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 got 5 years to go, and you probably got 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 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.

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.

All of this list (at least the top ten) is quantity rather than quality. Less this, less that. Why aren't you talking about how teaching methods should change?

Teachers don't like having to grade homework any more than students like having to do the homework

2 Less Days a Week

Three Days Of Weekend, Four Days Of School. Seems Reasonable To Me

4 days, it gives you a day off for relief and stress clear, to hang out with your pet or spend some quality time with your family, if you work hard during school. You could even take some homework for that day with you. There would be more sports games played on that day, so you could get a chance to do it on that day if it's not too hot. I think a day off would be perfect.

@Joeljohns249-in the US colleges usually offer classes 2-3 days a week instead of 5

I say 2 days is the key. At least you have more time to complete homework or projects.

3 If Your Favorite Fictional Character Was Your Teacher

Cilan? My teacher? Shut up and take my money!

Have you ever looked at humanity and wondered, WHAT are you doing? - Unnamed Google User Remade

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!

If the Super Mario Bros were my teachers, I would faint from awesomeness.

4 No Bullies

They should all be expelled, it would make decent peoples lives a hell of a lot better.

Focus on this, the other ideas just make the new generation go soft.

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

They're ruined education and school. Without them would be a better place

5 More Field Trips

in my school its 3 field trips a yer and not that many rewards I agree

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.

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.

It would fun to have a field trip every month or something or for a few days in a row

6 No P.E.

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.

YES! I hate gym so much!

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.

I actually like gym.

7 Start School Later

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.

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.

Hounestly, there's a high school somewhere in America that starts school at 10 AM, and they're stastically doing very well.

We need enough rest. I wouldn’t want to be sleepy during discussions. :/

8 Better Food

School: you need to eat healthy
Also school: offers like 2 types of expensive junk food and nothing else

At my old school, the chicken in the chicken nuggets wasn't chicken

The food in school, for the most part, sucks. If they always had good food, you'd look forward to school more.

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.

9 Less Tests

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.

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!

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!

10 Less Hours a Day

6 hours a day is to extreme. 3 would be WAY better.

Yeah! Lets have a strike against school hours! Less mean teachers, more stamps, less negative comments and more positive comments! LESS HOURS A BLOODY DAY!

My school day is 7 hours a day, that's too much for my short attention span to handle

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.

The Contenders

11 Longer Holidays

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

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.

Summer, Christmas break, Spring Break, everything should be longer.

YES! Why do we need school in December or June?

12 Longer Breaks

Yeah ofc, we have 30 mins for both recess and lunch, so we get a break from all that crappy boring work, I don't mind about it but classes for us is around 45 mins to 1 hour, I'm always alone but a super annoying kid never leaves me alone, I tell him to stop but he doesn't, anyways, I'm in high school and I'm hyped about the breaks

Yes for longer breaks, but not lunch. I wanna see my crush/friend thank you very much. I have a different lunch then him, because of how it was split.

I think recess should be an hour and a half and lunch should take longr for those who are slow eaters like me it takes me a while to finish eating so yeah I want a longer lunch and recess we work hard enough so we deserve a break and not just a small one!

I agree I love sitting on the monkey bars but not the original ones - mathguy37

Recess and Lunch doesn't feel as long as it really is.

13 Being Allowed to Listen to an iPod All the Time

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!

That would be nice, and when working and you could block a distraction outside the hallway, it also be nice for at lunch

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

They would think it's a distraction, but it really helps keep the brain going. I would love it if school allows it.

14 More Entertaining Classes

My English teacher gave us sherbet fountains whilst reading Boy by Roald Dahl.

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

Games, Videos, and more guest speakers is pretty good, anything to get out of those boring classes.

Yeah! They should teach us how to play video games. In school, my favorite things about it are playing computer games, playing sports in PE, and recess.

15 No Racism Allowed

But that means destroying every person who grew up in the south

People saying n at school? How would this happen?

Why would they allow racism at school?

Tired of China, Asia and Africa haters!

16 Shorter School Year

Woo more time to see my crush in hot clothes...

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

Shorter Year, Longer Vacation

Oh god this list is so good

17 Clean Toilets

Who else can relate?

Hire more janitors


18 Kinder Teachers

Like one of my favorite special ed teacher Mr. Cheesboro

19 More P.E Classes

I put this low because not everyone likes P. E, but to those who do, more P. E classes would be AWESOME.

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

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!

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

20 Sex With Teachers

Why would we want to have sex with teachers, that's disgusting!

This is disgusting. Who would want to have sex with a teacher?

Oh wow, man

Wait a second man Whaddaya think the teacher's gonna look like this year? (my butt, man)

Oh yeah T-T-Teacher stop that screaming, teacher don't you see?

Don't want to be no uptown fool

Maybe I should go to hell, but I'm doing' well,

Teacher needs to see me after school

I think of all the education that I missed

But then my homework was never quite like this

Ow got it bad, got it bad, got it bad,

I'm hot for teacher

I got it bad, so bad,

I'm hot for teacher

Hey, I heard you missed us, we're back

I brought my pencil

Gimme something to write on, man

Uh uh, I heard about your lessons, but lessons are so cold

I know about this school

Little girl from Cherry Lane, how did you get so bold?

How did you know that golden rule?

I think of all the education that I missed

But then my homework was never quite like this

Ow got it bad, got it ...more

This is disturbing because most teachers are older

Most of the teachers I know at my school so far are in their 30s, but I agree either way. Whoever added this is a pervert.

21 More Focus on Learning Than Grades

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

That would make school a lot more enjoyable for others

I think school should be 50 grades at least - teacher


22 Less Standardized Testing

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

23 No Creepy Perverts

If they didn't exist there wouldn't be 'sex with teachers' or 'naked girls' on this list

This one girl always asks if I need to pee

I'd loose a lot of friends

There's perverts everywhere, DEPORT THEM ALL TO VENEZUELA

24 Your Favorite Fictional Characters Become Your Classmate

Luigi being in my class? He would be my best friend!

Icarus from Disney's Hercules would make a great classmate!

That would be The Backyardigans would become my classmates.

It would be really cool if the loud house characters or all BFDI characters were my classmates

25 Comedian Teachers

This would be awesome, so they can make us laugh.

Adam Sandler would be awesome to have in class

I had a teacher who told scary stories before

Jim Gaffigan needs to be a teacher
