Have you ever thought, are we wasting our times as teachers? Are students actually learning anything valuable in our class? Are they actually going to use any of this stuff in the real world?
Students are craving practical knowledge. Students want to be prepared to tackle the real world! Sometimes teachers get caught up in curriculum and what the ministry says we should be teaching. Have these people even stepped foot in a classroom? The Ministry Business Curriculum hasn't been updated since 2006!!
Today, we speak with Benji Copeland, a former student of mine. Benji did not attend post-secondary school and instead wanted to start his own business at the young age of 20 years old! Today we have an honest conversation about if Benji felt his high school education prepared him to tackle the real world. What can schools do differently to equip students with the necessary skills for those who don't want to attend post-secondary education.
