jeremybisson44 Absolutely... #Logic will take you from 'A' to 'B' ... #imagination will take you #everywhere ... #Forever my #Inspiration = #Einstein 'squared' ... hmmm... I ponder "When did we lose sight of some of our most #prolific intellectuals' visions ... Many of whom brought the celebration of many #liberations of sorts, as well as countless improvements to our overall quality of life... Reduced to a set of #standardized #behaviours that creates non-thinking, #impersonal, #robotized agents that drive towards the emptiness of just barely being mortgage-free by fifty-five... Quickly shifts to a non-#discriminant behaviour, that silently develops antibodies which go beyond feeling #remourse for imposing consequence onto nameless #victims and begins to hurt those considered 'next-of-kin.' 3d

matwl A piece of paper does not define your person, your tastes, your character, or your mind. It only tests what you can memorize in a set amount of time. #tests #standardized #indoctrination #school #memorization #anonymous #smartscomeinmanyforms 7d

recreationeducation The way I see it, this is a huge part of the problems #youth of today face: no outlet! No outlet for physical #tension, emotional #pain or mental #confusion. No way to #express themselves in a #healthy #productive manner. In addition to #poverty, transition, #learning #challenges and #family problems, kids spend 7 or more hours a day in #schools that are more interested in data mining and #standardized test scores than the #wellbeing of our kids. The kids know this and turn to #violence out of #stress, #fear and #frustration . The problem is easily addressed long before it happens, and yet gov officials, testing companies, millionaires and administrators ignore #educators #parents and child development experts, and do nothing other than point fingers and threaten schools with pulling funds. Do your part. #Speak up. #Advocate for your kids and teach them.to stand up for themselves. And above all, give them plenty of outlet for their thoughts, hopes, dreams and ideas! 3w

plurmeate Sharing via @humansofny. I LOVE this page to NO END! Had to repost this right here bc this is after all #dropping #knowledge #Friday! #FoodForThought "His grandmother and I are raising him. I worry about putting him into the #public #school #system. I was a #teacher for many years. I've seen so much confidence destroyed by the #standardized system. Every #human is born with #natural #curiosity. I've never seen a child who wasn't inspired. But once you force someone to do anything, the #inspired person is killed. I dropped out of school myself in 7th grade. So I know. I taught a GED course for years, so I've seen the end results over and over. I've seen so many kids who have #complexes and #insecurities because they were forced to do something they weren't ready to do, and then they were blamed when they weren't able to do it. What we call 'education' today is not #organic. You can't take something as #complex as the human #mind, #compartmentalize it, and #regiment its #development so strictly." Sir....if I EVER see you when I visit the Big Apple, I will give you the biggest #hug ever! #Speak that #truth! 3w
