"Schools, after all, are supposed to be places where we prepare new generations for a positive future in today’s world. The problem is that despite all we know about the world we live in, the mainstream narrative is still that a positive future, or ‘success’, just means fitting into the current story by getting a well-paid job.

Consequently, teachers teach an academic curriculum that covers some problems we face in the world, such as the consequences of climate change, but covers very little about how the current industrial growth society we live in today is causing these problems, and even less about what we can do to change it.

This is the case in academic institutions the world over, and it is not surprising. Conventional (mainstream) schooling is outdated, and designed to prepare us to go into the workforce and contribute to a failing system which, we all know, is rapidly destroying the planet and us."
