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

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.

Stressful, in order to have a good education, you need to relax more, or you'll get no where in life what so ever..

no home work would be AWESOME! its really stressful and even worse when they give you it on weekends

I am ok with tests, they are important, and studying or doing projects is the only homework we should have. Multiple studies show that homework only increases stress, not only that but, it also blurs the line between the time at school and the time at home. - Stalin

2 Less Days a Week

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

At least 4 because if you go less days the more time you spend at school to keep up the the work

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!

3 days with no homework. - Luckys

3 If Your Favorite Fictional Character Was Your Teacher

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

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.

That would be lit - DrayTopTens

4 No Bullies

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? - 51im_Ro55_2002

I know some people that have been bullied, and a lot of them. I'm sick and tired of it!

Should be number 1. - DarkBoi-X

5 More Field Trips

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.

I haven't gone on a field trip in... How long has it been... Uh... I don't know, 3 maybe 5 years. My school banned them because they want us to sit around and take standardized tests all day every day.

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.

Ew, no.

6 Start School Later

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. - Goku02

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

My school used to do that on a wednesday, but then head took that away and now we have to start school the same time every week D:

Should start at 10 AM and end at 3 PM. At my school, days were 8:40 AM to 3 PM which is TOO LONG. Starting school at 10 AM would also mean less sleepy students. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

7 No P.E.

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. - PianoQueen

PE should be optional... - Luckys

8 Better Food

The food in school, for the most part, sucks. If they always had good food, you'd look forward to school more. - booklover1

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.

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. - RainbowArtist191

We have the cheapest pre-packaged foods at my school. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

9 Less Tests

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. - booklover1

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! - MLPFan

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!

Unless there are more math tests? Well yes duh math rules us - mathguy37

10 Less Hours a Day

6 hours a day is to extreme. 3 would be WAY better. - booklover1

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

Five hours is PLENTY. Why do I have to endure over seven hours of torture? - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

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 - toptenzen

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. - keycha1n

Summer, Christmas break, Spring Break, everything should be longer. - booklover1

Haha yes! - Userguy44

12 Longer Breaks

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. - booklover1


Because you would have less school!

13 Being Allowed to Listen to an iPod All the Time

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. - NuMetalManiak

I learn MUCH better with music but my school does allow ipods/smartphones/mp3 players so that would be awesome!

Especially during lunch so we can de-stress from mean teachers

14 More Entertaining Classes

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. - CALLOFDUTY,BITCH

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. - booklover1

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.

Maths - No thanks
English - Eh
DAT - No
Music - Hell NO
Art - Nope
Cooking - YES - BraixenBreak

I like art, but they ruined it for me by making us draw weird and boring stuff. - XxembermasterxX

15 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. - booklover1

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!

You just said less PE

16 No Racism Allowed

People saying n at school? How would this happen?

Why would they allow racism at school?

In the US, I'm sure the only place it IS allowed is Mississippi. - doodie

They already “supposedly” don’t allow it. Only thing is though, when you try to report racism to somebody, the person you’re telling most likely won’t care. - 3DG20

17 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 - DK

Me and my friends would agree. - Userguy44

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

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

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

24 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 - PeeledBanana

I would go to school every day if Steve Cash, Seth McFarlane, David Spade, Cory Williams or even Neil Sanderson (he’s not really a comedian, but he’s still super funny) were my teachers. - 3DG20

25 Your Favorite Fictional Characters Become Your Classmate

That would be The Backyardigans would become my classmates. - Ilovestephanie

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

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

Yes if Clemont was in my school, it would be a miracle

26 No Strict Teachers

Focus on this. This makes school so much better because the teachers would just make it so entertaining.

Imagine if your teacher was obsessed with your favourite book/T.V. show/anime and talked about it almost all the time

My dream would come true

I'd LOVE for this to happen.

That's like a dream - Ananya

27 Being Able to Watch Movies More Often

In Kindergarten all the kids do is watch cutesy little educational movies. After that... - mayamanga

Yeah, agree with this A LOT.

December: 80% chance of watching a movie
Other months: 20% chance of watching a movie

The movies we watch suck I want to be allowed to watch animated movies like Boss Baby and Secret Life Of Pets in school - Ihateschool

Only if they don't give you questions that go with the movie

28 Faster Computers

Yes this is very important

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

29 Choose Your Subject

And maybe you could pick your CLASSMATES!

I want to do art and play soccer. I also want to learn to sing.

I'd choose only Biology and arts. Screw the rest - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

You kind of can in high school. In grade 9, you can pick 2 electives and as you go along, you’ll have less compulsory courses and you’ll be able to have more classes of your choice, or at least that’s how it is in my area. - 3DG20

30 No More Popular Girls

So, popular girls aren't allowed but what about popular boys? - NotYoursTruly

It says "girls" because popular girls tend to be far more annoying and bratty.

That's not always the case. The boys make fun of everyone who is not "normal", and I am on the autism spectrum. Some of the popular boys are violent (I may practice martial arts, but I hate hurting people in any way),and I have had to defend myself twice. The girls can be annoying too, yes, but they don't actively hurt people as often. - Cyri

No I love girls, I rather no more popular boys except me - mathguy37

I don't agree with this

31 If Kids Stopped Saying Cuss Words

I am in 7th grade and I am not allowed to say words like stupid, shut up, idiot or. I know I just said it, but I am online and my parents will never know (cue evil laughter) - XxembermasterxX

I know it's a crappy rule made by overprotective Asian parents. - XxembermasterxX

Why can't kids just ever use nice words? If every time a kid said a curse word they had to pay me a dollar, I would be able to afford everything in the world - DrayTopTens

We need to stop

It sucks being the only person in my entire class that has never said a cuss word

32 Gay PDA allowed

My school doesn't alow any pda.

Now THAT would be creepy

Hoe about PDA in general? - Stalin

I thought you said ISIS not ISS oh ma gosh WHOOPSY

33 Psychologists Were Hired to Help Mentally Ill or Misbehaved Students

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

This would be GOOD because there is this hypersensitive butthurt kid in school who needs to learn how to get on with their social life

34 Sensible Amounts of Homework

If by sensible you mean none, I agree

I have only three this is the last week of school for me so I have zero right now. So I am ok - mathguy37

10 homework per day is insane, 3 is better. - MChkflaguard_Yt

35 Choose Your Teacher

I agree. There was this one teacher at my school named Megan LaVallee that I desperately wanted to have as a teacher last year. Also, everyone told me I would have her. However, I did not have her. Because of this, I never got to communicate with her (she was not comfortable with communicating with me for some reason). If I was allowed to pick my teacher, then I would have picked her in a nanosecond. - anonygirl

There are the surprising boring math teacher at my school which never interact with us students, and everyone falls asleep. She also gives lots of homework every day. I wish I have another one which can actually deliver knowledge to us with interesting ways. - MChkflaguard_Yt

That would be awesome, but sadly, it would never happen because the 4 I would pick are way too good for me and my classes lol - 3DG20

Mine is best - mathguy37

Sometimes a student just needs a little extra help. Having one teacher to explain you're classes to you at you're pace would be great.


Hell no


37 Recess in High School

YES! - Ilovestephanie

If I ran the school schedule, it would be like this:

8:30-9:45: 1st/5th Period
9:45-10:15: Recess
10:20-11:35: 2nd/6th Period
11:35-12:35: Lunch
12:40-1:55: 3rd/7th Period
1:55-2:25: Recess
2:30-3:45: 4th/8th period
3:45: Release

With a 5-minute passing period in between. - anonygirl

It would work out even better if you have 4 classes one day and 4 the next. Each class would be longer allowing more work time and eliminating the homework problem. - Stalin

No religion yet no racism allowed? This is racist. This Mustn't be in this list. - Animefan12

Religion should be allowed but not coerced

43 Spoiled Kids Were Regulated

In my house, I have 3 bedrooms, 5 TVs, two computers, a laptop, tables, each of 6 people has a phone (even my 4 years old sister has a touch phone), my dad has an ipod, I have 2 pets, and I live on a 9th flat of a building. I go shopping everyday with my mom or grandma. Am I spoiled?

Update:All of the brat's fish were sold, so she has fifteen pets, and I got a betta (his name is John Cena)

Update 3:I forgot, I'm now in 5th grade.

Why would they need to be regulated... would you remove their Nike t-shirts?

44 Teaches What You Need in Life

Or just allow us to choose the classes we believe will benefit us the most. Because by High School you should know enough math to function in real life. - Stalin

True rarely are any of the classes even somewhat useful to help you in life.

Ikr! So true! Our parents don't always teach us all the things you need in life, even when they should. We should have teachers like Cory Matthews from Girl Meets World.

45 Phones Allowed During Classtime

People wish this but my school just banned it :'(

I could be playing Clash of Titans if I could - RainbowArtist191

If this was a thing, I can just listen to the songs I like while doing schoolwork. I also want a free, fast and accessible wi-fi hotspot in school. I don't know, but listening to my favourite songs just feels better to ease stress and frustration on hard sums than listening to some innuendos the perverted students in my class like to crack up and laugh at. - MLPFan

They’d be an even bigger distraction - blackflower

Isn't this rule common in all schools? - Animefan12

This is already a rule.
