In schools teachers don't teach u the exact things which is in the syllabus. Especially history which Is written by men. Actual life lessons are learnt when we go to job
You can't be on both sides. If you are claiming that the teaching in schools is fruitless, then you went to a terrible school. In general, the teaching in schools are a benefit to mankind, even if you are able to point out a few exceptions.
yeah, straight memorization is a horrible way to teach, thankfully we are slowly moving away from it.
sir, please dont comment about my school since you dont know me. I have studied from a well know school0 in Bagota , Colombia . I have passed from Colegio Jordan de Sajonia which's well known in my country and was founded in 1954. Its no way terrible nor I guess any school is terrible uncless it provides the basic education and skills required.
You all went to terrible schools. I went to school with people of all ethnic groups and nationalities. Who says you only go to class to learn from the teachers? It's a shame you don't understand the willingness of classmates to share knowledge of their culture as part of the program.
I agree with nemiroff but, schools try more on memorizing then actual productive learning. So most of the students study for exams and tests and not for gaining the knowledge. So yep. most things taught in school are pretty fruitless.
The more schools you attend, the better you will be. Not all schools have the prominence, funding or cronies of Harvard, Military academies, or even Sunday school. School doesn't just teach what the instructors are teaching. It also teaches you who your neighbors are amongst the students. You are taught to announce your name in front of those who otherwise, might not hear it while alive, or reaching the stage of life where their hearing is too bad to even listen to a teacher.
it seems that way at first because all your doing is learning isolated facts, but once you reach a certain critical mass of knowledge, everything starts clicking together into a tapestry of reality.
