albert einstein once said everybody's a genius but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid ladies and gentlemen of the jury today on trial we have modern day schooling glad you could come not only does he make fish climb trees but also makes them climb down and do a 10 mile run tell me school are you proud of the things you've done turning millions of people into robots

do you find that fun do you realize how many kids relate to that fish swimming upstream in class never finding their gifts thinking they are stupid believing they are useless well the time has come no more excuses i call school to the stand and accuse him of killing creativity individuality and being intellectually abusive he's an ancient institution that has outlived his usage so your honor this concludes my opening statement and if i may present the evidence of my

case i will prove it proceed exhibit a here's a modern day phone recognize it here's a fall from 150 years ago big difference right stay with me here's a car from today and here's a car from 150 years ago big difference right well get this here's a classroom of today and here's a class we used 150 years ago now ain't that a shame in literally more than a century nothing has changed yet you claim to prepare students for the future but with evidence like that i must ask
01:32
do you prepare students for the future or the past i did a background check on you and let the record show that you were made to train people to work in factories which explains why you put students in straight roles nice and neat tell them sit still raise your hand if you want to speak give them a short break to eat and for eight hours a day tell them what to think oh and make them compete to get an a a letter which determines product quality hence grade a of meat i get it back then times were different we all have a past i myself am no gandhi but today we don't need to make robot

zombies the world has progressed and now we need people who think creatively innovatively critically independently with the ability to connect see every scientist will tell you that no two brains are the same and every parent with two or more children will confirm that claim so please explain why you treat students like cookie cutter frames or snapback hats giving them this one-size-fits-all crap watch your lamp sorry your honor but if a doctor prescribed the exact same medicine to all of his patients the results would be

tragic so many people will get sick yet when it comes to school this is exactly what happens this educational malpractice where one teacher stands in front of 20 kids each one having different strengths different needs different gifts different dreams and you teach the same thing the same way that's horrific ladies and gentlemen the defendant should not be acquitted this may be one of the worst criminal offenses ever to be committed and let's mention the way you treat your employees objection overruled i want to hear this it's a shame i mean teachers have the most important
03:06
job on the planet yet they're underpaid no wonder so many students are short changed let's be honest teachers should earn just as much as doctors because a doctor can do heart surgery and save the life of a kid but a great teacher can reach the heart of that kid and allow him to truly live see teachers are heroes that often get blamed but they're not the problem they work in a system without many options or rights curriculums are created by policy makers most of which have never taught a day in their life just obsessed with
03:37
standardized tests they think bubbling in a multiple choice question will determine success that's outlandish in fact these tests are too crude to be used and should be abandoned but don't take my word for it take frederick j kelly the man who invented standardized testing who said and i quote these tests are too crude to be used and should be abandoned ladies and gentlemen of the jury if we continue down this road the results will be lethal i don't have much faith in school but i do have faith in people and if we can customize healthcare cars

and facebook pages then it is our duty to do the same for education to upgrade it change it do away with school spirit cause that's useless unless we're working to bring the spirit out of each and every student that should be our task no more common core instead let's reach the core of every heart in every class sure math is important but no more than oratory dance let's give every gift an equal chance i know this sounds like a dream but countries like finland are doing impressive things they have shorter
04:39
school days teachers make a decent wage homework is non-existent and they focus on collaboration instead of competition but here's the kicker boys and girls their educational system outperforms every other country in the world other places like singapore are succeeding rapidly schools like montessori programs like khan academy there is no single solution but let's get moving because while students may be 20 of our population they are 100 of our future so let's attend to their

dreams and there's no telling what we can achieve this is a world in which i believe a world where fish are no longer forced to climb trees i'll rest my case [Music] hey guys my name is prince ea and i want to say thank you so much for watching my video but now i want to know what you think how can we together create a more efficient effective and just better future of learning i want you to
