i kind of agree with him in a way. i hate school, but i love to learn. high school is definitely bull[expletive], but you do need guidance with more advanced education.

I agree with what you said, but I seriously doubt someone like him was referring to the ideal that mandated education is not up to par with an individual's desire to become educated, especially nowadays considering social media.

 

I am of the opinion that at the HS level, if you do not want to be there then someone should find something constructive for you. Teachers shouldn't be babysitters for those that do not want to learn. School doesn't brainwash anyone, if you're easy to impress or manipulate, odds are you weren't going to amount to much going forward.

i ditched often, hardly paid attention in class, and graduated with a 3.7. and no, i wasn't taking the easy way out, as a senior i was taking 3 AP classes out of 6, and 2 out of 6 as a junior... and passed all but 1 with 4s (the last being a 3)

 

i love to read and am much better off both teaching myself and learning through experience. for somebody like me, sitting in a class listening to somebody with no higher then a bachelor's degree ramble on about bull[expletive] was a waste of my time.

I couldn't tell my mom that "high school was bull[expletive]" unless I desired a slap across the face and a new residence. Going to school wasn't an option, it was a requirement.

I don't agree with Jaden but I will say that the United States Education system is flawed in COUNTLESS aspects.

Hard to gauge, but as far as developed countries we rank 17 in had sciences, late 20's in math, and I want to say 15 for reading comprehension. This was a study earlier in the year based of 15-16 year olds. But another one that gauges everything before higher education placed the US at 15 as far top GDP countries in the world,Asian and Nordic countries at the top.

 

Regardless the consensus is for a superpower (at least militaristic), our education is subpar than what is to be expected.

 

But ultimately it is in higher education that the US is unequaled with only England a distant second, although I personally think lower eduction should be a priority, if you don't get them early, then it is an issue tending into early adulthood.

This. I do agree to a certain degree of what this kid has to say. Though the way he said reeks of arrogance. School is a great way to influence kids on how they will perceive the world in the future. It's how the machine works.
