*I excelled in courses that I attended. I always got As on all my exams and papers, but I had such poor attendance that I almost failed out.
*Theory was simple, but they never taught theory - just rote memorization.
*Always drifted into own world, skipped classes like it was my religion and passed notes relentlessly.
*School is geared towards SJs, imo.
*I hated high school. I hate the way everything is taught. I hate learning something the first day and then listening to the teacher repeat the same damn thing for the next 2 weeks.
For all levels of education: I resent having to do homework because if I have to sit through the class, I shouldn't have to take the material home afterward and learn it properly on my own. I am a firm believer in either studying from the book or going to class, but not both because that's a waste of my time. But maybe that's just me...
