School is an institution that most everyon has, is, or will attend.
Now let me make this as clear as posible:
SCHOOL IS NOT HELL, IT IS NOT A PRISON, IT IS NOT A CONCENTRATION CAMP, AND IT IS NOT WHERE PEOPLE ARE ASSIMILATED!!
School is exactly what you make out of it. If you go around not giving a shit, it will be boring and unpreductive. If you go around with a bad attitude, it will be a place of anger and hate. But, if you go around with a good attitude and accually make an effort, it can be productive and possibly FUN.
So my advice is to not focus on the asshole students, the totalitarian teachers, and the useless busy work. If you get past that you could accually learn something. Trust me, its possible, but its all in how you look at it, and what your attitude is.
I've delt with the persecution, and the bad teachers, and the mounds of homework, but i chose to do extra activites, made friends, and carried a personality that made school fun. School is exactly what you make out of it.
