There’s a lot more to it than this. Personally, I think schools are ineffective because they prepare students for a world that no longer exists. We don’t need exam-passers and fact-regurgitators. We need artists and inventors and risk takers. The current school system sucks our tolerance of risk when it should encourage it.
