Suli Breaks - Why I Hate School But Love Education [Official Spoken Word Video]

  • Опубликовано: 2 дек 2012
  • Get tickets to my LIVE SHOW at THE ROCK TOWER [LONDON] on 25th August: here:
    The Latest Spoken Word Video from Suli Breaks.
    As the cyclical and seemingly never ending debate about education rages on, the topic - somewhat ironically, often poses more questions than it provides answers.
    But what is the value of mainstream schooling? Why is it that some of the most high profile and successful figures within the Western world openly admit to never having completed any form of higher learning?
    Paying homage to Jefferson Bethke's "Why I Hate Religion but Love Jesus", a piece that received 22 million views in the space of a week, I address a number of these issues in my offering "Why I Hate School, but Love Education".
    With scores of school leavers wanting to further their education with no guarantee of their dream job at the end of it, we should ask ourselves whether qualifications still hold the same value now as they did in previous years?

    Does success in the school system correlate to success in life? Or is the school system simply geared towards fact retention and regurgitation?
    What is true education?

    Education is learning something new everyday, and take joy in that revelation. Education is nothing but a tool to use to better yourself, not with money or riches, but in heart and soul. Education is sharing and receiving. Education is personal growth.

    Thi sis all true to a certain extent the college system is far superior then the flawed HS system. I still believe and see that college isnt just about passing but truly learning about whatever free field you'd like to take up. Sure drop out and try to do what Steve jobs did, but most of you arent Steve jobs.

    Universities were never meant to educate a man solely for the workforce. They were invented as a way to pass down knowledge and to increase knowledge beyond what was know by doing research. That´s where you do an academic study for, to get knowledge and do research with it and not necessarily to prepare yourself for the workforce. And these exams are a way to test if you control that knowledge. Your degree is nothing more than a paper that tells you what pack of subjects you control. But if you go to an academic institution to get a degree so you can have a good career and don´t care much for learning than you´re at the wrong place as there are countless of other ways you can educate yourself in the work field you want to work in in the future. One example i can give you is an intern education that company´s provide where you will be coached and be doing the work you want to do instead of countless of hours practicing mathematics where get the feeling from that most of what you´re learning isn´t necessary for your future career. In the end most company´s don´t care much for degrees but rather for experience. And experience you can get in the work field, maybe not all for free but could definitely be more worth your time. I know a man who did a technical course of one year and is making more money than the average college graduate as an technician. My conclusion is that these institutions are there only to give you the knowledge in the field you study in, not to give you the guarantee to a good job and a fulfilling live as there are many more ways to educate your self. That being said i wish you all the best of luck educating yourself.

    to me, its all about just working hard and doing your job right. My father always told me, it doesn't matter where you work, how much you make, it doesn't matter if you start off somewhere you absolutely hate, ALWAYS work hard and do your job right. leave a mark everywhere u work and that will follow you helping you move up without even going to school.

    This education system is stupid. In my school county theirs a program where u get to go to a technology school and learn to become a pilot, firefighter, work on electronics, graphic designer, about cars , etc SUBJECTS THAT ARE INTERESTING AND THAT KIDS WANT TO TAKE AND CAN PROVIDE YOU A JOB IN THE REAL WORLD but if u don’t pass your stupid core classes then u can’t go and it’s so stupid because their putting more attention on things u don’t wanna learn instead of thing u want to learn. I failed physics but I’m taking credit recovery for it but if I don’t pass it I can’t go to that school and learn about cars. Which I don’t understand why I need to pass physics if I want to go to that technology school and learn about cars CAUSE IN THE REAL WORLD YOU OBVIOUSLY DONT HAVE TO FIX YOUR CAR IF IT BREAKS DOWN

    This is so true. I hated school. But since I've left school (six month's ago) I realised I love learning. I've learnt business practice's (opening a small store), marketing, coding (html, CSS and JavaScript). I am choosing to learn now: but whilst I was in school I hated it. It was meaningless - like you said I've forgot EVERY I learnt in school but I can tell you anything I've taught myself in the past six months.

    I really like what this video is clarifying.
    The current school system is no good 👍
    I totally agree with you: Suli Breaks. I think the way you spread this information is so important.
    The structure and/or ways in the ways pupils are "forced" to study, in the current school system need to change. The "simple" question why?
    No human being (individual) is neurological identical to any other individual. We are all unique with strong and/or week abilitets. It's hard to be yourself in a society with a goal to shape/manipulate you to be like everyone else. So this is the short answer: The school system need to be adapted to the pupil who will learn the information/abilities, that is: the way teachers teach their pupils need to be flexible and adapted to the person they have in front of them.
    It's hilarious that when my father asked the teacher at my school if there existed any specialist on how to learn stuff (theoretical information like mathematics .... and more)? This teacher did not have any information on this. That is: How to learn?
    Why would you just hope you learn, and that you will remember the information? It would be much better, to have a system (a structured way) on how you are going to learn something (if it's theoretical). What do you think? If you just try something out randomly you are going to wast a lot of time. But if you had a system to learn it, in the most effective way possible then you have the doors open for success. But everyone is different, some people handle mathematical calculations in there head with no problem. But if you do not handle this (out of the box), maybe there is some systematical way to think to be able to perform calculations in your head? This is only one example on what is wrong with the current educational school system.
    - You are suppose to learn, but if you do not have a natural ability (you just get it) in the area/subject you are learning/studying. What you then need is a structured way to learn and process the information, and a structured way on how to apply it. When I was in school there was no teacher to showed me, on how to learn. But now I know that there is countless methods to help you learn.
    1. For example: Speed reading, and the process you apply to get information from a book.
    2. For example: Memory Technics, that is: you do not just remember "STUFF" randomly, instead you have a method on how you are going to remember information. Try to remember this sequence of number (you have 2 minutes to remember it): 01010100000100010101000000011010110000110111000000110111000000. If you just try to remember this sequence you are most likely not going to remember, but if you know how you are going to process the information in order to remember it, then you are on an entirely different level. This was only an example of clarification, to really show the distinction between: I hope I remember AND I will remember.

    It's hilarious really! The teacher just talk and go through the information at the "black board", and then the pupils is suppose to just learn it. But how? If you do not have a natural system (You simply just get it) on how you are suppose to learn, then how are you suppose to learn? If you do not know how to take in information, process it so you can remember and apply it (learn). How are you then going to be able to study in the most effective way?
    I also like (in fact I love it) learning, but I really HATE education in the structure it's apply in the current educational learning system.
    I say to you, be yourself and chase your dream. You are uniquely and special (in the most awesome way possible), and I wan't you to know that anything is possible. The only key is; that you believe in yourself.
    But I do not say that education is bad. I only post this so you open your eyes what the educational system really is.

    So unfortunate that teachers mark with 'certain criteria' in mind and if you answer outside this, you fail! Not everyone achieves favourable outcomes in our current regimented and structured education system - Australia is particular, is falling so far behind the rest of the world in terms of education outcomes.

    Money is not a measure of success. It is subjective and as a physics student, I think being surrounded by physics professors and having discussions with them is necessary. Not to say that I like the education system. I would rather read a good book than do homework or study for a test. But you need to work in a lab or do research at some point, which is hard to do outside of school without a degree. Again, this is not true for everyone. Just a personal, biased opinion.

    That whole entire David Beckham reference was so clever it took me a while to get, but seriously school is so unnecessary, it's supposed to make us more intelligent but it's making us become zombies and trying to make us simple, and non-creative instead of trying to make us become more creative which is what the world really needs nowadays to fix the problems that our past generations have built

    They tried to put me in the little boxes there,
    they tried to cut my wings,
    they tried to shut me up.
    My thinking did not fit.
    & my questioning was too much.
    It mostly went unanswered.
    'Go and work for Apple' I was taught.
    'Go and work for Nokia' I was taught.
    No 'idealistic' alternative was given, as
    'that's not how the world works'.
    I was also taught how to compete with others.
    So I could crash the competition in the future.
    So my soul was crushed at the end of this.
    For I could not understand why
    In "A high-level educational institution in which students study for degrees
    and academic research is done."(from Oxford Dictionary)
    Curiosity could get you in trouble.
    Academic research was frown upon
    and it often meant failed project.
    Questioning was unwelcome.
    What was welcome was to follow tutors words.
    I survived.
    I'm finding my own ways.
    Learning from amazing people
    Classes, workshops, wisdom
    And I'm trying to co-create
    with others
    a better world.
    I only wish I didn't go to uni
    So I wouldn't be left with massive debt
    That I have to repay
    For the 3 years of not-learning.

    I love Your Work Suli.
    Love & Respect xxx

    excellent content with many examples of good insight. however wrong use of "statistics" with regard to well know individuals. you shouldn't evaluate the few outlier cases and apply assumptions to populace in general. a dozen or so examples of well off lives dispute the lack of post high school education pales dramatically in caparison to the millions of lives hindered by the lack of degrees. i know first hand cause i count myself among those millions. we may not like the education system as it stands with it needing much reform but one shouldn't write off it's importance so easily

If they won't give me the job then I will just fullfilll my dreams and draw, fuck the corrupted society, fuck the businesses, let's just do what I feel I want to do, even if that brings me to being homeless and eventually to die :) I am 20, no job, no girlfriend, no house, no money, no friends, just a piece of paper that I am an Informatician, lot's of homework and no creativity...
