My new art teacher told me " art is not about expressing yourself, it's about getting that grade"... Now I am forced to do something what I don't want for my exam...

Author Phenia TV ( ago)
Adults tell us we are immature. Maybe we want to be. Maybe we don't want to become what they tell us. Maybe we want to create and show our skills instead of sitting down and writing numbers. Maybe we want to have fun, and socialize. Maybe we don't like what mature looks like.

I am a child 12 years old. I am a straight A student, but so is basically everyone else in my school. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? Encouragement? I don't feel great when I get an A, because I know it is based off of standardized tests, that teachers base their curriculum on. We are studying for the states some DECEMBER and the come in MAY. They say they use the tests to "see how you are doing" but they are just trying to make their school look good! I am smart, not to brag but to prove something: I don't even have a clue what do be when I grow up. I bet when I grow up I am going to die of carbon monoxide poisoning because I would have never been taught not to close the garage door while your car is on. We are taught algebra, and calculation skills, while we can easily access a calculator on your phone! Shouldn't we be learning how to pay god damn taxes!

I will shove this video into every government official and every teacher in the world's damn faces until they change the system if I had the chance to spread how bad school is.

Author Kwon Glsm ( ago)
Great rhymes snd cool effects, theres pretty much effort given in this video i see. But lets be honest: how the hell you want to find the teachers and the money to teach individually? And how do you think would a class work if there were no strict rules about where to sit and when to speak? It would definitely end in a chaos ! I understand that there are students liking this video because they are feeling missunderstood ,but as a student myself i think we should be thankfull that we have the opportunity to be educationed,and before we criticise the school system ,which is a dream for some children of other countries,we should make the best of what we have.

In math class, I feel so stupid. I don't understand anything, and everyone else is so smart. My teacher doesn't understand that I need things explained in different ways. I'm scared of failing, I have bad anxiety, and I just feel so done with trying to understand math.

*I know why the school system is like that read that comment.*

Guys I think it's quite obvious why school is like that. There are alot of subjects in schools. I have about 14. I don't believe students get stressed for a normal test or homework. It's the *amount* of it that makes you stressed. Don't talk about the finals. This is where the real shit hits right in the belly and brain. School is made like this so only "good students" will pass the exams. Good students = more productivity for the government. Bad students = probably will drop out and find a shitty job at Burger King or KFC. They want some students to fail don't you see it. If we were all doing what we wanted to do I think we would have had alot of artists or mucisians. Doctors or engineers. And alot more. But if we all did that then who would work at the shitty jobs? That's right no one. The government has that all planned. They want people to fail in order to keep balance between good jobs and bad jobs. Fucking assholes. If they want a fucking burger they can make one themselves. This world is fucked. Weak up people.

The world is dying...precious resources going day by day...we need people to change the earth,people who can find new ways to get power;ways that do not harm the earth...and the government think that a fuckin maths test would help! Teachers and schools need to encourage students to become imaginative... creative.So we can live a healthier lifestyle.

I want to help the Earth when I get older, or be an Interior designer, maybe a lawyer, or author. My school teaches nothing that will help me along these lines. I get As and I'm good at math and science and all that crap but it's not what I want to do with my life. I don't know how to learn about these things, so it makes me just want to give up and have a normal job, but if I do that I will never be able to live with myself

Some of the stuff he says I agree with; the whole 'one-size-fits-all' for students that are different is wrong, as well as students thinking their stupid because they aren't given opportunities to find their own passion or talents. However, I only partially agree with the idea that what we are taught is useless. Maths teaches us how to problem solve, English Literature teaches us to be analytical and look deeper and Science teaches us the ways of the world. While I agree not enough about paying taxes, raising kids, or how to perform first aid is taught, the old curriculum shouldn't be abolished.

i really want schools to be teaching children about important things, school brings me so much stress most of my hair fell out and i gained so much weight, and thats ALL because of school, yes i do have so manyyyy problems at home, but school is my main source of stress, a few months ago i was suicidal because of school and problems at home, I'm forced to learn things i don't enjoy, if u want me to learn things, make sure i like them, or i will literally want to kill myself, the fact the 1-2 % of suicides are because of school is horrible ! school should be helping, not killing.

Main part of school is education. If you want school to be fashion (like you say, upgrade make it to today world) is a fashion school. A school are good in current world because they offer what most people doesn't, knowledge. You are attacking only thing that separate us from stupid. I guess your viewers come from stupid reasons. And some of them are educated and they don't like your videos. So you better make them all stupid so they will keep watching whatever you are doing. Your videos are good but unrelated to earth. You are taking about possible future. Please make videos related to inspire people to do right thing.

It's good to see that someone touched this subject...I made this realization a long time ago but I knew that nobody would listen and even if they did what can we do with the government having so much power in their hands? We're just stuck in a box and the government and controlled media do their best to hide this. They always try to keep you at the bottom because they have a lot to win, they try to keep masses brainless because a smart mind is dangerous to their system because if a lot of the population would realise the bounds they have it can lead to a lot of damage to their system and lose the amount of power they have. But the majority of the population doesn't know this and they live a sad life because they think that this is the highest point in life they can reach, this leads to a lot of cases of depression and sadly even suicide.
Also people that are aware of their surroundings( hopefully like you) have a sadder life and less friends because is hard to find people that are at the same level of intellect as us in this world , but the majority of people are not so aware and they are happy with this abomination because they don't know how a different life could be.

I don't want to see my future kids go through the same crap school experience I did. Like come on people. Haven't we all figured out that high school was a huge joke? Let's focus on actual success and real progress in our children, not the required grades and classes you have to take. This is not life, it's just surviving. They are worth way more than a freakin math grade.

A fish doesn't have the mental capacity to know if it is stupid.  Furthermore, fish don't climb trees.  This is why this is a horrible analogy.  Human beings actually can do the work in schools.  It isn't some impossible feat like a fish climbing a tree.

Wow it sad that the only thing that the school system cares about is their reputation and Mess up kids minds. I think we should have our kids in the us go to school online and get them into some kind of sports program so we can keep their school life and socail life apart.

Really college is the only school worth attending because it teaches you how to get through life, or how to do something you will want to do as a job, high school and grade school arent worth anything really, when have you used your knowledge of Shakespeare outside of school, or your knowledge of finding x or using other forms of Algebra in life? Sigh, the school system is so flawed
