A simpler solution to the problem could be removing the amount of work given to students, no matter how good you’re doing in a class you’ll always have to do the homework. The school has a one-size-fits-all mentality towards homework which doesn’t work due to some kids not having enough free time making them ending up hating the class due to losing sleep from doing homework.

The overall school focuses primarily on subjects for 12 years that overall don’t work out due to the fact that most of the subjects aren’t important enough for 12 years of training. They train kids to do addition in elementary even though they have calculators and the school hasn’t evolved along with the modern age as it should’ve.

School’s originated during the industrial revolution as a way to quickly train kids to become factory workers so they can serve society but schools haven’t changed since they promote a lifestyle in which a student needs to become a worker for a rich man and do the work for him rather than promoting the idea of starting a business or doing anything that could be in any way successful to their lives.

The definition of insanity is repeating the same task constantly, which school makes students do.

School is more than likely intentionally designed as a crude way for society to weed out the weaker students by making them kill themselves so only mentally tough students go into the real world. Although this may be very slightly more efficient for the overall benefit of society and the economy, this is not something schools should be doing. Mental health in students is rarely taken seriously in students.
