  • Should private school become illegal?

    Best answer: Education still wouldn't be equal - a better thing would be to ensure that ALL state schools are given the same funding and can compete on equal footing with private schools.

    Otherwise, better off people will just use tutors, and still have an advantage.

  • When I don't study, I get great grades, B's, A's. When I study, I get C's??? Why??? And I was put in the smart class but suck at math. WHY?

    Best answer: My guess is that you only study when you need to. So when you don't study, it's something that you have down, anyway. When you do study, it's not enough, and not quality enough for the subject, which is why you got C's. Would have been D's or worse with no studying. Just improve studying in... show more

When you do study, it's not enough, and not quality enough for the subject, which is why you got C's. Would have been D's or worse with no studying. Just improve studying in your weak areas. Math would be a good start. Ask for help, too.

    About a month ago I moved to a new school and I hate it. This is my 4th high school already, my district only has 4 high schools so this is my last one I can go to. I have a problem at every school I go to, no one ever likes me, people always have a problem with me whether it’s the way I look, dress, walk, talk, people always think I’m weird and bully me. I have never had a friend at school before, I’m always alone at every school. I hate this so much I don’t know why people are like this with me it’s like I have bad luck or something. What should I do? How do I deal with something like this and how do I fit in with people? What are cool things to say? I’m just so awkward and weird.

  • How did children used to learn before the public education system came into existence?

    Best answer: There were private tutors for those with enough money to hire them, and the Bible for everyone else. Communities sometimes got together and hired a teacher for their kids, but they only were taught the equivalent of some of elementary school. A lot of people were illiterate, and not all that long ago.
