Would they listen if the KIDS told them?

By now, many of you may have heard about the recent high school valedictorian speech in which one very articulate young woman blasts the traditional educational system:

"Some of you may be thinking, “Well, if you pass a test, or become valedictorian, didn’t you learn something? Well, yes, you learned something, but not all that you could have. Perhaps, you only learned how to memorize names, places, and dates to later on forget in order to clear your mind for the next test. School is not all that it can be. Right now, it is a place for most people to determine that their goal is to get out as soon as possible."

Um, yeah...what she said.
