The education-industrial complex is structured around organizing children by age. This is a bad idea for so many reasons. First among them is that this notion is based on a false assumption that young people of the same age have roughly the same skill level in subjects across the curriculum. Clearly, this is not the case. Even the maturity level between genders is a schism. Likewise, different students with different interests and interest levels have wildly different abilities.
