Colleen My books are held close as I stare at the gilded upper class of secondary school. I am part of the other gang (those damned to discount department stores and cut-rate clothes). That smug clique glares back at me and with all the tormented sass they can muster, Amy jingles the keys to her new luxury car in my bus-riding face. She turns and laughs aloud with her friends behind sunglasses and unnatural make-up, barely concealing one helluva black eye. 991111

emily b i hate school. it's sunday night and i'm sitting here dreading school... everyone at my hates it. we ride to school in the morning and hope the bus will get hopelessly lost, because we'd rather drive around forever than get there. isnt there some problem when every kid i know hates school more than anything? 991212

to angry
to dead and without feeling
until your absence at the institution
would stoke the fires once again.
What?

Yes, yes, I know.

oodles You may all hate school, but I adore it. I believe that knowledge is key, and once you stop learning, you stop living. But school isn't just about learning academically, I've learned so much more than you could find in any book. I've made wonderful memories and amazing friends. And I can't believe so many people who claim to be intelligent and profound look at school with such a negative light. 000129

guitar_freak My school is like a prison. There are NO windows is the whole building. I have 4 hours of homework each night.

JBauer If you ask me... The reason so many of us hate our schools is that it simply starts too early robbing us of the most precious thing in most of our days... sleep. Sleep deprivation was used as a form of torture in the Korean war to lessen the resistance of certain American Pilots. But without at least some schooling I fear that the entire country would be dumber than they are today... hard to belive isn't it. 001207
...
guitar_freak If everyone didn't seperate themselves everything would be so much better. The only reason people are popular is because everyone else LETS them be. If so much of the school dislikes them, why do people let them walk all over your self-esteem? You don't have to. Who cares if a person doesn't get their clothes from the Gap and Old Navy? Who cares if they do? They are just clothes and one can't let themselves be put into catagories. The best friends are the ones who are not corrupted by the politics of popularity. Even if I go to school every day with the glares of the "popular" who used to be my friends, I realizes that I have something they never will. Individuality. I would rather have that then have all the friends in the world. 001218
...
twiggie freshman year i went to a catholic school. i hated most of the people there, but i found a group of friends that kept me sane. (and surprise, the catholic group still remains to be my best friends). sophmore year i went to a public school, thinking it'd be better than the catholic one. i was so wrong. i can't imagine staying there longer than i did. i hated everything about it. the principal was an ass, most of the teachers didn't like me, and why? because i didn't shop at american eagle or the gap. i thought how pathetic the "popular" people were, to think that they were better than everyone. to think that they could talk to me as if i were lower than them.

i love the school i'm at now though. it's an art school. what you wear is the least of everyone's concern. there'll always be the people who believe they are better than me, but i've learned to push that aside.

...
cyb Good thing we arent students in japan or korea where the student suicide rate is the highest in this universe....I think pub schools should have uniforms and dresscodes AND if your score is a D or F then you should get booted.....I always thought free education shouldnt be for EVERYONE...Its a privilige not a prison sentence....Take it or leave it and see where you end up. 010129
...
*spoons* dude uniforms and dress codes why thats fucking dumb because if people think they are better by how they dress now they can still show it in every fucking way like by the name brand of there pens! there jewely there hair they can show it down to there fucking socks no matter what you do you cant stop people from expressing them selves you couldnt lock each of us in a bubble and call us equal. What ever happened to the freedom to express ourselves and if you got booted for d's and f's that wouldnt be a public school and its not mandatory you do well its an offer you either realize what its there for or you fuck around and end up screwed later on. as for the japan and korea those are the places that have the strict dress codes and they arent allowed to express themselves as much as we are and every one has to have there hair cut a certain way. Im glad we dont have uniforms because its more money you have to spend on clothes you dont want Part of public schools is that you get to express your self in most ways and there are plenty of stuck up private schools for the rest 010129
...
guitar_freak so yes school should be voluntary, but UNIFORMS?!??!?!?! WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU THINKING!!!!!! Forced to wear dumb ass clothes and be just like everyone else. a fuckin drone. Japan and Korea are forced to wear uniforms and have their hair a certain was. NO WONDER the suicide rate is the highest. Ever think there is a fucking REASON for that? Sorry, don't mean to stomp all over your opinions, but i enjoy thinking for myself. wearing specific clothes.ahg 010129
...
cb Well if there are other ways to express yourself than why not go with uniforms.....Im just saying that after reading all the previous opinions about status based on clothes from the nearest GAP, I thought that dress code will eliminate all the status problems and that way students can focus on learning and not what she or he dared to wear or not to wear. And about the korean and jap students i forgot to mention the amount of hours that stufdents spend on their academics....(at least 14 hours a day, enough time to get ready for school&bed,and sleep)That is why their suicide rate is the highest...... 010129

twiggie i've been to a school with a dress code.
they didn't have it so everyone would look the same, or so that people couldn't express themselves (although it sometimes felt like it).
they had it so the school looked neat, and everyone had a clean appearance. althought that is even futile, because if you aren't a neat clean person it's going to show no matter what.
just by taking a glance around you can tell who shops where, who has money, and who tries to step around the dresscode in every which way.
while i hated the dresscode, i'm just glad there weren't uniforms. i've had enough of those for a lifetime.

To think, 2 more years til graduation then time to leave home. No more buses home, just stuck in mom & dad's house again. Sigh.

Jesse and Caryn were in the library already and they helped her with her trig homework. Waving to Geoff and Mandy in the hall she made her way to the science labs to do her lab. She had a test in history on Wednesday at 11 am and so she and her friends went to one of the class rooms to study, ocasionally paging a tutor in their motorized cart to help them. But at last the day was over... Zoe thought to herself I'd rather be at school. 020415

Melissa I don't mind school. Well maybe I do, but anyway I know If i want to be a success in life I need an education, and actually learn something.
If you know it or not, school realy is important to everyone. And maybe some of that stuff you learn, you may never see it again, but its nice to know, so you dont walk through life with only street smarts, you need intelligence. It's good to know what your talking about. A persons brain can hold an infinant amount of information, the possibilities are endless, so make use of it. Once some of you actually graduate high school, and maybe go on to college, you will know what I am trying to say.

niska the truth about school: there's no such thing as a permanent record.

Once you're done all of it, and have to WORK for a living, no one will even care what was on your college transcript. You could have an F in the thing you do better than anyone else (like me) and who's ever going to know? it's experience that matters in the 'real world'.

School is a socialization process. So don't waste it with your head always in the books, OR the clouds. You must find a happy medium.

if you were home-schooled, you'd learn just as much, the only differnce would be you'd miss the prom. and probably have no friends... and never meet any cute boys...

So, stay in school, even if it sucks.

I got laid!...then it would be good...I have no idea who they were, if there was a condom, or if they had diseases ..... then its bad....
Yep, thats what school's like my senior year....thank god I'm almost out....I won't miss the expierence.... only the times I fucked up....cuz most of the time thats when I had the most fun....it isn't easy to be a girl who runs with the boys and keep up....but I did it and it was a damn good time.

learning lifes greatest lessons I'm in school right now. Study hall. I have come to hate this place. I am nearing the end of my mandatory four years here and I cant wait to get out. And when I say mandatory I mean its mandatory because my parents make me and society tells me I have to if I "want to do anything with my life." 030507
...
niska mandatory four years?

what about the mandatory FORTY you're going to spend WORKING for the rest of your life? if you want a life where you don't have to wake up and be someplace you don't want to be, i can't think of anything to tell you that would fool you into thinking it's all fun and rainbows... right now your biggest concern is getting the diploma so you can be a supervisor, rather than a sandwich-maker, but once you're done, there's nothing left but dog-eat dog, and without a paycheck, you can't survive in this world.

i certainly hope you realize that for the rest of your life, at least 8 hours of the day won't be as fun as the 8 you spend now, chillin' with friends, getting high and flirting with whoever you deem flirtable-with.

that's all i did in high school, and I have a pretty good job. only 8 hours a day. but i also went to college. that's four MORE years... UGH! does the insanity stop? no.

you should enjoy high school. it's the biggest free-ride you'll ever be on.

elisabeth42 I'm a high school dropout.

If I were still in school, I could enjoy the full benefits of being young. As much as I loathe the place, it offered lots of good opportunities that are harder to find now that I've dropped out. You know, like education, friendship, sex, drugs, various new situations and new things to try. Just a thought.

If only I could have put up with the bad shit. Unfortunately there's a lot of that in life. Not just at school. I don't want to drop out of life. I shouldn't have dropped out of school. I guess while I was there I overlooked the good parts, which was very easy to do because sometimes I felt like we were all just sheep in an institution training us to be part of the system.

But like they say, the best way to change the system is from the inside. If you drop out of the system and then try to change it, you're looked at as a threat and dealt with as so. But if you're in the system and you try to change it, you have a much better chance at succeeding.

nonlucid now that it's over (for now anyway) i kind of regret not paying attention, especially in english class because i think maybe i could have learned something from those people called teachers who know more than I do and will tell you more than willingly if you only ask

i'm going to miss the phenomenon called high school... where you can coast and not work ever, never do homework and pull off almost-As, the lack of freedom combined with lack of responsibility (but I didn't know!) a good place where you can still be immature and forgiven (most of the time)

very forgiving... too much perhaps. i've been spoiled by these two years, and will soon die
