There are many arguments against fundamental change in the American educational system, including social issues and student achievement. But the truth is that schools are improving and we have a better system today than we ever had. We need not get caught up in the manufactured stories about an obsolete and broken system. There are numerous simple solutions to these problems. Let’s look at a few of them. This article is not a comprehensive list, but we will consider some of them.
First of all
We need to look at the history of public education. There have been many advances in the field. In the 19th century, children and teachers used large blackboards to teach and record their progress. This was far more effective than today’s technology. Moreover, the school system in Finland is truly remarkable. The schoolchildren had to write their work on small blackboards, and the teachers used chalks. This is still the most effective educational system.
History of education
We should also look at the history of education. Throughout history, it has made some advances and some changes. But a broken system does not necessarily mean that the system is flawed. The system was designed to serve all, and it has been improved over time. It has been improved, but that doesn’t mean that we should ignore it. But we need to keep looking for the solutions. In the meantime, we must take a long-term view and examine the history of the educational system.
