The Truth About High School

fail

You are an ‘A.’
I am a ‘B.’
She is a ‘C.’
And he is a ‘D.’
The rest of you are ‘F’s.

They claim that only the A’s through B’s have a chance at degrees,
but they must have an ACT above 23.
How ludicrous, basing success off of characters and digits.
A person is a person, not a number. 

This system is broken.
How dare they classify us as being a loser or a success.
Do they not know that there are different kinds of smart?

Book smart
Street smart
Business smart
Sport smart
Art smart

So why do they only say book smart people are the ones that are “smart”?
This is a disgrace.
How can they not appreciate the other fields of smart.
Will the educators ever be educated in their criticisms.
By the book is not the only way to learn.
This is my concern.

Science,
English,
History,
And Math

Pages 331 through 378 is due for tomorrow.
Read!
Read!
Read!

There is no sympathy.
Your other plans are no longer important.
They might as well not exist.
Who cares about your time with your friends, family or God.
If you don’t get an ‘A’, you might as well have gotten an ‘F.’

You must be perfect!
You must be perfect!
You must be perfect.

This is insanity.
Our lives are controlled by the pursuit of getting a degree.
We no longer can stop and smell the roses.
Instead we must focus on…

Science.
English.
History.
And Math.

They are preparing you for college,
when they should be preparing you for life.

You are an ‘A.’
I am a ‘B.’
She is a ‘C.’
And he is a ‘D.’
The rest of you are ‘F’s.
