I Wish they Failed Me As a high schooler, In the essay “In praise of the F word,” Mary Sherry talks about the problems she thinks our education system has.
Mary Sherry’s essay entitled “In praise of the F word” discusses the reality within the ways of passing students in school. Sherry points out that the students could obtain their diploma, even if they do not know how to write or read. According to her research, students think that they are being cheated by their academic environment because they graduated even if they are not really prepared to face the next phase of their lifetime especially those who are high school graduates. That is why the employers could not hire these students and they remain jobless despite of the fact that they already pass their schooling. Education is a tool for each one of us to face the challenges of the society. If we are not educated well, we will lose the game of life. Sherry’s point is very important to understand the struggle and adversities of students after they graduated in high school because in reality, they feel unworthy of the diploma they received.
