Education In The School System in the 21st Century
After the incident with the police officer and the student in South Carolina, I got to wondering, what people think about our current school system?
Is it being used to teach critical thinking and developing young brains, or is it just too much rot learning which is all about memorization. How much of the classrooms have been turned over to the students with teachers either unable or afraid to discipline the students? How many of the schools have real police officers or sheriffs in their school systems, and how does this impact their work in terms of fighting crime and being deterrent to criminals?
What lessons from the past in education would you like to see brought back? Do you feel that arts is not being taken seriously in the school systems, and also that many schools have totally abandoned vocational learning which can lead to some great jobs in terms of pay and opportunities for advancement.
