One Image Describes The Educational System

It would be more accurate if it was “To test aptitude to climb trees, we are going to have everyone climb the trees.” Sorry, but education is geared toward real-world application (at least college is if you don’t take a fluff major like philosophy). I’m sorry, but those who perform better in school GENERALLY perform better in real life. Is this always the case? No! Is it generally true? YES! If you can’t write clearly and cogently, perhaps you shouldn’t be writing office memoranda or otherwise communicating through writing where your words matter (law, civil service, etc). If you can’t do math, you probably shouldn’t be an accountant. If all you can do is dig ditches, you will be a ditch digger. It’s that simple.
