As I stated in my post earlier this month, Americans often take advantage of having an education since it’s always been there, no one has ever prevented them from dong it. Now, I wanted to take a moment to talk about why so many students dread school and the education system in general.
There’s a lot of reasons why so many students all around America despise education. Partly because students feel as if teachers just don’t care about their education, they just want to get paid. I think this certainly isn’t true about every teacher. Some teachers deeply care for their students and want them to continue receiving a quality education. Sometimes, it just happens to be that the student believes the lie that school doesn’t matter. Being a well-educated person is extremely important and will allow much more job opportunities as well as other advantages.
Many students do care about receiving an education, it’s the school system that bothers them. This then causes students to just shut down and believe that what they learn isn’t all that important. This isn’t true, as I already talked about, kids in other parts of the world risk their life just to go to school everyday. While the American school system has it’s obvious flaws, at least we have schools that we can safely attend.
It’s a big deal to appreciate the school system that we have. I think that just because you have bad experiences with the school you attend, doesn’t mean you should care less about learning. If anything, you should care more about diving deeper and discovering things that you don’t know due to whatever reason it may be. I’m not sure if schools will ever fix the problem of having some teachers that could care less about anything other than a paycheck. Unfortunately, it’s just something that students have to learn to adjust to. There’s a lot of learning left to do and we shouldn’t forget that.
