Now That’s Motivation

Various commentators are often heard wondering why the U.S. education system is in such poor shape, and pundits around the country are constantly offering ways to fix it.

Did anyone stop to think that maybe, just maybe, the problem isn’t the system?

Anupam Kumar and his family would probably say it isn’t the American educational system that’s the problem. It’s the kids in it. See, when you live in a land where college is practically guaranteed, where you still see the possibility of making a decent living without a college degree, you don’t feel the pressure of having to succeed in school at all costs.

My peers in high school would have done well to study this story of Anupam Kumar and give it some serious thought.
