What is your view of the school of the future?

school now is cool but would it be still that cool in the future? i am constantly reminded that this is a work in progress, as are all great challenges. And while the journey has taken many different turns, I’m glad to report that the most important characteristic of this work still exists… hope.So where are we? Well, no matter where we go I get asked the same question. I find it very indicative of where we are as a country in our analysis of education… “What are the test scores showing” well if the performance is just like what we have i our school now i guess the future would just have a minimal margin of progress?what's your side on this?

School has changed a lot over the last several years. There are sometimes where it has changed for the better. Sometimes where it has changed for the worst, in fact a lot of the worst. There are a lot of times where I think that there are a lot of times where there are a lot of teachers that are not suited for the subjects for they are. Thus the students are the ones who are suffering. I do really hope in time that there are going to be some reforms for school. Hopefully it will not continue to slide. I think that really the generation that is currently coming up in grade school and high school are really going to have some struggles that my generation or the generation before it did not have due to the landscape of the school system.

that's really true. teachers are being given subjects that are not their field of specialization. Out-of-field teaching can be empirically damaging in a number of ways. the victims are the students. parents are paying taxes for their scholastic future but the game in the real world is alarming. it's just because of politics. they don't hire more teachers so they can keep the money for themselves. so sad but true.
