i'm in 6th grade. before this school year,i thought this would be the best one ever.
i mean, c'mon! it's our last year of elementary school before we go to middle school.
instead right when i walked in the classrrom, quess what we have a project that lasts
the entire semester! during the 1st and 2nd semesters of school i was all about
getting good grades and trying my hardest. then in the begginning of the 3rd
semester, i found out the teachers have doubled our work. plus i get extra becuz I'm
a gifted student. it wasn't fair and it's still not!!!!! So I just gave up! I'm
failing school when i use to be an honor student! my grandma thinks it's band that's
making me fail. Whatever! band is the only thing i enjoy going to school for! if they
took me out, that would be horrible.
so all i have to say is.......
school puts too much pressure on the smarted students.
in fact, they put too much on all of the students.
teachers never give you a break from projects. it's like a never ending chain of
they expect you to be talking and having fun with your friends, yet you have only
have limited time to talk.
they expect 11 and 12 year olds to be better than the younger kids.
the only reason they ususally aren't better is becuz younger children try harder to
not mess up and be good
i mean, they expect these pre-teens to act like their little 6 year old kids who do
what their told!
C'mon! We're 11! and 12! we act like that. kids will be kids as the adults say.
so, that's all i wanted to say. it's just a way to let my feeling go. don't send
nasty comment saying how I'm horrible for failing and hating school. thanks for
reading this anyway
