Example of a rant:
I've never been fond of the way high-school 'education' works. During those four wonderful years, we're forced to wake up before the sun's even up (that's not illegal yet, so thanks Obama) and for what? First thing every morning, you have to make your way through the masses of loud, prepubescent teenagers who think they're the hottest thing to ever walk this planet. First class of the day is always run by the most needy teachers who expect you to put all your energy into the work they give out. Uh, no. I have about eight more classes after yours and need to save up energy. And let's not forget the ones with P.E as their first class. It is 8 o'clock in the morning. I do not have the energy for your exigency, dear teachers.
Back in my high-school days, we had this brilliant thing called EOCs, or End of Course Exams. I'm sorry, but you mean to say that all my hard work for those entire two semesters accounts for nothing if I fail the EOC? So.. The EOC is worth 70% of our course grade and you're not even going to give me a study guide? Please, introduce me to someone who remembers what they learned in a 45 minute class six months ago and I will completely stop thinking I'm smart. Standardized tests suck. You're not allowed to think outside of the box and three wrong answers can completely obliterate that A you worked hard for.
Writing prompts in creative writing classes? This so called "education" is not only stealing over half of my day, but it's also forcing me to write and have an opinion on topics I honestly couldn't care less about. So, yeah, you write the essay for the sake of your grade, and then what happens? You end up with a less than decent score because your ideas "sucked". They made you write about something of THEIR choice, only to judge YOUR ideas. Mind you that these "writing" classes are meant to bring out the writer in students, but instead those classes are ruining the passion for writing in many of these kids. Give me a crap topic and expect a crap essay. How am I supposed to build a stable house out of twigs alone?
There is almost no way of balancing school, proper sleep, and a social life. If I want to get enough rest, that means I'd take naps in the afternoon once I arrive home from school, or sleep earlier. Sleeping earlier means less time for homework, less time to do things I enjoy, and less time for things I don't enjoy (like say, HOMEWORK). If I want to hang out with friends or go out, I won't have enough time to sleep or do homework. Also, forget about the possibility of a part-time job to gain experience in the real world when your hours are extremely limited.
I found myself having to cut this rant waaay down because the amount of things I dislike about school is tremendous. High-school classes should all be electives, with the exception of maybe one or two. If you're going to teach me useless things at least let it be relevant to my interests.
