    I think this is amazing. I am in school and I do feel like I'm stupid. After watching this video I realized that I'm not stupid, I'm just a fish being forced to climb a tree. I can't keep up with learning thing and after thing and then they expect us to grasp on to every little detail and take a test on it. The homework is stressful, and when personal things happen they still expect us to do the homework, know every detail, and take the test. I agree with you 100%. I think that America should definitely learn a thing or two about the learning system from Finland, I think it was? Also, a couple years ago, my teacher found out my passion and what I was good at. Now, if the school system was different he would have been like, "Well she's good at this and not as good with this. For her we should work with both things a little bit more." But of course, that's not what happened. I am passionate about writing stories and I'm not so good at math. What happened was we barley did any story writing and the math kept getting harder and harder and I just couldn't understand it. Right now in school I get judged by the teachers because of a stupid letter that will decide my future. These letters have 100% control over our futures, meaning they chose if we get into a good college or not. That decides if we get into the working place we want or one that is just good enough to make us money. That decides if we have a happy life or a not-so happy life. You see? Our whole lives get set because of one little letter. The system makes kids like me believe we're stupid, and thinking you're stupid can never get you any success in life

    I love the part where he talking about getting A's like I wish I didn't care but I just can't not care. It's like I've been programmed to strive for that and it's a symbol of accomplishment. I'm pulling my hair out right now trying to get my 89.09 and 89.05 to an A and school end TOMORROW for me. I love this video. I just also hate how everything these days relies on getting good grades. It's like "hey 13 year old. Guess what. Everything you do right now and in these next couple years dictates you future and your entire life and success" (a bit of a stretch but you know what I mean) like that's a log of pressure for a kid. Idkkkk.

    End capitalism, it justifies cruelty. The world can work differently (better) if we put our minds to it. We can make anything we put our minds to happen if we choose. Someone is choosing to keep it like it is. But because of a majorities perception we all lose. Save your soul please. I happen to know you'll be judged & in a way, by yourself. Nothing here is wert separating your consciousness from the sorce of love. I understand it can seem impossible but its wert it. Martyrs in bliss. All our problems are hardest in the beginning. I promise & i love you.

    As a person with ADHD I can relate to that fish on a whole mother level, I failed spanish this year because I was unable to complete the final in the time frame they gave me. I couldn't do anything about it bc in my 5O4 plan they didn't think my problem was bad enough. Trying to learn another language with a processing disorder was already difficult enough and then they had to give us time limits! I feel so alone to bc none of my friends have the same problem and are all A level students. My parents don't understand how I can still struggle even with medicine to help. I'm just done

    Omg gosh I love this!!!!! It's what I'm always telling people!!!! I go to this school called classical conversations... I love it bc they Focus on your strengths and what you know versus your weaknesses and what you don't know. They're are no tests just questions I don't require correct answer just an opinion. This literally needs to be shown to the world!!! My dad made c's in high school... he now he's the COE of a continually growing company and making more then a doctor. And it's because he knows how to solve problems and communicate with people. Bc hey if you can really talk to people and listen then people will want you on there team. You will start to go places!!

    Buddy you are dumb as shit. The message is nice, school reforms could be useful, but the way you go about it is so weak and emotional that the only people it convinces are tho who already agree. Use actually stats, actual points, actual knowledge. School makes trained workers because the rows are neat and inline, they have to raise their hands, and they get grades...really? Like I said in a previous comment, the school system hasn't changed since the 1950s, when the US was leading in educational standards. What has changed is the parents either not interacting enough, or berating the teacher to get unqualified grades and placement in advanced programs. If a kid is smart, they will excel. If not, maybe they should be factory workers. The school and institutions need reform, but so do the parents (and your) attitudes.

    What the fuck was that evidence? Phones have changed and cars have changed but schools haven't therefore they may not prepare you for the future?? Ok and we also haven't changed how we tie our shoes or write scientific papers or many other things. The classroom looked like that in the 50s too, and we lead the world in primary and secondary education then. Please stop being stupid

  • Sky Chaser

    I do agree with one point: Teachers do not get paid enough, but with the rest, it's iffy, you don't need fancy technology to mold a brain, all you need are children willing to learn, and teachers willing to teach. That is all. So I cry foul on your first piece of evidence. And you bring up that we are taught standard material, simple, because that material is basic. Material you will not know if you will need. Did I ever think I would become a mechanic? That I would need algebra and math when I went to school? No. I thought I was going to be famous, a athlete, a musician, but truth be told, we aren't all special snowflakes, we can't all be 'special'. But we are. Just not in the way others will try to tell us is special. I am me, and I will always be me. But when we are young, we cannot always tell who we are, because we haven't had the time to figure that out yet. Ask the me of 12 years ago if I would be a mechanic. I would shake my head and say no, ask the me of today, I would tell you I enjoy my job. I love seeing how machines work and move. And if it hadn't been for the school teaching me the basics that I required, I might have been on a river without a paddle, unable to change course. School DOES prepare you for the future, and future isn't all rainbows and sunshines. There are hard and boring times, even for me, who will tell you that he enjoys his work. You will always deal with people you don't want to deal with, things that do not work as planned. School prepares you for this by teaching you respect for authority, which is why you raise your hand, as to show respect to the teacher who is already being paid like garbage, who is there to teach you the basics. The basics you as a human being need, math, english, and basic sciences like chemistry and biology. If you want to sued the education system, sue them for getting rid of the things that these children need, sex ed being one of them. You tell me that School doesn't prepare you for what is out there, school has taught me how to do taxes, how to correctly deal with money, how to calculate and how to communicate.

    So next time if you wish to sue a school, look at yourself before you do so.

    School makes me so stressed I can't sleep. I developed insomnia and get a few hours sleep each night, I can hardly stay awake in class but I can't sleep at night, it builds and more stress and I get anxious about the next day and the next and the next. Everything builds and there is no way to get out, I'm forced to go, I can't leave, my life isn't mine anymore, I don't have any sort of control over my life. If my life isn't my own what's the point in it continuing? It's gotten to the point where I would rather die or be tortured for six hours a day than go to school.

    school in future will be more stressful and ended up stressing all of the little innocent kid.. and some dumbass parents in the future will put more threats to their kid hoping for great score in school.. and the kid ended up being "autistic".. one of my friend even cry so bad at school because of bad score.. he scared that his parent will "torture" him..physically..

    in the future.. I think it will be normal for all parents to do that.. they will think that good score = smart.. while the kids just remembering useless math equations that they don't even use in real life.. (not the basic math formula, the advance useless one) and the real intelligent people with a very great problem solving skill with weak memory will be called as a stupid person.. I already see all of this.. and this is not fair at all ! not much people think like this.. it's sad
