23 No Annoying Kids
24 Clean Toilets

All the time, my school's toilets stink of urine, and there is plenty of graffiti in the cubicles. Once, some girls thought it would be a good idea to flush a ton of toilet paper down a toilet and flood the place.

25 Less Standardized Testing

I know "fewer tests" is already an option, but I feel like this is its own thing.

I hope Sri Lanka has fewer of these tests, just like Finland.
