Why do I suffer through classes I have no interest in? Why do I glue myself to books I’d much rather use as kindling? Why do I try to learn something I can’t possibly find a use for?

 

The best answer I could come up with to that is “Because it’s curriculum.” The truth is that I have no idea what I want to do for the rest of my life. So that is why I fill my head with loads of information I “might” get a use for later in life. But why is that necessary? Why can’t school be about finding out what a person is good at? One might say that is what school is about. But is it right to judge everyone equally, when we as individuals are so different?

 

“Everyone is a genius. But, if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it’ll spend its whole     life believing that it is stupid.” This is a quote by Albert Einstein, and I sincerely think he had a point.

 

In school, we get brief presentation of different topics, like history, math and science. Then it’s up to the teacher to present this in a way that makes it interesting for the students. If the teacher fails to do that, it becomes harder for the student to learn.
