9781523259342: A Practical Guide to Teen Business and Cybersecurity - Volume 3: Entrepreneurialism, Bringing a Product to Market, Crisis Management for Beginners, ... Basics, Taking a Company Public and much more

Adolescent education is corrupt and flawed. The 'No Child Left Behind' reform succeeded in little more than eliminating the last remnants of a useful education, only to be reshaped into the systematic and federally enforced dumbing down of America's vibrant youth. From mathematics to science and from philosophy to business, the standard has dropped for both academics and those charged with the task of instructing our youth. Our children are being taught by societies misfits, not academic giants, as they would have you believe. School system administrators are wannabe CEO who couldn't make it in the real world and our school boards are populated by politically motivated identity crisis victims trying to reinvent themselves. Those who have the power to elevate the standard lack the intellectual capacity to do so and those who have the intellectual capacity (such as those reading this text) lack the time to get involved. If your time is limited and you still want to make a difference, start with the education of your child. This book series has been authored with you and your child in mind.
Currently, our standardized education platform that dictates the information introduced to your child is not meant to impart knowledge, rather it is meant to help them pass an annual test. This annual test is composed of mind numbingly academic questions that lack the most crucial component one is supposed to obtain through an education, knowledge. Education and knowledge are two completely separate things. Education is commoditized and redistributed by topic gate keepers selected by the establishment to instruct your child at the mediocre level that they see fit. Knowledge is the key ingredient in those 'ah ha' moments when critical thinking leads way to one's intellectual and social evolution.
Nowadays, the two key contributors to survival are the two topics the school system barely touches; business and cybersecurity. Teens are graduating high school without the ability to write a business plan, let alone balance a check book or write a press release for a business. In this virtual age, our children spend a majority of their free time online, yet schools don't even cover cybersecurity. The good news is, this series covers these crucial topics and then some.
Just like you, I've sat in my children's parent teacher meetings, listening to a teacher, seated with a pretentious posture, articulate, with vigor and manufactured conviction, my child's short comings in their class. Perhaps, unlike the reader, I precede to steer the conversation in the direction of having the teacher sell me on their academic and real life pedigree that qualifies them to make such statements. I ask them where I can buy a copy of their latest book and where I can download their latest whitepaper that was published by the niche hierarchy that validates them as an expert among their peers. I have yet to have one single teacher offer even one title they've published. I have, however, experienced, without fail an immediate change in posture, a mouth that was riddling my ears with my child's supposed shortcomings, silenced and a sudden insecurity that was represented every time I met with the teacher from then on.
Your child is not being taught by experts. They are being force-fed regurgitated content the teacher read in a book and pawns off as their own original thoughts, nothing more. Think about it. These automatons will read the standardized education syllabus that tells them what your child needs to know in order to pass the annual standard education test and they reverse engineer the spoon feeding of this cut and paste content. Where is the scholastic mastery we've been told was present by the establishment? Where is the articulation and communicative ingenuity that wins over your child's mind so that they can elevate their intellectual capacity for critical thinking?
