mistressofspices- I never said that school was a bad idea. The importance of school cannot be undermined yes, but, when one thinks about it, we can
learn through a lot of other mediums. I disagree with you. I go to a private school and the teachers there choose favorites and I have been singled
out by the teachers because throughout the time that I have been there after I changed schools a year ago I have been unable to pay attention many
times so their impression of me is now that I can't pay attention, think, or learn, so I can't learn in school. I'm now finding it much easier to
teach myself outside of school. I find other mediums like book great for fact checking, and, the internet for a resource on opinions. Correct me if
I am wrong but being on the outside looking in on school being the one that's left out most of the time I feel that school is a horrible place to
learn in that singles out many people that don't go with the norm and stereotypes a lot of people as "cool" or "dorky" and I don't see how
anyone can learn in that environment.
Peruvianmonk- I learn outside of school best through books, articles online and on newspapers, and through museums. I can't learn in school. When
I am in school I get paid very little attention to in my private school and I only learn one thing from a teacher and the teacher can't help me
because they feel that it is more important to help other students.
TheoOne- I agree. I learned a lot through elementary school and middle school. The only important classes I think that you have to take in high
school are the math classes there and the science classes. All the other stuff we basically know and we can learn about on our own.
Additionally, TheoOne, one has to think about how long it will take before people will actually be able to learn outside of schooling and whether it
will be successful or not.
