Swift Kick Central: Valedictorian Speaks Out Against Schooling in Graduation Speech

    • We have no choices in life when money is our motivational force. Our motivational force ought to be passion, but this is lost from the moment we step into a system that trains us, rather than inspires us. 

    • You still have the opportunity to stand up, ask questions, be critical, and create your own perspective. Demand a setting that will provide you with intellectual capabilities that allow you to expand your mind instead of directing it. Demand that you be interested in class. Demand that the excuse, "You have to learn this for the test" is not good enough for you.

    • Education is an excellent tool, if used properly, but focus more on learning rather than getting good grades
