This city is afraid of me. I have seen its true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout 'Save us!'... and Gon's Balls will whisper 'First... comes... rock!' Hah!  Made you stare at Naruto's Marshmallow!  Pushing the logo off-center to drive TheOcean insane.

From what I hear about public education in the news, it seems that everything is going to hell. Classes are being dumbed down so that everyone passes, and people are becoming increasingly sensitive to anything that can be construed as violent behavior.
Is security really that bad? Our school had just installed some new cameras a year or two before I graduated, but that was it. How long has it been since you were in school?

I teach a lab course at the University I attend and the no sandal rule is for your safety. Sandals offer no protection against spilled chemicals or broken glass, so they are not allowed in the laboratory. If you don't have a science class with a lab component, then I don't know why you wouldn't be able to wear them, though.

I do not do science. It is too scientific for me. They just won't let me have flip flops because they are supposedly dangerous and will make me trip on the stairs. If I tripped on the stairs when I wore flip flops I would never have to walk down the stairs. I would just fall. This is not the case though so it is stupid. The school system is just abusing it's power just cause it can. It disgusts me.

No I mean what you said was hilarious. Flip-flops can sometimes be a hazard. I just thought the way you said it was funny sorry :P

I am glad to provide humor but I am quite serious about this. Flip flops are not a hazard on stairs. They do not kill people but high heels kill people and those are still allowed at school. It makes no sense.

My school may be starting a YuGiOh club next year. We kind of took a vote, and I'm VP of the group.

Nice! I don't think anyone plays the game at my school. I do have a group of friends who are yu-gi-oh/YGOTAS fans

There's a bunch of people that still play it now. I remember when it was popular when I was in first grade. Although I only actually started playing the game about last winter, in first grade I was afriad to tell anyone i was a YuGiOh fan at the time. I was the only girl that liked it, so I was afraid people would laugh at me. But no it doesn't matter, everyone knows I'm an otaku.

Yeah I was a big fan of it when it came out too, and I was given strange looks by some of the boys being a girl who played duel monsters. Although none of us were old enough to actually understand the rules so we just played a much simpler version and collected the cards.

I didn't even tell my parents. I just watched it on Saturday morning when they weren't looking. LOL! I just didn't want people to know I liked a "boy's show". I mean sure i also watched Jimmy Neutron, but at least some girls in my class liked that show. (sigh) That's first grade for ya.

I don't remember being caught up in what other thought about me... I was a huge tom-boy, and I guess I still am. I was a fan of a lot of "boy" shows and I was also obsessed with anything and everything that involved dinosaurs.

I've seen and heard the stories from public school. I'm SO glad I went to a Christian private school since kindergarten(I'm a Senior in highschool now) xD Only thing else I need is an anime club.

I'm not that into religion so I don't think I'd enjoy a Christian private school. That's cool that you enjoy it. Public school hasn't proved to be too bad for me though :)

Most people who've moved from a public school to our school say they love it so much because, generally, most everyone doesn't bully, and most everyone is Christian so almost everybody is extremely kind and friendly. We love new people too xD
I also love how the environment is so nice. The Christian teachers will be your best friend if you asked them to. I've seen people come to them after classes and they'd be willing to sit with them and listen to them talk or cry about your problems. And most of the students, being Christian and all, are super friendly and nice to everyone. And it's in no way an austere school. People goof off in class, tell funny jokes, and have a great time.

I've heard from students in public schools about how people are always making out in the hallways, swearing left and right, ditching classes and skipping school, and of course the problem that I hear all the time, bullying. ^^;

But these are all just my experiences c:

I could say the same thing about the public school I go to. I don't think the experience is influenced greatly by the atmosphere, but rather the people you choose to surround yourself with. Christian or not, I have found awesome people as well as teachers, at my school! :)

I've been to public schools in two different countries. The schools I went to in America were, except for the one I went to for the last few months of first grade, fairly painless. My grades were terrible and some of the teachers were real jerks, but it was painless. In the first school I went to in Holland, it was pretty terrible, and I got picked on a lot for being foreign. My current school is a lot better though, and the system is more centered around the student's need than the American schooling system (in my experience).

Flip-flops are less secure than normal shoes and as such, much more likely to see you involved in an accident. You are under the loco-parentis of your school, which means they have a massive obligation towards your general well-being and safety; as a public organisation, that obligation comes with the risk of your actual parents suing them out of existence should they fail in those duties. They are, therefore, rather risk-adverse and quite understandably so, if I do say so myself. Flip-flops are a risk, ergo, not to be worn on school property.

I went to a Christian school; it was full of hateful, angry, drug-taking bullies, along with many generally undesirable people, so I think religion has little to do with it.

It depends on the people who run the school and the people who work there and the kinds of parents that the students have, as well as what the students can get away with. The Christian school that I went to from the time I was 8 until I was 14 was a good environment. My high school, though, was very much like a public high school, except that people didn't steal tour backpack if you left it in the hallway, and the school itself tended towards encouraging people to be better people and better Catholics - but there was definitely still lots of drinking, sex, wild parties, etc etc. My Catholic high school had mostly decent people, but I can't credit that to the fact that it's because the majority of them are Catholic. The parents tend to care more about their school experience because the city that the school is located in has those types of parents everywhere. The public schools in that area are much much much better than, say, Detroit Public Schools. Not even going to get into that.

I do know of Christian schools full of nasty people and situations, and not just a half good half bad situation.

The point I think is that Shizuoka goes to a school where the teachers care about students' well-being, as do the parents. Any school that has that kind of environment, Christian or not, at least has the potential of being a great school. There are public schools like that - but there are also public schools that don't give a shit. And there are Christian schools that don't give a shit, as well.

Wow. It doesn't sound like a Christian school at all. Sadly, things like that do happen, and I agree with MrsSallyBakura that it depends on the people who run it. It just goes to show you that the administrators of that Christian school probably aren't really Christians.

Luckily for me, my Christian school administrators are all very good Christian people, and my entire life has been cushy and nice xD
