Abraham Kim Posted almost 2 years ago Are young adults today lacking life skills that inhibit them to determine an individual life track? Thanks for your response as you made some great points. Education has this problem of evaluating schools with numbers. This drives the wrong kind of pressures on staff and teachers to focus on the subjects that can be systematized the most. This meaning science and math and reading. This is where coming out secure but failing makes sense. The tests don't measure how successful the student is going to be in real life. Sir Ken also mentions that education formed during the same time for everyone which was during the industrial revolution. Education was meant to create good workers and not good thinkers. I also blame how competitive teachers and schools make it. This carries on to the bullying and social anxiety in teenagers.
