Tom Chopin performs this song in response to the education landscape in America where, he believes, there is a heavy focus on teaching to the test. This has come at a cost to the Arts, Music, Thinking and Creativity.
He writes: “It’s no secret that American industry has outsourced most factory jobs to other countries to take advantage of cheaper labor costs. So why are we putting so much effort into a form of education in which there is no creativity? This is the time that our youth should be taught to think ”out of the box,” not be put into a tighter one!”
Reminds me of the Socrates quote “Wisdom begins In Wonder”
