I SUED THE SCHOOL SYSTEM !!!


Albert Einstein once said Everybody’s a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree It will live it’s whole life believing That it is stupid Ladies and gentlemen of the jury today on trial. We have Modern-day schooling Glad you could come not only does he make fish climb trees, but also makes them climb down and do it [10-mile] run Tell me school. Are you proud of the things you’ve done? Turning millions of people into robots. Do you find that fun? Do you realize how many kids relate to that fish swimming upstream in class never finding their gifts thinking? They are stupid believing. They are useless. Well the time has come no more excuses [I] call school to the stand and accuse him of killing creativity Individuality and being intellectually abusive. He’s an ancient institution that has outlived his usage So your honor this concludes my opening statement, and if I may present the evidence of my case, I will prove it Proceed exhibit a here’s a Modern day [phone] recognize it Here’s a fall from 150 years ago big difference right stay with me Here’s a car from today and here’s a car from 150 years ago big difference right. Well get this, here’s a classroom of today, and here’s a class we use 150 Years ago Now ain’t that a shame and literally more than a century nothing has changed yet. You claim to prepare students for the future?! But what evidence like that? I must ask do you prepare students for the future or the past? I did a background check on you and let the record show that you were made to train people to work in factories Which explains why you put students in straight roles nice and neat tell them sit still raise your hand if you want to speak give ’em a short break to eat and for eight hours a day tell him what to think. Oh! and make them compete to get an [A]. A letter which Determines product quality hits great a of meat. I get it back then times were different. We all have a past I myself am no Gandhi, but today We don’t need to make robots-zombies. The world has progressed and now we need people who think creatively innovatively critically independently with the ability to connect See every scientist will tell you that no two brains are the same and every parent with two or more children will confirm that claim So please explain why you treat students like cookie cutter frames or snapback hats giving them this one-size-Fits-all crap [Judge: Watch your Language] Sorry your honor but if a doctor prescribed the exact same medicine to all of his patients The results will be tragic so many people would get sick yet when it comes to school. This is exactly what happens this Educational malpractice where one teacher stands in front of 20 kids each one having different strains different needs different Gifts different dreams and you teach the same thing the same way. That’s horrific. Ladies and gentlemen the defendant should not be acquitted this may be one of the worst criminal offenses ever To be committed and let’s mention the way you treat your employees Objection overruled. [Judge:I want to hear this]. It’s a shame Mean teachers have the most important job on the planet yet. They’re underpaid No wonder so many students are short change let’s be honest Teachers should earn just as much as doctors because a doctor can do heart surgery and save the life of a kid But a great teacher can reach the heart of that kid and allow him to truly live See teachers are heroes that often get blamed, but they’re not the problem. They work in a system without many options on the wrights curriculums are created by policy [makers] most of which have never taught a day in their life just obsessed with Standardized tests they think bubbling in a multiple-choice question will determine Success that’s Outlandish in fact these tests are too crude to be used and [should] be abandoned But don’t take my word for it. Take Frederick J Kelley the man who invented standardized testing who said, and i quote, And I hoped these tests are too crude to be used and should be abandoned ladies and gentlemen of the jury If we continue down this road the results will be Lethal I don’t have much faith in school, but I do have faith in people And if we can customize health care, cars and Facebook pages, then it is our duty to do the same for education to upgrade and change and do away with school spirit ‘cuz that’s useless unless we’re working to bring the spirit out of each and every student that should be our task no more common core instead Let’s reach the core of every heart in every class sure math is important, but no more than art or dance Let’s give every gift an equal chance I know this sounds like a dream but countries like Finland are doing impressive things they have shorter school days, teachers make a decent wage homework is Non-existent and they focus on collaboration Instead of competition, but here’s the kicker boys and girls their educational system outperforms every other country in the world. Other places like Singapore, succeeding rapidly schools like Montessori programs like Khan academy there is no single solution But let’s get moving because while students may be 20% of our population They are 100% of our future so let’s attend to their dreams. There’s no telling where we can achieve This is a world in which I believe a world where fish are no longer forced to climb trees I rest my case. [Applause] Hey guys, my name is Prince Ea and I want to say thank you so much for watching my video But now I wouldn’t know what you think how can we together? Create a more efficient effective and just better future of learning I want you to visit neste.com/preorderthefuture and share your thoughts and ideas on the topic peace… Paradox was here….

  1. Tomorrow is Monday and I would do almost anything not to go. To get enough sleep, to not be controlled, to be ALLOWED to do what makes me happy. Too many rules. This is supposed to be the country of the free, but in truth we are all prisoners. I want to be a paleontologist, or archaeologist as backup, but my dreams are being crushed out of me. Everything is pointless, it is all pointless. I am weak, someone, please help me. Tell me what I am doing wrong. I can feel the rebellious side of me rising up and I don't think I can stop it. I need to be alone for a day, just think about my life, how I can actually live. I shouldn't have to wait. It's not fair and I won't stand for it.

  2. I bet this cost a lot of money. This has nothing to really do with the topic of the video but, money is paper, paper comes from trees, I bet at the very most you paid all these people and this whole video probably cost 30 trees that died. Think about how many trees you kill making these videos. Just talk confront of a camera.

  3. Wow, your videos make me sad-happy, I'm sad of things being like they are, but I'm happy that there's understanding of what should come!
    Love you!

  4. I don't think people understand the basics that school needs to teach kids what they should know for any career.
    Mathematics: Understanding quantity, space, and other things are important to know. Math is necessary in many jobs today.
    Chemistry: Understanding why changes happen physically and chemically. Understanding the building blocks of everything
    Grammar and Literature: Learning to speak and understand your language to communicate properly. Understanding why people thought and why and how you can apply it to modern day
    Physical Education: Knowing how to take care of your self physically and to help you live a good life physically
    History: Knowing the past, understanding how the world worked. Knowing the problems and the successes of the past, it will better help the future.
    So many things are important to know for life but people don't want to learn it just cause they don't want to. Children need motivation to learn but also discipline or else they'll never get anywhere in life.
    If you want your child or yourself to succeed in life, then work for it. Don't just expect the world to throw it in your lap and celebrate you cause this is reality. If one subject interest you and you want to focus on that, then do that but learn other necessities that can help you. Learn even the hard stuff and soon you'll be successful. Stop skipping just because it's hard. It's always going to be hard for EVERYONE no matter what.
    That's my speech.

  5. I really do agree with this, the school system was made 150 some years ago, and in that time they needed to bring out factory workers who were trained to obey. That worked then, but now we need free thinkers, Thoughty2. Has a great video about this and gave some good ideas on how we could fix the system

  6. This is how I talk to my parents and teachers explaining why I don’t like school systems. I’m 12 and this is the first video I’ve seen of you, and I love the way you think. You think like me I also get into politics with my uncle and I win the argument.

  7. Only thing i disagree with is the fact that teachers are under paid. They don’t work most weekends and they have weeks off during the summer

  8. why do i need to learn calculus when i just want to be a mechanic? why do i need to be able to tell exactly what happened in WW1 and WW2 to become a mechanic? students are forced to learn things that they will never need just to live, students are the future, yet teachers are making their lives a living hell, yet expect the world to be a better place.

  9. You know what? You've inspired me, I'm going to talk to someone on the school board. I'll update you guys, WE NEED to make a stand. No one has tried, wish me luck, hope this gets somewhere 🧐 Your voice is just as important, help me in this battle.

  10. I wish my fish could’ve lived forever I had her for SO SO long but a few months ago Sophia my fish died and I will never forget her….🙍🏼‍♀️🤕😿😭😭😭😭😢😢😢😢😔😣😖😫😩☹️🥺😥😓

  11. iv been to japan. iv studied there. and their teachers are hands-on with their students. they are the teacher, the guidance counselor, the therapist, and the guardian of their students. they care. most anyways. i had 1 teacher that didnt like the job out of 6. i look at the US. and iv had 11 grades of teachers. of 6 classes each, excluding elementary. thats around 41 give or take. can be more if you count elementary school gym teachers, music teachers, TAs. the like.

    and only about 8 of them. i remember had a good mood wile teacher. others were down, angry, or demanded silence.

  12. If I become the President…..My rules would be:
    1) School hours would be maximum of 5hrs
    2) Homework should be maximum of 30 mins
    3) All the subjects will be taught till 8th grade and after that students can choose any 3 subjects of their choice.
    4) No Homeworks on Weekends
    5) No Holiday Homeworks in Vacations
    6) Exams will be conducted only once in the End of the academic year
    7) Playing and Physical Training period at least 1 hour each day.
    8) School Timings will be: 8:30 am to 1:30 pm
    9) Multiple Choice Exams will be Abandoned
    10) People will be hired not by their grades but by testing their creativity.

  13. I dont have that problem, my school is nice, its a catholic school/private/technology school and teachers and students are required to be friends (don bosco technical institute tarlac)

    Btw i live in philipines and teachers are highly paid

  14. I am from Singapore and do you know why we succeed? Because some parents will disown us if we get a C or even B 🙁 that is the sad truth
    But luckily the government is working on it and cutting down exams this year and next year I hope other countries does that as well

  15. Ok, school.

    The place we have to Go every Day..

    But get this.!

    Today at School, we have to do a MATH PROJECT? WHAT TYPE OF STUPIDITY IS THAT.

    HOW DO YOU HAVE A PROJECT IN MATHEMATIC, MAKES NO SENSE!

    EACH DAY, I STRESS BECAUSE OF SCHOOL, I LOSE MY HAIR FROM IT AND I CAN SEE PIECES OF IT.

    I HAD DEPRESSION FROM IT AND I'M 12. I DON'T HAVE IT ANYMORE BUT I SLIGHTLY STILL DO!

    EVERYTHING THAT HE SAID IS JUST TRUE FACTS!

    I TOLD MY MUM BOUT THIS AND SHE AGREES WITH MOST OF IT.

    IMAGINE THAT INFORMATION IS FOOD AND YOU DON'T LIKE IT, BUT YOUR FORCED TO EAT IT.
    NEXT DAY, YOU COME IN SICK AND VOMIT THE INFORMATION YOU ATE ON THE PAPER FOR JUST A LETTER DEPENDING ON HOW YOU DID!

    SCHOOL STAND FOR SEVERAL CREUL HOURS OF OUR LIVES

    HOMEWORK STANDS FOR HALF OF MY ENERGY WASTED ON RANDOM KNOWLEDGE!

    IT'S JUST THAT PEOPLE THINK THAT SCHOOL IS IMPORTANT BUT IT STRESSES PEOPLE OUT LIKE ME.

    IT'S JUST THAT PEOPLE SHOULD CHOOSE THEIR OWN CLASSES TO BE IN.

    "Hey man, wanna play some Games after school?"

    No..
    Why would I do that..

    I have "SEVERAL PROJECTS OVERDUE, SO MUCH HOMEWORK, I NEED TO USE THE BATHROOM, I'M ALWAYS GETTING MAD FROM STRESS, I DON'T HAVE A RIDE HOME AND EVERYTHING I HAVE TO DO IS "IMPORTANT" BUT IT WON'T HELP ME IN LIFE!"

    IT MAKES ME SAD THAT MY DAD THINKS THAT IT'S SO IMPORTANT BUT HE DOESN'T UNDERSTAND THE PAIN BUT MY MUM DOES.

    It just never Changes, in my eyes..
    School is just like a waste of my time..
    Like the Pictures that he's shown, it's True..

  16. And my parents be thinking school will give u knowledge and education, the only thing school gives us is stress, meaningless stress

  17. I have 20hr school here in Japan, I died once because of stress but the teachers just gathered some dragon balls and revived me from the dead. I have to go to school for eternal lifetime. 😓

  18. You're right. They say that the biggest cause of suicide in schools is bullying, well they're wrong, it's the school itself. Leading kids to believe this is all there is to life. Causing them to forget who they are and then they expect us to choose a career when we no longer know who we are anymore.
    What's the point of tests? To show the progress we made?
    My little sister took her SATs last year and she would come home with 12 page long homework pieces due for the next week, plus up to 4 pages for other things, why? To show her "progress" to be able to tell what streams to put her in the next year. And in that time, what free time did she have? Next to none, maybe 30 minutes before she went to bed. They say we won't always have a calculator on us? What the hell is a phone then? They say we need to remember all this information, that one day we'll need to remember it, we literally have access to all the information in the world in the palm of our hand.
    They say they're preparing us for life ahead, but what's the point if that's exactly what's taking our future away?

  19. 1:18 can I just say that some stuff did change, the photos just don’t show it for example there was no child getting caned in the old photo. Also the car improvement is basically a new coat of paint

  20. If we are completely honest here, I don't think ee can do much shit about this broken education system. No adult will listen to a student saying:school is bad and we should change it in something better. They will think thst you sre lazy and they will brush you off with the argument:You are saying this because you are lazy. I am experiencing these issues. One day I was at an art club, and somebody brought up this subject and the teacher sayd that she/he was lazy and I totally rekt him with an argument similar to tis video.

  21. School should be helping us find our passions, finding a job we enjoy and will be happy doing. Not training us to take orders for 7 hours.
