Comment on My Unschooling/Anti-School Testimony by Idiot Child
Hey there! Sorry for the late response, and I don't expect anyone to answer, but I believe I'm having similar issues. I've been bullied fairly badly about being top of the class, and all my teachers have high expectations. Could someone please explain to me what unschooling is, and how well it works for people? Also, can you still get into college if you unschool?

Comment on What to do if school makes you depressed and/or suicidal by Oof
I hate this. I can't get out of here and i just feel like there's nowhere else to go or nothing to live for. I want to do art that's the only thing that matters to me is my stories and creativity. But no one cares or gives a shit. We really don't have any freedon here and it's sad.

Comment on Why do I hate school? by Glugglug68
After elementary school, you learn almost nothing that will prepare you for the outside world! It wasn’t until I left school that I started to learn all the things that school should’ve been teaching to being with! Second of all, kids and adolescents need sleep and have a very specific brain clock. Teenagers brains are designed to fall asleep around 12-1am, and wake up around 9-10am. School completely disrupts this sleep cycle and creates chemical imbalances in the brain and development issues. Kids crave freedom like all adults. When an adult is forced to do something they never had a choice in doing, they are either gonna rebel against it or do a poor job of it. Why is it somehow okay to force a child into a prison like environment, restrict all their freedom and creativity, and punish them if they don’t comply with something they never wanted to do in the first place? Family arguments over kids refusing to do homework or getting bad grades, is a cause of depression, unemployment, suicidal tendencies, the list goes on. Telling kids they aren’t going to succeed unless they endure 12 years of hell, learning crap they are never going to use, how is that exactly preparing them for life? Why we have ignorant idiots who support white supremacy, racism, homophobia and sexism? Because we don’t educate our children properly and they learn these idiotic beliefs and prejudices from their ignorant parents or our pathetic politicians. Why not teach children how to be respectful, how to be accepting of LGBTQ and religious people, how to run a business, how to write a cheque, the value of money, how to budget, how to pay bills, how to be a good citizen, global warming research on how to fix our dying planet? Instead you’d rather teach them algebra, linear functions, calculus and trigonometry, even though it’s virtually pointless unless that kid wants to become a math teacher. Kids need to be educated, but educated about things they are going to use in life. Especially encouraging them to care about the environment so that we can lean up the mess that the teacher’s generation made of the earth we now have to live in! School is prison and it’s killing our world!

Comment on De-gaying Camps by Ivy
Being homosexual is not a choice. I'm a asexual bi romantic. I have never been sexual abused or anything remotely similar. My current crush is a girl. You don't "choose" to be gay. It just happenes. Do you consider stuff when you fall in love? And you can be both "straight" and "gay". News flash! It's called being bisexual. But that doesn't mean everyone to like both genders. Some are simply gay! Well let's be more objective and take a more relatable example. Is there anything you like to eat? Is there anything you hate to eat? But sometimes even when you hate it other people love it? Is it your choice to hate the thing? When you can't even choose what you love to eat how dare you ask anyone to chose their sexual orientation? It's not a choice. It simply is.

Comment on My Unschooling/Anti-School Testimony by Rav
I rarely hear from people that have a similar experience with school, and it always gives me a bittersweet feeling knowing I'm not the only one having a hard time. Thanks for sharing, even if I'll never meet you, I'm glad that have that freedom now :)

Comment on What to do if school makes you depressed and/or suicidal by Blue_Spirit
So about 5 years ago I moved from the US to Mexico. 4 or 3 years have been rough. I remember arriving the first year and actually being eager to go to school, but overtime that eagerness decayed. It also affected my brother, but I think if affected me the most. Anyways, I'm in my first year of high school and I really think I might be at my lowest point. It feels like if I go any lower I might break. I'm surrounded by idiots at school, no one here speaks english and no one cares. Also on the topic of student being abused or disrespected, there's this girl in my class who constantly gets made fun of and has gotten yelled at by teachers a couple times now, I remember back in october or november she actually ran out crying, but that might have something to do with her family. Sorry this post was kinda long. I just needed to let this out of my system.
