Well, for me, I wanted to learn law and Japanese, no classes at school for that. We have a building in Toledo you can go to and learn what you
want(Next to library, pretty interesting things there). There I took law and Japanese. I dropped the law and kept the Japanese. I can now count to
1000 in Japanese, know the body parts, know basic grammer, colors, so forth. I didn't get it through school so found a different place to learn it.
I also didn't learn to read through school. If I stuck with that I'd have trouble reading Goosebumps, yet I taught myself to read well and now read
John Grisham, J.D. Robb, Jean M. Auel, and so forth.
But the problem isn't that some kids are smart and being held back, it's the stupid people out there. You see a kid who reads and studies and gets
straight A's. Then you see a white kid who acts ghetto, does drugs, and fails. So instead of taking the druggies out and keeping the smart kid,
they take out the education so they can cater to the druggie. Hell, in advanced english, in America at War(new class, great class), Amrican History,
and european History. Guess what I am good in? Anyways, I just wish that the first day of school after 420 that all the kids would be forced to have
drug tests, and then expell all the ones that test positive for drugs. This solves oercrowding, low grades keeping money from being given to the
school, and of course the drug problem.
Anyways, go school, teachers try, but if you have three students who care and 18 druggies, you'd burn out to.
