now Albert Einstein once said

everybody's a genius but if you judge a

fish by its ability to climb a tree it

will live it's whole life believing that

it is stupid ladies and gentlemen of the

jury today on trial we have modern day

schooling glad you could come

not only does he make fish climb trees

but also makes them climb down and do it

10-mile run tell me school are you proud

of the things you've done

turning millions of people into robots

do you find that fun do you realize how

many kids relate to that fish swimming

upstream in class never finding their

gifts thinking they are stupid believing

they are useless well the time has come

no more excuses

I called school to the stand and accuse

him of killing creativity individuality

and being intellectually abusive he's an

ancient institution that has outlived

his usage so Your Honor this concludes

my opening statement and if I may

present the evidence of my case I will

prove it

proceed Exhibit A here's a modern day

phone recognize it here's a fall from

150 years ago big difference right stay

with me here's a car from today and

here's a car from 150 years ago the big

difference right we'll get this here's a

classroom of today and here's a class we

used 150 years ago now ain't that a

shame and literally more than a century

nothing has changed yet you claim to

prepare students for the future but with

evidence like that I must ask do you

prepare students for the future or the

past I did a background check on you and

let the record show that you were made

to train people to work in factories

which explains why you put students in

straight roles nice and neat tell them

sit still raise your hand if you want to

we give him a short break to eat and for

eight hours a day and tell him what to

think oh and make them compete to get an

A a letter which determines product

quality hits great a of meat I get it

that day and times were different we all

have a past I myself in know Gandhi but

today we don't need to make the robot

zombies the world has progressed and now

we need people who fit creatively

innovatively critically independently

with the ability to connect see every

scientist will tell you that no two

brains are the same and every parent

with two or more children will confirm

that claim so please explain why you

treat students like cookie cutter frames

or snapback hats given them this

one-size-fits-all crap archila sorry

your honor but if a doctor prescribed

the exact same medicine to all of his

patients the results will be tragic so

many people would get sick yet when it

comes to school this is exactly what

happens this educational malpractice

where one teacher stands in front of 20

kids each one having different strains

different needs different gifts

different dreams and you teach the same

thing the same way that's horrific

ladies and gentlemen the defendant

should not be acquitted

this may be one of the worst criminal

offenses ever to be committed and let's

mention the way you treat your employees

objection overruled

I want to

it's a shame I mean teachers have the

most important job on the planet debt

they're underpaid no wonder so many

students are short change let's be

honest teachers should earn just as much

as doctors because a doctor can do heart

surgery and save the life of a kid but a

great teacher can reach the heart of

that kid and allow him to truly live see

teachers are heroes that often get

blamed but they're not the problem they

work in a system without many options on

the Wrights curriculums are created by

policy makers most of which have never

taught a day in their life just obsessed

with standardized tests they think

bubbling in a multiple-choice question

will determine success

that's outlandish in fact these tests

are too cruel to be used and should be

abandoned but don't take my word for it

take Frederick J Kelley the man who

invented standardized testing who said

and I quote these tests are too cruel to

be used and should be abandoned ladies

and gentlemen of the jury if we continue

down this road the results will be

lethal I don't have much faith in school

but

have faith in people and if we can

customize healthcare cars and Facebook

pages that it is our duty to do the same

for education to upgrade and change and

do away with school spirit cuz that's

useless unless we're working to bring

the spirit out of each and every student

that should be on task no more common

core instead let's reach the core of

every heart in every class sure math is

important but no more than art or dance

let's give every gift an equal chance I

know this sounds like a dream my

countries like Finland I'm doing

impressive things they have shorter

school days teachers make a decent wage

homework is non-existent and they focus

on collaboration instead of competition

but here's the kicker boys and girls

their educational system outperforms

every other country in the world

other places like Cigna poor succeeding

rapidly schools like Montessori programs

like Khan Academy there is no single

solution but let's get moving

because while students may be 20% of our

population

they are 100% of our future solicited to

their dreams and there's no telling what

we can achieve this is a world in which

I believe a world where fish are no

longer forced to climb trees

I rest my case

hey God
