But it is what it is, and is integrated in society. What im saying is that the outside world doesnt care about grades, but character in a way. But in test preparation and instruction in general, it disciplines the student.

...which is wrong on every level.

Do you see that as positive?

I dont know exactly what you mean about individuals because it's early on, but i think that the cultural building is already a prime reason for education. The school teaches responsibility in the academic form, and the students learn how to fit into culture.

I had a conversation with a friend who is far smarter than i could ever be, but he brought up the point that in education, you learn tons. Primary school is huge growth, but it means nothing to get a job. Over your high school career, you again learn a lot. But if you drop out at 16, nobody cares and you're pushed aside. If you drop out right before graduating, you again are pushed aside and nobody cares. Only if you show that you can finish education are you recognized for your learning. And a lit of it has to do with showing resilience and competence in the business world, not what you learned.

as an high school student i have to say that we focus more on passing and scoring in tests. that has an advantage as well as disadvantages.
