It definitely contributes. Think of the social ascept of it. It clumps all the below average, average and above average students into the same group and they have to get along socially. If you're smart, you suck. If you`re dumb as a brick, you fit in. Or if at least you pretend to be as stupid as the dumb kids.
Now I`m not ENTIRELY blaming the public school system, but if I had been in a class with people that had around the same intellegence as me and was taught as such, I would have learned WAY more there and wouldn`t have hated school as much as I did.

@OldOllie did you go to a local library and read up about "everything" ? The school system is meant to help the average, if you are bright your going to make it anyway. You were maybe slightly above average, but not bright. If you were bright then you would have done something. Getting sick and tired of people saying that the school system not seeing them as "geniuses" is the reason their life did not turn out the way they wanted..
