I Will Not Let An Exam Result Decide My Fate - Suli Breaks,Vanity Fair,2009 "I Will Not Let An Exam Result Decide My Fate" picks up on the education topic but takes a different stance and angle from "Why I Hate School But Love Education". This poem talks about how we have been made to think about how education and getting university degrees can give us opportunities to have a better chance in making our dream careers a reality. It also touches on how as individuals we are judged and tested by how well we perform on exams, but not all people perform well in exams so why are they made out to feel like they're dumb? The inconsistencies of the education system are really peeled open to reveal a deep problem that needs to be addressed and how society's needs have changed to make this even more apparent. When it boils down to it, why are we misled into thinking that education is the only way forward for successful means in our work and career lives? We need to open our minds and educate ourselves that exam results aren't the barometer of success and that we can't let them decide our fate. We are in charge of our own destinies!

In the U.S. there is such a thing as Opt Out of State testing. I recommend joining one in your state, I found mine through Facebook. Unfortunately I don't know the law's in the United Kingdom regarding testing. The problem with testing is it's a way to collect data that can later be used against you.

An my major problem is that so many kids grow up through school and learn next to nothing but ways to get a j.o.b. and sign up for college. They don;t know how to interpret media, how to process felings how to develop healthy long-term habits nor how to make healthy funtional connections with the people around them They go through 18 years of their lives stressing out about simple tasks portrayed as all-determining and all-important instead of being inspired and given a medium through which to interpret and accomplish those tasks. Many school systems are innovative and actually take into account the psycology of effective learning and success while many schools in forgotten area pour out generations of unmotivated pessemistic attitudes while the few who happen to work well in the system ask why everyone's so down.

Justin Harry (3 months ago)
I totally agree with this song. 100% but, I can see that even if you may never need to use or know History, but, there is nothing wrong with knowing. If you refuse the knowledge that your offered, I think its a bit of a stupid stuborn mistake. Personally I stink secondry school teens should be taught how to "adult". Things like taxes... You get thrust into the adult world and need to rely on your parents to teach them. The school system is flawed basiclly

Rediscovered this after watching it when I was like 10 And now I think of it its the reason I started writing poetry. Such vivid content 👏
Topboxing (4 months ago)
I agree partially with what this guy says. Exams in terms of content are more often than not useless in terms of use in the real world, whether you feel that knowing a basic set of information benefits you and society as a whole is what you feel personally. But what exams do show is dedication and work ethic, I understand that coming from a good environment, school etc obviously does help, but the ability to stick with something over a long time is a pretty good measure of work ethic which is obviously something employers look for.

THAT IS THE MOST STUPIDEST VIDEO BY FAR. I had to stop that BULLSHIT, 40 seconds in. The video is trumpeting the willingness to be ignorant ... of not knowing how things work. It sends the wrong message to children. A bunch of goddamn rebellious idiots, protesting EDUCATION ... KNOWLEDGE ... LEARNING!? It attempts to justify not learning and studying ... and, it attempts to make their parents feel bad about forcing them to get an education. WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT SHIT ALL ABOUT.... Always strive for knowledge. Learn as much as you can about history, science, math, humanities, life. KNOWLEDGE IS EMPOWERMENT: The process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one's life and claiming one's rights.
Anony Mous (4 months ago)
I have ADD and this is a bad video, obviously these people dont know what the fuck they are talking about. If i get worse grades because of my ADD then so be it! THAT is life, not everything is fair, i have to try much harder than others but that is my choice if i want same grades. if i get compensation for ADD then i will be set with a job i cant do, women shouldnt either get lower physical requirements. EITHER YOU WORK HARD LIKE I DO OR FAIL THAT IS YOUR CHOICE. LIFE ISNT FAIR NEITHER SHOULD IT BE BECAUSE THAT IS HOW IT FUCKING WORKS YOU WEAKLINGS.

Chane Griffith (4 months ago)
I chose this video because my entire life I have let exams determined who I was. I have always been a bad test taker. I will spend hours studying materials needed for an exam, then the day of the exam would approach and my palms would get sweaty and boom .... I freeze. The main points of this video is that an exam should determine the type of person you are.. Two quotes that stood out to me were " Why does he have to study subjects he would never have to use in his life" and "You know to get a good job job you need a good degree and these subjects will help you get a good degree". These quotes are important to me because I was always told that I had to go to school in order to get a good job. Now fast forward 10 years later , and Im currently in my Masters program because in my head I can get a better paying job but Correction officer do have the school i did and they get paid about $100,000 a year.

We need to change our education system. School should deliver knowledge in an on-demand, need to know basis instead of memorizing facts and terms for the exam. Lets take Donald Trump for an example. Donald Trump approach knowledge as a tool to get things down and not for being valuable for its own sake. He makes certain what he needs to know to be successful at the time he needs to know it. A radio host interviewed Donald Trump if he can name all militant group in the Middle East. His respond was, "I will know them when its appropiate. I will know more about it than you know, and believe me, it won't take me long". Professor Roger Schank from Yale University adopt Donald Trump learning approach in his teaching courses. We live in the 21st century where society is rapidly growing and advancing in work place, technology, etc. If you want to get things done in a fast moving environment, you need to learn fast and know the right information. You can't predict what the future holds, but you can learn quickly to keep up with the current market trend. If you are not constantly learning, you are falling behind while everything else is passing by. According to Bureau of Labor Statistics, 6 million unfilled jobs is a growing “skills mismatch” that has left many workers unprepared for rapid technological change. As many years to come by, you really to learn fast as you can and keep up with the rapid pace of the economic growth.

I have to disagree. I agree with everything. I am 102 and I wish I could do this. We need good grades. Because trump doesnt have an education and I want to make sure that doesnt happen again. When I went to school for the first time, back in 1922, we had to drink this strange liquid that turned us into donkeys, it was messes up. By the next day i had turned back into a human boy but not b/c of that Pinocchio guy, he left me on that island, I had to figure that shit out by myself. Now that I really think about it, that might have been from a movie i can't really remember, none the less I hated the video go speak at funeral, your own funeral b/c you killed yourself, yeah mic drop spoken word y'all.

Isn't it always funny how these SILLY RAPPERS always *blame their lack of learning on teachers, society and everyone else but themselves* for not opening, studying and learning a lesson. *They never talk about how THEY teased, bullied and humiliated students* that CHOSE to learn. Now that they see all the "nothingness" that their *cool cloths, pouting faces, hostile demeanor* has yielded, they stirs their SAD faces into the camera and STILL BLAME EVERYONE ELSE! Oh yeah, they all have 4 or 5 kids by 3 or 4 different mothers too!

Shhdun (4 months ago)
Mark Spott Honestly how disgusting of you to call me stupid, tell me I assault people and basically calling me uneducated. Where’s your manners? All I did is post the quote the guy used in his video, which is really true for me, at least. Say what you want to say to me but I’ll not change my mind. Yes, there are things we take in school that we actually use in life. But tests are just testing us of how good our memory can take short-memory information. You do not know me the least to tell me “If you had chose to study”. For your information, I am currently studying. And I hope I’m going to do something great with my future because I know really damn well the things I’m good at. Say what you want to say to me but don’t you dare call someone stupid and tell them who they are. Which may turn out the complete opposite. Instead of guessing they’re name in society, ask them. I don’t want to call you uneducated because I don’t know you. But you clearly seem uneducated in your manners. Learn some. It’ll help with your “survival”. ( Plus I’m really bad at hairstyles, that’s something that you apparently thought I did. )
Mark Spott (6 months ago)
Stupid! Survival I guess, if for learned people to be able to drive to work or go shopping without being assaulted by ones like you. If you had chose to study instead of fashionable hair styling, you would have learned survival! You're using technology to post your silly remarks...technology that was LEARNED!!!

Worst part of school was being forced and coerced into sitting in small, crowded rooms of teenagers who’d sooner kill and maim each other than learn anything. Did you know US public schools are built with similar layouts and alarms as prisons? Because they ARE prisons.

There is great (imagined) strength in collective stupidity; Find your peers, blend in, feel better about yourselves......Own it, yo. And you can stand over there owning it, while the vast majority of the rest of the world (if they notice you for even a moment) will regard you as stupid, with good reason. Ask me how I know.
Mark Spott (6 months ago)
So true! It's everyone's fault but their own. Notice he didn't talk about all the days he cut class, got high, disrupted classes and bullied others. No, he was a model student in class and the teachers ignored him because he was black.

I have studied to be a teacher for years. And quite frankly Suli when I find myself struggling with my job I come back to this video and remember why I do the job that I do. I love the children who struggle. I love the children who “can’t behave” and I love the children who exceed. I love MY children learning. Read. Learn about the Swedish way of teaching. Learn about the way maths is taught in Singapore. Ask yourself why we might struggle in this country?! I failed my teaching course because of Singapore maths and I excelled in early years because I can engage wtb the individual. One way get results one way makes a change.

Adrian Ware (9 months ago)
I definitely understand where this is coming from. Because I was in regular classes and I also took special education classes, but the point being is that they try to say that everyone should learn everything at the same pace, which is impossible. Cause as for myself I struggle in reading, I couldn't remember most details after reading long passages. But if you put me in a math class I could tell you the answer without working out the problem, and in science I was nearly untouchable. And for the most part, just about everyone that earns all these degrees turn out to not be that successful anyway, so all that add pressure is a waste of time
