It sucks mainly because you spend 12 years of your life (maybe more) and get absolutely little to no "education" out of it at all.

Modern day schooling only prepares you enough (through conformity, obedience of authority, indoctrination) so that you can be a cog in a corporate machine/federal machine. It leaves you stupid enough so you can't create change in your own life or others. As well as being stuck inside same system due to a lack of valuable "education" directly affecting your possible net worth. Meaning you will slave away your whole life for pennies and be left with nothing by the time 60-70 years of age comes. That is of course if your even healthy enough to last that long.

There is lack of involvement to real world tasks that we should be prepping for. We're not offered lessons that will actually garner any benefits passed sophomore year IMO. The things we learned in freshman and sophomore year could have been compiled or added on middle school. High School felt worthless besides the friends and people I met. I wish school helped you focus and choose how you can contribute to both yourself and society or where ever path you grew genuinely interested in at an early age. I get most of the information I need through research on the web and books than the 12 years spent being forced to interact with people with similar discomfort and lack of interest.

Well, the teachers don't teach you a dam thing that you can use in daily life. 2.It's not the 90s 3.Still not being taught anything of value. 4. School today just sucks big time. And then there is College, $10,000 to $200,000 thousand dollars in college debt and working for a $30,000 to maybe a $80,000 a year job, "if" you get hired.

It doesn't suck!

One can understand that it can be perceived as annoying given that sometimes one is subject to all those things in the list, but, one must understand that things of value, things that are important, require work.

Teachers need to work harder to appeal to various student's learning styles. Higher Salaries and an Abundance of supplies will lead to Happy Teaches..which comes engaging students.

home schooling is so much fun. but I find it dull when the subject/s is/are boring, or the teacher isn't actually applying any effort in trying to teach, which can also make things boring. I do enjoy free sleep in boring classes, wake up and still know what I'm doing.

You're probably right

However, this is America. Teachers are and will in the foreseeable future be under paid and underrated by peers in every field.

You know, I wasn't going to reply to this
And then I read it again and though maybe. But nah
And then again

I sense a high degree of sarcasm/sass (maybe you were just being brief), so I would like to be a little less blunt and maybe a bit more in-depth

My sister works as a teacher, a friend of mine will work as a teacher, and I work as a tutor, so I greatly respect teaching as a profession.
But it cannot be denied that America's school system has serious issues.

Teacher's being underpaid and a lack of resources is just one part of it.
Another is that people don't give teacher's enough respect. The phrase "those who can do, those who can't teach" or at least the sentiment is firmly ingrained in people's minds. And even with higher pay, raising how teachers are viewed would be integral to getting more, better teacher's.


And then there's the system itself (e.g. standardized tests, common core, no child left behind) that can and have led to other problems. I won't touch on them because I don't have first hand experience and because they deserve more serious, individual consideration.

And last, the government (stemming in part from the people) undervalue education. So the chances of these things changing anytime soon is unlikely.


Just my 5 cents, and maybe you were just keeping the response brief, but oh well, this is an interesting topic to discuss/consider anyway, so.
