School vs Education (New Piece)
What is school for?
Feel free to call me slow,
but, I spent 16 years going to school
and I still don’t know.
When I finished, I didn’t know how to do my own taxes,
purchase a home, or apply for a loan.
I didn’t know a thing about investments,
building credit or getting a job.
I graduated at the top of my class
and what did I have?
This fancy diploma to sit at home with my mom.
But luckily, they did teach me some important skills
like factoring trinomials
and how mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell.
I’m so happy I remember the Pythagorean theorem
’cause, it helped me a lot.
Okay, I’m lying, let me stop,
because all the stuff they taught me, truthfully,
Mom (speaks to his mom hypothetically),
remember when you would ask me:
“What did you learn in school today?”
And I would say: “Nothin’ much,”
I wasn’t being modest.
The truth about it mom is I had already forgotten.
And it’s not just me, millions of students sing the same song.
How many of you guys avoid eye contact
with the teacher to try not to get called upon?
Afraid to raise your hand for fear of being wrong,
which proves that school isn’t an environment for learning
or building up the intellect.
It’s just a game you play for grades
and how many “As” you can collect.
But I guess,
what do you expect when the most commonly asked question in class is;
“is this gonna be on the test?”
Is this gonna be on the test?
See, if school really put learning instead of testing and memorizing
as the top standard,
then the letter “F” would not stand for “Failure”,
it will stand for, “Find Another Answer”.
And if school was really interested in our personal and academic success,
students would wake up later,
have more freedom and homework a lot less.
And that’s not my opinion, this conclusion has been scientifically tested and proven.
And any teacher that doesn’t believe me,
feel free to check my works cited page to inspect.
Oh, and I did it in MLA format,
because I know that’s all you will accept.
