Well somebody finally gets it!
Every school should be like mine: four hours a day, three time slots you can attend (morning at 8, afternoon at 12, evening at 5), online classes in case you miss a day, english and math direct instruction, bus stop close by, you can graduate early if you want, you can switch time slots if you need to, and they respect if you have a mental disorder/want to be addressed by a different name or by diff pronouns. You can listen to music, too, and everyone is super chill. Small classes where everyone minds their own business and gets their work done. That is how school should be.
I attended a similar alternative school to the one set-phasers-to-gay went to for only a short time. You went for 2-4 hours a day, 3 days a week, and if you felt like skipping to work in the garden, screw around in the woods, or play on the field, nobody stopped you or questioned you. They also supported everyone’s mental illnesses and helped people remember to take their meds via a chart. I didn’t encounter any trans/nonbinary peeps there but generally it was super open and accepting about all gender expressions and orientations. None of the girls there were totally straight except 2 who rarely showed up to class.
Hours were from (iirc) 12-ish to 2-ish for me and I only took two or three classes. I had 4-day weekends!
Most people there had children or were having children, and this is where I found the social worker (2 were on duty as well as a psychologist and counsellor) who helped me get an abortion. One teacher criticised a girl’s makeup for being too heavy and the entire class turned on her. We called teachers by first names and often watched Netflix/YouTube in class (Community or Shark Week were popular), went on “lunch runs” for everyone, or just hung out with computers and played Minecraft and stuff.
You were allowed to leave the school property at any time for any reason and they couldn’t stop you. Often there was nobody in the office and the actual principal was also the counsellor and was pretty chill, if forgetful. For example he told everyone one day that if anyone chooses to smoke weed/cigarettes, self-medicate, or drink, it’s their way of coping with things and we shouldn’t criticise them but instead try to help. The classes were one to maybe 10 people, maybe like 3 or 4 depending on the day. There were probably 50 kids total.
You could listen to music and pretty much do or not do your assignments. It was totally up for you. They had online classes but it wasn’t as set up as they’d liked it to be and were only getting it running when I left.
I left because I failed my classes and they felt I wasn’t able to move on, as well as the abortion closing a huge chapter of my life. But yeah.
