    So there I was, sitting in science class, when I realized how much school sucks! We go there day after day, learning things that half of us won't use in the future! Sure there's some things we need to know, but not all of it! That's why university/college is way better, you only do thing that you need! But that day will come, until then, I just have to wait in hiding, until the "opportune moment" :ihih: . For those of you who don't know what I mean, you will........................... you will...

    Dunno what you've been told about college, but you have to study tons of crap you don't need. English for CompSci majors, etc.

    </dropout angst>
     

  3. school is far from useless. i used to think the same thing. "how the hell is sequential math going to help me in police work?!?!?!" or "I DONT NEED TO DO FRIGGEN PERIODIC TABLE BS FOR BEING A COP!!!"

    youd seriously be suprised! and college? its not all that its cracked up to be. there are still manditory classes or "prerequisits" that EVERYONE has to take unless you took AP classes in HS. so youre gunna be in english, social studies, math, ect regardless of youre major

    :sick: atleast i can offically say "NO MORE TEACHERS NO MORE BOOKS NO MORE TEACHERS DIRTY LOOKS!!!!" because i am FINISHED with it!:ciappa:

    You do need basic math skills and you do need basic English skills. You need higher level math and English for college. This is why there are college prep classes and then... well... just, I guess, remedial classes. History is important so you at least some understanding of the world. No, you don't need ALL of it, but you do use it, whether you realize it or not. While college may be better, you're still required to take GEs. You HAVE to take English 101 where I go and you must take an Intro to Bio class. You must take a math class and you must take a history class. I don't mind the English and I love math. I hate bio and I'm not all that crazy about History.

    College ain't that good. Okay so the lecturers don't treat you like little kids but like.. you still have to do some pretty pointless stuff. Photography = make a journal...what photographers make journals? How would making a journal writing about other photographers make us better photographers?

    Yes, I'm pretty pissed off at my photography department at the moment, their screwing everything up.. I could do a better job at running the thing.

    I hated School, seriously i absolutely hated it. From Infants (nursery) right through to Uni... It wasn't that i was a poor learner i did very well - i just hated the whole environment, deadlines all that crap.

    My overall attendance was absolutely shocking, i used to skip so many classes.

    Wow, nice role modling. I know what to do in high school next year.

    Yeah I HATE Social Studies, it's taught so we don't repeat history, it's not like I can repeat history when I'm a kid.

    Uh, the classes in college are much better than the classes in high school. For writing assignments, you're given topics to write about, but they're so broad that it's easy to find something you're interested in proving. The way math is taught is way better.

    As for required courses, at my school, there are a few types of classes that you may not want to take (Like everyone must take the same biology class, the same English class, and almost the same history class), but for your GEs there are TONS of classes to choose from. For instance, in the Math GE category, there is a class that revolves around math all around the world. There is also a class that revolves around math in art. In the physical science category, you can take a class on natural disasters or dinosaurs or the physics of music. Sure, these classes are not at every college, but you're bound to find a class you'll enjoy in each GE category no matter what school you go to.

    Then there are people who would rather be learning from a book than learning from a teacher, and I guess that's fine too. I personally love school, especially now that I'm a junior and pretty much done with GEs. I look forward to going back to school at the end of my breaks. I'm going to miss it when I graduate and have to start working. I wish you could get paid to go to school.

    Up until sixth form I never really liked school much. I suppose it was because I was studying a bunch of subjects I never cared about. For example, everyone in Wales has to study Welsh up to GCSE, but I didn't see the point in it since everyone in Wales can speak English anyway, and I've never used it since I finished. Art and music were a waste of time for me because I have almost no creativity at all, and I dropped the Design Technology subjects at the first chance I could.

    Sixth form I preferred though, because you can narrow it down to the subjects you're actually interested in. Saying that, I ended up dropping out of Computing. :lol: I completed A-levels in Maths, Physics and Chemistry (three subjects I did like) and now I'm doing Physics at university. It's great, although I prefer some fields of physics to others. Uni is much better than school, in my opinion.
