Why do you think our schools are failing?
what change do you think needs to take place for them to succeed again? What is the one change you feel is the most important?
You're a priori assuming that schools are failing when on the contrary, children today have much more to learn than just a decade ago.
International schools like IB (which I go to) essentially takes away a person's freedom to do anything except study.
It's ironic because EVERY generation will bash the previous ones. I hear it all the time. Past seniors calls us dumb - we call the freshmans dumb.
I think the illusion is created by the amount of privileges to things like cell phones and ipads children are now able to get.
