Another thing I think that should be changed is the sort of content that is told from a philosophical standpoint. From that, I mean, there should be a greater amount of time spent on teaching non-Western literature, history, and philosophies. I mean, the Greco-Roman period is fine and all, but a good deal of intellectual content developed in that time period was either created or innovated by other cultures that usually perfected concepts, often times years earlier. Of course, a good deal of those cultures have been made extinct by Western supremacists.

The point is, Western ideals aren't everything in life, and I'd rather have a more global perspective.
