My own experience with the education system implied overwhelmingly to me, that it is not concerned with education, to anywhere near the degree that it is concerned with penal reform. The following video from John Taylor Gatto, confirms it.

If I was going to have children, my own approach would be a classical education via homeschooling, at least up until the tertiary level; which emphasis on the Great Books, in a manner similar to St John's College.

The Lost Tools of Learning by Dorothy Sayers. This is an essay on classical education, and the difference between it and the current form.

The education system is bad in every area, without exception.
But it refuses to change.
It seems exactly like a religious organization to me.
Which is funny because as education rises we know that the number of theists decrease.


Could religious groups be stopping education from progression and advancement?

A simple way to improve the education system 100 fold would be to remove learning by repetition. There are many methods to remember and learn things, and according to experts repetition is the WORST.
