Education

Study

Read

Write

Calculate

Sit

Silence

They barked at me

So I did them dutifully

Maybe if they had added

Explore

Create

Muse

Invent

Discover

Play

I’d have done ‘em with glee

And I’d have learnt more

‘Cause I’d have thought for myself

  1. OMG, You don't know long i have thought about this myself. You couldn't have said it any better. Sometimes Ghanaian teachers focus on the wrong things. How can you lash someone because they do not know the answer to a question, without even giving clues. (LOL, Yes, i'm bitter, i'm one of those who got lashed for getting 9 out of 10 in a test. lol)

  3. Shels, I can see it still 'paining' you. Hehehe.
    Sorry, couldn't help it. But seriously, our education is so narrow that we come out of school not knowing how to be innovative. No wonder we are still poor as a nation.
