first of all… standardized testing, no child left behind, all of that… i hate it. the concept is absolutely ludicrous and unfair.
i feel like our education doesn’t focus on the right things. i can’t even tell you how many times in my 13 years of schooling i learned the same stuff over, and over, and over.. and it’s not useful. i’m not saying it shouldn’t be taught. a biology class should be taught to everyone, as well as math, history, chemistry.. it’s good to have a basic idea of those things
i just don’t think we focus on things that matter… politics, how to be successful and take out loans and balance a checkbook and appreciate other cultures and religions and life skills… broadening your vocabulary and social skills, learning other languages, focusing on diversity and social acceptance, honestly even child development and education theories because most of them are gonna be parents one day… because school is supposed to prepare you for adulthood, for your career, for college… and it just doesn’t. it doesn’t prepare you for anything
