I'm a huge believer that being smart is not something academic, but something natural. We go to school/college to obtain a fuckin title... WE PAY THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS for a diploma.. It's ok, it's totally normal but I don't understand the whole grade-a-student.. The educational system is a shit almost everywhere because people are more interesed in gaining a high grade no matter how soon the "learned-information" will go out of your mind than actually LEARN.
It's something bizarre and it's the main fault of today society shadows. I really wouldn't know how to change this whole system but at least I would rather be an F student that learned something that an A student that just forgot everything he studied.
