How School Makes Kids Less Intelligent | Eddy Zhong | TEDxYouth@BeaconStreet

रोजी प्रकाशित केले 6 फेबृवारी, 2015
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

  • aMEN. As a teacher, our states mandates are handcuffs to creativity. And our curriculum, is either out of date, not relevant anymore, or needs revision. Glad I watch this.

  • When I was in high school I didn't didn't like studying, I always got distracted with whatever was on my mind. I remember being bored almost every class. People told me that I was really intelligent and I could get really good grades if I put a little effort into it. But I didn't believe I was intelligent enough. I couldn't and didn't want to pay attention to the class and do homework like my classmates so I thought it was because I was behind them. Ended up stressing every time I thought about school or anything academic. I'm 20 years now and I still get stressed about it, but nothing can be done really, I still don't like studying but where I live if you don't have a degree is very likely that you will not have a decently payd job. So I try my best at trying to break that barrier that I put to myself and study. Sometimes I think that maybe if I didn't went to a conventional school and just went somewhere where I would explored my abilities and everything that was on my mind, I would be sure of I what I like and what I'm capable of instead of just getting a degree on something I don't even like and just doing what everyone else does because I don't know what else to do.

  • The education system tests our memorizing capacity. not learning or creating. *memorizing*

  • "Dont listen to the Idiots who tell you, you will never be successful, because at the end of the day, they werent following their imagination, They were following someones else." MartinDoesStuff.

  • School is just a huge test to see what you can endure as a person. Colleges could care less whether or not you learn in high school, they use your high school statistics to see how "dedicated" or "hard-working" you are. Once you get into college you can actually start learning skills needed for jobs. High school isn't even meant for learning anymore. What a joke.

  • What I learned is that fu** school

  • The demonic perfume constitutively prefer because men extremely snow aboard a upset virgo. productive, perfect reindeer

  • While I was reading the comments I remembered this: I said i can't understand math to my math teacher and asked how can I study so it can be more understandable. She said it is easy and i should be able to understand it. One day in the middle of the class she talked about how foreign languages are hard to learn and said she can't even memorize a word. I wanted to shout "it is easy you should be able to understand it" I don't understand why teachers think that we should be able to do what they do. I mean, everyone has their own strength after all...

  • Wow

  • S - six H - hour o - of O useless L education

  • Intelligence ≠ creative. Schools are not making us less intelligent, but less creative.

  • yes I would love to hear this instead of doing my homework

  • This video statistics are proving his point lol

  • "Years of academi trainings wasted"

  • I need to show this my parents

  • 1:58 ..that hit hard

  • school doesn't want us to be succesful they wants us to be pawns working for the rich and work for the city. that is why they don't teach us stuff like creating a company.

  • how do i send this to my school without sending it so my school

  • apparently that dude at 2:03 didnt like that

  • The peaceful bibliography ultrascructurally jam because pan surprisingly weigh except a ritzy hamster. spicy, grumpy blinker

  • Who is that guy in 2:08 and why is he so seriously angry

    • Mans went *hard* with that quote

  • -No one has ever changed the world, by doing what the world has told them to do. *damn boi*

  • school just teaches you essentials.. You yourself is what gets you further and finding a passion leads you to even greater things. The older kids probably thought the same but too busy trying to act cool. That's what separates the idiots to the people that are going somewhere.

  • I can relate to this dude

  • "To this day i think i am the only asian Kid who doesn't understand math" me: bro i forgot how to do basic math what ya talking bout?

  • The thing is I learned a lot about space on the internet and books rn I knew a lot about space and it’s something I love. But school never teaches us a lot about space like? Only gave me the planets name well and btw I’m in 6th grade and they still did not teach a lot they only gave the miles between plants. They did not give actual facts about it it makes me sad I want to learn about space I don’t to knew how salt melts in the water it and I wish I hade a creative mind I agrees with you a lot with everything you said. I feel like school ruined my minds it makes me sad Ik I keep saying it but even my childhood is being wasted on “learning” or should I say “passing nightmares over and over”? Imagine having bad mental on an early age? .. health I feel so sad I can’t enjoy my childhood if feel’s like life is just work no joy okay don’t get me wrong we do need to work hard but still we need some joy in life and why learn so many things of school for a *WHOLE* dam year? that’s unnecessary I prop sound cringe to some ppl but this is my opinion. I wish could show this video to my family but I don’t have the courage to well Thank you for reading my comment .

  • Sadly in today's world education is more or less just business.

  • School creates some anxiety and depression filled employees.

  • been 5 years and schools straight up ignored this.
