School! What Is It Good for?
It’s always fun when you’re talking about something and suddenly you find things that in turn speak directly to it.
A classic example of this just happened. I wrote this piece about how no education really prepares you for being self-employed. Well, for real life at all really. Then I found this music video from Boy In A Band. I’ve seen a couple of his videos before but this one still got me smiling and cringing in equal orders.
It’s not that I think school is a waste of time. But the truth is that the world is changing so fast, it’s hard to see how any education system that relies on kids learning things by rote and reading books ten years out of date can actually equip them for the world they will enter after school.
It’s hard to know how seriously to take the whole thing, but I thought it’d make a fun change of pace
