The following diary entry may turn out to be unnecessarily rude to random groups
of students in high school, including special needs kids, French Immersion kids and
kids taking hospitality class.  I mean no offense to them; just to the God damn
administration who freaking ADORES them way too much.  However, if you are easily
offended, don't read on.

So, these are my conclusions on the school system.

-Fundraising for music therapy programs for special needs children is good (I
actually do support this, but I think it's the ONLY ONE on this list).
-Funraising for sports is good.
-Fundraising for better art supplies is good.
-Fundraising for My Parents Are Jesus Freaks Anonymous (aka Peer Ministry) is good.
-Fundraising for better resources for enriched students, especially in elementary
schools, is bad, because it sends the message that certain students are better
than others.

-Special needs kids are allowed to take the attendance down, collect recycling bins
and do environmental clean-up.
-Peer ministry can miss as much class as they want, because anytime is Jesus time.
-It is totally okay to have an entire school built around kids who think they're
going to be Hollywood actors but have a 96% chance of ending up working some crappy
desk job, and to allow said kids to miss a crap load of school to travel around doing
plays.
-Jocks can skip school whenever they want.  They're jocks, duh.
-All extracurricular assignments/learning opportunities that have to do with the
enriched program must take place during class time, because it is not fair to allow
enriched students to miss learning when other kids have to be in class.

-It is okay to have field trips for academic streamed students only (aka decidedly
average students).
-Special needs kids can have whatever the fuck heck they want, okay?  Get it
through your head.  They want to go to Timbuktoo, they get to go to Timbuktoo!
-Band trip is cool.
-French Immersion trip is cool.
-Peer Ministry retreat is cool, because anytime is Jesus time.
-Friggin hospitality trip to friggin Niagara Falls (which has nothing to do with the
God damn waste of a class that hospitality is, by the way) is cool.
-A grade nine and ten enriched trip to Toronto, for only two nights, with minimal
fundraising allowed, which two young teachers have put a month and a half into
planning because they care about their students and want to offer them the unique
experience that they deserve for working so hard to reach their goals?  ABSOLUTELY
NOT.  It's not fair to discriminate like that.

I AM SO PISSED RIGHT NOW LIKE YOU LITERALLY HAVE NO IDEA.  LIKE I WANNA KILL
SOMEBODY.  I WANTED TO GO SEE WICKED; I WANTED TO SEE LEONARDO DICAPRIO'S IMAX MOVIE;
I WANTED TO HANG OUT WITH MY BEST FRIENDS IN CANADA'S BIGGEST AND GREATEST CITY; I
WANTED TO SHOP AT THE EATON CENTER; I WANTED TO GO THE SCIENCE CENTRE AND THE
MUSEUMS, BUT I CAN'T BECAUSE I'M ACTUALLY FUCKING SMART AND AM ACTUALLY GOING TO
CONTRIBUTE TO THE FUCKING SOCIETY THAT IS TAKING AWAY EVERYTHING THAT I HAVE WORKED
SO HARD FOR AND RIGHTFULLY DESERVE!!!!! I SUPPOSE THEY'LL USE THE MONEY FOR ANOTHER
FUCKING PERK FOR SPECIAL NEEDS KIDS, OR MAYBE COOKING CLASS.

My current Facebook status:
...wants to know why it is okay to single out groups of students for speaking
French, having special needs, being in band, actually taking a class in school to
learn how to make food, or just generally being average, but it is not okay to reward
kids for being smart? *Hates 'political correctness' and everything that it stands
for, and is in a bad mood right now.*

The only way for spanish, french, or german class students to go on
trips is to join clubs in my school. :/ Weird.
And Marching band is the only band to go anywhere, and that's for
competitions that they practice for all the freaking time.
You school is very unfair.

@animeaquamarinemermaid 
I agree!
Well, we only have one type of band, LMAO.  My school is a fail in
general- not just unfair.  xD

@tiggerlemon101 
Our marching band kicks ass, but that's because theyre always
practicing. ALWAYS.
My friend is only on the bus once a week. The rest of the time, she
stays after school for practice.
They take it very seriously. People have fainted out there.

@animeaquamarinemermaid 
Nobody at my school takes anything that seriously.
Well, we students actually take our enriched program quite seriously,
because it's supposed to be helping us achieve our lofty ambitions. 
Too bad nobody else does.

@tiggerlemon101 
My school is lazy and competitive at the same time. Our football team
sucks, but our soccer team is undefeated, so it makes up for the
former's suckishness.

Enriched classes? Like advanced classes? 
 
tiggerlemon101 says:   9 October 2010   795798  
@animeaquamarinemermaid 
Yeah, pretty much.  The province forces us to learn the same
curriculum as the academic stream (which is peopel who acheive like
65-85%), but a much faster pace and with more experiments and such. 
 
‹SqueeneyTodd› says:   9 October 2010   288574  
@tiggerlemon101 
Ah, same here, but for some reason my English class is going in a
different order for the curriculum except vocab.

@animeaquamarinemermaid 
Unfortunately so far we only have it for math and science, but they're
looking at going across the board next year.  We are, however, the
only school in our board that has it, so I guess it's better than
nothing. 
 
‹SqueeneyTodd› says:   9 October 2010   284688  
@tiggerlemon101 
Really? Can't you go into a class with upperclassmen or something?
I mean, half of my World History class is full of freshman like me,
but still! For us this counts as advanced Social Studies. Then English
and Reading has advance and merit, but I don't think they share with
upperclassmen (at least, Merit doesn't).

@animeaquamarinemermaid 
We can, but not in ninth grade, which means not until second semester
of tenth grade, since you have to take the tenth grade stuff in first
semester.
It's called fastracking, and I'm taking grade eleven physics next
year.  You can only fastrack on subject a year, but next year I can
take grade twelve physics and something else, because that will be the
level I'm at in physics and it wont be considered fastracking.
Weird, I know. 
 
‹SqueeneyTodd› says:   9 October 2010   346462  
@tiggerlemon101 
Weird and confusing, but whatever.
I'm in integrated chem./physics honors. It's like physics, but it's
not.
I can't remember, are you in 9th or 10th grade? I always get this kind
of thing mixed up with my kupi friends. D: 
 
tiggerlemon101 says:   9 October 2010   990760  
@animeaquamarinemermaid 
I'm in tenth.
Don't worry, I do that too, except I tend to mix up which country
people are from.  xD 
 
‹SqueeneyTodd› says:   9 October 2010   757764  
@tiggerlemon101 
Ah, okay. I had a feeling you were.
XD I have no problem with that. Though it's probably because all my
friends are either from the US or Canada. And I know my Canadian
friends.

It's scary how much of this also applies to my school district, which
is notably in a completly different country. Are all schools partial
to these skeevey budget choices? 

One of these days you'll get a liscense and anyone who wants to stop
you from going to the city then can screw themselves quietly in a
corner with a modified nail gun. Just remember that. Be it good or
ill, youth doesn't last forever.

@Kirti 
I think society in general must hate those who are actually going to
contribute to it one day... which makes no sense at all, but
whatever.

Ontario wants to change the driving age to nineteen.  My civics
teacher suggested a rebellion... okay, maybe just a petition.  But
whatever must be done, we're planning on doing it.   
 
‹SqueeneyTodd› says:   10 October 2010   955713  
@tiggerlemon101 
Nineteen?
Holy bejeebus. 
 
tiggerlemon101 says:   10 October 2010   751710  
@animeaquamarinemermaid 
I know... hello, how are people supposed to get around when they're in
school/working?
The Premier is a dick.  Good thing someone else is getting elected
next year. 
 
‹SqueeneyTodd› says:   10 October 2010   239917  
@tiggerlemon101 
Are you in a town where you can walk to places? I'm not, so I would
need to drive. 
 
‹INSURGENCY› says:   10 October 2010   897988  
This.
Is.
Exactly.
How.
I.
Feel.
That's why I said fuck society and started online school 
 
tiggerlemon101 says :   10 October 2010   504914  
@animeaquamarinemermaid 
Yes, but this town has no universities or colleges, or many places
that are really desirable to work at.  One dentist office, one
optomatrist office, one law firm, etc.
Otherwise, if you work here you're like a cashier or something.

@Chimera233 
Glad to know I'm not the only one.  
I kind of like being in regular school, though, for the experience. 
It'll probably make post-secondary easier.
