Question: Why does school suck so much!?
Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
The reason why school "sucks" might have a little bit to do with the effort you're putting into it!. I'm a public school teacher (who has also taught college composition for ten years), and when I ask students why they don't try any harder, they usually explain that they're not paying for it!.

Of course, school (as well as life itself) sometimes includes monotonous, boring activities, but it also lays the groundwork for
---employment, so treat school like a job
---higher education, so don't forget that good grades often equal scholarships
---interpersonal relationships, so remember that getting along with all kinds of people is a good preparation for adult life!.

Finally, school is isn't all there is, and if as an adult you count as your best days your school years, something is really wrong!. No one past high school will care if you were part of the "in" crowd, a jock, or a nerd, although upon attending my 30th high school reunion I was secretly thrilled that the homecoming queen/head cheerleader and the football captain/quarter back from my senior year in high school had just gotten a divorce!. There is--trust me--life after your teen age years!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

It is a vicious cycle; you don't like it, your teachers pick up your attitude, they don't like it, you pick up theirs, you don't like it !. !. !.Www@QuestionHome@Com

because they don't have sensible students there and they are willing to make you miserable!. University is better because there are adults!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Because it's boring and dull to just sit there mindlessly soaking up information!.
If they made it a tad more interactive and into a game, then maybe we'd all enjoy it!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
