Pro

School should be simplified because students learn things they will never need. Furthermore, schools should specialize in career based venutures, like engineering, business, psycology, etc..

Pro

School specialization will make people more skilled for their jobs. Furthermore, if the idea of school is based on real life scenarios, problem solving would taught and writing would be taught. Both of these need to be learned.
