A Quote by Stephenie Meyer on high school, college, and fun

Don't let anyone tell you that high school is supposed to be fun.  High school is to be endured.  College is fun.

A Quote by Jules Henry on education, self-reliance, high school, children, culture, excellence, authenticity, and trusting oneself

The function of high school, then, is not so much to communicate knowledge as to oblige children finally to accept the grading system as a measure of their inner excellence. And a function of the self-destructive process in American children is to make them willing to accept not their own, but a variety of other standards, like a grading system, for measuring themselves. It is thus apparent that they way American culture is now integrated it would fall apart if it did not engender feelings of inferiority and worthlessness.

A Quote by This American Life on vulnerable, vulnerability, authentic, authenticity, emotion, feeling, and high school

...being a good actor is the exact emotional opposite of what it takes to be a successful inmate. Rather than close off all feeling and look tough, you have to open your vulnerable self up, and withstand often cruel laughter as you try to find some authentic emotion within you. In this way, a Level IV, high-security prison is no different from high school.
