Subjects No Longer Taught At School

Everyone knows that our educational system is in trouble, this is not a secret.

Falling standardized test scores, lower literacy rates, children not being able to do simple math or construct paragraphs with correct sentence structure, are just the tip of the iceberg.

It was announced earlier this week that Finland, as an attempt to fundamentally disrupt a failing system, is going to end all subjects in school.

Unfortunately, this is not a radical, bold new move, it is exactly along the same lines of thinking that has been making education worse and worse.

The problem with education is not a the people (in fact teachers and administration have never cared more about their students than today), it's not a subject problem (well it kind of is, but at a deeper level), it's a core philosophical problem.

Until and unless children are taught in a way that is congruent with the way the human brain works, we will always have the same educational problems.

The purpose of this podcast is to discuss why removing 'all subjects' is a bad idea and how to make education better.

Here Is What We Covered

  • Why knowledge is important to you and your children's life and why you can't make actual learning important enough.
  • Why our modern educational system is in trouble and what we can do to fix it. HINT: The issue has nothing to do with the people in the system - teachers are some of the most caring people on the planet the problem with the system is philosophical.
  • Why removing subjects from school is a huge step in the wrong direction. Removing structure from school is not a radical new way of thinking, it's more of the same way of thinking that's already ruined education.
  • What you can do at home to help your child.
