    I'm curious, I kind of want a spot in a video. Is this link how to sign up for a spot in a video? Also, if one were accepted for a video. Would we pay to get to the location where these are filmed? And how do we choose what video we are in?

    "grades define your intelligence" Bro, I get straight A's in school, but ask me to not lose my books and to not forget eating lunch, and I'll do exactly the opposite. People are intelligent in different ways.

    Without even watching this... I will say this.. Go the straight A route. I've been called a millennial and I've been called a boomer, in either case go the straight A route. I went the route of not giving a damn my freshman through junior year and my senior year I realized that I should have cared. It wasn't that I couldn't it was I didn't care. I skirted by my first 3 years in high school and then in my senior year I was A/B (could have been straight A, again at that point not caring). Biggest thing for me, my junior year, failing English but getting a perfect score on the standardized writing test and an advanced score on my English test. Yeah I didn't do the work even though I knew it and could have aced it. WTF was I thinking? I've been through many educational and test taking things since then, and each time its can you help us study, no I just listen and know, I mean I went through that with my dad (running a family business and needing to pass this test) when he studied for weeks and barely passed and I just listened that day and had the highest grade in the whole class. Before that firefighting, help me pass this test, you got the highest score in the class... Wish I could help you but I simply took notes and then glanced over them, then proceeded to get the highest score. Just realized this is coming from my daughters account.

    "My teacher was racist" are you serious? Plenty of my teachers didnt like me, and I really really REALLY doubt that it was because I'm mixed, I think a student pulling the race card and saying "it's cuz she's racist" is way more likely than someone who chose to teach other people's children being racist.

    Education is modelled in the interests of the industrial age and in the image of it - Ken robinson. All day we do nothing but follow instructions sit down, turn to page 53, stop talking etc, at school you are rewarded for doing what you are told do. These are industrial age values which were important for factory workers since their succes depended on following instructions and doing exactly what they were told, in the modern world values people who can be creative, communicate their ideas and collaborate with others. But we don't get a chance to develop those skills in a system based on industrial age values.

    The thing about grades is that you're only learning what the school system is teaching you. You aren't necessarily "smarter" for having good grades when its really just a matter of memory and information retention. The basics like language, mathematics and some understanding of science (how & why chemicals react they way they do, physics, etc) are all that actually matter coming out of high school. Anything beyond that should be towards achieving a higher education in college or your own self-interests.

    The reason I think I'm not doing good at some subjects mostly English is because of group work and group talks, I find it hard to talk in groups and stuff like that and I especially hate it when you have to read Infront of the class because I get nervous then get words wrong when I would usually get them right.

    It's hard to hear people lying to each other. You fail your test, that is what it is. You need to work harder. If you can't do that, sorry, you're gonna fail. They know that and even so keep up lying and diminish the merit of the other kids who did what they didn't: work their ass off!

    I was literally told by my principal and every teacher that my capabilities r so far beyond my grades. My principal said that if I gave my %100 it's possible for me to get a $25,000-$30,000 scholarship. I'm literally passing only 3 classes lmao and I heavily disagreed when they asked if they thought grades determine my intellect💀

    I usually have B- or C+ as my lowest grades. I eventually bring them up a bit, but it hurts. I feel like a failure, like I can't do anything. I worry about how I'll fail high school in my future, and I'm only 12 in 7th grade. I shouldn't worry, but I do.

I would never try but i would pass so i know im smart, i just dont care for whats being thought. Now in 6th grade history, i remember every word that man said. He was an amazing teacher, so amazing that i would be disappointed when we did a project in class instead of writing notes. Mr. Hontz, youre amazing my guy.

    Why focus more on extra curricular activities instead of primary classes? “But, it’s my fault. It’s nobody else’s fault. I’m putting myself in a position where I’m flunking my classes.” So, why doesn’t she change that? She knows what she’s doing wrong.

    Easy common ground.. Straight A studenta - usually, if they open their worldview - do understand "flunking" students and then recognise that school level isn't a definitive measure of how smart people are or can be. And vice versa

    The thing about being a straight A/ almost a straight A student is never having freedom. When my parents want to go to the beach, dinner, or any family outings at night or on the weekends and I constantly have to say no because of school work they not only get annoyed but I really fear that I am losing time with them. Friends don’t mean much to me because they are usually temporary but sacrificing time with family is what’s heartbreaking. I often say that when you’re young you have two options: to dedicate yourself to academics and go to a good college to try and secure a future or enjoy your youth, securing the here and the now. It’s one or the other and it’s nearly impossible to do both. I’ve decided on this two years ago and I’m a senior in high school. Being a teenager is nothing more than an age group I’m almost done with. It was never an experience or a time to remember.
