  1. How grades are so emphasized in order for a student to pass instead of if they actually understand or not. Most students only do what they have to to pass not to learn and actually understand what they’re being taught

  2. It’s created around funding. Therefore, the education is mostly useless IRL. Better grades and test scores means more funding for the district to finance projects like heated walkways and a newer football field. Meanwhile, the schools co tinge to promote a system designed not for students to be successful in life—but instead for students who can pull in good grades.

  3. The teachers have stopped caring about actually teaching. These days, they tend to tell the students to look online for help instead of them helping the students themselves.

  4. Teacher unions prevent a lot of bad teachers from being fired. Students and parents alike treat all teachers like garbage. A lot of students are not taught the value of learning and are programmed to become so obsessive over marks and grades that they base their entire self worth on a number.

  5. Its complexity. By the 10th grade, the education system should prepare you for the life you see going forward to, regardless the subject. They instead stuff you with subjects that doesn’t give anything valuable to your life as an adult. School should’ve been a place where I would grow and trace a path to my adult life, instead it gave me a sad life where I don’t know what I want to do, as an adult – just because its complexity and lack of guiding a student.

  6. It’s designed in a way that makes you memorize things for just as long as it takes to pass a test then promptly forget the info as you focus on the next unrelated info to memorize.

  7. Current systems do not teach actual transferable life skills early enough. Emotional intelligence and individual pathways need to start earlier than University. There are only a few programs that integrate at high school that provide real job/work training and a diploma. No one learns how to fill out paperwork or taxes, actual financial independence, or real life skills like fixing clogged toilets.
