Most of the education systems were designed to meet the economic interests of those times-- times that were dominated by the Industrial Revolution in Europe and America. Math, science, and language skills were essential for jobs in the Industrial economies. the other big influence on education has been the academic cultural of universities, which has tended to push aside any sort of activity that involves the heart, the body, the senses, and a good portion of our actual brains. the result is that school systems everywhere inculcate us with a very narrow view intelligence and capacity and overvalue particular sorts of talent and ability. .....this stratified, one-size-fits-all approach to education marginalized all of those who do not take naturally to learning this way.
