Don’t Stay in School

Don’t Stay in School

I wasn’t taught how to get a job, but I can remember dissecting a frog. I wasn’t taught how to pay tax, but I know loads about Shakespeare’s classics! I was never taught how to vote they devoted that time to defining isotopes. I wasn’t taught how to look after my health but mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell! Never spent a lesson on current events, instead I studied The Old American West. I was never taught what laws there are. I was never taught what laws there are!! Let me repeat,
I was not taught the laws for the country I live in But I know how Henry VIII killed his women! Divorced, beheaded, died,
divorced, beheaded, survived Glad that’s in my head instead of financial advice! I was shown the wavelengths of different hues of light, but I was never taught my human rights apparently there is 30! Do you know them? I don’t. Why the hell can’t we both recite them by rote I know igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rock. Yet I don’t know squat about trading stock or how money works at all, where does it come from? How does the thing that motivates the world function? Not taught to budget and disperse my earnings, I was too busy there rehearsing cursive! Didn’t learn how much it cost to raise a kid or what an affidavit is but I spent days on what the quadratic equation is negative b plus or minus the square root of b squared
minus 4ac over 2a That’s insane, that’s absolutely insane! They made me learn that over basic first aid! Or how to recognize the most deadly mental disorders, or diseases with preventable causes or how to buy a
house with a mortgage – if I could afford it ‘cause abstract maths was deemed more important than advice that would literally save thousands of lives but it’s cool, ‘cause now I could tell you if the number of unnecessary deaths caused by that choice was prime. Never taught present day practical medicines but I was told what the ancient hippocratic method is “I’ve got a headache, the pain is ceaseless what should I take?” umm… maybe try some leeches? “Could we discuss domestic abuse and get the facts or how to help my depressed friend with their mental state?” Ummm… no but learn mental maths because “You won’t have a calculator with you every day!” They say it’s not the kids, the parents are the problem Then if you taught the kids to parent that’s the problem solved then! All this advice about using a condom but none for when you actually have a kid when you want one I’m only fluent in this language, for serious? The rest of the world speaks two, do you think I’m an idiot? They chose the solar over the political system So like a typical citizen now I don’t know what I’m voting on which policies exist, or how to make them change (French)”Mais oui, je parle un peu de francais.” (English)”But yes, I speak a little french.” So at 18, I was expected to elect a representative, for a system I had never ever ever ever been presented with. But I won’t take it! I’ll tell everyone my childhood was wasted! I’ll share it everywhere how I was ‘educated’. And insist these pointless things
Don’t stay in school.

  10. Your school system is really bad I learned first aid at third grade and I learned my rights by heart at first grade

  11. I didnt knew there was human rights
    I didnt know how to pay taxes
    I didnt know how to apply for a job
    I didnt know how to get money

    but i do know this from school

    how earth was created (no use in my life)
    how people lived thousands of years ago (no use in my life)
    how we evolved (no use in my life)
    how my religion began (no use in my life)
    how algebra works (no use in my life)
    nouns (no use in my life)
    laboratory tools (no use in my life)
    how to play instruments (no use in my life)

    what technology told me

    Future jobs (USEFUL)
    How to operate technology (VERY USEFUL)
    How to survive (VERY USEFUL)
    how to tell if someone is having a heart attack (exquisitely important)
    how to cook (very useful)

    what games told me

    how to be social
    how to speak english
    how to have fun in ur life
    how to not waste time
    how to survive if u were stranded

  12. What's the point of life. I'm a kid and already thinking of running away. I'm failing , I'm gonna have a bad job. I won't have a family , I'll be in the streets …. And finally… I'll fall down a roof.

  13. school is just a place where kids get taught a tiny bit of "discipline" and parents get free time like where will i use this: 45-2e=15 school is just a day care for big kids, waste of time

  14. I'm a junior in highschool and I'm just realizing that, at least in my district, as of recently we actually spent the first lesson of sophomore year in English using the UDHR has a main text and were taught human rights. I guess schools are making progress in teaching more important stuff huh.

  15. I’ve always had all these thoughts in my head but never said them and here are like all of them in this video, like teachers saying that we won’t have calculators always on us and here we are now and many other things

  16. I wish school could give at least two fucks about my awful social anxiety disorder which is actually prejudicating the grades they care so much about it, but hey, I'm the quiet kid because of the SAD so they don't yell at me every minute for doing literally nothing! How great..

  17. we don't need no education. we don't need no thought control. no dark sarcasm in the classroom. teachers leave them kids alone.

    we don't need no education. we don't need no thought control. no dark sarcasm in the classroom. teachers leave them kids alone.

    all in all its just a…. another brick in the wall.

  18. School teaches us everything about life except what happens in our own.

    If we make a school of life with even the most basic practical advice many societal problems would be eradicated.

  19. In school we are taught but we dont ever learn . We are taught the matter to pass our exams but we dont learn much, if at all anything

  20. *plays this at school*
    *gets called to the office*
    Principal:But don’t you think things in school are important?

    Me:Weren’t you in the room while I played the song?

  21. i love all you do man just don't stop being you plz i'm just a big fan, people are trying to put you down and i just want to tell you to not let them in

  22. And if you really want to learn all that stuff, you have to pay thousands for college. School is seriously a complete waste of our taxes

  23. me: mom why do i need to learn math it’s just a useless thing
    mom: you need it when you grow up for work
    me: pulls out Calculator also what dose math have to do with art?
