I had an eye opening experience and some closure about my own eduction after reading a certain book, a collection of short biographic accounts of famous Germans and their horrific experience in school during the last few centuries. School has always been bad and actually used to be borderline insane, and yet these great characters, politicians, artists and scientists still developed fine.

Rant: If society gave a shit teacher would be the highest paid job with the highest standards, both in knowledge and in teaching skill. I mean literally 500k/year for the most noble calling on earth. The kind of progress humanity would make with a generation taught by the best, and teaching itself revolutionized, would be crazy.
