I loathe the education system. I loathe every part of putting everyone in a box that the government controls and caters to their financial backers' interests.
I also loathe a random corporation shoving its religion down people's throats with an even more corrupt agenda as well as parents doing this at home via homeschooling. So, when you talk to me about education being broken, it's more of a 'survival of the fittest' kind of thing no matter how you try to cottonwool it for the masses.
Not everyone is smart enough to 'make it' in the world, we need road-pavers, wall painters, musicians, artists, shopkeepers and a whole array of people who have some form of genius that education can't cater to or measure. These people exist and are there in society, with no need at all for anything beyond rudimentary math, English (and/or their native tongue) and science (math including economics as in statistics) to handle their walk of life. These people are told to sit down, keep their mouths shut and study to regurgitate ideas and score a grade.
Let me put it like this. There are two very different types of brilliant players in league of legends; mechanical geniuses and macro geniuses. You will find that the mechanical geniuses can 'learn' the macro decision making and make it very far in the Pro scene, whereas the 'macro geniuses' cannot learn how to make ingenious flashy plays or how to handle a team where people don't think in the ways they do about the overall map and concept etc. They find it extremely hard to translate their talents into the pro scene but make fantastic players, often you will find that out of the top 20 players every season outside of the pro scene in the game itself's season ranking, 14 are macro players and 6 are brutal mechanical players. The 6 brutal mechanical players in any region often are either pros or could easily make it as pros if they had the ambition to do so whereas the macro geniuses are rarely even streamers, since they're introverted geniuses who just want to be left alone but if they are streamers they are very much the quiet type.
Let's look at something like movies. You can learn your way into becoming a great soap-opera rom-com maker but you cannot learn, nor measure via examination, the kind of genius of Tarantino, Spielsberg, George Lucas etc. They are brilliant, they prove it in practise but if you examined them on 'this is what the textbook says on directing', it's likely Tarantino would score lowest with the other 2 struggling to agree with the general consensus on certain parts.
