What new practices and developments to you envision the schools of the future will have? For example, ways children are taught, use of technology, security, inclusion classes, etc.
Recently the new trend is to use educational games in the classroom. It's thought that many children and teenagers learn better when they're engaged with the material and interacting with it, as opposed to simply sitting and listening to a teacher talk about it. I'm quite excited about this, as I think used right, educational games could be a great classroom aide.
Something I hope to see less of is, sadly, parental involvement. In my experience too many parents are hypersensitive about their precious babies, and won't accept any criticism. I've seen parents throw incredible tantrums over statements like "Billy sometimes loses focus in History class" or "Angela needs more practice on her spelling". God forbid anyone even imply their kids aren't perfect. This puts incredible pressure on already strained teachers, and simply isn't fair to the people working in the education profession.
Children will be teaching their parents how to survive in the new E-age.

I am personally an advocate for teaching cursive handwriting (and phonetics). I have co-workers who think that it is obsolete and will not be necessary in a few years. What do you think? Should we teach it?
