    The public school system is flawed. I just got done with science homeworkasking about what an independant and dependant variable is. Whats wrong with that? I have no idea what those are! Isnt that what school is for? To learn? Now Im going to get a bad grade (grades are all that matter, I've been tought to think that way becuase of school. Now why would anyone cheat?), becuase they didnt teach me how to do something. Its like that with math too. "Here's a paper, fill it out correctly" But I dont know how to do this" "well, you have to magically know how to do it correctly, or you'll get a bad grade, and with a bad grade, you have ultimately failed" "But if you dont teach me anything, how does it effect me positively?" "well, you have to magically know how to do it correctly, or you'll get a bad grade, and with a bad grade, you have ultimately failed"

    I think you need to quit making excuses and do some research or ask for assistance. Spoon fed education is worthless. If you passively wait for answers to be given to you, you will be responsible for you lack of knowledge. A grade is supposed to be directly related to how much effort YOU put forth. Who is going to give you the answers when/if you graduate?

    well dillo, thats kinda rough. although I do see what youre saying, youre saying it in a shitty way IMO.

    The public school system DOES suck ass - period, point blank. Thats just how it is. Thats not only IMO, its just a fact....for more reasons than just I say so. Dont get me started on this, I wont shut up and no one wants to hear it (lol).

    N - Kiddo, if you need homework help, IM me!!!

    would you not agree that the learning experience is ultimately up to the student? Public school systems are not all the same. If you are willing to teach him, he will still have to ask you, which is what I recommended. Complaining about the system is a high price to pay when HE is the one who is going to pay the price.

    Pls understand that my distaste, distrust and dislike of the public school system isnt based upon what he or any other child or adult has to say. My opinion of the public school system is based upon my own experience with it.

    Your response advised him to ask and which is what he did, unless I am just readig this wrong? Im not being a smart ass (not right now anyway-lol), but Im not seeing the problem here.

    I agree that the degree of learning is based upon the student's willingness to learn.....but the level of education is based upon much more than that....again, IMO.

    Now I need coffee. :cof:
    youre talking too loudly (notice the adv/adj difference here-HA!), and might wake me up - stop it. :dance:

    real quick before coffee....

    complaining about the system.....

    ok, point taken. Complaining does diddly shit to fix a flawed system. Something needs to be done. (Gee, THAT statement is applicable EVERYWHERE with any and every thing anymore, no?) :dunno:
