I wasn't taught how to get a job, but i can remember dissecting a frog. I wasn't taught how to pay tax, but i know loads about Shakespeare's classics. I was never taught how to vote they devoted that time to defining isotopes. I wasn't taught how to look after my health but mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell. Never spent a lesson on current events. Instead I studied The Old American West. I was never taught what laws there are. I was never taught what laws there are. Let me repeat - I was not taught the laws for the country I live in, but i know how Henry the 8th killed his women, Divorced beheaded died, divorced beheaded survived, glad thats in my head instead of financial advice. I was shown the wavelengths of different hues of light, but i was never taight my human righys. Apparently there's 30, do you know them? I don't. Why the heck can't we both recite them by rote? I know igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks. Yet i don't know squat about trading stocks. Or how money works at all - where does it come from? How does the thing that motivated the world function? Not taught how to budget and disburse my earnings. I was too busy there rehearsing cursive. Didn't learn how much it costs to raise a kid, or what an affidavit is, but i spent days on what the quadratic equation is. "Negative B plus or minus the square root of B squared minues 4 A C over 2 A" That's insane that's absolutely insane. They made me learn that over basic first aid. Ot how to recognise the most deadly mental disorders, or diseases with preventable causes. How to buy a house with a mortgage, if i could afford it. 'Cause abstract maths was deemed more important than advice that would literally save thousands of lives. Buts it's cool, 'cause now i could tell you if the number of unnecessary deaths caused by that choice was prime. Never taught present day practical medicines but i was told what the ancient hippocratic method is. "I've got a headache, the pain is ceaseless. What should i take?" Ummm... maybe try some leaches? "Could we discuss domestic abuse and get the facts, or how to help my depressed friend with their mental state?" Ummm... no, but learn mental maths because "you won't have a calculater with you every day!" They say its not the kids, the parents are the problem. Then if you taught the kids to parent that's the problem solved then! All this advice about using a condom, but none for when you actually have a kid when you want one. I'm only fluent in this language, for serious? The rest of the world speaks two, do you think I'm an idiot? They chose the solar over the political system. So like a typical citizen now I don't know what I'm voting on. Which policies exist, or how to make them change, mais oui, je parle un peu de Francais. (but yes, i speak a little of French.) So at 18, I was expected to elect a representative for a system i had never ever been presented with.
But I won't take it!
I'll tell everyone my childhood was wasted!
I'll share it everywhere how i was "educated", and insist these pointless things.
Dont Stay In School
