Are we screwing our kids over with our one size fits a all education?

I find myself agreeing with you drae, but I suspect that you - like me - learn best by experience, not by the traditional method of receiving large chunks of information that we're expected to remember and regurgitate at test time. Some kids do very well in the school environment, some are bored shitless. And if you're bored, you're not learning.
My wife is proposing that we send our kids to private school which is very expensive here. "Don't you want to give them the best chance at life?" she asks me, emotional blackmail style.
I think the money could be better spent taking the kids on holidays / buying them a piano, etc. Because that's how I prefer to learn.
Anyway it's an interesting topic, particularly in this day and age. Interesting times to be a parent!
Tired but happy
