The Future

What will life be like 100 years from now? How foolish will we feel for our linear factory style education system? Any 2111 historian will understand our flawed education system was merely the bi-product of industrialization, but surely they will wonder why it took us so long to change. It would be tough to explain to a future human species why we treated our young so poorly. Perhaps there will be a movement similar to the one for civil writes or women empowerment. Perhaps it will be kids themselves that lead this movement, tired of being told what to do, tired of having their wants, needs, desires, passions, and humanity stepped-on by a system that forces adults to bore them. Perhaps the revolution will be led by teachers who understand that there is more to life than memorizing the Pythagorean theorem or being able to regurgitate dates for a test designed to rank students as if one human being was really better than another; as if a number or a letter could define a person; as if their were really any right answers in the real world. Perhaps the movement will be led by politicians who understand that free choice and democracy belong not only to those that can vote, but every citizen of the nation. Perhaps one day children may even be able to vote on certain things that affect their life. And I wonder how peaceful might the world be if no one "graduated", but instead everyone followed their passions and created works for the betterment of humanity and continued to learn each and every day. In a hundred years, I hope we will have changed.
