School - "I'm Gay and 1st day of High School"

hey everyone BJ Kolumbi here I have a few things to talk about in this post soyou probably already know what it's about judging by the title if you read it but I'll get to that in a second
I started high school today, I'm a French man Frenchman yeah I'm a Frenchman in high school now
apparently it's slang for a ninth grader I guess it's because France was the ninth country ever made but yeah the first day of high school for me it was kind of bad and kind of good
you see first things first. a bunch of atheist kids recognized me from my youtube videos and well they jumped me and locked me in the janitor's closet I I tried to escape by making like a bomb thing out of some random chemicals I found in there to blow up the door like on Breaking Bad but uh it didn't really work I guess but yeah
I eventually got out but I missed more than half my classes because I was stuck in that closet I did get to go to gym class though it's actually my favorite class now even though it's my first day you see there's this really cool new gym teacher and I really like him he taught us how to not be embarrassed when we change our clothes in the locker room
I was born without the ability to feel shame though so I wasn't so embarrassed anyways but yeah my gym teacher is really cool he kind of looks just like Ricky Martin (my favorite singer)
so after gym I went to the library and I got this book called a Moby Dick the title made it seem like it would be a good book but it turned out to be really boring so I just threw it in a trash can at lunch
what else oh yeah I played a really funny practical joke on my bus driver riding home you see I was sitting in the front seat because I'm supposed to sit in the back with all the other high schoolers but they were giving me some really mean looks so I went and sat in the front with some kindergartener kid anyway so the bus started to go really really fast and I just reached
over and uh well I reached over my seat and I and I covered the bus drivers eyes and then I said to him I bet you can't drive without looking and uh you see we almost kind of crashed into this huge truck but uh it was really funny

but now that I'm done with my first day of high school on to the main topic of this post that is of course my mom finally bought me lil B's new album
it's called I'm gay it's the Flintstones gay though not the the curse word that's also the title of the post but yeah little B is one of my favorite singers now because he has a B in his name and B is my favorite letter as well as my favorite animal and uh yeah that's that's all I had to say for this post

this was BJ kulumbi and my first day of high school so yeah signing off for now and be sure to read my next post because you see I'm gonna have actual footage of me with President Obama and I'm gonna be asking him some really important questions so stay tuned for that

Opportunities not to be missed! You presently aspire to becoming a translator / interpreter and maybe also a politician. Given your proficiency in languages and your avowed interest in Japan and in China the chance to properly immerse yourself at a young age in Japanese and Chinese ways and to gain a deeper understanding of life in those countries is the best and surest foundation for a successful and rewarding career. Also if you were to opt for an alternative career - in business or diplomacy for example - the knowlege and experience gained would still be invaluable and prove a great asset.

I think it's a good thing that it is.

School - "The true, substantial education"

In the world, also in our country, students has learned and studied only for their test or grade. It means that students study only for their own test, not for their substantial life. It is because the world's education is leading that education, studying for the test. When our teachers said "This concept is so important that you have to memorize all of these concepts." Students immediately notice that it will be on the test, not thinking it usually uses in their daily lifetime. However, I think that education is wrong. The true education should be able to be used in real life based on contents learned practically rather than urgency in memorizing textbooks and examinations. For example, the real reason why we study English is that communicating with others, but we don't have time and opportunities to talk others with saying English. We learn English in school only vocabularies and much grammars which is not using in daily life too. Also, education changing is not only for English. It is also for other subject like math, art, science, language. I dream is to change our education method to practical and creative. (Education revolution!) How about your thoughts? I'm really curious about other people's ideas.^^

Dear Linda,

you posted your message about 2,5 years ago, but I only now saw it, still Iīd like to reply. As a teacher I can tell you about my own experiences. Good grades is all most students want. They arenīt interested in what they can do with the stuff they learn, they only study to pass the next test. My attempts to do something creative usually cause negative reactions. They always want to know whether or not they will get a grade on the task. Or whether or not it will be in the next test. If my answer is: no, but itīs a useful task because it develops your skills - they are reluctant to do it. Plenty of colleagues have made the same experience; maybe thatīs why things we do in English classes are mainly working with vocabulary and grammar! On the other hand, try to communicate without the vocabulary and grammar, LOL!

In China, however, the teacher tells you what to remember. Sometimes my English teacher teaches something thatís never used among British and Americans! Grades mean everything here.

I think people should be taught mostly the things we use in daily life. But we should study the things in textbooks and try to reward ourselves a higher education. But your right, it would help if teachers and parents showed the students where they will use things in daily life. I think, especially highschool students, students start to see school simply as a place to make friends and study for the next test. And some students may be pushed to get better grades in certain subjects (e.g A in Math C in Language Arts A in Science so on) But I feel they need to be recognized not as people who fail, but as people who have succeeded. Even if it's just a certain subjects, you don't need to have good grammer to be a accountant. And as long as they do know what they need to, they can succeed.

Education is important. But we need to recongnize where students talents lies, and need to show them were things can be used.

School - "Is rigth to relax requirmemts to make more people can graudate in china ?"

In my college ,our teacher make the different class for the different levels. Then in normal times ,the more great class' test is harder than the poor class .Yeah ,I do not deny it ,but I can not agree they take the normal scores to the final transcipt. It is not fair .Because maybe the finally the poor students scores are close the great one , even higher .How irony it is! Also, someone retake course for renew the not satisfied scores and someone just because too poor to through the first text .But many teachers do not attention that, they always give the final scores at will ,and almost do not look the examination paper .
Is rigth? Yeah ,you make more people can graudate, but it is useful, they still poor. And the others can not find the good one through the transcipt .
Are you face that in your country? What do you think about it? Tell me your opion ,let us discuss !

I am a 12-year-old French college student and I have never had any grade or ranking at school
I think the note never encouraged people to work well. A good student often works to get good grades, and is not always interested in teachers' comments on their copy. then the notes create demotivating hierarchies

Maybe from a teacher's perspective, they wanted to help the students score for a better future. But truth be told, in a student's perspective, it is not fair at all. This sometimes happened in my school years. Cheating, leaked questions are those of the things that i hated.
