    Well this certainly isn't a prepubescent child giving it a terrible review just because they have to learn. You did well, Robert. You did well.

    It was about 3 years ago, that I had the circumstantial luck to discover what now became a beacon of hope… not just hope, but something more; an inspiration. Ever since the time of my enrollment to VHS I started taking ownership in my education. This is what VHS does to you, to revolutionize your view of the education that shapes your life. I just can’t stress enough; ever since I became a full time student at VHS, my curiosity to know, and explore the science was ever more nurtured, and encouraged as ever. It might help to question yourself; how much encouragement did you get for creative and more broad learning you devised on your own other than what the curriculum says you can do? The answer is probably none. In our old schools we can’t tackle anything other than curriculum expectations, nor can you get credit for taking a leap in your assignment. But, teachers at VHS are all up for such creative learning and “alternative means” so that you can be yourself in learning. Moreover, you can hand in your assignment whenever you want. You don’t get marks deducted for turning assignments in late. Well, in VHS, you get graded for your quality of work, and not when. If you are willing to do extra work, teachers will always give you credit for that, and they will help you through. This really lit a fire on my self-drive for learning. And as of right now, education is to me, is edutainment. Education has become an entertainment for me. It’s so fun and rewarding. As I am writing this I feel like I am playing a video game. I know it’s weird. Let me tell you how things have all changed. 4 years ago, I enrolled to a Canadian high school. Yes… as simple as that. I won’t mention the name, but my curiosity was crushed then. Everyday I woke up, day in and out of spending my life on a nice chair and a desk, and I listened 80% of the day because we got detention for questioning too much [Right, it was a boarding school]. Well, this sounds pretty reasonable. But I was really young then, I didn’t know much better. They might have seen me as an obnoxious rebel, but I think they deserved it. I kept getting words of discouragement for creative learning and sometimes questioning our teacher and even telling them that we didn’t like their method. He said to just be patient and listen and sit. Ha! Yeah that’s right I sat all day and listened thanks to you. But, it was not engaging at all. I knew there was a better way to learn and produce better quality work. After my first experience with traditional [They say tradition is a living faith of the dead.] high school, I got simply tried of it for its “oppressive” nature. I am glad VHS realizes that. Some things go left unspoken of. But, boarding schools are just another manifestation of what happened before, and while many are generous, some resemble cruelty more than others. Well, who were they to tell us what to do and what to seek in life? I thought education was for people to exercise freedom of speech and thought. Well great I thought. Now I was going to be brainwashed by a traditional school. This old school, being a tradition, I was going to give into the living faith of the dead. But as far as the saying goes, I am still “ALIVE” and as such entitled to freedom and my own life. Not a life dominated by the beliefs of dead people. To this day there exists “This-has-to-be-that-way” principle in brick and mortar schools. This is such an irony for our very techno-driven society. We have everything else every bit as revolutionary, but even teachers at my old school were skeptical that online education even exists. Ha! Well, I think that tells all about what’s going on. Tradition has brainwashed even the frontiers of today’s education. That alone tells you quite a bit. So if they are skeptical about learning, then well, so be it. I deserve skepticism too then. From then on, I surely without regret became skeptical about education. I thought quantification of individual identity and learning style by faiths of dead people kills the curiosity and yet promotes conformity without justification, and far from curiosity-pursuits education became something of a phobia-subjected symptom. But then, VHS has changed the whole concept of education; Learning becomes voluntary in VHS. If you don’t want to do it, leave it. If you want to do it, help yourself, it’s your own life after all. For those not into learning, better start working instead of wasting their life on what they are not to use later in life [which is so true]. This concept by Mr. Baker had renewed my view of education. Let me tell you, education is something you do for your own improvement. You don’t educate yourself just because others tell you to. The product of force induced [or-fear-of being-criticized-education] will manifest a dangerous self-disrespect and disguised image of the role education plays in your life. In VHS, you can choose what you’d like to do, you can progress at your own space without the need oppress your enthusiasm or be left behind because of your urgent Friday hangout with friends. Well but don’t flood your teacher’s mailbox with private questions. They will be nice to you if you are hungry for knowledge. Teachers are always there for you, assignments are not monotonous, and best of all, you have education at your fingertips. On your way to the airport between travels, or just a break from hike where you still got that 3G, you can complete your course in any situation imaginable. That’s right, education has taken a form of the world wide inter web and beyond. In other words, you embed education within you, rather than at the hands of parents or teachers in your high school. Education shapes you, and becomes your hobby. Today, I do this because I want to, I teach myself with amazing help from teachers because I care. And VHS has served me as a springboard to reach my maximum potential, or so I think. Even then, I am still very ignorant, which is a continuous drive to know more. Happily, I am already seeing the educational revolution about to be showcased in the next few years; digitalization of education/using technology to full potentials that allow for optimum learning on individual basis. In my case, VHS has been the first to inspire me. And I am sure, you will be no exception.
