Why our Education System needs to be improved?

Recently there has been much debate over the increasing need of tuition to be deemed compulsory by parents for their kids from as young as Primary 1. There has also been letters to the press that the tuition centres here are outdoing one another by coming out with extra-difficult questions for the students. In this regards, I think our education system has failed. We should not train students to solve the most difficult problems; we should train our students to ask the most difficult questions.
Having come so far myself, despite getting brilliant grades in school, I find most of the things I have studied not being used at work. At the most, all the training I have undergone in school has sharpened my analytical and reasoning skills, but that is at most all of it. I do not think our school has prepared students well for the school of life.
