Hello PMC!

So right now in the school where I am we're doing research papers on what people think about their schools. As no age nor specifications have been given, I have decided not to include age or country.

So if you could take 10 seconds out of your day to click on one of the options abouve, then I would be really happy as that will help me with my school paper :D

Thanks!

I actually like school. Somewhat. It's usually the teacher that matters to me, otherwise I can do good in any subject if the teacher is not uninteresting and throwing useless work down our throats. I can talk to my friends in more ways than I can online. Plus our school has 'enrichment' classes, which you pick a topic from a short list and you get that class. Engineering, photography, and Spanish are some of the classes.

Maybe you could ask your parents, and talk with your school about it :)

No, the system is completely wrong. In general, you just memorise what you read from a book that you've got you pay for (that you'll never use it again later), then you do an exam answering what you've memorised and then you just forget everything you knew. What's the point of calling it "educational system" if you don't learn?

According to what I could find, the system is made to help you become better at remembering orders, and train you to work at a factory and not ask questions :D
Kind of rubbish system to be honest.

Yup, in fact it isn't about education, it's about discipline. And discipline, at least for the government and authorities in general, means learning to obey, to not refuse, never question anything (especially authority, since they're superior in everything) and well, that's the system in which you need to spend more than 16 years in. Curious.

It's designed for when the school system was initially created- when factory jobs were great. They haven't done much to change this..

I'm quite suprised too about the results. I have to deliver my research paper on Monday, and I've actually had to re-write part of it because people actually liked school :'D

I've graduated from high school this year. There are a lot of times where I have enjoyed school, but at the same time didn't enjoy it. I think what parts made me not enjoy it was the state required project, which was a lot harder than any of the other high school projects that I have seen or heard about from other schools, even from different states. Another reason is just from having teachers who purposely gave me or other students, and sometimes even themselves a hard time when it was completely unnecessary. But the part that did make me enjoy high school was my friends and welding in the metal shop, since I have found myself fond of welding and doing other metal fabrication work.

Final year, huge exams at the end, 7 hours of maths a week, 6 of Biology, 4 of Physics and 8 to 6 hour school days. Oh and I forgot about the stress. So, yes I like it.

I'm currently homeschooled so I'm not sure if that still counts. I enjoy my education nonetheless.

Though maybe you could explain something really quick to me (because I've noticed a lot of PMC users have this) But what is "Home-school" exactly. I get it that it's school, at home but do your parents teach you or does a special teacher come out to teach you? :p

Sure thing. Living in New South Wales, Australia, I follow under the state education department's curriculum and requirements. My mother is my teacher but I have tutors that come to my house for certain subjects as we see necessary.
After a certain period of time (maximum of 2 years), a moderator from the state government agency comes to review the work done by a student over that period. If the moderator is satisfied that the required work has been completed and is up to the state standards, they will approve a continuation of the students registration as a home-schooled student.

In terms of my teacher being my mum, it is a big responsibility and undertaking for a parent to homeschool their child so the parent needs to feel they are capable of doing so. As far as resources, we use a range of books and online programs and teaching sites, many of what schools use.

Each family is different in how they organize and structure their children's learning so there is really no set format but for me, it's a great opportunity.

I often get asked, how will I make friends? Is being home-schooled unhealthy? How can you be social? Well, there are numerous homeschooling families all over the world and most likely in your town or city. I live in a city with over 70,000 people and there is a huge network of 100's of families who homeschool their children. We have all the same exposure, opportunities and education that any kid going to a school does.

I don't see how being homeschooled is good?
the only good thing about school is meeting your friends and if you don't have that school must be terrible

I love it! High school is the best. Middle school is the worst. Two rules- don't make eye contact with people who look like trouble, and FOCUS on your grades, and you'll succeed!
