A+ 3-minute rap video: Schools fail to educate on Life’s most vital issues

Hat tip: Zen Gardner

Boy in a band’s 3-minute Don’t stay in school rap video powerfully communicates usual frustrations about high school-level education:

  • Students learn structure of government, including rights and leaders’ rosy rhetoric, but never compare current events to discover to what extent those rights exist, and to what extent leaders’ rhetoric match the reality of actual events.
  • Students aren’t trained about how money is created, mortgages, and having a job.
  • Students don’t know promised universal human rights (and here, here, here).
  • Students learn abstract math that 99%+ of adults never use (algebra, trigonometry, calculus) masked as “real-world” situations, when real-world problems exist that kill thousands and millions (and have solutions).
  • The conclusion is that topics that don’t apply to actual practical living, “don’t stay in school.”

We in alternate media agree.

Actual education of the comprehensive and independently verifiable facts prove:

What we have in education is continued by corporate media to lie, distract, and constantly keep adults from discovering Life’s essential issues they never learned in school.

We the 99.99% will win this contest for education of people of all ages to fully inform, and inspire the brighter future we all know is possible.

  • The schools teach corporate lies as facts. My elementary school has a lie up in the cafeteria, “Want strong bones, drink milk.”
    I remember learning the food guide pyramid. Later I found out it was made by special interests.
    Also the history books are thoroughly filtered just like the corporate “news.”

    “A good education” – the gift that never stops giving, generation to generation.

    As W’sB readers know, education is the key battleground in the war against oppression. Because evil must be understood before it can be defeated: “know your enemy”. That’s why the elites work hard to deny ordinary children access to learning completely in some parts of the world and restrict, harry and attack critical thinkers and theories everywhere.

    For many, “Newspeak”, Orwell’s chilling depiction of a deliberately-constricted language designed to restrict higher thinking, was his most brilliant achievement.

    That is what we face, if we let the elites kill the future by attacking our children’s right to excellent education.

    He is angry because he wasn’t “taught to vote, pay taxes, or get a job”? Are you fucking kidding me!! He comments saying “”Don’t Stay in School” isn’t inferring students shouldn’t stay in school”. He is seriously confused are already insane.

      Hey ooyoorgle: are you f-ing kidding us, or did your education leave you so seriously confused that you fail to receive the main message of both the rap and article?

      But thanks for showing us what happens when one doesn’t pay attention: you won’t be able to discern what is said from propaganda.

    In the first grade my little sister was taught: “Good Americans line up quickly and quietly.”

    There are many different variations of using technology for distance learning. Some courses are broadcast at a certain time on the internet and all students are expected to log in, similar to an online meeting site. This type of distance learning is called synchronous or live learning. Pass Guide 1z0-803 PDF
