I don’t want to say education is unneeded, I simply wish it would change for the better. So let me get on with my point. Write the name of each continent on a piece of paper and place the 7 pieces of paper in a jar or bowl or bag. Let students come up one at a time and draw out a piece of paper.

I think you give public school far too much credit. It does not mean you will learn to get along with others, be able to write a paper according to a teacher’s wishes or get a date/get along with the opposite sex.
