Find Your Grind california

Complaint: I am a school administrator. I am in agreement that Find Your Grind is a scam designed to separate school districts from scarce money provided by taxpayers. There appears to be no basis in educational research or academics backing up the claims made by Find Your Grind that some students would be better off dropping out and playing video games. In fact, the people behind Find Your Grind are complete amateurs with zero experience in real-world education. I first came across Find Your Grind when a teacher brought the program to my attention. Their website is slick, but deceptively uses real-life examples of successful people to trick people into thinking that the Find Your Grind program was behind their success. Thereu2019s even testimonials from purported teachers singing the praises of the program, with buzzwords like u201cvirtual textbooku201d and u201cself-discovery platformu201d, whatever that means. But then you see quotes from one of the co-founders, Mike Smith, telling teachers to u201cPut down the 20-year-old textbooksu201d, and another to u201cDitch the corny and cheesy activitiesu201d. Do you mean dump classics of literature and history that, by definition, are older than 20 years? Find Your Grind is instructing teachers to dumb down their lesson plans for the benefit of a handful of students who canu2019t seem to appreciate a practical or classical education. Worse yet, the implication they make is that if school isnu2019t aligned with your u201cpassionu201d, then you should drop out. This is worse than fraud, itu2019s malpractice. Whatu2019s equally disturbing is Find Your Grind cites the largely discredited and pop-psychology u201cMaslowu2019s Hierarchy of Needsu201d as part of its so-called curriculum so students can supposedly u201clearn how stress and failure create obstacles in their lives.u201d First off, u201cfailureu201d is barely mentioned by Maslow, and u201cstressu201d is primarily brought up in the context of post-traumatic stress disorder suffered by war veterans, not bored kids sitting in a classroom. In other words, Find Your Grind is making it up as they go along. This is hardly a recipe for educational success. If this is supposedly an educational enterprise, why does Find Your Grind try to sell so much merchandise? Itu2019s called exploitation. Just like the corporations that use Find Your Grind to worm their way into schools under the cover of Find Your Grindu2019s program. Find Your Grind promotes u201cfreeu201d concerts, for example, that are sponsored by Amazon and seem to mostly be an excuse to promote co-founder Nick Grossu2019s boy band of wannabes. What any of this has to do with education escapes me. Co-founder Mike Smith uses Find Your Grind to promote his multi-million-dollar professional speaker business, and another of his companies that sells marketing campaigns to such educational-centric companies as Red Bull, Vans and the private-equity-owned Jostens ring empire.
