How to fix society? Create your own school. With your own ideals. To educate the youth and the future.

My vision.

We all talk about problems in America. I offer solutions.

My basic thoughts:

1. Educate the youth.

We gotta educate the youth. Especially kids in the ‘hood’. How do we do this? My thoughts:

2. My Three Pillars

  1. Computer Science
  2. Philosophy
  3. Art

Let us consider … in today’s world, any kid with a computer science degree from college can earn ~$80,000 to $100,000 … at the age of 21!!! I propose a simple system of getting every kid in the hood a cheap (used or refurbished) Apple MacBook laptop. Even right now, a new MacBook Air for education starts at around $899 USD.

How to motivate kids

Now the question:

How can we most effectively motivate kids?

Not teaching them about ‘knowledge’. No! We gotta attend to their personal desires!

For example in the hood, kids want:

  1. Fancy sports cars (Lexus, BMW, Mercedes)
  2. Cool sneakers (Nike, Jordan, Adidas, YEEZY)
  3. Money ($100 dollar bills … money to their head)
  4. iPhone (the newest one)
  5. Respect

Now, the best way to motivate a high school kid to study computer science:

Hey Raphael … if you study computer science, and just stick with it in college… you can earn $100,000 a year straight out of college at age 21!!! You can buy your BMW, YEEZY’s, iPhone Pro, etc.

Kids are motivated by money!

Physical education

We gotta bring back physical education. I would encourage mandatory (at least 3 hours a day) of physical (not just mental) education. This is assuming an 6-hour student day. I propose a pure barbell between half-education, and half-physical training. If anything, 80% of the time on physical education is probably more effective.

Why? The more physically fit the students are, the more mentally strong they are too.

The sports can include:

  1. Boxing
  2. Weight Lifting
  3. Racing (foot racing)
  4. Bicycle racing
  5. Wrestling

Essentially any of the sports done during the funeral games of Patroclus in the Iliad.
