A client at Asshole Consulting asked "What would the world of education look like under Cappy?" To which I answered him below. All of my ideas are genius and should obviously be implemented, but pay particular interest to #11. I not only think it's feasible, but if we got enough employers on board we could obsolete college degrees overnight.
OK, here is "The Education World of Cappy"
there would be no mandatory attendance past the 5th grade. The state
would provide vouchers for students to attend schools until they have
the basics of reading, writing, and arithmetic, and after that, the
state no longer cares if your kid is in school or not. It would be up
to the family to decide if they're going to keep their kid in school
past the 5th grade.
Two, there would be no public
schools. All schools would be private and the government would provide
vouchers for those who are too poor to afford schooling.
any trouble makers would be kicked out. bullies could be beaten by the
teachers. Physical discipline would be allowed. Any shit students
would and could be expelled. After that it would be up to other schools
as to whether or not allow trouble makers into their school.
progress/advancement/graduation would depend on ability, no age. You
could in theory pass high school at the age of 7 if you master the
subjects and test out of it. There is no reason to keep smart kids with
stupid ones for 13 years of education.
would only attend until 16. There is no reason it takes 13 years to
educate children this much. We can easily lop off 2 years of
Sixth, as much education could be
done over the internet as possible. If you can pass the test either in
person or online, I don't care. You passed the test. homeschooling
would be a completely viable option and you could just have to show up
to test at the local school to get certified.
starting at the 6th grade the school would become military. Drills,
exercise, uniforms, discipline. Not mean or beatings or anything like
that...unless some kid mouths off.
Eighth, English and
writing would be eliminated after the 5th grade and the curriculum would
be practical education hence forth. STEM, IT, trades, agriculture,
medicine, civics, economics, construction, firearms, martial arts,
survivalist training, etc. This would require a fair amount of labs and
hands on work. We would also be constantly in contact with employers
to see what was in demand and incorporating those skills into the
Ninth, mandatory military service. 2 years, have a cup of STFU and then you can vote upon completing those two years.
teachers would be required to have 5 years minimum experience in their
field. Nobody with a liberal arts degree or "education degree" would be
allowed to teach. A bum off the street who has 10 years experience
programming, but no degree would be hired over the fuckwit, know-nothing
cunt with her doctorate in "education." They can set up private
schools and colleges all they want, but you'd be an idiot to pay for
attending when there's a perfectly good library on every corner.
colleges and universities would be eliminated (or funding completely
cut) and replaced with a national certification board. You would test
and get certifications, not degrees. Certifications specifically
addressing skills like accounting, programming, supply chain management,
welding, etc. etc that would not already be otherwise offered via unions, the various CPA state boards, or IT certification entities. There would be no "4-8 years in college" BS. Just a
test you may pay some nominal sitting fee for. This national
certification board would be publicly funded, but enlist the help of
industry experts to develop the tests and standards to ensure students
have the required skills.
Anyway, that would be the rough outline of "Cappy's Education Industry". Hope that helps.
