Education Comment


I think, school shouldn’t be a place where obsolete junk are dumped in my head but a place where my abilities are sharpened and channeled to benefit mankind.

If that were the case, instead of suffering myself in science class in order to become an electronic engineer, I would have stayed in the creative arts and might have created a world-famous advert by now.

Coulda, woulda, shoulda won’t solve anything now, but for the young ones coming behind reading this, please stay in your area of strength. The williams sisters don’t need to know any formula, they do what they do, and they are good at it. Same for Lionel Messi, Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, Usain Bolt, Picasso, Martin Lawrence, Ali Baba, and a whole bunch of folks like that.

School is not the only place you can be educated, it is way overrated. It is just a launchpad, a supposed leverage. Man was not made for the school, but the school was made for the man.

Like the bushman said in the 1982 movie The gods Must be Crazy, man created problems (civilization) then created school so that his children can go to learn how to solve the problems he has created. Its simply pathetic.
