Hey Everyone! Welcome or Welcome back to my small corner of the vast net we call the internet!!
I hope you’re all doing great.
In today’s post I’m going to be doing a sort of rant on how much the universal academic system needs to change!!
First of all let’s take a second to think about how things have evolved overtime. Things such as the car, the phone, homes, foods, clothes, jobs, even simple things such as our speech have changed. Not to mention cultural beliefs, religions, societal constructs and sexism.
But the one thing that hasn’t changed is the education system. Let me elaborate.
Above you will see a picture of a 1600’s classroom. Do you notice any similarities to the modern day one ?
What I mean to say is, throughout the centuries education has not changed one bit. And I’m sure you must be thinking “Oh but it has, women are now allowed to go to school, and it is also online as well” and to that I must say, one of those changes happened almost a 500+ years ago! The other change was a forced change that happened due to a pandemic. And if you really think about it the system is exactly the same. And I know some of you will say “Well if it’s not broken don’t fix it right?” Well that’s just it I think it just might be broken. Well let me rephrase it, not broken but some parts are unnecessary .
Let me elaborate; most of the subjects taught in school such as math and science, maybe even history, are definitely important but as we get older in our education I have realised there are some things in life that need to be learnt at an earlier age. Things such as how to manage a business by yourself, How to secure a job, How to pay taxes, How to raise a family, The importance of handling money properly etc. Things that can help us as adults. And I am aware that some of these things are taught in university but I do not see why these skills are not taught in school while things such as ‘finding x’ and ‘history of the car’ or ‘conjugating french verbs’ I am very aware that these topics are important to others, but they are not necessary at least not as necessary as the the topics I stated.
I just feel,as a generation of change, we should have evolved past this stage of education to the next.
In conclusion I would just like to say……… I’m tired of doing math homework at 10.00 in the evening ಥ_ಥ
Hahaha. But in all sincerity I really hope it can be changed, I would hate to see my future children in the same classroom that I am in today learning the exact same thing.
The world is changing with new info coming out everyday and It should be taught in classrooms!
We should look to the future and move on from the past!
Thank you all for listening to what I have to say! I hope you all have a fantastic day !
