Yes, most educational systems are outdated.
The most common form of education was developed in the early industrial era, and was a practical way of preparing young people for factory work.
Uniformity, compartmentalization, respect for authority and so on. Later on we spiced it up with some consumer mentality - all very crippling for the
Studies show that children become gradually less creative the older they get, not due to natural processes, but as a result of our educational systems
forcing them to repeat the same thought patterns over and over again. Basically the opposite of thinking outside the box.
But! That doesn't mean that a elementary school, a high school or any such institution should ever waste it time with unproven hypothesis', and
especially not pseudoscientific nonsense like ghosts and NDEs. I feel sick to my stomach just from hearing such an absurd suggestions.
Children should be taught what we know for sure, we just need to change the way it is taught.

The largest crime in my opinion is the suppression of the unknown. Its not that the information is not available, its just not taught.
Between ghosts, UFO's, NDE's, etc., we use the science that we are taught and not the imagination that we were born with.
No one can supress the unknown, cause they wouldn't be aware of it. They can supress the known, which might be the case with some things. They can
stop you from exploring the unknown, but why would they(?).
But most likely they are just trying to teach you that in order to understand, evaluate and judge claims, such as the excistense ghosts, WE ALSO NEED
DATA! AND PROOF! AND EVIDENCE!!!!!! Not just our imagination.
