Our School System has to Change!

Amazing video that all must see.

Whats going on in schools is crazy!

I have two kids in school, with two different temperaments and two different abilities. They are expected to take the same exams at a certain age and get it right .. or what? They are .. inadequate? Special needs? Or just unworthy?

Everyone reaches goals and milestones at different times, when they are ready. That’s why we don’t expect all babies to flip by 4 months and walk by 1 year.

People don’t say things like: “he didn’t achieve the required ability” if a kid doesn’t walk by 1 year. Then why do it to an 8 or 10 year old?

Hope the world wakes up and creates “a world where fish are no longer required to climb trees.”

Till then, i will always tell my kids they are good enough, no matter what their scores on a test says.

  1. There’s nothing wrong in teaching a fish how to climb a tree but it’s wrong to admonish the fish for not being able to excel in it.
    Basically, it is not a bad idea to impart a child with basic knowledge of various subjects. So if a child who’s really really interested in history and archaeology is made to study science, it’s not bad. But yeah, expecting him to be scientifically genius is wrong 😦
