Declaring Independence From School

Decent Essays

I want to declare independence from school. This essay is meant to portray my feelings towards school and how pointless it is. There are so many other things I could be doing than being at school. I could be venturing out in the world and exploring new things and socializing with new people and participating in cool and extravagant events. Instead, for five days out of the week, for 9 months in one year, with only a few breaks during the school year, I, among many other people, are stuck inside this building doing the opposite of what I could and want to be doing with the 13 years of my life that school has taken away from me. I’m not sure what I want to do in my future, but I doubt it has anything to do with the outrageous subjects were learning …show more content…

They set so many rules to follow and continue to change them, which is hard to follow and most of the rules are stupid and irrelevant.
