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 think you mean that we need to go back to the way education was in the industrial revolution. The education for a high school digree was at the age of 14. A basice eduaction should not take as long as it in our schools. Eduation should not be bast on state tests either, unless the child is having problems in school. When I graduated from hih school, I did not even know how to us frations when I was in college. Thats how bad it is getting and that was five years ago. To work at Home depow or lows, you need that basice education. With out it you can not get a job even working at thoughs stores. What is happening to the education I don't know. It is sad when in the UK, children are gradating from high school at 16 either to work a basice educated job or going to college and they know more then what a quorder of americans do in just our basice education alone. I had to learn how to write from someone in India that does not speek english very well. He know more about write english proberly then I did. Thats sad. Very sad.

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 . . . .
