Default Re: Valedictorian Speaks Out Against Schooling

Unfortunately, she is right. Too many school systems today are merely teaching a curriculum that allows the students to pass standardized tests designed to determine how well the schools are doing and not the students. It wasn't until I got to college and took an American history class that I really began to understand why some events happened and the repercussions of these events rather than just the dates that these events happened. Too much time is spent on pigeon holing students into categories for the sake of putting them into categories. The American education system is failing and I will bet you the faculty and staff of that young ladies school spoke more about her nerve in criticizing the system than they will trying to change it for the better.
