I am designing an alien planet which is inhabited by a peaceful advanced race and I was wondering, do aliens have schools or an education system on their planet? If so, what do you think it would be like?

    $\begingroup$ John, why wouldn't they have schools? What's the purpose of the question? $\endgroup$ – JBH Jul 12 '18 at 6:45

    $\begingroup$ @a4android, developmental psychology is highly dependent on the species to which it is applied. Without any info on these peaceful advanced aliens, we can only make educated guess, which are no more than well dressed opinions. $\endgroup$ – L.Dutch - Reinstate Monica Jul 12 '18 at 9:50

Well, for humanity, it is necessary to pass down knowledge in order for our children and descendants so that our civilization is maintained.

Most western schools use the old fashioned, sit in a desk and listen to the teacher method. You could use that method. Or, you could use a more individual method were each student is taught at their own pace. Your call

Yes, depends on how advanced of an alien race you're referring to, like do they have an economy, transportation, military (for defence).

No, would be if they are of a hive mind type of advanced alien race where intelligence is formed by a number of alien individuals.
