My view on education is simple. Education does not create an Albert Einstein or a King Shaka Zulu. Brilliance and more than average IQs cannot be taught in a formal classroom. I am yet to see a professor who will tell me that his area of expertise is teaching people to attain higher IQs.
Education was given the shape and organisation it has to increase predictability in training people. Not that there were no engineers and military strategist before these were presented as formal qualifications. But to rely on forces of nature to produce a Plato or Leonardo Da Vinci would have put the advancement of society at risk.
Nobody knows how long the world will see another Hugo Chavez, Nelson Mandela or Bill Gates.
