  1. I found this to be very insightful. Many times I have thought to myself; "if only the education system was up to par with the new generation." This video practically matched my ideas, but had an amusing aesthetic stimulant.

  2. I like what this speaker has to say. He seems like he really knows what he is talking about unlike alot of people. One of the best things that i think he said was that in the past if you had a degree you were Guaranteed a job but now if you had a degree you are not guaranteed the job and a person without the degree could also get the job.

  3. I believe that the message in this video is very true. It is very difficult to just group kids together to learn the samething when some kids learn faster and know more than others. I think we should let them learn what they want and the speed they want.

  4. I think this video is great. It’s really confusing though. I think it’s a good thing that it’s talking about how some people learn differently and slower or faster than others, and it’s true. Some people know and learn more than others. Some want to not learn. Most people think they’re not smart if they can’t do it, but maybe they’re not trying hard enough.

  5. I think that more teachers should teach kids things like that. I also think that if kids are getting ready to go to a new grade then they should have to take a test that would show what grade they should really be in and how smart they really are.

  6. This video is just mind blowing, I mean for the fact that someone could come up with something like this is just crazy. I think that it would be pretty cool if there was some kind of test that put kids into a class, like if you’re smarter than this then you move up to this or something like that.

  7. They shouldn’t just think that all kids at the same age are in the same boat of smartness. They just need to test them and see where they are before they are put into classes because may be they are put into classes but they are way smarter and they get bored.

  8. We watched the video and it makes sense. Schools do technically “dumb” students down. Some students mature more than others or learn more and faster. Most of the time it is because the student isn’t interested in what the class is offering so they ignore them or just do homework just to get by.

  9. We watched the video and I really liked it as well as the rest of my class. It blew my mind and I didn’t even know what to say or think about it. It was a video that tells you how it is and I liked it a lot.

  10. How can we make changes to the way we do things to reflect the ideas touched on in this video while still operating inside of the constructs of a very rigid public education system?
