    The best education is not going to school at al. We don´t need no education. We need inspiration, an heroic home culture, where the parents can be a leading example, where the parents live successful habits, like how to respect eachother, how to learn from eachother, virtues, and morals, values, and christianity or a good religion, philosophy and how to read people, how to handle toxic people, or challenging situations, reading, public speaking, critical thinking, running your own race, loving what you do, and keep on doing what you love, how to laser like focus, persistence, endurance, consistency and learning every kid to think for themselves and how they can educate themselves. HOMESCHOOLING is the only answer on growing kids that will be GENIUS.

    *The ultimate truth will make the education system be all it can be*. Education makes people/children slaves of their environments, ofcourse you need to learn something, but if half of the education system is based on untruths and non objective reasoning ( for example history) It is better to not be a part of it. There is only 1 thing you need to learn. Learn the *ultimate Truth of Life* ( best explanation of the big picture of life in every facet) The *Truth* contains your ultimate purpose. Google *TruthContest click on the earth icon and read the Present*

      Uhhh...you think the only useful thing is a 5th grade reading level? Or 5th grade math? Or that by 5th grade kids know they want to be doctors and thereore go straight into medical training? Or that 5th graders in general have enough "going on" that they can decide their career and then only be educated in the skills most used by that career? Wow, Ryder...thank God you don't run a school. Not all education is poor, and yes, you used stuff you learned in school although you might be too ignorant to know what you use. Your idea reminds me of Huxley's 1984...but then again, I read that in high school, so you may not have a use for it.

    • Ryder Washington
      Ryder Washington Год назад

      Well, all education is shit. I mean, ask yourself this do you use any of the stuff you learned in school? No. I mean before schools you were taught to be skilled, and in order to be skilled you have to learn first hand. Why go to school when you can just prepare doctors from the start? If someone wants to be a surgeon, show them how the body works, then teach them how to operate on the body, etc. etc. real, first hand experience. Why do people have to go through 12 years of useless education (I mean elementary school is mandatory for general education like math, and writing) but after that it's just BS.

    As a teacher in Korea and with several friends in China. I ask if Bill Gates has pursued how the students are responding to their education in these countries. Korea has one of the highest suicide rates in the worlds--largely due to their educational system. It's filled with stress and competition and going to school for hours and hours. There's no being a kid...do we want to develop kids who can pass a test and be unhappy OR do we want kids that can do okay on a test but aren't killing themselves the night before their KSATs?

      The point is that Asian and Eastern European children have a drive and sense of discipline that kids in Western countries do not. It can't always be fun and games especially when you are failing as badly as the United States. You basically have an entire generation of stupid people. It will effect the countries economy, infrastructure, health system, etc. Yes, there needs to be a balance but there also needs to be an emphasis on what is important. Chemistry over Kim K. Science over Paris Hilton and so on.

    i see kids who watch this kind of videos ask teachers to help him, to like him and to have teaching coming his ways. No one can make other people to do what "I" like. To be reasonable, I don't have to like my job to want to do it well. Students don't have to like their teachers to learn. We do have to know being happy in the process of learning and working come by the power of will. Simple thing such as "I" like goes beyond what a normal person can do. It can become an attitude. "I" don't like this. "I" don't like that. With this type of kids, it's very energy-draining. Don't tell me that under this circumstance, I have to act like students like me for me to work things out. Students share the responsibility to like what they learn. Discipline is part of learning. It not a feel-good process all the time.

      +Huang Aisha You gotta be engaging. Humor helps. They are not adults. If you're expecting a dead monotonious lesson to leave a mark, it won't work. In university, sure. But in school, expecting discipline from kids ain't realistic.

      +Huang Aishag Aisha I totally understand what you are coming from. You have a great level of understanding and consciousness to realize that discipline is a key to success. There are kids that come from very poor families and cannot get any help from their parents. Their parent come from poor families they cannot be a good role model.
      Discipline is something that you learn .

    In 1853, a 6-year-old Boy in the Midwest was so sick, his Mother kept him home from school. (They did not have many medicines in those days.)
    He started school in 1854, at the age of seven. He thought, somewhat innocently, that he'd be placed in the 2nd Grade, because he was Seven. But the teacher said: "You never went to 1st Grade, so you are starting in First Grade today." It was a "One-Room School House" with Grades One through Eight ALL IN THE SAME CLASSROOM. (There were only 3 or 4 Children in each Grade.) The teacher would just go from one "Grade" to another, instructing the students in one Grade at a time. (And the other 7 Grades were on their own.) Don't ask me how ONE teacher ever did all that.
    On that First Day of School, the teacher was reading a story to the First Graders about a river that flowed uphill. That 7-year-old Boy asked the teacher: "How does the river go against Gravity?" That was an excellent question from a 7-year-old, especially in 1854! But the teacher said that was a "Silly Question" and that the Boy must be "Addled" (Retarded). (The teacher should have said the story was Fiction or fake, but failed to do so.)

    When the Boy came home from School he was crying: "Mama, the teacher said I was addled."
    The Boy's mother was a Schoolteacher herself before she had been married. So she did not send her son back to that school and home-schooled him instead. She just basically let him read whatever he wanted to. At the Age of Seven, he was reading a Chemistry Book, that was far in above his age level. The 7-year-old boy struggled to understand how 2 Gases (Hydrogen and Water) could ever come together to form the liquid we call Water (H20).
    After a few years of home schooling, the boy DID go to an Elementary School for 3 years. Then, at the tender age of 13, the Boy's initial schooling had ended. The boy obtained a job in 1860, selling newspapers on the Railroad. He was also doing Chemistry Experiments in the Caboose.
    In 1861, the American Civil War broke out and the Boy figured out how to use the still relatively new invention of the Telegraph to get timely news into a newspaper he printed himself on the train, selling copies for about 2 cents. But one day, his Chemistry Experiment exploded. The conductor was so angry, he fired the Boy, tossing him and his Chem Lab off the train.
    The Boy obtained a job as a Telegraph Operator, but he was not the best Telegrapher in the world. By 1869, the boy, now a young man of 22, had been fired from many Jobs. On

    a very enjoyable and thought provoking group of talks. i value the human relationships discussed throughout and realise that as an educator for nearly 20 years i may need a bit more GRIT to support pupils with opening their creative channels even though funding across schools has been slashed. i now understand more about the reasons i first chose teaching as a career and will endeavour to facilitate these skills through a delicate touch of climate control. many thanks

    There are about more than 2000 children living in slum areas near New Delhi. These children are forced to leave their education and are subjected to work in order to earn the livelihood. We have planned to initiate the fulfillment of the basic education for as many poor children as we can.
    We started our initiative in the mid of October, 2014. We already contacted more
    than 300 families based in local slums new New Delhi. We have also contacted local NGO's and schools to facilitate their admissions in the upcoming session of 2015.
    We have already arranged the funding for about 114 children this year. And we need some support in fulfilling the rest.
    Here is the link to our campaign:

    with all the horrific incidents happening in india in education sector, Indian teachers needs to learn something from this fab lady teacher.Education is not just about learning or knowledge but also about building the confidence, discipline and self esteem in students so that they can be productive and add to the nations development, while most education systems in india favors only the top students while caring less about the weaker ones making them feel left out and adds negative value instead of doing positive.The whole focus of the indian education system is to get marks i mean just numbers the teachers are teachings how to get numbers the students are studying for numbers parents are pushing students for bringing more numbers why just for jobs that don't exists funny isn't it.
