The Educational System. My whole life I thought that success only comes from the wealth that you are able to generate as an older peron, however, now I realise that true success comes from what you are passionate about. Our educational system forces people such as teachers to create labels/perspectives on students before a word is said through results of exams or internals or just tests in general. This in turn affects how producers/employers view someones worth nowadays. So what I'm saying is that in the reality at my school, Kaitaia College, you have 6 choices between the age of 13 -19 that determines your self-worth in life. Is that right? I certainly think not! This idea of a 'one-size-fits-all' system is failing not only me but my community, my people and my culture. So the question i purpose to you is 'does the current educational system need to change?' when I ask this I do not mean the complete elimination of current subjects, just a broader curriculum and standard that caters for EVERYBODY! So please, I believe that there are more people who think similarly to me and I would appreciate if you to gave me your support by sharing and signing this petition and also giving your view on this situation.
