School is a place where the human spirit is crushed all in the name of education. It also acts as a factory for the next generation of obedient workers so that the Government can steal even more of your money. Once you get into year eleven you start to notice the structure of things. Prefects represent your future bosses, the people who will hold power over you when you enter the work place. They are not there to stop you from doing bad things because they have no actual powers over you. No their purpose is to give you an idea of the future and nothing else.
You don't have to have an actual knowledge of the world to succeed in school, all you need is what the teachers put in front of you. This is all used in order for you to do well in the next round of standardised test bullshit. Why? you ask. The answer is simple good grades lead to you getting jobs of course. School serves to create a load of mindless fork and spoon operators.
To make you think you have a say they set up a Student Council. You vote who you want in and hope they will help you in some way. I once asked a teacher what they acheived and she said " Oh they've done a lot. They got mirrors put in the toilets and made some lovely flower hanging baskets for the school". Now in what way is that beneficial to my education or the improvement of my school life? The answer is it wasn't. The Student Council is there to make you think you have a say. The truth is kids you fucking don't, never have and never will get used to it because it is the same with the Government. This is again the School giving you an idea of the future.
Critical thinking will never be taught or allowed in School because if it was the whole structure would be in danger. The media helps to dumb kids down so instead of asking questions they watch Big Brother and any other shit that happens to be on. The kids are getting dumber and I blame a large amount of this on School. Insead of producing intelligent well rounded people they produce unquestioning fuckwits. What can be done about this? The answer is nothing unless people start to develop the power of critical thought. Will that happen? Not a fucking chance the damage has been done.
Me: Why don't you teach us something useful for a change?
Teacher: Get out of my Classroom!
Student: School is a place for brainwashing
Teacher: Oh don't listen to him listen to us!
