Alternative education as a countryside academism

We are constantly facing a need to supplement the incomplete academic programs that often fail to grasp the zeitgeist and be relevant today, and we seek to find alternatives to the ineffective academic formats.

However, this text attempts to find out why their goals often remain unachieved.
