Why Athens should be your new city-state!
Athens start teaching young men at the age of six, where they can be taught music, drama, public speaking, government, art, reading, writing, math, and gymnastics. When a child would turn 14, they would go to a primary, or private school. Then at 18, they would enter a military school for two years. After that, they graduated. The goal of the Athenian education was to create well rounded people that were thinkers, well-trained in arts and sciences, and prepared for for both peace and war.
Once you graduate, you can choose to study whichever occupation you want, you are very free to your future, and can follow your dream and do what your best at.
