How is it too much to ask the education system to educate people?

You can't teach people everything they need to know.
I don't know western education system but IMO the point of education is to show _how to think_ + some baseline knowledge.

Nor does it help that the education system doesn't even point people in the right direction.

Who defines the "right" direction for every given individual?

It doesn't matter if a subset of linear algebra can be learned in a day, if you don't know that that's what you need to know.

This is a really lame excuse. Now almost any information is a couple of clicks away.
