Boy, that's a heavy article to read! As a person who receives "formal education" his whole life, I have to admit that my thinking has been shaped to solve exam questions. While liberal arts education promises hope to restore, our intellectual capability, I do believe it has it's own downfall and flaws. It goes down to the person studying - does any system really matter if she has a genuine drive to seek the truth?
That said, kudos on the article! You have a strong voice in your writing. Nonetheless, from a writer to another writer, you should consider simplifying your article (introduction and main points) or at least, break it down into small paragraphs. Easy-to-read articles tend to make long way on Medium. All the best :)
