My original post:
@ProfessorX821: Students (Past and Present), help settle a debate between @Srta_Kelly and I. What is the goal of High School? Use #GoalofHS
@_shannonlewis: "to graduate!"
@RyanVMorris: "feel like most teachers just want to move you along to the next grade and don't really care if we actually learn"
@AlexisHLavallee: "sadly to strictly teach the curriculum without focusing on the value/passion for learning"
@mhoikleton18: "with the exception of a few, most (teachers) don't care. Less time needs to be spent on sen.Proj. And more on real life app:
@JacquelineRF: "to force us to learn, work and keep us occupied..."
@paige_dion: "Truth: To graduate. What it should be: learn both knowledge and skills that will help in college/future career."
There were some positive responses as well, but the overwhelming majority had a very negative feeling of the high school experience. And as you can see from the above comments, these are concerns beyond the stereotypical, "school sucks" responses.
What can be done to fix the problem? Can it be fixed?
