when will america learn….

We won’t learn, because our education system sucks

Instead of treating kids like machines in a factory, being created into obedient workers. It looks like in Finland they’re treated like actual humans.

it’s also because all teachers there have masters’ degrees, and teaching is seen as a prestigious profession like medicine or law.

What’s actually wrong with American schools is not that they’re not like Finnish schools.
What’s wrong with American schools is that they’re an outdated relic of the early 20th century, where the object was to train a child to have the mindset required to work in a factory job long hours of the day, as at the time that mandatory public school was instituted, that was the main expectation of children.
As the industrial age faded and the US entered the era of private sector jobs, the education system failed to reflect that change, and they’re still training us to have the mindset for an industrial job, not a job in today’s job market.
The problem with American schools is not that they’re not like Finnish schools.
The problem with American schools is that they’re preparing us for jobs that no longer exist.

That bold text.. 😔

The slightly disturbing Comic Artwork and Illustration of

Benjamin Constantine

Everytime I flip through a “Plump Oyster” comic book I get this warm, damp feeling as if the room had suddenly become intensely humid. I get lost on adventures with his crazy-eyed characters, always sweaty and always drooling, in a land filled with strange alien like flora and oozing orifices. I have been transported to the ‘world of the oyster’ and I love it there!

Since 2007, Brisbane based Benjamin Constantine has been steadily building his strange universe through his Plump Oyster comics and paintings. His work has been featured in many national street press magazines as well as international publications like VICE, Rabid Rabbit and Secret Prison.

Check out his comic ‘OYSTER FACE’ - A 40 page comic book about a boy who was evicted from his river-side apartment 50 miles away from the beach and took it upon himself to evolve into shellfish and live in a dank, wet rock-hole by the sea.

Fun and insane as it should be.
