In no way am I being defeatist, but there is no single correct answer to this question.  If it is a simple solution you seek, it will be a fruitless quest.  All of the areas you identified are domains where education has to improve.  Assessment, pedagogy, instruction which parallels the 21st Century learner, and the political dimension to education all have to undergo significant examination and reevaluation.  Part of the challenge is that the precise answers are near impossible to find because of the different variables involved in teaching.  Once there is some understanding or common ground reached within all the stakeholders of the education process, there might be some movement in the intense inertia that prevents true and meaningful reform of the education system.
