Re: Scholars everywhere but...

Someone, previously took umbrage to my suggestion that a proper and well rounded primary/grammer school education was enough to help a child decide on a career path. Let me also add, that lower and upper sixth form graduates are not equipped to educate anyone as they barely have an understanding of the subject matter themselves. Neither, except for some rare instances, do they possess the maturity, discipline and patience required of a teacher at that age. The best they can be are teachers' assistants or apprentices, if teaching is their chosen career path.
It is refreshing to read someone else's views on our failed and failing education system, one that places the blame where it ought to be placed on the system's architects.
The world owes its many technological advancements to a bunch of drop outs and misfits. The truant or rebel who is the scourge of the classroom could become a captain of industry if only our educational infrastructure would evolve to become one of inclusion rather than exclusion. Our methods are as Dogmatic as the many religious organizations we have entrusted with its execution.
And, the poor and unfortunate who refuse to have their creative instincts subjugated are destined from the start, to become members of society's outcasts.
