How's your school performance? Personally, I was one of those people who didn't want to recite at all because of social anxiety. In order to prevent my grades from falling, I had to cram and always pass my homework and exams. I eventually graduated from college after years of seemingly endless classes and research, but was it really worth it? What if everything you paid for, every day you spent cramming, every day paying for the average school, was not worth it?
Here's one man who thinks that the current way we see education is wrong, and he has made his own school to counter the current form of learning.
Jeremy actually dropped out of the prestigious MIT to create his own learning institution called the Make School.
Jeremy's school focuses on the student and their individual potential. The MIT dropout believes that the colleges today, are, well, ineffective at preparing the youth to be competitive and ready for the future of work and adulthood.
Jeremy co-founded Make School with Ashu Desai. More importantly, this school actually doesn't have tests. Rather, they develop projects.
You also won't have to suffer from tens of thousands of dollars in student loan since you aren't forced to pay immediately in Make School. You are only required o pay the tuition fees once you actually have a paying job. Nice!
We often get taught about the things that the previous and next year students will learn about. However, the Make School knows that in the world of computer science and software engineering, there will always be change, and it is best to adapt to these immediately.
