A Post with a Lack of a Title

I’ve mentioned a few times that I need a spark of inspiration to write.

And, well, it seems that music helps.

Some calming music coupled with a bit of schoolwork that feels as if it’s going on forever and maybe a bit of self reflection thrown in as well.

Anyway, here you have what was originally a response to a short debate with a fellow student.

“I feel like the current school system is outdated and ineffective.

I understand that they want to give the youth a well rounded education to prepare them for any route that they wish to

take, but I feel like humans need to experience things for themselves. To learn what to do on their own.

Experience is the greatest way to learn, and it’s enjoyable as well.

No longer are we teaching kids to grow up and work in a factory. That’s the way we bring generalists about.

Our society needs specialists now.

After all, one person that can do well with computer maintenance is infinitely more useful than ten people that can do a single task repeatedly.”

And now, back to school.
