Do today's educational institutions produce individuals with anti-social behavior or is it the society at large?
Education is supposed to improve a person's intelligence in a well rounded fashion, or that is at least my assumption. A specified skill(s) is very important, but too often has education seem to fail to teach people to be more social or collaborate with other people. These specialized minds only seem to be looking out for their own self-interests and will trample over anyone who doesn't meet eye to eye with them.
I, having previously lacked many social skills for an array of reasons, but I have become more aware of my behavior which I have changed much since then, can see that there is a collapse of etiquette and decency in people's social interactions in the younger demographics of people (around K-12 to early college)
The individuals with social and well rounded families have a higher chance of succeeding in this world, but what about most other families that have only known hard labor and hustling to provide for their children?
I think I see an issue, but am not entirely sure if my single perception has any credibility.
Is educational institutions providing future generations with the skills to sufficiently communicate and collaborate with people who they are close to and people outside of their comfort zones or is another leading factor to anti social behavior in the society at large?
