I bet that's the way it worked out for the monkey in the comic, too.

but our education system is made so everybody can and is capable of doing it.
if your not capable then you get sent to a special school or get different treatment
so stop being lazy and do your work.

I'm just going to argue what you said because there's a million reasons why the school system fails. The problem with the "everybody is capable" is this, kids who have conditions but not mentally impaired such as kids with dyslexia still get treated as if they had a debilitating learning disorder, I know this from first hand experience. Kids with severe dyslexia (at least in my experience) get put into classes not specifically designed for them but designed for kids with debilitating learning disorders and kids who just don't give a ****. Dyslexics arnt stupid or retarded or incapable of lerning, they learn in different way, same with kids with ADHD. Yet who do people with dyslexia get put with? The kids who literally cant learn and the kids who choose not to learn. And who do they put with these kids? Teachers who are basically daycare teachers. It may be different regionally, but im in Maryland which is suppost to have the best school system in the country and so far it seems like a load of ********.

Tbh I think that the current system is flawed, but in the opposite way to you. Obviously I am not in the American school system being English, but I'm sure the ideas are the same. I was 'diagnosed' with dyslexia at school, purely because I ****** around and got distracted, and complained about not being able to remember ****. Once I realized that not ******* around would get me places, I concentrated and actually got down to work without distractions, this bumped by grades up, and when being tested again for dyslexia/ other educational disabilities I was told I had 'grown out of dyslexia'.

Clearly some people need extra time in exams due to English not being their first language, but those who perform badly because that can't be arsed shouldn't get an easy ride.


tl;dr: the reason people do badly is because they can't be arsed to get down to work

you're also forgetting that all mixed schools pander towards female students as that's who the curriculum is designed for, male students learn entirely differently to females and yet all are subjected to the same education.

So there are no successful women in the world?

And if women are being undermined, it's not because of the school systems. It's society as a whole (starting from the 40s... (1640s))

I'm in Maryland, too, and you're right.

Another thing is, if you're average, you get stuck with the average classes, which is full of annoying, ghetto, rowdy kids who don't give a **** about whether or not they pass, so not even the teachers take it seriously.

Bravo good sir. I have ADD (basically ADHD but I'm not hyper, just can't focus worth ****) and I just get lumped in with all the other students. Almost failing because I literally can't focus for more than a few minutes. An hour of actually doing schoolwork and trying to focus makes my brain practically shut down D:. Have this bunny as your reward for being awesome.

I know this is controversial, and controversy means red thumbs on this site, but I don't really mind. Students with dyslexia and ADHD in my country get given extra time for exams and stuff because they have a learning problem. That is the wrong thing to do. These kids will later have to go into a working environment where they won't get any special treatment and hence the grades they've achieved will be a false indication of how good they really are in comparision to other job applicants and suchlike. So yeah, everybody (within reason) should be treated the same in schools for the purpose of achievement in later life in my opinion.

You need to realize that the point of school is to prepare you for the real world. As someone who's been out of college for almost a year now, let me tell you something: the real world doesn't give a **** about your dyslexia or ADHD, and the sooner you realize you were dealt a **** hand and there's nothing you can do about it but adapt, the more successful you'll be in life.

The point of the school system is to educate you dip ****, school does not prepare you for the real world, nothing does. I know the real world doesnt care but does that mean the education system (the thing that helps you better cope with the real world) should dent give a ****? No. youre philosophy is the reason the education system is ****.

The problem is that if you're given special treatment your entire life, you'll get used to it. If you're given extra time in tests or easier classes because of a learning disability, you're going to get used to it. A company simply will never hire a person like that if there's other people to chose from without the government on their backs calling for affirmative action.
Also, the point of education is most certainly to prepare you for the real world. Would you mind explaining to me how a degree in mechanical engineering won't help you function in society as a mechanical engineer?

But as he said, they treat kids with these kind of problems special. They get their own class where they can learn at their own pace if they want to.
Some kids on the other hand really just need to do the work, is the problem.

that's funny, in Virginia it's the oppisite. unless the person has a mental handicap, every student stays with the teacher. My mom is an elementary school teacher, and out of 22 kids she has 5 with ADHD, 1 with Autism and 1 that is a vegetable. When the kids act up, she can't do anything but lecture them, because for the normal kids there is a set amount of warning you get before you get sent to the principal's office. However, with these kids you can't send them to the principal everyday because they were out of their seat, so she's powerless to discipline them. She tries to get the parents to help out but most of them are either deadbeats or get extremely defensive.

It could also go towards the way that teachers have to teach to the standards in a certain way, memorizing facts and **** while kids who are gifted musically or learn better through visuals are kind of screwed over in the normalization process of education. A kid could be a great artist but bad at memorization so if you cancel art programs people are gonna assume the kid's retarded

First of all: Every state in America says that their state has the best school system.

Second: desmondaltairezio is absolutely correct. Our education system is made so everyone is capable of doing it. If a person is NOT capable of doing it, then they are labeled with a condition. That's why they call it a condition!

You are somewhat right, too, ThePleasureman. Kids with these conditions do get screwed over, but there are always exceptions to the rule.

My mom is a kindergarten teacher, and she says the education system really went to the ******* once it became politically incorrect to hold back children.

It's not because of ADD or laziness, or bad teaching, or technology, because we have been teaching the same as we have been doing in the past.

There are too many kids going to the first grade, when their brains are not mature enough to handle the curriculum. Parents and principals are to afraid to tell the kids they are stupid, when in all actuality they aren't stupid at all, just immature.

ITT: Idiots whose educational experience is limited to their <=10 years of public school.

You're somewhat right right; the US *public* school educational system is now designed to meet the needs of its students and address learning problems as soon as possible. That isn't to say that the system always works, but that's what it is designed to do. This was not the case even 50 years ago, when even being left-handed meant you had to do your classwork with your left hand tied behind your back so you learn to be right-handed.

every healthy, functioning human being has the brain power to pass a standardized test... unfortunately our country (the US) is lazy as **** and kids dont try hard enough and get bad grades. when this happens it becomes the system's fault for some reason, and somehow parents and kids aren't held accountable at all (P.S. i am prepared for red thumbs and i have already applied the ointment)

It's not the students, the problem is that teachers don't teach us to study or to be well prepared for school at a young age. For ex. when you go from Algebra I to Algebra II they reteach Algebra I the first quarter, instead the students should know how to do this. But guess what we don't get taught to study or to take school seriously because of the slow pace they teach us. Plus the government can't give a **** about the future because they know there is non for this country.

Truth. We have to rely on the ideal that most teachers will appeal to multiple intelligences, (Visual/Spatial, Verbal/Linguistic, Logical/Mathematical, Bodily/Kinesthetic Intelligence, etc) when teaching the curriculum so all types of students are able to benefit from the lesson, however; there are limits as to how much an educator can vary from their plans and many are unwilling to. Honestly, in most classes we have the same exact same schedule of a lecture/powerpoint and notes. This is efficient for me, personally, however; for others, it isn't, and it's up to the teacher to switch over to an educational movie or even project from time to time.

When I went to school, as far as I can remember, the rest of the students were also human children. We didn't have other species attending my school, there weren't any super-mutants who weren't so good at maths but awesome at flying or some ****. They were all other kids who would benefit from learning life skills and base knowledge of different subjects just as I did.

My school must have been special.
