The education system is one of the most important things in any country. Only the country that educates its kids properly has a chance of a truly great future. However, in most countries today, all that the school systems do, is prepare their students to fit into the current system. But is that real education? Curbing all the natural interests and creativity in a child and making all of them identical to each other is not fair.
Motivational Artist Prince EA is not happy with this. In his latest video, he plays a lawyer in a courtroom who has sued the school system. He speaks about all that is wrong with the current school system, and he does it with a beautiful rap verse.
He begins his argument with Albert Einstein's famous quote, "Everyone's a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it's stupid."
And although he highlights the problems with the US school system, we can find many parallels with the Indian education system as well. He mentions the school systems in Finland and Singapore as examples of good educational structures.
It's not only the students who are treated unfairly by the schools, it's also the teacher. The rapper says that teachers have one of the most important jobs in the world, but they still don't get paid accordingly.

That's quite an eye-opener!
Let's hope some policymaker in India watches this.
