You had some good thoughts here.
For example, the compression of grades.
One of my thoughts is taking a gap year after every few years of school.
(And actually, they learnt a lot in the 1920s-1930s with only eight grades, that in the 21st century they might not do with 12).
And a lot of technology is problem solving and teaching yourself.
Reading and writing are also mechanisms for self-teaching.
What might be well taught in a class? Probably shared experiences like physical education, and then other classes to set your own goals.
Probably the same with art and with music.
There was a particularly penetrating insight about the guy who knows how to cheat being just as intelligent.
Is it more intelligent to know the rules or break them?
That would be a great start for an ethics class!
Yes, the conditions for the teachers and staff have to be better as well.
Thank you for your comments Adelaide. They are very much appreciated. You also have some good thougths there. :)
There were some more interesting opinions in the comments of the video, as well.
Especially the one where someone was saying "You can't tell another group what to think" - or along that line.
Yes, that was an interesting comment. There is a reason I haven't responded to most of those comments. For the record, I'm not telling anyone what to think.
Rather, you're giving them tools and information.
And more food for thought.
