    I was homeschooled, so I dont know about K-12 in the US, but we have the core curriculum and a minor/major in college which i like and dislike. It is supposed to make us well rounded, but I feel someone who majored in the same discipline as me in another country (such as Mexico) has a higher education than me.

          Why are you against homeschooling, Loki?


          Answering the OP, our education is based on common curriculum, you know, maths, history, geography, physics, biology and stuff. Concerning schools it's terrible. Students have no respect to the teacher or to the school and teachers cannot do anything about it because of our constitution and of parents who try to protect their children. Also, many schools have turned into socialist basements, forming SJW.

          Concerning teachers, they (usually) don't have the necessary skills to teach because universities are more interested in spreading marxism than forming good teachers. Also teachers suffer in the class because of disrespectful students, work overload and low income.

          There's one interesting thing I see in American movies. It seems like they can choose the classes they want to attend. Here we cannot do so, I can't even imagine how that works. We have a curriculum, in both schools and universities, and we must follow it rigorously.

          Still comparing with American schools in movies (because I don't know whether it's real, if there's anyone here who lives and studies in USA, please confirm this), with few exceptions, we don't have drama classes, os chess classes, or music classes in public school. Many private schools don't have that too.

          Here's Brazil in PISA:

          This is video of a student beating a teacher:

          Another one:

          The videos are to show the lack of respect of students and the lack of authority of teachers.

          Here's an interesting article about why our education is so terrible. It's about universities, but can be applied to schools to:

          Talking about my experience in school, I can say that I learned very few useful things, like basic math. Every other things I know, like languages, history, geography, geopolitics, music, arts, everything I got on internet, thanks God internet exists! I didn't have a Geography teacher at high school. I still don't know how to find logarithms. I know nothing about chemistry, I don't even know how I could get good grades in this subject!! English classes were all about the verb to be. Portuguese classes were all about teaching archaisms that nobody uses! There were a plenty of useless things like sociology and bhaskara and dadaism. To be honest, I know people who graduated from high school and cannot interpret a simple text. It is, functional illiteracy.

          To sum up, our education is pretty f*cked up

            Homeschooling seems a bit ant i social to me. Plus, I had such a stupid religious curriculum in which a was taught that "God gave the Greeks (or Egyptians) geometry." WTF??
