Hello Steemians !
Welcome to this second chapter of "A secret they don't want you to know". Today we are going to talk about... Yes... Potatoes...
Education was created to share ideas, and to learn everything you want to know. Ancient greeks had philosophy schools where they could share their knowledge with every other citizens. It's funny how school changed...
But the world changed a lot from antic greece to 2017.
Demography exploded, the industrial revolution created more businesses, research, and things started to become more and more complex.
When anyone could had a work, today you need a degree or any diploma to do so.
When before only a few had a degree, today a bachelor degree is becoming a standard. The number of people who graduated grew up so fast, wich caused the degree to loose his value.
Some people who are smart and devoted can succeed in this education system, because they will rather be productive than learn something that can lead to human progress.
But not all people want to be the best.
Some people want to live their passion by observing the world (cf @always1success), and some want to create new things, when others want to invest in interesting ideas.
But society "wants" you to have a job, to be productive, to not make mistakes, and if you are not like this then you failed. I think this is reducing humanity.
Ancient egyptians with the constrution of their monument are the perfect example.
Their workers were not slaves as a lot of people still thinks, but they were a dynamic large group and very diverse : architects, sailors, builders.
They were organized, and for example they had a competition where two groups had to carry the stones to the construction site. The fastest group would won prizes, like beer, wheat, fruits, etc...
But they were the poorest population of antic egypt. Those who really had the better condition was their hierarchic superior.
Today it is the same. Big companies needs the best employees. So they search for educated people. People who get employed are seen as a potential added value to the company. They can win prizes, like money, trips, cars. But they are on the bottom of the pyramid.
So what do you think about this ? Do you think education system is still effective ?
