Every Human being that is born has amazing
that potential can never be fully utilized
human does not have access to a high quality education
or has access to technologies that would help connect a person
and information. Potential starts with the human mind. Every
bit of valuable information
person can store in their memories

Education is a human right
, and a
high quality education
needs to be a
is extremely important. But because our current education
system is so inadequate
, very few people can understand the
that are needed. Most everyone knows the
of a good education,
but no one knows exactly what a
or what it's supposed to be, or
of a good education. Schools and
Universities need to have a warning label, "Warning, your kids will not be
Educated Enough, or
Schools don't teach you everything that you need
. And schools will not teach you or tell you what knowledge
and information is missing from your education.
When you tell people that education is inadequate, people can't
believe it. This is because you can't understand something that you have
no knowledge of. But this doesn't stop people from

problems with education, which actually proves the problems exist. When people don't
believe there's problems with education, they will never solve the
problems with education. This is why these problems have persisted for so
long. The Education System is a type of

Below is all the Research and information that I collected on education reform since 2008
I'm not finished organizing it all just yet, but this will give you some
idea about the serious problems that are plaguing our education system.
When we finally improve education and make it available to everyone, we
will then solve every problem on this planet, but until then, millions of
people will continue to
die every year
from things they can avoid. And
will also continue till
if we don't improve education soon. We have been making a
huge and costly mistake with education. The
of learning and becoming more
knowledgeable is not taught in schools, or is learning encouraged by
society or by the media, and most people don't even know this or are they aware
of it. It's like we are purposely keeping people in the dark about
reality. And we're not helping people to be more aware about better choices
they have, which is totally crazy. People should be more knowledgeable
about the choices we have, because 99 percent of people will always make
the best choice that's available. That's
the path of
, that's just
good is always better then being wrong or doing something bad. There are
many benefits that come from being good, so everyone should have the right
to be good and have the opportunities to be good. But this right needs the
necessary knowledge and information that helps define and understand what
is good and what is bad. If we don't improve access to valuable knowledge
and information that people need, we will continue to suffer from our
ignorance as we draw ever closer to a
. We don't
need a total collapse in order to rebuild. We don't need to destroy
everything that we have accomplished in order to start a new beginning, we
just need to learn. Everything can be
recycled. So as we are building a new and better world, we can set up the
necessary infrastructure that makes our world more
and a lot more
. And that
fact is where millions of jobs are. So
everyone will have a job
, and our world will continually improve for
millions of years. This means that future generations will only know a
world of intelligent living, and they will only learn about how ignorant
we were from history books, which will describe how our generation
suffered from ignorance and how billions of people suffered from the
the human mind. Censorship

has damaging effects on education. Education forms
the basis and the fabric in which a society is transformed and different
facets of well-being are shaped. Corruption in higher education has been
prevalent and calls for immediate intervention. Increased corruption in
higher education has led to growing global concern among governments,
students and educators and other stakeholders. Those offering services in
the higher education institutions are facing pressure that highly
threatens the integral value of higher education enterprise. Corruption in
higher education has a larger negative influence, it destroys the relation
between personal effort and reward anticipation. Moreover, employees and
students develop a belief that personal success does not come from hard
work and merit but through canvassing with teachers and taking other
shortcuts. Academic promotions in the higher education institutions have
been disabled by unlimited corruption. Presently, promotion is based on
personal connections than professional achievements. This has led to
dramatic increase in the number of professors and exhibits their rapid
status loss. Utmost the flawed processes in the academic institutions has
led to unbaked graduates who are not well fit to the job market.
Corruption hinders the international standards of an education system.
Additionally, Plagiarism is a form of corruption in academic research,
where it affects originality and disables learning. Individual violations
are in close relation to the operation ways of a system. Furthermore, the
universities may be in relationships and dealings with business and people
in government, which majority of them enroll in doctoral studies without
the undergraduate program. Consequently, money, power and related
influence compromise education standards since they are fueling factors. A
Student may finish thesis report within a shorter time upon which
compromises the quality of work delivered and questions the threshold of

decline, though it has been especially painful for small private colleges,
where, in some cases, institutions have been forced to close.
States are putting less money into higher

tuition goes up, and grants and scholarships don't keep pace, that's
pushed the cost of college down to students and their families. Without
state investment, institutions are strapped, and so are American families.

. If you
want to be educated and intelligent, you will have to learn how to teach
yourself, because no one is going to learn for you." Remember that some
schools only give you the illusion of learning
which is extremely damaging to people and to society.

high quality education and receiving a poor quality education. A poor
quality education will give you scars and will also make you more
vulnerable to injuries. And that is why every student on the planet needs
high quality education.

for pedagogy to treat the learner as a co-creator of knowledge.

Schools don't teach enough
you will never know the things that schools are not teaching you
until you learn the things that schools are not teaching you.
You will never know how
you are, until you learn the knowledge that makes
you aware of your ignorance. You don't know that you're missing
knowledge until you acquire that knowledge that makes you
that you were missing knowledge. Almost every problem that we
have comes from not knowing something. Fear comes from not
something, anxiety comes from not knowing something. That is why
learning the right things at the right time is so extremely
important. Once something is known and understood, then it is no
longer an unseen problem, it becomes a problem that you are now
aware of, a problem that can be solved. How
do you know that you know enough
99% of people alive
today don't know that they are extremely undereducated. And less then 1%
of the people who think they know what a good education should be, don't
want people to be educated. This is because highly educated people can
think for themselves, which would make it hard for the rich and powerful
to control and manipulate people at will. So over a 100 years ago dumbing
down all schools and Universities went into effect. It was not a well
though out plan. And sadly that plan worked so well that 99% of the people
alive today don't know that they are extremely undereducated. But the
ignorant people who devised this plan had no idea how many millions of
people would be murdered and how much destruction it would cause, for if
they did, they would have improved education and made education more
available. For it's pretty obvious now that improving education would have
been a much better plan.Improving

If education was more effective and efficient in the transfer of

Learning For All
New Global Education Monitoring Report 2016
. Education for people and
planet: Creating sustainable futures for all.
Schools that are ineffective can
penalize a child for life
. The student who
leaves school without completing upper secondary education or
without the relevant skills has fewer life prospects. This can
be seen in lower initial and lifetime earnings, more
difficulties in adapting to rapidly changing knowledge-based
economies, and higher risks of unemployment. The same child is
also less likely to take up further learning opportunities and
less able to participate fully in the civic and democratic
aspects of modern societies. Educational failure also imposes
high costs on society. Poorly educated people limit economies’
capacity to produce, grow and innovate. School failure damages
social cohesion and mobility, and imposes additional costs on
public budgets to deal with the consequences – higher spending
on public health and social support and greater criminality,
among others. For all these reasons, improving equity in
education and reducing school failure should be a high priority
in all OECD
education policy agendas.

free higher education. 2017, almost 70 million children across the world
are prevented from going to school each day. The right to education also
includes a responsibility to provide basic education for individuals who
have not completed primary education. In addition to these access to
education provisions, the right to education encompasses the obligation to
rule out discrimination at all levels of the educational system, to set
minimum standards and to improve the quality of education.

Universal Primary Education
is to ensure that by 2015, children
everywhere, boys and girls alike will be able to complete a full course of
primary schooling. Education is vital to meeting all other Millennium
Development Goals: Educating children gives the next generation the tools
to fight poverty and prevent disease, including malaria and AIDS. Despite
the significance of investing in education, the recent report, Fixing the
Broken Promise of Education for All: Findings from the Global Initiative
on Out-of-School Children—produced by UNESCO Institute for Statistics and
UNICEF found that the world has missed this 2015 target of universal
primary education, and there are currently 58 million children, of primary
school age, out of school worldwide.

Egyptian queen and the Great Royal Wife (chief consort) of Akhenaten, an
Egyptian Pharaoh. Nefertiti and her husband were known for a religious
revolution, in which they worshiped one god only, Aten, or the sun disc.
Together Akhenaten and Nefertiti were responsible for the creation of a
whole new monotheistic religion which changed the ways of religion within
Egypt. With her husband, she reigned at what was arguably the wealthiest
period of Ancient Egyptian history. Some scholars believe that Nefertiti
ruled briefly as Neferneferuaten after her husband's death and before the
accession of Tutankhamun, although this identification is a matter of
ongoing debate. Nefertiti had many titles including Hereditary Princess (iryt-p`t);
Great of Praises (wrt-hzwt); Lady of Grace (nbt-im3t), Sweet of Love (bnrt-mrwt);
Lady of The Two Lands (nbt-t3wy); Main King's Wife, his beloved (hmt-niswt-‘3t

What If all of a sudden
you lost all the knowledge, memories and information that you
had stored in your brain? You
would be on the ground like a new born baby. You would have to
learn everything all over again. So you have to ask yourself, what if you had a chance to start over
again and had a chance to relive your life? What would you change about the
things that you learned during your previous life
experiences? What things would you like to learn this time in
the first 16 years of your life? How would you like your
education experience to be like this time? What if you had a
chance to go back and improve upon everything in your life, and
improve everything in the world, what would you do? Guess what,
almost every single person on this planet is in that position
now. This is not a what if, this is a "What can we do now?"
The goal is to create the
highest quality curriculum that would give people the most
valuable skills and wisdom that would allow people to reach
their highest potential, and at the same time, give them the most
freedom and the most control over their lives. If people were to
be given the knowledge to understand life more accurately and
more completely, that would give people enormous potential, with
endless possibilities, and the ability to solve any problem that
the world is currently suffering from. But this is not just
about improving education, this is also about making sure that
people continually have access to the most valuable and the most
accurate information and knowledge that the world has to offer.
Information that would help people make the best decisions
possible, and at the same time, give them the greatest control
over the quality of their life.

This is a list the people and organizations that are working on improving education.
Learning from these programs and disciplines could provide some useful information. Hopefully it's not the same
that's just in a different package with a new name?
80% of our most valuable knowledge and information comes outside the classroom, but only if
you are actively learning the right things at the right time.
And that is one of the main reasons why education needs to
improve, so kids are aware of what's missing.
This is our time
All the problems that we see in the world are directly
related to people not having enough information and knowledge.
When people have more access to more knowledge, and when people
learn the facts about the world, they will have more
opportunities and they will have more choices. Just like when
someone receives a high quality education, that person has more
potential, they have better skills, and they have a better
chance of having a better life. It's time that we make improving
education one of our highest priorities. It's time that we
create a high quality education that everyone has access to. We
can no longer allow ignorance to destroy ourselves and our
planet. We have to make improving education a world project,
something that everyone can do together, something that anyone
on the planet can be a part of. Let education be in the News everyday.
Let it be seen on the TV everyday. Let people know that
important and that learning should be part of our daily life. Everyone has the responsibility to learn, to know more about ourselves,
to know and understand the world around us. This is our time.

thousands of years, as well as, providing us with many benefits,
advancements and luxuries. But during this process of survival
and progress, we have made a lot of mistakes and have caused a
lot of problems. This is your world now. This is your
responsibility. In order for us to improve our lives, and
continue to progress and to survive, we must learn how to repair
our mistakes, while at the same time, learn how to stop making
the same mistakes over and over again.
"Every problem can be
solved in this world, you just have to learn how to solve them."
Everyone is capable of understanding
anything they want, it's just knowing the things that are
needed to learn is the hard part. So if the knowledge that you
needed was available for you to learn, then
you could learn
anything you want

something, the more chances you'll have to use that knowledge
for your benefit, as well as for the benefit of others. The more
we learn about what we can do, the more we can do.
Improving the world needs to be a competition. Where countries
and communities can compete with each other. People love games.
So we should make our most beneficial endeavors more fun and
less boring. We are very creative, so it will be easy.

responsibility, and only 10% the responsibility of schools and

everyone around you.
My Speech Idea -
(this is 5 years old in 2020, this still needs to be updated more)
After watching over 1,000 TED videos, one word has been used in
almost every video. The word is education
. Almost everyone will agree how incredibly important education is.
Every parent in the world wants their child to have a good education. But
the most surprising thing is, no one knows what a good quality education
is supposed to be, which is totally mind blowing. Most everyone knows the
importance of being able to read and write, but no one knows what would be
the best things to read or the best things to write, which again is
totally mind blowing. But trying to explain what this means is extremely
difficult. What does it mean to have more knowledge and more information?
Again, extremely difficult to explain. Education has the enormous
potential to make improvements all over the world, in all aspects of
society. Of course this is not what our current education system is
designed to do. An improved education can
produce highly educated people with incredible abilities, skills
and qualities. People who could solve every problem that our
world is currently faced with.
Everyone knows the value of a good education. People who have a
good education have more options, more choices, more abilities and more
potential. But the improvements that we have made to education so far,
have fallen way short to prepare people for the world that we live in
today. We have a lot of problems to solve and a lot of challenges ahead of
us, so we are going to need a lot of highly educated people to solve these
problems and to meet these challenges. But access to a good education is out of reach for most people.
There is a Knowledge
. And even if you are lucky enough to go to a School, or a University, there is still no guarantee that you will get a good
education. And with budget cuts and school closings, getting a
good education is becoming a lot more difficult and a lot more
We have accumulated a lot of information and knowledge over the
last 2,000 years. And just in the last 100 years the amount of
information and knowledge that we've accumulated has increased
thanks to the internet
, and the millions of
people who have contributed to the largest source of information
and knowledge, we are literally sitting on the biggest gold mine
this world has ever seen. We have learned so much about
ourselves and the world around us that we can no longer afford
to ignore the value and the benefits of all the things that we
now know. The facts are in. All human improvements and
technological advancements have all been the result of more
people having more access to more knowledge and more
information. So if we improve our greatest tool, which is
education, and make it available to everyone, we will unleash
the full power of human potential all over the world, and at the
same time, fix all our major problems that we are currently
faced with. Every person has the potential to be intelligent, so
it just makes sense that we provide everyone with the necessary
tools and knowledge to reach their potential.
Every parent in the world wants their child to have access to
the best education possible, because every parent knows that a
good education is an incredibly important when it comes to their
child's future. This is why we need to build a complete high
quality education that everyone can have access too. An
Education that is available online, in schools or in the form of
software that can run on any computer or smartphone anywhere in
the world. This will give every person on the planet a chance to
be successful in their life, as well as in their careers and at
the same time be a benefit to the world.
There are currently thousands of people working on improving
education, but we can't do it alone, and we certainly can not
use the same teaching methods or the same inadequate curriculum,
because they are clearly not enough to prepare students, and the
evidence of that is everywhere, especially when you look at all
the things that can be avoided like the thousands of people who
are dying everyday, the millions who are suffering everyday, and
the enormous amount of destruction that is happening to our
environment everyday. These things can be avoided and so they
The world is desperately in need of educated people. People who
can be problem solvers for the countless problems that have been
plaguing our world for way to long. We have many challenges
ahead and we need many highly educated and skilled people to
meet these challenges.
We are an intelligent species with incredible abilities and
potential, and our advancements in technology is clear evidence
of our potential, and clear evidence of what educated people can
accomplish. And we all know that when we work together we can
accomplish some amazing things.
We have everything that we need on this planet, except a complete
high quality education that everyone has access too. An
education that provides a person with all the necessary
information, knowledge and skills that a person needs to be
prepared to live on this planet.
So lets do this...Lets build a complete high quality education
that everyone has access too.
IIt will be our gift to every child on the planet, and a gift to
future generations to come.
Thank you and Godspeed, ~Howard Mark Polley
improvements in the world from the bottom up and from the top
down at the same time, this way we can meet in the middle some
We know for a fact that the
driving force behind all our improvements and advancements in
the last 200 years, has been directly related to our ability to
educate more people. And we did this by building more Schools
and more Universities then any other time in human history. So
this education thing works really really well. But, we haven't
improved education enough in order for it to adequately prepare,
or have we made it available to everyone. So we are literally
wasting the potential of 100's of millions of people. 100's of
millions of people who could be making desperately needed
improvements all over the world, but are instead marginalized,
and there is no need for that.
Young people today need to
fully understand, we are just beginning to realize how badly our
schools are and that the way we educate people needs a lot of
improving. The enormous amount of valuable information and
knowledge that the world has accumulated, over the last 10,000
years, needs people that have learned how to correctly utilize
this incredibly valuable resource that we call knowledge. We all
know the benefits of highly educated people, so lets educate
everyone. If you're going to pass one thing onto your future
generations, let it be knowledge, it's the gift that keeps on
giving, and improving.
School standards and the curriculum are incredibly inadequate,
and our teaching methods are old and outdated.
Kids are not prepared and
definitely not ready for the challenges of life. That means most
kids will most likely waste way to much time thinking about
things and worrying about things that are irrelevant and
unimportant, which will cause them to do to many things in their
life that are irrelevant and unimportant. Life shouldn't be
something that you have to endure, life is something to explore,
and enjoy. And if you don't have the necessary knowledge and
information, you will get lost, you will struggle, you will make
a lot of mistakes that you shouldn't have to make. So you will
waste a lot of time, you will not be aware as you should be and
can be, and you will have no clear direction in your life, or
anyone else's life. Everyone has incredible amounts of
potential. But all that potential goes to waste if you never
learn how to utilize it, as well as, utilize all your natural
born talents, talents that you are unaware that you even have.
want the most accurate information they can get so that they can
make the best decisions possible, that would produce the highest
quality results, and at the same time, save time and energy."
When kids are not educated
enough it not only lowers their potential it also increases
their vulnerability. Undereducated people also make bad
decisions, and a lot of those mistakes that they make they won't
even notice that they're making them. So you see our awareness
is extremely important. It's more then just understanding what
you see, but more importantly it's understanding the things you
can't see. The more we are aware of, the more we are aware of
the choices we have, and the better our decisions will be.
Humans have brains, it's time we start using them, effectively
Just because you went to school does not mean that you are
To say someone is educated says very little
about that person. You can say that being educated means that a
person can read and write and do some math. It does not say that
a person is reading the right things, or writing things that are
relevant, or counting things that matter. Just because you have
abilities does not mean you are using them correctly,
effectively or efficiently. Educated and
should mean the same thing.
If you don't
go to school or college you won't get a good job, that is really a stupid
thing to say, and this is why. First, going to school does not define what
you need to learn, and getting a job does not define what type of work
that you should do. Just because you go to school does not guarantee that
you will learn the right things, and just having a job does not mean that
the work that you do is important, or does it say that the work you do is
valuable or that it benefits people and has a positive impact on the
world.So what do you need to
And what type of work should you do
can clearly see that education has improved the lives of
millions of people all around the world. But sadly we can also
see that millions of other people do not have the benefits of
education, which is causing millions of people to suffer,
millions to live in poverty, and causing thousands of people to
die prematurely every single day. The benefits and potential of
education is just to
important to ignore. Everyone needs to be a part of this. Since
2008 I have dedicated the last 6 years of my life, and I will
continue to dedicate the rest of my life to improving education
and making it available to everyone, I will not stop until my
body has deceased. I prey to God that I can live another 50
years. Because it would be a honor and a privilege to give the
last 50 years of my life, especially knowing that millions of
people will benefit from having a complete education, and then
those millions will benefit millions more, and so on and so on,
until every human that ever lives will have access to the worlds
Improving education may seem like an abstract idea, and it may
be hard for most people to visualize and understand what
improving education means, but it's not that hard to understand
how knowledge and information can improve someone's life, or
understand how knowledge and information can give a person more
potential. One of the reasons why improving education seems like
an abstract idea
is because the word education itself is abstract. No one has a
clear understanding of what education is or what educations
purpose should be. And the reasons why education is so abstract
is because todays education is fragmented and dysfunctional,
which is the cause of this abstraction. If you can't teach
people to understand what education is, then education will not
improve fast enough to meet the challenges that we are currently
faced with, thus suffering, diseases, problems and avoidable
deaths will continue for as long as humans live.
words education and knowledge has little meaning to the average
person. Beyond the basic
definition of the words education and knowledge, there is no way
to clearly explain what education and knowledge means, until we
create a high quality education and see the results. It's hard
to explain something that takes months, and even years, to fully
understand. It's not easy to explain something that's hard to
imagined or visualize. It's like trying to explain to some one a
place in the world that they have never visited or never seen a
picture of. No matter how detailed I am in my explanation, it
will never compare to being there and living there. You have to
go and see and experience it yourself. I can show you examples,
like show you poverty and say that is the result of a poor
education, and then show you sky scrapers and bridges and say
that is the result of a good education. But those explanations
would not even come close. There is no easy way to explain what
it means to understand, to increase your awareness, to increase
your potential, to see more opportunities and more possibilities
then ever before, an awakening. I have no examples of a great
education, because we don't have a great education yet. I can't
even be an example myself because I'm still learning, so most of
what I have so far is a head start. I can tell you the things
that I have learned so far, but that would never be enough to
explain to you all the benefits that I have experienced. I just
people working is not saying that things are improving, because
most people are working in the wrong direction, so they are not
having a positive impact or making improvements, so employment
numbers are irrelevant."
Experiencing a lot of different things does not make your life
better or richer, or does it make you wiser. This is
because there is no guarantee that you are learning important
lessons or gaining valuable skills by experience many different
things. I experience many different things in my life, but those
experiences provided little value to me when I compared them to
learning the right things at the right time. Knowledge is not
automatically gained through our experiences. Knowledge is a
slow methodological process that can only be
if given access to the right knowledge at the
right time and sequence.
Every parent wants their children to be able to make good
decisions on their own. So lets give them the necessary
information and knowledge so they can do this successfully. We
have this ability, so let us not waste it, we don't have a lot
of time to waste, or people.
We live in an incredible system that took millions of years to
perfect. It's a magnificent and sustainable a cycle of life that
has sustained humans for thousands of years. And if we maintain
this system correctly, it will provide us with life for the next
3 billion years. But we are failing, and failing miserably in to
many areas. It's time we educate people and teach everyone about
the problems that we all face in this world. We have a fighting
chance, But if we don't train and educate people enough to face
these challenges then we will have very little chance of making
any improvements, especially enough that would ensure our

is a term that became infamous when the Nazis used it to
describe non-Aryan "inferior people" often referred to as "the masses from
the East", that is Jews, Roma, and Slavs - mainly ethnic Poles, Serbs, and
later also Russians. The term was also applied to most Blacks, and persons
of color, with some particular exceptions. Jewish people were to be
exterminated in the Holocaust, along with Romani people, and the
physically and mentally disabled. According to the Generalplan Ost, the
Slavic population of East-Central Europe was to be reduced in part through
Holocaust, with a majority expelled to Asia and used as slave labor in the
Reich. These concepts were an important part of the Nazi racial policy. (A
dumbing down of education is the same thing).

We have the Ability to Improve Education 100 times better than it is today
And we can make education available to everyone on
the planet 24 hours a day. We have the ability to give anyone an
entire education on a laptop compute
r. That means every person
that we can fully educate will have the ability to improve their
world. So instead of people being victimized by an undereducated
society, people will have the abilities to correct and improve
their world. So instead of having a world that is in constant
decline, we will have a world that is constantly

the cure for our problems
, instead of just
using education to treat our problems. The potential of an
educated society is limitless. Imagine a world full of educated
people who fully understand themselves and the world around
them. Imagine. We have the Ability.
Imagine that all your knowledge of the world came to you through
News Papers, Magazines and the Television, you would be a
ignorant moron and have very little understanding of yourself
and the world around you. And you wonder why improving education
is so extremely important.I'm just doing what is
right and what is needed
. Knowledge and information is extremely
important to all humans, so I'm just trying to make sure that
everyone has access. Learning is an incredible journey that
everyone should be on.
All the problems that I have ever witnessed in my life can all
be solved by a few simple questions, How can this information
and knowledge be Taught and Learned so that this problem can be
understood and solved before this avoidable damage is repeated?
All our problems can be solved by improving education, if you
don't know this, then you are the perfect example of a poor
education and why we have so many problems, so you have actually
become part of the problem.
The Right to Education
If you knew of something that would give you more abilities and
more potential, you would want it? Improving education is our
best chance for all of us to live normal lives, lives that would
benefit everyone, and, everything.
Students today don't know how to study--period. Distracted,
undistracted--doesn't matter. At least that's been my experience
over many years as a college professor. They don't know how to
read or listen or take notes. They don't know how to research or
ask appropriate questions. They lack persuasive writing and
articulation skills. They don't know how to model themselves
effective mentor. Every year, i do my best to teach them various
methods of learning and studying. I give them examples from my
own experience. I tell them when I study, it's an active,
vibrant endeavor. I read, I take notes, I look things up, I ask
questions--all while reading a book. But when most students try
to sit down and read they fall asleep, they drift, they nod
off--and after a few minutes they finally give up and claim the
material's too hard or too boring or the professor is too
old-fashioned. Sure, there may be other ways to engage the
brain. But learning extended and focused concentration is still
a great skill. And students are too often enabled in their
distracted, unfocused approaches by well-meaning, but misguided
instructors who are more concerned about getting good teaching
evaluations than actually helping their students to genuinely
learn. ~ L Barrett
Look at all the problems in the world, do you think that
educated people caused those problems? No. It was all the
undereducated people that caused our problems. Even college
graduates are undereducated. That's because we have not yet
updated the curriculum to match all the knowledge, information
and experiences that we have accumulated in the world today.
We are actually rediscovering education, but this time there's a
better understanding about the potential of knowledge, all
because of the
, and the internets inherent ability to give people
access to an enormous amount of knowledge that's being generated
by millions of people from all over the world, including the
text from some the brightest minds throughout human history. We
have more knowledge and information now then any other time in
human history, and we also have more people accessing
knowledge then any other time in human history, and we also have
more people contributing knowledge then then any other time in
human history. There is no other greater time then now to start
learning. If you can predict a brighter future, then you know
what to do to make that prediction come true. So in a sense we
are following in the footsteps of the creator. Following the
footsteps that line the road to knowledge. The same road the
creator took that made us. It's like an endless cycle of
creation. With each universe giving birth to the next.
Today’s Education is Dysfunctional and
with little Coherence, which includes all Public Schools, Private Schools,
Montessori, Colleges and Universities. All these little improvements we
see in schools are inadequate. -
We can talk all day about what we
need to do to improve school education, but the bottom line is,
if there are not enough qualified people who fully understand
the improvements that we need, or how to implement these
improvements, these improvements will be to little and to late.
You have to define education as a whole. It's knowing
What to Learn, When to Learn it
How to Learn it
Why you need to

""If you never improve education
you will never have enough educated people in the world that are
needed to solve the worlds problems or handle the challenges

You can't have advancements in
technology without making advancements in education..we just
can't have all these amazing advancements in computer software
every year and not have hardy any incredible advancements in
being marginalized, which is costing us trillions. So that's
another reason why improving education is so extremely
important. If the education system followed
, education would be very effective today.
But sadly as it stands right now our Education System is just
another form of
Moore's Law and The Conundrum of Human Learning
Keeping All Students Safe Act
The evidence of a good education is visible in many places, just
by looking at our technological advances. But a good education does not
exist for most people. We know how important education is but we are not
improving education fast enough, or sharing it enough. In order for people
to be prepared for the incredible challenges that we're currently faced
with, we better make improving education #1 priority, if not...
Most schools discourage learning more then they encourage learning,
that's because people associate learning with schools, which they should, but, if school sucks
that means kids mistakenly think that learning sucks. This is
why there's so many ignorant people in the world and why we have
so many problems. Schools make learning boring as shit and
really discouraging, and you wonder why kids don't learn. When
kids relate learning with being in school they fail to learn
outside the school, where most of a persons learning is done,
that is if you know where to look and know what to learn and when to
learn it. Then on top of that we have made a horrible mistake in creating
a society that discourages the sharing of information and knowledge.
Curriculum and the Learning Genome
Learning Targets Tagged Curriculum
"Yes your parents and your teachers may be stupid at times, so if you don't want
to end up like them you better start educating yourself and
learn what particular information and knowledge is important."
"Most people would agree that teachers are the most important people in the world, but in
order to say that, you would also have to agree that teachers
can also be the most dangerous people in the world. Trusting
someone to educate your child is very risky, especially knowing
that most people do not understand what education as a whole
should be. In order for a student to trust someone else's
intelligence, a teacher would have to prove that their teachings
are the most honest, the most accurate and the most important
knowledge for its time. And to understand that, you have just
learned your first lesson as a student, there is always two
sides to a coin, thus, there will always be one more question to
ask....What's on the other side?"
information unless you have
"Improving Education is the number one priority. All other priorities, problems and
issues are directly related to fixing this number one priority.
It's not just that people don't have enough information and
knowledge, it's that some of the information and knowledge they
do have is not being processed correctly, and this is why people
make mistakes and make bad decisions".
When going to elementary school
in Danbury, Ct
. you couldn't see much around the school.
But when I got to Junior High School I could see the High School up on a
hill from the Junior High School, now I could see my destiny, my future.
But when I got to the high school I could now see the prison up on a hill.
I would sit with my friends and laugh saying now that's our destiny? No
way. But maybe the prison up on the hill was some kind of a sign or a
symbol for another type of prison. Like Ignorance, because Ignorance is a
prison. The lack of knowledge and skills drastically lowers the number of
choices you have, just like a real prison does. So I ask myself, why are
schools sending kids to prison? They're certainly not educating them
enough, so what's the problem?
"Ignorance is a prison
, the only way out of that prison is to
learn your way out."
I went to school but I don't remember learning anything.
I know I learned how to write, but I was not a good writer or did I learn
how important writing is. I learned how to count, but I did not learn how
to count the things that mattered. I learned how to read, but I was not a
good reader or did I learn how important reading is, or did I read things
that were valuable and informative.
"The only thing that can save us now is our ability to share
information and knowledge effectively and efficiently."
Putting students first is an
obvious choice of course. But the hard part is, as it has been
for years, is actually putting our best ideas into practice.
There seems to be a lot of talk but not enough action. We have
an incredible amount of information and knowledge that can move
us forward. And we have plenty of evidence that clearly shows us
the numerous benefits that come from a good education. Look at
our skyscrapers, look at our bridges, look at our boats, our
planes, our spaceships, our computers, our networks. Highly
skilled and educated people provide society with more potential
and more options and more choices.
Education is not only the best investment that a country can
make, it's also the most important investment a country can
. The only sure way to solve the problems in our world is to
educate students on how to be problem solvers. Then and only
then will our problems will be solved, and the quality of life
improve for everyone. Education is directly related to the
strength of a Nation.
So the more people you can fully educate, the stronger your
families will be, the stronger your communities will be, and the
stronger your nation will be. Education is the only logical path
to take. And I plan to stay on this path for the rest of my
life, as a teacher and as a student. A good education is costly,
but a poor education costs more.
"An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest
We're not really helping
education when we take a step backwards. But sometimes even a
step backwards is still a step forward when you compare it to
the level of knowledge that your average citizen has. But we
don't want to waste a lot of time repeating the same things that
we're already doing. We have an enormous amount of information
and knowledge that can help us improve education, education that
would increase every students knowledge and skill level, a level
that would be far more superior then the standards we have now.
So we need to focus more on the curriculum itself, because the
curriculum is the vehicle that moves our best information and
knowledge forward. So if your not updating the curriculum, then
you end up just repeating yourself, which impedes learning. And
this impeded learning is the source of all our problems. So if
we improve education, and educate every student to be problem
solvers, then all our problems will be solved."It's not the size of
your education, it's what you do with the education you have. So
it all comes down to choices. And if you don't know what the
good choices are, your chances of making good choices are
greatly diminished. You have to know what a good choice is in
order to make one."

Please quite your mind for
just a moment and listen to what I say
..Imagine people standing around in 1960 and looking up at the
moon and saying, hey, lets fly up to the moon, land on the
surface, and walk around for a little while, and then fly back.
That's sounds really cool, lets do it. Now just imagine all the
people, all the time and all the resources that went into making
that trip to the moon even possible. Just imagine how smart you
would have to be in order to design a spaceship that has
thousands of perfectly engineered parts that are able to perform
under one of the most extreme conditions know to man, this thing
that we call space travel. But as more and more people are
learning this specialized
knowledge like science and engineering, more people can now
explore space by making their own type of spacecraft, which is
incredible. If knowledge and information can get you to the moon
and back, just think about what knowledge and information can do
for you in your everyday life? More Possibilities, More
Abilities, More Freedom, More Happiness. This is why creating a
complete education is so extremely important. Just imagine an
Education that's full of the worlds most important information
and knowledge. Just imagine having this knowledge and
information by the age of 16. Starting in 2013, if we would
fully educated just 20% of our children starting at birth, in 15
years you would have tens of thousands of the most highly
educated people the world has ever seen. Creating an incredible
workforce made up of highly skilled and highly intelligent
people. People who are fully aware of the state of world and
fully aware of the responsibilities that they are faced with.
Humans greatest strength has always been our Brain. And the more
educated brains that we have working together, the greater our
strength will be. More Possibilities, More Abilities, More
Freedom, More Happiness. What are you waiting for?
Great things don't happen over night, but if you never start,
great things will never happen.
Keep Learning My Friends, a quote from the worlds most educated

earth awaits them..

start off by saying.."College
graduates, you are now the most educated people the world has

Every parent wants their child to have access to the worlds best education, so lets
A better world is still in our reach. It isn't gone because you
can't see it. Something doesn't exist just because you can't
understand it. The future always comes. Some people see it, and
others don't, and not because people can't see, they just don't
know how to see correctly. We have very accurate ways of
predicting the future, and we have been right and correct many
times, just look at our skyscrapers, look at our tanker ships,
look at our airplanes and jets. We know engineering works. But
because our current education system, not everyone has access to
the necessary information and knowledge that would give them the
chance to learn how to use these amazing skills correctly. But
just educating more engineers will not improve our world, the
only thing guaranteed to improve our world is by improving
education, and the evidence of what a better education can do is
all around us. People with better education get paid more,
people with better education also have more options and more
skills then the average person. And engineers end up creating
these amazing engineering feats like flying to the moon and back
and building satellites, and building a space station where
people could live in space. And it's amazing how so many people
are not impressed by these facts. But I would not say impressed,
I would say proud. Even though we have made some horrible
mistakes, and are still making mistakes, I know that we can turn
this around. Like I said, the proof of what a good education can
do is every where. Lets engineer the perfect education and then
distribute this complete education to everyone who wants to be
educated. So that's like over 7 billion copies, but guess what,
we print that many pages everyday. But this time we don't even
need paper, because we can use the digital world to deliver
"All College's, Universities and
schools should be free. They should earn their money on the
return, meaning, if the student prospers then they get a small

rewarded because the proof of the benefits will be clearly
Your ability to Learn
is the reason why you are alive, but
just because you're alive doesn't mean that you're living, you
could be struggling to stay alive, you could be suffering in
many different ways, or you could be wasting your true potential
on things that don't matter.
Knowing comes from Learning
There's something that would
solve all your problems and improve your life. And it's
something that you have been doing most of your life, it's
called learning. But in order for
to be effective, you have to learn the
right things at the right
. Everything that you are, and everything that you'll ever
be, is directly related to what you
. And your life is also
directly effected by what other people know. So
is extremely important when it comes to
improving the quality of life. But the process of knowing is not
totally defined. So the goal of this education project is to
define the process of knowing, and to define what would be the
most valuable knowledge and information that is currently
available. And then determine at which time this knowledge would
be best learned. This way, anyone who completes this education,
will have the highest degree of intelligence that is currently
obtainable, as well as the potential, the abilities, and the
skills to pursue any career, and to live any quality of life
that they wish. Testing will only be used to assist each student
in measuring their personal progress, and their personal
performance, and also to determine the level of intelligence
that they have reached at a particular time. There will be no
grades, you either pass or you don't pass. If you pass, then you
move on to the next level, if you don't pass, then you keep
trying until you reached the next level. And if a person needs
extra help or guidance, then the student must seek out and use
the resources available. There is no time limits, so you can go
as fast as you want, or go as slow as you want. Intelligence is
not a race. Intelligence is a process. Some will take more time,
and some will take less time, but everyone will eventually pass,
whether you're gifted or not so gifted. Each person will
eventually have a greater understanding of themselves and the
world around them, and, be able live their life to the fullest
do you Know
Living a Good Life is learning how to live a Good Life
The level of intelligence that a student reaches will be measured when the student has
passed all the courses, similar to a
. But of course there is nothing final
about intelligence. Testing will mostly be used to determine that the
student has the understanding and the abilities to be
intelligent. The true measure of intelligence only comes from a
persons actions, and not from how well a person does on tests.
So if testing has determined that a person has reached a higher
level of intelligence then you, this does not mean that the
person is smarter then you, because they still have to prove
intelligence by their actions.
Education will be engaging
because you will choose the
style of learning
that works best for
you. You will also choose the time and place for learning that
works best for you. You will also choose the speed of learning
that works best for you.

Our main concern is that
big corporations are exploiting too many of our best and brightest
students, luring them in with high paying jobs that just end up wasting
their valuable brain power and potential. Having them working on bogus
projects that do more harm to society than good. It's bad enough that big
corporations are buying up the competition and creating monopolies, but
they are also buying up people like they were pawns. This is a dangerous
game that they are destined to lose. Sadly, some of them don't even care
that they're losing. But many people do care. We don't want to be dragged

referred to as streaming or phasing in certain schools. In a tracking

below average. Students attend

in education. The way a vast amount of schools are setup, with classes
grouping children based on their ability
is severely affecting pupil's self-confidence.
Not everything about tracking is bad
especially when putting together good teams and organizations. But
there are many bad things with tracking students. The main problem is not the
tracking itself, it is the teaching in a classroom setting where a group
of students is taught by one teacher who has
one student, or can give any one student personal attention. This is not
just a horrible way to educate someone, it is also a horrible way to treat
someone. To be estranged

their own pace. Every student should be allowed to advance quicker, and
every student should be allowed to take their time when needed. But the most important
thing is that every student should fully understand their
current level of knowledge and fully understand their current skill level,
as well as fully understand how to reach their personal education goals. And
on top of that, every student should fully understand what a
false sense of accomplishment is, and why it's dangerous to have a false
sense of failure or have a false sense of worth.

problem, which is the under-education of students. You still have
dumb and dumber
. And most students are not aware of this, which is proof that
the dumbing down of education exists. If everyone around you is ignorant, then
you will think that your ignorance is normal, and
you will conform to what
you think is normal
. And students in higher performing classes will
ignorantly believe that they are more educated, which is partly true, but
when you compare yourself to less educated people, then you only confirm
that you yourself are not fully educated.

partly true because I did not know then what I know now. Danbury High

The End of

"Today, wherever youngsters attend school, they hang up their coats, face the
flag and express belief that they, along with the states, pledge
to remain undivided. Soon after, however, the children divide
into fast, average, and slow learning groups. Time widens the
physical and educational distances which discriminate reading
groups into social classes, learning tracks, and internally
segregated schools. Young people become bonded to members of
their reading group and alienate from those in
other reading groups. Reticent to leave their supportive group
to advance to another group of strange , and possibly hostile
youngsters, many pupils remain socially , educationally, and
linguistically segregated and unequal to others all their lives."
~Quoted by Robert and Lois Wolsch in the Book "Literacy
Assured", page 4.
"Play-Doh fun factories,
squeezing out supposedly educated human beings, marching them around from
class to class — bells bonging, punishments escalating,
on. Every day something like 16 million high-school students
get up at the crack of dawn, slurp some oat clusters while barely
conscious, hop on a bus, bounce around the county, show up and sit in a
chair, zoned out, waiting for the first bell. If they’re late, they are
written up. Even if they don’t do much academic work, they are physically
present. Their attendance is a valuable commodity, because if students
don’t attend, teachers and guidance counselors and principals and textbook
makers and designers of educational software have no jobs. A huge
lucrative industry is built around them, and the students get nothing out
of it but a G.P.A. They deserve not to have their
time wasted. Their lives are absurdly regimented
. Teachers spend
half their time shouting themselves hoarse, and young adults are infantilized."
My heart breaks when I see kids that have so much potential and abilities being
subjected to this cruel and incompetent education system. An
education system that has no idea what education should be. And
on top of that people are putting way to much faith in college
as a means to an end when college is just a continuation of this
incompetent education system. Yes college does give you more

masters of people, but the masters of life." There is this
ignorant assumption that people actually think that kids will
just figure stuff out on their own..Figure What Out? What Stuff
are you talking about?
"Everything that we do in this world has
an opportunity to teach and learn something, don't waste the opportunity."
A lot of things that we learn are by chance, randomly and spontaneously. But you have to
in order to learn.
To judge education success by
reading and math scores is not just inadequate but incredibly
moronic. Reading and math is just 10% of the actual education
that every human needs. It’s like a car manufacturer selling you
a car without an engine or a gas tank and telling you “Hey at
least the car still rolls”. No engine to power it and no tank to
add fuel. That’s not education, that’s a scam.
When someone asks "What's wrong with education?" They have already answered the
question and given a good example at the same time.
"The Education Revolution has begun, the war on ignorance must be won"
Our teachers are on the frontline in this war,
teachers are our most important soldiers,
but if teachers do not become part of the solution they will
then be part of the problem.
What is the
The Perfect Education
Emile, or On Education
Our educational standards are incredibly inadequate
and are an injustice to our children's future. Since most
people, parents and teachers, are unaware of what academic
studies that we need to expand on, and how they should be
formulated for each age group, then it is safe to say that we
will all learn this together. Everyone needs life skills and an
education that provides the necessary knowledge that we use in
everyday life. The best way to improve our world is to improve
our pedagogic practices.
The rapidly evolving information landscape means that education
methods and practices must evolve and adapt accordingly.
The more teaching methods, teaching styles
and teaching techniques that a teacher is familiar with and
understands, the more valuable that teacher will be it the
classroom. And it’s not just knowing about the many ways of
teaching but more importantly showing students the many ways of
“An educated person is someone who knows how to
learn and continually learns”.
What's the point of having
standards for a dysfunctional and inadequate education?
That's like having standards for child abuse. It's wrong to
begin with. It's like someone with serious brain damage trying
to perform surgery on your brain. How can you ever create good
teachers using the same information and knowledge that creates
ignorance? First you have to define what is the
best information and knowledge
that is needed and then teach it.

To judge education success by reading and math

Lunatics are Running the Asylum
Just because your school has closed or your
teachers are incompetent does not mean that your chances of a
good education are gone. It just means that you were looking in
the wrong place. 80% of your education is here on the Internet.
Even if you go to a good school or have a so-called “good
teacher”, 80% of your education is still here on the Internet.

We spend billions of dollars
on education and a lot of that money is being wasted,
but waste does not mean cuts,
it means that there has to be improvements.
Education cost money, but ignorance costs more.
774 million people in the
world are illiterate and two thirds are women.
Low health literacy cost the U.S. 238 billion per year.
About 30 million people, 14 percent of the US population 16 and
older, have trouble with basic reading and writing.
18 million adults don’t read well enough to earn a living wage.
63% of prison inmates can’t read.
Our defective education system as it stands is creating children
with learning disabilities
, but still it's better then nothing
because luckily some students do make it through and achieve on
their own. And now to make this situation even worse some
leaders are cutting education budgets.
This is like seeing people starving to death and then deciding
to produce less food. 36,000 teachers could lose their jobs in
California, 20,000 in Illinois, 16,600 in New York. And not only
cutting teachers, but cutting programs, cutting school hours,
enlarging classes, closing schools and all to save money.
Ignorant people making ignorant choices, another reason why
education improvements are extremely important. The same leaders
who failed to make the necessary educational improvements are
now just cutting services that they promised to protect.

Too much School work
is another reason
why education needs a complete overhaul. Learning isn't
stressful, what's stressful is a dysfunctional,
incoherent education system that overloads kids with schoolwork
which is abusive and ignorant because it doesn't even produce
intelligent people, it only produces mindless slaves who don't
even have enough knowledge and information to correctly analyze
themselves or the world around them, thus it ends up causing
more problems then it solves.
So the parents and the kids are just victims. They believe that
taking on more school work or taking advanced placement courses
will improve their lives, but all it does is lead them into a
hole and that traps them in debt, emotionally and literally. You
have to take a strong look at what you're learning and why
you're learning it? What kind of human do you want to be and how
will you benefit the world? Students don't have time to waste
learning things of little value or things they will not use
enough that justifies the time and effort given. You have to
have balance in your life between learning and living. You don't
want to spend all your time
learning if all you end up doing is spend all your time working,
especially if the work you do does not benefit society. If you
experience life you will have no life.
All text books should be
available for digital download for
Laptops or Netbooks
flash drives, so that every student can study when ever they
can. Plus they don't have to worry about carrying all those
books. Plus digital textbooks can be updated easily so learning
can keep pace with progress.

The true aim of education should be more about
Implanting a Will and Facility for Learning, to develop
We have to teach students
how to develop
. How to develop
conceptual thinking, abstract conceptualizing, and analytical
reasoning. How to Develop the ability to approach problems and
situations logically instead of reacting to problems and
situations illogically. How to develop mental-thinking-cognitive
skills. How to develop the ability to seek solutions to problems
instead of just complaining about problems. How to develop
intellectual curiosity. How to seek truth, to effect change. How
to gain moral and character development. How to attain
intellectual, physical and spiritual or emotional progress. How
to empower people to seek a more just world. How to develop the
ability to observe and analyze situations, compare results,
anticipate consequences, and make decisions based upon firm
commitment to goals, ideals and ethics. How to develop
processes for selecting the best and
rejecting the worst elements contained in the various value
systems. How to provide
students with the intellectual resources that enable them to
make informed and responsible judgments about difficult matters
of moral importance. How to create thinkers who are
positive influences on society instead of creating unconscious
materialistic consumers who are unaware of their true
impact and unaware of their true potential.
All students should ask their teachers what they think is the
true purpose education so that all definitions can be examined
Before you start learning something new, ask these questions…Why
are you learning this? How will this knowledge be used? When
will this knowledge be most likely used? How will this knowledge
be stored in your psyche?
It is the responsibility of the teacher to inform students the
objective of the lesson.
We have to teach
more then the traditional disciplines such as literature,
history, science and mathematics. We need more Purpose-Guided
Education, Inquiry-Based Learning, Contemplative Education and
provide Learning Contracts and Personalized Student Learning Plans while
at the same time avoiding curriculum overload.
The process approach to education is requiring new forms of
student assessment. Students demonstrate their skills, assess
their own learning, and evaluate the processes by which this
learning has been achieved by preparing portfolios, learning and
research logs, and using procedures.

encompasses many pedagogical approaches differing from mainstream
pedagogy. Such alternative learning environments may be found within
state, charter, and independent schools as well as home-based learning
environments. Many educational alternatives emphasize small class sizes,
close relationships between students and teachers and a sense of
community. The legal framework for such education varies by locality, and
determines any obligation to conform with mainstream standard tests and
grades. Alternative pedagogical approaches may include different
structures, as in the open classroom, different teacher-student
relationships, as in the Quaker and free schools, and/or differing
curricula and teaching methods, as in the Waldorf and Montessori schools.

Principal Aims and Purposes.
There are two principal aims and four main purposes set out in the National
National Curriculum England, Wales and Northern Ireland
school curriculum should aim to provide opportunities for all pupils to
learn and to achieve. The school curriculum should develop enjoyment
of, and commitment to, learning as a means of encouraging and stimulating
the best possible progress and the highest attainment for all pupils. It
should build on pupils' strengths, interests and experiences and develop
their confidence in their capacity to learn and work independently and
collaboratively. It should equip them with the essential learning skills
of literacy, numeracy, and information and communication technology, and
promote an enquiring mind and capacity to think rationally. The school
curriculum should contribute to the development of pupils' sense of
identity through knowledge and understanding of the spiritual, moral,
social and cultural heritages of Britain's diverse society and of the
local, national, European, Commonwealth and global dimensions of their
lives. It should encourage pupils to appreciate human aspirations and
achievements in aesthetic, scientific, technological and social fields,
and prompt a personal response to a range of experiences and ideas. By
providing rich and varied contexts for pupils to acquire, develop and
apply a broad range of knowledge, understanding and skills, the curriculum
should enable pupils to think creatively and critically, to solve problems
and to make a difference for the better. It should give them the
opportunity to become creative, innovative, enterprising and capable of
leadership to equip them for their future lives as workers and citizens.
It should also develop their physical skills and encourage them to
recognize the importance of pursuing a healthy lifestyle and keeping
themselves and others safe.Aim 2:
The school curriculum will aim to promote pupils' spiritual, moral, social
and cultural development and prepare all pupils for the opportunities,
responsibilities and experiences of life. The school curriculum should
promote pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and, in
particular, develop principles for distinguishing between right and wrong.
It should develop their knowledge, understanding and appreciation of their
own and different beliefs and cultures, and how these influence
individuals and societies. The school curriculum should pass on enduring
values, develop pupils' integrity and autonomy and help them to be
responsible and caring citizens capable of contributing to the development
of a just society. It should promote equal opportunities and enable pupils
to challenge discrimination and stereotyping. It should develop their
awareness and understanding of, and respect for, the environments in which
they live, and secure their commitment to sustainable development at a
personal, local, national and global level. It should also equip pupils as
consumers to make informed judgments and independent decisions and to
understand their responsibilities and rights. The school curriculum should
promote pupils' self-esteem and emotional wellbeing and help them to form
and maintain worthwhile and satisfying relationships, based on respect for
themselves and for others, at home, school, work and in the community.
It should develop their ability to relate to others and work for the
common good. It should enable pupils to respond positively to
opportunities, challenges and responsibilities, to manage risk and to cope
with change and adversity. It should prepare pupils for the next steps in
their education, training and employment and equip them to make informed
choices at school and throughout their lives, enabling them to appreciate
the relevance of their achievements to life and society outside school,
including leisure, community engagement and employment.

We need to give kids the
facts, the necessary skills, and give them our most valuable
information and knowledge that they need, and then get out of the
way so they can fix the problems that we created. If we don't do
this kids will just end up being part of the problem just like
so many others. Kids are intelligent, if you give them the right
tools they can fix anything. As soon as kids understand and
figure out what work needs to be done, they will do it gladly.
Because it will not just benefit themselves but it will also
benefit future generations as well. They will create their own
jobs, jobs that
make a difference
We must remember that
intelligence is not enough
. Intelligence plus
the goal of true education. The complete education gives one not
only power of concentration, but worthy objectives upon which to
concentrate. The broad education will, therefore, transmit to
one not only the accumulated knowledge of the race but also the
If we are not careful, our colleges will produce a group of
with immoral acts. Be careful, "brethren!" Be careful, teachers! -
The most important thing
about teaching is saving the students time
from having to make
the same mistakes as earlier generations have made, or from
wasting time by not learning the right things at the right time.
You want the students to be more intelligent then pervious
generations. Since all life forms advance and evolve from
learning, that means that humans can also advance and evolve
from learning, as we have, but not at the rate or the quality
that we have come to know. Teaching should be more like "Here's
what we have learned so far and here are the mistakes that we
have made." We must do everything in our power to prepare our
young for life.
People shouldn't have to
live entire life in order to learn from a lifetime of mistakes,
especially when they can easily learn about these mistakes in
school when they're young, where a lifetime of mistakes turns
into a lifetime of opportunities.
Most people don't fully
understand that they have incredible abilities. They have the
potential to accomplish almost anything they put their mind to,
and all we need to do is teach people how to learn more about
their abilities and how to use them effectively. "We are aware of human
potential and the powers of the human brain. Inadequate
education is not the fault of the teachers but the fault of the
curriculum. Excellent curriculum creates excellent teachers,
which in turn creates excellent students."
We want to educate children
so they don't grow up to make the same mistakes that we're
making now...so there's your problem, you can't teach children
how to avoid mistakes that you're making
until you realize that
you're making mistakes
, and when you correctly define these
mistakes, you then have to solve the problem that will keep you from
repeating these mistakes, and the show and explain to everyone how you did
it. And that's how a lesson is born. Classroom Management
Though humans have been on earth for thousands of years, we are just
beginning to understand. And just in the last 100 years we have learned
more then we have learned in the past 10,000 years. So all children should
be taught that we as a species are just beginning to be aware of how many
problems we have created. And that they have the power to create a better
world, that's if we start to educate all children fully and completely.
purpose of education is to make ignorance nearly impossible so that
will be so few,
that even if
we do make some mistakes, we will simply see our mistakes as
just a freak accident, a temporary glitch or a simple error in
judgment. So we end up
either laughing at our stupid actions, or we just end up solving this problem and learning
from it. Pure Logic."
"Schools are not preparing kids. So schools will be responsible for all
the mistakes that students make and all the
they will fail to take, so basically most every
school has blood on their hands."

would be a great idea. We should also abolish union
rules that protect unqualified, ineffective and corrupt teachers
and administrators. We need to improve ineffective schools by
firing unqualified, ineffective administrators and teachers that
fail to educate students. There are schools and teachers who are
producing better education results with less money then the
schools who are receiving a lot more money then they deserve
So this is not just about money it's more about quality and
effectiveness. Another film to see is
Waiting for Superman
which also shows how horrible our education system is.

The only thing they should be negotiating is what’s best for
children’s education, period. You shouldn't haggle with
children's future. What are you trying to say to kids, that when
you grow up you become a selfish greedy scumbag? You’re wrong on
so many levels that it’s totally disgusting, disgraceful and
pitiful. Your ignorance is so ignorant that you don’t even know
how ignorant you are. Your leader acts like she's a

for workers rights, but not at the expense of children. You
cannot justify treating children this way. Education is the most
important thing we have. I'm sorry for these horrible and
demeaning words. Being cruel and name calling is not me. It's
embarrassing and childish. But I'm really disappointed in adults
who claim they care about students. A poor
education does so much damage in so many ways, you cannot put a
price tag on life. And I know that teachers unions are not the
only ones to blame. There's problems with all areas of society
when it comes to
this issue. But the teachers union has the power to make a big

I'm not being critical of teachers, just
critical of the teaching process.
You can't blame the teachers, that's like
blaming the soldier for killing, which makes no sense. Of course
we need people to follow orders, but more importantly we also
need people to question why? We need to follow orders, but not
blindly follow the same orders over and over, especially when
you know the outcome is bad and not beneficial. That is to close
to being like a suicide bomber, from the outside it looks like
murder, because it is, but from the inside, reality has been
warped and manipulated, this is what we need to stop. We need to
start improving education and our media outlets so that every
student and citizen is fully informed about their lives and the
choices they have. I see a fantastic future, but I also see a
long transition. But humans are amazing, so I know eventually
humans will overcome their struggles, and rid the world of
costly mistakes, and create a world full of hope and prosperity.
I know that improving education will take a lot of work, but
luckily it's the kind of work that I love doing, so I am content
in knowing that I will spend the rest of my life working on ways
to improve education, and ways to improve the quality of life
for everyone on the planet, Just like millions have done before
me, and just like the quadrillions of people that will live
after me. This is human nature, to live in harmony, to live in
peace, to live.
12 years of school is enough time to include a
. If not then you are failing and definitely
not teaching correctly or effectively. The first 16 years of
every Child's life are the most critical and the most important
years in their education.
By the time a child is 5 years old
they should have enough education to be prepare for the next
level of education. If a child starts school at the age of 5,
that's 6 hours a day, 5 days a week with 2 months off in the
summer till the age of 16.
Teachers of course will not have 2
months off for they will still be in school learning to perfect
teaching methods and teaching strategies along with every
administrator and politician who will finally have to earn their
money. And just because kids will have summers and weekends off
does not mean they will not be educating themselves. For that
will be one of the things they will learn in school. Homework
will not be about making up time for teaching failures it will
be about children finally learning how important it is to
educate themselves instead of expecting someone else to do it
for them. Lets do the Math, 6 hours a day, 5 days a week, 40
weeks a year, for 12 years = 14,400 hours. If you can't graduate
students with a college education in 14,400 hours of school then
you are not just a failure but you are completely blind and
incompetent. And this is not just about the teachers but more
about the administrators and politicians who force teachers to
be morons. Teachers have to work together as a team and know
exactly what the other teacher is doing. One good hour or having
only one good teacher in a school will not be productive. I
apologize again for the name calling. I'm not trying to be mean
or disrespectful. I'm just trying to get your attention.
The Foundation for Education Choice
Even though these films below fall way short of actually addressing the real problems with
education they are still extremely important in informing people
that there are very serious problems with the way we educated children.

designed to serve more effectively the needs of the growing number of
part-time and midcareer students will increase substantially;
proportion of the qualified students, especially minorities, who enter
college, who complete at least two years, and who complete their degree
programs will increase substantially;

Incentive - Motivation
can help us simplify a decision, but we still have to explain
the causes and effects, and the reasons. Sometimes incentives
are good for people who don't have the ability to
. And sometimes incentives are good for
people who lack knowledge and are
on other people to
tell them what to do. And sometimes people don't need any
incentives at all, some people just need the reasons why, and if
the reasons why are good reasons
that's incentive enough to do it. There are many reasons why we do things.
need to be explained in more detail. We must not confuse
incentives for reasons. Incentives can never be just about the
money, because we know that money is not an accurate
measurement of value
, or reality. People shouldn't depend on
money for motivation
. Many people do things without the
motivation of money, and they are usually the happiest people,
and the most correct. Some people do things because they enjoy
doing them. Some people do things for love. Some people do
things for the benefit of others
. Some people do things because
there are many benefits, so the work they do is valuable. Some
people do things because they want to make other people smile.
Some people do things because it will benefit their health. Some
people do things because they have
calculated and measured
actions, and they have figured that these particular actions
will produce the most favorable outcome
that is currently
obtainable, so the results speak for themselves, and there's the
incentive. Incentives should always be about increasing the
chances of future prosperity
, both near future, and
far into the future
"Incentives! We don't need
, we just need the reasons, all the reasons.
And don't leave anything important out either. We need all the facts." Pay People to Learn
I'm not saying that I wouldn't except
good teachers and good schools, but....Rewarding good teachers or good
schools is simply ignorant. If you want to improve education you should
use the money to improve education curriculum so that it would create
greater quality teachers. Incentives are ignorant and very insulting. You
just can't throw money at problems. If you are a good teacher then you
don't need incentives or rewards. It's like giving people money for not
smoking instead of using the money to teach people about the dangers of
smoking. You don't use money to reward people for not being morons you use
money to stop people from becoming morons. Just remember that if you are
only teaching 10% of what is needed in education then you should be fully
aware of what you are paying for. Having better test results from an
inadequate and an incompetent education is still a failure. Paying more
does not necessarily mean that you are actually getting more. Giving
people incentives to be better at teaching ignorance will only create more
ignorant people. Not to
say Incentivizing is Bad

Using Money to Measure Value
“Good teachers are costly, but bad teachers cost more.” (Bob Talbert)
"Great teachers don't matter if they're not teaching the necessary information and
knowledge that helps create intelligent students. And
besides, you will never have enough great teachers in the first
place if you never have an effective curriculum that creates
great teachers, or intelligent people."
End Teacher Abuse
"A bad education is like a stray bullet, everyone becomes a possible victim."
should not be
about money, incentives should be about increased potential and
abilities. Money is corrupted, so to use money as an incentive
for teaching is to say that you are ignorant and that all you
are teaching is more ignorance.
If healthy food was the
least expensive food in the store then poor people would buy
more of this healthy food and thus become healthier
. But it's
the opposite, unhealthy food is cheaper in the stores, thus poor
people have more health problems because of it, and end up
paying more in the end by way of increased health costs, lost
productivity and lost potential. So if you are going to use
money as an incentive you better do it the right way, or you
will end up causing more harm then good. But this of course is
not saying that having money is better because we all know that
money does not equal intelligence. Because a lot of people with
money buy bad foods that end up destroying their health so
gradually that they never expect poor health until it's too
late. Paying people to do the right thing is not as effective as
teaching people what the right thing is, and why the right thing
is so important. Because people who have money are just as
ignorant as the people who don't have money. You want to use
money to make people more intelligent, you don't want to use
money to make people more dependent or more ignorant.

When they ask for the research that
proves that BK101
is a higher quality education, I just say this,
the research for your education the way it is now says this,
your education is so inadequate that things are extremely bad
for 100's of millions of people. Murder, crime, corruption,
suffering, destruction, homelessness, starvation, your education is in a sense some kind
of a poison, and BK101 is the
, if not, it will surly be one of the greatest
that you have ever seen. The bottom line is, people
want to learn, and if your not helping, you're hurting, so you
either get out of the way, or help us teach this world into a
better future for everyone. You can't stop people from knowing,
God wants us to know, that is why God gave us a brain, use it or
lose it. So, Put up or shut up. Show your proof, show your
justification. The evidence that a high quality education is
very beneficial is all around us, so it's not like we have no
evidence. And we know what a poor education does, so let's get

I can teach how to use a hammer. But just
knowing how to use a hammer will not help you understand yourself or the

know one fully understands what education should be, or how effective it
Going to school may be better then

When someone asks "How do you know?" I answer, "How can I not
Know?" I don't know everything, but that's the plan, which is to
know everything. The goal is intelligence, and when problems
happen, we solve them. We should always have goals and we should
always make plans, but we should have goals and plans that we
can share together, I like these 5...To Know Everything, To Become Intelligent, To Solve Every
Problem, To Live Well, To Love.
BK101 is not making outrageous claims
like other schools, we have the enough knowledge and
information that proves that we can develop every student to be
intelligent, and those intelligent people will help reconfirm
what human intelligence is, and what human intelligence is not.
Like a type of positive feed back loop
, the person
continually learns throughout their life.
If a school makes a claim that they are preparing your child for
life, they are lying. Ask them, where in the curriculum does
this knowledge exist? And, how is the understanding of this
knowledge measured? Because being prepared for life is not a
process that is clearly defined, so there is no proof? So, Put
up or shut up. Schools mostly make this false claim to take your
And if a school claims that your child will do better on
standardized tests, then they are selling you more snake oil.
Standardized tests are an insult to intelligence. Standardized
tests mostly measure conformity, and not intelligence.
Schools like to show famous people who graduated from their
school, but none of those famous people are hero's. The true
impact that famous people had on life is not measured by pros
and cons, and it is not measured by all the cause and effects
that came from their life. Their life is mostly a measurement of
popularity or money, two things that have no value on their own,
and to compare yourself to things that are not valuable, does
not make you more valuable. Did those particular famous people
create a positive difference in life and really improve life in
the way that they claim? How much learning did these famous
people do outside of their school? Because no one school teaches
everything a student needs to learn. And on top of that, no
famous person, or anyone, makes it on their own. So a
is the combination of several people, like parents,
friends, teachers, and even all the people they have come in
contact with. and everyone one else who wrote in a book that
they read, or has been in a movie that they have seen. The
majority of knowledge a person has, comes from other people, we
create very little knowledge on our own. But that very little
knowledge quickly adds up when we combine it with the entire
history of human knowledge .
Schools have to stop lying to people, and to themselves. We have
to start acting like responsible adults. If we really want to
prepared our children for life, then lets do it, and not pretend
to do it. Under educating students hurts everyone, and
everything. And that proof can be seen everywhere on this
planet. Ignorance has infected almost every inch of this earth.
We can no longer afford to stay on this path.
Students of BK101 will do more then just do great on inadequate
standardized tests, BK101 students will improve tests and make
them more effective. Students of BK101 will be more then just be
prepared for life, BK101 students will improve life and actually
define what being prepared for life is really about. BK101
students will also learn how to recognize and analyze all
information, including propaganda, especially knowing that
propaganda can come from within
as well as
from outside ourselves
. BK101 students will not be
, BK101 students will be fully educated in the
skills involved with being able to work together as civilized
people. BK101 students will be free thinkers, able to solve any
problem. BK101 students will not be discourage by the struggles
of life, they will instead see our struggles as opportunities
for improvements. BK101 students will improve life, BK101
students will not just sit around and watch the world die, they
will create a better future instead of just waiting for one, or
dreaming about one.
BK101 is not in the business of creating more conformists. We
are not creating people who are unaware of the true nature of
the problems that are plaguing this world. We are not creating
people who just end up being accessories to the criminal
elements that murder millions of innocent people every year.
"There's too much emphasis on
compliance, and not enough on engagement."
We are in the business of creating the most intelligent humans
that this world has ever seen. People who actively participate
in improving the world, repairing the damage that has been done
and stopping the damage being done now and in the future.
We know for a fact that learning exists
because people are learning every day. But most people don't
understand the process of learning or the power of learning,
this we need to improve. I am a learner, yes, I can be an
a*shole at times, and yes, I can be stupid at times, but I am a
learner. So no matter how slow or how painful the process of
learning can be, I still learn. Thank you God!
Graduating high school and going to college is not success,
unless those accomplishments are stepping stones to a higher
calling. One where the person engages the world and seeks out
improvements, instead of just taking from the world and stealing
from future generations just to pursue your own selfish
lifestyle, one that does more harm then good.
Famous People who Dropped Out of School
Albert Einstein dropped out of high school at age 15. Deciding
to continue his education a year later, Einstein took the
entrance exam to the prestigious Swiss Federal Institute of
Technology, but failed. He returned to high school, got his
diploma, and then passed the university's entrance exam on his
Harry Houdini, Ehrich Weiss dropped out of school at age 12,
working several jobs, including locksmith's apprentice.
the 7th U.S. President, dropped out.
Abraham Lincoln left school at 12 to help his family farm.
Thomas Edison dropped out after only three months of formal
education and was home schooled.
Benjamin Franklin spent two years at the Boston Latin School
before dropping out at age ten and going to work for his father.
Walt Disney dropped out of high school at 16.
David Karp (Tumblr) dropped out of high school at 14.
Princess Diana dropped out of school at 16.
Robert De Niro.
Al Pacino dropped out of his New York high school to pursue
Jim Carrey dropped out of high school at just 16.
Aretha Franklin dropped out at 15.
Quentin Tarantino dropped out at 15.
Robert Downey Jr.
Bill Gates dropped out of Harvard.
Mark Zuckerberg left Harvard to start Facebook.
Steve Jobs dropped out of Reed College to become the father of
all things Apple.
Oprah dropped out of Tennessee State University.
F. Scott Fitzgerald left Princeton University because of poor grades.
John Lennon was expelled from Liverpool College, so he joined a band.
Dropping out does not mean that
you stop your education
or does it mean that you have given up, or does it mean that you
can't recover and regain the potential that was
by a dysfunctional education
It means that you understand that education is your
responsibility. I can track my self
, thank you
I'm a High school Drop Out.
But it's not that I dropped out of High School
, it's more like
I had to fire my school
and let my school go because it was not fulfilling my
education needs. So I had to
break up with my school. Besides that, I can learn more on my own and I
can also learn faster own my
own. Of course this does not mean that I don't seek professional advice or need skilled labor every
now and then, it's just that I understand my capabilities a lot more now
then I use to.
It really doesn't
matter if you drop out of school
. All that matters is that you
continue to learn
. It's all the reading and learning that you do outside
of school that ends up being the single most important factor when
studying how to receive a degree, or when studying how to succeed in life
and how to succeed
in your work and in your relationships. There is not a lot of learning
done in schools. All the most valuable learning is done outside school,
but only if you have access to the worlds most
valuable knowledge and information
, and also understand the
stages of learning
So don't ever give up. Don't let the things that you did not do just yet, stop you from doing something amazing.
