Ya I agree we the students still have control what we learn but we don't have muct control of what we are tought.
I had an english class last year of highschool, This last year I could pick any classes I wanted I got all my science,math,english,history ect
credits required for graduation.
So I talked to my counsilor to put me in chemistry or physics she looked at me and said honey it's too hard and plus you can't take those classes I
asked why and she said because I am already taking science credits the electronics class.
So then I thought maybe she is right so I then picked webdesign when I got into that class we learned nothing but how to use dream weaver.
we did learn html but I already learned it on my own when I was in 6th grade I got a book on it from the libaray and learned it. So when I was in this
class I was ahead with my hw. The teacher didn't lecture all was nothing but assingments from some book that was to pratice html.
So since I was ahead so my teacher then made me help others when they needed help. One time she was helping a kid because he souldn't get some text
to be a certain color so I had to jump in.
I didn't really learn anything new in that class. I then for the second semester took math algbra 2 well right before 2nd semester started the
counsilor called me in and said that their is no room in math class algbra 2 and so she put me in socialolgy. The teacher I got I knew him from
business law class.
He told us on the first day he didn't know much about the subject since he is a business teacher.
So what he did was current events on the first part of the class he even said that if we have so much current events he is willing that if it fills up
the whole time then we don't have to work.
anyway I was just woundering if education is controls and our country relies on it.
A guy said that an F dosen't mean the studnet failed it measn the teacher failed to teach the person.
Yet in college and also employers look at it as how smart you are.
I also notice that If you get a degree from a college like a bach degree you can get the high paying job but if you don't have a degree and you have
the same knowledge as what a person that holds such a degree you can't get the jobs that people who hold that degree.
I know programming. I passed some certificate which I got tested and passed.
I tried looking in my area for a job one was a debugger where I would debugg a clients software. I walked in for an interview and the first thing they
asked was a bach in computer science. I told them I don't have it but I have some sample codes I have, you can even test me giving me programming
They lol and said sorry we only hired people with degrees.
so I left.
I notice when you have a degree or a licnese or a certificate you have to renew it so many years.
I notice people that own these colleges make so much money. My eletronics teacher got a president of a college to come over to give us a presentation
of his college.
he came not to promote the college but to teach us what they do ect.
They guy showed up with a golden neckless and a some golden rings.
He really looked like a guy from a mob.
He told us that he already knows who we are beacuse they buy infromation on us. That is how they send mail to us.
He also said that colleges have one thing in minde keep you as long they can in their college and also to sqeeze as many as they can in each class.
He told us that colleges don't care if you pass or fail they don't care if you learn anything from them all they want is your money.
He also explained how much infromation they can get and told us you would be surprised on how much information about you is out their on the market.
