School is not a favorite place for everyone. I personally didn’t like school. But the reasons for not liking school varies from kid to kid. Some are serious and some are not so worrying. I hate school because there is a lot of work to do at school but my friend hates school because he has to get up early in the morning. These are the minor reasons why students hate school but School is a fundamental part of every person’s life. So we should avoid these issues instead of we love our School.
Why I Hate School- Reasons
Today we will highlight the reasons why kids hate school driven from kids’ own stories.
Early In The Morning
Kids find it difficult to get up early in the morning and get ready to go to school. They feel sleepy, especially in the first period. This issue is mainly faced by the kids aging between 6 to 10 years of age.
A kid said that “I don’t like school because you have to get up early in the morning. If you want to sleep in class after your work is done (done with one period) the teacher doesn’t let you sleep. The teacher asks to get up and to wash my face so I may not feel sleepy. Why can’t she just let me sleep for some minutes?”
Punishment On Being Late
Getting punished for getting late is something that kids really don’t like especially when they were not the reason behind being late.
Mostly when the kids reach school late even 1 or 2 minutes, it’s not their fault.
Sometimes it’s because of traffic or school bus, or your father/mother left home late to drop you off. But when it comes to punishment then kids are the victims.
A kid said “I don’t like it when I get punished for being late even though it wasn’t my mistake.
My mom got a bit late because of traffic and we reached school 2 minutes late.
But the school administration doesn’t realize this and make me stand for 20 minutes in the assembly hall. I hate school for this reason.”
Lots Of Homework
Being in school doesn’t mean studying in the classroom only but you get a lot of homework as well.
Homework for each subject. Which makes children run away from studies. Because after studying at school they don’t want to waste their playtime in studying.
A student said “We study in the school for around 6 to 7 hours and still get lots of homework to do.
Lots of homework for each subject. Because of which the time left for playing remains very little. That’s why I hate to study as well as going to school”
There are many rules in the school that are to be followed by students as well as by teachers.
Students have this complaint that we get punished when we break rules. Even if we are suspected to break any rules we get into the list.
But teachers are not being punished for breaking any of the rules.
Now obviously it shows that kids have no idea that teachers also get punished for breaking the rules of school by getting their salary cuts or by getting a warning letter (in some schools) but kids have their own complaint regarding this matter.
A kid said “I find it unfair that we get punished for being late or being absent but teachers are never seen standing in the assembly hall for being late. It is not fair to the students.”
Getting Caught While Talking
Many students are trouble makers for the other students as well. They make noise in the class and the teacher punishes them all.
Or the student next to you is creating noise and the teacher asks you to stand up as a punishment.
A student said “It has happened to me twice that the student sitting next to me was being naughty during the lecture and the teacher thought it was me. She punished me and didn’t even listen to me that I was not the one being noisy. I don’t like to go to school. No one listens to me”
Food’s Not Allowed In The Classroom
Food is not allowed in the classroom. This complaint is heard by the students aged 6 to 8 as they are young and get hungry quickly.
A student said “Once I was hungry and wanted to eat the lunch that my mother made for me.
The break was still one period away so I took out my lunch and tried to eat it silently.
Upon knowing this the teacher got angry and asked me to wait for the break. This made me heartbroken. I don’t like school and its rules.”
Grades Matter The Most
In school, you are being liked or disliked because of your grades. If your grades are high everyone in the class would like you including the teacher. And if your grades are low then no one will value your opinion won’t like you much.
A student said “My grades are not so good. I am not the topper of my class. I get average grades sometimes below average as well.
No one likes me in class. No one wants to talk to me. Teachers always insult me for getting poor grades.
I am good at drawing and once I wanted to take part in drawing competition held in school.
Inter-session competition. I wanted to give my name from my class but my teacher rejected me because she thought I am not good at studies so I must not be good at drawing as well.
The topper from our class got selected to participate. Even though her drawing was just average.”
The Teacher Is Never On Leave
The biggest complaint that a school going kid is that teacher is never on a leave. Even when you all pray hard for your teacher to get absent. She shows up and just being strict as always. Poor kids do not know that the salary is being deducted if the teacher goes on leave.
A student said “I don’t like school because my teachers are never absent. No matter if she is sick or having a headache, she will come to school and teach us. We sometimes want to enjoy and celebrate the happiness of the teacher being on leave.”
The Teacher Isn’t Appreciative
Some teachers would never appreciate your effort instead make fun of you.
Many students get to shy and scared of answering or raising their hands because the teacher insults them.
A teacher is the one who makes or breaks a student’s personality.
A little act of appreciation and appraisal can do wonders in making up the personality of a student.
A student said “Once during lecture my teacher asked us all a question related to the topic. I raised my hand to answer she chose me to answer. Unfortunately, my answer was wrong.
She insulted me so bad that it made my eyes wet. That incident shattered all my confidence and I think I will never forget that incident.”

Toppers Making Fun Of ME
The toppers in the class make a lobby and roam around everywhere as they are the queens.
They take over the classroom when the teacher is not around and try to rule over.
They decide with whom to talk and whom to ignore. When they become the monitor of class they become bossy and make fun of students who are not high graders.
A kid said “I hate school because the monitor of class or the toppers make fun of us (Low graders) and taunts us whenever they get a chance.
They are rude and never share their homework unless the teacher asks them.
Also, They don’t value us or our opinion in any of the class decisions. They think of themselves as goddesses.”
A Lot Of Tests And Exams
Students don’t like school because of too many tests and exams. Exams and tests make the students hate studies and school.
As long as it’s just the lectures, it’s fine.
A student said “I don’t like tests and exams. Every 2 weeks the tests are being held at school and after some months the exams occur.
We don’t get time to enjoy our lives. Don’t we have anything else to do in life than to keep on studying all the time?”
Students mainly hate school, not because of the school itself but what happens to them while they are at school.
The school-going age of children is very fragile. We as teachers and parents are responsible for making or breaking their character. So always chose your words and actions keeping the kids in your mind.
Have a nice day!
