What are your opinions on this video?
I genuinely want to know what this community thinks about this point, it's been pretty controversial topic both recently and when it was uploaded.

Right after I posted it in fuckin' listening thread...

Either way, has some valid points, although his ideas aren't workable with children.

I learned mortgages, finances, investing, politics, how to vote, how to get a job, how to do my taxes all because I took classes that touch those things. The information is there and there's no excuse not knowing how to do any of these things when we're I the technology age anyways.

Basically it's just an other excuse for a social reject to explain his failure in life.

Loser probably didn't get a job because his hair is red and black and long. Who the fuck would want to hire a guy like that?

this guy's a fucking reject as poopship said

it doesn't take a genius to get a job but look at his hair youre not getting a job with that

school isn't here to teach you how to do your adult life, that's up to you. school is here to give you culture and to make sure you know how to read write & count

idk about the uk but i was taught the laws of my country aswell as human rights, aswell as politics

this guy is just a fucking manchild

I don't go to public school- and I can honestly say I've learned a hell of a lot more by homeschooling than being in school. I get that not everyone can do what I'm doing- but America's school system is really shitty. He's not saying to completely drop school, he's saying the system needs to be better. Or at least, that's how I took it.

Common core won't help it k-12. Colleges and universities in both US and Canada are cesspits for insanity, stupidity and pretentiousness, but it's the bullshit you've gotta' go through to get a solid job.

Anyone who puts their mind to it can definitely go on to being a productive human being if their raised right and put their mind to it and pick courses for self-gain, and not just to graduate.

You put it perfectly, honestly. Like, I'm already thinking about what shit I wanna take in college and shit, since I'm homeschooled- thinking about that shit takes a good amount of my time.

School is supposed to introduce you to different topics and help you find out what your strengths are so you can see what you want to do in future life, not how to operate in society. That's your parents' job.

Then I am surprised that I live in a house with Internet and insurance, and how both my parents have a job.

no i mean, what if you're a person with parents that do not know how to operate in society? Or you don't have parents at all?
