While I find a certain humor in this photo as I have often joked about not being a good student myself with my formal education ending with high school, it makes me think about how the school system could be better. I used to start each of my high school classes asking the teacher what their grading formula was so I could game their system and do the minimum amount of work needed to get a passing grade. I did this because I had a hard time sitting still in class and simply wanted to read other things, which meant skipping class and going to the library because it was before Google, Wikipedia & YouTube. Before I graduated I probably read every engineering & science book in there. I understand the importance of having a more rounded education and but here we are 20 years later and I am watching my daughter (who is an A student) struggle with the same issues in high school that I did. The system still looks much the same as it did hundreds of years ago despite incredible advancements in technology. I am not sure exactly what all should be changed about the system, but seeing that so many people who made great innovations or find huge success in the world are also often the ones who chose the less formal path to get there means it should be looked at and we should be thinking about how we can apply these technologies change the educational systems we have here.
