Empty Achievement

11 Feb

The generation of standardized people has come! They’ll be prepared for every test that comes their way! Too bad it’s robbing them from understanding real life.

I feel sorry for the kids just knowing the fear and confusion that will devastate them when they discover there are no “prep books” for acing real life choices. They will have to figure it all out by themselves, and they won’t know how because they will not have been “programmed” to even pursue, much less attain, the skills required for adult-level thinking. This is so discouraging, especially because it’s not even their fault.

One of my former professors posted an article on this ever-so-popular curriculum emphasis which degrades our academic society from the bottom up. See Full article.
