Open-Source Education: Carey Giudici – Episode 161

The Story: Decentralised micro-education for future leaders

Millions of children around the world are aware to some extent of one specific truth – that schools no longer teach what is relevant to them, and the structure of schooling doesn’t serve them. Many modern schools are built around the Prussian model – a military model, which in many cases, demands compliance above all else, and secondly, emphasises the memorisation of facts. Once upon a time, this was beneficial in certain ways, preparing workers for the monotony of factory jobs in the industrial era. Now that era has passed, and with the age of automation upon us, it becomes increasingly obvious that learning to be a human robot not only won’t help students thrive – it will barely allow them to survive.

Carey Giudici is an editor and writer who realised that there were paths to knowledge as yet unexplored, and one way to lead children along the path of self-knowledge was by giving personality tests to them, and connecting them with mentors, experts with similar personality traits around the world who can guide them.

In this interview, Carey tells us about how this system of education, which he calls SMILE, might function, how it already is beginning to function, and how it will help young people with high levels of stress, frustration, and confusion in schools that don’t teach them to become leaders.

The Story:

Do you remember your school days? If you’re like most people, you don’t reflect on the past too much. You could go through your life not winding your mind back to your time in a very strange place, a very different place. Depending on which country you grew up in, perhaps you had to go to school – maybe you were coerced into going to school. Maybe it was made clear to you that there just wasn’t any other choice. You might have gone through 10 or 13 years of your life, going to school every day without even questioning why you were doing it.

This was a place where you were going every weekday, where other people were forced to go too. If you had the choice, you might not have been in the proximity of these people at all. Caged wolves will attempt to dominate one another, using violence. If we put children in a cage, the results are not surprising.
When a teacher stands in front of a class and talks, the message isn’t so hard to determine. They might teach science, history, maths, or they might tell a child directly “You are worthless. You will amount to nothing.” Think back. Do you remember some variation of this from your “education”?

However, even if a teacher doesn’t directly insult the students, there is a meta-communication which runs right through the system. Many modern schools, especially public school, are still based on a military model. I tell you what to do, and you do it. If you don’t do what I tell you, you are disobedient, you are a bad kid, you shall be punished. If you survive this system with a capability for independent thought, you are the exception, not the rule.

How does schooling affect the way we think, for better or worse? Is it possible that you had some traumatic experiences there, that caused some mental scar tissue which may never completely heal? Have you forgotten so absolutely, that you would be willing to put your own children through the same thing? Let’s dive into these muddy waters of questions in the next exciting chapter of … The Paradise Paradox!
