This video is slightly biased but in bare essentials it's true. I feel really lucky I attend a private school. The video is kind of long but there's so much information in it that makes me angry that I thought it was worth introducinghttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfRUMmTs0ZA

I checked the thread index, this is not a duplicate.

I am not going to pretend I know everything about public schools because I have never been to one (I went to a Montessori school in grade school up through middle school). This is an issue I feel is important which is why I posted it.

here's more proof of the problem

Public schools fail.

In fact, the American school system does nothing but spoon-feed us. Someone I know that gets straight A's though Chicago was a state...What does that tell you?

I hate my school for three main reasons:
1. Crappy teachers
2. Annoying kids that don't do anything and are just there for friends.
3. Retarded worksheets and "answer the questions at the end of chapter #", as if that is somehow going to teach us anything...

I'm in public school....I'm one of the....27 people there (out of 700+ students) that care about my education. But, unfortunately, unless i get blessed with an outstanding college opportunity, i will probably be doomed to a life of mediocrity...

Somebody kill me

All public schools aren't that bad..
Well mine is a public but a charter also so the school makes it's own decisions.
My school's graduation rate is one of the highest in NYC.
People also go to Columbia and other good uni's after...
Well uhmm the discipline is kind of bad....
but the grades are good...
so don't think that all public schools are that bad.

Why some kids are just too damn stupid. First of all if they have teachers that are to strict the very good students stress over and the already bad students just do worser things, now if the teachers are loose non caring and use somewhat fun ways to teach the kids are non-stressfull but also the teacher has no control of his/her class. now what the teacher needs to do is give a fun way to learn, while still forcing out this is not "free time"

Now the kid's are also to blame for this is there decision, first of all the only reason i really want to do good in my class is to impress my dad and make him proud, i have a 3.8 GPA right now and im so damn happy that my dad is happy. I do all my work, i put my best effort into things now there are some kids that don't do that who just WING it before class starts, or don't really care and just go to bed because they do not have enough sleep in the morning, if schools had made it so they have to go at 9:00 AM they wouldnt be all this tired and wouldnt go to bed because well THEY ARENT SLEEPY!

let me describe my teacher her name is MS Abojamra and she grew up from the streets, boston and she is just wonderful she makes the funniest jokes and sometimes critizes the students which is needed and funny. thats how a real teacher should be.

I mean shit, when i was watching this video dude they aren't stupid but they can do better, they need to try more.

When they asked what is the bill of rights its the rights of the god damn people! what caused the civil war? Adur because the North wouldn't give back the escaped black slaves, and made them secede.

The US was ranked 25th. All of the countries above are mostly Asian and European countries. I knew I should have stayed in Japan with my dad.
