What I learned in school vs. What I didn't learn in school.
iTunes: http://goo.gl/n4EgkZ | Bandcamp: http://goo.gl/gDetLT
I can't remember feeling so passionate whilst writing something in ages. I absolutely love a lot of the subjects I mention in this — astronomy, particle physics, pure maths... but I hate that everyone is forced to learn them. It should be a choice. There are a million other things wrong with education, but this one stood out as the most obvious and most insane.
The point of this song is to get people talking — if you share it, use #DontStayInSchool so we can all get involved in the conversation.
I wasn’t taught how to get a job
but I can remember dissecting a frog
I wasn’t taught how to pay tax
but I know loads about Shakespeare's classics
I was never taught how to vote
they devoted that time to defining isotopes
I wasn’t taught how to look after my health
but mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell
Never spent a lesson on current events
instead I studied The Old American West
I was never taught what laws there are.
I was never taught what laws there are.
Let me repeat — I was not taught the laws for the country I live in, but I know how Henry the VIII killed his women.
Divorced beheaded died, divorced beheaded survived
glad that’s in my head instead of financial advice
I was shown the wavelengths of different hues of light
but I was never taught my human rights
Apparently there’s 30, do you know them? I don’t
Why the hell can’t we both recite them by rote?!
I know igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks
Yet I don’t know squat about trading stocks
Or how money works at all — where does it come from?
Who controls it? How does the thing that motivates the world function?
not taught how to budget and disburse my earnings
I was too busy rehearsing cursive.
Didn’t learn how much it costs to raise a kid or what an affidavit is
but I spent days on what the quadratic equation is
negative b plus or minus the square root of b squared
minus 4ac over 2a
That’s insane, that’s absolutely insane.
They made me learn that over basic first aid
How to recognise the most deadly Mental disorders // or
diseases with preventable causes // How to buy a
house with a mortgage // if I could afford it
‘cause abstract maths was deemed more important
than advice that would literally save thousands of lives
but it’s cool, ‘cause now I could tell you if the number of unnecessary deaths caused by that choice was prime.
Never taught present day practical medicines, but I was told what the ancient hippocratic method is
“I’ve got a headache, the pain is ceaseless
what should I take?” umm... maybe try some leeches?
“Could we discuss domestic abuse and get the facts
or how to help my depressed friend with their mental state?”
Ummm... no but learn mental maths
because “you won’t have a calculator with you every day!”
They say it’s not the kids, the parents are the problem
Then if you taught the kids to parent that’s the problem solved then!
All this advice about using a condom
but none for when you actually have a kid when you want one
I’m only fluent in this language, for serious?
The rest of the world speaks two, do you think I’m an idiot?
They chose the solar over the political system
So like a typical citizen now I don’t know what I’m voting on
which policies exist, or how to make them change
mais oui, je parle un peu de Francais
So at 18, I was expected to elect a representative
For a system I had never ever ever ever been presented with
But I won’t take it
I’ll tell everyone my childhood was wasted
I’ll share it everywhere how I was “educated”
And insist these pointless things

Thanks for checking out my video! I am an emcee/producer from Northern Virginia in the US. I am greatly influenced by both old school and underground hip hop artists/producers alike. I do a lot of sampling and try to make beats that are in the likes of J-Dilla, Pete Rock, DJ Premier, and Stoupe just to name a few. I am currently working on a project to be sold online for charity and I’d love to find other great artists to work with so if you’re interested in collaborating and having a track you were on sold for charity, please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to stay up to date with tracks with real lyrics and real production, please subscribe to my youtube channel or one of my accounts below and you won’t be disappointed. On a side note, if this video you’re watching is older, I suggest you check out the newer content on my channel because I really work at my production skills daily and am constantly progressing and further developing my skills. Thanks!
