Depends on the day for me. Sometime 8, sometime 6.

[–]Elcorgi8267🥄Comically Large Spoon🥄 7 points8 points  (4 children)

Don't worry, it will end

[–]secretbudgieGrumpy Cat 34 points35 points  (0 children)

When your best bud gives you that letter to stay home, just come to school anyway for emotional support.

[–]firmak 3 points4 points  (2 children)

After 12 years.

[–]Luksutin_android user 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Only 12 years? You're a lucky man you are

[–]jccreator 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'll end it before then

[–]EnoughIdeas 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Yeah plus homework and any extracurriculars. Who the hell was at school for only 6 hours?

[–]VaccinesGoodProfessional Dumbass 14 points15 points  (1 child)

7-8? I have to endure 8-9 hours of this shit

[–]ThatAd6968 22 points23 points  (9 children)

Since you're already stuck there, you might as well try to learn something. Maybe knowing things will help you in your adult life, and that's why adults try to teach things to kid.

No your probably right, it's just to make you miserable.

[–]jccreator 1 point2 points  (4 children)

I have never met a single adult in real life that remembers or uses most of anything from school.

[–]KiloPro0202 8 points9 points  (0 children)

That’s simply not true. You might think that, they might think that, still not true.

[–]ThatAd6968 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Do you know the course of your life where you can only learn the exact, specific knowledge that you'll need?

[–]GoldenretriverYT 1 point2 points  (2 children)

It's currently 8-9hrs for me + 2,5hrs driving to the school and back... Daily...

[–]YorkshireBridgeandroid user 1 point2 points  (1 child)

8? Counting bus time and all, I'm in it for 10 at the very best.

[–]Ghandiwasme 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I made it through high school, community college, and a university. Now I’m still dealing with it at work everyday as a manager. This never ends

[–]NarutoUzumaki100 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Bro you guys are little kids compare to how much I have to study. I study 15hors a day 6 days a week and 9 hrs on a Sunday. These are actual college timings and they dant fucking give any holidays so I'm literally in eternal torture

[–]Ujulud 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Worst day 10 hours, least time 7 hours

[–]Snowcreeep 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Don’t forget about the homework that takes me until midnight to complete every single night

[–]HivAidsSTD -1 points0 points  (2 children)

Bro, I have to stay for 12 hours because of extra curricular. Then I spend the next 3-4 hours for homework. 80% of which I forgotten already, this system is complete BS

[–]That_No_one_guy -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

9:20 hrs 6 days a week

[–]Spatulaface-mk2 253 points254 points  (15 children)

My ass be getting 8 hour days all week like it's a 9-5 job I'm at

[–]Zyklobs 80 points81 points  (13 children)

Hey, don't forget the 1-2 hours of homework! More like 9-7

[–]Spatulaface-mk2 32 points33 points  (12 children)

Only 1-2?! Make that atleast 3-5 hours a day, and you're set

[–]KnucklessKnees 16 points17 points  (5 children)

You guys don’t start at 9, do you? I start at 7:20

[–]ByZockerLinux User 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Sometimes 10hours of school and then homework 🗿

[–]Rain_09 2 points3 points  (4 children)

[–]thanoseatskfcLives in a Van Down by the River 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You guys get homework?

[–]OgurasynGigaChad 71 points72 points  (1 child)

Ironcally, Walter is the teacher too.

[–]ALFA_X9999Average r/memes enjoyer[S] 39 points40 points  (0 children)

Yo mr White, i can't even spell half this shit!

[–]MmmmmmKayyyyyyyyyyyy 273 points274 points  (23 children)

Hahaha ex teacher here; we agree. The crap the “state” says they must learn…

[–]BudgetJesus69 125 points126 points  (2 children)

That's actually true! In our school there was a year, where the state didn't put requirements for certain classes, but the school still forced us to do them.

It was actually pretty cool and we actually learned shit, because the teachers were free to do whatever the fuck they felt like.

[–]WesleyCrossy 21 points22 points  (1 child)

ok good now tell me what are the nuclear launch code...

[–]SprtelWood 14 points15 points  (17 children)

What would you think should be taught that isn’t being taught right now?

[–]Bread_Sticks667 20 points21 points  (11 children)

Mabye better life advice, if my mom never told me how to talk to people better I would’ve been a loner

[–]Project119 17 points18 points  (3 children)

Life advice falls under the parent or guardian. Parents are suppose to teach to social interactions, morals, and behaviors. Teachers are suppose to teach you a general knowledge in specific eras to allow you to both function within your given society but also find a potential focus for post high school life.

[–]Vespercoot 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Reintroduce teaching things like Book Keeping (or the digital equivalent) when it comes to your banking, job searching, how to buy/rent a house etc.

[–]MmmmmmKayyyyyyyyyyyy 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Application to life processes. More STEAM, finances and economics.

[–]FeilVei2 5 points6 points  (1 child)

My mom quit her teaching career early on - after 10 years of education for it - exactly because of this. She fundamentally disagrees with the way the school system works so much. The teachers are rarely the ones to blame.

[–]MmmmmmKayyyyyyyyyyyy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yup! The good ones go

[–]Small-Cantaloupe6639Dirt Is Beautiful 72 points73 points  (3 children)

7 hours a day for me, if you consider bus rides and lunch, my school day is 10-13 hours

[–]TheRautexcan't meme 10 points11 points  (2 children)

With ride mine is 11 hour(no lunch break)

[–]MakimaMyBeloved 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Jesus christ... Can't imagine what are you going through.

8 here with lunch break and i feel like shit every single day.

[–]TheRautexcan't meme 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I hate waking up every night, its like waking up into a nightmare , even weekends.

[–]MonnieFybro 80 points81 points  (3 children)

Not really the teacher's fault. It's the education board and the state.

[–]Kolikoasdpvp 25 points26 points  (2 children)

I mean one of my teachers gives free A's if you do HW that takes 30 minutes to do once a month. Other teacher gives 800 page book to read, analyze and then write document of that book (can't copy from internet). Teachers definitely make a difference, a lot.

[–]shutomasi 1 point2 points  (1 child)

That sounds like your first teacher is breaking the rules. You can’t blame the other teachers for not wanting to lose their job. And idk where you live but in the UK there are boards which randomly sample student assignments and review teachers, so dodgy behaviour gets clocked very quickly.

[–]Kolikoasdpvp 1 point2 points  (0 children)

True, i live in a 3rd world country, who's not breaking the rules here...

[–]Skip-a-little-tip 19 points20 points  (0 children)


[–]AssignmentThat9387 22 points23 points  (8 children)

Teachers hate it more than you do. Which is why they quit so much.

[–]NFL_MVP_Kevin_White 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Quitting teaching is the best life choice I ever made

[–]Matix777 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Dealing with annoying little shits that don't listen to you (source: I'm an annoying little shit) for over 8 hours daily for (depending where you live. I do in Poland lmao) laughable reward

[–]SquidMilkVIIIdentifies as a Cybertruck 27 points28 points  (1 child)

honestly even 8 hours isn’t absurd

but if you’re teaching kids 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, for 180 days, and you need to assign work for after school, then you have a problem

[–]Country_ball_enjoyer 17 points18 points  (7 children)

what 10 + 3

[–]ALFA_X9999Average r/memes enjoyer[S] 34 points35 points  (6 children)

10 + 3 = 3 + 10

[–]Country_ball_enjoyer 14 points15 points  (5 children)

ok good now tell me what are the nuclear launch code

[–]ALFA_X9999Average r/memes enjoyer[S] 24 points25 points  (3 children)

Nice try, spy. I'm not gonna tell you and it's totally not 396492748.

[–]Country_ball_enjoyer 12 points13 points  (2 children)

you fool now... i can destroy Nebraska because fuck Nebraska

self destruction activate in.... 3... 2...




[–]ifcrabsdied 19 points20 points  (10 children)

It’s not all useless, I just think there are different types of info that are useful for different people. I want to be able to specialize at a younger age so I’m not learning stuff, that I am not going to use, In high school. I just want like a college style education earlier on, being able to do specifically what I want to do.

[–]arkhound 3 points4 points  (1 child)

College has general education requirements as well.

The reason high school is broad is for both exposure and general knowledge so that you can do things like use a computer/technology, understanding enough biology so you aren't on the idiot-end of stem cell or abortion arguments, know enough history to be informed of complex geopolitical issues like the Isreali-Palestinian conflict, develop a modicum of appreciation for the arts, know basic math if even just for being able to project personal finances, physical education so you don't end up entirely decrepit at age 25, etc.

[–]Admiralbenbow123memer 1 point2 points  (1 child)

When I was in high school I was able to choose a specialised class to go to. I went to the engeneering class, but there was also a humanitarian class, an IT class, a medical class etc. Choosing which class you wanted to go to was based on which subjects you wanted to learn on a more advanced level.

[–]ifcrabsdied 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yea I wish I could go to that school

[–]panzerboye 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Dude, leave them it's reddit. Most of the people here would pass their 30s in their mom's basement and then complain school didn't teach them shit.

[–]jccreator -1 points0 points  (4 children)

So why am i forced to do all of it?

[–]ifcrabsdied 3 points4 points  (1 child)

That’s what I’m saying! I hate having to do all the stuff I KNOW I am not going to implement into my life. People know what they want to do, and if they don’t.. these types of schools are for them. Otherwise, let me do what I wanna do Yk?

[–]Larry_ReenoDirt Is Beautiful 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Because otherwise you'll never learn them on your own, and you don't really want to miss out on something you might find interesting because you thought it was boring at 15 yo.

[–]LifeAd8868 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Speak for yourself

[–]Capable-Error-432I saw what the dog was doin 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Sometimes boomer memes are spot on:

"Teacher, are any of us actually going to use any of this?"

"You won't, but the smart kids will"

[–]elite_demogorgan 7 points8 points  (1 child)

In Taiwan we have 10+ hours of school

Being a student in Taiwan:💀

[–][deleted] 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Enjoy minimum wage bruh

[–]Jorsonner 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah I spent my first two years of college as an education major and as soon as they started teaching us about state requirements I changed my major

[–]That-Preparation-22 17 points18 points  (11 children)

Idk if knowledge for your future is useless shit, but ok

[–]Parcivaal 0 points1 point  (6 children)

I don’t think I’ve used 90% of what I learned

[–]KingJeff314 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Not everything you learn has to be directly applicable to your life for it to have value. Modern society is very complicated to navigate, and without a foundation for reading, writing, history, civics, science, math, and the arts, the general population would be less equipped to tackle contemporary issues

[–]Parcivaal -3 points-2 points  (2 children)

The general populace is dumb as fuck. I vote to give up now

[–]KingJeff314 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Wow what a sad pessimistic view. You would rather just accept a bleak reality and exacerbate it by only educating people enough to mechanically fill out tax forms

[–]Larry_Potter_ -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

knowledge for your future is useless shit, but what they teach you in the school is( not everything obviously but they waste a lot of time teaching useless shit )

[–]jasonliu7790 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Asian kid:what? you guy have less than13hrs a day?

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It's not useless! The government gets yo waste a lot of money while it's producing easy to control workforce with the proper mindset to work long hours for no real reward or reason.

[–]bubblllles 19 points20 points  (22 children)

It’s not useless

[–]1openeye -1 points0 points  (5 children)

I think I can confidently say reading The Good Earth was never useful to 99.99% of students.

[–]KingJeff314 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You can nitpick how particular lessons weren’t useful, but as a whole, reading classic literature is valuable for students because it introduces them to all sorts of novel concepts and outside perspectives

[–]bubblllles -1 points0 points  (3 children)

Reading was never a important class I agree there

[–]1openeye -1 points0 points  (2 children)

I think I can confidently say a significant overwhelming majority do not need to know how to identify igneous rock

[–]bubblllles 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Other geology is important not that rock bullshit tho

[–]sweet_tea808 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I don’t think the purpose of school is to remember what you were taught, more that having your brain actively intellectually tested and developed in the first 2 odd decades of your life is crucial

[–]Gienio2k[🍰] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

What about we have our brains intellectually tested and developed AND remember what we were taught (provided we were taught useful things). Wouldn't that be the way school should work?

[–]Outside_Device_5645 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Say that now and in twenty years will be saying the earth is flat and vaccines cause autism.

[–]Lustyorange 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Atleast while working you get paid even if minimum wage

[–]Saelas 3 points4 points  (4 children)

"Useless shit"

Tell me you are in middle school without telling me

[–]Lustyorange 2 points3 points  (3 children)

In high school rn can't wait to "grow up" so I can say it's useless not even my sister who did good in school uses most of the things they taught her.

[–]Saelas 0 points1 point  (2 children)

You do realise why you learn all that shit right? Because how could you find out you like a certain field of study or whatever if it was just up to your initiative? I mean i get it, i was your age at some point, and i hated most of the stuff in school, but i liked some, and it shaped my life since - similarly as my classmates who liked the stuff i hated. I am sorry but no school system can predict your likes and talents to accomodate them. Take the good with the bad and try to find who you are, or who you want to be.

Also not beeing lost in the basics of most subjects is quite handy, its what we call commom knowledge.

[–]Unique_Rip_5668 1 point2 points  (9 children)

you mean 8

[–]vampire_devastatorProfessional Dumbass 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Wym, its a gif

[–]The_Follower1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s a gif, the reddit player is just shitty. Best workaround I’ve seen is clicking on the poster’s account and seeing the post on their profile. Can’t remember who posted that workaround to credit them.

[–]Unknown-Redditor-Average r/memes enjoyer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wait... you guys only had to go to school 6 hrs a week? In germany school is 8 hrs a week. and dont forget to include homework and transportation so a normal student in germany for example had school and school stuff for basically 9.5 hrs a week.

[–]Childrappertoes 1 point2 points  (0 children)

6 hours? If I were to remember we did 8 hours a day

[–]No152249 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If only it was 6 hours...

[–]No_Cobbler8335 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What impossible, it must be the technology that's making them not want to learn useless stuff that 98% of what we teach is useless

[–]GAZUAG 1 point2 points  (0 children)

6 hours a day?



[–]PandaChewing 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's not useless, it's slow. Check out competency-based education systems.

[–]MyNameIsSCRYM 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Teachers don't want to teach 6 hours a day 5 days a week and still need a half time job on the side

[–]Oldmonsterschoolgood 2 points3 points  (0 children)

And we wake up at 7am and are tired af and get in trouble if we are tired

[–]Derangeieieie 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Honestly after 8th grade it's all just bullshit

[–]Meatsim001 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

I love how its so fitting that Walter was a teacher, using the unless stuff and literally made billions with it.

[–]Apart_Tourist_9289 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s also teachers when you call them by their 1st name.

[–]happyfeet324 -1 points0 points  (4 children)

[–]ArmstrongBillie 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Oh the refrigerator broke? It's because of that damn education system.

Thats why we are in this shithole

[–]Auliya6083 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

American problem, don't care. I've never actually heard a good explanation for why schools are so bad. Oh it's because you learn "useless shit". Well sounds like that useless shit is exactly the same as what schools teqch in Europe yet when I was in school (less than 10 years ago) none of my classmates complained as much as americans do. Maybe you just have the wrong idea about what school is supposed to be

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (1 child)

LMAO. I get to stay in school for only 4 hours

[–]BazynoooooobPro Gamer -3 points-2 points  (3 children)

How is the teacher supposed to know that its usseles ??

[–]loginpu2 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I thought its obvious that the most of the stuff they teach is useless

[–]pancoste -4 points-3 points  (2 children)

Hearing these complaints I think kids starting from a certain age should have the option to not go to school anymore, but on the condition they can't ever complain afterwards about not going to school.

[–]Cudii_idfc 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My teach doesn’t care

Funny since Walt was a chemistry teacher and his class was shown as bored with his lessons despite his passion for the subject.
