30 Day Blogging Challenge // Day 16. Thoughts On Education


Hmmm an interesting topic.

Education is something that everyone has so i guess everyone would surely have an opinion on it right? 

I absolutely hated school. I'm not going to pretend that they were the best years of my life to keep up appearances, i genuinely fucking hated it. The only good thing about school was my mates, if it wasn't for them i think i would've been a lot less well behaved than what i was. 

I'm all for certain subjects at school such as English and Maths because they are the kind of things that benefit you for life, but who the bloody hell needs science? I haven't used a crocodile clip, needed to name the bones of the body or had any reason to pay attention to a flowers reproductive cycle in all the time it's been since i left that god foresaken place. It was so bloody pointless!

Also, someone tell me why we needed to do P.E?! I HATED IT! We were always made to play hockey when it was either foggy, freezing, raining or a combination of the 3. Yes ok we need exercise but most of us walked or cycled to school, how much bloody exercise did we need! Oh god and as for sports day? I fucking hate competitiveness at school it disgusts me.

Don't get me wrong, education is very important but i think there are massive areas for improvement. The law has changed recently that states that all children must now stay in education until they are 18. I don't know how i feel about this because my daughter is included in that statement. I can't name one person who wasn't happy to see the back of school at 16, i don't think keeping them there until 18 will make them better people or better educated. 

They should drop science as a subject UNLESS the pupil plans to take up a science related career, it's pointless and irrelevant. P.E should also be personal choice.

As for college and university, they're a great idea if you wish to further your education but it shouldn't be frowned upon if you decide to go straight into work, infact i think it should be applauded.
