No, we are not saying kids should quit school. But this video is definitely thought-inducing, and if you ask any highschooler, they will totally agree with you. (Not sure about the parents though…)
Just a snippet from the lyrics:
“I was shown the wavelengths of different hues of light
but I was never taught my human rights
Apparently there’s 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 rocks
Yet I don’t know squat about trading stocks
Or how money works at all – where does it come from?
Who controls it? How does the thing that motivates the world function?“
What’s even more interesting is that this video started a mini-revolution.
There was one school that actually listened. Enough teachers saw the video to decide to do something: they asked the kids what they wanted to learn more about. This is phenomenal!
Are you curious how this happened?

Amazing, isn’t it?
So when your child is upset with school and certain subjects – we totally get it. That said, exams and grades are still important so why don’t you get them some help? They might as well start to enjoy school 😉
