Generally speaking everybody wants to learn. Some even want to study the whole life that they may have. There are others who even spend unimaginable amount to acquire knowledge that satisfies their need of wisdom. A strong phrase which goes like this “Knowledge is powerful than money”. I do believe in that phrase, I can’t remember who said it but to think about he is right. Knowledge is more powerful in a simple sense. Yes you have money, but can you express the world that you have? I mean can you define your world through knowledge. Knowledge also defines an individual, always remember that. If you don’t have money but you have billions of knowledge that you may always use to earn. You may be nothing today but with that knowledge tomorrow you can be in top of the world. Also we have a saying that “Education is the key to success.” And it always true with proper perseverance, competence to do so and certainly success will always be with you. Nothing is impossible if you put mind it to it or you have the will do so. But not all are like those I describe, there are people who want to learn but they don’t. They are common in educational phase of one person specifically students. I myself once said “I hate schools!” worst cases I pray that the government would cancel the whole week for cancellation of classes. Such things that I regret today. So here are the reasons why some students hate school”

Here are the reasons:

1. Waking in the morning.

We all know that usually classes starts as early as 7 a.m. so a student would wake around 5.30 to 6.00 early in the morning. Normally some would own alarm clocks to wake themselves. But some don’t and their moms should scream as early as that to wake them up. And before waking up the situation is this. 5.30 has come the alarm rung as loud as it can and some would say “Damn!, 5 minutes more then I’m up” after 5 minutes “Last 40 seconds” after 40 seconds mom: “Wake up its 6.30!” Just imagine how it goes like that. But I’m pretty sure some of you experience this situation to start your day. While for those who needs to be wake by their moms would go like this “Hey sweetheart wake up! Classes start at 7:00!” with no response she would try again “Honey wake up common sleepy head!” then the response would be “ OK mom just sec” until some mom would pull their child off to bed, occasionally. According to studies, early waking truly is the hardest way to wake a person. Due to the state of mind of an individual to be at rest mode for hours that causes more difficulty to wake up. Another factor is that, most mornings are cold and sometimes freezing (here in the Philippines) and I myself, A college student find it hard to wake how about those even younger than me right?

2. Assignments, Quizzes, and Exams.

We all know most of our learning mothers or fathers in school (teachers) are commonly gave their students home works for them to study with and comprehend previous and learn the next topic that will be discuss. But in today’s generation, Dude I bet every household owns a computer. Social networks, game’s, and other internet related factors that affect the students’ academic performance. According to a high school studies about those factors, they conducted a research with its respective respondents who are specifically second year high schools students wherein 80% of the representation of the whole population shows that social networks, gaming and other internet related affects their study habit. Therefore, if more of our students including myself are engage in these types of computer related activity we are prone to hating assignments since it would cause disturbance in whatever plan we want to do after school. Especially for those who don’t own themselves a responsible time management but generally some only. Since assignment won’t be done due to those reasons, quizzes and exams certainly get lower. Even though students are obliged to study for their upcoming evaluation about their mental status and comprehensions about their subjects their response would not be as quite expected. What happen is that, the allocation of time usually gets mess up due to distractions of those mentioned reasons, so certainly most of us students hate school. I would repeat again and again saying some only.

3. Recitation

Since from the above discussion, paper works or review related activities are being sabotage with all these wonderful type of entertainment of other recreational staff that affects an individual’s academic performance. Another reason for the hatred towards school is the recitation. Not all students are blessed with great confidence in speaking in front of the class. To prove, during my high school days some of my classmate choose to be absent during the class just to get away the said recitation. Especially for those teachers that requires almost perfected answer well not all of course. Moreover, there are students who scared of being embarrass in front of the class if he/she can’t answer the question. Reasons that everybody can relate that give rise to hate school.

4. Terror teachers and some even call them “The evil teachers”.

In every part of an individual’s educational phase its normal for us to meet somebody at school that teaches a different and unique manner of teaching. Those are teachers who show a negative type of approach. Those negative approaches pertain to strict and non-joking session. Where every move must be in accordance to his/her rules. With these kinds of teachers students get frightened to attend class. Well, if you are scared will you still go to class? I myself got freak out in one of my teachers that show these types of teaching strategy wherein, I did not meet his expectation and standards I got words not just words but mean words that attacks me inside. To think about, according to educational authority it must be punished if a teacher acts like that. But I thought of myself, “He was just trying to correct my mistaken decision” so I therefore accept all those painful words and instead use it as my motivation.

5. Bullying

Today, Bullying has come in different form. Some are verbal, written, cyber and other ways that hurts another’s feeling. Here in my country bullying were not that intense as what I saw and read about in other country. Wherein this was included in my list due to material number of students who don’t attend class just to avoid those particular person that threaten their individuality that causes for them to conclude hatred towards school. Some cause of bullying are just for fun, insecurities, personal problem and other reasons for a person to find ways to express the pain or hatred through others which are common in today’s life.
