So I am sitting in glass shop today doing my US history home work that was due the next period. A girl asks if she can see something real quick, and takes the book to look somthing up. She starts thumbing through the book looking for something, goes to the index and looks through there before asking me, "Where are the 10 comandments." At this point I'm thinking to myself, "you mean 10 amendments." I asked her if she that is what she is thinking of, she tells me that she is sure she learned about the 10 comandments that day and not the 10 amendments. I tell her that they are not aloud to teach religion in schools at this point in time and that it would have been the Bill Of Rights she was looking for. She goes on to insist that she was learning about then 10 comandments even after I show her were the Constitution is in the book.
How has our education system in this state goten so bad where a junior in high school does not know what the 10 Fing amendments are, and thinks the bible and constitution are the same thing?

was she hot?

as a graduate of the public school system I can say the whole thing is a joke, what gets taught is for the most part useless, and what you dont know upon graduating could fill a small country. I can honestly see why people with even some Post -secondary education lead more sucessful lives than people who take their grade 12 and say "that was so ****ing pontless im never doing that again"
what I have learned in one year of post secondary will be infinatly more valuable to me than the 12 years of drugery I was put through.

I don't think the school system can be blamed for this though. Growing up in the Bronx, I remember a girl could not point to California on a map of the US. I even remember a CBS show at the same time about California which used the state outline on its logo.

My math classes and language classes are excellent. My history class is a total joke, and its supposed to be AP. My private school education was for the most part about the same, except for history.

Like anything in life, you get out it what you put into it. I strongly believe that you could get a decent education from a public school. Although, I believe that a high school education is not enough to get through life--these days. High school should just be a step towards college...

Well... I am at boarding school, and I can tell you now, in my old school, I wasn't the smartest, but since I have been here, I can tell I have far surpassed the kids I went to school with. It's funny everyone from home makes fun of me. "Oh, you go to boarding school, that sucks!" I will probley do things in my life they will never do. I still get to have fun though, parties on the weekends, riding my bike, meet non-whorish girls, and get a good education. There are sometimes I would rather be home, BUT at least I am doing something with my life, and getting an early start at it.

Why do those kids selling themselves as smarter than the dumbasses come over so stupid in this thread?

Keep up the good work guys.

I don't think it's a matter of 'coming over' as stupid.
