Something which many of us know but don’t want to hear. Schools are making us less intelligent. Yes. And that’s what our education system has done to us over the past decade.
It has turned those creative peppy kids into boring teenagers who don’t want to think outside the box. With this in mind, is it any surprise that we, adolescents, and young adults today are bundled up under the cracking pressure?
We’re all just prisoners with books in our hands. Trapped inside of this caged structure being punished for our creative minds, the same path of a boring life withheld upon us with no saying of ours. Uncanny Souls being withheld by our system as prisoners, the tears being shed for freedom of creativity. Nevertheless, this sentimentalism goes in vain.
School teaches us that life is broken into discernible chunks and that learning and personal development are to be seen as work. Rather than allowing us to integrate themselves into the broader scheme of life and learn what we get fulfillment from achieving and what we don’t, school leaves fulfillment to five letter grades and a few minutes of recess. Where does that creativity lie now? Where does that strength lie? The strength to break through that prison of uniformity. I won’t say being wrong is the same as being creative, but one must remember; you can’t be creative if you’re not prepared to be wrong. They will say what they want to say. You need to identify what is your motive and what you want to do.
“Judging a fish by its ability to climb a tree will only lead it to spend the rest of its life thinking it’s stupid.”
While school can make you more academically intelligent, its diminishing your creativity. The hate of those Monday mornings. The painful 5-day labor, that’s what it has become now. The rest of the 2- days only to revive ourselves and succumb to the week ahead of us. They destroy the love of learning in children, which is so strong when they are small, by encouraging and compelling them to work for petty and contemptible rewards like papers marked 100. It’s our world, our time to come ashore.
And I would also like to remind you;
“No one has ever changed the world by doing what the world has told them to do.”
