HERE'S A GREAT article about the education system. A belief that the system as it exists in the USA isn't designed for the smart kids. With that said:
In their recommendations, the professors who wrote the brief concluded that “the U.S. K-12 context, which is organized primarily around age-based grade levels, needs serious rethinking.”I'm a long way from deciding what's best for America's school children, but there is a need for serious reforms. That or we just need to shut everything down and start over. Yes I will definitely point finger at public education at least.
I think that’s putting it too mildly.
Honestly, I’m starting to think that this education system doesn’t need to be reformed; it needs to be destroyed.
