Education has become way too focused on the grading scale and does not care enough about the things students can learn from hands on experience. Instead, They care what grades are earned and those grades are what determine the rest of their educational career. Students need to be taught that their intelligence is more than a grade letter!
I have ran into bad teachers, But its not the majorities fault. Ame one incentive to going through 13 years of school just so you can go to another school and end up with mediocre job. Almost nothing needs to be applied after 6th grade, And what does need to be applied is taught poorly (e. G. Health). The only reason we need schools like that are high-trust jobs like doctors and forensic scientists. One big problem is that our taxes are too low. Denmark is smart; they bribe students to go for a further education. Unfortunately, America is in massive debt because people hate taxes. Notice how schools are trying to squeeze money out of everyone? Everything sold by schools is overpriced. Teachers are always complaining about being un
Absolutely! I was in public school for all of my life until this year. I was sick of the way I was treated by students and teachers alike. Once I was suicidal and sought out the guidance counselor for help, And was told she was busy and would call me in later. Days passed, And then weeks with no call. It's a good thing I found help elsewhere, Otherwise, I would not be here today. I also hated how I was held back. Testing out of classes or grades is out of the question. So you are stuck relearning things and not reaching your potential. I have also had teachers straight up tell me that they don't care if they get reported; they have a union that makes it near impossible to fire them. The whole thing is absolutely ludicrous. Heaven forbid we have a school system that helps students learn the way THEY need, Vs the way WE think they need.
I work in the school system and I know for a fact that it is so political. If you know someone then you will get a job if you have never subbed in your life. I seen a person without a teaching degree get hired over people with a teaching degree. The person had a Bachelors but not in teaching. In small towns especially, all the power and money in the county is connected to the school. It is insane, that good teachers can't get full time jobs because the jobs are given to others not even qualified.
No argument needed. We wont ever use algebra again. Or History about fucking Poland. I know how to speak correct english, and I dont care what makes up the parts of a flower. I dont care and neither does anybody else in the world. All for what. Nothing. With the career I want, I dont need to know anything you learn in school
I am in school myself and the punishments are either way to extreme or not handled at all
About 4 months ago, an older boy touched me in an innapropriate spot. My first thoughts were i shouldn't tell anyone cause they won't do anything, but I ended up telling the counselor during our weekly meetings because of stress and he got 3 days of in school suspension. Not even a week ago a girl accidentally popped an inflatable chair and got equal amount of punishment. For me school isn't safe
We get hours of homework each night. I stay up until around 11:30 doing homework and go to school the next morning and I'm falling asleep in class I get sent to the office. But it's not cause I went to a party it's cause I was being responsible.
About a week ago my best friend had a bad seizure during class, they said it was due to, to much energy drinks and coffee. She drinks those to stay up for homework and to not fall asleep during class.
I know that it's healthy to exercise and I don't complain when I run laps in gym I don't talk back during games, I play. But on the one week that I'm on my period that
The head of school districts has all the power to decide what to pay themselves, while the teacher gets merely nothing. Many teachers end up being miserable at their jobs because of this, they are people and many have families they need to support. The head(s) of the school districts have all the power to line their pockets with taxpayer money and it happens often, such as the case in Louisiana at the beginning of the year. Someone posted to cut teacher pay, because they teach bad, although they are forced to. Some districts get picky as to where to write the date on their board. Teachers who have experienced, since no one on the board really ever does, and are in no control. This legit happened at my school, the school wanted to buy the new Pearson textbooks that have wrong information and explain things horribly and almost every teacher objected. One morning I came to my history class and the teacher told us about how they took the textbooks out of his bookshelf and put the new, horrible, ones in. He explained that we have to use these. My ELA teacher has the switch previously although she never uses the book, and neither does the history teacher.
Then the issue of the "Standardized testing to textbook profit loop". The three major education companies, Pearson, Mcgraw, and McMillin, lobbied for high stakes testing for schools and students. These tests are built to fail. The better schools get more money while the "worst" school get robbed. After the students fail the test(which I have run across impossible questions many times per standardized test), the companies pay for the head of school districts for money, McMillin involved in a scandal with a superintendent for 2billion dollars or vacations, and then ask the officials to buy their latest textbook, and it happens every year for these schools. Seriously read their financial reports, some even flat-out stating how they plan to make money of testing and selling textbooks to those who do not do well. They lobbied for policies so the education system made money for them, and it is not a democrat or republican problem, it's an everyone problem. Obama and Reagan may disagree on almost everything, but not for the profit of these companies via our tax dollars.

We live in an age where schools, especially colleges, just want to get as many people that make them look prestigious as they can. These measures are taken with standardized tests like the SAT, where they measure how much you know the day you take it, rather than what you are capable of.
No way to weed out bad teachers. Majority should not even be around kids to begin with. Most are poorly educated and have no mental capacity to teach a room full of kids all at once. Public education has a herd mentality, one size does not fit all but they try to shove all of us into the same glove anyway. You'd think if something isn't working it is time to stop, but public education only makes it worse instead. Also, there's no way to reform public education. It is running exactly how it was created to run. Stop trying to change it and instead stand up against it. The public education system is poisoning family relationships, childhoods and dismantling the family unit. It is toxic to the family, the environment and the community.
