The Torture Chamber
I shall be writing this from a Primary School Student's point of view, as I am in fact one. A prefect, more specifically. I shall not reveal my name in this blog as I do not want to be littered with questions by fellow students.
The school, is a place where students enrol in for an education. Back in the past, school, was quite innocent and yes, most could not afford to go to school. Students were hardworking, but only a fair few were the defiant and rebellious kind. We go to school to study, not to go around gossiping with others about the latest news about so-and-so and also not to go around bullying the small and weaker students. So, why is MOE letting this happen? Teachers are not taking action at all. Students are actually being intimidated/bullied/threatened by bigger/older students and the teachers act as if nothing has happened. I, myself, am being bullied by others, and now, I am particularly disliked by several of my classmates because of a few certain people who gossiped about me and spread a rumor. Anyway, I won't go into detail of that.
Why do some pupils loathe going to school? Here are some reasons that I have researched on:
1. I get bullied!
Maybe lower primary kids get more of these problems. If they are being bullied by older students, they will feel scared and will hate going to school when their older because of their past experiences.
2. There's too much homework!
As my friend, Tortured Student, has said in previous posts, we think that homework is unneccesary. So, why do teachers still torture their students by issueing piles and piles of worksheets? They also destroy the students weekends/holidays.
3. The teachers suck.
Yes, that is another reason. Some pupils actually love going to school, but it's because of the lunatic teachers that drive the students up the wall. The teachers, would sometimes vent their anger on the students and it can be a really horrible scene to watch.
4. My classmates SUCK TO THE CORE!
I personally think that I would be in this category. My friends, sorry, EX-friends, are backstabbers, liars and betrayers. They spilled all my secrets to the whole class and I've really hated them for that. Many students would not like to attend lessons because of their classmates, for fear they would bully them. Yes, I hate going to school for this reason.
5. I think school is not worth going to.
Although some of us think that way, we are still forced to attend school due to our parents as they pay for our school fees. And in case you didn't know, if you do not attend school for a countless times, you may risk getting expelled. Anyway, some students really don't care about school. They just don't. They don't give a single damn about it.
That's about all for my reasons. For now. I shall edit this post if I have any other reasons to add.
