No I didn't like school . I hated the people I went to school with and was so glad when I finished school . It was hard for me my last year cause I was pregnant with my son but I stayed and finished out the year and am glad I did but would never want to go back to school again .

No I did not care for school when I was a child . I was shy and had a hard time learning . I did not feel I fit in with my classmates and almost quit a few times but stayed and did graduate and for this I am glad because it is so much harder to get anywhere in life without your grade 12 ( which is the highest grade where we live ) . It is good that you are planning on getting your GED because you really need this to get any sort of good paying job . It is hard for children to realize how important schooling is to them when they are young but your realize how important it was and still is as an adult and realize that without your schooling life is much harder and even much harder to get a job that pays half decent wages .

I didn't like school at all and i didn't like my teachers . I had a hard time learning and i was quiet and they kind of skipped me through all my grades which i did like but i was not as smart as the other kids . The only thing I liked was recess adn lunch time . I had anxiey problems and would get in trouble for not doing my homework when i didn't know how to do it .

I absolutely loved school. I love learning, I loved my teachers, taking tests was my favourite. The, in tenth grade, I got very sick and couldn't go anymore and the school kicked me out for low attendance, instead of helping me with alternative education, so I never got to finish high school.

Yes I did. Loved it. It was fun. I like to learn. Even now I'm always learning. I'm very curious so I want to know what's going on. I want to question. I seek answers. I'm always asking, why and why not, how. Remember life is a school too!

I hated school, and I was suspended dozens of times for skipping. I went to college just to take one course, and I was hooked. Now I have 8 Masters' and a Ph.D., and I've been a teacher of high school and college English for more than forty years! I guess there was a huge change in perspective.

Well, I still am in school. I don't really like school very much. I am okay with the work, it's not overly hard or more than I can handle, usually. I am kind of smart. But I most likely dreaded socializing. I am a lot better at it now, however. But that was the main reason I would want to stay home.

I loved going to school. Ever since I was a kid, I'd enjoy going to school, talking with classmates, reading books and increasing my knowledge. I had a lot of good friends while in school which is kinda the reason why I enjoyed going to school. College was a different story though. I hated the stress that college brought about but I managed and I survived.

No I didn't like school either and quit in grade eleven . Some day I am going to try and get my GED too but right now I am working and didn't need my grade 12 so I am not that worried about it yet . I didn't like the teachers cause they used to annoy me so I quit .
