      The current school system is ruining the mental health of kids more and more every day. School is not about learning anymore. It is about pounding information into kid’s brains until the test day.

      The school systems are not caring about if kids are actually learning, and if a student doesn’t understand something, they get punished. Why is it that students get punished for not understanding something? Shouldn’t they be helped into understanding it instead? 

       The grading system is absolutely awful. It does not even a little bit reflect whether or not a student is learning. Everybody’s brains are wired differently, so why should students be punished and looked at differently when their brains are different than the other kids? It is unfair and cruel, and it is teaching kids that you have to be “perfect.” NOBODY IS PERFECT! WHY ARE WE TAUGHT THAT WE HAVE TO BE PERFECT WHEN IT IS IMPOSSIBLE?

      Students are pounded with more work every day. Almost all students say how badly their mental health has declined since school has started back up again. Why is nobody talking about this? Students are getting to the point of feeling suicidal because of how much work they are piled with and the feeling that they have to be perfect. This is NOT okay. You should be worried about this.
