Can You Measure an Education? Can You Define Life’s Meaning? | The Creativity Post

The educational divide. I always detested the idea that children are empty shells to be filled with unintegrated facts. I was a high achiever academically but it meant next to nothing to me because my actual life sucked so bad. I drew into myself and began learning on my own. I find my own meaning and only then felt a true sense of accomplishment and worth. All of life is an opportunity to learn and that attitude has done more for me than rote learning. Perhaps one day my dream for a Life Academy will come true. This article is a good one to foster critical discussion of the role of education and possible changes for it. http://www.creativitypost.com/education/can_you_measure_an_education_can_you_define_lifes_meaning

  1. I feel the same way. When I reached inside of myself for answers, that’s where I found life, not the crap they teach in schools. 🙂

    1. Amen! It just seems so empty. I couldn’t connect the classroom to the awful things I was going through in my personal life. The teachers were so nice and always tried to help, but they were limited by all of the rules and regulations.
