Top 10 Worst School Lessons

We all hate school bad, but nothing says bad like crap lessons.

The Top Ten Worst School Lessons

1 P.E.

Apparently, if you hate PE online you're an obese kid. I'm literally the shortest and lightest kid in my class.
And apparently, everyone likes football so they make you play it one of your 2 lessons a week (unless you have swimming).
If you get hurt, they'll still make you play the game.

I am annoyed that a lot of my school and classmates prefer P.E. over Computers. I find it a chore having to do this. I hate that lockers are stall free, and I also do not like the mile run. We want better stuff than childish games of football. I loathe football naturally, I strongly dislike losing, and there are more enjoyable sports like bowling, Wii Sports, Water Balloon fights. I knew something was wrong with P.E. naturally when they only enjoy the non-field game activities.P.E. will not impact our future. No wonder my classmates were such brainless poop heads.

Computers are way better than P.E. I mean, computers can get you into an IT school and there are a bunch of majors in college that need computers but I don't see how P.E. can get you into a good university, unless you're applying into the sports major - MLPFan

I actually like some pe stuff but I hate the MILE RUN Oh God, the mile run. It was already at least 95 degrees outside when we did it. I also hate the PE teachers. One time my best friend TWISTED her ankle in gym class and the coach was like Ava you're fine keep playing! Luckily that coach doesn't work at my school anymore

God how is this not number 1i go to middle school and took p.e for a semester and hated it 1st you have to dress in a shirt and shorts which means that you have to show your underwear in a locker room one time someone broke into my locker and stole my shorts in told my coach he said it should have locked it is said it did he says that it didn't when he's totally aware that a lot of the kids are vandalized because on our first day half the lockers were broken or couldn't lock / unlock so it got in trouble and everyday would ask where my shorts were in eventually gave up and became a smart Alec 2nd everyone picked on me third every coach was mean

2 Maths

Wanna become video game designers? Welp good luck without knowing your 1 2 3s

I use elementary school math all the time in my life, but I don't think I will ever have to prove a triangle congruent after I graduate from college. Why do they teach us this garbage? I went for 12 years no knowing how to factor a quadratic equation, and I don't know any adults who know what a quadratic equation is other than my math teacher. IT just gets very pointless. Also I just hate math. It's so boring! I hate numbers, epecially when they're next to letters.


Why isn't this number 1? All you do is write numbers! In fact, drama music and all the active stuff were low on the list (but I agree PE is terrible) and maths isn't even active, it's just sitting there! I always fall asleep it's that boring!

3 RE

They should teach science, art and history at school, not brainwashing.

This is only in private schools. Why is this here anyway? Just because you are an atheist doesn't mean you have to constantly hate on religion. I'd say it gives you a better hope than just eternal dead!

Religious education? That can make you racist! Not just skin color is race, religion is also race.

I'm glad I don't take any religious classes - Frouze

4 English

We can already read and write (just like the person below me said), but why learn this extra crap and do worthless novel studies and projects? I don't care what Shakespeare wrote several centuries ago!

We know how to read and write and spell, why do we need all this extra stuff? - Alpha101

We know how to talk read Wright spell besides in my English class right now we are learning Greek mythology or as me and my friends say that we are pretty much learning a different religion how does that have to do with English

The whole point of this is to learn how to make sentences make sense. I find it ironic that some terms they use (past participle, present perfect) make no sense.

5 Art

You can't paint or draw whatever you like, because it's still a class, and classes have assignments and projects. Still, if you have art at my school you need a journal that you write "art history" in. Yeah, WRITTEN WORK in an ART CLASS. Even the actual art we do isn't that creative.

Art. that ONE subject that makes me fail in class. I don't get one thing, how the HELL do you mark art. its not formal like a test or anything. and also the teachers are SUCH BIG hypocrites, I mean one time they tell you its all about creativity, next they tell you that your art sucks. GOD they so harsh - luvanime123

It would be good if they let us get creative. But of course, they don't. - 4Noobs

I like drawing with pencil best, but the teacher wanted me to use paint most of the time and I just hate using paint. I'm not good at it and I don't want to be. A classmate was moved to a higher art level because of her painting skills which irritated me a lot, so I now moved into Movie Making.

6 Drama

It isn't that I don't like acting. I love to act. It's just that being forced to do Romeo and Juliet in school is a perfect way to ruin half the school year! I got the part of Juliet in my class, and guess how everyone responded? I can't go within ten feet of the person who got Romeo without being taunted! Worse, the kids in my class will shout or wolf whistle at us if we get paired for anything IN THE MIDDLE OF CLASS and our teacher does NOTHING! AND our drama teacher is making us do all these things to "improve our compatibility" or something. I don't know. It doesn't help that the video we watched to "learn the language of Shakespeare" had a lot of... worse than kissing. You can have a drama class in school, but please DON'T DO ROMEO AND JULIET. - pandagirl

Drama is the best subject. It's easy to pass and 90% of the time we don't have to write anything. - notveryswoleboi

I love drama! My drama teacher is the best! She lets us talk during class and play on our phones! And she lets us sit where ever we want and lets us choose the activity we're gonna play! We play games all the time! And she is super funny!

The worst thing about school, my teacher ordered me and said that I'm going to play the character of ophelia! - Ananya

7 Geography

It starts off good when you start high school, but then it gets really really boring like what it was at primary school - Liam31idents

Worst subject ever!
And I have a teacher that doesn't let us whisper, talk or make any kind of noise! Shes crazy! - BlackDeathCode

What geography is the best subject in the world

God Geography is the most crappist subject ever!

8 Food

I think they meant to say culinary or chef class. Anyways, how is this a useless subject? It's about cooking. Because, someday, if you're living on your own, then who's gonna cook for you? Nobody, so you might as well figure out how to do it yourself. - Stazemar000

This is not a subject

I think they mean culinary class

It can taste really good though

9 History

I don't believe that knowing about history have anything to do with be coming a historian, Its good to learn about what happened in the past and if you did something important you wouldn't want to be forgotten, would you? History is a very good subject and if you feel that its worthless, you is a very selfish person because you wouldn't have a land to live on if the native American's didn't discover it.

History is not that bad for me to be honest. It's good to learn about what happened in the past and stuff, because if you do not study history at all, you're doomed to live the past (or in other words, repeat it) - Stazemar000

History has always been my favorite subject. My history teacher is awesome he's 24 and he's nice and jokes with the class. I'm in 7th grade so we learn about the most interesting stuff in history like World War 1 and World War 2.

do I really wanna know what happened 300 years ago?

10 Science

Some science subjects are disgusting, some are inappropriate for children, and I loathe binder check. If you find science boring, then it's not the subject itself. It's the way it's taught. We don't want to learn the same stuff in the next grade, we know learning the same stuff is a waste of time. Why was science mandatory anyway? It's not your fault you had to go through this.

Science is a waste of time, not once in my adult life have I needed to know what osmosis was. The only time I've seen science being used for something is when my mother (the physics teacher) blabbers on about why it's important. It's a convocation starter at the very most

So, you know, the period ends and people are rushing to get to the next class, and you forget to push in your chair. But my teacher will HUNT you down to push in your chair! And if it goes into the next period, she will tell the kid to not sit in the seat until she finally finds you. Plus, she used to force you to sing if you fell asleep in class, but thankfully she stopped that. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Science is not a waste of time. It's the only class that really gets you engaged. - 4Noobs

The Contenders

11 Writing

Yes I agree one time my writing was bad when I tried my best and I got shouted at

Whenever I write a lot of notes, it takes forever and my hand gets tired from them

I love to write


12 Health

(Shivers) The puberty... It burns my eyes...

I am still in grade 6 and I asked a fellow grade 7 what it was like -shiver- nope. - Captaincrunch2015

*shivers* We had to take a health class in 5th grade... It gave me nightmares.

But when you have to talk about it with your teachers... Hell NO

13 Business Studies

It's kind of a shame how you have to take this subject to have a chance at being a millionaire. - notveryswoleboi

It's awful. We have a pigeon who teaches it.

Not bad.I've seen worse,at least it can get your more jobs then algebra.

This is so boring like its just maths in words
What is the point the boss will just give us our money and we leave

14 Music

Playing drums is awesome. I'm actually a really good drummer. However, I will admit there was a reason I chose drums: it was the most accessible. You have to admit, playing specific notes is painful, except bass and keyboards, with some guitar.

Worst subject ever, like what? Music is the reason I got such bad grades back in school. I sucked at playing the drums

I had to play the recorder in elementary school and the keyboard in middle school. It was so hard!

It is the worst thing ever

15 Languages

Not all languages are hard. Just take Sign Language. - Ilovestephanie

German, Mandarin, and French was the worst

@Ilovestephanie-sign language is hard!

Too hard

16 French

If you live in Canada you will know this is the worst subject of all time

I took this in middle school and it was so hard!

I Live in Turkey. In my school, There are 2 lancuages you can lears other than English. German and French. I Willed to learn German but my parents forced me to learn French because it's a "Common language"

Now let me shove a bunch of homework in your butt

17 Visual Arts

Today, I brought my homework for visual arts in, guess what?

They wouldn't put the picture in there collab, all that work done for nothing!

So, it's still fun! You get to be creative for something not for nothing. plus, just try your best, it doesn't need to go in the collab

18 Media Studies
19 German

Our teacher said German was the easiest language to learn. She's from Germany, so of course it wasn't the easiest. - 4Noobs

My history teacher lived in Germany, so he says a lot of German words

This lesson is harder than Japanese.

20 Biology
21 Sex Education

Everyone is so immature in this subject. Everyone laughs when the teacher says "penis" or "condom"

Like, why do we even need to? Put on a condom before sex. There. The whole course done for ya. - notveryswoleboi

It's too inappropriate if you have the mind of a three year old. - 4Noobs

In my opinion nobody should learn this subject until college because sex is too inappropriate.

22 Common Core

The dumbing down of America, the enemy to good teachers and smart students, and the worst thing ever made. COMMON CORE WILL KILL US ALL. PLEASE GET RID OF IT NOW OBAMA.

Dumbing down of America, they're brainwashing us and killing us. This is the biggest reason why people with a low GPA tend to be the most inventive and successful. - 4Noobs

You should see the math book in California for 6th grade. They make you use bar diagrams and number lines and counters and a whole bunch of other dumb stuff. Also, the standards are just dumb. - TheYoshiOverlord

Common Core Math has to be the dumbest, most useless subject ever invented. I mean, the person who thought up with it must've been drunk.

23 Resistant Materials
24 Graphics
25 Personal, Social and Health Education

Worst lesson learning about politics and racism it's just so boring

26 System Controls
27 Computer Programming

It's pointless busywork that no one needs to know about.

This class is harder than I thought it would be

Now I feel bad for wanting to take this class. - 4Noobs

Its only the future if people think it is. I think it's a waste of time.

28 Spanish

Spanish SUCKS! I LIKE Japanese!

Racist, now let's all agree every country is cool

He's not racist. He's just stating his opinion that Spanish isn't his type of language to learn. If he wants to learn Japanese, let him learn Japanese mate. - 4Noobs

29 Textiles

Teacher: 1 min late : DETENTION

Teacher lost my homework so I get a detention.

I do not do this subject anymore but when I did I wanted ww3 to happen so I didn't have to suffer with this crap!

Boring and useless, WORST SUBJECT EVER.

30 Irish

It is hard and the language always somehow changes, depending on the verb you're using

It is harder then French.

Why do we even need to learn Irish? It's boring, the abair beir bi etc. is confusing as in the duirt rug bhi and all that, and last but not least, NOBODY EVEN SPEAKS IRISH! - Mii24

31 Chemistry

So much math. God damn I hate this subject.

Chemistry is cool

32 Speech

The worst class ever. All you do is write bad speeches on stupid topics. Especially horrible if you hate public speaking.

I think it means speech therapy but you made a good example too - Ihateschool

I was told that when I was a kid I had to take speech therapy when I was in elementary school. WHY THE HELL DID I HAVE TO TAKE THIS?

1) I already know how to speak! I've been speaking since I was like 1 or 2!
2) I knew how to READ in preschool! I'm too smart for this trash! I'm not stupid!

It was a pointless class, and it wasted my time for NOTHING. SCREW SPEECH THERAPY! >:(

33 Assembly Practice

Why do we even have school assemblies every morning?! I just wanna go to class to get the whole school day over with! - MLPFan

In my old school I had assembly in the afternoon😩😩😩


34 Ancient Greek

I like how this lesson in mandatory in Greece. NO ONE SPEAKS IT

Who even takes ancient greek. I take latin and its amazing

Thos is the lesson where you may die of boredom

35 Home and Careers
36 Indonesian

I like reading, so I enjoyed this lesson because my Indonesian class book has a lot of stories and texts in it - MLPFan

It would be easy for me. I speak Indonesian.

I don't know how to speak Indonesian, so all I hear is: BIM CHIN DURKL LURK - 4Noobs

At my school we have Indonesia lessons but we just call Indonesia Indo sometimes its fun but most of the time it sucks!

37 Swimming Swimming is an individual or team sport and activity. Competitive swimming is one of the most popular Olympic sports, with events in freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly.

The girls can see you half naked if they aren't playing volleyball while you swim - Captaincrunch2015

I suck at swimming. I don't know how to a back stroke

Wish we had swimming at our school. - 4Noobs

Swimming is the worst thing ever especialy if you have exma

38 Statistics


39 Mandarin Chinese

I took this as a kid and it was so hard that I QUIT!

40 Reading Comprehension

My teacher is so mean to us and extremely negative and discouraged.

Bitch 👋 across the face

41 Technology

I suck at Technology laugh out loud.
But the teacher makes you take home a little wood thing missing 5 screws that was made in a week. And it takes 1000 years to saw a little piece of wood that is still too long and then I have to saw it again! I hate Technology!

My hand hurts from sawing a crappy cd rack I don't even want, the table's made out of wood and has splinters in. And just one thing before I go:


Like sending an email with lots of naughty words will do you any good in school. That is why I am sad I live on Earth -- because texting and emailing have become, sadly enough, part of the curriculum. "Common Core" hits us the hardest.

HOW on Earth is technology number 5! I can even sand, never-mind frill! I get it for an hour a week! I am slowly dying in that class!

42 Info Tech
43 Spelling
44 Linear Control Systems

Linear control system..It freaks me..all stability criteria and formulas.oh god..

45 Information and Communications Technology
46 Algebra

Once for our Egyptian topic, we had Algebra in Hyroglyphics for a treat. it was not a treat at all...

47 Functional math

I had to take this in high school. It was basically stuff that I learned when I was in KINDERGARTEN AND FIRST GRADE, such as counting coins and telling time. Stupid, pointless, and boring! >:(

48 Design and Technology

Literally just sketching the same thing over and over, then spending one week building it only to find it looks crap. - PenumbraDoge
