Schools teach our children what to think when they should be teaching them how to think.
According to Gary Vaynerchuk the school system is completely outdated and I agree with him completely. The system needs massive reform and we need to encourage more creativity and freedom of expression amongst children. The world runs on profit and unfortunately the education system seems geared towards creating good ‘workers’ to help keep the corporate machine ticking nicely.
So how do we change it? Well Gary points to Parents taking more responsibility and again I agree but I also feel like it’s not that simple because parents were also shaped by the same poor education system we are trying to change.
Schools should be teaching us so much more than just how to memorise information and regurgitate it onto paper.
We need to teach our children to have more confidence, to be able to understand their own minds and potential better. We need to create a society where children are well equipped with all the tools they need to enter into adult life.
Here are just a few things we need to be helping our children learn at school:
- How to grow your own food
- How to save money and enter onto the property ladder/invest
- Understanding mental health issues.
- How to handle rejection
- How to handle relationships and love
- Who was Nikola Tesla
- Self-love/ Self-care
- Importance of travelling learning about different cultures
Do you agree with these points and what others would you add?
