    I have given up, nothing I do in school is good enough for my teachers. Every time I get a good grade there is no "well done" or "Excellent", instead I am to settle with a "at least you tried". I am sick of how my teachers belittle us also, they spend so much time telling us that we don't know what life problems are that we have it easy but we will know what life problems are if we don't get taught anything.

    My school is all condiments no food... at least I think that is the saying. They think that by simply making out appearance better that it will miraculously teach us all of our triple science work but no I'm pretty sure that is not how it works. My school is a crack in the wall and instead of filling in the hole, they put a poster over it because forgetting about it is easier then fixing the problem. I find it to simply be low level corruption, they flaunt the idea that we are 'a great school with outstanding features' but when it comes to the Ofsted showings, they simply hide everything just like the crack in the wall, they cover it up instead of fixing it. Its almost comical that the school can afford to spend, what I have been told, is £10000 on security cameras yet they cant even afford a textbook. Classic ***** ****** really, they think that everything is getting better but I have had to teach myself all of my science work because my teachers are about as useful as a blunt pencil.

    I could honestly go on and on about the problems with my school but I have come to the conclusion that moving to mexico and owning a casadia restaurant is a better use of my time, at least then I will not just cover up the crack in the wall, I will actually fill it in.
