Education is Broken
The current education system does not encompass the needs of all of our students. We must strive to create a system which allows students to learn and more importantly retain information in a way which the student is comfortable. Stronger teacher-student connections would, for example, allow the teacher to identify ways in which each individual student could achieve their potential in the classroom thus allowing the students to successfully apply what they’ve learned outside of the class. There are a number of systems in the United States which should be reformed, starting with the Education system. To continue to make positive changes to the world and the United States we need our young students to be equip with accurate, up to date and pertinent information about the world we live in. We need to foster an academic environment that makes students want to learn, makes it interesting, and god forbid… fun. We should strive for students to look upon their day of graduation as an acknowledgement of all they have done and learned, not as the end of a tedious government mandated period of forced learning. Through this we can reclaim our place as an global educational super power, in the fields that will lead us into a technologically complex future, not just in higher education but in secondary school as well.
