Yes, the school system is corrupt in so many different ways.
1. Teachers: I had some teachers who were nice and all, but most of them didn't even care. Most of the teachers are not deicated in giving speical
help to any students. They are good and all, but they want it THEIR way done by THEIR time. Their productivity is despairing too, I can remember
teachers who would take weeks to get tests back to us and they would grade us incorrectly.
Last time I looked at the corperate world, if you messed up, so got fired, or pay deducted. Our teachers have way to much sense of security, so they
are not trying.
Most of the teachers/educators I have seen have taken upon their self to make their own school policy. For instance, I grew up in a well-to-do family
and take many trips around the United States. School policy clearly stated that I had 2 days per day I was gone to do make-up work. But my math
teacher, and science teacher claimed that if I knew ahead of time, I had to do it before I left, or it would be marked as a zero.
Now what up with teachers implementing their own policy?
My other teachers I had seen were hurtful and treated topics too lightly and erradictly, so much, I reported it to the administration. Guess What?
Nothing Happened! Teachers have may to much arrogance for their job posistion, though I support them getting higher pay, if they are good, because we
trust them with our children's education. (No offense to any educator out their.
School is a waste of time if the subect you are teaching has no point to it. Our cirriculum needs a heavy heavy upheaval, and 500% more state funding
to focus teaching on skill and talents we want to learn. Such as, if you have a martial art talent, they have a martial art teacher, and you get
credit for that class a so on. Public schools have wasted so many kids time, and that is why they are dropping out. School should be fun, and not a
right, but a privilege.
That is why a high school degree isn't worth as much anymore, because the public school system is failing. Being prvileged enough to go to the top
school in the 'smartest' state in the United States, I even feel their that it is failing.
This is what is squanering all of this money. For instance, in a recent year, my school just passed over 1 million dollar levy for a new baseball
area/stadium complex. If our school cannot stop vandalism for happening, and from kids failing classes, they should not be wasting their time on
Schools should impress the fact upon kids to value their education. Education is the greatest tool you will ever have. That is why I have set a
personal goal of learning the most I can, while other friends of mine squander their time playing video games and fooling around.
Our public school system is a JOKE TO THE REST OF THE WORLD. The United States is to focused on the comsumer market to care about children's
education, all they care about is producing, perfect, little consumers, that will buy their products...
Education is the thing that is making our world fall apart, a rise in violence, and why we cannot solve our problems!
