                • Not to side with the education, but part of it is to help you think logically. Learning only what you're skilled at means you have extremely weak weaknesses, which could be bad. But still, I agree, our strengths should be more focused on. (Though that could be difficult)

School has done nothing but slow down my progress by forcing classes that I don’t need and adding unneeded stress. School has under qualified me for what i actually want.

And then all of your adolescent years are focused on only using one set of skills, and when you are done you realize that “this” isn’t what you wanted. However, you are incapable of using any other skill set and are unable to function in society.
