school vs education

Hi everyone… I trust y’all are doing great. For the next couple of weeks, we will be looking at a few pieces by several spoken word artists on school and education. The idea of this is essentially based off the toxicity of the current school system and how it is often opposed to education. School in and of itself isn’t awful if done right, however, what we often see modelled as “school” in our current dispensation is a far cry from what it should be. I’m positive this will resonate with a lot of you. Anyway, let’s get on with it.

 

School vs Education

 

So you want to get a degree… Why?

Lemme tell you what society will tell you,

“increases your chances of getting a job,

provides you with an opportunity to be successful,

your life will be a lot less stressful,

education is the key”.

Now lemme tell you what your parents will tell you,

“make me proud,

increases your chances of getting a job,

provides you with an opportunity to be successful,

education is the key”.

Now let’s look at the statistics,

Steve Jobs, net worth; 7 billion (RIP),

Richard Branson, net worth; 4.2 billion

Oprah Winfrey, net worth; 2.7 billion,

Mark Zuckerburg, Henry Ford,

Steven Spielberg, Bill Gates,

Now, here comes the coup de grace;

looking at these individuals, what’s your conclusion?

Neither of them, in becoming successful

ever graduated from a higher learning institution.

Now some of you will protest, you know,

money is the only medium by which one measures worldly success,

some of you even have the nerve to say,

“I don’t do it for the money”.

So what are you studying for?

To work for a charity

Need more clarity, let’s look at the statistic;

Jesus, Mohammed; peace be upon him,

Socrates, Malcolm X, Mother Teresa,

Shakespeare, Beethoven, Jesse Owens,

Mohammed Ali, Sean Carter, Michael Jeffery Jordan

Michael Joseph Jackson,

were either of these people unsuccessful or uneducated?

All I am saying is that if there was a family tree,

hard work and education will be related,

but school will probably be a distant cousin.

This is because if education is the key, then school is the lock (points to brain as an indication to think.).

 

We’ll stop here today to continue in the next sequel.
