Guys can we get this to 1500? 

high school kids only have 10 hours of school related work a day in america? wow what a relaxing life, come to asia where its at least 15 hours on a good day (for PRIMARY SCHOOL KIDS) when kids are finally done with their homework AND hours of after school tutorings

^^^ DO NOT NEGATE THE CORE ISSUE. The point here is that Children work longer days than most adults and are expected to remain on the straight and narrow. This system no matter how long it is DOES NOT WORK. Not only this but they continue to make it longer and longer in America to “keep up” with countries like Asia. There isn’t any leisure time just fucking procastination and avoidance. The work is for animals cirlces and circles of the same problems it’s a form of control. Your country doesn’t give a damn about your education they want control.

I’m just sick of y’all Americans always acting like you have things the WORST in the world. I see this education shit on my dash everyday and unless its about the actual fees of college, none of it is valid arguments. ut you know, it’s always about Americans, everything is about Americans lmfao. 

First off it’s not a “country” I’m talking about, I’m from Africa AND Asia and it’s more or less the same regarding education on both continents, both the hugest continents in the world, not countries. 

It’s not about control AT ALL I don’t know where you got that from lmfao. I actually studied sociology of education and we looked into why these changes are happening, AND I’m currently a teacher so I feel as though I’m probably more in the know about these issue than you are. The reason why we HAVE to work longer as students than our parents did is because school is becoming more important as a prerequisite to aNYTHING and almost EVERYTHINg in life.

More parents send their kids to school than in the past -> more competition between students to succeed -> you have to work harder and longer. That’s literally all it is in the simplest of terms. No one just graduates primary school and then goes to work on their parents farm or some crap anymore; to succeed in modern society you need skills that can take you into a higher paying job, more of our peers are having the same level of education so if you want a better life chance you literally have go further. If you’re finding it too stressful then, well, that’s up to you to ignore education and not be able to keep up with the rest,well education is only like 1/4th of your life really so if you waste it away complaining on then you’re gonna spend 3/4 of your life watching your friends who worked hard live great lives while no one hires you for just having a high school education .

That’s why kids here get put into so many extra tutoring and have to work so much harder, it over works them (us since I went through that) but it’s the only way to keep up with what other families are doing nowadays.

I’m just saying if you have the chance that many kids don’t have to actually go to school in the first place, you’re an idiot to sit there complaining about it, especially if it’s decent studying hours compared to most of the world (which Africa & Asia ARE most of the world as most people choose to ignore). 

And even then, some kids like in my home country do the same long hours of school and have to go back home and do all sorts of farming jobs and get water from the well and collect firewood and all this shit kids should not be doing but they have to to actually survive. Yet for most of y’all Americans who complain daily about the ~stress of education~ you literally have the opportunity and the LUXURY to ONLY focus on your education (which is also relatively easier and a less strenuous system than Asian education but that’s another story), and succeed. But nah… 

Men, I would like to give this opportunity to extend your formal invitation. Gender equality is your issue, too. To date, I’ve seen my father’s role as a parent being valued less by society. I’ve seen young men suffering from illness, unable to ask for help for fear it will make them less of a man. I’ve seen men fragile and insecure by what constitutes male success. Men don’t have the benefits of equality, either. We don’t want to talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that they are. When they are free, things will change for women as a natural consequence. If men don’t have to be aggressive, women won’t be compelled to be submissive. If men don’t need to control, women won’t have to be controlled. Both men and women should feel free to be strong. It is time that we all see gender as a spectrum instead of two sets of opposing ideals. We should stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by who we are. We can all be freer and this is what HeForShe is about. It’s about freedom. I want men to take up this mantle so their daughters, sisters and mothers can be free from prejudice but also so their sons have permission to be vulnerable and human, too and in doing so, be a more true and complete version of themselves - Emma Watson for HeForShe UN campaign
