PostSubject: Truth hurts, but it is what it is.   Sun Jun 14, 2009 7:56 pm

This should be posted in all schools and work places

Love him or hate him, Bill sure hits the nail on the head with this!

Bill Gates recently gave a speech to High School students about

11 things they did not and will not learn in school. He talked about

how feel-good, politically correct teachings have created a generation

of kids with no concept of reality, and how this concept set them up

for failure in the real world.

Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it!

Rule 2: The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world

will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good

about yourself.

Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school.

You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.

Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.

Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents

had a different word for burger flipping; they called it opportunity.

Rule 6: If you mess up, it’s your fault; it's not your parents' fault,

so don't whine about your mistakes - learn from them.

Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they

are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes,

and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So,

before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's

generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.

Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers,

but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades

and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer.

That’s too bad because it doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to

ANYTHING in real life.

Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off,

and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF.

Do that on your own time.

Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to

leave the coffee shop and go to their jobs.

Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are - you'll end up working for one.

If you can read this - Thank a teacher!
If you're reading this in English- Thank a Veteran!
If you agree, pass it on.

I Agree with you, and this speech is great, but unfortunatly Bill Gates didn't give this speech. It's a rumor, This is where it came from. "It's an excerpt from the book "Dumbing Down our Kids" by educator Charles Sykes"
