90% (or more) of what we learn in schools is NOT subject related
It also seems important to me to learn like skills, because the Internet and the world around us changes rapidly and constantly. I would rather learn about dealing with the world, than learn about knowledge that was considered usefull 50 or more years ago. That way people can learn how to survive in an ever changing environment, with core skills, and the schools don't have to keep on teaching things that aren't relevant anymore.

Education is not about school, is the passion for knowledge.
I partially agree with you. School is not just about knowledge, it's also about skills. The last couple of years, I came to see my education as a hurdle to being able to do what I want to do. It's not a facilitator, which I find depressing. One of the great complications in education reformation, is in my opinion the emphasis on standardized testing. Not just the curriculum has to be changed, the way we seem to have a need for subject-related scores is detrimental to true education. I get that people want standardized scores to know the potential of a learner, but I think testing can be more focused on learning skills instead of subject-related knowledge that learners have crammed mindlessly.
