Random midnight thought polluting my mind so I'll put it out here.
You don't get to send your children to school and encourage them to learn about these strong, profound concepts, phenomenas and schools of thought and then leave it at that.
It's your responsibility to find time to discuss and acknowledge and debate on the accuracy, depth and validity of the plethora of concepts they get bombarded with every single day of their life their entire childhood.
It's extremely frustrating to not get affirmation that your intellect is real and useful outside the school boundaries.
It is even more frustrating for a young energetic mind to come home from being enlightened to be subjected to basic animalistic activities like eating, sleeping, washing and lazing around.
When you give your kid an entire childhood of "family time" in the lounge composed of grazing like animals on fodder and mindlessly consuming screentime of mediocre acting and uninformed opinions, don't complain about your children growing up into unexpressive adults who avoid communication with you. #rantover
What do you guys think about this? Have you experienced frustrations from being saturated with knowledge? Or have you had supportive aware parents? What was the impact?
We’re excited to kick off the Summer School Edit with our first feature on the incredible Lavinya Stennett. A historian, writer and the founder of @TheBlackCurriculum! She observed the erasure of Black British History in our curriculum and knew she had to do something about it.
The contributions of Black British people are systematically ignored and disregarded in the current history syllabus. Lavinya Stennett is doing everything she can to change that - follow her and donate to @TheBlackCurriculum to support the #TBH365 campaign.
We have a rich history of incredible Black women including Olive Morris, Mary Seacole, Lilian Bader to name just a few. Their stories and so many others deserve to be part of our national conversation - who do you wish we had been taught about in school? We’d love to know in the comments!

Does the flaw lie in the extreme importance our education system gives on figures and marks over an all-round development? Or does it also include the age-old curriculum? Akhil, the current talent head at Boxfit, takes us through his life and shows us why at the end of the day, marks are mere numbers on a paper. @akhilmehra11
The education system has killed the creativity of millions of students. Our system has failed us. Sure math is important but not more than art or dance . Everyone has unique abilities .We must thrive to bring the best out of them.
