Stay in school, kids by paramoreSUCKS Stay in school, kids by paramoreSUCKS
Sometimes I miss prison.

Sure, high school is where my bitter disposition got set in stone but I still miss the place from time to time.

When I dropped out last year [like an idiot] and I was so thrilled to be out of there. I have been procrastinating about getting my GED but I am glad I did. My ultimate dream is to become a video game concept artist but I am now thinking seriously about dentistry or biology. I do not care that I am going to miss prom but I just miss the day-to-day interaction with people. You forget what social a creature you are until you are cut off from it.

No matter how much you hate it. No matter how much you want everyone around you to drop dead. No matter how close you are to going apeshit on everyone- do not be a dumbass: stay in school or you may regret it.

I was homeschooled, but I started studying in a difference system later on so I could learn what I had to and get my papers...At last.

Yeah, even when I was kid and if was summertime, I missed going to school. I actually signed up for summer school, but its nowhere near the same thing. There are about only 9 people in your class and some of the teachers arent even from your school.

No Everyone Leave School! School Is Evil. Go Learn. Don't get Educated. Educated = stupid zombie drone. Learn = To become smart.  

School is prison 

   Both have 

. Bell schedules
. Crowded cafeterias with bad food
. A courtyard The schools call it a playground
. A library
. buses that look the same 
. Numbers for every Prisoner/Student 
. Walking in lines
. Dress code 
. Abridge freedoms
. authoritarian structure
. negative reinforcement
. loss of individual autonomy
. no input in decision making
. Solitary confinement 
. and Bullies


I am learning only what I am interested in, which is Arts and Media. I will have a wide range of skills. My résumé will be a tablet filled with photos and videos of my work. I plan on having my own Multi Media Company. I'm already starting on a cartoon I have been planning for years. I just need a few more voice actors.    

I became curious as to why schools never teach the history of schools (schools in America cause that's were I live) . So I looked it up and researched it... the history of schools is sick and twisted.


I also looked up the definition of Education.

Here it is copied from my moms old dictionary 

Education

1 : the action or process of educating or of being educated; also a stage of such a process b : the knowledge and development resulting from an educational process < a man of little~> 2 : the field of study that deals mainly with methods of teaching and learning in schools

Here it is from goggles online dictionary 

Education

noun: education; noun: an education 

1. the process of receiving or giving systematic instruction, especially at a school or university

2. an enlightening experience.


I have no interest in a piece of paper with some peoples (People I don't even know) signatures on it.


Lets replace all schools with what I would like to call a Discovery center. ( It could be called something else but it shouldn't still be called School.) 

Were no one is forced to go.

All classes are chosen by the student.

Work is corrected but there is no grades or diploma.

People aren't split up by age (like in old school houses were older kids helped younger kids learn stuff.),

and people are allowed to learn how they learn and not forced to try to learn in the same way as every one else. 

Now a bunch of people will probably call me an moron and say why are you even commenting here. They will also say this is to long of a comment and Say my grammar sucks.

Yes this is long and yes my grammar sucks. I'm Dyslexic and I am doing my best.

I posted here cause if posted on an anti school thing I wouldn't make any progress with trying to end schools in a civil manner.

I am in high school right now. I go to one part time. I walk the depressing hallway and get up at 5:30 am to catch the prison (school) bus. I see how miserable people are. I care that they are miserable and tired and come to school sick because if they don't come every day they will get punished for it. That's why I want to end schools and replace them with discovery centers. So no one will have to put up with school again. Yes I don't have to put up with as much as most people and get to leave early but I still care about my fellow students who have to go threw all the garbage that schools give them.

I'd hate to say 'get a real job', but yeah, get a real job. I'm an author and it's not the rolling-in-dough kind of situation you'd expect. You should look to get another job. Sure, still become an author! It's an amazing job, really, it's just not a very stable one. I'm going to be a drama teacher, but I'm still an author. Just saying.

Either an academic teacher for Junior High, or a chorus/band teacher. I have grown up around siblings who have played instruments. Im leaning towards an academic teacher, though.

That's cool. Junior high would be a bit draining, though, wouldn't it? I've no experience with American schooling, but would that be the ages where they're going through puberty so fights come as standard and emotions run high?

What I got from my experience in Junior High was that the school was on close lock down from principals and teachers, and we had a police officer patrolling, that there were no fights. Just kids who thought they were all that. No one was really bullied. The 6 teachers I had for those 3 years (I have 2 each year 1-homeroom, math, science     2-ELA, Social Studies) were really fun and cared about the happiness of each student, so if I worked at the middle school I went to, it would probably be the same then as it was a few years ago.

i agree you should stay in school but if you have bad social issues or actual medical reasons that you shouldn't be in a school / around other people home school / online school is always a good alternative, its the same schooling but more personalized and none of the social stress. no one should just drop out without a very good reason, then of course should at least get a GED

Stay in school...or there's a chance you could end up like the Brigands from The Thief and the Cobbler. :)
You really don't want to end up guarding the king's land without knowing to return and having only your shoes to eat. :)
I'm kind of joking around here, but you get the idea. I doubt anyone would like to spend the rest of their lives at a low-paying job and living alone. Too many high schoolers drop out thinking they can make it, but it's best trying not to get that mentality altogether. :)

I have always hated school. I don't think that's going to change. :P

The only good side of school (and pretty much the only reason some people bother attending aside from being forced to attend) is the fact that if you do well in it, you get a job you want and can spit in the face of the imbecile that called you fat in the seventh grade or something.

The first education, you get from your parents at home.

The second, you get from your teachers at school.

The last-life itself-makes liars of the first two.

I think that school after a certain time in life is overrated, and just a repetition of what you learned before.

I say this because the school system (in Toronto where I live) fucked me up the ass as a youth, to the point where I'm fucked up now (pretty long story).

School (high school especially) lives to fuck up people that have disabilities all, or most of the time. Only a few are lucky enough to be able to survive it graduate it and be successful. The rest could just get homeschooled, or learn independently, as this book can teach you. If I could have been able to do this, I would have. But, this book didn't exist then.

If society wants kids not to drop out, it has to make school (high school especially) better, not just tell them that 'dropping out is no way out'. High school is no more deserving of respect than any other institution that's fucked up and in need of change, and people shouldn't have to be forced to go 'just because'.

BTW, there are a ton of people whose lived were better because they dropped out, and even became successes; Google-search them and find out why.

I cry about it sometimes, missing my old teachers cause I actually liked my teachers.

i loved being in high school, i just recently gradulated but if i had the chance id happily go another year.. the friendly teachers, the organized structure of classes and yes seeing friends time to time.. when you no longer have a schedule to keep to you suddenly find yourself with free time.. at first you love it but then it gets to the point where your life simply stays still from the lack of said schedule. You may find yourself feeling awkward because its 11:00 and you're at home, and you cant stop thinking about how you should be in school... honestly all those idiots who say hey hate school are usually social people, just wait until school ends and all your friends are gone>:D
