Schools In America must be stopped!

I think the Public School system is in need of a major change. Throw out the old way of teaching, Please! So we can get back to building and creating things again. And get away from focusing on industry workforce in consumer products and services.

Don’t get me wrong, an American education is a very coveted thing. But, The problem is, it’s set up for achievers. You have to want to learn at the curriculum’s pace to get an education in our Public School System. That’s great for most kids, but not all. The rest settle for the bare minimum.

Everyone of our lives in America, is tailored to the American Dream. Even in the ghetto, where most kids have to just figure it out on there own. Part of that dream is, if you work hard, you will make something of yourself. To many kids in the public school systems, now-a-days, could care less about the education that has been taught the same way for years.

If you have a child that does care, and is more advanced than the other children in the room. Get that kid into a classroom with other kids of like mind. Don’t put any limits on the amount of knowledge that a kid wants to learn. If you put enough talent into a room with the right resources, greatness can be achieved.

Not everyone is cut out for greatness though, but that doesn’t mean they don’t deserve to feed their family as well as the next person. Teach these people a trade so they can be successful also.

A person has to decide what they want from life on their own. You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make them drink. So just make sure they have a flavor of knowledge for every taste.

Offer the ability to learn as much, and as fast, as they can, about a field of study that will help this world, and whatever fascinates them. You would be amazed at the amount of talent you would find out there. If these tools are available to kids at four years old, by the time they are 16 they will be starting college.

You could use funds already in place to develop a coalition of multiple Universities, working together to come up with a new way to teach our youth. Include Ideas that work and get rid of ideas that don’t. By the time a kid reaches college level they will be well on the path of their chosen field and can now focus solely on honing their craft with others of like mind.

Make teaching as fun as playing xbox, and We’ll be turning out Warren Buffet’s and John D Rockefeller’s in no time. And we are in desperate need of some more Great Men like these.

There is a place for everyone in this world, let the student decide for themselves what they are capable of. That way, no one’s talents are held back. And we get, a giant talent pool.

It needs to be a requirement in America, that you have to contribute to something in life, no one should be able to settle for less. To many kids in the public school systems, now-a-days, could care less about the education that has been taught the same way for years.

You have to be challenging them daily also. What’s wrong with being prepared for the unexpected. And create some damn competition. Competition can be good, if it’s directed positively. Put up a leaderboard like “call of duty” and I bet you start seeing what a kid can do. Everyone can learn about something they are interested in

Part of the curriculum should also be what it takes to survive out here today. Everything it takes to be a productive happy Adult in this world. They should be taught how to find out what talents they posses, at a young age, and how to use those talents to be successful.

You could use funds already in place to develop a coalition of multiple Universities, working together to come up with a new way to teach our youth. Include Ideas that work and get rid of ideas that don’t. By the time a kid reaches college level they will be well on the path of their chosen field and can now focus solely on honing their craft with others of like mind.

Who knows what a kid can do if you give them enough opportunity and resources to be anything they want and learn about it at their pace. There is a place for everyone in this world, let the student decide for themselves what they are capable of. That way, no kid is left behind, for real this time.
