I would support a major reform of education from K through 16.
The current system is still based on a system developed hundreds of years ago or more.
There has been much more information today than in the past, and the information of tomorrow will be even greater than today.
So I would target education to getting a job, a better job than one without an education. I would have business and industry fashion the target of the education that they are looking for when they hire help.
I would also encourage the option to go to private schools as well as public schools. The public schools could be the core path, and the private schools could be the specialization path.
I would say that the core would be language, math, and applied science rather than theoretical. Both core and specialization would incorporate using computers and technology.
Also with the increasing class size I would encourage online education to at least augment actual physical classrooms.
K through 10 would be the equivalent of K through 12 today. Grades 11 and 12 would be equivalent to junior college. College would then only have to be two years instead of three or four.
To do this the current curriculum would be streamlined to replace non essential subjects with more of today's more specialized technology. General education courses like history can be offered online, or as an elective. Whereas computer science would be a core subject.
When the Greeks and the Romans started our current education paradigm they were for the rich who were bone idle and academia was their way fo impressing their higher standing on the uneducated. Today, is considerable different, and te majority of the population competes for a limited number of jobs.
