Eddy Zhong, successful technology entrepreneur, dives into the truth behind our K-12 education system. Eddy strongly believes that the education system diminishes creativity and confines children to a certain path towards success. He contends that kids are taught to believe college is a necessary step in life and that it is mandatory to achieve one's goals. His talk challenges the commonly held beliefs of our entire education structure. Eddy is the founder of Leangap, a summer program that helps high school students start their own companies Eddy is an aspiring technology entrepreneur and the founder of Blanc, a smart-watch company based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. His ideas have been featured in numerous publications and he is passionate about empowering youth to think differently. Eddy is the founder of Leangap, a summer program that helps high school students start their own companies This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

I hated school when I was young because I'm passionate about painting and it was so boring. Well I liked elementary school life, since I enjoyed life and became a risk taker. However in middle school and high school my teachers would put me down. I realised I survived and not academically successful.

What’s annoying though is that if a kid who’s really good at math sucks at Art, then teachers say “It’s ok! Not everyone is just naturally good at it!” But when a kid who’s really good at art sucks at math, teachers say “Everybody else gets this! Just pay attention and try harder, you NEED math in life!” ........ ummmm

School: When you are in AMERICA, you must speak SPANISH to EVERY SINGLE PERSON in AMERICA because they don't know ENGLISH, which is the MAIN LANGUAGE of AMERICA. So yeah, you must learn SPANISH because everyone in AMERICA, where the main language is ENGLISH, only speaks SPANISH!

Public schools are more affected than paid schools. I go to a public school and a paid music school and in the music school the teachers aren’t assholes, lessons are fun and it feels great to learn there whilst in the regular school it feels like i am suffering when i am sitting in the class

This is so true. In elementary school, i loved to draw and create art. I was so creative & had big dreams. Once in highschool, everything chance for me. I feel like a machine just memorizating information and learning useless things. I feel like my creativity and dreams slowly fade away.

Took me 3 months in math to learn proportionally changed shapes. I got the hang of it in 2 days, so the rest of those 3 months was basically me sitting in class for 55 minutes a day, and doing nothing.

I'm sure we all know this, it's mostly the government's fault that school and learning is like this. I will say, there are some teachers with more passion for teaching than others. Some will make learning fun and easy and give equal opportunity and help to their students, while some destroy he happiness inside a student's self. To those wonderful teachers who both want to show every single one of their students the real world AND do it in a way to make sure they understand, I salute and have MASSIVE RESPECT. To those who crush dreams, follow life like a one-way street and think you know everything... You don't, go educate yourself before you educate others. And to the government... Just change the syllabus or else people can get hurt. No, before more people get hurt because of you.

It really is starts from school. Parents send their children to school, not caring about what direction the school brings their kids into. Take mine for example, they always wonder why's there never an entrepreneur in the family, well sorry mom and dad, but you guys sent me to a place that directs me to be a factory worker instead of an entrepreneur, how do you guys expect that to work? It's makes me tingle really... if school didn't make anybody in the family into entrepreneurs then, why do they think it will turn me into one now while they never change their methods? Sadly most people from older generation is so stuck in the past that they couldn't see what the future needs, and thus the school system never changes. We can't rely on the old generation to change this system, our generation is the first generation ever to have the power to bring change, we have the ability to gather and spread information way faster than the earlier generations could, and this puts us in the advantage, schools couldn't limit our minds and critical thinking as much as they could with our parents with this advantage we have. So if you're not satisfied with the current education system, don't lose hope, even if we can't fix it for our own generation, we can at least make it right for our next, at least that's what I think about this case

U r absolutely right! If we didn't have to go to school, then we would have more time to learn the things that we're actually gonna use all of our lives. Like, how to be financially successful, be healthy, physically and mentally, and how to be kind and compassionate. We do want more time to do the things we're passionate about, like sports, music, theatre, etc. When are we ever going to use all these super crazy formulas, graphs, equations, and essays? Why should grades really matter? Grades and tests do not measure your intelligence. Or creativity. Everybody should be free to express themselves how they want to. And school kind of takes away that right from teens. I think that we should just learn the stuff we need to know for life kind of early, and make sure it'll stick with us. And then learn the skills necessary for our career choices later to build a successful life ahead. There could be students in honors classes who aren't actually that smart; they're just constantly pressured to get A's on everything. And there could be students in general classes who are actually very smart; they just don't learn as fast or in the same way as others. This is what needs to be understood. That every different student learns differently and at different rates. So, why should everyone in school be pressured to learn everything the same exact way? This could spark more judgement and bullying from others, too. Due to the different levels (AP, honors, merit, general, etc.) that there are for classes, and there's just not enough time to build more self-confidence, strength, kindness, and determination.

We're only so young for so long, that we need to make the most of our lives having fun and making memories with friends, doing the activities we're passionate about, and doing stuff that will actually be essential for our futures.

A lot of people are forgetting that high school does prepare you for life in key ways. If you are responsible and, well perhaps lets say you don't particularly care for what you've learned, you are given large workloads with the end result being good grades. Being given these large workloads and being able to execute them on time prepares you for a job where you will be given a workload with an expected finishing time. Mathematics will help those who wish to go to college to become an engineer. Literature and English is great to expand your vocabulary and give you perspective. Being able to appreciate science is important to know your place in the world, your impact, biological footprint, etc.
Långstrump gang (8 дней назад)
Honestly, school is just about trying to get through it, more than it's about actually learning useful stuff. "Go to school to learn" has turned into "go to school to get good grades" becasue we learn far more on the internet about stuff we actually value and care about than we do in class. That's why a lot of smart kids have difficulty finding a motivation to go so they end up depressed at home. Parents don't get this tho because they think the school system is flawless and unquestionable

Everyday we go to school. We listen to the teachers yells at us for getting something wrong. We get yelled at for having to go to the bathroom, then get questioned why we didn’t go before? We don’t learn NEW things, we memorize things that have already happened, shouldn’t we learn things that can help us for the future?

in our school (I’m 13) and we learn what college students learn at the moment we stay at school till 7 on weekdays, and we go to school on Saturday as well and we have 4 hour exams without a break each week . The reason is that next year we are going to high school and obviously you have to do an exam to go to a good qualified one . But the exam is hard Af so you gotta study hard ~_~
