[It's like night here and i just had to type this down as it's been bothering me for months... So it's basically just night rambling. Ignore if you like].
About this for a long time and....
One thing that keeps bothering me about school is the grading system. They pretty much just look at you as stupid if the grades are bad. What if you know the stuff, but have a hard time writing it down? Or you are more on the creative part of the subject and could have shown or talked about it rather than writing it down.
We think differently from one another, and judging people by a number/letter that they got in a subject sounds so wrong. Just because you got top grade in a subject some other got bad in and suddenly you are being bullied for being smart.
Searching for a job with only half good grades? Forget it! In many cases people look at the grades you hand in rather than the ambition you have and other things that means nothing. You may be excellent at holding presentations and have good ides for new things, but if you don’t have the right grades for it you have a low chance than maybe a guy that have top grades, but maybe he lack the ide skill you have.
Artist’s and people that work around the creative line often have to give in a portfolio. And in my view that’s a lot better for them in case they have bad grades, but wow do you have a lot of potential for my poster or similar things. Sure, they look on the grades as well, but some places that’s not what’s important.
Over half the things we learn at school have we never once used again. Analyzing a poem or something… When are we gonna use that again if we work with engineering? When was the last time you used algebra in every day situation?
Things like learning how the economy works or saving’s etc, would be more useful learning. We have a show that is basically people that have lost their track on the economy and need help getting on the right track. Most people that are on that show are young ones. Don’t this send some sort of message that maybe we should learn our teens more about the value of the economy and how it works…
I flat out failed math and 2 other subjects and it makes me a bit angry that analyzing poems, understanding what the message is in that one novel is is just straight out crap. When will i ever use it again?? It’s not like i will sit down read a novel and go “i wonder what the hidden message is in this” You can simply do a google search and there you have it. I’m scared.. I’m deadly scared for what will happen when i apply for going on one school here with Graphic study’s. It stands simply “3 year of passed high school” sure i have that, and i only failed on the filler year, but it’s not making me feel any better.
There’s no wonder really that people drop out of school. The pressure can be to much for many (including myself) and that teachers and government’s keep going on like “they should only prior school, forget being social, no job for you. Oh, but did we mention the school’s will cost you shit load of money?” We have a word here called “Forever student” it’s that you just can’t pay back the government what you have borrowed for the schools and just keep being a student rather than trying to get a job and pay back what you own.
Something need to be done about this. Many people from what i have heard and seen get stressed and depressed that if they don’t get the top of something they are looked down as stupid and should just apply for a work at a store than what they want to educate yourself in. And by that a lot of what we learn at school is not even half as useful as other things that could be learned.
Again this is MY opinion, you may disagree and that’s cool, tho i’m not going to have to end up in a discussion if the person can’t be civil about the case.
