What do you think of the US education system?
What's your experience with it? Are you a parent, a teacher, a staff member, an advocate, a product of the system, etc?
What changes would you like to see made, and how do you think those changes need to come about?
Any other thoughts?
The curriculum is too rushed. Children who are in 9th grade math are still in 5th grade math. The teachers goal is just to get it done and be over with it. As long as the work is complete, then fine. If the work isn't complete, whatever get it done with and try harder next time.
Rarely are there any systems based on individual learning styles.
Okay, I could complain about everything. Let me just type this out.
1. There should be learning styles for children to choose from.
2. Pizza is not a vegetable. Soda machines do not belong in schools.
3. The woman who said that sandwiches were racially offensive.. she is an example of the idiots teaching today.
4. Children should be able to continue at the grade level that they are in until they have actually learned that subject.
5. There are multitudes of facepalmings going on in my head right now.
6. Have you not received a text message from your average 13 year old..?
"Hai i just wented to sea how r u doing"
The saddest moment of my life was when my cousin said she was going to England. She asked me how big the ocean was that she'd have to cross over. "Is it like a lake?"
She was FOURTEEN! FOURTEENNNN!
