I Want to be Free

If you’ve read some of my previous posts, you know that school and me don’t necessarily get a long too well. No, I’m not some infamous delinquent hated by the school administration. I am actually a very good students. I never come to class late, I’m attentive, and I usually turn my homework in on time. At parent-teacher conferences, my instructors even informed my dad that they would like all their students to be like me.

But those teachers don’t know the truth. The don’t know how I really feel about the prison-like institution dubbed as school.

I honestly hate every second of everyday that I am trapped in the school’s confines. I hate being surrounded by a bunch of immature juveniles making out in the dreary, white hallways. I hate being pelted by teachers with worksheets and irrelevant information.

I just want be free from the school’s chains and learn at my own pace. I don’t want to have to be overcome with stress when I am not able to go at a slower pace to understand something. Nor do I want sit on my ass and listen to a teacher lecture about something I knew in 4th grade.  In other words, I just want to be homeschooled. Yes, homeschooled.

Now I know a ton of people are very opinionated about this topic. Many falsely accuse homeschoolers of being anti-social train wrecks that lack the knowledge to survive in the world’s fast pace environment. I would  have to disagree with that accusation though. All of the homeschoolers I’ve meant were actually extremely well-rounded. They easily adapted to diverse social environments and also had the ability to carry a polite conversation with people older than they were!  Plus, the homeschoolers I have meant are in multiple activities including dance, gymnastics, private language and music lessons, and many spend hours volunteering.

That’s what I want for me. I want freedom. I want to learn in an environment and in a way that right for me, not right for the other 1000 some children imprisoned in my high school.

  1. You should read my article on dearteenme.com. There’s a link on my blog. I relate to your experiences of being surrounded by kids who never took school seriously. I really benefited from the private high school I was lucky to attend.
