This might not come as a shock to you but some people are unaware of just how unfair the school system can be to some of the individuals who enter it. Being at school could feel like a meat grinder to some of the students and the reasons for that are various. A thread on Twitter became popular because it discusses that matter exactly and part of the tweets are shared below.
1. The first tweet
This is how it all started and this person decided to show people’s opinions on the matter.
2. The calling
This is something we all know about but we are often not aware of the reasons behind it.
3. The forced action
In order to achieve higher grades, students are often forced to do things they are not okay with.
4. The silence
Students sometimes take time to respond but teachers often think they are just being rude.
5. The seat
Making someone sit still against their will is a huge no-no but it happens in schools.
6. The phones
Breaks and lunchtime are moments that should be private so everyone should be able to use a phone.
7. The class
It seems that teachers love punishing those who do not pay attention in class in this vile way.
8. The names
This is yet another type of punishment that is meant to teach the students a lesson but it doesn’t.
9. The tones
We firmly believe this is a wrong practice because this is a skill almost nobody would use in life.
10. The recess
Some schools use this method and we guess that forcing students to do that is not a good idea.
11. The analysis
Some kids do not have the ability to read between the lines and this is something they need to learn, not know in advance.
12. The terms
Some may disagree here but we are sure that most will agree with this tweet.
13. The walks
This would be a really nice thing to add to a typical school day – students would love to go on a short walk if they need it.
14. The projects
It appears that those who have been part of such group projects would agree that they are not as good of an experience.
15. The gym class
Not all students are equal in terms of their physical preparation and skills so gym class might be too much for some.
16. The marks
It seems that only a few teachers are aware that most students want to avoid this because they feel uncomfortable.
17. The reward
It appears that those who had to miss a day or two for an apparent reason are left behind by this system.
18. The toys
These devices are actually more than just toys – they can easily get the tension off the minds of students.
19. The grading system
Here is yet another perk of the grading system that most students openly dislike, and for a reason.
20. The gum
It seems that there are more than a few restrictions for behavior in class that need to become obsolete.
21. The skills
This is yet another criterion that is probably not the best one to be graded at school, as it is learned over the course of years.
22. The participation
We are sure that most students would agree with this tweet as well because it speaks the truth.
23. The music
Music is always nice to have as an addition to your day but we believe that students should be able to choose it.
24. The other tweet about music
Apart from music as a background, teachers usually forbid students from listening to their tunes while working.
25. The objects
Apart from the fidget spinners, teachers deprive kids of any other device that can be used in a similar fashion.
26. The punishment
There are sometimes measures and precautions teachers take that are just too extreme.
27. The meltdown
Sometimes, children fail to understand that kids are not having a tantrum but a meltdown.
28. The course
Here is one really important thing about the school system that is currently missing.
29. The marks
Handwriting is an expression of one’s personality and it should be respected for what it is.
30. The points
To take off points out of someone’s grade just because the stuttered is a huge no-no.
31. The marks
Now, this is one of the most annoying things of all – it might be handed in late but it might be an A+ material.
32. The PE
Making kids go to PE with no personal regard whatsoever is not right. Some kids are just not fit enough to cover it.
