Yes.  Schools and education should do something useful and talk
about and teach hygiene, desire for self-reflection, diet,
endogenous hormone production (sports, sex), enable the capability
of naming of environmental species, and other things that many
non-western cultures cultivated.  You maybe do not have to drink
your own morning urine for proper (body) self-reflection, but
i think "even that" gets more to the point of caring for and
protecting the masses then not changing the clock twice a year, in
my opinion.

A nice weekend i wish,
