My belief on education

Sherrie talks about how her happiness and discovery has blossomed during online school, and why she doesn't particularly like in-person school.


School is almost like a zoo; it can be beneficial and enjoying, but on the other hand, it can be crazy.


Reading, writing, and math are the most important because they are things you need for life. First off, knowing how to read is always a plus so you know what you're looking at. Writing is important because you need to know how to send a letter or write essays. Mathematics, of course, is important for financing.


I get very frustrated with school, at least in the area I live in, because my school does not have good classes for learning life lessons. In my opinion, among any subject we study, learning life lessons is the most important and worthwhile thing a student can do. Also, my school says and praises the fact that they have healthy, good food. This is wrong. Their food is undercooked or burnt on some days and they offer free lunch but not for everyone. Their lunch trays are not properly cleaned, and usually the milk is kept too warm in the coolers.


Luckily, I've found that the schooling experience is alright when I do it at home. It bothers me that regular school (in-person) takes all of my time. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, I was going to school eight hours a day, for five days a week, so most of my time every year is spent at school.


Now, doing school remotely, I finish my work in approximately two hours, and I have more time to discover me and learn important real-world lessons.


Out in the real world, do you think someone would care if you studied in science class and understand biology enough to get an A letter grade in class? I've never met an employer like that before. Usually, employers just want someone that can do the work and get it done correctly and quickly.


Obviously, there's other academic goals people want to achieve. For example, if you want to get a degree for a dream career, that is a very worthwhile way to spend your time. There's nothing wrong with pursuing your happiness. Personally, my happiness is starting to blossom from online school and I'm glad I have an opportunity to discover who I am.
