Here's the B.F. Skinner quote that I absentmindedly forgot to put into the essay:

"Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten."
You put a lot into this essay and your depth of knowledge is clearly demonstrated. Keep writing!
This is a good assessment of our current educational system, especially where you indicate the outcomes from teaching just a little of this-and-that without taking the time to dig deeper into meaningful topics. I think your suggestions would work especially well in a homeschool or small classroom setting.
Oh, by the way--I got so caught up in the thought behind the writing that I forgot to comment on the writing itself: the essay is well constructed. Nice job. :)
