Public education is nothing more than a long arduous process of making everyone hate to learn. You are so busy doing pointless things called
'homework' that you can't actually learn anything.
We need a system of education, where information is freely available to everyone in every subject. Obviously there would still need to be expert input
on the subject, to qualify whether or not theories or ideas have any validity, but alternative ideas should still get a mention.
Instead of a set code of boring junk for 17 years that will by and large be forgotten, we need a system where everyone is self educated, but still can
benefit from experts and peers. It would be more difficult, and less regulated, but the intelligence of the country would climb rather quickly.
Instead of good grades, actual intelligence and expertise would determine your work. Many would not educate themselves, but at least everyone else
wouldn't be dragged down with the idiots, which is what happens nowadays.
I know this is horrible to say, but having 'special needs' children in regular classes is a complete joke. It drags the class down, and quite
frankly I found it disturbing.
I know, I'm such a horrible person for saying what I think, but its true.
We need to go back to merit based discrimination. Don't dumb down education because everyone is stupid. Most people shouldn't even go on past middle
school really. They don't even know the information anyway, why waste the prime years of everyone's life with pointless drivel?
