Teachers.

What is their job exactly?

To teach, right? Well then, why aren't they teaching? We have teachers who are 'teaching' subjects they're not even certified in! I had a computer teacher once who knew nothing about computer! This woman was a Japanese teacher. What was she doing teaching something she barely knew anything about? Isn't it the school's job to give us a full education?  Why are they hiring people to teach biology for a ninth grade class when the 'teacher' doesn't know a thing about Biology and reminds his students every day that he doesn't know what he's doing?

And for the teachers who actually know what they're teaching and studied it, why can't you challenge your students more? The schools say that they're raising the standards when they're in fact lowering the standards! Teachers give their students a minimal amount of work to do that don't really involve thinking anyway! Read the book, fill this out. Read the section, answer the questions at the end! I mean, for God's sake, give us some room to think! What's the use of being the only intelligent creatures when we don't even use our brains half of the time? I remeber a time in class where a girl wrote down the lyrics to 'Rodolph The Red-nosed Reindeer' and got an A. What the hell?

Why can't teachers today give our students something to  think about? We have very smart kids in public schools getting half the education they deserve. Where's the use in that?

Schools have also lost their discipline. Wonder why the kids act so badly? Fact of the matter is, the teachers and parents don't know how to discipline the kids and show them who to listen to.

Students.

Why can't they look for an education instead of waiting for one to fall right into their lap? Why do they lack in curiousity? Why do they only do the minimum? I know I've never been one of those slackers, I wouldn't be able to live with my self knowing I could've done better.

Parents.

Why don't you raise your children right? Why can't you raise them to know what respect is? Why can't you raise them to always be working to be better? Why can't you teach them to look for knowledge instead of waiting for it to fall out of the sky?

I'm a genius in progress, I need room to think!
