The current schooling system looks like this

Primary
Secondary
6th Form/College
University (optional but kinda needed in this day and age)


I think we should replace secondary school with depart specific schools such as

School Of Business
School Of Engineering
School of Law

the idea would be to still teach the basic's such as maths and english but spend the rest of the time doing the chosen disipline

I think this would be a alot better than secondary school as

we would have experts in there field at a much lower age than currently

most people become experts in there field around in there 30s,this system would allow kid's to learn more about there chosen career path from a very young age and then we could change the level of difficulty in 6th form and university

This would allow people of very young ages to have a very good knowledge of there fields as they have spent there school years and university years developing there passion RATHER than only there university years

I guess the general argument that i'm making is that school is far too broad to ever really help you in the future , they really need to decrease the amount of subjects that are forced so students can spend most of there time doing something that they actually want to do.

This would also help the economy as we would have university grad's with over 10 year's of knowledge from there field rather than only 5 (including 6th form years + 3 uni years)

Those schools are way too specific.

Is it right that from age 11 the state should predetermin a childs future job?

I would quite like the idea of 6th forms that specialised in say science or social science or arts. In a science 6th form, instead of A-Levels you would complete a diploma in science, giving you the option to take modules from across maths, bio, chem and physics + a few unrelated modules.

I think primary schools should increase the time they spend teaching kids about the future and the jobs they could get into.
I don't think pre-determining is the correct term as the kids will obviously get a choice to which school they attend

Could most 11 year olds even really understand what it means to become a lawyer or an engineer or a business man? Do most people end up being what they wanted to be age 11?

We already specialise at a younger age than many countries. Students strengths and interests aren't evident at 11 ...There are UTCs which you can go to at 14 if you want this sort of learning.

No, regardless of the amount of education they receive, I don't believe that most 11 year olds would the cognitive ability to make this type of decision.

I disagree; you need more "on the job" training, not more education (except maybe for spelling? "alot"? "in there 30s"?). Replace secondary/6th form schooling with grammar schools which are far better for social mobility, and reduce the number of university students by removing nonsense courses and also deciding whether some vocations really need degrees (e.g. nurses).

Sorry I'm not really educated of nursing but why don't nurses need degrees?
