Also by helloimkatie+70It would be a good idea to have "The Price Is Right" with billionaires, just to see how out of touch they are. Amirite?
Also about Education+109This generation of isn't dumber than any that came before them. It is just getting harder to cheat at school. amirite?
Also about Education+130There's nothing wrong with checking your phone once or twice during class. amirite?
Also by helloimkatie+70When a company offers me a better price after I cancel their subscription, they're just admitting they were overcharging me. Amirite?
Also about Education+141If you can spell dyslexic, you're not dyslexic, amirite?
Also by helloimkatie+5I'm seeing some posts on here that make me REALLY hope they're sarcastic. Stuff like, "America doesn't need freedom!" or "Letting women out of the kitchen and black people integrate in society is BAD." Those are sarcastic, right? Please tell me they're sarcastic. Amirite?
If you realize you’re in the process of being brainwashed, you’re 90% ahead of your fellow classmates. A college degree is pretty worthless these days but I believe it’s important to complete it because it shows you can complete it and that in itself goes a long way. Give your teachers what they want to hear but challenge every single last one of them.
There's going to be certain things that culture will try to force into us our entire lives, not just in school. But that doesn't mean you don't need an education. I'm actually pretty much with you here - if you believe the teacher is indoctrinating a certain viewpoint that you believe to be wrong then, to quote you, "Give your teachers what they want to hear but challenge every single last one of them." (That's my life as a Christian these days, trying to have my religion and live in peace.)
I’m not saying to not get an education. I’m just saying a lot of what is appearing to be education is actually indoctrination. It got so bad at one point in my education I was just handing in shlock that I thought my profs wanted to hear and I would always ace the course even though I felt what I was handing in was truly crap.
Oof yeah I felt that in my AP world class and in my Theology class :(
You would think after a few failed tests my teachers would suggest something more fitting... As long as these people have jobs i say good for them... But honestly most high school teachers suck anyway, i think i saved myself from brainwashing by not paying attention
I've seen your posts, you did not save yourself from brainwashing, you "saved" yourself from learning how to not get brainwashed.
I bet you are a good student
...As a matter of fact, I am.
