Thinking back to elementary, middle, and high school I can remember very little that I have actually needed to know outside of basic math and reading. So is there really a purpose to all those years of schooling. Is there a better way that could be more effective in teaching life lessons that doesn't involve this mass schooling system we have now?

Agreed, there's both good and bad in it. For me that means it needs reevaluating!
You're at the beginning of a new adventure with your little ones. Make sure you look into Common Core that is in the process of standardizing schools nationwide.
Completely agree. When times change our means of being educated must change with them.
I can agree more. For the most part, schools produce worker bees and are inflexible to the job market's ever-changing demands. Kids who are creative and/or want to be self employed have a rougher go of it unless their parents lead by example.
This is a great answer! I don't know if change can happen because of how set the schools are in addition to the schools also being babysitting service. Parents who work aren't going to want to be in charge of educating and finding apprenticeship. Sad
