The goal of schools is not be a parent. Yes, The school system doesn’t teach money management, or how not to fuck yourself over with loans that you can’t afford. It doesn’t do anything like that. Those are the job of a parent. A school is meant to teach people how to think, not how to live in the “real world”. I agree that the us school system does a sub-par job at teaching people how to think. I agree that the focus is overly targeted towards memorization. I just think that the alternatives brought forth in this article also miss the point of what a school’s purpose is.
