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.

Seriously though, ive gotten smarter from watching yourube not from school

I think they 'teach' us subjects like maths, science, english,etc so they could find out how focused we are at detaining information and how good our commitment and dedication is, and as a result jobs will look how dedicated we are to our future jobs and our dedication is simply measured by 'Grades'

I love algebra...I plan on stopping at at least college algebra and to straight science courses I go

I don't blame the teacher necessarily but you have to admit that most of them believe that memorizing things like that makes us smarter. Going through the process to figure something out, like say a math problem, teaches us a single way of doing something.

Within the Sciences, there are way too many possibilities, so how do you tell the students all about those? Cause who knows your students wants to become a Computer scientist, a doctor, a radiologist or an engineer.

Take an example of a 5th grader who seems to be struggling with maths and makes a great mathematician once he has engaged himself with maths well enough. If he were a homeschooled child, as soon as he showed disinterest in the subject, the "understanding" parents would just drop the subject. So how can we generalize the "schooling" thing? While I do agree that we don't get to know about the available paths due to our pre-determined routes, I really wanna know how the system can be made efficient?
olystudy charms (20 часов назад)
The question that arises is: What do the schools need to do? It's easier to say that schools need to awaken the creative side of students but in practice, how would they do? There's an endless amount of knowledge in the World and a countless number of fields and possibilities. It's just not possible to first let the students experience every such path in order for them to decide what they truly wanna do in life. Almost each one of us gets down a path because we encountered it at some point in our lives. The speaker became an entrepreneur because he got to get into such competitions. Had he got into the Science Olympiad, he would have been telling how such competitions make you think scientifically. So isn't it that it all depends upon what we encountered and then among those limited options what fascinated us? Or maybe what we were forced into.

Grades are basically a measure how well you did that day... only that day or even that one hour. Since it's a very simple system then it can be very simply bypassed.
Abby Ravelo (2 дня назад)
Well yes education is the only thing our parents can gave us but "Education" isnt just going to school it has alot to offer like learning outside what school doent teach you. Its like going out on your comfort zone then the end result is Great even though he said some of you might disagree well i dont because this is exactly what ive been telling them.
Abby Ravelo (2 дня назад)
The "TITLE" says it all and im like him i dont understand Math too and yes i dont study well i failed alot of subjects too even though my parents have high expectations i do not do what they wanted me to do cause i know my purpose and thats not going to school everyday listening even though your mentally absent.

Personally, I think the more you learn then the more doors will be open for you. Even if u will never use some things u learn at school in ur lifetime it still gives u a better understanding of the world around u too.But this guy does have a point I think schools should also focus on bringing out kids’ creative sides by doing more hands on activities

Misleading title. This is just about how a teenager found his way into the business world, not about schools making kids less intelligent.
Eline Smit (4 дня назад)
He is a great speaker but I don't understand his statement, because the older children didn't like his idea but the younger children did, the older children are less intelligent? I think that's not the right conclusion to make 😐

Kid: "How do i pay my taxes?" Teacher: "Whats 5X4???" Kid: "How do i handle stress?" Teacher: "what's the square root of 39??" Kid: "How do i become successful?" Teacher: "who knows how to calculate the area of an irregular polygon?" *kid starts doodling *teacher walks up behind him and tells him to go to the principal's office. 2 years later..... kid drops out of school and starts his own business. now he is a multimillionaire.

i think that if we learn some subject in school such as math,physic,chemical,biology,in right way(i mean we know exactly what we are learning,we can explore it,we know where are they come from)i think these subject will give many advantages to our life :)

We are treated like 5 year olds at school. We have to ask for when to use the bathroom, matter fact my school is so special we even have things called "Potty Passes" (mind you I'm in 8th grade) where we can only leave class 3 times a quarter and everytime we go out we have to use one of those passes. Not to mention the teachers tell us everything we have to do and we can't experiment or do anything on our own, no creativity, nothing.

Ifonlyanime Gamer3 (17 часов назад)
+Melissa Hutchins sorry dude I didn't want to read the book that u wrote literally can u take some words out but still no hate so sorry about what I said
Melissa Hutchins (17 часов назад)
+Ifonlyanime Gamer3 I think perhaps you're confused. I take a lot of time and effort home/ life educating my child. More effort than any teacher would put in to her education. As far as school goes, I agree with you. That's why I'm not making my child go through that nonsense. It is a toxic mess at most public schools. You've totally confused me with your comment, though. So I don't know what more to say.

School is kind of like the LEGO movie. It teaches to go by instruction. The master builders are the actually intelligent ones who can think on there own and actually make an impact. Usually have bigger than stable jobs.

The oddest thing is, I remember my teacher wanted me to publish something I wrote when I was younger- but I didn’t know what publishing was. One thing I’m conflicted on is this, as well: I don’t remember a single swatch of creativity from my childhood. Sure, I had it- I just can’t remember. I wish I had more creativity, but I can’t just go squash my education-filled life down a hole to something better, when I don’t have better. I want the opportunity to have better, with my writing skills accompanying me. I’m a phenomenal (in my opinion) speller- I’ve gotten to Regionals for South Carolina. Please, don’t take this as conceited. Take this as my plea. One day, I’ll get an opportunity. And one day, I hope to be amazing.

The problem with school is that about 90% of kids in school don't actually want to learn. You can't force yourself to want to learn something. The only way to learn well is to find something you have interest in, so you will actually want to learn it. Otherwise it'll just end up as random memorized facts. This is why you can't remeber a certain math equation you learned yesterday, but remeber perfectly a thanos quote from way back in May.
