I usually go in defence of Teachers, seeing as most of my family members are teachers. I seriously hate how people try to lecture them. "Oh you should inspire kids to learn and explore on their own", that's just fucking stupid, yes its important to inspire a child, but not everyone is going to be "inspired" by calculus of by the writings of Shakespeare. "They should teach us stuff that will actually be useful", that esentially means "I didn't like that subject or it was too hard for me in school, so they should do more stuff that I liked". And exams, now don't get me wrong, there's a lot of problems with exams and they aren't perfect, but no one has come up with a solution that is different AND asses if the students actually learnt something.Schools are not factories of indoctrination either, and no home-schooling isn't a solution that everyone can enjoy.
