Teen's Dream

I dream that every kid has access to learning, but not just primary instruction, quality education. The kind of education that will let children become professionals and better people than us. My idea would contribute to SDG #4 and other goals, for instance, gender equality, reduced inequalities, and many others by teaching and spreading knowledge. Some people do not know how to do simple mathematical sums. Even reading texts like this one is an impossible task. A common cause for this is that education has become very expensive, and people cannot afford it. Is this what society wants to teach us? That the people who are lucky enough to get better pay than others are the ones that will succeed in life? Is this the future we are looking forward to? Nowadays, students can receive classes through virtual calls. My idea to help the problem of lack of learning disappear is to record these classes. Then, students can watch these classes through television or a youtube channel. One advantage of this plan is that classes can also be recorded in face-to-face modality. By showing them through a national television network, students from all over the country can see them. We would ask for assistance from the government and the ministry of education. Schools with better resources than others can contribute to this project by also recording the classes. If this project succeeds, it can become global, and lack of quality education can become a problem from the past. I recognize that my idea sounds too ambitious, but desperate times require desperate measures. And I would say these are desperate times considering that 7000 students drop out of high school each day. It is 2021 and lack of education is still a problem, but if we think of it, it all comes down to having a cell phone or camera-device to record. How can lack of education still be a problem in a society whose technology never stops evolving and improving? Lack of education is a problem I grew up with, and my parents and their parents, and honestly, I don’t want the next generation to have to go through the same, trying to solve a problem we could have by just believing in one idea. With all due respect, I would like to answer your question with another one. How do you want the next generation to remember you?
