It really pisses me off how many people have this mentality that school is waste of time, the teachers are out to get you, the administration is out to get you etc. Really pisses me off. Someone posted some long, not well thought out rant, that had more spelling mistakes than I could count, bitching about the administration giving him a court date for excessive tardies. While I think a court date is a little excessive the following comments sounded so ignorant. People were talking about how

the school made the parking lots inefficient just to make us late to class

Yes, yes they did do that. They purposefully made the parking lot inefficient just to fuck you over. NO THEY DIDN"T. Believe it or not, schools and teachers actually want to help you, not make your life difficult. The kid who was complaining said he had 32 tardies in the month of march. Yes 32, that means about a tardy a day. Then he goes on to say how it doesn't matter if he's only a few minutes late. Yes it does, it interrupts the teacher and distracts all the kids with the attention span of a goldfish. And then he said that it was because he was black. That just pushed me over the edge. The principle isn't out to get you because your black. Your race has nothing to do with it, you being a dumb ass has everything to do with it.

TL;DR: I like boobs

INB4 being mean to me :( and yes... yes I can inb4.

More than one each day. It isnt being late to school, but being late to class. So if he has 6 classes a day (for example) and 20 school days in the month, that gives him 120 possible tardies.

Stop worrying about how you look, and start worrying about how you play. Get out on the field and play paintball the best you can, not stand at home in front of a mirror trying to figure out if your jersey matches your eyes.

By "them all" do you mean kids or black people? Because I'm pretty sure one of those is still really really racist.

Probably a good idea. I'm on some pretty great cold medication and I'm getting the feeling that my judgement isn't at 100% - I'm gonna try and be more careful with my posting until it wears off.

I don't like school, but at the same time I recognize that it is necessary and we're lucky to have free education. All the kids that go out and party every night may be having a great time right now, but when they can't get in to a good college and end up going to a community college (nothing wrong with that) or drop out of college, they better learn to make a damn good burger.

Realistically, school is pretty stupid until you get into post secondary. Be that college, university or any kind or technical school.

Forced to hang around a bunch of fucktards for 12 years? No thanks bro. All of the bullshit they teach you, the dumb punk ass kids, and all the drama. Never would I wish that on any other being lol.

University has made the most recent years of my life easily the best bar none. The classes are more interesting, the parties are harder, the girls are smokin hot, and the people are just smarter and cooler to chill with. Maaaan ima miss this place. :'(

The ultimate truth in paintball is that the interaction between the gun and the player is far and away the largest factor in accuracy, consistency, and reliability.

And yes, Gordon is the sexiest manifestation of "to the front."

The only thing pointless about High School is the drama people create themselves.

Standardized tests also are pointless. Critical thinking is where it's at.

The most important thing you can learn is how to study and apply what you learn to the outside world. The application part though is sometimes never explained.

The unfortunate truth is that a lot of people who have degrees right now still get forced to work at McDonalds.

Also, about the being gone from school thing, I have over 120 absences this year.

I do actually know some teachers who if you get on their bad side will deliberately enforce stricter rules on you. Now, given most of the time the kids are problem children and need to be watched closely, but some kids get caught with the wrong group once or twice by the same teacher in a bad situation and get fucked over for the rest of the year. Believe it or not, some teachers actually are complete assholes. Not all, not even 1/8, but every once in a while you will come across the one teacher that just does not give a shit about their job and enacts overly strict punishments for the sheer reason just because they can.

Completely right.

Everything is about money. Doing well on standardized tests brings the school money. Kids are taught to learn something to do well on a test. Doesn't matter that they forget about it the second they walk out the door because they will never apply it.

I would say things like being able to fix a car, or knowing how to build a computer are much more important than knowing the ins and outs of logarithms.

Agreed on the above, completely honestly, I forget a lot of what I learn unless I'm interested in it, then I have a freakishly good memory, but that's not the point here, the point is that teaching to a test isn't what's going to educate kids, ask many adult over 35 what they remember from college or highschool and how much of it they've used, odds are they won't remember much, and haven't used much of it. Schools need to learn to teach more critical thinking instead of teaching to the test.
