a. Survival of the fittest.
b. Living Hell
Nerd's view: If you are a child, high school is described as heaven by your parents. If you are a parent in the future, you will get to have fun confusing your children with silly terms like "High school is better than Middle school." In reality, high school is middle school plus exams plus more homework (puts away finished math homework, nearly chokes on cafeteria lunch, and begins writing an essay while balancing a schedule of precariously positioned tests and quizzes in her/his head).
Popular Student's View: School is a, like, waste of time. I, like, hate school. Very boring (keeps texting to friend).
Teacher's View (while grading paper): Wrong. I wish there was more time for me to cram information into their heads. I should be paid more for this. Right. Wrong. Right. Should I quit? What should the next test be on? Should I reteach the subject before they fail the SATs? This is the worst coffee ever. Right. Wrong. (writes a lengthy commment then falls asleep, because it is 3 a.m.)
p.s. you have a better chance to pass that math class if you are a nerd and the teacher likes you. Socially, you will die.
p.p.s. You have a better chance to be a part of society if you are popular. You will die in terms of passing that math class, as social life is hard to maintain and takes up every second of your life.
p.p.p.s. You have a better chance to end up hiding under a desk while students hang from the ceiling by #2 pencils and make monkey noises. Or at least in your head. You will die of grading papers and attempting to satisfy your bosses with failed demonstrations of your students' learning powers.
p.p.p.p.s. You cannot escape high school.
