I recently came across this picture on my Twitter
(Which is browneyedgirl33, for those that want to follow)
And it just had me nodding my head and saying “YES!!!”
This is why I do not like school. This is why I dread coming here.
I don’t learn anything that is going to help me. That stopped after Elementary school when I learned to read and write.
I have to show up, do well enough to get a C in the class (because, you know, C’s get degrees) and that’s it.
Where is the passion for learning? Where are the skills and lessons I need for real life?
I doubt being able to find the slope of a formula is going to get me anywhere in life.
I once had to Google how to write a check.
Teach me how to balance a checkbook, and to budget, and to apply for a loan, and how to build credit.
THINGS I NEED TO KNOW.
Or make school more about learning and not just passing state tests and getting your numbers up.
Teaching should not be a profession looked down upon and kids should not be dreading to go to school.
It should not be a waste of time.
The education system sucks.
