The purpose of education is to teach us everything there is to know so we can be smart enough to solve all of our problems. The over-abundance of problems proves that the academic establishment has not only failed, but is a total farce that only teaches people how to excel at stupidity. Educators should be held accountable for their incompetence, irresponsibility, and dereliction of duty. The whole operation is a bureaucratic behemoth that devours dollars, belches bachelor degrees, farts fraternities, vomits valedictorians, and shits sheepskins.
The current system is not an example of true education, but it's been deeply entrenched for so long that people accept it for what it is, or isn't. The organizational administration is counter-productive, and any advocate of such a feeble fiefdom is a narrow-minded nuisance who should be flogged in the town square, or the next PTA meeting.
Not only do students learn the three Rs, they also learn social skills like partying with drugs & alcohol, date raping, schoolyard bullying, and violent competitive contact sports The administrative hierarchy is a militaristic model that pits the school staff against the students, who they treat like enemy POWs.
Most school officials are former military men because they couldn't get a job anywhere else, but they fit right in with the power structure of the educational regime. And because the military engages in heinous acts of murder and terror, student massacres are a byproduct of this culture. It's a regular routine now: Kids show up at school with semiautomatic assault rifles to express their dismay with the faculty, administration and their peers.
