School: A House of Mediocrity Content: wholly irrelevant Time: a tyrannical overtaking of a human's time, virtually assuring mediocrity in all pursuits Social: most negative social influences have their origin in school.
School is a sanctified concept all around the world Children who have real talents (proficiency in test taking is not a real talent) are asked to forego them in order to study and get good grades Budding Picasso's and Jordan's are turned into factory workers
School is an enormous convenience for working parents It is a warehouse for academics who would struggle in the private sector It is a parallel universe that suits its own end It charges hundreds of thousands for that which can be had for free with an internet connection
School is the ultimate example of the power of societal conditioning Make something sacred, and one can get away with anything
Ask any teacher who is willing to speak the truth: "What can you possibly teach me that will benefit me in the real world, and that I cannot learn online, for free?"
True education occurs on the pavement, rather than the blackboard Humans do not learn via classroom settings Particularly not those things which add almost zero value to their lives
Proponents of school hide behind lofty phrases that incite fear in the uninitiated "Don't you want your child to have an education?" "Do you not wish to be educated?" Have a look at the syllabus and the social environment And one quickly recognizes what "being educated" means
Apprenticeship is education Jumping into the deep end and learning how to swim with water rising above your head is education Learning the nature of human beings is education Seeing patterns that others have not seen is education
Every child who seeks to achieve something in his life Must learn at a young age what he naturally gravitates toward, and what talents he has been given Then every egg that he has, and a few from the neighbor, must be placed in one basket To be continued . . .
