Takehiro Kori Posted about 2 years ago Ken Robinson: How to escape education's death valley I've been going through standardized education system in my entire mandatory education. And in my country, even in the stage of job hunting, I can say that the measurement of students skills is standardized as well. In seeking jobs, we're not judged by who we are nor what we can do but by how much we prepared for the standardized job-hunting. Most companies pick up students who passes this standard based on the academic background. Most students are in this fixed mold of system and unconsciously proceeding just like products running on the belt conveyor. Such being the case, most students who conform to this product line are likely to get well-paid job, and students who fail to conform to this product line are doomed to drop out before they start their careers. I'm the former, and about to get my first job , and I feel like I'm still on some sort of product line.
