Comment on School makes me feel depressed, I don't want to go back by CynicalGuy42
Smart kids (at least in the academic sense) don't necessarily have a wonderful school experience. Granted, the academic part of school (which is admittedly sold to parents as a purpose of school) might be a bit easier for them. But they might have difficulty with the social aspects of school.

Comment on 4 ways school traumatized me, and how I'm recovering by She
Really, it's good that someone acknowledges the negative effects that school can cause. And I am aware how hard it can be to speak up of traumatizing events or the constant denial, that those events are important. But I must say, though I generally can grasp your feelings, the education system is not the worst. I know a lot of people, who did totally enjoy their time in class. And you know what, I am absolutely and genuinely happy they could. No one experienced those 12 years the same. The "authorities" seem not to care enough to finally individualize school for the pupils and not the other way around. To my time I suffered from severe anxiety, so that I used to lock myself into the toilet, while class and hide from the others. I got bullied, I got harmed and the worst of all, at some point, I cared about nothing, despite school anymore. I just learned and learned, to realize in the end I fogot everything, eventually. So as I graduated, I suffered from severe depressions and regular panic attacks. Everytime I couldn't spend my time learning literally anything, was a minute not worthy of life. I kept this struggle up, always gathering more and more knowledge, because that's what I was taught to do. Till at some point I attempted suicide. Luckily I failed, but I was really close to death. For me, school did more harm, than good too. After some years of eventual recovery, I wasn't able to learn anymore, not in a productive way, so I took some time off to heal. If school would have been more individualized and my country would legally allow homeschooling for example, it had safed me a lot more years of madness, worthlessness and deep pain. To say we need to "improve" school (as was said a million times at this point) is, sorry, plain bullshit. We can't adjust school to everyone's feelings, we should rethink wh learning actually means and what we are being taught. Not to mention the way which is for kids more engaging to learn. Building everything up on "rewards" as in grades is a damaging way of even grasping how real life is supposed to works.
