We should adopt the German or English systems. The Germans have "trade schools" which teach useful skills that can be applied to a real job. The English make you choose your focus before university while you are doing your A-levels in college and you go far more in depth in your field during university. I think the US liberal arts education system just "glosses" over a ton of subjects, not really giving you any useful skills nor knowledge of any particular subject, forcing people to learn pretty much everything on the job. The only major exceptions that reflect more focused applicable study are engineering and certain business majors.
