I hated school.
I started early, and I combined the 11 and 12 grades, so that I could finish in three years. But I flat out hated school. And I really didn't need to be there. I didn't want to be there. In my last here I had English 3 1st period, Accounting 2 2nd period, English 4 3rd period, History 4th period, then Chemistry, lunch, Government, English Aide for the English 3 teacher, and Pre-Calc and Trig 8th period.
Because I had to babysit for my little brother and sister after school, I could not sit detentions, so If I was late, three times, I would get 1/2 day in school suspension, until they were PO'd enough to give me 3 days in-school suspension. If I missed my first 2 classes I was counted 1/2 day absent and nothing would happen to me. I only missed 2 full days in my senior year, because I was always there by History, 4th period. My final record said late: 51 days and absent 27 times. I figure I missed English 3 and Accounting 2 close to 100 days and I aced those classes. That's nuts. If I had a test or an essay due in English three I would be there all day. If I had a test in Accounting, I would get there in time to take that. If I had a test or essay due in English 4 I would get there by 9:30.
The thing about in-school suspension, was that that didn't bother me at all. I hated the kids, and the crap about school. Sitting in the tank and reading a book was easy. So you have a kid that really doesn't want to be there. So you suspend them. Yay! Now I don't need to be there. works for me.
The thing was, my grades were good, I was never a behavior problem, and they pretty much left me alone. My mom would call up in the morning and ask if I was going to school today. I would say, maybe later. And she would go to work.
Suspending a high school student for attendance just never made sense to me at all.
Suspending first graders is ridiculous. Where are people's brains?
