Public Education Today

For my US History class, I had to draw a propaganda poster on pretty much any modern or historical issue. I chose to do mine on how public education is today and the rest is pretty self-explanatory. Since I procrastinated until the last minute, I had to draw this all in one afternoon so it's probably not my best.

I'm not trying to cause a **** storm or anything, I just thought I would share. If you don't like it, just thumb it down.

Oh, and I'm not exactly sure if I should post this in the oc-comic-maker channel

Jesus ******* Christ. Not this **** again. I'm just gonna repost my argument from whenever FJ originally had this argument, because it needs to be said.
"Our school system is not broken.

What is broken is society. Morality and a sense of right and wrong.

In high school, I could never understand it. Kids said all the time " I dun gif a fuc." When I finally understood the pidgin english, I realized they didn't care.

I am not spectacular, I worked hard in school, I got good grades. I knew it would pay off in the future, I felt a sense of accomplishment when I got an 'A' on a class, or made the honor roll.

The only ******* difference from me and these ******** kids, is I had a parent who tried.
Who raised me as a friend, but not to a point where I was out of control. There was a mutual respect. And in that, I was taught the right morals and values, and to respect others.

This is not the case for most of my peers. Parents don't think it's their responsibility to teach their kids. Some parents shout and curse and fight around their kids. One could only look at a recent .gif that made it to the front page of a young mother literally throwing her baby so she could go ' **** some bitch up.' Society is degrading. Morality is dead.

Don't blame the ******* system that janteel and shaniqua don'twant to learn algebra. I went through the system, I turned out fine. Everyone could do what I did, try as hard as I tried, if these kids were actually taught the value of hard work and respect by their parents. Instead, they're taught the value of some dank kush, nikes and "cred."

Sex is sensationalized, young mothers are made, and it gets worse. You think kids are bad now? Just ******* wait. 10 years from now you'll want to slit your ******* wrists over how disrespectful and goddamned stupid these little ******* are. "

Out of curiousity, BnB, are you a college student?

I'm 17 and still in highschool, but I think you got the wrong idea about the post.   
   
My whole point is that our education system only seems to care about test scores and not actually educating people (mainly because of No Child Left Behind). For example, standardized testing has made it to where every single student is hold to the same standards. It may seem like a good idea at first, but what people who have have a cognitive disability, speak entry-level English, or have speech or language delays? And it doesn't even acknowledge students social or economic problems.   
   
Furthermore, we're basically being taught how take tests. Schools receiving funding based on their students test scores. So teachers just teach students whatever is on the test and the student's just need to regurgitate the answers. We're barely taught anything tangible, and we're not being tested on if we actually understand or retain any important knowledge or on our critical thinking skills.    
   
Of course they are going to be students who don't give a 						****					 about school or their grades, but that isn't my point. Our overall quality of education is has been watered down with standardized testing.

Hmm? How so?

I don't disagree with you or anything, but if you think my art is bad maybe you could offer some constructive criticism on how I can improve and tell me what exactly you don't like about it.

How does standardized testing hold you back?

If you can't pass a standardized test, no child left behind is pushing you forward.

An education system that treats us all as an identical group to be tested with the same damn repetitive methods, rather than to be treated as individuals is a system that only crushes what we're all capable of.

whenever I see a cartoony things like this it bugs me when there's not an equal amount of detail all over. King of the hill bugs me especially. Characters simple, no shading, and them bam, **** load of unnecessary detail in background.

I think the picture would say so much more if you had all the chains symbolizing student debt.
since that's the only one that makes sense.

I'm just gonna put my two cents in here just for the hell of it.



blacknbluebrony, I agree with your statement.

I don't want to call myself a genius, because I know I'm not, but what I can say that I was was intelligent. I finished worksheets and reading assignments that we were given in class earlier than the other kids, so I would get bored. I was forced to stay inside during recess and I had to sit on my hands in class because I was disrupting the other students, trying to ask them questions, or trying to ask the teacher questions, such as how a black hole worked (I had heard about it from my grandfather, and I was fascinated with those kinds of science-y things). I was punished for asking questions and "disrupting the class."

Yes, the school system works for some, but the flaw is that the system focuses on those that need the help most. For people like me that were a step ahead of the rest of the class, we were forced to wait and learn at a much slower pace than what we could have been learning at. Not only that, but I was truly afraid of going to school and getting yelled at: I didn't want to ask questions, and I didn't want to participate.

Again, I'd really like to reiterate that I'm not here to talk about "OMG I'm so intelligent, you guys, give me attention." I'm saying that I don't agree with how the school system is run, and for the people that are ahead of the game, the system is such that they are required to learn at a lesser pace than what they could be learning at.

Oh yes our education system is so terrible, how will we ever have a bright shiny future?



While I agree that there is a lot of **** I don't like about our education system (like no child left behind and high tuition costs) we are not ENTITLED to higher education. I teach in a classroom where we have heating, air conditioning, each child has access to technology, we get new books ever 3 years, and students get free lunch if they apply for it. I will say it: WE. ARE. FORTUNATE.

With that mentality, no one can complain except for the people who are the absolute worst off. Yes, there are education systems far worse than ours, but that doesn't mean that ours doesn't have flaws.

I hate the fact that I worked my ass off for my diploma, and the red-neck ********** that goofed off for the last four years got the same thing. I feel like my accomplishment means nothing, and it really doesn't.

I know what you're getting at,and I feel betrayed by the system as well,but I realize its' function:
It tests the dedication and ability to follow the most general path.one that the greatest part of the students are able to follow.
one can either scale the obstacles in ones'way,or figure out how to find the closest path,or even forge a new one.
cross your obstacles or avoid them,but never ******* stop running.
I don't know what your path is,heck,I'm not even exactly sure what mine is,but I know my strenghts and weaknesses,and I halfway know how to utilize them.

stop seeing your fate as a straight line,or even a branched path,the form of your fate is grander than that.

I'm sorry for the metaphors and stuff,but I think this is the most clear way to deal with the topic for me

During high school I actually had a student councilor tell me that I couldn't be placed in regular level classes because the school was getting funding off of me due to the fact that I had a hearing disability in grade school and that it was still on my student profile in the system.

You start feeling a stigma when your friends in normal classes ask you why you aren't in AP classes and why the kids in remedial classes ask why you're in there in the first place. Because of my experience with the educational system, I have very little respect for standard level education.
