No one should be forced to hang out at a morgue five days a week. However, many children are required to spend more than eight months in public schools that are filled with sickness and death.
Has America fallen asleep? Are we unable to see that numerous public schools have transformed into morgues?
From a student’s perspective:
Why am I forced to sit next to a seventh grader who smells like drugs every day? It is not fair. Then most of my classmates just give the teachers a hard time, so by the time the teachers start to teach, the bell rings. This happens every day. I should not have to be in the same class as those kids.
While my parents are teaching me to honor education, those students’ parents are teaching them to value nothing at all. You should see some of their parents when they come to the school. They show up smelling like sewage and look dirty, hair knotted, words trailing, eyes closing.
Most of my classmates are being raised by those types of parents and it is obvious too. This is obvious because those kids come to class unclean, they swear at the teachers, bully the students and the staff, and they don’t complete assignments.
I wish the world could see what really happens inside of my school. My parents would discipline me for the rest of my life if I behaved like those kids. I don’t even want to go to school because I don’t want to be trapped by so many kids who disrupt the classes.
It is suffocating me to be around unruly students. They are totally abusive. Then there are so many who supposedly have ADHD. A diagnosis of ADHD does not give kids the right to act like animals.
My parents should sneak into my school and see what I deal with for five days a week. They would smell the dead bodies, the dead minds, the dead attitudes, and the lifeless future leaders.
My parents warned me to stay far away from drugs, yet I am surrounded by drug addicted kids. They tell me to save sex for marriage, yet these kids are having sex on school property and some of them are even pregnant. It’s not fair that I should be punished for wanting to learn.
If I were in charge, I would put all those kids in the auditorium each day and have their parents monitor them as the students complete the assignments. And if that idea is unrealistic, I would have these kids be tutored on the weekend instead of attending school.
I would take these steps because those kids should not be around “normal” children. They have ruined the original purpose of a “free” education. This gift of learning is not honored by those destructive kids, so they should be removed from the normal population.
The decaying students have parents who do not even want to be bothered with them. Then they come to school to torture us children who want to learn. There are still a few students who are still alive in the public schools, but if the departments of public education leave us in the same classrooms with these “dead” kids, we will perish with them at the morgue of public education.
