The Fallacy of Educating


“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” ― Albert Einstein

I’ve gotten a lot of bad advice, to be honest, most of us have and from a likely source—parents. I wouldn’t blame them, our parents where well intentioned, problem is, the world works very differently from what parents might see it as.

Their advice was simple and makes sense: go to school, study hard, graduate in the top of your class, get a high paying job and sit put; enjoy your margarita (ok, maybe they wouldn’t add that). And Of course, school has taken to this paradigm in manufacturing work-ready students. Ok, wait, I’m ahead of myself there, school are hardly even graduating work-ready students, so I’d r-phrase that.

Upon graduating college, I can attest to the fact that: schools are manufacturing students with false hopes, based on principles that are outdated and defunct for the society they are hoping to function in. I can go on and on, but I will like to share this hard-hitting video by Sir Ken Robinson
