I mean really, I wish my parents home schooled me. I'm currently a senior at a 'prestigious' high school and I can honestly tell you I have no idea
how this school isnt uncovered for what it is. The last three years have been average school years, just scraping by to get the next year then finally
out of here. But this year is ridiculous and 25% of the year hasnt passed yet.
The title of the thread has been bugging me for the last few years but it is really prevalent this year because of all this proposition crap. So for
you non-Californians you might not know about prop 8 and the gay marriage stuff but its really a fad at school now and everyone who is for it their
main argument is that their kids will be taught about gay marriage and stuff, but these are the kids who just goof off all day and if their kids are
anything like them then what they are taught doesn't matter.
So, I have two classes out of six just this year that melt my brain just being in. First is this forensic science class we pretty much sit around and
do nothing. Occasionally the teacher will fall asleep at his desk but he has pretty good classroom control so the class is OK I just do other work,
but I could do without this class.
Second, I have a science class with a first year teacher at this school who has absolutely no classroom control at all. Things being thrown around,
notes being passed, cell phones used, etc.... Not only that but after attendance is taken kids just walk up to his desk and erase their marked
absence, or take the part of the detention slip that goes to the office so he cant turn them in. The worst of all, is that this teacher can not spell.
Yes, we all have words that we cannot spell and even teachers (math teachers :stfu
but this guy cannot spell science words (nucleus, alkaline,
matter,etc.). I do not know what to do as I need this class to graduate and cant get out until next quarter. I've got a email prepared to the admin
but I doubt they'll do anything since they are afraid to take an opinion. I am seriously concerned with the teacher snapping or a student snapping
I'm nervous every time I enter that class, I am considering just ditching the class and graduating late or whatever I really dont care because I
think it's more important to me to fail this class because of how ridiculous it is rather than getting this shady degree from this falsely advertised
school. I mean, do schools screen the people that they hire? I should go into the business of running a school, it sounds easy hire a bunch of
incompetent folks with some degree and no questions asked!
Well that concludes my first rant post, and sorry if there are some errors or it doesnt make sense but you should get the gist of it. (and I hate
reading what I write! :stfu
And if you've made it this far, I'm really looking for experiences from teachers, students, parents, or anyone with an opinion thanks!
