Re: The school system is no longer about learning
School is there to teach the basics and to discover if you have potential to learn, if you want to. Memorising GCSE Biology for long enough to pass an exam shows a lot about you. Consider that a typical chav would struggle to find his colon with a colon map and a torch. Further education is where you find a career and really learn what you need to do that career.
What's the problem? You'll probably be selling drugs for a living anyway.
