    Public education system is garbage

    The public education system is pure garbage.

    Credits are quite retarded.
    So many requirements to graduate, which are quite useless. A fine arts credit? Why, just why. Speech and health and physical education, like what is that. The worst part is you do not even learn a thing and just waste time. Talk about education.

    School doesn't need to be 7-8 hours long, just 4 core classes, school would be done in 4 hours.

    My other beef is with foreign languages. Being forced to take 4 years of a foreign language in highschool or else you won't be able to graduate, what the actual fuck. the students are forced, so they just put as little effort as possible to pass, and end up wasting time and life. I have yet to see somebody who just gets straight A for 4 years and comes out of a language class fluent enough to watch news, read articles, negotiate prices, you know, mature stuff? Not "Hello. My name is John Doe. Nice to meet you"

    Even my brother who learned Spanish for 6 years including IB courses couldn't even play a spanish Zelda translation without difficulty. After a few hours he already had 3 pages full of words he didn't know or sentences he couldn't understand even if he knew the words.
    lol.

    A lot of school is a waste of time, when it doesn't have to be. Sad.

    I barely passed french, the only thing I know how to say is "Bonjour jai ma pelle Jeremy" which isn't even spelled correctly. Quebec is the shittiest part of Canada IMO, and it would be a disservice to every other Canadian province to seriously consider them Canadian.

    The _ONLY_ thing to take from HS is the math, physics and (maybe) chem. Everything else is complete shit. I have used none of everything else in first year university.



    There are two types of tragedies in life. One is not getting what you want, the other is getting it.

    If you wake up at a different time in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?

    I quite agree. I find English and the History classes quite useless, especially considering I plan on going into engineering. Ironically they have the most homework lol!

    I'm a second year student in German, and I still feel like I'm a 2nd week student. Man, being forced sucks.

    I hate French. It's not logical imo. Too many rules in that stupid language.

    The reason why they make you learn extra shit is so that you can be stressed out of your mind and then get used to it when you are a adult.

    You see, in a school setting when all you do is drill grammar and vocab, becoming good is the last thing you'll do

    This is so true. The only language I can speak now is English, but I learned German and French too but I can't speak a word of those languages.

    I'm never really stressed though / School is pretty easy, it's just that I can't do anything but feel like I am wasting my time learning about
    "The speaker sends information to the receiver, which then the feedback goes back to the speaker and the cycle repeats. that is communication."

    we seriously learned that. like what, isn't that obvious? Why do I have to be forced to take a 4.0 GPA class when I could be taking a 5.0 GPA class which would actually help me in life. The high GPA classes like Psychology AP or Computer Science AP are optional but a 4.0 GPA class like Speech is mandatory, ok.

    You will hate life more, where you will be forced to actually do work or you will live a crappy life.

    It's the teachers and education standards fault
    If the standards weren't so shitty, then good teachers can teach students
    And good teachers can interest students into actual learning

    I completely agree, but courses which force you to partake in learning different languages allow you to explore areas that you most likely would never do. In my country, we're required to take French for one year and the rest depends on us. Personally, I believe that they teach bullshit and the only way to learn a foreign language is to have first-hand experience, perhaps spending time individuals who are fluent in this native language.
