Prediction: Replacing schools with digital online classes.
I’m breaking down lessons High School taught me 6 years ago and I’m realizing I don’t have to attend a big, fancy, prestigious University to accomplish the American Dream. I believe Universities and all their wealth will deteriorate over time and be replaced by online schools. Thus influencing High School students to attend an extended learning program through online courses. In addition this student would have an equal if not better education without the debt.
Schools should be about the collection of knowledge and pushing boundaries. Furthermore schools should be about cultivating an open mind and supply a safety net for failure. Students are unhappy with their education system and while I attended University for 3 years I realized I learned more through side online course work than school work. As a result school gave me a mountain of debt and for what? A piece of paper that says I can do something. Turn in this golden ticket to get good jobs and get rejected by a lack of experience. How many people go through this?
The Fictitious American Dream
As a result of broken schools I instead learned meaningful knowledge through a computer screen. Although it’s not the teacher’s fault I learned nothing of value at school. The curriculum enforces the ideal road to success and I instead paved my own. Sure it’s rocky and took 6 years of my life but pursuing a passion is important. Do not follow the footsteps of our parent’s society. I see the results and it’s modern day slavery. Society has told us to do this. Well we must change society! We must change the way we think of this fictitious American Dream.
The Unaltered Dream
The American Dream should be about discovering who you are in addition to what you stand for! It should be about helping one another and finding new ways to solve our problems. We should be in Space by now! Love and experience life in the way you want your life to be like. Follow your American Dream or whatever dream that is and don’t look back. Live a life you don’t regret. Change our school’s curriculum. Prepare schools for life rather than exams.
