Do you agree with this?
i personally do, because not all of us are the same, not all of us have brain built the same way.
like for some it is easier to learn by listening and for some by reading, there are many ways how our education system is so wrong.
of course it needs things like basic math and languages, because those are tools that will help us in life, but at the same time it lacks lots of things about how to live a life.
it doesn't teach communication with people, it doesn't teach enough about people (because we actually have to understand how we work to be able to function well, sort of like a manual), and it teaches only one standardized way.
the school doesn't prepare people for life, it just prepares people for exams to be passed and then it's not done very well. you could say that it's parents job for that, but even parents can't do that, because they haven't been prepared, and they have been taught by the same school system.
and it's one of the most important things in a person's life, because that prepares us for living ourselves, yet, it's failing majority of people and it doesn't do what it should do - understand and prepare people for a fulfilling life.
that's why i think it's failing huge way, and it needs reform, and at the same time, i know that it won't be easy, because it requires a lot of change not of the system itself, but of the people in the system itself.
