What’s wrong with the education system?

I really think the education system is messed up, today.

Students are now determined how smart they are, according to their grades. Schools are piling up more homework on the students, in the hope that it will help them do well in school. Parents are forced to comply with this type of thinking, and restrict their children from their other activities, making them focus more on school. I really think is wrong.

I say this, because I am a student myself. I see how my friends are not allowed to fun, because their parents make them study more and more, even when there are no exams. Teachers are forced with more portion to teach, every year, and are forced to give us more homework every week. This all surrounds me, and the fact that it is actually going to get worse, scares me.

There needs to be a change. I’ve gone through 12 years of schooling already so if there is a change, it will be pretty much pointless in my situation. I want this change not for me, but for the others who are going to experience the education system just like me.
