According to proven facts and research, 65% of the kids in preschool today will work in a job or career that doesn’t yet exist.
Here is my apprehension…. HOW DO WE TEST AND CERTIFY PEOPLE FOR JOBS AND SKILLS THAT DON’T EXIST YET?
Every man is certified based on his prowess in what is taught and engraved on his mind. Thus, certification is not based on what is yet to be known! I mean to say, you can only be certified on the past you’ve known and not on the present or future. It also connotes that certificate has no capacity to handle the future (don’t be deceived, irrespective of the source), because the future is yet to be known by any mortal man.
Let me ask this question. Is there any certificate that has a glimpse of what is yet to be discovered or the newly emerging skills? I can boldly declare that, CERTIFICATE WILL NEVER BE SUFFICIENT ENOUGH WHEN IT COMES TO MAXIMIZING THE FUTURE AHEAD OF US.
When you attend any higher institutions, you’re awarded certificate that you’re well knowledgeable about the past and not the future, because all that you’re exposed to are what has once or many times been experimented and confirmed workable, but the past (the experimented, proven or workable) is too weak to proffer answers to the future..
It is time to drop the tangibles (past) for the proven intangibles (future). It is time we forsake our country, our kindred, and our father’s house, because their knowledge is drawn from the past (experience, culture and custom). SELAH!
