    In schools they learn to be civilized.
    A kids dream these days has nothing to do with school or learning but to sit in front of tv or play pc games. So they can be taught how to climb a tree in school...after school its up to them

  • Robyn Wilson

    This literally moved me to tears. Back in High school I did art class. And I remember the overload of work I had from my other classes and how it practically drowned the only class I did that focused on self expression and creativity. I remember literally crying over what little time I had for art, by the time my math and my science lessons had finished and their homework was done, I found myself unable to draw or paint, found that the thing I loved with all my heart seemed foreign to me after an eternity of things that had answers as art has no answer, it's not a question to begin with. I was lost and confused, I loved art, yet I couldn't see art as the expressive language it is, and only saw it as a question.
    Just before graduating, I did some tours of my ideal colleges. And even though art was my passion, I looked at the previous students' work on the walls and panicked. They were so good. And if been taught for YEARS that everything in education has a bar you must reach or you fail. I saw their work and I forgot that art was subjective and didn't have standards to be met, that I didn't have to do this or that exact thing to get that A.
    After thinking strongly on who I was and what I could do, I found that the best answer to my problems was to do a full course on filmmaking. Because I would have to learn from scratch how to do everything and I could actually start over. And two years on, having learned everything I know now on film and done so in an environment that DOESN'T tell me I have to wear this uniform, write this down and do this thing in one exact way and rather in a place that tells me I can wear what I want, dye my hair, wear makeup and make projects that reflect ME as a person, I am so fucking happy.
    Thank you so much for expressing how I feel in such a clear and moving way. Bless you. ❤

    True i have add and am creative... But even in art school i didnt feel free to express myself to my full potential. Because school is just 7projects at the same time all with the same day deadline. It's cruel and kills your creativity. And thats just what the school system is all about graden nothing that fitts a students needs. I felt useless and even after school i hated being creative. I didnt believe in myself anymore.

    Yep Im homeschooling too because I can customize my childrens education and give them freedom from peer pressure on the daily. and to give them more time to tap into their own gifts.
    but Im also studying to become a teacher so I can help other kids. I dont know the answers to how to education the nation but I want to help.

    I hate schools, I get good grades but it is hell, I am so bored. Not what you usually hear. I have severe anxiety and I have medical problems that make it so I can't do must things athletic besides swimming. But I am forced to stand up infront of the class until I have a panic attack or I am made to do a workout I can't do until I break down from pain because I try so hard. How can kids succeed like that, when someone who isn't given help they fall and don't even have a chance to learn how to get up. I can't get up, I glide through as much as I can with sleepless nights that are filled with tears, and mornings drinking any caffine I can to be able to stay awake long enough to not get a detention. Honestly school is messed up and needs to be fixed.

    Sir education is only money it teaches us how to give xams get job and earn money nothing else sir something is what we can do mainly in our education system we can have 2 percent of studies with books else case study and practicals videos creative videos
    Like i m in class 10 i m a indian in our class 10 we have taught in physics that when we move a magnet between a insulated wire the current is induced this is all about theory they never give the practicals and take exams we got nothing to learn only theory nothing else we don't know how it is induced how it works nothing everything is theory nothing else and especially in our Indian education system please do something for our future we are no more creative we are stopped to think more and more when we go to a teacher he or she says first you complete class 10 then you will got to know about it and then it never comes and like this we never go to teacher because we know teachers going to send back us to the class nothing else

    Prince Ea I am so inspired by you. As a high schooler, I go to school, sit through 2 boring classes, get an hour to eat lunch, sit through 2 more boring classes, get 5 hours of homework, and then go to bed to do it all over. I have been getting even more due to exams coming up. I will watch this every day until my exams are done. Thank you so much and continue to inspire people all over the earth.

    The part when he says teachers are not the problem i dont fully agree with because sometimes they are. Some teachers are just so lazy they just give you tests and textbook work and dont teach you. I had a class like that and i usually get 80's and 90's in my classes but i got a solid 60 and to some people that might be alot but thats a failure to me. In that class litterally half the people failed and most of these kids never failed a class and now they are down a credit just because there was a bad teacher that didnt teach or help with the work. Its not fair.

    While watching this I cried, I realized that school is taking my freedom, my will to think in my own way, I realized I'm wasting my life hour by hour just for what so I can get a job that they want me to get, I've seen it with my own eyes kids saying I want to be an astronaut and almost any don't get too because school didn't let them exceed, I as a kid thought anything was possible, that you can achieve anything in life but school though me oder wise, so school is telling me that without an A on a piece of paper I won't achieve or make it to anything. I hope that future generations won't have to go through this crap named school just a system to turn you into "robots", "zombies", for a simple letter to be on a pice of paper.

    This made me cry. It’s true, so true... I’m not a parent, I’m a student myself, and having to be put with kids who don’t get it as quick is me makes the one teacher review thousands of times. I get bored a lot, everyday I come to school never getting a challenge, never able to do what I want to succeed in. The school system the way it is would never be able to bring out the creativity and success out of everyone.

    Are people actually this stupid? Clearly the government doesn't want to improve the school system, and that's because they want a dumb population to boss around. Just imagine if everyone was smart, they would have a hard time having people work for them, earning the government money. With dumb people they can make them work for the government, allowing them to get some sort of income. After all we are just statistics and numbers, nothing else to them.

    Yes Globalisation has shattered a CIVILIZED Globe for our dear children. I believe VIRTUE, that is the Nature's gift, depending up on the State of Mind of Parents (any creature) at Conception of any living creature. Chemistry tells us the Valence band, electronics teaches the Electron band and the concept of "e volt" energy. it is true in genetics. Genetics is greatly influenced by the State of Mind. To keep it Ideally or at least Desirably, Hindu Philosophy has a Huge Mine of Knoweldge. By the way I have some input to Democratically awaken the world to leave a civilized world to our children. Yes I am neither Wealthy nor very healthy to do it my self. I need some good hearts to join me.
