Ideas for making schools a better place for kids.

Hey, everyone I have been thinking of ways to help make schools a better place for kids and, a more enjoyable place for them, a place they actually want to go too, first and, I think this might be the most important factor, less students in a class room. I think when I was in school, there was around 30 or 40 people in each class and, lets be honest, there is no way a teacher can really keep track of and, teach that many kids, you just can't get each individual student the attention they need. I think classes should be more like 10 students to a class. Another thing that would really help, get cable in the class room. Let kids watch History, Science, Discovery, Animal planet, Nat Geo, you can learn so much from those channels and, it's a lot more enjoyable then just listening to a teacher go on and, on, or reading from a text book, one last very important thing every teacher should be trained in dealing with bullies and, if they see a kid being bullied they should put a stop to it immediately, if a kid is scared of being picked on or beat up, he or she is not going to really be able to pay attention to learning anything.

I agree with your ideas. I reckon more learning activities out of the class too though. Kids don't usually like to be stuck in the same stuffy room for hours on end. They can get agitated very easily and want to go outside. I think about this often too, but I reckon at the start of the very first class, I think the teacher should get everyone to interact with each other. Like literally each student meeting every other student in the class. Sometimes kids can spend their whole year or even years of school not communicating with other students. Which is fine really but I feel bullying may decrease when children get to know one another and may also find they have things in common.

Yeah they should have a balance of things like the cable you mention and a teacher also to interact with the students and let them ask questions if they want. Let them work on plays like they are participating in community theater. They have art class somewhere else. Send the bullies to the principal.

Everything you have mention in your discussion are all great for a good place conducive for learning. But sad to say, my country cannot afford that to happen in a school here especially government schools. Maybe a private school can afford that but not all.
