Conversation with my World History teacher today:
Me: Socialism does have some positive aspects.
Teacher: No.

Depending on how blunt it actually was, you might just have a horrible history teacher.
User avatar #200 to #162 - pianoasis (01/24/2013) [-]
It was a simple and assertive No as to make me shut up

If she's the one who brought it up, she's a ****** teacher.

I dunno, I like high school. I'm a senior right now, I have plenty of friends, I like my teachers, my school is pretty understanding usually, and I enjoy my life.

I feel like a lot of people hate high school (not all, of course) because they saw themselves as a "victim" the whole time instead of taking more initiative in their lives.

There are a lot of nerdy kids in my school like me. They get picked on...I don't. The difference is that I know the boundaries of annoying, or rude. They constantly say things that are kind of mean or condescending without even realizing it, thus people hate them. For most schools, if you stay out of trouble, mind your own business, and be nice to everyone, you most likely will go unscathed. Education opportunities are out there for everyone, the problem is that a lot of kids don't know how to shut their mouths and focus on school work sometimes. I have learned so much in high school that it's unbelievable to those who don't pay attention.

TL;DR School isn't so bad, the people in it just suck for the most part.

I hated high school and I took tons of initiative. I was 3rd in my class, a section leader in the marching band, one of the stars of the math team and a member of a philanthropy advisory board. The reason I hated it was because so many people were closed off. Everyone was too obsessed with gossip and their own little world to branch out and be an independent person. I still keep in touch with a few of my teachers but many of them just fell flat. Its not their fault though, the whole way we do education here in America is screwed up.
User avatar #134 to #128 - shannonrw (01/23/2013) [-]
Actually, I really think that the way we do education here is great. People mainly have an equal chance to succeed (with exceptions).

But yeah, people will be like that even out of high school though. That's just teenagers, not the school system or high school. Teenagers are just gossipy and everyone has different personality types.
User avatar #141 to #134 - darman (01/23/2013) [-]
Its not the gossipy atmosphere its the inability to get over one's self. In high school people are so self-absorbed they miss out on a lot.
We actually do have a pretty bad system. The basis for education in America isn't learning, its passing a test that has no real indication of what you know. I took the SAT/ACT when I was 13 and passed well beyond the national average because it was just a reasoning test. In America we focus on short-term memory, memorizing until the big test and then forgetting all but a few facts. Languages are messed up too as we teach them in segments instead of through immersion style learning. Now, everyone has to go to college to get a decent job but high school leaves many unprepared and without basic real-world skills like balancing a check book.

Middle Schools is the ******* torture institution. High School.... I enjoy High School, makes me actually not want to grow up... that and my various childhood tenancies.

Many of the great thinkers and achievers of our world were inspired by their courses through great experiences. High School and modern education does a detestable job of truly preparing and particularly nourishing the future generation of workers. That is unarguable.

The entire state education platform works as a factory: Standardized curriculum, standardized groups of pupils (age), and standardized teaching methods. At the end of the school-day, it is hard to see how one would have motivation to pursue outside educational interests; establishing that "great experience" which essentially crafts a person.

Despite going to one of the most rich districts in the US, I find spending eight hours a day in an institution, especially considering that it is such a waste of time, to be plainly dumb. The US government funds school districts by their attendance even though, by and of itself, compulsory daily attendance is not necessary for learning material. See how colleges work. How about funding based on performance? I think it's obvious to everybody that examines schools that money =/= performance.

Washington DC has the most school spending per capita, I believe. It's also full of ******* . As a result, the schools are one of the worst in the nation.

"No Child Left Behind" and its extensions are counter-productive. You can't get ghetto scum and those who simply do not wish to do well, to, get this, do well!

Personally, I liked high school. Although it probably helped that I live in an extremely unaggressive town.
#124 to #112 - midnightcat (01/23/2013) [-]
I can relate. I like high school socially. Most of the times academically too, but I do live in a very isolated area where literally nothing bad ever happens

I miss school, I've been graduated for almost a year now and I ******* miss it. I was all happy and **** when I first graduated but now I'm so unbelievably lonely. I can't have a job because of my Dad's work schedule won't coincide with that of any available jobs in my small BFE town. I have to watch my sister when my Dad's at work.
User avatar #108 to #105 - Das (01/23/2013) [-]
Grow some balls, move out of your Dad's, and get a job.
User avatar #109 to #108 - thebestofmurder (01/23/2013) [-]
I'm leaving when I'm 19, jackass. I'm going to the Navy. I'm not leaving until then because my sister is 8 years old and since my Mother died a couple years ago, she has nobody to watch her when my Dad is away. Perhaps things are a bit more complex then you might think.

High school here is relaxed as **** (Gulf islands BC is like that). Now the middle school here, on the other hand....

We have a nice huge sign in the front that says "a smoke free environment" which, since I have an allergy to cigarette smoke, made my freshmen heart feel content. One step into the bathroom, and there were so many lit cigarettes just.... sitting there. It was unbelievable.   
   
High School hasn't gotten any better either. Our principle went on a rant in September about how smoking is an issue and there should be harsher punishment. He even referenced the bathrooms. But guess what? NOBODY'S CHECKING THE BATHROOMS. There were midterms today and some douchebag stoner was just sitting in the bathroom smoking with one of those Workaholics bear jackets on.

You don't say.
I remember the moment I realized that, too. I was a sophomore. We were all coming out of the auditorium following a school-wide assembly. I was talking to this one guy I knew about how badly the school handled the whole thing, how, if they'd dismissed the classes separately and assigned different sections to different exits they could have eliminated the traffic jams in the hallways.
It just so happened that a teacher heard me criticizing the school magical fairy princessistration and reported me. I got sat down in the dean's office and lectured on my 'disrespect for my superiors' and was pretty much told that I wasn't allowed to criticize them.
High school is just a place where they teach everybody to fall in line and beat you into submission if you don't.

because high school isn't as much about learning as it is about fitting us for society. they will squeeze the last bit of rebellion out of you.

american highschools were kids get bullied, tortured and everyone wonders why they come into school one day and start shooting everything that moves. Entertaining
User avatar #136 to #95 - bluejupiter (01/23/2013) [-]
American High School, where if kids gets bullied they're supposed to report it instead of standing up for themselves in a way that would resolve the issue as opposed to making it worse.

For example, I got into a fight with a kid my sophmore yearbecause he just kept talking **** and spreading rumors. He threw the first punch, I threw the one that broke his nose. We both get suspended because "I should have ran away and gotten a teacher." **** that **** .

I just hope one of these days one of the guys that intend to shoot up the school decide to drive down to Westbro Baptist and play "god sent the shooter"

I go to a highschool in Western New York and last year a kid in my regents math class asked if we lived on the East or West coast of America. He wasn't kidding.

Meh, my high school wasn't too bad. Was picked on a bit, but nothing to get upset over.

Pretty much everyone I know that liked high school better than college was either a wealthy child that could afford a great private school, or an immature asshole that just missed being a cool jock/cheerleader/whatever,

Schools are in fact your future society, since all kids go there and learn how to act and form their personalities there... Calling High School sadistic is calling yourselves sadistic, checkmate.

my high school sucked. but I got out OK.    
   
I just think that people who went and live their life scorched by their high school experiences are idiots. they go like omg you dont understand I hate everyone blleehhe . same goes for this.. just shut the 						****					 up.    
   
I realize that high school is basically survival of the fittest. it's all about first impressions. I'm in college and I love it. people are so much more relaxing here.
