School systems teach how to get a good job!

October 24th, 2006 | No Comments |

I am in the middle of reading a book written by Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki: Why we want you to be rich. It switches back and forth from Roberts point of view on a certain subject to Donalds view. They speak a lot about how the middle class of America is decreasing in size and eventually there will be very little middle class and only the rich and the poor will exist. Which category would you rather be in if the middle class didn’t exist?

Robert grew up with two examples of what do to in life when it comes to success and failure. He speaks of his rich Dad and poor Dad. His poor Dad is his own Father and his rich Dad is his friends Dad. He spoke of how his poor Dad learned of how the school systems in Hawaii would fail a certain number of students no matter how good or how bad they were doing in school. After some poking around he found out that the sugar plantations there had an agreement with the school to fail this certain percentage of kids so that the plantations would always have laborers to work for them. So his poor Dad tried to change the system from within and was betrayed by his very close friends out of fear for their own jobs.

What are the school systems teaching? Are they teaching risk and prosperity? Are they teaching money and financial IQ? I think they are doing the exact opposite. Schools are teaching how to play it safe. They teach how to get a good education, find a nice job and work for a retirement. School education is very conservative. What about being and entrepreneur or taking risks? They teach you about getting a good education and a good job but don’t include what really goes on in the real world. What about how and where to invest, live life to the fullest, and becoming successful and creating jobs and being part of the solution to the struggle instead of being part of the problem.

Education is a good thing as I have said in my past blogs. You definitely don’t want a doctor that has no knowledge in the medical field or a lawyer that has no idea about law. Learn all you can because when it is all said and done and when this life ends, you surely can’t take your money with you. But can you take your Knowledge? Knowledge is energy and the more of it you have, the better off you’ll be. You have to do what others don’t want to do to have an egde in life. Always be learning above and beyond what you know.
