Before too, I do not want to tell me that is what I will write utopian or it is a privilege that we have. Look around you, notice every detail, look at the society ... Something is changing, people are fed up with work, those who are wanting to quit your job to undertake and we are in a time of crisis, people are fed up. Not to mention the children, they are no longer as before and not even close, do what others did. Teachers are mere relays of knowledge, where students are tamed and disciplined. Each time, I realize more that children, adoloscentes and already some adults do not fit in references to other adults formerly had in its infancy. The problem is that if we give the same references that we used to, we become them as mediocre as the society that we form. I know that some say "More education!" WRONG Other "More respect for teachers" WRONG / TRUTH everyone deserves respect And many other "value the teaching professionals" WRONG Calm, not criticize already !! A question: The old paths lead us to new places? So what path we are treading? We want to follow the same paths that many criticize, and taught to children society we are today? Teachers need to reinvent their role because the information is no longer their prerogative. My opinion is that we do not need more than appreciation for teaching professionals, but a new school. If teaching serves the purpose of entering the labor market, and have some recognition, and ignorance serves the purpose of evil governates, when it is that teaching will serve to form good citizens, capable of transforming the society we live in? Do not you think? Live like this? Finish higher education, go to the labor market, subject us what they tell us, and we thought "after all it was not what I ever dreamed." And then we come across work, marry, Children, work, marry, Children, work, marry, Children. Having money, wanting to be superior to the others, have status, and take comfort? These are the aims of life? This is what the current education prepares us? With strong support from the media ... It makes you wonder .

Yah times are changing and kids have more access to knowledge than before through the internet. the world will always revolve and change it just depends on how you follow or fit in or reject the changes that are taking place around us each day. You can't stop technology and change anymore. It's here and it's now apart of our lives.

@poehere I liked your answer. I can not be eight hours sitting in a classroom listening to a teacher talk, not to mention here that the teaching method in Portugal, is still somewhat archaic!

@neutel12 Looks like you should pick up your book and move back home. Sign up online for home schooling. You will have more freedom and can take classes that you like. You're on your own and will have the web as your teachers. Give it a try you might like it better.
