Does the Education System of America need to be changed?
Closed

In my opinion, the American Education system is stale, and needs a revolution. Did you know, that we have been using the same education system since the beginning of the industrial revolution? This system was created for people to be trained to be put in a specific type of work force. Now that work force is gone. Come to think of it, there isn't much of a work force in America today. American education is killing creativity and arts, in a world where these days they are the most important thing. What do you think?

I think it does. I think we need more teachers that actually care about teaching. Not all are bad but some seem to have lost the dream. As for budget cuts i am sorry learn a lesson when you are using budgets to build a new football or baseball field or put plasma tvs in school then obviously it is not being used correctly you could buy a ton of new books and materials for classes with that money

Poetry and other types of literature are not taught with earnest consideration of what culture generally likes for example song music is poetry. Imstead pf studying and comparing the wors of popular songs we study poets of an Academic persuasion. Fopr example AMerca supresses play publications as a form of literary rading in favor of workis for hire screenplays changing the original so we never know the original screenplay and movie producers publish screenplays for free on the Internet because of the copyright law. The effect is to supress the availablility of play literature an learning literature. Our knowledges such as math and science are taught separately such as story problems and separate expereiments instead of applied science and math. Foreignlanguages are not begun early enough. Amerifans have to reflect what eduators tells us until the educators who know what the disabled education system is make the changes they know they need to make.

I don't think that the education system needs to be changed, I think the ideas of all the people and the mentality, because there are too many children with problems.

I have to disagree. I am a teacher and have seen a dramatic change in education, especially in recent years. There will be many more changes to come. A national Common Core of education has been developed and many states have adopted it, including my own. There will be more unity in what and how subjects are to be taught. My system has just adopted this and we'll be in full swing within the next 3 to 4 years. Teachers were given a curriculum guide, several workshops, and jumped at this new national program. I hope it works. We need parents to be more involved in their child's education. They can do this by supporting their schools, involving themselves much more in enriching their child's life, and by taking an interest in their child's reading, writing, and math.

I agree with you about an educational revolution . . . . but there are entrenched forces working against that . . . . . the begining of the revolution begins with accountability . . . . make everyone accountable . . teachers, students and parents . . . . . . Michelle Rhea is a good read for anyone interested in reforming Americas broken education system . . . .

I agree with Supersurvey, the American Education system is stale and with all the cutbacks that are directly affecting our educational system it's going to get worse. I compare our educational system to other countries (minus third world of course) and we are so behind. However, I do see some minor changes, for instance, I was helping my son with his 8th grade math homework, I was showing him in the way I was taught in my day, and he said.. "Mom!! What are you doing? That's not how my teacher taught us"!! I told him thats how the problem is solved, he showed me some way.. I don't even know, my way was easier but we're arguing back and forth because the way I was taught in the 80's and early 90's is apparently a thing of the past. So with some degree it's taking changes but they're very slow. My friend has her four year old in pre school and in order to advance pre schoolers today, the teachers have them learning their names, how to write and the alphabet but once they mastered that, they're going to work on math, school age math I guess Kindergarten and first grade math. I can see them beginning to try to improve our educational system but it's going to take time so see a remarkable improvement.

I personally favor changing High Schools to trade schools. Whereby students get the education they need,but are also able to take part in career venues that can helkp when graduating. Too many of our kids today cannot go to college due to lack of funds,yet they may be very book smart,but have no hands on skills they could use to get jobs after graduating. I also favor going back to basics to some degree,as we are raising a generation of kids who cannot read,write or even speak the way they should.And really,what is being taught"in school" these days? Teaching to these so called tests is failing not only our kids,but adding more pressure with more homework to play catch up. Is it really important to send homework home for kindergarten kids?
