While I agree with you sir on certain points, I must say for myself I have always been a out of the box thinker. Probably one reason I am a member of
I also see where you say it has been set in stone, BUT, it only takes a hammer to smash a stone and I think the time is upon us finally. Even their
stone is crumbling from "Lack of Funds" and cancelling so many programs across the board in schools. Talk about dumbing down in your face...
Here is a dream, how about specialty schools becoming the norm. Take the schools we have, and let the students decide the classes they like. You like
science or math, well, take those classes. You like to dabble in art, music, sports? Take one of those classes too.
Funny, you get your choice when you go to college. Why not at a younger age? Say you spend the first few years leaning the basics? Math, (add,
subtract, multiple, divide), Reading. I know the norm is reading writing arithmetic, but I think if you can read, you can write. In this day and age,
most just type and text, all ready a training in place.
Even stones wear away after a time after being subjected to the elements... Perhaps a simple change of the elements equation yes?
