THE TRUTH ABOUT THE EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM!!!

feature-2-chalkboard

The four most important factors affecting educational excellence are the quality of the teachers, the quality or usefulness of the education, the amount of money available for educational resources, and the moral quality of the students and parents in the educational system.

The quality of the teachers is a function of their educational achievement level and teaching ability or an ability to inspire students to do their best in the teacher’s field of expertise.

The quality or usefulness of the education is important because non technological fields are increasingly job poor and mostly a waste of time, energy, and money. Educational priorities must urgently be changed in public education to assure job readiness which may mean the introduction of more vocational and technological training programs earlier in the educational process and much less emphasis on team sports, music, drama or theater, languages, history, and the liberal arts in general.

The amount of money available for teacher’s salaries and educational equipment like computers and lab supplies is also very important but poor school districts not only struggle with less money but many bad teachers and also with offspring coming from dysfunctional families. Money alone will not solve the huge basic social drawbacks of offspring coming from dysfunctional and often immoral families.

The quality of the students depends somewhat on genetic inheritance but much can be achieved with a hard working moral family to back up the student. Unfortunately in poor neighborhoods there are many terrible parental unemployed role models, bad adult role models, and bad friend role models often pushing drug use, disrespect, and irresponsible behavior in general.

Interactive useful audio visual interactive computer education available to students in poor neighborhoods is the ultimate solution which will supply the potential for equal opportunity for all citizens if they put in the time, effort, and achievement necessary. Also this useful audio visual interactive computer education should be made available to all unemployed and destitute humans at any age so that they too see some hope out of their seemingly hopeless poor social circumstances.

However, the dysfunctional social environment of a poor neighborhood still has to be addressed with a universal secular moral code taught to all impressionable young student minds.

Teacher’s unions may extort more money from the school system but their emphasis on seniority and not inspirational teacher excellence is a major drawback. Also union general resistance to educational change to useful audio visual interactive computer instruction are severe handicapping tendencies which stifle educational necessary innovation.

Equal educational opportunity for all the citizens, no matter what the age, in poor neighborhoods is the only long duration system which will be more just than the present status quo handicapping existence or system!!!

THE TRUTH ABOUT TEACHING

teaching

Teach: v. to communicate knowledge and/or skills and/or behavior to another

One on one teaching is the most effective form of teaching in many cases. Teaching to a classroom of students with slow, in between, and fast learners is very inefficient where you bore the fast students and lose the slow students trying to teach to the majority in between students.

In poor neighborhoods absence of discipline, unmotivating dysfunctional families, downward peer pressure, and disrespect of the teachers are all further reasons why traditional classroom teaching fails.

A teacher can try to teach many things to a student but unfortunately experience is sometimes the best teacher when it comes to human relationships and life experiences on the job and elsewhere.

Teachers in poor neighborhoods are plagued with discipline problems and students not willing to learn primarily because of a dysfunctional family life and poor role models who don’t encourage moral, industrious, and achievement oriented behavior.

Most teachers are not paid well and the reason is not obvious to most. Most of them are doing a mediocre job of teaching with mediocre results and deserve mediocre pay.

Quality teachers are rare because poor salaries discourage competence and even good competent teachers feel the frustration of teaching 30 students at a time with a wide range of learning speeds and frequently leave the profession for better more rewarding opportunities elsewhere.

There is some hope that individualized interactive audio visual computer education which is adjusted to your pace of learning may save students from mediocre teaching but only time will tell how speedily it will replace the armies of mediocre human teachers worldwide.

THE TRUTH ABOUT EDUCATION

HOW MUCH you learn is no longer as important as WHAT you learn and HOW you learn it. Many are studying liberal arts and finding the job market to be very poor and are ending up unemployed.

If you are talented and with an excellent memory then computer technology and engineering is still a good field to study and not job poor but that information should be taught as early as possible so they don’t waste their talent sitting through mediocre classes in public school.

The educational system is outdated with teachers still inefficiently trying to teach 20 or 30 students at a time and turning out high school graduates only qualified to do minimum wage work. There should be much more teaching of useful technological skills, basic math, and science and the ideal way is to teach with much individualized interactive AUDIO visual computer education so that students can proceed at their own pace whether very slow or very fast or in between. Same age students can still be in the same classroom but each can be at their own level of achievement thus optimizing education efficiency.

Scientific studies show that text book reading and studying from books results on average only remembering about 10% of what was read after two weeks. AUDIO visual interaction where the students actually speak about what they are learning increases the retention to about 70%. It is obvious that modern students should be speaking about what they are learning and not quietly absorbing what the teacher is teaching the classroom which is very inefficient education.

Poor neighborhoods have bad schools where very little useful knowledge is learned and individualized audio visual education offers the possibility of a good quality education even in a bad quality school system. Ultimately computer education from home will replace public schools with the exception of elementary school where all students must be taught to interact morally with other students with differing learning abilities.

Offspring in poor countries can be educated via a cell phone or computer powered by solar energy where electricity is not available.

Graduate education is becoming prohibitively expensive and a liberal arts education frequently only qualifies you for minimum wage work with a huge student loan to pay back.

Not only WHAT is taught in school has to be changed but HOW it is being taught has to be radically overhauled to make education once again relevant to the technological 21st century.

Education should not be mostly useless information taught students who will not use it in real life when they become adults. History, music, drama, team sports, crafts, and literature is information which very few will use again in real life and should be eliminated from the curriculum. Budgeting with the use of a calculator and computer skills are vital to a good education where the student should be taught the joys of self-education by being able to use search engines to gain useful information.

EDUCATION REFORM is my evergreen truth book which details WHAT should be taught in schools and HOW education must be changed to make education relevant and not just a time killing boring pastime for offspring.
