The Prussian based education system brought over from Germany to create obedient and industrious citizenry all across the Western World including America through Horace Mann. It destroys creativity, intuitiveness, critical thinking, creates a follower mentality, and destroys social skills (be quiet). The only good thing to possibly come out of school is a good memory and some very basic knowledge of language, science, and math. You must always teach yourself by getting the truely empowering information which can be found on my website and it's sources.
All elite people have the children go to private schools, public schools don't teach success principles, they focus on the how not the why (attitude). With attitude comes the aptitude.
Let's be honest, school only teaches memory and obedience. Get a real education by educating yourself.
