Theres so much civilizations, wonders of the world that we're not taught. Maybe if those things were placed into our text books our youth would be way more interested in school.

It's true that it is hard to fit everything in, but I think they could at least make it more interesting. I didn't truly learn critical thinking skills until college though.
I think it maybe depends on where you're from and what school you go to, but I found most stuff at school was interesting. I went to a grammar school and learning to think for ourselves was really important for us, so that we knew before university.
They build what we need to know in a way that it appears that we don't. They teach us as if history never changes but it changes every day and new things are discovered about our past everyday so why is there still no change ?
We're not limited in time teachers build guides on how much time to give a topic and theres a lot of topics that we spend too much time on we have time. They just don't want us gaining too much knowledge thats why some people have to dig their selves
Theres honestly so many things that we learn that can not help us in our future, which they aren't concerned about so if they're going to limit our knowledge why not make it interesting and teach us more than "the basic"
I totally agree, schools need to teach things that are more relevant for the real world. They spend a lot of time on subject matter that you don't end up using later on, unless you happen to pick a career that involves math, chemistry, etc.
Im not I just feel like so many kids drop out of school and I know quite a few and most of the time its because they feel like they don't belong like what we're taught is irrelevant. But maybe if they add some adjustments things will progress.
