What actually happens in school right now

  • I'm curious as to what you guys think of this. Last week you could choose the option to stay online or go in person to school. I was expecting to go in and not deal with the online garbage. I'm gonna run through some things that have happened to show how ridiculous this is.

    It's not in person school, it's doing online school in person.

    Being told to cheat on tests by teachers when you ask a question.

    Grades not being put into the grade book but rather left on a Z (0) when tomorrow is UIL eligibility check and it's the third class in a row you’ve talked to your teacher about this.

    First Algebra class math teacher not showing up for 30 minutes until some poor teacher gets shoved to take her place (still hasn’t shown up… but here is her instagram handle that she post every day where I check my grades https://www.instagram.com/carriepresley/ just take a scroll through that to see my challenge if she ever finds mine… (hint hint… tiktok+)

    The Internet is not even working at school. I mean it hasn’t worked for the past week, but all the work I was supposed to do at school becomes homework because of the internet.

    Explaining to a teacher how to turn off editing on a quiz

    Now to be clear I am not here to cause problems for teachers. I understand this stuff is probably a pain for them to deal with too. I also as you could imagine don't mind getting easy 100’s cause a teacher told you to cheat. But this is a giant waste of everyone's time. There are exactly two reasons why I go in 1. Friends 2. Taking German so the people who cheat on German will be screwed, if next year is normal and they don't know how to say hi. Other than that there's no point. I wake up at 5:30 school till 2:30, marching band till 5:30, go eat with the section, spend time with the family, a little time to do what I want to do (reload/dryfire), homework, and sleep. This would be fine but that little 5:30 to 2:30 slot where I train my lunges to breath half the amount of air it wants because of masks and do nothing, is a good time to go shoot… ;)

  • As you know, things are far less than ideal right now. This is inevitably going to lead to teachers and students cutting corners because they are not being monitored as closely as they once were.

    You however should be the exception to the rule. You are obviously self-motivated as your shooting practices and skills have indicated. You can learn ANYTHING you like with a little bit of motivation and self teaching. I am not telling you that so you ignore school because you can always learn it later, but rather to tell you to choose to use this opportunity to excel. You are not limited by what your teachers are teaching so choose to learn more about math than you normally would. Choose to learn more about English, German, science, and any other subject that you desire to know about.

    Successful people in any walk of life are self motivated. So while most teachers and other students are using this as an excuse to be lax in learning, you can use this as an opportunity to excel by choosing to challenge yourself.

  • Home schooling is the answer. It has been, for years... but this past year has made it a necessity.

    Schools are a business. They want compliant little lemmings. Do what they say, don't question, and if you do... you'll be punished. If you are more advanced than others, you'll be made to wait until they catch up. ... all so "teachers" can feel entitlement.

    Were I in your shoes, I'd be working with your parents to initiate home schooling.

    I think I can get you a referral code that may help.

    With that curriculum, and the internet at your fingertips, there is literally nothing you cannot learn. I'm self taught, never went to college, and look at my public education as a total waste of time. I was held back by the lowest common denominator in all of my classes. If left to my own devices, I could have finished high school by age 15 and got on with more advanced things.

    If your parents have any questions about how it all works, or if you'd like to talk about it, just give me a call.
