What do you hate about school?
“I sit in my maths or science lessons and within 10 minutes I’m lost - and I sit there for the next 50 minutes feeling like a failure.”
Can you relate to this? You’re not a failure! It’s crazy to think that everyone will learn the same amount in an allocated period of time. We all have subjects we are better at.
“I hear the bell and know that I am going to be stuck in a classroom for the next 55 minutes, and I panic. It’s like I immediately feel trapped and just have to get out.”
Can you relate to this? The restrictive nature of the school timetable and day can cause anxiety for some people - they feel trapped.
“I’m expected to spend all my time studying things that I’m so not interested in. It’s boring and I don’t see the point of it.”
Can you relate to this? It’s not that you’re not interested in anything - it’s just that you’re not interested in what you’re being taught. You’d love to study other things; things that matter to you.
