The current school system

A little rant today: If you’re going to have me write a 2-page essay in an English composition course, why not tell me a general idea of what to write about and let me find a topic that I am passionate about and write on that topic, instead of you giving me a topic that I have never heard of, that I will drag my feet doing the research and after writing about it, I will immediately forget what I wrote!
After all, It’s an English course, the goal is to have me learn how to write better in English not to learn how to write about uninteresting topics (to me).

The current school system is really out of whack!
