[NB: BPP = Best Practice Parenting]
This 2016 viral video (Over 10 million views & 25k comments between YouTube and Facebook in its first FOUR days!) perfectly captures the essence of the message I’ve been preaching about the SERIOUS FLAWS in our Modern Schooling System that make learners’ exposure to it, insufficient preparation for success achievement.
I only watched it for the first time 2 days ago (on 2nd Oct. 2018), but I’ve been pleasantly surprised to find key points, examples, analogies, and illustrations it uses are some of those I discussed in my 2018 published 62 page paper titled “Schooling is a Means to an End, and NOT an End In Itself” and the shorter sequel “Stop Letting Nigerian Schools Cheat You and Your Child” e.g the quote about school “making fish climb trees” & references to Finland, Khan Academy, Montessori etc.

Published as a Spoken Word Poetic rendition by the rapper Prince EA in 2016, this video boldly calls out the Modern Day Schooling System for its potentially “lethal” negative impact on learners.
This video explains why/how modern day schooling may hurt your child.
The compelling case made against today’s ANTIQUATED schooling system, uses a court room prosecution style against a symbolic representative of the schooling system (as defendant).
If your society refuses (or is slow) to eliminate those negatives, it’s up to you to protect your child from them and provide him/her what is missing from available schooling.
Only persons UN-willing to be objective will fault the arguments presented in this video… and in my White Paper/the sequel to it
Like I’ve repeatedly said in my writing, on this theme, the harmful attributes of our schooling system, coupled with endemic corruption, drove me to (temporarily) withdraw my kids from the system, and develop/implement an alternative educational model, that I call a Vocational Skills Based Educational System.
My adopted approach involves use of a tool I call a “Life Skills Training Matrix” that enables me customize learning for each child, based on his/her unique needs, interests and talents/gifts, so s/he end up with useful competence to succeed in or out of paid employment.

The Life Skills Training Matrix is a tool I developed to CUSTOMIZE education for EACH of my kids to ensure they actualize their full God given potentials in life by maximizing their unique gifts/talents.
I strongly recommend that other parents adopt a similar approach to ensure their kids get a truly balanced education that equips them to achieve financial and material success, with fulfilment in life.
For those looking for help, I offer a special Best Practice Parenting Coaching program for members of groups and organisations, in which I explain how to design a custom Life Skills Training Matrix for ANY child – or indeed ANY adult…and how to use it.
