* First, lets define education as 'our youths upbringing in society' instead of 'listen to what is told, okay.'
* Next, please understand that I feel the importance of human to human connection should be put at an emphasis that is equal to or greater than the knowledge received. The internet removes a large portion of it, and we must allow for a platform for our youth to circumvent those aspects of internet... a platform of which is steered by the youth themselves.
Next, these brick & mortar centers are put onto a network... kind of set up like craigslist... with an endless supply of knowledge paths to use, links to giving/receiving charity benefits. The best educators become magnetic, get paid off of link volume like youtubers do, and they don't even have to follow up on the success of the knowledge absorption... the mediators facilitate things at a center level... the children steer their interests to what is learned.
Now the community service part... tuition does not come in the form of money. Each enrolled student will display where they wish to choose to assist their community. And, a log of community service hours will be logged... along with the lessons participated in.
No more old fashioned education... it must be molded to bring humans together. No more 'tests indicates xyz'... time to develop a passion for one another and stop putting self promotion before love. I want scholarships going to the kids that have spent years in the trenches, building humanity... not to the ones that can hold equations locked in their head for an upcoming test.
Personally, I could Ace most tests I took throughout school... but I rebelled to the system and I was quickly removed from the setting for not conforming. I had to work full time throughout high school, so I opted to skip home work. Now, my brain carries things such as, schematics of electric cars that don't need to be plugged in. Maybe we'd all be driving them right now if I wasn't shunned from the school system?

Of the 5 W's, 'why' is much more valuable than any of the other 4. When repairing things/systems all areas are to be analyzed, but 'why' must never come off of the rails for positive things to come of the system in the future. I say this because... hanging onto to federalized school system common practices acts as a cancer and is limiting our youth to being factory workers with accounting degrees. Only a new concept will thrive... and thankfully they are already in action and pushing the fed out of schools.
Funding is the key reason a person does not see their ideas come to reality.
Once again... money. It's always been odd to me that the views of these debates fall into the same stereotypes. Without even knowing your background, I can accurately stereotype that the bulk of your educational upbringing was not spent in a ghetto... I can also accurately stereotype that poor people don't feel accepted into the establishment, and that all of life's achievements happen at a slower rate, with the lack of legacy influence, and a sense of being undermined. Poor people feel, that if rich people feel its so easy to manage successes through youth years... then lets see the rich forego all ties to their finances, live where the poor live, then give an opinion on how easy it is to succeed.
