    What do you think is the biggest failing factor in our countries education system today?

    What do you think could change it?

    The inevitable division of knowledge and education caused by the divided power struggle between technology and the necessity to have a work force of laborers trained to maintain it. Access versus limitations, education limited to that which is granted and accessible depending upon your social class and status as a citizen in adult hood. Authority to be autonomous and still be afforded an actual education, and access to equal knowledge as the century progresses forward. This includes religion, politics, and consumerism as they relate to citizen ship and the rights of the children in the school system.

    Equality is not a part of modern education. Access trumps equality. Power is gained by access to knowledge.

    Difficulty.  A lot more could be taught and at greater difficulty levels.  School is just too easy.  To change it, increase standards.  But that would cause such an uproar because we've become accustomed to the way it is.

    I like both of the answers above.  I would also add that education starts in the home and we can teach our kids the value of what they are learning everyday.  I feel like there is too much rote memorization in our educational standard in America, and not enough opportunities to explore and create--this applies to the arts (music, dance, painting, drawing, theater) as well as the math and sciences in the K-12 arena. 

    Even the best public high schools, like Kind Regards says, are way too easy.  Students can take two years of science, three years of math (or test out), and two years of a foreign language to graduate.  All of those subjects should require at least 3 if not 4 years.

    level of knwledge available that is limited by our government .  It is no wonder places like hong kong and tokyo are so far moer advanced than we are they are teaching their school aged kids at college levels. I think we hold our children back from what they can truly learn. I have 3 children and am appalled by the level of knowledge they are taught at.  They all get advanced schooling here at home after the dull requirments at public schools.

    I like how North Carolina does it.  They adjust the curricilum to the child's needs.  This makes the teacher have to do their job as well....which is teach our children.  The state I am in now, it seems all the teacher cares about is a pay check.  I asked at a parent teacher conferance once what one particular teacher was doing to help my child...They actually looked at me like I had 3 heads, and never answered the question.  Teaching starts with the teachers....It's their jobs to help the ones who need help, not push them aside and pass them on to someone else.
