"i love learning, but i hate school,” she says.
“i’m still grateful that i have an opportunity to get an education, but our school system is so fucked up. most students don’t even learn anything, they just memorize facts and forget them after taking a test.”
“tests are the main problem. we rely on study guides to figure out what’s on the test. we’re so worried about failing, some of us turn to cheating. we aren’t being taught to think for ourselves.”
she shakes her head.
“and most of the stuff we’re taught isn’t even going to help us when we finish college. why not learn how to pay taxes or something useful, instead of memorizing the density of gold? and not learn about things that are going to impact us in the future, instead of memorizing which king ruled which country in 1654?”
“students are just so stressed out nowadays because of something that’s supposed to help them learn, and they’re not even learning.”
