AN OPEN LETTER TO THE AMERICAN SCHOOL SYSTEM

Dear Reader,

If you didn’t already know, I’m an education major. And a few weeks ago in class, I started thinking about all the things that annoy me about the american school system. As it turns out, there’s a lot.

So, I wrote an open letter, then I read it out loud in front of a camera, and forgot to upload it for a few weeks.

Oops.

But I’m sharing it now because sometimes it’s good to get things off your chest, you know? And let’s be honest–there’s plenty that can be fixed with our education system, and I’m not really seeing the progress I’m looking for.

So here’s a video of me reading a very abridged list of what worries me regarding the future of America and our school system. Enjoy if you want.

Sincerely,

Sammy

    Well-articulated, Sammy. I also read the article you linked us to, and I am really astound at the amount of discussion– albeit highly-opinionated–that you generated with your video. Kudos to you for being brave and voicing your opinions on this matter that rarely gets talked about in America. Hopefully, things will change in the generations to come.

    While not as articulately-phrased as yours, I have written a post not too long ago about my thoughts on the education system in the U.S., as it relates to vocational/scholarly applications. Perhaps it will interest you: https://thefinickycynicat.wordpress.com/2015/09/04/school-system-in-the-u-s/
