Of course! However, what is taught should be looked at in a way to prepare students to be future leaders. Too much time is spent on antiquated skills (ex. cursive writing) and there are important lessons that are missing. Kids should be taught to grasp opportunity and make opportunity where they can. Students are forced to follow whatever the teacher says and not think on their own during their whole academic career. Then when they graduate, they expect to always be told what to do rather than think on their own. During my college years I felt I learned more on my own from my own personal reading than from anything that I got in college.
