Schools are Good. Or bad? 

If you are reading this, you have probably either been to school or are in school. I come in the latter category, unfortunately. Everyone hates school but everyone also knows that it makes you a better person. I agree, but at what cost? I think it is a very exorbitant cost.

School is supposed to be an institution that readies you to be an all-rounded, kind, compassionate and pragmatic person. The school I go to jubilantly ignores and forgets to develop those traits. Oops. #Roasted?

You might be thinking-“Oh, this is one of those rants where she will bitch about school.” Yes, it’s that rant and a lot more. Your school may be different from mine and I want to stay as deferential as I can but I am extremely knackered from the bullshit that the students have to go through in order to get a degree. Get a fake one!

Wait no, don’t do that!

The reason why I write this is that sometimes school is so demanding, ah, I know it makes you more punctual and venerable towards time but come one! For example, we had to write a lab report and my dear teacher rejected some reports just because they were not written on the paper she had requested us to write on.

That’s right. The plain paper doesn’t do it these days. It has to be the expensive one because plain papers are exactly what they sound like. PLAIN.

Who wouldn’t be angry about this kind of demand?

Another point I vehemently despise about MY school (yes, I don’t want to offend my readers) is that it ALWAYS shuffles our class. What for? We’ve found the people we want to hang out with and now we don’t want to start over. Being social does not entail changing the monkey’s cage anytime you feel like it.

We get adjusted to the teaching style of a teacher! And bam!! Shifted. To another class. To another school. To another country. I don’t know. Why can’t we be more stable? Why? Why does there have to be so much change? So much so that many people can’t handle it? They can’t handle and hence, are stressed. Stressed because they have no friends in the class they have been shifted to. You will counter by saying-“Make new friends, duh.” Well, done that, Sherlock!

It’s very difficult. However, it teaches us a lot of lessons a life without school would not manage to. School is like a bittersweet memory that you want to replay in your mind like a short movie but after some time, you just don’t want to.

You have to agree that the teacher who demands the specific kind of paper is DUMB. I feel devoid of adjectives tonight. Apologies.

I hate my school and I am excruciatingly eager to go to college!

But everyone has their bad days and I have mine. But that does not mean that I am urging you to hate school as well! School is profoundly beneficial and imperative. It gives us some unforgettable and valuable lessons. Some shortcomings should not force us to despise it. Yes, there is a mammoth difference between ‘hate’ and ‘despise’. Look it up, lazy!

What are the shortcomings of your school? Tell me. Feels nice to vent out anger and frustrations. Share your thoughts!
