what’s wrong with today’s society

By @ShadowFang17

school

I’m unable to talk to my father about this, because he doesn’t believe me when I try. He constantly tells me how he would gladly switch with me to where he goes to school and I go to his work, and to be honest, I would gladly switch with him too even though I don’t know what he does at his job.

That would be a lot less stressful. or he starts saying how he ‘walked both ways, in the snow, up hill’, which yeah, I can see that happening seeing as he grew up in Ohio, but how does that even relate to school being stressful? It’s not.

There’s tons of people who are depressed and suicidal due to the unneeded pressure and stress of school, who knows how many have actually taken there lives due to this earthly Hell that young people are forced to go to five or more day’s, of the week.

There are approximately 24 hours in each day. 8 of them are spent at school for all the unneeded classes to take place. Some may have after school or before school things to attend so that adds about two to three hours more to that, and then after all of that’s all over with we have hours upon hours of homework that we need to complete for the eight or more classes that we are forced to take against our will, which we’ll say lasts about 1.5 hours of homework for each class as a very rough estimation. we may have out of school things too like jobs or church or out of school sports which usual last about 1 to 4 hours. We’re also growing children, we need time to socialize so that should take about 2.3 hours out of the day. And they pressure us to do clubs in school, the more, the better because it looks better on our transcript so that takes about 1 or more hours our of our daily lives depending on how many clubs we end up joining. And because we’re still growing we’re pressured to get 8 hours of sleep because it’s healthy for us, but there’s no time to do so, without the 8 hours of sleep that we are supposed to get, is approximately 28.3 hours. So where does that leave time for sleep? That’s a trick question, it doesn’t.

Almost all of my friends have weekly all nighter to be able to finish all of their unneeded homework.

Oh, and did you know that people can die due to lack of sleep?

We try to tell people who don’t go to school and learn, but they don’t believe us. they think that we’re just little kids that are just over exaggerating, don’t know anything and are only trying to get out of doing school.

When is this going to change?

When are adults going finally to believe us and help fix this problem?

    While I do believe school is important I feel that homework is very unnecessary. Most people look up the answers anyway, and some people don’t focus on it. Over all I think it’s a little bit of a wasted activity, and as most homeworks are graded for completion only I would not be surprised if people just write any old answer.
