After watching the recent video “Why I Hate School But Love Education” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_ZmM7zPLyI) I’ve begun to really think about the subject.
I think I’ve come to the conclusion that traditional education breeds a bunch of programmed robots, with no individual flare, who are lead to believe that this is the path to living their dreams but instead are set on a road to nowhere, employed to make the dreams of others a reality. Your thoughts?
@mick, College provided me with a career, almost all of my closest friends, some of the best connections and networking oppurtunities ive ever had, as well as some of the best times of my life. If you go to college thinking your only purpose is to get good grades and get a degree, you will most likely achieve more failure than success. But, if you use College for what its really meant to be, there is no doubt that it will provide you the best stepping stone to the rest of your life. I have almost nothing bad to say about my college experience, I wouldnt be half the man I am without it.
It’s not for everyone.
I will check out the video. You should check out Summerhill.
