Day 307 Psychology vs Reality

Today I volunteered with a youth robotics competition. While it didn’t really have a lot to do with me, it’s interesting to wonder what would happen if I participated in different events as a child than what I actually participated in. Additionally, as someone very into psychology I always look at some of the “best case scenarios” and wonder how to maximize school and childhood. Maybe it sounds bad, but I think there should be more tests done on children than what IRB’s might approve of. I’m not saying random genetic tests or anything of the sort, but rather I think testing pure autonomous education would be very interesting. However, some would argue that the pros might not outweigh the cons of people being completely unable to learn. Although some critics might point out that is already the case, so if a broken system is broken why not switch to a new system? Even if it’s imperfect there is a chance that you can at least fix some of it’s issues, or it might lead to a set of progression that eventually leads to a system of change. However, it’s said that impossible is doing the same thing over and over and expecting the outcome to change.
