I am campaigning for USEFUL EDUCATION. To children instead of one chasing money. The education that give knowledge for healthy living. It is simple, but .. No one in education space is willing to take a look at it and debate.

It looks current edn is trying to convert evry one for white collar jobs.
Do prosperity need to be linked to education alone?
Besides money there are are many that humans need.

That is because teachers are not teachers for the money. Not REAL teachers- fake ones are and the really really bad ones are.. they are all about the money but the real teachers are about the students and giving the students the ability not only to learn and pass the courses but to expand on their knowledge and use it going forward in real life- Just my opinion.
