Because public high school has a very thin line of best fit, and most students aren’t on it.

School caters to the ideal student that works hard and believes in themselves and challenges themselves but also knows their limits! But not all people are like that. People tick in different ways, and people respond to pressure and competition differently.
I think schools expect students to have a blissful home life. But they disregard parental pressure. Parents might pressure their kids to do what the parents want. “Eat bitter, taste sweet,” huh? Get great grades to go to a great college to have a great life. “The hardships are only momentary,” but the negative effects may last a lif

I liked playing soccer for my school but funding is so low with Boone County Schools that most of the time, we did not have enough money to take a bus to our away games, so parents had to drive us. That was difficult because both of my parents had to work. I wish our school district would secure additional funding so we could have some of the things that our neighboring county schools have. It's too late for me to enjoy them because I graduate this year but maybe my little brother could if they did. He is in sixth grade. Another example of the lack of funding for our schools is the fact that we only have enough text books for one copy that has to stay in the classroom. If I needed to take a book home to study, I had to take pictures of the pages with my cell phone. We are not allowed to take home our textbooks. It's sad and it's embarrassing to tell others how our school system operates.
My experience with Boone County Schools has been interesting. High school is the only place where I think my experience has changed. It went from "everything's alright," to "wow, guess it's life." The atmosphere has changed, it almost seems like everyone just focusing on the bare minimum. I understand we've been dealing with money issues, but it almost seems like we're breaking the bank on everything. The teachers and staff are all doing their best, and you can sense it. I'd send my kid to these schools just for the fact that all the teachers are kind, and make sure that they do their best to help and guide you.
