You know this really makes me think about the school system. My friend is not that very good at math but she is a AMAZING artist. I'm really good at math and language arts but I suck at art. People have their own special talents unique to them.

Before u read, let me get it straight that I am a subscriber and love what he have to say. Which all I agree. Just one thing thou. People tend to think that Singapore education system is good. It is indeed good in terms of how much they are able to produce compliment individuals.

I am a Singaporean and for generations, my family is here and I grow up here and am still in Singapore. Singapore public education is seen as prestige in the world. But.. Come here and u will see how many people struggles.. I am 22 year old, doing well in school. No re taking of module nor retaining. But with how education system is like here, I have yet to enter University. In university, we don't talk much about electives. Most courses only have about 20 electives to choose from. When I look at US's electives, I am astonished! So interesting and diverse!

With the timeline of education in Singapore, we are way behind with my peers of other developed nations. It is average for us to graduate with our first degree at 28 year old! And let me not start with how expensive our school loans are and how expensive it is to get married and have a tiny house. We are looking at 50k for university, 40k for a simple wedding and 500k for a small apartment! You may say that we don't have to get a degree but here in SG, a degree is more of less a expected norm. Without degree, glass roof are roughly 2,800 per month. With degree, there is almost not glass but you will be expecting 2,800 as starting wage. It is common for us here to leave with our parents till 30years old.

I am looking at being a preschool teacher but pay is about 2k with a degree. How many years will it take me to pay loan, even get married and have a house of my own? Tell me again.. How is SG education system that good? :/

This is so true. They should teach us stuff that we actually need to know for the future and not all this math crap and writing, we should be taught the things we want to be taught and work together to solve problems and maybe if we did that in the beginning the world wouldn't be like it is.

I'm a student 13 yrs young to be exact and this video hit me hard, we watched this video in our English class and i was probably the only person in that classroom that cried and i know that sounds stupid but the school system is ridiculous and silly.This should be shown more often because there are no lies in this video, everyone was a kid once but how people change against us so quickly is worrying. If us kids are the future why do people stand in our way and drag us down. Most of our week is spent in a classroom for 7-8 even more hours a day. Creativity must come back because if it doesn't everyone will be the same, don't be the same as others because we will all be like robots or zombies. My name is Enya i'm only 13 and nothing will stop me from being creative and nothing will stop me from being what i want to be.

OOOH! OOOH! OOOH! Let's remove all the schooling! Screw education, we can learn from the vegans. Wait, what if we just remove the army as well? Sweet! Gotta get those monies for... some reason. Lets also remove medicare because those old and sick people are a drag on the economy. Also we should dismantle parts of the government because they are too bureaucratic! ANARCHY! ANARCHY! ANARCHY!

hes so right

Author Kayleigh Shaw ( ago)
I may not agree with a lot of this guys opinions, but I do definitely believe in this one. School is a stupid system where we grade everyone's efforts and products of work on numbers. If I was amazing at what I did but was unable to do it their way, I'd get a fail, but if someone who produced work of a lower standard but to how they wanted, then they get an A and they are told they will do great things in this subject and that I,will not. I excell in my art, I can produce a piece that will outshine any of my current pieces which I created with their system if I am given the right opportunities.

Everyone is unique and different and though, yes others can do this and do well, We are all different. It'd be like saying every snowflake is the same, everyone's DNA is exact and that everyone's life is the same. But thats crap, none of us are the same, DNA,snowflakes and our lives are different. You cannot Judge a persons potential by our attendance, our scores, our quantity of work. I will not produce the same work as someone else and risk procrastination if I am given an individual choice.

I just wanted to state my opinion,go ahead make fun of it, but it is my stance as a pupil.

The problem with school is - we're forced to sit for hours, and then are expected to go outside, run around for 20 minutes, and then go back to sitting. We don't adjust to changes and 70% of our days are practically sitting.
And yes.
I'm a nerd. And I'm proud.

I can relate a lot this is so true I want to express my present of art and I just can't because if my teacher sees me drawing she goes to desk and snatches away from me and she says you can't draw you'll never be an artist just give up and tells me to my work and I just got enough and I spent 5 hours on my homework and if If I don't bring it in I get yelled at.

Author Ying-Hua Chung ( ago)
True, US teachers get underpaid. That explains the shortage of STEM teachers at high school. Let's get real. Both Arts and Sciences ed are critical for innovation and creation. Most sciences are based on math. But .... math has a deeper learning curve than arts. It takes patience and some tedious practice to get used to algebra. Good math teachers accompany/encourage students passing this tedious stage and then savor the fruits of STEM, exploring the world in another view.... But.... but the shortage of math, physics and chemistry teachers is an extremely serious problem. As a result of the shortage, many high school students have limited opportunities for advanced math, physics, and chemistry studies. Too few high school graduates emerge with the skills and confidence to pursue college study in physics and other STEM disciplines. Sometimes, you think you are a fish and cannot climb a tree in nature, maybe the fact is you don't have good tree-climbing coaches,... good coaches may be in Silicon valley and your government does not want to pay 1/4 of google, apply or FB pays. Then Tim Cook continues complaining not enough qualified engineers to hire in US.

Tell me this why do the adults of our society tell us children that we are growing up to fast
But I don't learn how to pay tax
Makes no sense does it I don't know how to pay mortgage
But I know how to find what x is
When my teachers family members and any other adult they tell don't grow up but why would I wanna
Do you know how many human rights we have as people
It's 30
I didn't know that till I checked out of Curiosity
Do you know how many LAWS and REGULATIONS there are in America to be exact about
How come I don't know even 5 of them

To tell you I'm 12 not 30, 27 , or even 45 I'm 12 at this moment in time
A period of time I don't like to much even tough I am just 12 I know that y = kx or that ax + by = c or the fact that y - y1 = m(x - x1) even that y = mx + b tell me I need to know how to graph or Algebra but I don't need to know the laws of my country or how many human rights I have or even how to get a job so I agree with every single aspect of what you say it hit me when I watched your videos for the first time I looked at myself and said"we need change"
So I am COMPLETELY on your side
Once again only 12

Author Miss Madness ( ago)
As an adult who has had great teachers and did try my hardest in school, I can confirm that the school, the education system, and so on has failed not only myself but so many others. Not everyone may be geniuses but I will be damned if most people can't excel when given the right support, attention, and a decent education. But getting the "right" education can be expensive not to mention the lack of quality attention many children suffer and support in pursuing what they like and are good at. It's pitiful.

When I see the photo of the classroom I think well he is kind of right we have advanced but not very much. I saw this on a video that my teacher showed me and it is where they use touch screens as tables to learn and they get to interact and tryout math and use and visually the color wheel. They still wrote but on like a touch screen table
