after trying to understand your post i think i understand what you are going after
each level of education should find what that pupil is good at and push them that way as theres no point teaching a car mechanic poetry as a required subject but still ensuring that they have a firm grasp of the basics as if you cant add up you might lose money on the bill so really education is a pyramid of knowledge

I see your thinking I personally would say whatever the discipline, vocational or otherwise I think it should be looked into if it can be made shorter.
It just seems to me that people have a finite life and so if more coud be achieved educationally in less time then that would be good. Oe study suggested that the iq of people who succeed in getting a phd is the same as those who drop out of one. This is just one study but maybe that could be a way to shorten education.
That could remove 3-6 years depending where in the world you go to university.
