I'm not really sure whats going on at my school, except some big asociation is taking over, & there changing it into an acadamy. I didnt think it was that big a deal, but my mum said that its really bad, cuz there's loads of changes like less lessons, more free time, & possibly no uniform. I thought it sounded good, but apparently its gonna be a place they dump kids with no future its already happened to a school that my mums friends daughter goes to, & she said its really bad now.

anyone who goes to highschool like me, has this happened to your school?

While I don't think I've ever heard of this kind of thing, although I might have heard about it in different terms... it sounds like from your short description that they're giving the children and parents more responsibility, which is probably why your mom was against it.

You will be responsible to take part of the guided/teacher assisted lessons in a manner that you feel necessary.
And you will be responsible for making use of your free time in an efficient way, look at it this way; they gave away some lessons of self-study for you to organize any way you want.
Also they are expecting you to be capable of clothing yourself sensibly.

It's in your hands now, you alone can fuck yourself up now and you will have no one to blame.


best answer, I'm probably going to fuck up my life

There was a difference between ' academy ' and school ? !

An academy is an institution of higher learning, research, or honorary membership.


A school is an institution designed to allow and encourage students to learn, under the supervision of teachers.

- Wiki

Oh . Back in Philippines I was in an ' academy ' . That`s what it was called . I`m in a regular school now .
If an academy is what Wiki said it was , kids with ' no future ' would most likely fail in an academy .
' Higher learning ' it says . It must be harder than school then ?

Maybe we`ll get some idea as to who will pass their courses or not .
I`m implying nothing .

How the fuck can an "academy" have less lessons, more free time and be a place to dump kids with no future in. Not only you, but your mom might need a little bit more education in this field

is that not the defonition of states schools/ or public- the one thats funded by th goverment. A place that the government forces kids to go whether they want to be educated or not, thus making the kids that wanna learn suffer because the school cannot get rid of the disruptive kids?
