How School Ruins its students February 10, 2007

Our current school system does not truly teach knowledge, or the use of knowledge. All it does, is teach how to conform. To succeed in school, all you have to do is do exactly as told. One does not have to be smart to get a 5.0. All you have to do is be respectful to the teachers, do exactly as you are told, and nothing else. You also learn to rush things, and to do the minimum effort. If you try to do more then is required, you are downgraded for it. If you have an original idea, you are downgraded. If you have a different idea, you are downgraded. If you try to do something truly well, and put all of your effort into truly learning the subject of study, you are downgraded. A smart person, is unable to succeed in this system. Our education is being destroyed. Education is supposed to foster knowledge, not impede it. Naturally, education differs from teaecher to teacher, and occasionally, you are able to get a wonderful teacher. This, unfortunatly, is extremly unlikely, and so far, I have only had three such teachers.
