Schools have become the brainwashing centers for our youth. They are fed corrupted information by people who may or may not be even smarter than the

most of the information taught in school outside of writing and literature is partially total BS. Half the stuff that is written in history textbooks
has been falsified because it was written by those that won the war/battle/whatever. History is written by the victor. It takes a strong minded person
to come to these conclusions by ourselves.
Where did you all go to school??????
History was only one class a year in high school out of 9 total classes.
What was BS about English? Physics? Chemistry? Biology? Calculus? Trigonometry? Art? Physical education? I can name classes all day long that are not
I am guessing that your inability to discern that 1/9 is not 50%, you gave up on high school way before it gave up on you.
You should go back to school
Reading comprehension would show you that Iron said half of history was bull. He didn't say half of anything else,
those were different thoughts. So your little 1/9 isn't 50% makes no sense. The way he said it was 50% of 1/9 which is about 5.5% of class.
The subjects themselves would be useful, but not the way teaching works. I had a few good teachers like Iron brought up and I learned 5 times as much
from them than all the rest put together. They were the ones who broke the rules. My high school was top 34 in the USA when I was there. I can only
imagine people as smart as me in other districts were in an even worse spot.
I digress though, I could have learned way faster and learned real stuff if I had not gone to school. If you havn't noticed the dumbing down of anyone
who has an IQ over 120 you won't notice.
You're forced to go to this place, and your brain just shuts off after awhile. There is no critical thinking needed.
All I've done since dropping out besides going into the Army and drinking was making a 2120 on my SAT, and all 99 percentiles on my GED tests. I am
now in college, and it's better, but I would be better served just learning alone.
My kids are either going to a special school like I almost went to, or they are staying home with me.
The Army made me feel just like school did. I noticed the same thing. You are not supposed to question society. You are not supposed to question
social norms. You are not supposed to know more than your teacher does, and they are not supposed to correct themselves.
You guys are on ATS and you don't even realize the MAIN first step into Mind Control...
Where do you guys think ALL the Zombies come from. The ability to QUESTION goes away.
"You don't have to question, LOOK, we have ALL the answers."
"bu what about?"
I felt it was wrong ever since I was 4. "I HAVE to go?" "Why?" "So I'm not free?" "I want to learn about fire, but they're making me color pictures of
bears." "Why do magnets work?" "I know how Santa works, he flies in the opposite way as the earth spins, that way he can get to all the kids."
School failed me hardcore.
