I won't rehash what I've said in my previous blogs, but I am definitely sticking with the topic of schools today and how kids are practically programmed. I've added the fact that we are 'programmed' because we pretty much are. We are programmed to get good grades, do what the teacher says and don't question it (even if they might be wrong), join every club you can find, and play sports so you can be a well rounded student and get into a great college. Kids don't do things because they genuinely enjoy them anymore, it's all about how it will help your college application, which is very twisted. School should be something that we look forward to, but instead we just go through the motions, and can't wait until it's over. That is pretty much the jist of my presentation, and I hope I can get the message across. I am using Ken Robinson's speech about how 'Schools kill creativity' for inspiration because I completely agree with his speech and it has some great points. I have embedded his video above, feel free to watch it. That's it for this week!
P.S. 48 days until we get out of school :)
