Although my grades are pretty good, I strongly oppose the School’s curriculum nowadays. School’s curriculum isn’t guiding me to Talents and skills. Teachers teach the same Syllabus and Theories, to all students in the school. The same subjects and curriculum, taught by the same methods meant for million students who have different expertise and proficiency. In School, students expected to stick to useless school routines. Get up in the early morning, usually never have time to eat breakfast, which is why students can’t be productive without energy. Students have six to nine hours of school and in the school, they learned those useless lessons, have only thirty minutes break which is usually lunch time, where students do their homeworks and stress about how much burden they have to deal with, then they go home, go to bed, and repeat the same thing.

            In school, people judge by grades. They’re acting like grades determine who we are. Everyone has their own talents, dreams, creativity and style! Nowadays, students with good marks and excellent at science or math being highly appreciated, Acknowledged as the world’s conqueror. Math and Science became the standard of intelligence. Determinant to be a genius. This is an exceedingly terrible assertion that harmed student’s mindset! And the worst thing, we learn the same things we’ve learned in the first grade! Theories, Methods, Facts! Schools aren’t raising a cleverness, successful generation. They didn’t teach students about taxes or about how to gain profit from their skills and make money from their talents! Schools are raising a generation of robots and zombies.

            Approximately 80% lessons we learned in school don’t help us in real life and isn’t useful at all. Students have to do math or science, as if they really going to use it in the future. Why are schools having students do all this ineffective things? Are we come upon 2log5,3x(100-log10) in life? So why are we (who aren’t going to be a technologist or fitting professions) still learning this worthless things!. Students feel hopeless when they aren’t pass their semester with high-quality marks. If a student want to be a writer, then what does learning the bacteria structure have to do with that? What does the question 2log5,3x(100-log10) do with being a writer?. Or an Animator, Artists, Singer, why they still have to learn about those complicated subjects?.  An Alchemist who masters periodic table might not able to do the writing, or drawing like them!. Mastering Math is everything whilst arts, musics, sports, and other talents being throw out and condemn as an inferior. I’m not saying Math is trivial. Basic Math is really useful in real life!. But, can’t all lessons be in the same level?. Arts or dance just as important and worthy as math? Everyone is great in their own aptitudes! We need to change!.

            Let’s see some good example of people who wasn’t a great students but became such an important piece of history. From my country, Indonesia. Basko, only graduated from elementary school but now he’s a great entrepreneur, Has so many assets, 5-star hotel, and hiring the scholars. Susi Pudjiastuti, only graduated from Junior Highschool, now a fishery minister in Indonesa, famous of her remarkable movement and intelligence. Prof.Hamka, didn’t go to school, but titled as a Proffessor, given by Al-Azhar University in Cairo because he has published so many books and his thoughts even greater than scholars. In the world, we knew the names Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg, who drop out from their school and became the richest men in the world. Albert Einsten, Thomas Alva Edison, the inventor, threw out from his school, homeschooling and taught by his mother. How can they become even more success than the scholars? Because in school, they didn’t have the chance to think creatively and innovatively. School’s cycle is just following the curriculum and do things that we don’t even want to. All students were created to be an intelligent. Even a disability and neurologic syndrome students can change the world. Everyone have the same right!.

Many students are actually smart, or even genius, but their grades didn’t show the same. Isn’t this heartbreaking?.  School now isn’t about learning. It’s about passing!. They don’t even test you on your intelligence. They just test your memory!. Teachers didn’t have any right in school. Entertainers, actresses, football players who didn’t  teach knowledge but enjoyment completely overpaid and teachers, who teach knowledge, struggle for better generation, key of the world is in their hands, are underpaid!.

            Finland or UK can be the sample for school education system. School should’ve lead the students according to their flair. Listen more to their opinions. Give the same chance to all students. Shorten the school hours. No homeworks. Not only teaching intelligence, but also develop their emotions, teach them to love each other. Build their mental and character. forbid them to do bullying. Teachers have physcology ability to understand student’s personality. Main goal of the curriculum is to create a creative, well personality, critical, and find student’s talents. Prepare them for paying bills and life skills. If a student good at something, and it’s easy for them, that’s their calling. It might be for them. School as a facility to lead them. Some students do really hard hobbies, creating computers, modeling robots, their talents can be identified by observing what they likes. More specific for elementary school students, We can begin by the Psikotes test, aura test, or other various tests, or fingerprint test which claimmed to have 90% validity. Or by facilitating them with toys and books that support their talents. And for teenager students, School have to formulate the relationships between their ability and working activities and Let them go on the job.

            Students, as a part of human being, was created to be happy. School is a place to find gladness. School is heaven, not hell. A place to prepare the future. Not a place to get stressed. Because, everything that done by happiness will create a better world.
