A Paradigm Shift Is Urgently Necessary In The Schooling System
“It is easier to land a man on the moon than to change the school system.”
― M.Z.Riffi - The Queen of Granada
This international shit show called “the education system” has collectively sunk us deeper into oblivion. -500 feet beyond common sense level, we’ve lost the battle against corruption. Is there anything more fucked than creating indoctrination camps and pretending that their duty is to “teach” us? While these institutions force their so called “knowledge” into our minds, one thing they can’t do that with is surely wisdom. What a shame it is that all these students think of themselves as wise thinkers, when in fact the truth is that they’re expert bullshit swallowers.
We succeed at graduating, yet fail at becoming good human beings. We weren’t meant to be pushed to fit into tiny spaces that suffocate the heck out of our creativity. No place has been created to help us put our unique gifts to contribution. The truth that the education system fails to acknowledge is that everyone has a reservoir of potential they can tap into. However, the ways to access that potential aren’t one and the same for every single one of us. The right conditions have to be put into disposition for us to bring that potential to life. Sadly, the education system, built on a “one size fits all” model, fails at accomplishing that crucial mission. You can’t fit? There’s only one option left for you and it’s called Quit.
Stop making us believe that grades are accurate markers of intelligence, when nowhere in this process you demanded us to judge the validity of all the theories that you’ve been impatiently throwing non stop at us. Our offices are filled with diplomas, yet our hearts are empty of empathy. Maybe a school for the human heart is what we really need.
