School vs Education. 1.2.
Hi, everyone! How’s it going‽ Still on school vs education. Let’s pick it up where we left off.
P.S: If you haven’t read the prequels, pls do. There’s a link to them at the bottom of the page.
School vs Education (Continuance)
I’m not saying drop out.
’Cause some schools are great
and many teachers are rare treasures.
I’m saying that there’s a difference between
people who are smart and people who score better.
So don’t expect school to open doors
’cause it’s more likely to slam them…
in your face.
Sometimes I wonder about all the dreams lost in school
and how much potential goes to waste.
If it wasn’t for music and YouTube,
then I would have been just another lost case.
Everybody reading this,
please, close your eyes. (Postulate via imagery intended)
Imagine a child sitting in the back of some teacher’s class in some town,
he never raises his hand,
he fails most of his classes
but inside of him lives a passion.
And if nurtured and brought out
will lead him to discover the cure for cancer.
But you see,
I’m afraid that child’s gift will never come out.
He will never win the Nobel Prize award
because in class he was ignored
and his worth was judged only by his scores.
So teachers, principals, parents, advisors, and students,
I ask one more time: “ What is school for?”
