This is a direct quote from a student today. And it shows the magnitude of the struggles so many of our youth face. They think jail is their best option.
This is part of why I am so passionate, and at times angry about how hard it can be to help people pursue their passions and own those big dreams!
In school, for me, from kindergarten to today I loved learning. But, always hated the system. I understand why the systems and structures exist. But as early as the first grade it made zero sense to me.
Yet, I was blessed with emotional control and the ability to play the game, and so I was never kicked out permanently.
In grade 12, all through my undergrad, it was the same. Long before online learning was a thing I still never went to class. I played sports, worked out, hung out with friends, made stuff, played video games, and listened to music.
Yet again, I was blessed with the ability to play the game, and so I thrived by their standards. Tests were easy, they were black and white, binary, with straightforward answers. And, the teachers or professors certainly did not have unique ownership over the answers.
I could learn any way I wanted, and go write the test, and voila, 96, 87, 92, whatever…
But, so many children and youth don’t have this ability to survive the system, and that’s a big part of “my why”. How do we help way more people feel like they have way more options?
