Literally the equivalence of hell on Earth, unless your parents are rich and they sent you to a private school, though I'm not saying it's any better, I mean it kinda is, but shit happens there too. With all the homework stacks assigned each day and with social anxiety mixed, it's absolute madness, also pour in some bullying and occasional violence and there you go, you have a public/private school (Note: Private schools aren't usually like this, but some of them are). Subtract practically everything and you have a home school.
As a former student of a public school, I can say straight-forwardly that those 7 years were literal hell. Not just to me, but many others too and here is why:
⦁ Bullying (but not like calling someone an idiot or some softcore shit like that, it would go from that to actually making fake social network profiles of that person and ruining them by adding everyone and then sending them f'ed up messages and pictures)
⦁ Violence (Again, no softcore like a push or something like that, many students would go trough physical violence such as: beatings, pulling of hair, kicks into the stomach/head region.)
⦁ People were afraid of being themselves, because if you're different, you'll get bullied so badly that you'll simply have no choice but to either never attend School, changing school and rarely commiting suicide. (The suicide one is the rarest out of all the 3, but it happened at least 3 times each year)
⦁ The teachers. No, I'm not gonna bab about how much homework they assigned as it's the reason why they were so terrible, because that's not the reason they are on this list. The reason is the pure disrepect that they would show to their students. From calling them out/putting them in an awkward position in front of the entire class to straight-forward bullying (Occasional smacks on the head, making fun of the student in front of everybody) Also, if they have a bad day, they lay it all on the students.
⦁ The ''no-sleep'' schedule. This was one of the worst parts, due to the massive shitloads of homework each day. Students don't get enough sleep, they are forced to come to school early in the morning (7AM-9AM) and they expect us to perform in our best, getting good grades and not falling asleep in class. (Of course, this never happened to me as I deal with stress well and can go without sleep for long periods of time, but this post isn't really about me, it's about the majority of schools) This ''schedule'' is even worse if the student is going trough bullying, so then he has to worry about the homework, his performance and the bullies, and that's a lot for a growing organism in it's most vulnerable state - puberty.
NOTE: This doesn't happen in all schools, I'm talking using statistics and personal experience
Now that I covered up public schools, I can continue to the private schools. To start off, I don't even know what kind of school I go to, it's not really private nor is it public, you need to pass an exam before attending it so I don't really know, but it's probably a private school. The situation is much better, the teachers are much better, there's no disrespect nor bullying between the students and the teachers. There's still the ''no sleep'' schedule, but I guess it applies to all schools, private or public. Of course, some people are still kind of scared to be themselves, but those who are being themselves, they don't get bullied. The school I attend is artistic so everyone has a unique style and from what I've seen troughout this year, (my first year) everyone seems to respect eachother. The bullying is rare and it's usually between troubled kids, but I guess it wouldn't be a school without at least one of those. Violence is very rare, some fights break out between a few students but they usually solve it without losing an eye or breaking a bone. So:⦁ Bullying is rare, but if it does happen it's some softcore shiz
⦁ Violence is very rare but happens at some points, same as the bullying, it's usually not too bad
⦁ (In most) People feel free and are respected when being themselves
⦁ Teachers are better, much better, they treat the students with respect (95% of the time)
⦁ The ''no sleep" schedule still exists, but it does everywhere, actually
NOTE: This is all from my experience, it might be different in other schools
I can't really talk about homeschools since I don't know anything about them nor did I have a personal experience, but I believe they're the safest but probably are not the most rewarding in the future from what i heard, though it probably depends on the person that is being tutored.
In conclusion, I believe that all schools have their ups and downs and it usually depends on the students and teachers. From the looks of it, private schools have a better history than public schools, but that doesn't mean it can be the other way around, there have been many reports on private schools. Shit happens everywhere, the type of the school doesn't determine the situation in it.
That's basically all I can say about schools from 8 years of being a student. I know it's not much, but it pretty much sums up my thoughts on it for now.
Also, in my last post, I added a few YouTube comments as examples, they were all from another blog called Stupid Youtube Comments, you can view it here. It's a pretty rad blog, I recommend checking it out.
