An idea that hasn't evolved since the industrial revolution. A brainwashing factory dedicated to implanting patriotism and loyalty to your country. Focused heavily on math and science so America can beat the Soviet Union... Oh wait, exactly.
Outdated system that once brainwashed your parents causing them to rethink their lives around 40; See midlife crisis
. Destroys any imagination or creativity the student has before entering. The teachers want you to think if you fail here you're a failure of a human being and will never amount to anything. Often separated into gifted or honors classes and normal classes further enforcing isolation and feelings of insignificance. Where Pink Floyd's The Wall
came from. Even the teachers aren't satisfied.
Training grounds for a meaningless life getting up, going to work, coming home and watching TV. Makes you believe that killing is right if it stops death in your country; See War
. Makes you terrified of failing, which is awful because that destroys originality when no one has the courage to step outside the box.
Schools often hate art and music and put them secondary to Math and Science because spiritual satisfaction doesn't include money for the higher ups.
Someone needs to change it soon or we will never move forward as a people by embracing only the things that worked in the past.
Just an Epic Fail
Parents: Oh yeah everyone has to do it it's too bad you don't like it. Tough
Kids: Don't you think there's something wrong with High School if everyone hates it?
Parents: *Bullshit Lecture*
