A Note to My 18 Year Old Self

why school is a waste of time

Does school teach u to lay bill,mow a lawn. I could be wrong, but I don't think the federal government was involved in public school from the beginning. Our creativity, innovation and curiosity are schooled out of us. You do need to learn English and Math. And it is indeed an entirely another thing to sustain the successs of a business over a long period of time and another thing entirely to manage the failures in business Coscharis created a business, Innoson created a business, Bill gates , Osewa, Steve Job etc.

School is a place for development, both academically and socially. You think that Isaac newton discovered the law of gravity by. It is amazing that even parents complain about having to deal with their children homework. What is this world coming to? It depends on the kid and their age. Your brain and ingenuity matters,unfortunately Nigerian education doesn't equip people to be innovative or creative, yet we overflog it like hell, just get a job in bank or somewhere and perform laid down functions, that's all, no addition, no subtraction. School is a big waste of time. Others whine about how you'll be sorry later when the material is harder.

Yup, College Is a Waste of Time and Money

why school is a waste of time

Without some certain certified academic degree from recognised institutions some certain organisation won't do business with you and if your competitors should acquire this qualifications , then your business will suffer defeat!!! I see the 'op' can read and write. I had one parent turn livid and scold me for giving her kid such a lame gift instead of a cool toy. The work requirement of a PhD is so voluminous that he would never be able to concentrated on developing an enterprenuership venture unless such is an academic venture. There are 3 teachers in a room with 18 students. Both my sister and I could read before we got to kindergarten.

Innoson has people he is serving by selling suvs to them and they pay him Same goes with bill gates ,he has a market he served and get paid for Microsoft Softwares Steve jobs also. When does he make these proclamations about school? Even certain math subjects, the only people who will use that information is those who want to be math teachers! And forget taboo topics like religion, sexuality, different cultures, government debates, and examining the psychology of people, which all became the basis of conversation in the psychology, theology, and philosophy classes that I took in college. Furthermore, Forbes magazine projects that the cost of college will rise exponentially by the year 2021. She didn't last long, fortunately. Responsibility for your career trajectory lies 100% with you. More studying on whatever interests the kid? Life is about sticking to what's already comfortable. Plus there is the socialization aspects.

Most people go on to experience life, broaden their own horizons, and become much more opened minded and educated through self education. You can't expect all programs to be the same, just like you can't expect all designers to be the same. I hated high school when I was there but I can't tell you I'd be better off without it because that simply isn't true, I fear those that think I would be. I guess I got into a rant there, but my point is, classes need to be harder so that it doesn't feel like you're just existing in a room. I'm having trouble seeing the downside here. How were classes structured in the past to stop the disruptive children? Look at the Boko Haram fella who say 'western education is a sin' yet they use guns, deadly weapons and the likes to perpetrate evil! For me, that's not an issue; I believe higher education is broken.

My Son Calls School a 'Waste of Time'

Natural sciences, on the other hand, are legitimate. Here's an easier question: What did you learn out of school? This video is about why school is a waste of time and why it is a factory of 'success'. I have to do a research paper on something stupid and boring and I had no choice. Nigerian education is over rated, in fact here, its mostly about certificates. Your interaction with your mentors and peers will also shape you in a way you never expected. One study has even compared the chance of death among people with low levels of education to that of current smokers.

Why Schools of Education are a Waste of Time

By avoiding these topics, school sets our students up to become hot tempered narrow minded bigots. Me: silence Teacher: Do you have any suggestions about how we might create a more successful behavioral interaction with your daughter? One is entrepreneur, the others are servants. Who needs to know the midpoint formula when you're 37? The students that have no interest in learning detailing and how stuff goes together, yet want to do design and make inspiring buildings have flawed logic and an unrealistic view of the world in general. One big reason for teaching multiple languages is so kids can appreciate each of them. High school should equip most people for the world. While law school may be a good idea if it has been your dream in life to be an attorney, I would highly caution taking the plunge for any other reason.

Again, students from upper-middle class families may have an advantage here. The good news is that if this is the case, the passing of time and the ebb and flow of moods and hormones will, as you suspect, take care of the problem. With this being said, I am not against college. In those games we all played when we were kids, the leaders of those teams usually picked people who were ether their friends or had a certain skill set that could increase their chances at winning the game. This deep interaction with peers and mentors is immensely valuable. The worst part was the artiste mentality that took a long time for some of my friends to get over.

Like myself a 150 iq dyslexic who never ever did homework, it was pointless, and actually never attened class at university. Knowing how to read is a basic skill everyone should but, reading some books like Shakespeare, won't necessarily help someone become a better reader. By living at home, you just keep yourself immersed in their way of thinking instead of finding your own. The problem is kids love learning until they are put into the systematic factory of creating workers we call school. Some people myself included found a lot of value in the design aspect of architectural education and saw a great deal of overlap between the problems we solved in school and the problems we solve in the office. Note that this would also make more union jobs.
