The true problem with education is ___________?
Well that is a tough question but equally as good. A student learns a certain idea or concept or thing and the parents learn about it. Then the parent should ask your very question Jeronique to the child. How can we apply what you learned today to your life? Now obviously not everything can be applied to life. But what can be should. The basic idea is to interact with your child specifically about what they learned on a daily basis. Otherwise what's the point of learning if you can't use what you learned? Who better to use it with than your parents?

What motivates you?
I am usually thinking of how productive I could be while I am sitting on the couch lazily. What could I be doing that interests me???!?!? Oh I know! Garage art! Or just whatever I feel like doing or am able to do.

...Parents. The teachers job is at school teaching the children how to read and right and so forth. The teacher has a limited reach to the children in the sense of education. That is all a teacher is there for. Friends are there to simply get a student through school and what not. So that would leave us with the parents. What are they doing? Child wakes up, goes to school, learns math, comes home and the parents don't bother checking up on their beloved child. Then the child goes plays basketball, some videogames, and remembers that he has a project due and works on it for a couple minutes slapping some weirdness together and falls asleep to spongebob. Umm.... is there something wrong with this picture? Where are the parents in all this? If you guessed nowhere your right! Parents are not checking up on their children like they should be. Parents are not helping their children with homework, or asking how did school go, what did you learn today in school, how can you apply that to daily life and so on. If the parent never shows them how to apply school work or never reminds them of it...well that is bad. Parents are the motivators. Not the motive but the motivators. Now don't get me wrong, sure our education system has problems. But that is not where it starts. It starts at home.

Do we all agree on the same peace?
"I believe we all agree on peace, but you can't share true peace unless you're at peace with yourself." I am pretty sure that I don't agree with your definition of peace. And what does it mean to be at peace with yourself? To this day I still don't know what that means.

You said that your disagreements (if I may call them your opinions) are not worth fighting for. The question is simply are you willing to put them into action? For instance you can talk all day long about your opinions and how you don't like the government telling you what to do, or whatever be your case my be on TED, but if your not out doing something about your opinion then what is the point of even opening your mouth? (That was just an example, I do not know what you believe)

What motivates you?
Boredom for sure. When I get bored I typically always do something about it! I got so bored the other night I stayed up all night creating art in my garage.
