Schools need overhauls anyway because of technology. Our children could be educated to create a world where most of the work is done by robots, have radically different economies and they would only need to work 20-30 hours a week and then only have science, entertainment or made up jobs I can't imagine yet probably most of them providing services. But instead there are still many schools that still use paper books rather than computers because of budget constraints.
it seems to only serve the system....it largely neglects talents and creativity in order to churn out kids to fill the positions created by the system...neglects to teach kids life skills, and most importantly how to change the system (I.e politics)......
