This is food for thought. I’m not saying I agree 100% with it – limiting the scope of education to everyday needs will surely impose a glass ceiling, and where does religion and its impositions feature? (eg the restrictions of caste) … but yes, in principle, adapt the curriculum to make it relevant and realistic.
