The school system fails big time. Teach but human rights and basic Maths and basic English. The rest is up to the student's personal discretion. As above; Utilise your strengths and work on your weaknesses. Competency-based doesn't make educated idiots and don't forget that everyone is someone else's idiot as I am.
Schools do not teach you how to survive the real world, not in high school and not in college. So the question is, what 'competency' are they teaching you, especially if their system can't teach you anything beneficial at all ? LMAO can you even say 'competent' and 'school' in the same sentence without reading it back and thinking how strange that sounds.
