Teachers Talking Shit About Parents

Rate my videos you insane libertarian - when I was in school I genuinely thought it was daycare for humans that had not reached legal adult age. I started signing myself out of school at 15 by writing notes and signing them with my name. They didn't bother to scrutinize the sig.

Yes it explains a lot about you and a lot about me. You're right about that.

When I worked in a school I found that the staff were so relieved when kids like you truanted.

 

Less dissruption during lessons.

You would not learn anything so your absence only harmed yourself and aided those who wanted to learn.

 

That's you

 

Now, what did you learn about me?

I already know you are an ultra-conformist that has had your critical thinking essentially beaten out of you - it would follow that you would never question any form of indoctrination or "educational" context because your focus is showing how well you obey and reaping whatever rewards come from that. The teachers didn't know I was "truant" because they didn't bother to look - basically I began operating as a university student does at age 15. I graduated high school with an A average - hilariously had a 96% in senior year physics but never passed math beyond grade 10. That got me a tuition scholarship to Carleton U's Jouralism Program that starts with 350 students and finishes with 75. I worked my way through school and took a student loan, then paid the loan off within three years after I gradualed with a Bachelor of Journalism with Honours.

 

Today I make $90,000 a year as a technical, marketing, and public relations communications expert working in cybersecurity. 

 

One thing you got right exactly - if I found myself in a class with a foolish and creatively-bankrupt drone of a teacher that disrespected their students and enaged in overly-authoritarian or hypocritical behavior, rather than avoid the class in the worst cases I would attend religiously and make their lives a living fucking hell. I enjoyed doing this, and for the classes with teachers that did respect their students and actually "taught" us things - interesting things -  I would assist the teacher in maintaining a smooth classroom. This had the hilarious effect of pitting one group of teachers against another with respect to my conduct to the point where arguments could be heard coming from the teachers lounge. The effect was a canceling out and I was just left alone, yes. Still, they never figured out the "writing my own notes" thing, but you might be right in that they just didn't "look" too closely because who really wants to deal with a kid like that. Honestly, I spent a lot of effort on ensuring the right adults were afraid of me, and that worked really well for me. 

 

To each their own I suppose.

" The teachers didn't know I was "truant" because they didn't bother to look 

 

Oh dear, teachers know which troublemakers are there before taking a register!

 

Your 90,000 dollars a year reflect your values, fortunatly not mine.

In Canada 90,000 a year is nothing to brag about - just wanted you to know that I'm not on the street. I pretty much was for a while when I got sick and our socialized health care system made everything worse. Had to solve the medical issue myself, all on my own, then bring the results to a doctor who confirmed I was correct and the other doctors were wrong. If I didn't live as though most people who occupy a position of authority, in whatever field, are on the whole mostly full of shit, I probably wouldn't be here right now.

They're right though. Parents aren't bitching about their kids not getting an education, they're bitching coz they aren't getting their free 8 hours babysitting. There's nothing wrong with complaining about that, but lets call it what it is.
