I grew up in an inner-city school and nothing was like that for me. Maybe I'm just different maybe it's just because I'm white. Maybe my school was too poor to hire more security officers. But it's getting worse. The kids are getting worse. There were so many fights by the end of my Senior year, it was unbelievable. And you're told not to fight back or else you'll be suspended. I'd rather be suspended than have a brother or some honkey bitch take my teeth. I got suspended for waving my diploma, (we get it before school's out.) I had to take my final tests after school let out for the Summer. And believe me, I fought the thing. I went to the super-intendant of the public schools. I had video and photo evidence.

It never bothered me because I didn't let it and I refuse to believe that I am somehow special. Maybe I have a superiority complex. So what? Administrators want less responsibility. That's how it always is. People want to streamline their lives and make them as easy as possible, and if that means finding someone else to blame, they'll do it. It was my Principal's last year there, too, before he retired. He checked out wayyyyy before graduation. Fuck him.

Is it a new phenomenon? Of course. It started just a couple years ago, while I was already in High School. And I'm probably not the best judge for whom is getting suspended in elementary schools today, but damn. I'm thinking about homeschooling my kid(s), if I ever have one.

But I also blame the kids. Each generation is dumber and more ignorant. Parents are teaching less and less to their kids. I don't know whose fault that is, though.

tl;dr

IDK, what can you do about it? It's like one guy said at the end of the film, we adopted a set of rules for teaching kids in school and believe it is the best possible way in the whole world to teach kids.

How would someone even begin to fix the system with all that's in the way now. Home schooling is great, but your kids will then lack in social skills and street survival lessons.

It seems like it's about the same as it has always been. There are just different fads.

Well, now that gets into my thought that no one can change anything no matter what, humanity's gonna be their own end, :philosophicalmasturbation, et cetera. Smart people are always gonna be outnumbered. I don't know what I can do about it. I don't know how to change things. But I know it's wrong. :howardbeale But I know things have to change, or else America's just gonna continue to spiral into fucking oblivion.

Part of me says "fuck it" and leave every person to be out for themselves. But this disgustingly human-sympathizer part of me is just so fucking angry and sad about all of the wrong things in the world.

I don't believe that. Not for a minute. I was a goddamn recluse until my Junior year in high school. I had one friend. A parent can make his or her kid go outside or take them to the playground and tell them to leave the house and not come back for a few hours. Not all homeschoolers and unschoolers are coddling bitches. I know a few kids that were homeschooled.

I haven't lived for an entire century, so I don't know how all the trends have been treated. I don't have a frame of reference and know that only the people that make the media can tell the story. But I gotta believe it, man. I just gotta. I don't want to think about the world just cycling through its incompetence.

Wait till you think about the war on adults.

It's all for a reason, sit down, do your work, and shut the fuck up.

By home schooling, do you mean hiring a private teacher, or is a parent supposed to do the teaching?

Theres some school in the midwest that copied their format from the most successful education programns around the world. People like move all over the country to get their kid in and like all the kids have tons of ap classes in the beginning of hs and they all seem very motivated. i can't fucking remember any specfics about the name or place of the school

I was fortunate to be given the opportunity to go to one of the best college preparatory schools in the northeast.
