Today I truly realized one of the biggest blunders in society. How can 1 teacher control 30 students? Of course there are going to be complications. But this can all be directed to the start, who's idea was it for 1 adult to control 30 sugar high kids?
Actually Trying To Learn
I felt pretty tired late into the day so I wanted to digest some facts into my brain. However the other 10 people though differently. They went on and on and just could not contain themselves for even a minute. I probably act like this a lot and if I was another student I would probably find myself annoying. Just why are the number so imbalanced? Maybe if teaching offered more money or rights then we would not have classes that exceed 25 students.
If there are 29 bafoons in the class, then it is really hard for you not to become one. Eventually the teachers become irrelevant and students develop this energy and it goes crazy. Especially if they are teaching something that does not flavor with the students. They will go bezerk and teachers might as well say goodbye to any learning if they do not plan anything that stimulates students minds.
Teachers Scared Of The Critique The Students?
I do not know how many times this has happened. When the students become the teachers it always cracks me up. When the students "forcefully direct" the teacher to do what they want to do. This is how true teachers are determined and the weak ones will do whatever his/her children say. However if the teacher do not follow through then in lessons she should expect to cop a lot of "why do we do this miss? And the "I don't cares".
It All Adds Ups
In the end it all adds up. Students who receive and actually have a good mentality and attitude at home should succeed. Because what are they doing at school, slacking off. Teachers have lost that strong DNA in them and now students control the classroom. Lets put it this way, if the teacher got through the daily work and has time to set out homework yes HOMEWORK then the lesson was a success.
Alright that's the article. Been a bit tired lately so sorry for not posting for I think the last 4 days. I will probably try and give more of my opinions on schools so if anyone from the education departments wants to listen to more of my opinion as a student feel free to send me a Gmail. Thanks and see you guys next time.
High School And The Flaws In It
If you ever went to high school or are currently in one this article is for you. I share my opinions as an Australian high school student and what I believe to be the flaws and mistakes that I experienced so far in my schooling life. I may be wrong but here it goes.
In most schools it's Maths and English that dominate studies and rightly so. These subjects are needed in everyday life however it's what follows that causes the problem. In the first two years of Australian high school, students are unable to control what they want to learn and thus this makes me very angry. At least 40 minutes a day i'm wasting my time in a study that simply 'I do not care about'. And then whenever you try an give "constructive criticism" to a "co-curricular teacher", straight away us students get brushed away. Yes I know the teachers went to University and we didn't but whenever a student knows their right it's like a pocket rocket, they shoot up and then go down because of the teachers incompetence.
It's such a shame isn't it. There are barely any teachers now that can really connect too you emotionally. As a student I want a teacher that I can look up too, a teacher that I would share a few secrets with and a teacher than I can have a have a bit of a joke with. However also a teacher that will push us and give us good reasons for it and will put in effort for his/her children. How can I be motivated to work if my teacher just sits there and makes us copy off the board and hands out worksheets like their food samples.
Which Way Of Learning Is Better
Brute force like copying off the whiteboard or carefully planned lessons that gives us variety. Out of all my music lessons I only remember one clearly. Every lesson my music teacher would just spit out facts and names of instruments I never thought existed and it never sunk in. However there was this one really good lesson where she put her own time into making a great crossword and for the first time it looked like she actually cared and because she had invested her time into us kids, the class were well-behaved for the whole lesson. Now I'm not saying that teachers should always give us crosswords and free time however all I want is proof from the teachers that she/he actually cares about us and would spend her time to enrich our learning.
I'm sure its not very pleasing too be told that you're inferior to the top class. And I know last year I was at near rock bottom of the class placings and multiple times when my class wasn't on their best behavior straight away the teacher would be like "Why can't you be like the top class"?. And every time there was actually a good lesson the feel good vibe is wrecked when the teacher slips in that sneaky comment like "Today on your behavior I thought you guys were the top class".
Eventually I did work hard enough to get to the top class, and what a mistake that was! The difference was amazing compared to rock bottom all the way to the top of the food chain. Whenever I did a test fail or pass the teacher would always cheer me up. 80% very good job 55% not the best job but at least you passed :) 45% don't worry you got it next time. Then when you get to the top your always expected to be good at every subject and whenever you got your test results it was always the worst. Failed: No comment for the whole lesson the teacher would stay away from you. Around 50-75%: I was hoping you would get a bit higher. At the top: Just a quick mention then straight away the teacher starts reviewing the test.
Part 2 will be coming out later in the week. I go back to school this week :L. Hope this article gave you a good insight into my high school life and please share yours in the comment section down below. If you liked it please follow me or you can add me to your circle.

Bye Bye Freedom
For many kids the last day of holiday is the worst. The silence and the trauma (over exaggerated) you feel when you wake up in the morning is incredible. Everything you do is dimmed down to pain as in the back of your mind it's the inevitable. Schools Back -.-
For many parents, this is the time that they can sit back and relax. Their 2 weeks of suffering is gone and now us kids have to suffer for the next 3 months.
And then I wonder? what could I have done these holidays to make it better. I'm just speechless because in the next 36 hours i'm back to school. It feels as if it was yesterday when It was my last day of school and now I'm back already,.
But How Come I Don't Wanna Go Back To School?
Firstly the fact that I have to wake up at 7 in the morning is not very ideal. Secondly I feel as if since I'm spending my time at school, my time is limited to do the things that I wanna do. What would you rather do? Writing notes about how to describe adjectives in Japanese Or Blog with your fellow bloggers. And I feel as if im on a treadmill. I'm walking and walking but getting no where :(. Plus if I dont make it too University then these last 14 years of my life (+preschool kindergarten) have been a bit of a waste.
My holidays was a good ride while it lasted. Waking up at 9 everyday to relax and just regather myself, I just wish that it would last a little bit longer maybe an extra week or 2. But know all I can do is develop the right attitude to get through my last term.
So Much Success Around The World
It's a bit hard to learn when you know that people who have dropped out of school have gone on to achieve such great things. Take Sir Richard Branson for example, He left school and look at him now. CEO of Virgin (the company that provides airways, phone billing and even space travel). Then we have Bill Gates the list just goes on and on it just boggles your imagination. Now I definitely do not want to drop out but it's just amazing as the saying goes "If you chase your dreams, You can get anywhere".
Alright thats the article. We went a little off track though but thanks for reading this rant about school. Regarding going back to school I will only be able to post 1 article a day once I get back so i'm really sorry about that but hey at least I get to blog once I come home. If you liked it you can add me to circles and thanks for reading, have a good day :).
The Struggles In Life
I'm still in school but over these last few years I've experienced a lot. It seems as if every time my life was looking up something would just hit me and I would come crashing down. I remember all those times I couldn't sleep because some burden was coming over me and every time and I mean every time there was a lot of pressure on me I crippled, crumbled and fell flat on my face. The last few years of my life have definitely been the roughest.
1 thing I hate about life, it's that the negatives always outweigh the positives. It's like whenever I achieve something great it only lasts about a day however when I do something really bad it sticks with me forever. There's so much pressure on you and I to always give 100% but no one is perfect and there are always those moments that you play in your head over and over again.
The Dream As A Kid
I pondered day and night figuring out the answer to true success. Like almost every kid all I wanted in life was money and fame. However with all the problems in my life I knew that I would be the last person to achieve glory.
The Shape I'm In Now
Right now I'm just sitting at home recovering from a fractured foot. This will most likely rule me out for a couple of weeks of basketball even though I've recovered from a fractured wrist :(.
Alright that's it for the day. Thank you everyone for reading and I hope you enjoyed. Please comment in the section below any mistakes I may have made or any of your own personal experiences :).
