Eddy Zhong, successful technology entrepreneur, dives into the truth behind our K-12 education system. Eddy strongly believes that the education system diminishes creativity and confines children to a certain path towards success. He contends that kids are taught to believe college is a necessary step in life and that it is mandatory to achieve one's goals. His talk challenges the commonly held beliefs of our entire education structure. Eddy is the founder of Leangap, a summer program that helps high school students start their own companies

school: what’s a passion? Let’s just teach them random things that you don’t even need and stress them out! We don’t care about what you say or do! We just care about your brain and see how smart you are learning these “important” stuff! Totally not taxes,license,or work!
See, we all agree that the school system is faulty and it teaches us nothing about the real life, but only force feeds us random facts and useless equations which we all forget after a week or so! But what we need to do is that.. we all need to speak up! 99.9% of the comments agree with this video... yet, only about 1% will actually try to spread this and let everyone know that school is putting us kids under unnecessary stress, anxiety, burden, and depression! So let's all do this together! We all need to speak up for the RIGHT thing! School is nothing but a prison!
yes I agree!!! im 10 and im going through depression mostly because of school and I especialy hate the people and the horrible teachers like I love parkour and I do classes I practised in school on the walls and I finally nailed the 5 step wall run and a teacher hit me while on the wall and I have a cut down my face, they just left me there and walked away.they even told the school and made us go up on the stage and they forced people not to like us! it made me want to kill myself. my parents tell me to look on the bright side, I don't get how people in school are always happy, being sad is a thing you can ignore you have to help the sadness not forget about it that's why im in my position im in.
When students say school is the worst part of their entire life, they're aren't lying, school IS the worst. It's a waste of time & it's worthless, but no parents will ever believe that, they'll all just say "Stay in school kids!"
Going to school is like going to a job. You know you don’t want to go, but you have to and you will be miserable. But atleast you got your squad to hang with. School tries to guide students to find their passion, but it makes many students tired and unmotivated. School makes you learn, but it doesn’t motivate you to find your future career choice and limits your creativity. So far, you could argue school’s been doing a decent job, but it could be so much better.
My school tries too hard at making people creative. We have these events that force kids to do things they don’t want to do, have no interest in, with people they don’t like. Creativity cannot be forced.
Well, I belong to a lot called 'lecturers'. I have had such feelings since my school days (..20+yrs since then). This may be the biggest motivation behind the profession I chose.
I found this is not the teachers' fault alone....as most of us might feel. This is a defect of mass education.
I wud say: It is just that everything can't be scaled up successfully.
And when, in a system, a complex thing like human brain is involved... The accuracy of my statement reaches up to 95% or more.
i actually really hope that the future generation will have a much better education system. mine sucks. it is all about.. stuff that doesn't make me more intellegent. the older i got i realized that i get less and less ideas of what i want to be. it sucks.
I go to school and learn things but then I have to go home and relearn the same thing. And then I have to wake up super early to relearn again, get ready, and not be late.
I never get enough time for myself, I’m always busy trying to keep my grades up because not knowing how to solve fraction equations is bad. But apparently not knowing how to be creative or pay our taxes isn’t that important to the school system lmao.
once, i sat around a campfire, and i finally had the opportunity to tell my dad who i want to be in the future, after him being busy for a long time, because I had this nagging question at school last friday, and now, on a campfire, there will be no distractions, so I can talk.
i told him that i wanted to be an footballer, and that i would be a forward position, then i would be rich and have a good life etc
and then my dad spoke:
"I, used to do martial arts. I have changed my mindset. See, in the beginning, I used to think of complex moves, long combinations, and practicing them. There was only one thing, not that I didn't do as I hoped for, such as missing a move, but instead, I didnt prepare myself for the fact that those moves were useless."
"My opponents, they would do a simple move, and that made me frustrated. I thought to myself; Why?? Why was it so easy for my opponent, and so difficult for me? Why do I have to struggle with this move, when my opponent doesn't have to think to get out o the way?"
"I have then, stumbled upon a clue, which said, that the move provides the enemy with more options than for me."
"More variability, means that the opponent has power."
And then, a moment of silence occured, and I began to draw patterns.
Does this have to do with evolution in school?
Does this mean that a shotgun has more power?
and then, I came to the conclusion, that this, is the reason that school has been telling you to shut up, listen to the teacher, never think for yourself, learn stuff you do not like, practice what you will never use, etc etc etc.
My whole point of view onto life changed.
And to this day, I still am grateful toward my father.
School wants you to not be you. If that is the case, why don't they just replace us?
Would you plan too far into the future and be ready for it, only to realize that it was never ready for you, and that someone else got it?
The current Education system is terrible putting kids in the same mold , and allow their Creativity and passion to diminish.
Not only is very time consuming and expensive process, we Have to be serious about education reform By allow kids to have more freedom and Learn by doing in the real world.
Progressive education is is one option.
Believe it or not, if I wasn't going to school, I would just be more socialized, cause I'm scared to even talk to the teachers and when we have a break I'm staying inside drawing in my sketchbook which I brought to school with me, so I don't feel...lonely...sense I'm goin first grade in middle school and a whole knew city, I know no one.......
I've been bullied af when I was younger and I'm not gonna ask someone if they wanna be friends with me again cause I know they're gonna say *no* .
Besides, I've never found someone with the same intrasts as me...
All the kids with D’s and F’s that play games instead of doing homework are the ones that think school does nothing lol. People that go to college make on average $1,000,000 more dollars throughout a lifetime than people who don’t🤷🏼♂️
how DO YOU define intelligence
i guess it changes with time when school was created we needed factory workers who listen and obey
now we need creativeness people who invent and connect who lead and think outside the box instead of having the box made for us
I agree with this speaker, the school system does, in my opinion, make kids less intelligent. I feel like school should prioritize on encouraging creativity, encouraging kids to try new things and guide people to their passions, not make us memorize arbitrary facts that we will forget after a weeks time - that system just seems redundant and counter-productive to me. This whole system has taught us how to live reactively instead of proactively, it focuses on teaching us what to think, but not *how* to think.
Also, that last quote *you can't change the world if you do what the world tells you to do* hit me hard. This school system has caused many to live in the passenger seat, with somebody other than themselves controlling where they go in life, and I wish a day will come where everyone will be able to live their life in the driver's seat, free from others ridding their lives of their freedom.
Very inspirational. But this maverick approach applies mostly to those at the top of the food chain, like Steve Job, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, and other entrepreneurs and innovators. Eddy's company probably could not have grown and succeeded without an army of highly educated STEM professionals.
After going to elementary, they’ve tried to teach us differently with the growth mindset. I’ve read the book mindset, and it specifically says “if you like your fixed mindset, you can keep it.” Meanwhile, elementaries are just shoving this growth mindset stuff down our throats. Kinda ironic that they’re putting you inside a box to think outside of it, huh? Just watch this video, Mr. whoever-owns-the-education-system
*Asian parents* : Son you can be anything you want. Doctor or Engineer.
*Me* : Why...can't I be , what I wanna be? I don't want to be like others. I don't want to be like others. I wanna be myself! But Asian parents can never understand their kids.
