Education today:
Education is done mostly by state or lobby controlled, extremely regulated educational institutions and the media.
A basic skillset in language and trival sciences is still part of this education.
The predominant portion of information taught is directed at creating a well functioning, perfectly indoctrinated voter and consumer.
Neglected or strategically repressed today is training critical and original thinking and educating individuals to challenge the existing socio-economic system and hence help evolve it.
Conformity is rewarded, diversity is supressed or even punished.
Social skills, free creativity, and original, independent thinking are hardly aspects of today's typical education. The the focus lies almost entirely on intellectual skills and a proper indoctrination to make individuals manageable and manipulate-able.
