Well then you guys have got it right.

I've worked in plenty of schools as well as studying History not only to secondary school level but as a degree. I did not personally learn about the Soviet Union till university and I've never seen it being taught in any school that I've worked at.

The Nazis/WWII is overdone in school, I learnt fuck all about WWI at school, only things like how it affected Scotland at home eg the fishing industry.

They should probably do more British history, shit like English Civil War, Scottish Wars of Independence, Union of Crowns, Act of the Union 1707, Irish Independence and the troubles for modern history. I did very little to nothing on these topics!

The amount of Britons who have no clue of their country's history is sickening!

Are you a physicist or an engineer? Do you realise how many different types of engineer there are and how much we need them to have the society we have? You don't get that if you don't teach algebra

To be fair though mate, most countries teach history that actually applied to them. Most learn about communism studying Animal Farm (everybody I know studied that in high school btw.) You can't expect the Soviet Union to be taught at near the same degree as the Nazis because they weren't flying planes bombing the shit out of us like the Nazis were. Learning about the Soviet Union over the Nazis isn't putting a focus on British History at all. Maybe I had a rare education, i don't know, but I was taught all about the Romans, Saxons, Normans, 100 years war, Magna Carta era, Crusades, Tudors/Stuarts, Napoleonic Wars and both World Wars. That's not half bad when you consider the sheer length of time we've been around.

Yeah but there are a ton of people who do and do important things in the world. I mean we basically teach everyone the fundamentals and like 2% of the population needs it in their jobs but we really need those people to know their shit.


I don’t know if this is unpopular but I think there are a lot of people that just won’t perform well in school. I did really well in school but never tried. It’s impossible that the people who struggled did less than me. I was always smart and I don’t think it’s something that was taught to me. I think it was just a good draw for me.

maths is a key skill. Im not sure why anyone would think algebra is useless.....unless they never use it their job but I dont see that as a reason why it shouldnt be taught. Every employer looks at your maths grade. Algebra is just part of it.

There is certain subjects at school that I feel were totally pointless like music and art. Even though they were fun I wouldve rather had a lesson on shit that actually matters. There was a serious lack of simply preparing you for everyday living I found. It just didnt factor in.

Music and art is only useful if you decide to take that up as a career path. Most will not. They are more hobby subjects. PE is fine cause youve got to have some physical exercise during school hours.

--------

overall school is a poor reflection for some people. they just arnt so academically minded and therefore wont show their strengths until they actually get out in the real world but having poor grades makes it difficult to actually get anywhere. I also know some people with very good grades in theory but are useless in the real world but because they have those grades people still give them the time of day.

"I remember how you used to shine back then, you went down so easy like a glass of wine my friend, when the dawn came up you felt so inspired to do it again but it turns out you only get to do it once."


You can't give me a reason, I don't need one to shine, You can't give me a feeling 'cause it's already mine

This could go a long way to teaching people what actual communists are instead of today's constant misuse of the term.

Not that Stalinism was even communism as expected.

Homework shouldn't be a thing. If you cannot find the time to teach something during the school year, you are teaching inefficiently.

Students shouldn't receive grants.

Why should my taxes pay for a whiney 19 year old to toss it off all day in a class room learning some pointless shit?
