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.

Yes, that's all it is. Here's the math, english, history, and science that you'll need for exams and possibly college.

Well in my country school system is a disaster, the European Union proclamed that we here in the Balkans have the worst school system in Europe, it's manly because of politics, and because of the war that happend here in 1992 so school are run by one nationality and their history and language is the dominant, also Sunday school, which religion is dominant that Sunday school you go(Sunday school is is your choose you can go or you don't go, manly most people go because it fixes the grade score). Both what you gonna do about it

the way i see it,the problem is heavy,but the students has to take a stand and let the government and their parents know that they are in charge of their life and they are the one to choose their future,not them...

some parents want their kids to become a doctor or a lawyer,when the kid wants to be a soldier or a cop or a musician,they are not properly supported thus when they grew they,they hated they life and do mess do things...

but ofcourse the parents and the goverment wont allow any kid or students to draw up the future,its them who draws the future...

In my opinion creativity is best explored freely. During school I always found art and literature painfully boring because I had so many rules about how a particular project should be done. I handed in one of those projects and got 65-70%. However when they gave me a free project, I always scored high 90-100%.

5 different projects is too much to learn one particular thing. If the student is interested, they can learn it fast, otherwise they'll never really learn it.

But the odds of someone discovering that they have a talent in something is rare if it's not "forced" upon them.

A lot of what I learnt at school is wasted in the real world... and a lot of what I didn't learn (basic life skills) I've had to gain by experience only. School is just for knowledge these days, and doesn't let you learn or explore anything that doesn't contribute to passing the set standards.

School never really taught me that much, maybe except for Shop class, biology and Accounting. My computer science courses were laughable. Can't tell you how much fun I had in locking all the computers from users via BIOS lockout.
In truth, I think school taught me to look out for myself more than anything.
I'm currently going to a university right now, and the teachers here are TONS better at what they know, and how they teach. Not to mention I don't have to ask for permission to use the rest room. Oh how I got mad at that.
