at the private school


Teachers get paid very little to teach. Teachers deal with kids who don’t want to learn. Teachers are paid based off how well they teach the kids who don’t want to learn. Teachers want kids to pass by having learned something but are forced to teach them enough so they pass the tests. Some teachers actually care about the students and how much they want to learn. Teachers deal with rude children and talkers. Teachers don’t get paid enough to deal with some students bullshit. Substitute teachers get paid even less, and are hired based on past performance, regardless of how badly the class behaves.
Students are constantly stressed out. Students deal with huge amounts of homework, on average, 4-5 days a week. Students are trying to complete assignments and study for 6-7 classes a day. Students deal with teachers who don’t care whether they pass the tests, because some teachers get paid well regardless of pass/fail numbers. Students don’t get enough sleep at night. Many students suffer from untreated learning disabilities, like ADHD. Students are expected to know what career field they want to be in for the rest of their lives by 18. Some students are in debt just for wanting to learn.


Public School Aesthetic

-Literally no one knowing the words to the fight song, despite it being played at every game

-That weird cheering thing at assemblies

-That one teacher known to set off the fire alarm/break windows

-Water fountains so gross, no one risks it

-“We’re running today” *everyone groans, except that one kid who cheers. That kid has no friends

-Those morning announcements that no one actually pays attention to


-The music building is always freezing????

-More kids eat out of the vending machines than eat school lunch

-No salt in the cafeteria

-Bucher-paper posters that stay up the entire year because everyone’s too lazy to take them down, we get it, homecoming was 4 months ago, let it go

-Clubs with 2 people in them

-The periods before and after lunch: everyone is eating. Everyone.

-Not seeing certain AP students for weeks in May, when you do, they look dead

-Free periods

-Language teachers are always crazy

-School dances in the gym: no shoes allowed?

-When you walk into your least favorite class someone offers to mercy kill you

-Declining only because you have a test to study for next period

-“Remember that one day we got off because_(insert failing school facility)_?”

-When it first snows everyone rushes to the nearest window for the rest of class
