This man created a powerful video explaining exactly why the system needs to change. And we could not agree more.
“Albert Einstein once said, everybody’s 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.
Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, today on trial we have modern day schooling. Glad you could come. Not only does he make fish climb trees but also makes them climb down and do a ten mile run.
Turning millions of people into robots, do you find that fun?
Do you realize how many kids relate to that fish? Swimming upstream in class never finding their gifts. Thinking they are stupid. Believing they are useless.
But the time has come, no more excuses.
I call school to the stand and accuse him of killing creativity! Individuality! And being intellectually abusive.
He’s an ancient institution that has outlived his usage.
So your honor, this concludes my opening statement and if I may present the evidence of my case, I will prove it.”
