“To grow up and be successful.”
“To have a good job.”
To what avail is it, that we learn useless material that someone else came up with, just to get a piece of paper called a “diploma”? to what avail is it that people with Master’s Degrees have no use for them? To what avail? To what avail is it that once w leave high school, we get a job we most likely despise, then after years of service retire from, and afterwards then die? To what avail is this?
Your creativity, your dream, your innermost heart’s desire is slowly murdered every year of your participation in the school system. Why? Why is this reality that we all blindly comply to? Where are the innovators? The world changers? The next Martin Luther King Jr. is sitting in a classroom right now, learning about an apple falling on Sir Isaac Newton’s head. His drive to change the world is being strangled by the boredom he feels, sitting in that hard chair, silently listening to the teacher go on about the useless laws of inertia. He will go on to graduate and work at a job that will never move his heart like changing the world would, and then he’d retire. Afterward he’d die, and his life would have been vain in his own eyes. Why?
We all know that the school system is significantly flawed, yet my parent’s faith is rooted and grounded in it! They truly believe that this prison will teach me how to become a man, and make adult decisions. We are trapped here, yes, we are trapped in the confines of this giant prison. Not just physically! We are prohibited from speaking our minds, so we’ve no other choice but to keep our heart’s words in a cell, where they will remain for the remainder of our lives. Their existence is forgotten because we are told to “be quiet, and do your work” for the final time in twelve long years of compliance to the wrong powers. To what help or benefit, is this?
Creativity, and individuality should be inspired in the classroom. Reality is the polar opposite.
