There's a special place in heaven for janitors.


There's a special place in hell for the school with the fake mashed potatoes.

Did anyone who finished grade school actually get disappointed you never witnessed a food fight?

Schools: "Why are test scores dropping?"
Also Schools: Cancels academic courses to pay for new sports commodities.

So I live in Australia, so naturally it’s hot.

My school had the option of buying air conditioning,

Or

Signs. As in they have the school logo and the school name and the school mascot.

Guess which one they picked.

It was either a heatstroke or advertising. Needless to say both students and teachers were pissed.

The mashed potato story got me thinking about that one page in Diary Of A Wimpy Kid where the kids launched mashed potatoes into the ceiling.

I’m a bit late but our school hired Chinese teachers but instead of having them be there they hired Chinese teachers that were in China, and our classes had to Skype call them. We had Chinese lessons on skype basically. The teachers were terrible

Our school put vape detectors in the bathrooms. Some kid took a hammer and smashed the thing into pieces.

I have noticed a simple trend: The janitors are the sweetest people in the entire school. So undervalued, yet so loved in these stories.

Ah, yes. We had a big TV above the lunch line, and the only thing it did was show the lunch menu in a slideshow.

My school district is building a new middle school, even though we don’t really need a new one. So they are taking one of the elementary schools, tearing it down, putting those kids in the current middle school (which isn’t that much larger as it’s only 7-8 grade) putting a new building in and then bought a 3 million dollar dinosaur skull to put in the lobby

Bro, my old school spent so much on this Monitored recess program, and they’d HIRE from a company to instruct us on how we did our recess (this all took place inside, by the way. We rarely went outside, even when the weather was nice). They’d make us do arts and crafts, or play board games (not even the good ones. It was like Chess, Checkers and Mancala). We couldn’t use any of our technology and we didn’t really play any physical games because the room was to small and crowded. Whenever we got the chance to go outside, but someone spoke when we were lining up, the monitor would make us sit down and say “One Bad Apple Spoils The Bunch” We all h a t e d it with a Burning passion. Luckily, the program was only there for a year.

Oh God, that reminds me of my high school. Wed have classes that were on the other side of campus, and wed have, like, 5 minutes to get to one side and the other. It was awful. "Use your lockers to reduce the weight on your back!" They said as they also made us have very little time in between periods to do that. To make it worse, this was a high school that obviously was made for a smaller population of students and walking through the halls of the main building was like being in a crowded subway car.

Holy fuck what a prick. Its like literally stealing from kids.

8:45
This. This is a major reason why our schools are failing so bad. This is part of a larger stem of a really archaic, or even backward style thinking. We love seeing sports teams and cheer on our teams, but god help us if we can get people to actually fund education projects. A tiny class that barely cost any real money was dropped but a massive expensive project for gym and the football field somehow got the funding. I don't think its enough to just reform the school, the US needs a cultural revolution.

10:16
I can't help but feel this one is from "Personal experience."

13:06
"oh shit, that sucks, but you guys are going to put money and effort to fixing it for the sake of the students right?"
Parents/Teachers/Principles/Politicians/Etc: "Lol no"

15:57
Again, putting tons of emphasis on the sports facilities more than the students. Its sad seeing such a open, free school turn into a authoritarian nightmare. "How dare they be ungrateful!" Well then ASK THEM why they are upset, instead of doing what everyone else seems to do and just act like there is no ground for such baseless complaints!
