As a high school student, it bores me being in school. So is everyone. Most of the time, my classmates would rather sleep than listen to lectures. When asked about my favorite subject, I answer, break time. These are the five main reasons why.
Most of the time, my classmates would rather sleep than listen to lectures.
1. I find my teachers boring.
I once asked a friend what bores him at school, he replied, lectures. Why is that, I asked. Then he said, it is not the lecture or the lesson but the teacher himself. I was mesmerized by his response. Students don’t get to pick who will teach them regardless if you study in a private or public school. Maybe it is not the teacher himself that students find boring but the way they teach. It does make me want to start counting sheep.
2. My subjects are only for the left brained.
Since the K12 curriculum was implemented, some specific academic competences were given more priority than others. But as it appears, they focus more on developing the brain but not the body. Students learn more when they are actively engaged with the lessons. I want to be continually moving, and sitting for a whole day makes want to bring a pillow just in case.
3. My learning environment is undesirable.
Our environment greatly influences the way we perform our tasks. On hot summer days, I find it hard to think well. Our school building is an open prison. Can someone donate air-conditioned, please? Rainy days makes it hard for students like me to attend school. Yet, class suspension only happens when the mayor makes a Facebook post. It seems nobody wants to make a decision at school.

4. Technology is fast paced and my school is slow.
Technology is about making our life easier and doing things faster. My generation of students are caught in that phenomena. Unlike the older generation, the youths of this era want everything to be done in a fast-paced manner. I cannot withstand even a half day of lecture. I can google answers to problems within minutes.
5. I have no idea why I got to school.
Most student go to school because everyone else does. Because their parents told them to do so. That is the same reason why I go to school. I heard that education is the key to success and nation building. If I can only get to sit down with the Department of Education’s secretary, I only have one question to ask ‘Why is the Philippines still a poor country if we produce thousands of excellent graduates every year?’
