If you could change how schools work….”If you could change how schools work, what would you change? What is wrong with how public education for kids is structured? What works well? What specific things about school do you remember, good and bad?”
School for me was a wonderful happy place. I had teachers who challenged me and classmates to compete with. Nowadays I would organize schools far differently. There would be a true push to homeschool.Neighborhood co-ops could form to share expertise in specific subject areas.
For those who don’t want to homeschool there would still be schools. Schools would have teachers who teach to specific learning styles….for instance a math teacher that teaches to the visual learning style, others that teach to the audiotory, others that teach to the kinesthetic, etc. All subjects and grades would give students the chance to have a teacher that specializes in the learning style that helps that student learn. No more square pegs in round holes.
No cliques or group projects. No bullying by students, administrators or teachers. However, getting that stopped is another story and another blog…..:-)
