So, the human brain is insanely powerful, and mostly wasted on many inane activities such as memorizing bs someone made up instead of working on 0-1 creations.

I can attest to the public education idiocy. I've wasted 12 years of my life, and hardly know what i need to function as an adult, and students aren't given the opportunity to learn trades.

Most of what I've learned from actually LIVING, I've learned after school, whether it be through having to teach myself or college.

Mathematics and English was probably one of the better contributions from public education.

Education has forced me to learn to appease authority figures while simultaneously working on what I enjoy and think is worthwhile. It is a valuable skill.

I mean kids need the basic education, how to read, math, basic building blocks, and then it's up to the universe. I always thought if I dug deep into music, i'd eventually get into physics, bio.

For most kids, public education teaches them to appease authority and do work they don't enjoy doing, or will never end up doing at all in adulthood.

We need education that threads students along career/specialization paths of their ability/choosing. Not throwing them on their ass when the diploma prints.

Yeah totally missing the point of education. We only learn if we use it to create. If we are not creating, there's no point to learn.

Bottom line is, every student that comes out of public education leaves with abolutely 0 marketable skills.

I think bright people see through that system fairly early.

Which i believe is a complete waste, considering just how many years the school systems could have used to develop them.

Kids should have a life outside of school as much as possible. Kids are brilliant, I think if we actually unleashed them to freely educate themselves, we'd have very scary inventions.

The real kicker is your mandated BY LAW to go through this. If you want a better education, parents have to pony up the cash and research the school type etc.

Yeah, there are 17 year olds building nuclear reactors in their garage. I mean, this is insane, yet this kid found a much more efficient way to build one. Cost effective and everything.

There's no party like an indoctrination party because an indoctrination party is mandatory.

So, having lived in various places, I see that laws apply only to that specific pocket, region. I mean this is true in China as well. Nothing is across the board. It's actually not feasible.

Pretty sure that kid got serious radiation exposure and was arrested. Maybe if we had an legalized, supervised environment for these kids to practice... Would've been different.

I participated in a charity trip studying the "impoverished" area of rural places, but I quickly realized it was a way to indoctrinate those regions with majority education.

I meant "Standardised" education. but it was a failure because these rural people didn't give a cr*p about this. They went out their day normally like how they would. Singing and dancing lol

All these laws and standardization are always being implemented. The "following" is the other half. So if you willingly follow then don't complain. If you don't want to follow, just don't.
