If strictly to the question "how much", then to the extent that it does not turn away from learning, but leads to the desire for constant education, and not just "crusts".
If by school education is meant the subjects studied at school, then they are needed in order, firstly, to have the knowledge necessary for everyday life, and secondly, to get an intellectual basis for higher education or professional skills.
But if school as an institution is meant by school education, then there are alternatives - for example, online schools. Their advantages are an individual approach, interesting and modern teaching materials and the opportunity to study in a convenient mode and in a comfortable environment. You do not have to completely switch to online education, but pull up only the necessary subjects. English and math, for example, are taught at Skysmart.
It is necessary, extremely necessary. But not in the form that exists in the post. Soviet space. School is an environment where a child lives part of his small life. And the goal of the school is not to drive it into a framework and adjust to a general standard, but to teach to communicate, i.e. communication, teach learning and love learning.
So much so that everyone needs it. I will not talk about how important all subjects are, but I will give a specific example. In order to understand the mechanism of development of heart defects, I had to open textbooks on physics and repeat the movement of fluids and a few more topics. How much easier it would be if I learned it at school. In general, when I was a schoolgirl, I would never have thought that I would have to repeat physics after 20 years.
Hello! School education is different. Depends on which educational program is chosen by the administration. Alas, many schools today are chasing ratings and funding without paying due attention to making the EP interesting. But there are others who strive to make the educational process interesting and useful without chasing a rating. There are also specific schools, for example, Waldorf or Montessori - they provide special training for students. True, these guys then find it difficult to integrate into society, there is a discord between how the system of our state works and how they are brought up.
As the philosophers of education say, school education will soon cease to be of great importance. An individual educational program will come to the fore. I jokingly call this a return to the Middle Ages, to the models of Oxford and Cambridge, where students formed their own educational programs. This way the school will change a lot, I hope.
Does need anyone ?
Mankind, state, society, personality? What school education and in what country?
Probably, we are talking about a Russian secondary school. An adult citizen of the Russian Federation uses no more than 5% of the knowledge offered by the school.
The importance of subjects for an average statistical person:
Mathematical: Algebra (initial / secondary-base), Geometry (secondary / base-course), Information (base-course ).
Social Science: History (primary / secondary), Geography (secondary).
Natural Science: Biology (primary / secondary), Physics (secondary), Chemistry (primary / secondary).
Philological: Russian / English (basic -course), Literature (initial / secondary-base).
Labor training: Labor (base), Technology (initial base), Drawing (base).
PS - You put effort on those items that are closest to you, master the rest as best you can, but do not start. You can learn everything else online or go to courses.
Hello everyone. I want to get a tattoo, but I don't know how to go to couples with her. Do you need to make a bandage from a baby diaper or just smear with ointment? In what clothes to wear?
