I always prefer a very flexible educational system in a country than a very rigid one.
This is because I like to have as many different options and choices being available to me to choose from.
The more options and the more choices that are available to students to choose from, means that students will be happier, more satisfied, and more fulfilled in their very own educational/ academic pursuits, aspirations, and goals.
Having a very rigid education system means that I have at most a very limited number of options and choices to choose from.
Flexible education systems are often seen to be more open-minded, more modern and more receptive to the needs of students in a country.
Rigid education systems are frequently seen to be more narrow-minded, more conservative/ traditional, and less receptive to the needs of students in a country.
