Alternative Education Opportunities
I think that since every single person learns differently, there can't be a perfect school system in which every person learns what they need to. Sure, there will be imperfect teachers, bad situations at home, etc., but a lot of the time it's because the kids don't learn very well in a classroom environment. I have seen geniuses throw their lives away because of the fact that they have to spend time in school to prove their smarts.
For this reason, I think there should be alternative commons for learning so that students can learn the way that they need to. We could keep the tests the same for the kids in school as for the kids learning from their needed methods (not sure what they are, but can be discussed below) in order to stay consistent with the kids that are in school.
