Brett is a teacher and he's sharing how schooling gets in the way of a proper education and he shares how he depends on youtube videos when there are topics that would help instruct the class about a certain subject.

I left a comment that I think we are seeing a good balance develop between using the internet as a way to increase self operated learning and application.  Hopefully, these tools could help parents be more involved in their children's public schools - seeing what goes on there, providing feedback and interacting.

Here is the show description:

November 3, 2014Brett Veinotte has worked in education for the last 12 years, in a variety of capacities. After leaving classroom teaching in 2006, Brett began to work exclusively as a private tutor in the greater Boston area. In 2009, he began The School Sucks Podcast as an outlet for the lessons and experiences he had gathered in and around the schools. The show addresses the problems, history and hidden lessons of American compulsory schooling, but also covers a variety of educational topics including The Trivium, communication, mainstream media, peaceful parenting, philosophy, self-esteem, history and political science. Brett will discuss the difference between schooling vs. education and the importance of cognitive liberty. We’ll also compare past to present day intelligence levels and hear about the Flynn effect. Then, Brett tells about the 9 types of intelligence. Later on, we’ll discuss Charlotte Iserbyt’s work, John Dewey, the Scandinavian school system and the banning of homeschool in Europe. Brett also comments on anti-bullying laws in school and how it creates helplessness. In the member’s hour, we’ll speak more about homeschooling and what to do if it’s illegal in your area. He’ll also give his view on fighting the political system. Then, we’ll discuss how parents have become an enforcer for school, changing the dynamics of the parent/child relationship. Brett also talks about the 6 pillars of self-esteem. We’ll move on to talk about the power of pop culture and whether parents should shield their children from the programming. At the end of the hour, Brett gives advice for people who want to drop out of school.

Write back your response if you wish.  If I hear something that catches my ear like a new idea or book reference I pause the show and write a note.

I think we should get away from watching a show like Charlie Rose without taking notes and sharing our opinion and then going on to put our energy into the place where talking becomes action.  We can always leave a comment on a webpage or bring this to city hall or the walmart management.  The time for being a passive audience should be over.

What good is it to be a fan of opera or disco if we don't take that high and invest it in support in the real world somehow?  I'm just saying this to me and everyone as well as you.  How we consume and give feedback are just as valuable if not more so than voting - I see this as more helpful than voting and should be a required part of democracy.

I'm not the only one who is talking about stuff and not doing anything about it is what I'm saying - this is a global problem.  In this regard I see social networking online is becoming more valuable because we don't have to talk to a million people.  We can find a small group of people that becomes our circle of friends and family online and work on affecting those people locally in the offline world.

You know, I'm starting to meet with my family and friends with Google Hangouts so that's a better use than making posts on facebook alone.  When these tools connect with government things will improve in my opinion.



What if you could learn the truth about how to make money online for FREE with the company of other Independent Business Owners who operate more like your buddies than a bunch of idiot sharks trying to hawk their deal?

You can! \/\/\/
