It depends. Some religions are incredibly syncretic like Buddhism/ other Eastern religions and don't have a concept of "one true religion or doctrine", so they do lend themselves to being blended. Others claim to be the only truth (Christianity, Islam) so those wouldn't allow combination.  A lot of religions are actually a mix of multiple traditions. Sikhism, Baha'i, Gnosticism to name a few.

Because different countries' schooling systems need to be different as each country is different and has different needs like Finland's schooling system and Korea's schooling system are very different but both the systems are considered to be excellent.    I personally think that more than schools it depends on the teachers. For example, in India, CCE was introduced to make studies more practical and applicable but because many teachers did not understand the system properly it only ended up becoming a pain for us and the level of our studies dropped making parents think that the system was not good.  I completely agree. More than curriculum (although important), it's teachers that make the difference in the quality of a school system. Yes, education will be different from country to country, but I think at bottom everyone wants kids learning the basics as well as info relevant to when they enter the workforce.  What do we consider excellent? Korea may have good science and math scores, but do their students have creative thinking skills? Can they problem solve or think critically? We tend to think of "good" schools excelling in rote knowledge, but is that all that matters? I'd say no.

To be fair, aren't most American high schoolers are required to take economic senior year or somewhere around there, where they should be teaching you about personal finance? That was my experience. My school also offers a financial literacy course, but I do think should be mandatory. But yeah, issues in education is a tired refrain, but I don't see widespread improvement. I think about changing the way we do teaching itself. I don't think teachers are paid enough or are given enough freedom with curriculum. It's no longer seen as a respectable job, and you have people that really don't care. When someone's underpaid and told their standardized test scores will make or break them, don't expect the quality of instruction to be stellar. Don't expect an intellectually stimulating environment that fosters creativity or critical thinking. There's no time for that with a bajillion state tests to pass. It's one of the most important professions a person can have imo; it's a shame.
