school systems


people always bid me a fair congratulation,

saying i will make it to see graduation.

get good grades, study at my school,

get into college, my life is so cool!


but lately i don't know what to do anymore,

in class i have mastered every common core.

learning is just another repeating loop,

and class is another wild chicken coop.


i don't even know where to attend for college,

why are we only defined by classroom knowledge?

why is it the way to know who is worse or who is better,

is to associate a student with a rank or a letter?


i was told about the men that made world flights,

but i was never taught my human rights!

teachers speak about the troops of the greek,

but i am clueless on how to help the poor or weak!

i learned about mountains and faraway hills,

but how the hell will i handle my first house bills?

a million and one equations to benefit me?

because clearly there is zero benefit from what i can see.


im tired of being pushed and i am not being rude,

im tired of wasting time and receiving attitude.

i try to understand but have no luck,

this is why i think school systems suck.

    i agree 100% im a high school senior but depending what school you go to there are classes offered like career of exploration where you learn about careers and what to do in a job and learn about work environment and there are tqo courses of this the 2 half of this course (second year) is when you can have hands on learning also about bills and getting a job and learning how to do taxes and learning how to do loans, debit and credit cards there is a course called consumer math that teaches you real life things like this and is really helpful i highly RECOMMEND looking into this class if your school offers it good luck 🙂 if you have any more questions about these kind of things just message me through here and ill be gladly to help girlie i just turned 18 and i wondered the same thing about this my 9th 10th grade year too ill be glad to help (im a girl by the way) 🙂
