Today I am writing about whether or not the Public School system encourages students to admit that they lack knowledge on something. Or keep that a secret and pretend that they know about that specific thing. I don’t go to Public School anymore so I am going based off of memory and opinion here.
I think that on some things Public School wants you to admit that you don’t know something. I don’t think that this is a bad thing because you don’t want to misinform someone that is supposedly teaching you to succeed. I only say this because if you know something about that subject great you are probably ahead but if you don’t, you should admit it so that the teacher can explain that way you know the stuff you need to for that lesson.
I don’t think that you should keep it a secret if you don’t know something because if you pretend to know something and you say something irrelevant then you look stupid. That is probably something that most people would like to avoid but not all. If you don’t know something and you aren’t with a group that would be willing to explain and teach you should probably keep your mouth shut and avoid talking. This is just until you understand, develop an opinion, and learn everything you can about that subject so you don’t look retarded to others.
In conclusion, I think that the Public School system does want you to admit when you don’t know something. If you have other comments please leave a comment and I will get back to you. This is just my opinion not anyone else’s so you don’t have to agree with me.
Until next time, your friendly neighborhood Homeschooler…
