I think the education system are followed by today's institutions is very bad because we are not creating genius or reproductive students we are generating only a book worms. They don't have any practical knowledge about work or many others things.

Although many may disagree, the education system has changed quite drastically in the past few decades. Although many students will say that the work load has worsened, it has not. However, the subjects that students take has morphed in to a system that best fits the needs of the students. There are few mandatory subjects, and many others to choose from. This helps students who, let's say, are specifically interested in arts. They are able to take design classes, art theory classes, etc., while students who may be interested in history may take classes such as ancient history, social studies, political science, etc. They say that stress has increased in students drastically over the past fifty years, but that is for many more reasons than school alone, such as media pressuring them to be perfect, relationships with friends and family, and monetary problems. The education system may not be perfect, but it's not even close to awful.

The education system is not desighned to create genuises, it is desighned to educate and that is what it does. It also supports clubs like DECA that kids can learn how to run buisnessis in, also, Drama for kids who want a career in that, also, shop, youth leadership, marketing, and so much more. It creats a social invironment for children while keeping them safe and provideing a babysitting servus so parents can go to work. Also school systems teach kids how to work together and effishently and how to be responsible or deal with consequences and to have respect for athority figgures.
School systems are so much more than book work. If someone doesn't get anything out of school the school system isn't failing them, they are failing themselves.
Finaly, public school systems were set up to provide free education for thoughs who couldn't afford it so for being a type of welfair its pretty dang great.
