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?

    I wanted to be informatician... now I am in the last year, repeating the year because nobody would give me job with my grades, and the teachers, the society and the businesses bosses destroyed my love into IT, now I am interested into Art, the thing I actually always was interested in, but always left for later, what is school for if the people won't give my ANY place to work in..., I mean I don't want any fancy IT place, I just wanted to work as an informatician, that is all.... 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...

    Remember the way your life is now is a 100% result of only YOUR decisions and only YOU are the one to decide what'll happen to your life
    If you're happy with doing a job 9-5 then it's totally fine, you already are living your perfect life but for those who are still striving remember YOU are the only driver of your life, There is no fucking thing called LUCK, It is never LUCK, It's YOU

    In My opinion Education is better than School here's why :-
    Education is like a key to know how live your life, How to respect parent and others and also How to help anyone or others
    School is like prison and Lack of Freedom for anyone, Always stressed and depressed, Taking stupid test or exam and if you failed the exam you will never graduate
    It's my opinion

    I think this is a great vid overall. However, I think it's construing of excellent football skills as educational success is stretching the concept of education too much.
    Of course, being good at football (or any other motor skill) is good. But surely it's not good in an educational sense. I think being able to reason well is extremely different to being able to place a ball in the back of a net. The former leads to autonomy, truth, and usually more wealth. The latter, the vast majority of the time, is simply an enjoyable skill to play around with. For this reason these two abilities should be treated separately. The first should be treated as educational and the second should be treated as a generally unimportant but enjoyable skill.

    Formal education will make you a living. Self education will make you a fortune. Please understand that "fortune" is not only denominated in $ It also includes spiritual, emotional, mental and physical enrichment. So while I agree with your premise, it's problematic when you start to mention the names that you have because those folks are incredibly few in number. The chance of hitting lotto is incredibly low and you probably still have a better chance of hitting that than you do creating a company like Apple or Microsoft.

    Education should be inspiring the mind, helping build ideas, and sparking creativity but instead it's about memorizing stuff to get a good grade. And then forgetting it the next day. Did you know that school was created to produce factory workers and simple minded rule obeyers. Why would someone successful want the rest of the world to be smart? It would just mean more competition most people high up in the game of life only wish to climb up off the backs of others. If I didn't. Communicate this clearly in sorry. But why wouldn't the people in power want robots? Robots are way easy to control.

    do what you want, want to be a garbage cleaner? study yourself, because "school" wants us to be what they want, they want us all to be someone like Albert einstein, but they should know not everyone wants to be like Albert einstein, we should do what we want so we can show everyone who we are, what we like, and why we're so unique. school sucks in all ways, it's like an unnecessary entry to go to university.

    I don't agree with this exactly. I believe hard work and education are related. If you work hard at understanding the material then it teaches you discipline and the means to understandimg the world around you which leads to wisdom. I believe what he is trying to say that if you bs education then you are wasting your money because you don't take the time to actually learn the material. People say grades dont matter in college but I believe they do because it shows your work ethic and work ethic is important in the real world. Regardless, people work hard in different ways besides education so people like bill gates ect. Who didn't gradudate from a higher institution had the wisdom to apply it to everyday life and ended up being successful. Education provides a means to be great but you have to unlock that end result yourself.

    School is just a factory where they produce robots (humans) to do some mundane boring task for the rest of their life.
    If you think about it, we spend 1/4 of our life in School, nearly 15 years are spent in school,
    one would think that spending that many years studying, we would all be Shakespeare and Einstein, but all we are qualified for is a job at McDonalds. If we want a real job that pays well, then guess what, we need to spends thousands of dollars, and go to an actual good college and spend another 4 to 8 years studying, while sinking in Student Debt
    and with the increase in population, its hard to find a job even with a degree
    good luck paying that debt off, or working at McDonalds for the rest of your life

    "There is more than one way to be an educated man." That is one hell of a true statement. 75% of my knowledge, I learned on myself, not school. The 25% of what I learned from school is the basic needs of living, but also things that kept me interested. I love learning and being educated, but the way school lectures is not the way I want to learn. A vast majority of what school teaches, I'm not interested. Their forcefulness upon students to learn a rigid subject, is wrong, because everyone learns differently. I take more time than most of my classmates to complete an assignment, because I work differently. Sometimes, I don't even complete it. Lets go back to how 75% of my knowledge is because I learned it on myself. I learned that much, because it was under my own time constraint and interest, whereas a majority of the subjects in school, are the complete antithesis of that. Here is what I learned on my own: Art, Animation, Story writing, Musical Composition, ethics, deep analyzation, extensive vocabulary/terminology, more complexed sense of logic, humanity, understanding one another, and a whole lot more. The importance about these categories, is not only do they interest me, they are essential to every aspect of my life. Here is what school taught me: Good argumentative essays, a little bit from my 9th grade history class, the basics, and that's about it. I'm a straight C student in my academics, but has no affect on my higher knowledge. So, what I learned on my own has helped me greatly than most of what school could have ever taught me in 10 years. I have great work ethic and one hell of a workaholic, but the school system just doesn't do it for me. I love learning, but I despise school.
    "There are subjects such as Geometry, that will help you greatly in measuring something and finding the area of it." Yes, but because of the unlimited resources we have nowadays, I can easily just search it up and find out how to do it. Must I repeat: 75% of my knowledge, I learned on my own. By trying to find the area for lets say, the floor of a bathroom, I'm choosing to do it because I need to, and not forced to. I want to learn it. So because of the unlimited resources nowadays, we can easily find out how to solve these problems.
    "If you get a BA/BS, then you will have a greater chance in aiming to a higher positioning job."
    While I can't disagree, if your work ethic and achievements are above average, and especially at a young age, entrepreneurs will be very impressed. Why at a young age? Mainly because people would not expect a kid to do for example, high ranking coding, at that age, which would impress them greatly. It would give them the idea: "If this kid keeps doing this, I can't imagine what greatness he/she would bring out." One person in particular, would be Katy Perry, who is a high school dropout. We all know her for her cultural affect because of her popular songs. Because she excels in this area, who would deny her acceptance to sing, because she doesn't have a BA/BS? Literally no one would. Now lets break down someone who is no where near as popular as her, but got a similar reputation. Eddy Zhong, the only asian kid who doesn't know how to do math, who has straight C's, has booted a technology company at the age of 16, that created the Blanc smartwatch. So while getting a BA/BS may increase your chances at aiming for a higher positioning job, working to the excel level of what you want to pursue, may also give you great chances too.
    I might add some more stuff if they ever come in to my head later.
