I hate to argue here. There not great. I don't deny that. They think diet sodas will help us lose weight, they think being assholes with 0 tolerance will "help" students do better.
I agree there shitty in that respect, but I learned things. I made my fucking teachers think. I can't tell you how many questions i asked different teachers that everyone else groaned at or outright busted out making fun of me, and in the process I had stumped the teacher, and made -them- think. Then the whole class learned something new, or in a best case, the teacher came back the next day with new information for us becuase they did not know the answer.
I admit I didn't like school a whole ton. But I wasn't an asshole. I can't tell you how many "shitty" schools aren't shitty, the students make it hell on the faculty and they stop tolerating the bullshit and make their lives miserable. The kids are fucking dickweeds for no apparent reason, always giving shit and lip to any faculty and especially the security guards.
I'm not trying to say every school is the same. Or that it's ALL the kids. But people seriously need to take a little fucking blame off the school system. We pay the teachers nothing, and give them 25:1-40:1 class sizes, full of ungrateful spoiled fucking dicks, who most of the time enjoy getting sent to the deans office just to get them out of class. They raise hell constantly, fight like baboons, and then we blame the teachers for not doing their job.
Again I'm not saying it's all one or the other, but we want to put 95%+ of the blame on the faculty or school system and it's simply a childish thing to do. Parents need to stop relying on schools to raise their kids, and the kids need to stop, or at least lessen the amount of bullshit they give. Not to mention we need to revamp how we fucking do things so 60% of the time were not studying for retarded, anti-logical "standardized" tests.
