    Do you deserve your HS diploma?

    Another silly quiz

    I was disappointed by getting a question wrong (97%). <shrug> At least one question was poorly worded so what can you do?

    High School is not about becoming educated, it's about learning social behavior and how to work with others.
    Taking thart into account I guess I never earned mine.

    Me neither, and doing that test reminds me of why I hated being at school. I hate general studies. Half of that crap didn't apply to my hobbies then or my life now.

    I got 90something. I already forgot what it was.

    WTF HS were you at? I learned a lot in HS. And college. And grad school. Lunch is what you make of it, after all. The lack of love for knowledge here scares the cr@p out of me. You might as well be robots!

    I hated structure more than I hated knowledge. School shoved people into little buckets based on supposed intelligence. They taught you anything and everything under the sun based on the abilities of the people in your class and had no regard for what you, as an individual wanted. The best part was even in the best of classes they still taught to the lowest common denominator. I could barely keep up (or down I should say)

    School to me was nothing more than time passed. I learned nothing of what I use in my career/hobby today, there. I learned everything I needed to from previous jobs and my families work ethic. I take that and educate myself in areas I see fit. I learned how to enjoy learning. That and for the most part I dislike how pompous a lot of teachers were. Instead of being educators most were high and mighty. And the ones that were good/great, left to go on life trips.

    Personally, schools should teach people how to learn (heck just teach me how to enjoy it), not just jam the crap they want to teach from books. I knew what I liked and knew what I was good at, I taught myself when I was young and went into the classes bored because they had nothing to offer. I went to 3 years of computers classes (its all they offered back then) and I taught the teach more than he taught me.

    I do have to agree phantomcows school sounds pretty sweet. I know in my hometown there is now an *IT* highschool. Would have been much more up my alley than just high school. While the fill the required highschool requirements of the province, it offers a lot of advanced courses for those of us who had the knack. I just found highschool to generic to apply to me.

    im taking what called "I.B.". its a program subscribed to around the world by high schools, and it basicaly gives you a more well rounded education. It also gives you the option of graduating a year early or doing university 1 in high school (for free). and you get 10% bumb up in all your courses. ( 80%=88% on your report card)
