Yes I have said it. Yes I know it's not the teachers fault they do not have control over the curriculum.
We educate people for nearly 20 years and almost 60% of them graduate with degrees and no marketable skills. Ok, so 18 year olds make bad choices
under poor guidance, I get it. I do not hold 18 year olds solely responsible for the choices they make, after all I was a total moron until I hit 25.
I have been teaching kids for years and something I have come across is that they are in fact more teachable than adults and learn at faster paces and
with the right attention are equally as skilled. My position is that if we focus our education system less on well roundedness and more on specialty
we will achieve higher grades of success and our populace will be far more skilled and able to achieve more professionally and personally.
This issue not only exist at lower levels of education but it also exist in higher levels of education as well.. look no further than the
accreditation program of the US.

Here in our Cyber Security degree we have what I can only consider to be a COMPLETE WASTE OF VALUABLE TIME!
Cyber security is a totally massive topic that requires very high technical skill and leaves business most at risk. Now why in the hell are they
wasting students time on health classes when they should have learned that in elementary school??
We need to start making big changes in this country and we need to do it soon.
My solution to this problem is to decentralize the entire process and give schools and teachers the autonomy they need to create programs that compete
with other autonomous systems. Competition is the driving force behind innovation and parents will be able to choose to put their kids in the most
successful and well programs this country should have to offer.
