Look, quite frankly, it’s never been less valuable to be information-smart than today. The current state of education in the U.S. is a thing of the past and it’s a MASSIVE problem. The way we’re educating our children right now is so broken, so much so that I think it provides ZERO value to our students and society as a whole. More children today are learning much more on their own than they are in the classroom because they have all the information they need at their fingertips.
Today’s professors are simply irrelevant to their students because they’re teaching with outdated methods. We’re teaching our children to MEMORIZE sh*t and then regurgitate it, which is just wrong. It makes no sense considering the way our culture has changed provided what the Internet has done for our society. I’m just disgusted by what’s going on in today’s classrooms. We’re being romantic about ways of the past and the notion behind how we think things should be, versus what the reality actually is. Students are going into massive amounts of debt to be taught ideas and methods that have no practice in today’s world. It’s not right and it needs to change. Now.
