Final Exams U.S.A Evaluation

Why do we rely on outdated learning methods?
Why do we rely on outdated learning methods?


Although this is an already over-discussed topic, it is still a pressing matter.

Here is my thought on the current education and evaluation system in U.S.A

U.S still relies on outdated teaching throughout high-school and college, formatted to fit not the current global changes but someone who is growing up in the 50’s. Furthermore “exams” are still developed in order to evaluate whether one is prepared to identify and remember current material instead of evaluating whether one is prepared to apply what he/she learned.

Moreover, teaching focuses on our short-memory.

Example: In math, we have to memorize formulas, and in most cases, if we do the exercise becomes simple enough that all we do is pull out our calculators and plug in numbers. We do not need to understand the formula, just memorize it.

Creativity is discouraged and innovation not part of the curriculum.

Analytic skills have little or no value.

Calculators are more important than brains.

Computers are used in every profession, but, because teaching is focused on memory, they are not allowed in exams nor are they used in effective teaching.

Classroom learning is not targeted to students but to curriculum which makes classes unbearable for a new generation that values the self and constant reinventing.

As an international student, English is not my first language. Currently doing an M.B.A in U.S. I have been exposed to different teaching methods and school systems. Here, individuals will still excel as long as they are driven from an young age and also study and improve outside of the classroom. So here are a few questions:

What about those who need guidance from a young age?

Why does the school system punishes for life someone who does not know how to value an education in his teenage years?

Why are G.P.A’s worth more than individuals?

I will keep this short and end it here, but I want to hear from YOU, what is your thought on the current school system in U.S? Do you want to hear more of this “issue”? Do you disagree or agree with my thoughts? and why?

At the end of the day…

Just blowing hate.

Final Exams U.S.A Evaluation

Quick Pleasures

O.k, so lately something’s getting on my nerves.

Why are people not able to do one thing at a time anymore? Why is it so hard to enjoy what they are doing with nothing else in mind?

Here are a few of my personal experiences that you might relate to:

Scenario 1:

Watching supernatural, a show I have been watching with close friends for 10 freaking seasons. S#%t is literally going down! I look at one of my friends (let’s call him Tim) in complete awe, and I realize he is on Tinder. I was pretty much watching it by myself.

Pissed off, I pause the show and confront him – “Dude! what the f, you are not watching it?!” and Tim says “Dude! I am watching it, but, I am also going ahead and setting up the night! ”

He literally could not stay away from his phone, and that’s been happening often lately. .

Scenario 2:

At a concert, with “Tim”,  later on that same night.  While this awesome band is playing , he is recording snapchats over and over again until he gets the “perfect one”. How about enjoying the show?! And why send snapchats of the show? He experienced the show as much as the people who watched the 7sec videos he sent.

Scenario 3:

I will just generalize and also call this friend “Tim”.

This time we are hanging out with a bunch of friends smoking hookah. We are all reminiscing on stories from college, laughing, chilling, BUT, Tim is not part of any of it because he’s been texting all night.

When did “Quick Pleasures” became the drive of our days? Why is it more important to feel pleasure constantly for seconds at a time than “get lost” for long periods of time and truly enjoy something?

At the end of the day… Just blowing hate
