Chance HM started this petition to Department of Education

Over the past fifteen years of my life I have been force fed pointless information that I will never, ever use in the real word.  Very soon I will be an adult, paying taxes, putting loans down for a home, and voting.  And do you want to know something, they have taught absolutely none of that in my educational years.  I have no idea how to even write a check, or how to handle money at all.  Instead of handing us books and papers or online requirements that we have to do that night, on top of the three hours of sleep I get a night, maybe you should teach us how to handle money or file for bankruptcy or whatever!  If you want to teach algebra, or how Julius Caesar dies, then maybe you should teach that to the kids that want to learn those things.  Me, myself, I hate every part of school except literature, and i'm positive that language arts is the least favorite of other students.  All I'm saying is if you want kids to stay in school and actually learn to succeed, then maybe you should let them follow their dreams.  Also, waking up at 5:15 in the morning does not help.  I spend all day at school, after school working at my job, and through the night doing school work.  We need more sleep, we need less stress.  According to several mental health studies, today's generation of teenagers is the most stressed and anxious out of all generations before them. This has been proven to be an effect of large homework loads and deprived sleep.  If you want your children to stay in school, I'd suggest rethinking what you teach and how much you teach it.
