1/17/19 - Who the Hell Invented School

Posted by linkystudios - January 17th, 2019

This is more of a rant.

To preface, I enjoy school. I've always enjoyed learning. But high school is the most monotonous, unlikeable, INCONCIEVABLY mind-numbing institution to learn and create. I have absolutely NO desire to work and  zero creative energy. Alot of my art gets done on the weekend now because of it. Who the fuck assigns a twelve part packet to students for homework without knowing how to do any of this shit. You rip it off the internet, don't even edit to have even the same page numbers, give little to no time to read or research in class, then chalk the rest of their incomplete work to wasted time. Forced to take things home to work on when that time could be used for a student's relaxation, creative or extracurricular events, feeding mind or body, and for most of the students, WORK. Personally I do near 7 hour shifts on a saturday, starting at 6-7:30, then when I'm out scarmble to use that time for show recordings.

Schools are more concerned about cell phone use and the length of a skirt than actually whether or not their student body is recieving and retaining information. It drowns out creativity in place of information being regurgiated onto a test sheet. 

More art soon. Right now I'm too pissed to concentrate. 

If anyone has these same issues, feel free to discuss with each other or me below.

You hit the nail on the head. What you mentioned “Schools are more worried about cell phone usage and the length of a skirt than whether or not the student body is receiving and retaining information” I laughed because it’s so true. I’m not going to lie and say it gets better in college. It doesn’t. You learn pointless information, retain it for 24 hours, take the test and then you forget it.

I was the kid in high school that took college courses and got straight A’s.I was always told to get good grades so I can go to college so I could get a good job, but what was the point of it all when school didn’t let me find out what I wanted to go into for a career? I wasted my childhood worried about my grades but wasn’t worried about not having a career in mind. It still baffles me how school made me into a robot.

You asked who invented school? Well if you are from the U.S schools were created to teach children to be factory workers during the American industrial revolution. They were meant to train them with repetitive tasks which is why the American school system is so repetitive. It didn’t care about actual education. It was meant to kill your creativity and train you to be factory workers for the rest of your life.

That being said, you must graduate high school to get anywhere now but you don’t need to go to college. You can if you want to be a doctor, a lawyer ect.. but I feel like going to a trade school would be the best option for young adults now. It’s because they actually teach you how to work and find something you’re good at.

Just keep trying and at least get through high school. After that, you can do what you want. You’re not a robot like I was.
