Children are the leaders and the future of generations that will be making the key national and global decisions of tomorrow. It’s imperative that these children receive the correct education to help pave the way for future generations.
The school system is letting children down, and social justice warriors are all for it.
Back just two decades ago, a university degree was a big deal. You could get a job with your high school diploma. Nowadays, everyone has a university degree, and you seemingly have to have a degree to have a good job.
One problem is that schools are allowing way too many people to choose their own path regardless of career opportunities, which leaves large numbers of graduates for very few jobs. This leaves large numbers of graduates with massive student debt and little to no job prospects. This is all because schools are not doing a good job of funneling students to fields of need, and also proper and adequate teaching and raising of awareness about jobs of the future, fields of need, and especially the trades.
Trade jobs are great jobs. They are high paying and there is a shortage of them. Trade jobs are going nowhere in the future, but few people are entering the trades, why? Because everyone is so intent on getting a degree from university.
In addition to not focusing and teaching subject areas where professionals are needed, schools are also focusing on courses that children will never use or need in their lifetime.
Schools are focusing on subjects such as sexual education and feminist studies, instead of focusing on the basics like arithmetic, science, and English.
The erosion of the core curriculum begins with the introduction of subjects that are best taught at home from the parent and/or guardian, rather than the school, and has lead to the steady drop in test scores over the past years.
The schools main job is to prepare a child for the future, either continued education or the workplace.
In addition, schools haven’t been helping students mature. In a video from PragerU, one student at Haverford College explains how working at McDonald’s actually taught her more about life than Haverford College.
Schools nowadays avoid the basic and necessary skill of problem solving. Whenever a student faces a problem, schools always offer detoxes and emotional support, but one thing schools don’t teach is how to actually solve the problem.
In the real world, there are no safe spaces, and you’ll get fired if you complain to your manager in your workplace about feeling anxious with many orders or customers, and stressed that there is a lot of work to do.
Schools aren’t teaching the fundamental key to everyday life; problem solving. Each student should be taught and learn how to solve issues on their own.
Schools need to do a better job of funnelling students where careers are needed, and also need to teach and focus on the subjects that will really pave the way for a students future, and problem solving to lead towards a successful life.
The future of our children is important. It’s imperative they receive proper and adequate education, and are placed in areas of good quality jobs, ready to lead the next generation.
