I am intrigued by this idea. How learning should be perhaps?
Finland making major education reforms: switches 'subjects' for 'topics'
So rather than having a class on maths, a class on geography and a class on economics, a student might take a class on cafeteria skills that combines skills in various subjects.
The reforms are intended to make skillsets more relevant as they move into the world.
The changes to the education system are beginning now, but will start off only with small amounts of time allocated to topics over subjects.  The changes will be rolled out over several years.

That's a pretty bold undertaking.
