The education system is killing your creativity.

Albert Einstein once said, “Everybody’s a genius, but if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree It will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

School Turning millions of people into robots, do you find that fun? Do you realize how many kids relate to that fish swimming upstream in class, never finding their gifts thinking they are stupid, and believing they are useless? Well, the time has come; no more excuses I accuse the school of killing creativity, and individuality, and being intellectually abusive. It’s an ancient institution that has outlived its usage.

The classroom of today has never changed from 150 years ago, isn’t that a shame? It is literally more than a century, and nothing has changed yet you claim to prepare students for the future? But with evidence like that, I must ask: Do you prepare students for the future or the past? I did a background check on you And let the records show that you were made to train people to work in factories Which explains why you put students in straight rows, nice and neat Tell ’em, “Sit still, raise your hand if you want to speak” Give ’em a short break to eat, and for eight hours a day tell them what to think Oh, and make them compete to get an A letter which determines product quality, hence grade A of meat.

I get it; back then, times were different We all have a past, I myself am no Gandhi But today, we don’t need to make robot zombies. The world has progressed and now we need people who think creatively, innovatively critically, and independently, with the ability to connect. Every scientist will tell you that no two brains are the same and every parent with two or more children will confirm that claim so please explain why you treat students like cookie cutter frames or snapback hats giving them this “one size fits all” crap?

If a doctor prescribed the exact same medicine to all of his patients The results would be tragic so many people would get sick yet when it comes to school, this is exactly what happens. This educational malpractice where one teacher stands in front of 20 kids Each one having different strengths, different needs Different gifts, different dreams And you teach the same thing the same way? That’s horrific. It’s a shame I mean, teachers have the most important job on the planet, yet they’re underpaid? No wonder why so many students are shortchanged.

Let’s be honest, teachers should earn just as much as doctors because a doctor can do heart surgery and save the life of a kid but a great teacher can reach the heart of that kid and allow him to truly live. You see, teachers are heroes that often get blamed, but they’re not the problem. They work in a system with not many options or rights curriculums are created by policymakers, most of which have never taught a day in their life just obsessed with standardized tests. They think bubbling in a multiple-choice question will determine success that’s outlandish In fact, these tests are too crude to be used and should be abandoned. Don’t take my word for it Take Frederick J. Kelly, the man who invented standardized testing who said, and I quote, “These tests are too crude to be used and should be abandoned” Ladies and gentlemen of the jury if we continue down this road, the results will be lethal

I don’t have much faith in school, but I do have faith in people and if we can customize healthcare, cars, and Facebook pages then it is our duty to do the same for education to upgrade and change and do away with school spirit, ’cause that’s useless unless we are working to bring the spirit out of each and every student. That should be our task no more common core; instead, let’s reach the core of every heart in every class

Sure, math is important, but no more than art or dance, let’s give every gift an equal chance I know this sounds like a dream, but countries like Finland are doing impressive things they have shorter school days, teachers make a decent wage homework is non-existent. They focus on collaboration instead of competition but here’s the kicker, boys and girls their educational system outperforms every other country in the world; other places like Singapore are succeeding rapidly with schools like Montessori, and programs like Khan Academy There is no single solution, but let’s get moving Because while students may be 20% of our population, they are 100% of our future So let’s attend to their dreams, and there’s no telling what we can achieve This is a world in which I believe a world where fish are no longer forced to climb trees.
