The only reason being educated is seen as "not cool" is because a lot of people are stupid, and therefore jealous.
God, I like that reason.
Great Success!

Because teenagers wants to rebel, and because teachers are a kind of authority, kids wants to rebel against them by showing their dislike, ie not doing their homework, talking back etc.

Not saying all teenagers wants to rebel against it. Tbh, I'm quite stubborn and I prefer to learn on my own, but I do embrace the school and the things I learn there. I can't wait to get out of this school, to get on to the next and learn what I'm really interested in. I'm the age of a High School student, but we don't have elementory school, Junior High and High Schools, we have one school for the ages 5 (the year of the 6th year of age, though.) to 15/16 (year of 16th year of age), after then you can choose a bunch of seperated educations, with much more competent teachers who usually would teach only one subject and really go into depth with it.
