School: AKA Child Abuse

          I hate school. I literally hate school more then anything or anyone. The thought of school makes me cringe. I guess the first reason is the fact that I'm not really a morning person. I need my sleep and considering I cant fall asleep till 2 in the morning anyways, going to bed late and waking up early don't add up. Its child abuse. In all seriousness though, teachers and anyone with any knowledge knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And since I wake up the latest i possibly can with just enough time to shower and get ready, I don't have time to eat "the most important meal of the day". On top of that, everyone old always talks about how they wish they were young again and how we should make the best of it when we have the chance. What chance? Going to one party during a 2 week break and one after exams the entire year? School is supposed to help you learn and strive for success in grades, yet they give you homework. Whats the point of even having school if your just going to makes us learn and do more work then we do in school, at home! So when I get home now, I do homework for an hour and a half then go to work, or if i don't work that night I spend all of my time working on past-due projects that I haven't done yet because of work! School needs to start later, so we could possibly eat, or just don't give us booklets bigger than dictionaries. Torturing us by being tired, or not having a social life, it all adds up. School = child abuse.


  1. Very passionate, it's obvious you hate school, who doesn't? They should make school start an hour later, and finish an hour later. Great post!

  2. Crazy hyperbole! I think most people, especially those who are denied access to education, would vehemently disagree with you. Perhaps the way school is run needs to be examined. In fact, there are many educators out there (including myself) who are examining the flaws in the way education is "done" to students and trying to work within a system to make school meaningful to students. I recently read a statistic that 95% of kindergarten students love going to school, but by grade nine the number of students who like school is dismally low. When did you begin to hate school?
