The school syllabus system has been very inefficient for a very long time. It was made in the industrial age and hasn't changed very much. It was designed for factory workers. The modern day age is very different. Big companies like people who are creative. But instead, in our current school system, you are always told what to do. You can't be very creative. This teaches kids that they are not in charge of their lives. But, when when students graduate they will be in charge of their own lives. Modern schools take our social skills. Teachers are always telling us what to do. If we talk, we get in trouble for talking and it goes on our permanent record. That is very stupid. It's no wonder the number of depressed, anti-social, suicidal kids has been rising. We need to learn useful stuff. Like how to get a job, a house, get a mortgage, a car, do your taxes, how to vote, how to monitor your health, the laws, financial advice, how to apply for a loan, build credit, investments, get a credit card, marital advice, how to have children, your human rights, first aid, medicines, politics, cooking, time management, how to handle stress, bullies, relationships, rejections, ect. School is the solution we came up for ignorance, but it's not working. We students have to get up so early. It has been scientifically proven that younger students do better when they get up earlier and pre-teens/teens do better when they get up later. And also, we go for so long. 13+ years spent going to school. It doesn't take that long to shove a life guide into someone's head. We have to get permission to commit basic bodily functions, like using the restroom. The excuse teachers use "Why didn't you go during break time?" Is stupid. Nobody can control when they have to do their business. They say you need school to be successful. No. There have been multiple successful people who made big things. Some were dropouts, some never went to school. If this petition gets lots of signatures, I will email it to the United States House of Represenatives, U.S. Supreme Court, The White House, U.S. Department of Education, the mayor of my city, the government of my city, and the governor and senate of my state. Please, watch these videos if you would like to further understand my point of view.
