Don’t Stay in School


I wasn’t taught how to get a job, but I can remember dissecting a frog. I wasn’t taught how to pay tax, but I know loads about Shakespeare’s classics! I was never taught how to vote they devoted that time to defining isotopes. I wasn’t taught how to look after my health but mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell! Never spent a lesson on current events, instead I studied The Old American West. I was never taught what laws there are. I was never taught what laws there are!! Let me repeat,
I was not taught the laws for the country I live in But I know how Henry VIII killed his women! Divorced, beheaded, died,
divorced, beheaded, survived Glad that’s in my head instead of financial advice! I was shown the wavelengths of different hues of light, but I was never taught my human rights apparently there is 30! Do you know them? I don’t. Why the hell can’t we both recite them by rote I know igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rock. Yet I don’t know squat about trading stock or how money works at all, where does it come from? How does the thing that motivates the world function? Not taught to budget and disperse my earnings, I was too busy there rehearsing cursive! Didn’t learn how much it cost to raise a kid or what an affidavit is but I spent days on what the quadratic equation is negative b plus or minus the square root of b squared
minus 4ac over 2a That’s insane, that’s absolutely insane! They made me learn that over basic first aid! Or how to recognize the most deadly mental disorders, or diseases with preventable causes or how to buy a
house with a mortgage – if I could afford it ‘cause abstract maths was deemed more important than advice that would literally save thousands of lives but it’s cool, ‘cause now I could tell you if the number of unnecessary deaths caused by that choice was prime. Never taught present day practical medicines but I was told what the ancient hippocratic method is “I’ve got a headache, the pain is ceaseless what should I take?” umm… maybe try some leeches? “Could we discuss domestic abuse and get the facts or how to help my depressed friend with their mental state?” Ummm… no but learn mental maths because “You won’t have a calculator with you every day!” They say it’s not the kids, the parents are the problem Then if you taught the kids to parent that’s the problem solved then! All this advice about using a condom but none for when you actually have a kid when you want one I’m only fluent in this language, for serious? The rest of the world speaks two, do you think I’m an idiot? They chose the solar over the political system So like a typical citizen now I don’t know what I’m voting on which policies exist, or how to make them change (French)”Mais oui, je parle un peu de francais.” (English)”But yes, I speak a little french.” So at 18, I was expected to elect a representative, for a system I had never ever ever ever been presented with. But I won’t take it! I’ll tell everyone my childhood was wasted! I’ll share it everywhere how I was ‘educated’. And insist these pointless things
Don’t stay in school.

  • that's why i don't give a crap anymore

  • I find It funny that I memorized the quadratic equation from listening to this song.

  • Top 10 Rappers That Eminem Is Afraid To Diss

  • Babi paru anjing

  • I dropped out at 17 but got GED week after. Never been to college but have had $17 hr job since 18 with no college. Many kids in and still ok. Could get assistance but I deny it because there's already enough shit that abuse it and I don't want to take easy way out. You can do it you can make it. It's not about what you have but appreciate

  • U. are right

  • Hold on why did we learn cursive in school when most kids in school don’t write in cursive but when your learning about it in school you HAVE to write in cursive

  • My science teacher: Mass can’t be created or destroyed
    My RE teacher: God created the Earth
    Me: But wouldn’t God need to create mass to do that which is impossible?
    My RE teacher: Shut up and I’ll give you an A+

  • #dontstayinschool

  • Im literly learning allmost everything hes talking about.

  • 2:03.
    It's good to know that Boyinaband cares about how Jaiden is doing and what her mental state is…

    (I'm pretty sure he's talking about Jaiden anyways…)

  • student breaks arm

    Nurse: “an ice pack will do!”

  • Oh,you broke your arm…

    Where is the cough syrup?

  • I hate school, but I like studying.
    I just don't support the way we learn and how information is delivered to us.

  • That exactly my point! Do I need to know the cubic volume of a square to do everyday things??? No way! I mean, it depends on your job but why do you need cubic measurements and anatomy to be an exorcist? All I will be doing is getting rid of demons and spirits! No math required! Why do I need to learn about the Midwest when I could be learning about how to get a college degree!

  • Kid: gets stabbed in chest

    Nurse: how bout some ice

  • 0:51 ……….

    That’s how Pink Floyd was made

  • I learned more in this video then in school

  • I learnt how to fart for seven hours in school

  • Uhm…fun fact about me I went to play therapy as a kid and music therapy to in school so…. you can tell I was a fucked up kid 😂 (^._.^)ノ

  • No one:

    Every comment section: No one:

  • Lololololol my school actually has health education classes and in history they teach us about politics and how to vote etc 😂

  • My Spanish teacher gave out to get a kid for not doing his homework but we was having leg surgery that day like school is not the only thing going on in peoples lives #fuckschool

  • Went from throwing shade at Prince E.A to this? We learn what we do at school to challenge our brain, and expand our knowledge to make us better problem solvers in the future.

  • This song is not about the beats but about the lyrics

  • the only people who dont agree with this video are teachers.

  • 54k dislikes from teachers telling you that school prepares you for life

  • This video is quite possibly my favorite video of all time, and has some of the best and most relatable/true lyrics I’ve heard. More people, specifically parents and educators, need to see this. Thank you so much Dave, for making a song like this, a video like this. <3

  • You know, my mom is from Japan, my dad is italian and I was born and I'm living Germany and I can tell you that everywhere it is exactly the same.

  • i have to agree with everything about this and i know the title is just to get to listen to him not telling us that we should drop out of school

  • When I was a kid, I would go onto my Gameboy and never study. I never paid attention in school, and I always got top marks.

    When I was a teenager, I would play Minecraft all day and study maybe 15 minutes per week. I was still getting top marks while I didn't pay attention.

    School knowledge doesn't matter anymore; I literally got all my knowledge from video games and still ended up top of my class.

  • I think we all know that.

  • After all these years im only now starting to see a slight change in education. My teachers have started trying to put real life lessons into our curriculum. Everyday in my honors english and civics class we go over current events and in civics my teacher actually did a lesson completely over opening a bank account, budgeting and buying a home. While my english teacher had us do mock job interviews infront of the class for a large grade, trying to develop our public speaking skills. All of the teachers actually putting in an effort to help us get ready for life, I applaud you.

  • Guys good news first aid is becoming part of the NATIONAL curriculum from January 2020

  • Dude!! Powerful…

  • Schools: WRITE THAT DOWN WRITE THAT DOWN!

  • I am ten years old and this song literally is my brain when we learn fucking algebra why do we need to learn that shit I have a thing in my bloody pocket called a phone that is the answer to maths

  • School taught me three things.

    1. How it feels to be isolated, bullied, hit and mentally abused, for just being yourself. And your at the point where you wanna commit suicide, but your counselor doesn’t give a shit and doesn’t even like you just tells you “Oh, just tell a trusted adult” when I’ve been doing that for 3 years and apparently “there’s no proof” so they can’t do anything about it and just tell them to stop. But they keep doing it and it drives you to suicide but you know that suicide doesn’t end pain it causes more for others so you don’t do it but endure the pain.

    AND

    2. How to hold my poop in for 7 hours.
    3. Ice can fix everything.

    Just because you cannot see that it is useful, doesn't mean it isn't useful…
