This video is kind of long, but the subject is quite interesting. What do you think?

No. Bad teachers do. Schools are ran by a lot of teachers that have no idea how to teach and are there just to have a job. The part hat makes it difficult is the system tenure that ensure that the teacher will remain in their position for life. These people don't care about teaching to their ability, they only care that they're set for life and can do the bare minimum and still get paid.

The gap of quality in terms of teachers between high school and university is extremely huge. Like I can't even begin to explain how vastly better secondary education is. To top it off, the worse scores that kids get in primary, junior high, and high reflect how much of a budget that school gets. The worse students do on the standardized test, the worse the budget becomes for that school. And the shorter the budget is, the more extra cool stuff get shut down.

It's so bad that most schools (at least what I saw by High School) were that teachers were basically teaching the standardized test rather than the subject because so many were failing the state required test (TAKS). I was able to pass it first time without even trying.

Bad teachers + bad parents -> Poor Education Results.

And students at that level don't even realize it until maybe in your senior year when you're running out of time to graduate on time or you're in a situation where it's better to just drop out and get a GED.

But for example, my school didn't have theatre or dance classes. Sure we had music and art, but they were bullsh*t credits. And apparently now they don't even have any computer science courses, which is insane. But other than elementary school, school systems never really pushed to get students active in anything other than math, english, etc.

When i went to school we had theater, dance, and computer since courses along with a very large number of art classes to choose from. This was only a year ago so i dont think it has changed much since then.

I didn't even get to choose my fine arts class. Art class (which is basically drawing and painting) was a requirement. If you wanted to take dance or drama or music, you had to burn one of your electives to do it. I didn't like that much. Not everyone is cut out for drawing. Like me for example: I'm not really good at acting, drawing, or dancing...but I'm decent at playing an instrument (by instrument I mean piano).

In my university, they required one fine arts class as a core class for a Bachelor of Science and I was free to choose between any of the fine arts including music, drama, dance, shop, drawing, sculpting, etc. I like that freedom.

I was speaking of high school, I know you can take almost anything at college.

But I didn't discover my talent in theatre until I came to college. And that's because I was never introduced to theatre in my life.

i believe it is due to poor school leadership...

if a principal or dean is too easy and wont even bother disciplining or doing special check up time,teachers would surely run wild and would just behave well when they knew they are being watched or checked..

mostly it's in public schools that fails school leadership,but mostly in private schools teachers cant go easy and be a mess up teacher.knowing that their salary comes from the paying students' parents,while in public,teachers dont really care coz it's the gov that pays them and mostly the gov dont even knew nor care...

maybe it's wrong to revolt or go on strike,the students should do it when teachers mess up,only then would the teachers be desciplined...

Well I can't speak for schools from other countries, but over here the problem seems to be the rigid nature of the curriculum.

Students are only taught exactly what is necessary to pass exams and rarely anything more.
