U.S. public schools are shitty prisons where kids learn to hate math, english, history, science, and physical ed. that's why we have a problem with having too many uneducated, illiterate, and obese people in america. everyone who doesn't have an extra $30,000 to spend sending their kids to private schools are forced to make them go to public school. teachers can't be fired after working at the school for 2 years, so you get lots of shitty old teachers that don't care about their students because they know they can't lose their job. the school's main focus is preparing students for the standardized tests, which have such low expectations it's unbelievable.
public school kid: fuck i hate school! when the fuck am i going to use this shit?
private school kid: i don't give a shit about school but it doesn't matter because i'll get into harvard anyway.
