A school is a place where kids can learn, but school is also a prison to most kids around the USA. A school does weird things like make us learn stuff, not because we will use it in the future, but because we need to know it for a test. Yes, we only learn something for a test.

My mom once told me that most adults read at a fifth-grade level. Most of the time the things we’re taught, end up being forgotten. Usually, it’s all for a grade. “I don’t like grades,” Madison said.

Kids in school usually undergo a lot of pressure. Emily and Madison are both stressed when it comes to school. Emily said, “All the time.” and Madison said, “A lot of the time.” This is not a good thing. Stressing out kids will never be a good thing.

If schools aren’t stressing us out there putting nonsense in our heads just so we can get a good grade. Standardized tests are too crude to be used. The guy that created them even says that. Should we get rid of them? “At least most of them,” Emily stated.

We need to come up with a solution to all the torture the school system puts students and even teachers through. Let’s destroy common core and create an environment of knowledge and imagination. Because we are not defined by whether we are an A or a B. We are the future and the generation to innovate schools for the next generation to come.
