Is dance as important as mathematics?
Yes, in different situation. When you are clubbing, dance is more important than math, definitely.
What does clubbing mean?
It' means to go to dance clubs and dance.
I have no rhythm.
That doesn't matter they turn the music up so loud, you don't have a choice
All you have to do is jump jump jump.
But dance is not valued as much as an important subject in Taiwan. There's no subject called 'dance'
But it's an important social skill!
There's no social skill class.
That's a problem, you have to learn by yourself.
Actually, math, you only need to add and subtract and multiply and divide.
Actually, in the modern world, you need statistics. This has been coming up on internet discussions latetely. If you know statistics, governments and corporations can't pull the wool over your eyes, you can deconstruct arguments.
Logic. We're not taught logic.
Logic is so important for everything!
Can you elaborate?
Even communication needs logic. If you describe a thing without logic, it's just like a flying cloud. And others can't catch up your ideas or what you want to describe, so I think it's so important.
Maybe about all these questions, we should ask ourselves, first, whether we need an education system. Maybe all we need is a system to help us share and organize knowledge, such as wiki, or for example, most people learn what they need in their life, including cooking, or makeup, from, like, bloggers.
"I think our school system should not only focus on knowledge based learning, because right now, if you just get on the internet, you can just learn anything that you want to learn. I think our education system should help us figure out who we are and what we are, and what we are good at. And I think our school system should help us equip with the ability to continue learning after school, and I think, the most important thing is, to help us accept what we really are, instead of try to change ourselves to be someone else."
-I think education still plays a very important role to provide most of the kids some basic knowledge, and give them the chance to touch a lot of different fields, and make friends, and know about themselves more. And I think things, the education system is not so perfect now, it maybe can not satisfy all the kids needs, because everyone needs a different education but I still appreciate that it provide a lot of stimulations or hint to myself.
-Even in prison, you can make friends and get a lot of stimulation
-There's also a saying, the more schools we have, the less prisons we need.
-Because schools are like prisons?
-Because we have to be in school all day!
-Yeah, if you see a kid during the day, you're like, oh, they're out of prison...
-And they have like a uniform we know which school have to go to.
-And if they don't go they're also punished.
