I want to open a school that is based on Nerdfighter ideals, where all of the students, teachers and faculty are in agreement that education is not simply what you have to do to pass and be a real person someday. I know this is far-fetched and may never become anything legit, but it's some Brain Crack I've had for some time.
Education, learning, community, and all these other themes Nerdfighteria stands for is what young people need and want. Instead of simply memorizing and regurgitating information, you analyze and process. You use your resources and the people around you to further advance in society. If Nerdfighters can decrease world suck on a massive scale when they’ve never even met in person, imagine what could happen if those physical boundaries were crossed. Not only that, but it's been demonstrated that we want to learn, and we can learn voluntarily. Every single person in Nerdfighteria can attest to that. We naturally thirst for knowledge, but our education system doesn't play to that.
The idea that we’re not just learning so we can pass a test, but learning so that we can decrease world suck and increase awesome: That is what education should be founded on, and that is what Nerdfighters live on.
